Ancient Egyptian mythology is a popular theme within the gaming industry. In fact we find pokies like Secrets of Horus, also by NetEnt, which share this same theme. This is not surprising if you think how fascinating this old civilisation, that lived along the River Nile, is to many people.
So much has been speculated about the old royalties that lived at the time, and it is common knowledge that most of them were very very rich. Now you will have the opportunity to take the treasures away from them, and as usual we shall give you all the necessary information for you to be able to do so.
We will not beat around the bush, and will start this review by explaining the most exciting feature of this pokie, a feature which we haven’t seen in any other pokies so far. This is the Golden Bet Line, wherein before every spin one payline chosen at random is highlited in gold. And you might now think, so what’s the point in having a golden bet line? Basically, if you get a winning combination on that golden payline, then payout is multiplied x2, x3, x4 or even x5! So what could have been an ordinary profit, might turn out to be a big win.
Other than that, we can say that Egyptian Heroes is a rather standard pokie from Net Entertainment. It has five wheels, three rows and twenty active paylines. The coin level can be adjusted between one and ten, whereas the coin value can vary from €0. 01 to €0. 50. So a single game can cost as little as €0. 01 or as much as €100. It will be all up to you to decide how much you would like to put at stake.
Another exciting feature found in Egyptian Heroes, which some of you might have already come across, is the expanding wild symbol. The wild symbol is represented in the form of a pyramid, and for those who might have never seen how it works, we shall now explain this particular feature. The expanding wild symbol can appear on reels two, three or four, and if it’s part of a winning combination it will change the whole reel into a wild reel. This means that the chances of winning are subtantially increased, and when this happens profits are usually very big.
Moreover, if the wild symbol shows up during a free spin, which is of course another feature available in this pokie, then the wild symbol will not only be an expanding wild but also sticky. A sticky wild feature means that basically it locks into its specific position for all the free spins round, making such round a very profitable one besides being free! Free spins are activated when three or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the wheel. You can win up to twenty free spins, depending on how many scatter symbols are displayed.
Besides this you will also find the usual settings and adjustments provided by NetEnt. For instance, you can decide to use the autospin setting with which the wheel will spin for a pre-set amount of times. You can also choose to make changes with respect to graphics and sounds. Well, the best way to really know what we’re talking about is to try it for yourselves on this page. Then you will notice how easy such changes are to perform.
While doing so, you might notice that Egyptian Heroes is quite graphically demanding on your computer. So some players might wish to compromise on the graphics in order to get a faster and smoother game. Here we would like to reassure you that even with the lower graphic settings, the pokie still gives a very satisfactory gaming experience.
To conclude we shall say that Egyptian Heroes is a pokie of very high quality, just like most of the other pokies by Net Entertainment. We must say that our favourite feature seen in this pokie is the Golden Bet Line feature, followed by the Expanding wilds. Egyptian Heroes will appeal to old and new casino players alike, especially those with an inclination towards Egyptian history and mythology.
