Coins of Egypt Slot Review
The mighty river Nile still hides so many secrets when it comes to ancient deities and pharaohs and only the myths tell the stories about long-lost riches. A new temple is discovered and the time is now to explore the ancient tombs below the surface. Coins of Egypt is NetEnt’s latest video slot that features five reels, three rows and offers 20 fixed paylines. Playable from £0.20 per spin, the 2018 release introduces Pharaoh Coins Win feature, where gamers get to collect coins up to 15 times the stake, and the Free Spins feature with chests packed with treasures.
Set on the very entrance of the temple that is guarded by Horus and Anubis, Coins of Egypt is the home of four important gods from Egyptian culture – Anubis, Wadjet, Bastet and Isis, which are the high-paying symbols of the 2018 release. Watch out for the Scorpions that dwell in the ruins of the temple. Also, there are five different Scarabs that carry precious gemstones on their backs and serve as low-value icons. The Golden Beetle is the Wild that substitutes for all regular symbols, while Golden Scatter triggers the Free Spins feature. The Pharaoh Mask is the Collect symbol that lands only on reel 5.
It is a well-known fact that all Egyptian temples are packed with traps that prevent outsiders to come in and steal the riches. Fortunately for all spinners, that is not the case with the NetEnt title, so you will have no problem at all understanding the rules of the game, which are quite simple. The 2018 release features five reels, three rows and offers 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, beginning from the far left reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payots. Set the bet level (1-10) and the coin denomination (£0.01 – £1) and you are ready to go.
During base game, 1-3 coins will appear next to randomly chosen symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 and they will offer 2-15 times the bet. Once coin per reel can appear. If a Pharaoh Mask appears on reel 5 as well, you will collect all the wins offered by the coins. This is the Pharaoh Coins Win feature.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when three Scatters are landed on reels 1, 3 and 5. All coins from that spin are collected and added to three chests – Ruby Eagle, Emerald Snake and Golden Cat. Gamers get free spins which last until one of the three chests are opened. To open the chests, you need to collect three matching Chest Seals, which only land on reel 5. Wins add more value to the chests during the feature and once one of them are unlocked, the feature is over and gamers get to collect their winnings.
The Golden Beetle Wild pays the most, offering 3,000 coins for five of a kind. Fill all the cells with Wilds and you will walk away with 60,000 coins in your pockets, but that’s easier said than done. The Free Spins feature will offer plenty of chances for massive wins, especially if you unlock the chest that hides the most treasure. Coins of Egypt’s RTP is 96.97%.

+ Stunning visuals
+ Excellent quality of the game
+ Rewarding features
– No multipliers
– Common theme
– Takes time to trigger features
We said earlier that there are no hidden traps in this ancient temple, but we may be wrong, because the gods may suck your balance dry if you don’t pay attention. Apart from that, Coins of Egypt is a smashing game, boasting excellent graphics and a fitting soundtrack, while offering two addictive and rewarding special features. The 2018 release is simply a great video slot and we expected nothing less from the good people of NetEnt. However, the theme is a bit common, but we firmly believe that the NetEnt product will find its path to the hearts of all fans of ancient Egypt.
