Nights of Egypt Expanded Edition Slot Review
Our favourite Egyptian Queen returns to the reels in this latest edition of the Nights of Egypt Series. Once again, the slot is identical to the original game, with the only difference being an added reel to the grid. If you have played Nights of Egypt before, then there is absolutely nothing that you didn't know already in this review. I suppose the benefit of having an extra reel is like when you are on the last day before payday then suddenly find an extra 100 bucks in your pocket.
Nights of Egypt Expanded Edition is a 6x3 reel, 25 payline slot powered by Spinomenalsoftware. Symbols include Royal Card Suits (10-A), Ankhs, Gold Cobra Snakes, Bastet Statues, and Scarabs. Special Symbols include the Egyptian Queen Wild, the Free Spins Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature, and the Book Bonus Symbol that triggers the Bonus Feature. There is also a Buy Feature, random Stacked Wild, and Double Symbols Features. More detail will be given in the Features section.
Below the reels (from left to right) are the controls starting with the Question Mark icon that expands to the Paytable and How to Play information, Adjustable Bet per Line window, the Buy Feature button, the Spin button, Autoplay button, the Win window, and the Balance and Total Bet windows below.
Features in Nights of Egypt Expanded Edition include the Egyptian Queen Wild, the Free Spins Scatter that triggers the Free Spins Feature, the Book Bonus Symbol that triggers the Bonus Feature, the random Stacked Wild and Double Symbols Features, and the Buy Feature.
The Egyptian Queen Wild substitutes for all symbols, except the Free Spins Scatter and Books Symbol, to form potential winning combinations.
The Stacked Wilds and Double Symbols Features can occur at random during the base game, and the Free Spins Feature.
Land 3 Free Spins Scatters to trigger the Free Spins Feature where a wheel of fortune appears to determine your number of free spins (up to 40) and the symbol that will appear as double throughout the feature. The feature cannot be retriggered.
Land 3 Book Bonus Symbols to trigger the Bonus Game, awarding 3 free spins on special bonus reels with a multiplier meter on the left. The reels contain hieroglyphic engravings, but once the reels spin, they change into Books or 1 extra free spin, every 5 Books you land, the higher the multiplier meter reaches (up to 500x).
If you don't have the patience to wait for the Free Spin Feature to land, you can buy it via the Buy Feature by clicking the Buy Feature button on the control panel. The Free Spins Feature will cost you 38x your stake.
Unfortunately, there are no unique features to this slot.
Nights of Egypt Extended Edition provides nothing new from the original game, except the additional reel and higher payout values in the Bonus Game. However, thanks to the features, you can land some big wins. The graphics, animation, and sound effects are gorgeous, giving a genuinely Ancient Egypt feel. The RTP is a low 95.16%, with medium volatility.
The max coin win is 2000x your stake.
One would think that releasing a sequel would provide a bit more than just adding an extra reel. Sure, the max win and multiplier win in the Bonus Feature is up, but the gameplay is just a rehash of the original. So Nights of Egypt Expanded Edition expanded to a bit of a flop, in my opinion.
