Rise of Khepri Slot Demo Gameplay
Rise of Khepri Slot Review 2023
Rise of Khepri from Light & Wonder looks stock at first glance, but is all as it seems in this seemingly standard Egyptian tale? Or is is more than meets the eye?
From the legends behind the Mighty Ways series, Light & Wonder are expanding their slots portfolio with something all too familiar. Rise of Khepri takes us back to the Egyptian era, where Scarab Scatters, increasing Multipliers and whole lot of potential awaits!
Rise of Khepri Base Game and Features
Rise of Khepri is a 5 reel slot with 243 ways to win. Forming winning combinations requires 3 or more of the same symbols to land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€50 per spin, with plenty of other option inbetween the two. Rise of Khepri has a theoretical RTP of 96.12% and a max win cap of 5,000x.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol here is the Pyramid, followed by the Eye of Horus, Ankh, Vase and Scroll. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten.
Wilds appear only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, substituting for all other symbols except Scarab and Mega Scarab symbols.
The base game has little in the way of features, but Light & Wonder has made sure the Free Spins and Super Free Spins rounds make up for this. More on these below!
Rise of Khepri Free Spins
Triggering the Free Spins round requires 3 Scarab Scatters to land across the reel set. Also in play is Mega Scarab Scatters, which can award the Super Free Spins round. Landing a combination of Scarab and Mega Scarab scatters will award the following.
- 1 Mega Scarab Scatter – Awards a Cash Prize.
- 2 Mega Scarab Scatters – Awards a Cash Prize and a Multiplier.
- 3 Mega Scarab Scatters – Awards a Cash Prize, multiplied twice and also triggers the Super Free Spins round.
Once the regular Free Spins round is triggered, you will be given a choice of 4 Free Spins options.
- 12 Free Spins with a starting Scarab value of x1.
- 9 Free Spins with a starting Scarab value of x2.
- 6 Free Spins with a starting Scarab value of x5.
- Mystery Option – A combination of the above Scarab values and Free Spins.
During both the Free Spins and Super Free Spins rounds, the maximum Multiplier that can be reached is x200. Once this Multiplier value is reached, it will no longer increase.
During the Free Spins round, all Scarab symbols will pay a Cash Prize in line with the current Scarab Multiplier that sits on the left side of the reel set.
The Scarab Multiplier will then increase by the Scarab Multiplier increment times the number of Scarab symbols on the reels.
Super Free Spins
Triggering the Super Free Spins round, awards 12 Free Spins and the Scarab Multiplier increment is set at x5.
Each time a win occurs, they are awarded a x3 Multiplier. In addition to this, each time a Scarab symbol with a Cash Prize appears, the total Multiplier is increased by x5 for every Scarab symbol present.
Rise of Khepri Bonus Buy
Those outside the UK will benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
Light & Wonder has granted players access to both the Free Spins and Super Free Spins games through their Buy Pass option, for a total cost of 50x and 300x your current bet respectively.
Rise of Khepri: Our Verdict
You may be thinking right about now ‘not another Egyptian slot’, but given what this game is capable of, the theme can easily be forgiven.
Although the Egyptian theme is probably the most common in slots, there is something pretty special about them and Providers like Light & Wonder seem to work wonders with it.
The base game may not be the most exhilarating we’ve seen, but seeing what both the Free Spins and Super Free Spins round can do, its a slot worth grinding in our opinion.
Light & Wonder has catered for both those in and out of the UK. The Buy Pass lets players get stuck into both Free Spins rounds, without needing to break the bank. Those in the UK won’t benefit from this option, but Light & Wonder has made sure that you don’t miss out on the action, by giving you the chance to land the Super Free Spins round naturally in the base game.
All in all, Light & Wonder has restored our faith in the Egyptian theme through the use of Increasing Multipliers and both the Free Spins and Super Free Spins rounds. Rise of Khepri is a pleasure to play and one to add to your favourites.
