Mysterious Egypt Overview
Mysterious Egypt was released on the 7th January 2021 by Pragmatic Play. Pragmatic Play has been producing online slot games since 2015. Despite being one of the younger software companies, they have successfully made a name for themselves in just over five years. It’s due to their popular games like Star Bounty, Chilli Heat, Ultra Hold & Spin and Starz Megaways. Their latest release, Mysterious Egypt doesn’t disappoint. It provides a fresh take on what you could say is a saturated market of Egyptian themed slots.
The game is played across a 5×3 set of reels with just ten pay lines. You can place your bets from $0.10 or go big and place a maximum bet of $100 per spin. You have the chance to win the maximum payout of 5500x your stake and access exciting game features like free spins, wild symbols and more.
Graphics and Theme
The graphics as you would expect are themed around ancient Egypt. To either side of the reels, you will catch a glimpse of the great pyramids and the river Nile. It’s a bright sunny day, and the blueness of the water shines bright, which creates a picturesque backdrop to keep you relaxed and calm while you hit spin. The reels have a decorative border made of gold and colourful gemstones. The backdrop to the reels is maroon and features detailed hieroglyphs which add a sense of authenticity to this game. Finally, the game logo sits on top of the reels with a mystery symbol box.
The soundtrack is extremely relaxing and soothing. It’s a traditional Egyptian song featuring instruments like the sistrum, rattle, lyres and the shepherd’s pipe. Together they create a repetitive tune that creates a chilled atmosphere. The music intensifies when you hit spin. The game plays loud drums and synth noises to gee you up ready for when the big combinations land. The reels make a flickering noise when you hit spin and come to a stop one by one with a clicking noise.

Mysterious Egypt symbols
The low paying symbols in the game are made up of the playing card symbols 10, jack, queen, king, and an ace. Aces are worth a maximum of $1500 for five of a kind or 15x your stake. The high paying symbols include a falcon, a cat, a pyramid and the Eye of Horus. The Eye of Horus is the most valuable symbol in the game and is worth up to $50,000 for five of a kind or 500x your stake.
There is also a goodness symbol that acts as the scatter and wild symbol. It will pay out 200x your stake for five of a kind.
A randomly selected symbol will be chosen to be the mystery symbol before each spin. You can see which symbol has been selected by looking at the mystery symbol box located next to the top of your screen’s game logo. The mystery symbol may expand to cover all three-reel positions if it’s your lucky day.
To trigger the free spins, you will need to land three or more scatter wild symbols anywhere on the screen. You will be awarded with ten free spins, and you can retrigger ten additional free spins every time you land three scatters.
Like the mystery symbol feature, any of the special symbols present on the board can expand to cover all reel positions after the regular symbols pay out during the free spins round. This gives you a chance to make a huge winning combo to add to your winnings for that round. This feature will only trigger if there are enough symbols to make a win guaranteed.
Mysterious Egypt How to Play
Before you hit spin, you will need to decide on your betting range. This can be between $0.20 per spin up to a maximum of $100 per spin for those wanting to maximise the game’s potential returns. You can then hit spin manually or use the auto spin feature to perform up to 1000 spins on your behalf. The game is played on a 5×3 set of reels, and you will need to land winning combinations of three or more matching symbols across one of the ten active pay lines. Land three scatter symbols anywhere on your screen to play the free spins round where you will have the chance to win the maximum payout of 5500x your stake.
