Ancient Egypt and its golden treasures await you in this incredible Megaways video slot. However, to reach the gem-encrusted hoard of a lifetime’s riches, you must partner up with the formidable god of the dead, Anubis. This thrilling game of Gods and pyramids comes courtesy of Inspired Games and is played on an expansive 6-reel 7-row grid. Luckily, because this is a Megaways slot, the pay lines are more plentiful than a Pharos’s promised indulgences in the afterlife. Indeed, there are 117,649 ways to win. To do so, all players must do is match the various symbols across these lines. Players can also benefit from a selection of bonuses, including free spins and cascading wins. One of the most exciting, however, is the chance of landing Mystery Symbols. These symbols have the power to transform into any symbol on the board, which can trigger some exciting combinations out of nowhere—wagers for this game range between 10p and £25. The maximum win in the temple of Anubis, according to Inspired Games, in an incredible £250,000. This is a highly volatile video slot and has the potential to reward players with unbelievable prizes.
Graphics and Theme
The Egyptian motif is nothing new in video slot circles; however, with the Megaways element, Inspired games seem to have given the genre a new lease of life. Anubis Wild Megaways takes place in what looks like the tomb of a Pharaoh. The flickering flaming torchlight and Hieroglyphic facades give you the sense of being in The Mummy, with Bredon Fraser. The symbols are suitably Egyptian, with scarab beetles and pyramids representing various picture symbols. The mystery symbols are especially satisfying in gameplay, as they are golden tablets which shatter when they land and reveal the letter underneath them. The music seems to have been sourced from an old-school horror movie, making this game feel much more the Mummy’s Curse than Scooby-Doo. When you spin the reels, you get a sitar scale riff which increases the feeling of rising excitement with each spin.
There are four different bonuses to look out for when playing this game. Each of which work well within the structure of the Megaways format.
The first and potentially most lucrative is the Free Spins feature. You can trigger free spins by landing three or more bonus scatter symbols on the reels in any position in the base game. Before the free spins round begins, players will see an extra “Bonus Top Up” screen appear. From this screen, players must choose to either gamble again (to win more free spins) or to stick with the ones they have won. If you collect, you are given 12 free spins. This original 12 can be added to. For each time a bonus symbol lands within the bonus free spins round, another two free spins will be added to your tally. The maximum you can win is 82 free spins.
If you gamble when presented with this option, you can win more free spins if successful. However, if you are not, you will forfeit these original 12 and instead be given a consoling mystery multiplier. As the multiplier can only go up to 4x, the preferred option is the free spins.
The next bonus is the Mystery Symbols bonus. This is the most straightforward bonus and one that happens fairly regularly within the feature. Mystery symbols represented by golden tablets with the ‘?’ inscribed on them represent the mystery symbols. When they land on the reels, they can substitute for any other symbol, meaning that when revealed they can help you achieve new combinations and wins.
An exciting bonus of this game which you might like to consider towards the end of a feature is the Spin Chance feature. If you are running out of credit to spin the reels but want one last go, you can engage this option. Starting the feature will begin a needle spinning around a wheel. If it lands in the green, you will be granted one more real spin of the reels. If it lands in the red, however, you will lose all the pennies left in your pot.
Lastly, there is the Cascading Reels feature. For every winning combination that you achieve, you will be rewarded with one of these. The feature replaces the winning symbols with another set of symbols, effectively giving you another free spin in those spaces. If you win again, the feature will repeat. This can continue until the player loses.
Game How to Play
To start playing this game, players must decide how many coins they would like to wager on each spin using the controls displayed on the screen. The controls are located on the left-hand side of the display. Clicking on the question mark symbol at the top right of the screen will give you access to paytables, rules and gameplay options. Once you are happy with the settings including upper- and lower-win limits, you can spin the reels by hitting the spin button or setting up automatic spins.
