Vault of Anubis
Play Vault of Anubis on
Released on 26th March 2020, Vault of Anubis is the latest cluster pays slot from NetEnt subsidiary, Red Tiger. This Ancient Egypt themed slot thankfully steers clear of any Book of Ra type tendencies. Instead, it offers an adventure into the plentiful Vault of Anubis, the Ancient Egyptian God of death, mummification, embalming, the afterlife, cemeteries, tombs, and the Underworld.
The cluster pays mechanic plays on a large 7x6 grid where clusters of 5 or more adjacent identical symbols pay. A cascading symbols mechanic is also in play where disappearing winning combos make multiple wins possible from the same spin. This highly volatile game comes with an RTP of 95.74% and a maximum single win in excess of 5,000x the bet size.
Vault of Anubis features includes Super Symbols, Generous Gods bestowing random wilds, and a superb Vault Spins round with unlimited win multipliers.
Depending on your chosen casino you can play Vault of Anubis from €0.20 up to €100 per spin.

Design & Symbols
Vault of Anubis has a simple, somewhat familiar design with it hieroglyphics, fire pits lighting up the entrance to the vault, and stone statues of Anubis guarding either side of the entrance. The steps leading up to the large entrance (which houses the gameboard) with the huge, imposing Anubis guards sets an imposing scene. The gameboard sits at the top of the stairs, with the symbols on stone blocks inscribed with more hieroglyphics. The game’s logo appears in a blue neon above the centre of the grid along with a golden Anubis, underneath which a 4-part scatter meter sits. Otherworldly Arabian music accompanies play.
Low-value symbols are a golden bowl and the playing card suits, clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades. The high-value symbols are an emerald scarab, the Pharaoh’s crook and flail, the eye of Horus and Anubis himself. Anubis is the highest paying symbol with a maximum single cluster win of 30 or more symbols awarding 750x the bet size. A precious Egyptian gem is a wild symbol, and the scatter is the Vault Spins symbol.
- Super Symbols
- Generous Gods
- Vault Spins
Any of the high-value symbols also appear as Super Symbols in sizes of 2x2 or 3x3 which enable biggest clusters to be made more easily.
This feature occurs randomly at the end of any spin. The two Anubis Statues glow and cause any number of symbols to turn wild, leading to a winning spin.
Both aforementioned features occur in both the base and bonus games.
Four Vault Spin scatters are required to trigger 10 Vault Spins. They may all land during the first cascade or over the course of a series of connected winning cascades. When all four parts of the Vault Spins meter are filled, Vault Spins begin.
During Vault Spins a 1x win multiplier is added for each winning cascade, and multipliers are unlimited for as long as the round continues. A new symbol appears on the reels during Vault Spins, a + SPIN symbol which awards up to 8 additional free spins upon landing.
Our Thoughts on Vault of Anubis
Vault of Anubis is yet another thoroughly engaging, atmospheric, and enjoyable game from Red Tiger. Although there is not necessarily anything new here, all the features work well together, and the cluster pays format combined with the increasing win multipliers can quite often bring in some heart-stopping wins during the Vault Spins round. It is possible I am seeing this game in a brighter light than I otherwise might as I have to admit to hitting the right side of variance during my several hours of play. Nonetheless I have had beginners luck before and not enjoyed it nearly as much as I did with this slot. The potential is there with wins of over 5,000x the bet size possible, and the hit frequencies are decent for such a volatile game. No complaints here, just a top-notch slot with a popular theme from one of 2020’s stand-out providers.
