About Wild Egypt
Set deep within the catacombs of an old ancient temple tomb in the desert, Wild Egypt from Cayetano Gaming plays out on five reels and five rows. It is certainly true that there are already a lot of slot games out there themed on Ancient Egypt, many of them very good. Mistress of Egypt Diamond Spins being one good example.
Wild Egypt does try to change things up from the norm, however. For instance, in this game winning icons meld together in order to create new wild symbols. Also, this slot isn’t played with the regular set of pay lines. Instead, wins occur whenever at least three matching icons line up in a horizontal row anywhere on the 5x5 grid. And because this is a cascading slot game, winning symbols are removed from the grid and replaced with new ones, hopefully to create new winning combinations. These cascades will continue until no new wins are made. Plus, each new win has an increased multiplier attached to it.
Featuring instant wilds, progressive win multipliers and a free spins bonus, Wild Egypt gives players the chance to win up to 50X the value of their total bet when scriptures fill vacant positions on the grid. This grid is flanked by two statues who are watching on. But these are here not just to spectate but also to randomly award free spins. During a round of five free spins, you will be awarded with up to seven random wilds whenever you hit a non-winning spin.
Of the icons that fill the 25 modules on the grid, you will find the eye of Horus, lotus flowers, scarab beetles, the sphinx, pyramids, falcons, jackals, and ankhs which are the most rewarding. Five of these symbols will multiply the total bet by 50X. The fun is amplified even further thanks to some truly stunning graphics, a really nice colour palette, very cool animations and an awesome soundtrack.

21.co.uk Review Of Wild Egypt
In all, Wild Egypt does a very good job of bringing some new ideas to a very crowded market place. The theme of Ancient Egypt is very common slots, so Cayetano Gaming really needed to be innovative when designing this game and we are very pleased to say that they have done an excellent job. The random free spins is a nice touch and the melding icons is a fun new addition to spinning the reels.
