Scarab Kingdom Our Verdict

Scarab Kingdom may not be a Just For The Win blockbuster title, but it’s a pretty dependable title. A  5,000x win capability makes it alluring enough to those searching for a big hit, and an RTP value of 96.13% is well within the satisfactory range. 

Scarab Kingdom Is not overly complicated, and in hindsight, it’s not overly innovative given the time-worn Egyptian Theme, but it speaks to the heart of the kind of player who loves something a little classical, and it’s even got a couple of surprises mixed in there too. 

Some might consider Scarab Kingdom a bit of a grind game, given the Cleo’s bonus feature, but with the concept of Free Spins thrown in the mix too, it’s not a bad thing to have something extra to work towards.

Overall, Scarab Kingdom may not look like much at first glance, but it can throw in some surprising
