Dawn Of Egypt Slot Review – Play’n Go

Today we are returning to the year 2020 to learn all about an old Play’n Go slot release. I recently reviewed the provider’s latest game announcement ‘Hotel Yeti – Way‘, which has a max win capped at 30,000x and a Free Spins feature with a multiplier up to 64x. Today we are learning all about ‘Dawn Of Egypt‘, originally released 20th February 2020.

It seems to Play’n go have a soft spot for the ancient Egypt-themed games. With previous success from ‘Book Of Dead’, many games have followed with the same theme. Now we have a game sequel for ‘Legacy Of Egypt‘, which was originally released back in 2018. The game had some popularity due to the bonus feature and frequent bonuses/retriggers. Dawn Of Egypt has two golden bird statues on either side of the reel set. The reel border is also gold with hints of blue. The background is set in an ancient city with beautiful buildings and colours. Overall the visuals are well crafted for this game.

Dawn Of Egypt has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 10 set pay lines. This game is medium variance due to the max win capped at 5,000x and set RTP of 96.23%. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.

Dawn Of Egypt Symbols

This game has 13 symbols in total, this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K, and A. There are also 6 premium symbols, these are represented by lotus flowers, ankh’s, scorpions, snakes, Bastet, and horus. In addition to these paying symbols is a scarab wild, pyramid scatters, and wild scatter. The highest paying symbol is Horus, which pays 100x for 5 across a pay line.

Dawn Of Egypt Features

Central to this game is the Free Spins feature, this is triggered when you land 3 or more scatters during one spin. Scatters pay anywhere and do not need to be on a pay line. Up to 20 free spins can be awarded on the wheel of gods.

On each Free Spin, a high-paying symbol will be randomly selected and all low-paying symbols will transform into it. The scatter can change into a wild scatter symbol, this will act like a wild and substitute for all symbols. If 2 or more wilds land during a free spin, the pyramid free spins will be triggered. Free spins will pause and pyramid spins will begin. The selected symbol upgrade on the triggering spin will be retained for the duration of the pyramid spins. Each wild scatter that triggers the pyramid spins will award up to 4 spins, up to 20 spins.


Overall, I think the community is getting bored with the ancient Egyptian theme for the new slot releases. However, this release is a great sequel and has exciting gameplay thanks to the features included. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
