An Original Slot
If you’re a regular slot player, it’s easy for the games to begin to blend into each other somewhat with similar formats and prizes on offer. But that’s not the case with Scarab Treasure because it’s a game that has been designed to be unlike any of the usual 5×3 games.
Games with a single payline tend to be rather basic, or styled as a classic slot without any of the more contemporary features that make play so exciting. However, although Scarab Treasure has only a single payline it also only has a single reel and a single slot. Confused? Read on to discover more about how to play…
In this slot, you can win prizes by spinning one of three main symbols and when these appear on the reel, you’ll win a prize? If this sounds too simple to be true, you’re right; there’s much more to the game than this.
Three of the most iconic Egyptian symbols, the Eye of Horus, the Ankh Cross and the scarab beetle offer prizes when they land on the reel. Each of them holds a different value and the more of each type of symbol you land in succession the higher the prize will climb to. As soon as you accumulate a prize of any amount, you can choose to accept it and reset the game. However, the longer you allow the sequence to run, the higher the prize you could win. The skill in Scarab Treasure comes from deciding when to take the prize and when to risk rolling again.
Of course, there’s a bad guy which is out to ruin all your fun and in this case it’s the blue scorpion. Whatever prize you’ve accumulated will be instantly wiped out when he appears on the reels. You need to hope that you’ve chosen to take your winnings before he strikes – this is a game which truly has a sting in its tail!
Dare to Play
As described above, if you can hold out for longer runs of the same symbol you’ll be in with a chance of grabbing a top notch prize.
Every time you roll another matching symbol the prize will increase further. Once you roll six matching symbols in a row, you’ll win the top available prize. The Ankh Cross pays out 500 after six matches, the Eye of Horus pays out 3,500 while the holy Scarab Beetle will give you a win of 75,000. These prizes are based on a max bet of 100; the amount you could win will depend on how much you’re betting with. You can opt to collect your money at any time by clicking on the “Take” button.
Just like other Amatic titles, there’s the option to gamble as well and despite the more exotic and unusual design on this slot, it’s the same familiar Gamble feature that regular players will recognise. To gamble you’ll play a card game where you need to predict either the colour or the suit of the next one about to be revealed. If you win, you’ll either double or quadruple your prize and you’ll have the choice of gambling again or collecting your money and returning to the main game. If you lose, you’ll forfeit your prize and return to the main play.
Scarab Treasure by Amatic is not just another Egyptian-themed game in the slots market and adds a real variety, offering unique play. With extremely high volatility there’s lots of risk involved but the real attraction is that the player feels as if the ability to win lies in their own hands, unlike many other titles. Deceptively simple, Scarab Treasure is a title which stands out from the crowd, and is an interesting play both for newbies and those who want to try something completely different for a change.
