A Scarabs Adventure in Scarab Gold
Next in our game reviews comes Scarab Gold, another online slot that takes players back to the height of ancient Egypt. With reels full of pyramids, sphinxes and Pharaohs and a huge 15,625 payline setup, this is one of the more exciting Egyptian games out there.
Of course, Ancient Egypt is one of the more popular themes for online slots, because the images of pyramids and the mummified Pharaohs within automatically conjure thoughts of riches and wealth. Scarab Gold is a game that does the genre justice with bright colours and artful graphics.
Now, Scarab Gold doesn’t just rely on its 15,625 paylines to deliver an exciting dose of reel action. There are three bonus features to hit during regular play.
Cascading Wins is a feature that is always in play, removing winning symbols from the reel grid and replacing them with new ones. This repeats and continues until no more winning combinations are left onscreen.
Extra wins abound with the Mystery Symbol feature. This is triggered randomly by blank stone symbols on the reels. These symbols remain inactive until a gemstone scarab symbol appears at the same time. These scarabs then crawl to the blank stones, creating matching symbols for extra wins.
Scatter symbols are the key to unlocking the main bonus feature of Scarab Gold, with three triggering the night-time free games feature. This takes you from the bright desert to a cool nightscape, with increasing win multipliers as you play.
