Egyptian Riches from WMS
Egyptian Riches is another Egyptian themed online and brick and mortar video slot from Williams Interactive Software. This is a low variance slot, which means that it is unlikely that big wins will happen, but small wins happen often. This is particularly great for the casual slot player, who is in it more for the fun than for hitting the big jackpots.
Another tip is to use a low variance game such as Egyptian Riches to build your bankroll before moving on to higher variance games and hopefully striking it big. This video slot is built in Adobe Flash when being played online, which means that it can be played directly from your web browser without any download needed.
This is especially useful if you do not have much memory on your device, or are worried about downloading programs. It does mean however that you will have to log into the hosting casino each and every time that you want to play Egyptian Riches.
Egyptian Theme and Symbols
As mentioned there are countless Egyptian themed video slots on the market at the moment. Egyptian Riches does however stand out a bit by having a slightly different take on the theme. The back ground to the reels is abstract instead of the overdone pyramids or desert look.
The graphics are historically accurate, and very beautifully rendered. They look like a lot has of effort has gone into them to make sure they stay away from the cartoony trap that a lot of other Egyptian slots fall into. The reels are edged with what looks like Egyptian beadwork, and the buttons at the bottom are green and gold. All in all this is a classy looking slot that does stand out from the Egyptian crowd.
The symbols are of course all Egyptian themed, but you wont find over used Egyptian pharaohs on these reels. You will however find Anubis, an Ankh, the Eye of Ra, a Falcon, scarabs a cartouche and a vase. There are no playing card base symbols, which means that there is a wide variety of other, rather pretty ones. All the symbols have gold in them, relating I guess to the riches part of Egyptian Riches, and look good against a plain white background.
Egyptian Riches Wild and Bonus Round
The Egyptian Riches logo stands in as the games wild symbol, and substitutes for all symbols in the game except for the Bonus symbol. The wild logo is also the games highest paying symbol and five in a line will see you wining the 25,000 coin standard jackpot.
The bonus round is triggered by finding three or more bonus Cleopatra symbols anywhere on the reels. The player will then be taken to a second screen where you will get the chance to choose at least one scarab symbol. Under the scarab will be a total that will be added to all of your previous wins so far. Once this is done you then get to pick treasure chests, that will reveal either cash values, more scarabs, or if you are unlucky, the collect symbol. If you find the collect symbol you will be kicked back to the base game, but will still retain any online keno bonuses that you managed to accrue in the bonus round.
