How to win big in Mysterious Egypt – Free Spins

During free spins, special symbols expand to cover their entire reel as long as this action results in a win. Furthermore, special symbols pay anywhere along a payline, not just from adjacent symbols starting at the leftmost reel. Low value symbols pay for 3 or more of a kind on a payline whereas high value symbols pay for 2 or more.

- Buy a Bonus
As with all Book clones, the scatter in Mysterious Egypt doubles up as a wild. The scatter is also one of the highest paying symbols, awarding 200x the bet size for a full payline.
Mysterious Egypt also comes with a Bonus Buy option which costs 100x the chosen bet size to guarantee triggered free spins. This option is not available in the UK and may not be available in other jurisdictions.
Look and Feel of Mysterious Egypt
This slot looks exactly as you would expect, like a Book of Ra clone. The design may be a little sharper than the early 90’s original, but it's nothing to write home about. It's a standard temple and ankh’s territory. The addition of an extra expanding symbol during free spins is something I suppose but hardly a ground breaking innovation.
Lows are royal playing card values with Horus, Anubis, a pyramid, and the Eye of Horus as the premiums. The Eye of Horus trumps all other symbol values with a full payline awarding 500x. See all symbol values below (based on €1 bet0.
