Free Golden Egypt Slot Machine Game
IGT has designed and launched Golden Egypt slot machine in October 2017. It’s always exciting to come across a new Egyptian-themed slot game online. Why? Well, because there are so many of them, and yet the developers manage to keep the theme fresh and revive it each time with new gameplay elements and lovely visuals.
Some of the Egypt-themed slot games out there do turn out to be a little dull and too familiar, but Golden Egypt has managed to stay on the level. We wouldn’t be surprised if punters with a sweet tooth for historic machines fell over backwards for it.
IGT’s Golden Egypt is, indeed, a trip through history. It’s a revisiting of the Egyptian golden age of the pharaohs. The reels are set on the River Nile with the pyramids in the background. As the sun casts its rays everything looks made out of gold. To contrast that imagery, the reels are purple and they show symbols such as the powerful Pharaoh, Cleopatra, Anubis in its canine form, the Sphinx, an imperial barge and an assortment of lower value icons represented by gems and jewels.
The designers have incorporated the famous symbols of the Eye of Ra and the Ankh into the jewellery. Special symbols include the Sphinx, the Pharaoh and a Bonus symbol represented by one of the high and mighty pyramids from the Valley of the Kings under a flattering sunset.
Here we have a video slot with 5 reels, 4 rows and 25 paying lines. The control panel isn’t too crammed with buttons. There’s only the Spin button as the paylines are fixed, and you can take a look at the paytable before you get started or at any time in between spins. By using the arrows, you adjust the size of your bet per spin.

Golden Egypt offers a wide range of betting possibilities and therefore suits both high rollers and more cautious gamblers. The RTP ranges from 92.20% to 96.19%. Watch out for the Pharaoh symbol that covers two positions on the reels and pays out 12x your stake if you hit 5 on a win line. In case you find the game somehow familiar, that’s because it’s been around at land-based casinos for years.
The base game is rather interesting. Aside from forming winning combos in a usual fashion (left to right) the game will also allow you to benefit from stacked symbols. Any random symbol can appear in stacks, with the exception of special icons.
Now, the game is loaded with fine, creative features designed to up your winning potential. First, we have the Wild Stays 2 Plays feature. You’ll see slots with golden coins above the reels. Once you collect two golden coins above a reel, the reel will turn completely Wild for the next two spins. As favourable as it may be, this cute feature is slightly overshadowed by the Free Spins round or the Player Decision Free Spins Bonus.
Three or more pyramid Bonus symbols activate the round and the player gets three choices, depending on the number of triggering symbols. Potential free spins configurations include 5 free spins with 3 Wild reels, 15 free spins with 2 Wild reels, 30 free spins with 1 random Wild reel, 30 free spins with 2 Wild reels or 60 free spins with 1 random Wild reel and several other potential combinations. Bottom line - lots of wins guaranteed!
With the jump over to online and mobile platforms, Golden Egypt now reaches more gamblers on a worldwide scale. It’s a sandy slot packed with treasures, that’s for sure, and a decent choice for people who appreciate the theme and good bonuses.
