Things to Look for When Playing Egyptian Slot Games

It is easier than ever to head to ancient Egypt when you love playing slot games. There are dozens of games around featuring this theme, and many of them have similar features.

While this does make it harder for any one game to stand out among the crowd, it also lends a familiarity to any game in this collection. Here are some of the features you should look out for when playing games with an Egyptian theme.

Familiar Egyptian icons

Look out for Anubis, pyramids, Sphinx, mummies, pharaohs, and much else besides. You tend to see the same images cropping up time and again in Egyptian-themed slot games. This makes the graphics even more important, since some games present rather basic icons compared with others. 3D games are our favorite, so it might be worth looking for these when you play.

Meet Cleopatra!

Yes, of all the characters you might encounter when playing these games, Cleopatra is the one that pops up the most. There are at least six different slots from that many providers that use this title, while others mention Cleo in their titles, too. Watch out for Cleo: Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra Queen of Slots, and Cleopatra Plus to name just a few.

Treasures galore

The ancient Egyptians were known for their tombs and treasures, and you will often find both when playing Egyptian-themed games. Blueprint Gaming released Cleopatra's Riches, while GameArt created Gold of Ra (Ra is another element that pops up a lot).

Treasures are also closely associated with the pharaohs, of course. IGT released Pharaoh's Fortune, Novomatic came up with insights into the Pharaoh's Tomb, and there are plenty more titles out there, too.

Explore the pyramids

We couldn't write about Egypt without mentioning the pyramids, could we? And there are lots of games based around those, too. NetEnt created Pyramid Quest for Immortality, while Cayetano Gaming came up with Pyramid Gold.

Whatever you want to see in an Egyptian slot game, you can be virtually certain there are games out there that will give you what you want. Many of them have bonus features and additional elements, too, so watch out for those and see which games are good enough to add to your list of favorite games to play. When you visit ancient Egypt, there is a lot to check out and enjoy while you're there.
