Lady Luxor Slots

Lady-LuxorLady Luxor is an Egyptian themed slot machine from Microgaming, a classic title that manages to look far more advanced than it should be, using bonus features, nudges and all sorts of other options to make the game fun. The graphics are also very good, a definite improvement over most of the other 3 reel slot machines that are available these days. The fact that there aren’t as many Egyptian classic slots out there as there are modern variants also helps with the appeal of the game.

If the design didn’t impress you, then the amount of features available in this 3 reels/1 line game will do that. There are nudges, multiple bonus games and prizes, most of them won through a boardgame like feature. Prizes only go up to $5,000 in the base game.

Features of Lady Luxor

The game’s nudges, gambles and restart chances are part of the slot and visible at all times, but then there is the bonus game as well, and that’s the real attraction as far as I’m concerned.

The slot’s biggest feature is its bonus game, and it will start up whenever you have three symbols with Mummies in view at the same time. The feature takes you to a boardgame like environment, in an Egyptian setting with pyramids and camels behind the game area.


You roll the dice each round and you advance in the boardgame, with its 36 different types of prizes. You get prizes with each additional roll, but you also risk being caught by the mummy that’s chasing you. If you get caught, you get nothing, so you should consider collecting the prizes you’ve gathered at some point, and withdrawing from the bonus game. The more you stay in it, the more prizes you can get.

Among the squares that you can land on there are some that give you bonus games, nudges, spin wins, prize multipliers or mystery payouts. The bonus games are called Nile Nugget, Cleo’s Cash, Pyramid Scheme, Raid The Tomb, Desert Dash, One Hump or Two, Show Me The Mummy and Open Sesame.

Betting options and jackpots

Given that the slot only uses one coin for wagers, the only way to change the bet is to choose the denomination that you’re comfortable with. The range of that coin value is between $0.10 and $10.

The paytable is shown next to the reels, so you always have your goal in mind. It’s a 500x jackpot, which has a top value of $5,000.

Design and symbols

The game’s visuals are impressive, but they’re also incredibly busy. The main screen is very crowded, with the reels being in the middle and surrounded by the paytable, logos and also showing a background image with an Egyptian palace interior, where Cleopatra is taking a bubble bath. The game is clearly better looking than most classic slots, but I’m not a fan of the crowded graphics.

Symbols: Cleopatra (500x), Explorer (80x), Pyramid (40x), Horus Golden Broach (20x), Camel (10x), Orange (8x), Lemon (4x), Ankh Cross (2x) and Cherry (1x).

Is It Worth Playing?

The bonus feature, with its multiple types of prizes and bonus games, will make sure that you will have fun playing Lady Luxor. The theme is quite common, but the gameplay is anything but typical.

The Lady Luxor slot machine is offered through the Microgaming platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
