Golden Wheels of Egypt Overview

And it’s time for another new online slot game release by NetEnt. And this time the game is called Golden Wheels of Egypt.

Of course the Egyptian theme has always been popular to use for slot games. Some providers, like Play’n Go and Pragmatic Play even have a huge selection of these games. But somehow NetEnt seems to only have a couple of relic games, which could be Egyptian, but also Inca or Mayan. And Pyramid: Quest for Immortality, which is definitely an Egyptian themed game.

The reels are set against an ancient Egyptian city and the symbols are very bold and colorful.

The game uses 5 reels that are each 3 symbols high and comes with 20 paylines.

Besides standard, low paying, card symbols you will also find high paying Egyptian symbols like a scarab and an Ankh. Then there is also a wild symbols, which can appear on all reels. And lastly the bonus symbols, or scatter symbols, which only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.

Golden Wheels of Egypt comes with a maximum payout of 5.000 times your bet and is a medium to high volatile slot game.

  • Sticky Wild – A sticky wild will be placed on the middle spot of reel 3 for the duration of all spins
  • Walking Wild – A wild symbol will be placed on the reels and will move to a new adjacent spot after each spin, it will never cover a sticky or other Walking Wild
  • Symbol Transform – One randomly picked high paying symbol will become an extra wild symbol
  • Super Stack – One randomly picked high paying symbol will now appear as super stacked symbol. If this symbol is the same as the Transform symbol, the wilds will appear super stacked

The same type of modifiers can become active during free spins, except Super Stacked.

You can’t win extra free spins during any of the features.

Verdict

This new game from NetEnt was really enjoyable for me. I like the way it looks. Sure it’s another Egyptian themed game, but because of the big symbols, it feels fresh.

And then the features. I like the fact that 2 bonus symbols will also award free spins. But of course you want those normal free spins. With the right combination of modifiers. Of course the best one is probably a stacked symbol that also becomes wild. But there are several interesting combinations. This type of bonus is very similar to Golden Fish Tank by Yggdrasil, which is also a game I highly enjoy.

Maybe the bonuses aren’t anything new, but I think NetEnt released a solid new, Egyptian themed, slot game with Golden Wheels of Egypt.

Now available at all NetEnt casinos.
