The city of Luxor is located slap bang in the middle of Egypt, about halfway down the course of the River Nile. In truth, you may not have heard of the city before (we certainly hadn’t) but you might be familiar with the ancient name of the town – Thebes. This was once one of the wealthiest places in the ancient Egyptian civilisation and, thus, one of the richest places in the entire ancient world. This is no more evident in the richness of cultural artefacts and architecture that can still be found at the site in the modern day.
This Genesis Gaming slot machine does a pretty spectacular job when it comes to displaying the sense of ancient wonder that the Luxor Temple offers. The game’s reels are set in a stunning setting with crumbling pillars engraved with hieroglyphs while the reel symbols that depict some of the most iconic deities from the ancient Egyptian belief system. There is the crocodile-headed god of the Nile AKA Sobek, the falcon-headed god of the sky AKA Horus, the dog-headed god of the afterlife AKA Anubis and the ibis-headed god of knowledge AKA Thoth.
Spin like an Egyptian
Temple of Luxor isn’t just interesting to look at, but it is also very interesting to play. That is because the game features two sets of 5×4 reels that are separated by a ruinous old obelisk engraved with hieroglyphic symbols. There are 50 paylines upon each set of reels, meaning that this low volatility slot has a whole lot of wins to offer. The downside to this, however, is that the biggest prize available is worth just 200x the value of the bet per line. The RTP of the game is 91.104%
The game’s smallest possible wager is 1.00 credit, which effectively factors in the fact that there are a total of 100 paylines in play at a price of 0.01 credit each. The biggest possible total wager is 10.00 credits per line. High rollers will be happy here, while casual punters will be rejoicing that they can play the game for a relatively cheap cost considering that there are 100 paylines in total.
Go Back in Time with This Bonus
Things get even more fascinating when it comes to the bonus gameplay of this online video slot. Spinners will notice that the game features a red ankh bonus icon. Well, if you were to find two of these scatters on both sets of reels at the same time, then you will be transported back in time to experience to real riches of this ancient setting.
Once the bonus feature is triggered, players will notice the surrounding pillars in a new light as they glow in their golden glory. Meanwhile the central obelisk will transform to reveal its original form as an extended wild which connects the two reels. A round of free spins will then be played over all 11 reels with 50 paylines that pay in both directions and an improved line bet jackpot of 5,000x for eleven matching Thoth symbols in a row.
Unless you have never played a slot machine or visited an online casino in your life, then you are probably aware that the theme of ancient Egypt is a popular one in the gambling world. Some of the more popular Egyptian slot machine titles out there include Cleopatra by IGT, Pyramid: Quest for immortality by NetEnt and Book of Ra by Novomatic. Indeed, this game isn’t really offering anything new or exciting as far as theme goes but it certainly shakes things up when it comes to the gameplay.
