We can count the number of themes we never get tired of with both our hands. Fortunately for NetEnt, ancient Egypt is one of those categories. We can certainly understand people feeling fatigued, but we still recommend at least checking this slot out. NetEnt brings out their talent for superb graphics to a whole new level, creating a visual feast like no other! Gorgeous, imposing and fun as all hell – that’s this game.
It’s accompanied by a traditional, Egyptian soundtrack. It loops frequently, but if you’re focused on spinning the reels, you will rarely notice it. Coins of Egypt’s RTP is 96.97%, almost a whole percentage point higher than the current average! There are also several special features to keep track of. One are the Pharaoh coins, and the other are the ever-familiar free spins with a few additions. The jackpot for this slot is only 274.5x your total bet.
NetEnt is known to be in a league of its own when it comes to graphics, but we were still blown away. The reels are above you, with two giant statues on either side staring you down. Add the animated background to the mix, and you have some of the best visuals the developer ever created. Despite the interesting special features, we cannot say gameplay was as impressive. Collectables are fun when they lead to a satisfying prize – and that’s something this NetEnt release lacks.
Coins of Egypt has a low variance, and some interesting bonuses to keep you busy! Both special features tend to appear quite frequently, but the prizes they can reward aren’t amazing. The general idea behind this NetEnt release is to go on a lucky streak and chain multiple wins together. We may be biased since we prefer medium variance, but that kind of system doesn’t seem particularly appealing.
The coin range for this game sits between ₹1.00 up to ₹100.00 per spin. By adjusting their coin value and bet level, players can change their total bet as well. You can play Coins of Egypt for as little as ₹20, or you can wager the maximum ₹2000 for each spin. This is a fantastic betting spread, one that will please both casual gamblers and high rollers alike!
We have to admit, this NetEnt release almost snuck its playing card symbols by us! They’ve been cleverly disguised as scarabs, so much so that you probably won’t notice the spades or clubs. Other icons include scorpions and ancient Egyptian deities: Wadjet, Bastet, Isis and Anubis. A golden Scarab is the Wild, while an elaborate device with golden rings is the Scatter. The maximum amount you can win in this slot is 274.5x your total stake.

Pharaoh Coins: During normal gameplay, up to three coins can appear on the first, second and third reel. Their values will range between 2x to 15x your total bet. During normal gameplay, all your coins are collected and stashed away in a secure location. Their prize is only awarded when a pharaoh Collect symbol appears on the fifth reel.
Free Spins: Three Scatters appearing on the first, third and fifth reel activate this special feature. The total value of all collected coins up until extra turns were triggered are split into three chests. Any coins that do appear during free spins are immediately added to their respective chests.
Each chest has a different seal that can unlock it. Chest seals only appear on the fifth reel, and only one can be collected at a time. There are no fixed amount of free spins – instead, the round continues until one of the three chests are unlocked. Unlocking a chest awards the prize hidden within, and ends the bonus.
This has to be one of the best looking NetEnt releases we had the pleasure of playing. The developers went above and beyond to make Coins of Egypt look gorgeous. The animations, the background, and the symbols all fit together perfectly.
We did not expect such complicated special features in a low variance game. They were interesting to fool around with, but failed to produce any interesting results. Unfortunately, with such small rewards, we really cannot recommend playing this slot with real money.
