Ancient Egypt is a familiar virtual destination for those who’ve been spinning the reels for any length of time and now we’ve got another opportunity to visit in the shape of Wild Scarabs, an online slot from Microgaming with a base game mini-feature and some free spins for your pleasure.
Wild Scarabs is a five reel slot with three rows and two hundred and forty three ways to win – there’s no payline structure, combs can be made as long as there are matching symbols in adjacent rows starting from the left hand side. Marble columns frame the reels which float high above a landscape of contemporary Egypt.
There are some familiar high value symbols here including representations of two gods, an Ankh and the Eye of Ra; lower values are six sparkling gems in various colours – orange, yellow, green , blue, dark blue and purple.
The wild is the scarab and it will replace all others to help form winning matches except for the staff head scatter symbol.
This can occur on any non-winning spin in which a wild scarab lands on reel three; up to four extra wilds will now be placed on the reels to form a guaranteed win.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere in view and you will now receive ten free spins. During this round any wild symbol which do not contribute a win are collected and when you have three they will be added back onto the reels to form a guaranteed win.
Unfortunately it’s not possible to trigger any more spins from within this feature.
Wild Scarabs is a good-looking slot with some pared-back, intricate graphics which suit the theme very well; there’s a nice relaxing soundtrack, one feature which triggers regularly (the Wild Deal), one which is a bit trickier to hit (Free Spins) and an RTP of 96.28%.
