EGT Interactive launched a brilliant new slot game called Mythical Treasure in September 2020. It’s a fantasy-themed game with hand-drawn graphics which gives it an old-school, slightly 8-bit look and feel. EGT has a large portfolio of online casino games. Some of their other famous slot game titles include Pin-up Queens, Emperor’s Palace, Flaming Hot, and Vampire Knight. While EGT might not be the most well-known software provider, the long list of games they have produced paired with the unique graphics makes them one to watch out for.
Mythical Treasure is played across a classic 5×3 set up with 25 pay lines. You can start betting from just 25 coins per spin, up to a maximum of 500 coins per spin. You won’t get bored in this game as you have free spins, toppling reels and a double-up gamble feature to keep you entertained. The maximum win in the game is 1000x your stake, plus there are four progressive jackpot prizes to be won in every game. You’ll see how much you could win with the jackpot counters that sit above the reels. Read the rest of the review to find out more about this fantastic online video slot game.
Graphics and Theme
Mythical Treasure is a fantasy-themed slot that features fabulous creatures like lions, eagles, unicorns and phoenixes. The hand-drawn graphics make for a slightly grainy texture that made me think of a mash-up of Tekken and Lord of the Rings. It’s a great combination, and anyone who loves all things fantasy will enjoy the look of it. The backdrop to the reels is a fiery woodland setting. The reels take over most of the screen and have a paper coloured background.
The soundtrack is, well… non-existent. So, if you need music to keep you motivated while you hit spin, you will need to bring your own. The reels spin silently but come to a stop one by one with a clicking noise the mimics the pattern of a horse galloping. When you land a winning combination, a celebration noise made on a synthesizer will explode from your speakers, bringing your attention back to the screen.
Mythical Treasure Symbols
The low paying symbols are made up of the playing card symbols jack, queen, king and ace. Five of a kind aces are worth 2000 coins when you’re betting the maximum or 4x your stake. The high paying symbols include an eagle, a unicorn, a lion, a lady with red hair, and an armoured man. The man is the most valuable symbol and is worth a maximum of 20,000 coins or 40x your stake for five of a kind. There is also a scatter symbol that is worth 2500 coins for three of a kind and a wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter.
To trigger the free spins, you need to land three scatter symbols anywhere on the first, second and third reels simultaneously. You can retrigger an additional seven free spins if you land more scatters during the bonus round. You’ll be taken to a new screen for the duration of the free spins round.
Please note that you can be mysteriously (randomly) awarded seven free spins at any point during the game. This feature is only active during the base game.
You have the opportunity to double your winnings after you land a winning combination by hitting the gamble button in the bottom right corner of your screen. You will need to decide on whether the card shown face down will be revealed as red or black. If you get it right, your winnings will be doubled; if you get it wrong, your winnings will be taken away.
There are four jackpot prizes to be won, each of which is assigned to a playing card suit. The Jackpot Cards bonus round can be randomly triggered at the end of any spin during the base game. You’ll be taken to a new screen where you are presented with 12 face-down cards. Your job is to select the cards until you have three cards with the same suit facing up. You’ll be awarded the corresponding jackpot amount which you can see at the top of your screen.
Game How to Play
The first thing you need to do is place your bets. In this game, bets start from as little as 25 coins per spin and reach a maximum of 500 coins per spin. However, you are restricted to betting 25, 50, 125, 250, or 500 coins at a time if you want to bet across all pay lines. The game is played across a 5×3 set of reels with 25 pay lines and lots of exciting features. A winning combination is created when you land three or more symbols on a winning pay line. The toppling reels feature will remove symbols from winning combos and replace them with new ones, giving you even more chances to win. The maximum payout in the game is 1000x your stake, and you have the chance to randomly win one of four progressive jackpot prizes.
