Jewel Scarabs Slot Review – Red Tiger Gaming

Red Tiger Gaming has had a very successful year as all studios have. The provider was acquired by NetEnt for a big sum. Since this occurred there have not been any differences in either studio. NetEnt has not changed Red Tiger in any way. Which is what I think the casino community wanted. The end of the year is coming up quickly. Which has resulted in 2020 game dates being announced. Red Tiger Gaming has just released ‘Legendary Excalibur’, which is a big let down with a max win of 500x. The first game announced for 2020 by the provider is ‘Jewel Scarab’, which is set to release 9th January 2020.

Jewel Scarab an ancient Egyptian theme, which seems very popular in the casino industry currently. The background is set in the dessert with pyramids and camels seen in the sunset. There is beautiful detail on the reel border, which is inspired by the Egyptian theme. The visuals for this game are well made and represent the set theme very well.

This game has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 9 set pay lines. Jewel Scarabs is a medium variance game, due to the set RTP of 95.77% and max win capped at 5,245x. You can bet from £0.10 – £10.

Jewel Scarabs Symbols & Paytable

Jewel Scarabs has 10 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by Eye of Ra, birds, cats, and Anubis. In addition to these paying symbols is a scarab scatter/wild symbol. Which substitutes for all symbols. The highest paying symbol is the wild/Anubis, both symbols pay 180x for 5 across a pay line.

Jewel Scarabs Features

The wild scarab symbol is very valuable in the gameplay. This is a wild symbol that flies around the reel set, while it is part of win lines.

Central to this game is the ‘Golden Spins’ feature. This is triggered when 3 or more scarab scatters land during one spin. The scarab symbols that trigger this feature remain on the reel set. These symbols will now have a multiplier which starts at 1x. When they are part of a winning combination, the multiplier will increase by 1x with no limit. These wilds will remain on the reel set until the feature ends.


Overall, this game is simple but has an exciting free spins feature. The max win on offer is somewhat generous and features are simple but effective. The Egyptian theme is saturated now but seems popular in providers’ eyes. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
