New Tales of Egypt is a top online slot from a very well known and appreciated developer, Octopus Gaming. Making use of the Egyptian culture and symbols , New tales of Egypt is a little bit different in terms of structure and graphics. It really seems like it’s more of the religious kind, with symbols and colors that are not very bright and have a slightly ‘’ dustier’’ feel.
The spinning reels are ‘’ decorated’’ on the left and right by two heavy and golden monuments. The ‘’scene’’ is also decorated with colors fit for a king, or better said, a Queen.
In order to be able to enhance the game look and feel, the developers of the slot arranged for great visual elements, animations, and sound effects as part of the whole setup. Each win and/or successful combination or double-up is joined by an equally adept and enjoyable musical element.
New Tales of Egypt has an intuitive style of gameplay so that players can jump in with winning features right from the get-go. There are 5 reels to play on, and each of the symbols can appear every time the reels are spun, with no restrictions and no sticky reels.
What s a good feature is the great variance and generosity of the betting structures and ranges. What this essentially means is that you will not have to worry about what kind of player you are and whether you fit or not with the gameplay structure of New Tales of Egypt. Being able to bet up to 10x the lowest bet, from 20 to 200 coins/spin, you can be a complete beginner or a seasoned veteran in online pokies, it does not matter, as you will have great betting possibilities available to you.
The gamble feature is also a useful feature that helps players double and even increase the wins up to 4x. If you pick the correct color, you ll double up your amount, whereas picking the exact correct symbol will win you up to 4x time your initial bet.
Nine Lucky Symbols
You can split all of the symbols in New Tales of Egypt into 3 main groups, as it is the case with most online pokies. The lowest-paying symbols are the playing cards, ranging from 10, J, Q, K and up to the Ace, all of them having quite low payouts for the most basic combination of 3 of a kind.
Some higher-paying symbols include the usual elements you would find in an Egyptian, mythological-themed online slot. TIER 2, usually considered to be consisting of slightly higher paying symbols that the playing cards, is represented by Queen Cleopatra, the God RA, a golden cat and the Eye of Horus.
TIER 3 and the most important symbols are consisting of the glowing diamond, which is the WILD, and the mighty Pyramid, which is the Scatter and officially the most important symbol in the game.
