April Fury & The Chamber of Scarabs Slot Review

You know the expression about a woman scorned, right? Sometimes they don’t need to be scorned to lose the plot entirely.

I have a friend who has a heart of gold, is super generous and wealthy, and would never cheat on his partner. Or at least, I don’t imagine so, but hey, who knows?

One of his ex-girlfriends was bipolar and always angry with him over some imagined slight. He came home once and she brained him with a pot plant and dragged his ass into the house.

She’d thrown paint on the walls, cut up his clothes, and bashed the car he’d bought her. Talk about mad as a rattlesnake. The heroine in our next game isn’t angry, but her surname implies that she might get a little peeved occasionally.

This is April Fury & The Chamber of Scarabs slot from Betsoft Gaming.


Angelina Jolie totally usurped Harrison Ford as the intrepid explorer of modern times and here’s another tribute to her adventurer prowess.

Our game’s bespeckled sexy mamacita has been rendered so lovingly and with such minute detail that she seems to be alive each time she blinks her eyes. Or maybe she’s just winking at me. Yeah, I haven’t had a date for a while – can you tell?

Naturally, our play area is in some Egyptian crypt and you’ll see the sarcophagus shake as bats come flying past to add a dramatic sense of theatre to this stunning-looking game.

I’ll bet you’re wondering if it’s all looks and no substance, but fear not my peeps, this slot packs a punch. There are 20 paylines, for starters, an RTP of 96.20%, and a high volatility rate.

The max multiplier is 4,000x and the most you can win is a gargantuan €320,000. Talk about a Pharoah’s fortune! All currencies are also available so you can play with the money of your choice.

The Wild replaces all symbols other than the Scatter and Bonus symbols. Wilds appear on all of the reels.



The key symbol is the Scatter and you’ll need 3, 4, or 5 to trigger 5, 7, or 9 Free Spins respectively. Not a lot of spins that…

Free Spins can also be re-triggered by landing an additional 3+ Scatter symbols.


The Scarab coin is the Bonus symbol and 6 or more trigger the Hold & Win round. The triggering symbols are locked in place while the remainder of the positions spin, with only blanks or other Scarab coins filling the spots.

You’ll get 3 spins at the start of the festivities and each newly-landed coin will reset the spin counter. The coins’ multiplier values range from 1x to 500x and these will be revealed on the new coins as the Scarab scuttles off.

The round ends when you run out of spins or when all of the positions are filled. Then, all the multipliers will be added together and multiplied by your bet.

The Hold & Win feature can be triggered from the base game or the Free Spins round, but Free Spins can’t be activated from the Hold & Win round.


Buy your way into the Free Spins round:

  • Option 1: 5 Free Spins for 144x
  • Option 2: 7 Free Spins for 201.60x
  • Option 3: 9 Free Spins for 256x


Despite its ancient theme, April Fury & The Chamber of Scarabs slot has modern tech working in the shadows to ensure it runs smoothly on any device or browser. And that’s indeed how things played out during testing.

Maximum Win

There’s a Pharoah’s fortune worth €320,000 waiting to be won! All you have to do is combine a max bet of €80 (the minimum is €0.20) with the max multiplier of 4,000x. Easy, right?


This is a super simple Hold & Win oriented game that looks the biz on any device. If you like to take your games on the go, this one should tick your boxes perfectly as portrait or landscape modes look amazing.

You’ll need to be patient while playing April Fury & The Chamber of Scarabs slot because triggering the Hold & Win feature takes time. At least you can buy your way into the Free Spins round, where you can also hope to trigger the main feature.

There’s nothing to criticize when it comes to the stats so if Hold & Win games are your thing, then check it out.
