Egyptian-themed pokies are available in Australian online casinos and Doom of Egypt is another to add to the list. Play’n Go have a reputation for creating fun pokies, does Doom of Egypt follow this trend?
The first thing you notice is Doom fo Egypt is remarkably similar to the “book” series by Play’n Go. Some reviews called Doom of Egypt a reskin of Book of Dead. While that is true to some degree, Doom of Egypt is unique in its own way.
Doom of Egypt Facts and Figures
You will not get lost seeing if you have won because Doom of Egypt features only 10 paylines. This is low compared to other pokies but do not let it stop you from giving a try. Those 10 paylines are spread across a 5×3 reel and row setup.
Its Return To Player (RTP) is also low at 96.21%, similar to the Book series of pokies. Those of you preferring low volatility should avoid Doom of Egypt, however, as Play’n Go rate it as high.
The minimum bet per line is 0.01 coins with the maximum set at five coins. This equates to a maximum bet size of $50. There is a jackpot in addition to the free spins features and this pays out 5,000 times your maximum bet. The mathematicians among you will know this equates to a maximum payout of $250,000.
Reels, Symbols, and Visuals
Doom of Egypt has an ancient Egyptian feel and is set inside a burial chamber. It is visually appealing, like the majority of Play’n Go pokies, and it sounds good too. Symbols include the tried and tested A, K , Q, J and 10 royals. Players also see scarab beetles, plus Egyptian pharaohs Ramses, Thutmouse and Amenhotep. Anubis, the God of the Dead, also makes an appearance.
The special symbols make for some big payouts when five of them appear on a single winline.
- Scarab Wild pays 500x for five on a payline
- Anubis pays 500x for five on a payline
- Amenhotep pays 200x for five on a payline
- Thutmouse pays 75x for five on a payline
- Ramses pays 75x for five on a payline
- Royals pay between 15x and 10x for five on a payline
Doom of Egypt Features and Bonuses
Unfortunately, Doom of Egypt is devoid of features with only one available. This is disappointing because it already has a low RTP and high volatility. Thankfully, the free spins feature in Doom of Egypt is potentially profitable.
Free spins are triggered when at least three scarab beetles are landed on the same spin. Ten free spins are initially awarded but there is a twist. A random symbol is chosen t be the expanding symbol before the free spins activate. Land this symbol and it expands to fill the entire reel, which leads to large payouts.
It is possible to trigger the free spins round again while in free spins mode. Simply land three scarab beetles and you receive another 10 free spins. Sadly, this can only happen once for a total of 20 free spins.
The maximum win is 5,000 times your bet, so up to $250,000. This is decent even for a high volatility pokie machine, especially one without a true jackpot. You pocket this massive prize by filling the screen with either wilds or the Anubis symbol. Do that and up to $250,000 is all yours.
We enjoyed playing Doom of Egypt but we could not help think the pokie was lazy. Other reviewers have commented how it is a simple reskin of Book of Dead. We agree. There is almost no difference except for a couple of cosmetic features so pick the one you prefer.
Doom of Egypt is for those who want a simple high variance pokie with potential a 5,000-times payout. We suggest you find another pokie if that is not what you are looking for.
