Ancient Egypt Classic Slot Review: Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play doesn’t seem to sleep as they always have slots lined up one after another. We recently reviewed Vegas Magic, but the slot didn’t look very interesting, which can be the case for a lot of Pragmatics slots. The slots sometimes can be a bit hit or miss. I think because of their frequent slot releases; people are not too excited for their slots anymore which is a shame. Their new slot is called ‘Ancient Egypt Classic‘ and has just been released across all good casino sites. Find out more about it in our Ancient Egypt Classic Slot Review!

The slot has a very common theme and only has one feature which is a bonus. Very basic background for this slot and simple artwork for symbols. It looks rather ancient with an Egyptian theme. The Bonus feature is free spins with a randomly chosen expanding symbol. So the slot is a revamped Book Of Dead with a max win of 5000x. The real question is: CAN IT PAY?

Ancient Egypt Classic Slot Review: Symbols

‘Paytable shows payouts from a £1 stake.’

For symbols, we have five lower tier of 10, J, Q, K, A with different colours for each. Then four higher tier symbols which are theme related. The most top paying symbol pays 500x over five reels. Then there is a scatter for free spins which is also a wild. All in all, as already mentioned, this is quite similar to the Book of Dead. Not much in the way of innovation, but hey, maybe no need to meddle with what’s not broken.

You need 3 or more scatters in the base game to unlock free spins. Again, something very similar to book games. You get ten free spins and a random expanding symbol. If its a premium symbol, you only need 2 or more for expansion to happen. For lower tier, you need 3 or more symbols for an expansion. The payout will vary on which symbol of course. You can have unlimited retriggers for ten additional free spins. There is no other symbol addition such as in Book of Ra Magic or Magic Mirror Deluxe 2. Somewhat a standard fare and nothing innovative from the Pragmatic camp.

Ancient Egypt Classic Slot Review: Conclusion

Overall this slot is rather dull, the theme seems outdated, and there are too many Book Of Dead or Book Of Ra style slots. The originals can pay but this slot seems to be medium volatility. We did not seem to hit any amazing hits during our testing. The base game has no extra features and doesn’t add anything new to the genre. I wouldn’t personally play this slot as it doesn’t seem very volatile but I’m glad Pragmatic is still consistent on releases. The game is already out on all sites for you to try it out.

Disagree with what I think? Remember to pop by my Twitch stream and connect on YouTube. Maybe you guys have seen some big hits here. I’d like to hear them as always!
