Back in time again to Ancient Egypt we go with Nolimit City’s newest game, Tomb of Akhenaten Slot.
Akhenaten was an Egyptian Pharaoh who ruled during the Eigteenth Dynasty of the New Kingdom, and he’s renowned for challenging traditional beliefs, turning his back on the many gods conventionally revered by many in favour of a single god called Aten.
New reforms and a notable reign makes Akhenaten a perfect a candidate as any for a slot resurrection…it seems neither the Pharoah or his riches are forgotten.
Tomb of Akhenaten Slot certainly isn’t the first game themed upon Ancient Egypt, and it certainly won’t be the last, but how does it compare to the rest?
The Eighteenth Dynasty with Tomb of Akhenaten Slot
Tomb of Akhenaten Slot doesn’t exactly offer sensory overload in terms of visuals or audio, but it conveys the theme of Ancient Egypt well enough.
Either side of the reels you’ll see ancient and cracked pillars, with the odd Scorpion making its way around them. The scene will change when you get the bonus, at which point you’ll make your way into the tomb which is adorned with treasure ripe for the taking.
Betting and Symbols
Betting options on Tomb of Akhenaten Slot cover a wide array of different selections, with the lowest bet starting from £0.10. The highest option is £100, and there’s plenty in between the two for players that prefer an option somewhere in the middle.
Various Ancient Gods make up the top paying symbols, and it’s the usual crew you see with this type of game. Ra is the top paying symbol, followed by Sobek Thoth and Bastet.
Low paying symbols are represented more traditionally with A, K, Q, J & 10. There’s also a Wild symbol which will substitute for all regular paying symbols.
Tomb of Akhenaten Slot Base Game and Features
Tomb of Akhenaten Slot is a 5 reel slot with a default starting configuration of 243 ways to win, with the potential to increase up to 3125 ways.
Wins are paid from left to right, starting from the left-most reel, and 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels are needed to form a win.
There are a couple of different features within the game that spices things up a bit in terms of playability and potential, the first of which is Sticky Win Spins
Sticky Win Spins
Any win will trigger the Sticky Win Spins. This will trigger more possible ways to win. The first respin will increase the ways to win up to 1,024, with the second row giving you 3,125.
Sticky Win Spins will award up to 3 respins, and to progress to the next level you’ll need to land a symbol that was part of the original win, or part of a new one via other symbols.
If the win is improved on the first 2 levels, then one of the new positions on the top row will be transformed into a Wild symbol, and the last level will give a chance to land Pyramid Wilds.
Pyramid Wilds may land on a winning position on the last level of a Sticky Win Spin. The Pyramid Wheel on top of the reel will grant a Pyramid Spin if it turns red, and when a pyramid Wild lands it will transform all symbols above it to Pyramid Wilds.
If there’s a Regular Wild above the pyramid Wild, then it will count as a double Wild, counting as 2 symbols.
Akhenaten Free Spins will trigger if 3 or more bonus scatters land anywhere in view on the reel. 8 spins are awarded for 3 scatters, and any additional scatters will award an extra 2 spins.
In this feature, each sticky win will increase the multiplier by +1, and it will not reset between spins.
Extra spins may also be awarded. Any Akhenaten bonus symbols will award an extra Akhenaten Spin.
The multiplier together with the Sticky Win Spins and Pyramid Wild is where you’ll see what the game is truly capable in terms of potential.
Tomb of Akhenaten Slot is another addition to Nolimit City’s more than decent collection of games, bringing some big potential and some great replayability.
The Sticky Win Spins will give you bang for your buck as it’s activated with any winning spin, and it’ll potentially grow into something bigger and more formidable if it reaches a point in which it can give you Pyramid Wilds.
It’s doubtful that this game will stand out from any other Egyptian game…there are so many to contend with after all. But despite not being a gamechanger, Akhenaten offers that classic Nolimit City stamp of quality, and is a fun and exciting game…when it wants to be.
Tomb of Akhenaten Slot will be available to play on most Online Casinos on the 15th of December 2020.
