When it comes to slot themes, there are few more popular than Ancient Egypt, with software developers at least.
For many players, the concept is becoming tired, with countless slots taking on the topic, it’s difficult to bring anything new to the table anymore.
One of the most recent developers to ignore this fact and try anyway is Blueprint Gaming in the shape of Eye of Horus.
About the slot
With five reels and 10 paylines, Eye of Horus is playable from 10p to £100 a spin on all compatible desktop, mobile, and tablet devices.
While Blueprint are known for brining creative design touches to their slots and packing them with features, which could have made Eye of Horus stand out against similar slots, the developer decided to do neither here.
Instead you get a very basic look, with the reels including the traditional J, Q, K, and A filler symbols, as well as scarab beetles, Egyptian gods, and other predictable images, the Eye of Horus is the most valuable standard symbol, paying out 50x your stake for five on a payline.
Horus is the wild symbol here, and will expand to cover the reel it lands on.
There’s not a lot going on it terms of gameplay either, forgoing the usual approach of putting various features in a slot, Blueprint have gone for just one here.
Land three or more scatters for a payout of up to 50x your stake (for five on a payline) as well as 12 free spins.
Each time an expanding wild hits it will upgrade a low value symbol as well as adding more free spins, so there is the chance for some nice wins here.
Eye of Horus is nothing special, everything has been done before, we’ve come to expect more from Blueprint.
