Back to Ancient Egypt – a common theme for online slots – with this game from IGT, Golden Egypt. This slot will feel familiar to seasoned players as it does not stray too far from the theme of many other games. The graphics are OK if not superb, with a backdrop of Egyptian landscapes and deserts, while the soundtrack is inoffensive if not sparkling and inspiring. Having said that, this is a good game to play.
Rather than the usual symbols associated with Egyptian themed slots, this one uses a selection of characters and images that are not hieroglyphs. This is one of few unusual touches to what is a good but not special design.

The Gold Coin is a wild symbol which activates a simple yet potentially lucrative bonus, while alternative bonus symbols take you to a different extra game that yields a possible jackpot. If we’re describing this game as a touch bland that’s because compared to some of the slots out there it lags a bit in interest.
Having said that, Golden Egypt is a popular choice at online casinos, perhaps because it is familiar and easy to get to grips with, so if you are happy with a medium volatility game this could be one for you.
How to Play Golden Egypt
The five-reel, four-line layout gives 25 pay-lines and will be recognisable to most players. Look for symbols such as the Sphinx, Eye of Horus, Cleopatra and Gold Coins – among many other typically Egyptian themed symbols – the latter of which trigger bonus rounds.
Wild reels come into play with the appearance of the Gold Coin symbols and alternative bonuses are also offered in the form of multiplying free spins. With a maximum 300x pay-out this is not going to create any millionaires, but the level of volatility and RTP are decent enough to engage the player.
Available for use on iOS and Android devices of all types, Golden Egypt offers sensible rewards when you get lucky.
Special Features of Golden Egypt
Special features of the game include:
- The Bonus symbol triggers a free spin feature in which the player can choose from low, medium and high variance, with the latter offering fewer spins but more wild reels.
- Gold Coin symbols also trigger a free spins feature.
While not the most innovative of games, Golden Egypt is none the less a fun game to play and one with some interesting features.
