Egyptian-themed video slots are amongst the most popular ones you can find on online casinos. Bearing this in mind, Microgaming has released recently, just in June 2016, Wild Scarabs. Although it was released just a few months ago, this video slot is already considered one of the most popular games available on online casinos in the UK.
How to Play the Game
Having the right theme and a giant like Microgaming behind this slot, it’s really no wonder that this game has reached the top so early. There are plenty of websites providing Wild Scarabs, many of them giving you the possibility to try and learn the game first in the play for free mode. If you feel lucky and confident enough you can move straight to the real money mode, to discover the prizes this amazing slot has to offer. When spinning the reels you will definitely stumble across symbols like six sparkling gems of different colours with a lower value (purple, dark blue, blue, green, yellow and orange), but also an Ankh and the Eye of Ra.
How to Win the Game
Although it has the layout of most of the slots, with 5 reels and 3 rows, this casino title includes 243 pay lines (so plenty of ways to win) and has a 96.28 % RTP. Bets can start at 20p and can go as high as 60 £, whilst the jackpot can reach the value of 360000 coins. Now this explains the popularity of the game. Special features would include:
- The wild scarab is capable of replacing missing icons (except scatter) to create a winning combination. The Wild Deal happens on non-winning spin when the wild lands on the 3rd reel completing the rest of the row with wilds and creating a winning combination;
- The scatter symbol is represented by the staff head and it activates 10 free spins if landed at least 3 times
Very quickly this video slot has become the online slot sensation in the UK, which speaks a lot of the trust the players have in games released by Microgaming, especially when they have a really attractive theme like Ancient Egypt.
