Design & Symbols
There are some interesting elements to the design here. You’ll notice in the intro I said this slot had an Egyptian theme rather than an Ancient Egyptian theme, and that’s because there are both ancient and futuristic elements to the design. The gameboard itself is all Ancient Egypt with hieroglyphics covering the reels as well as the famous Ancient Egyptian symbols. There are also pyramids in the background and Ancient Egyptian boats sailing across the harbour. However, there are also very futuristic looking buildings among the pyramids as well what look like fighter jets flying overhead. Even more strange is the enormous plant visible to the right of the gameboard. There is certainly no planet of that magnitude that close to earth so is this Egypt at all?
Low value symbols are the standard royals J-A. High value symbols are bracelets, sacred amulets, scarab beetles and ankh crosses. The ankh cross is the most valuable regular symbol, paying 5x the bet size for 5 adjacent symbols. The scatter is a golden pyramid and Anubis is the wild as well as being the most valuable symbol of all, with 5 adjacent Anubis paying 10x the bet size.
- Anubis Wilds
- Free Spins with Anubis Wilds
The Anubis Wilds feature is triggered randomly during a base game spin. When triggered an unspecified number of wild symbols wild appear on the board during the course of a spin. Although the wilds have the potential to lead to some big wins, no win is guaranteed from the Anubis Wilds feature.
Free Spins with Anubis Wilds
10, 15, or 20 free spins are awarded for landing 3, 4, or 5 pyramid scatters. 3, 4, or 5 additional spins are awarded during free spins for landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters. Ankh of Anubis offers unlimited retriggers.
During free spins, the Ankh symbol takes on a purple background and a purple progress meter appears above the first reel. The progress reel counts how many Ankh symbols land during the course of the free spins round. When the meter reaches 5 Ankh symbols the Anubis Wilds feature is activated and the meter resets.
Our Thoughts on Ankh of Anubis
I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing Ankh of Anubis. It may not be bursting with features, but the features are solid and can pay well. The Anubis Wilds often deliver multiple and stacked wilds, and I was surprised at how many decent wins I picked up during the base game. The free spins round is also great fun; Anubis Wilds are usually triggered several times during the course of an average free spins round, and retriggers are relatively abundant here when compared to other slots high variance slots. Furthermore, with a maximum win of 15,000, this is a slot with plenty of potentials.
I’m impressed with Play‘n GO’s effort here; the volatility is high enough for the action junkies, but not so high as the scare of some of the more casual players. The features are bountiful, and the potential is fantastic. And it’s not a Book of Ra clone!
