Top 5 Egyptian Theme Slots in 2021
Egyptian slots are arguably the video slot arena’s most popular theme! There are now hundreds of online slots based on Egypt’s ancient mythology that mixes in mummies, pyramids, hieroglyphics, symbols of life and death, and of course Cleopatra!
Right now, some of the most played Egyptian slot themes surprisingly enough do not include Megaways, Cluster pays or even 243 to 1024-ways-to-win. Instead, they are slots with fixed pay lines with low stakes bets. As such, we decided to take a deeper look at what’s trending amongst slot enthusiasts embracing this popular theme type by compiling a list of the top 5 Egyptian theme slots in 2021!
Book of Dead (Play‘n Go)
Play’n Go’s Book of Dead is one of the most used slots for the free spin portion of welcome bonuses offered by online casinos. It also lays claim as Canada’s most played video slot title to date while it is also a hit across Europe tussling with the likes of Starburst for the number one spot!
It has a min-max bet of 0.10-100.00 and is a high variance 5 reel and 10 pay line slot with an RTP of 96.21% and comes with wilds, scatters, free spins, and a gamble feature!
Legacy of Dead (Play‘n Go)
The Legacy of Dead video slot, also by Play’n Go, has topped the charts across Canada and the UK! It was not an overly popular slot when it was released at the beginning of 2020, but recently it rose through the global slot’s play rankings!
For a title as popular as it is, Legacy of Dead has a surprisingly low theoretical RTP (94.51%). It is also remarkably like its Play’n Go counterpart, Book of Dead.
It has 5 reels hosting just 10 pay lines that give players a low 0.01 spin bet with 1 pay line active and 0.10 bet per spin with 10 pay lines active, while the main attractions are the free spins bonus, expanding symbols, and the double up gamble feature!
John Hunter Book and the Book of Tut (Pragmatic Play)
Since the John Hunter collection began coming out of the Pragmatic Play portfolio, it has become a flagship slot theme for the software developer while becoming one of the world’s most popular Egyptian themes with a twist of adventure!
You have 5 reels and 10 pay lines on which you will follow John Hunter on an Indiana Jones-style escapade in search of the Book of Tut – a book that derives from ancient Egyptian mythology.
While the Egyptian adventurer theme is one attractive aspect of this slot, so are its gameplay features which include 10 free spins, special expanding symbols, a scatter that can pay 200x the spin bet, and a high paying John Hunter symbol that pays 500x the spin bet when you line up 5 on a pay line!
Eye of Horus (RTG)
RTG’s Eye of Horus does appear as part of plenty of welcome bonus offers and bears a slight resemblance to Book of Dead and Legacy of Dead, yet it was released before both the Play’n Go slots! Moreover, this is yet another 5-reel slot with 10 pay lines and a low 0.10 spin bet; a combination that has popped up in this top 5 Egyptian theme slots in 2021!
On this slot title, you take a mystical journey into ancient Egypt in search of 3 ancient pyramids that have the power to trigger 12 free spins with all low paying symbols removed from the reels. Adding to this the base game and free spins round has expanding wilds that bring in regular wins!
Treasure Nile (Microgaming)
Treasure Nile is perhaps the most impressive video slot here because it is still popular after close to two decades circulating on the video slot’s scene. It is a Microgaming progressive jackpot slot with the potential to pay out a €/£/$ 1 million!
It has 5 reels, 9 pay lines, wild symbols, multiplying scatters, and an Egyptian pharaoh symbol that pays 6,000x the line bet if line up on pay lines 1 to 8, while if lands on line 9, the jackpot will drop! As it is a progressive jackpot slot the theoretical RTP is exceptionally low set at 92.11%!
