Secret Of Horus Slots

Secret-Of-HorusSecrets of Horus is one of the many Egyptian themed slot machines, but it’s the only one that chose to focus on Horus, the god with the body of a man and the head of a falcon.

He was considered the god of the skies, of the sun and of kingship. Depending on the times when he was mentioned, he took on other roles as well, at times being the god of war.

The Egyptian king was considered the manifestation of the god Horus while he was alive, while in death he was of Osiris.

The game is interesting because it actually goes further than the usual Cleopatra theme that has become so boring and overdone these days.

This slot presents you with up to 20 paylines and with 5 reels, a standard setup these days. The game has a range of interesting features, with the free spins, wilds, scatters and multipliers all being used. There are up to $20,000 jackpots on the line.

Features of Secret Of Horus

Secrets of Horus has both major features that you would expect from a slot like this, the wild symbol and the scatter, their appearance bringing along either multipliers or free spins.

To start with, I’ll mention Horus himself, the wild symbol in this case. Its image is that of a bird’s head, but placed on a human body. It’s going to substitute for all the symbols, except for the scatters. All wins obtained with the help of a wild are worth double the usual amount, the x2 multiplier in play here being quite useful. The wild is going to also give away its own prizes, the jackpot being valued at 10,000x, more than generous, but requiring five symbols of this type on the same line.

You also get a scatter symbol, with the Scarab being the one to represent it on the reels. Multiple Scarabs scattered will get you prizes, the 2x to 500x multiple mentioned on the paytable being applied to the value of the triggering bet.

Free Games Feature

With three or more Scarabs, in any position, you will get 15 spins for free and x3 multipliers applied. All prizes obtained through the free spins winning combinations will be worth three times more than usual, and that’s without taking into account the wild’s multiplier. Get winning combos with a wild helping out, while the free spins are used, and you should be walking home with 6x the usual payout.

Betting options and jackpots

You can bet anywhere between $0.02 and $40 on a single spin of the slot’s reels. The use of 1 to 80 coins is possible, with individual lines getting 1 to 4 coins if they are activated. The most you can invest in a single coin is $0.50, while the lowest value is $0.02.

If you bet with the top jackpot in mind, you will use $40 per spin and in exchange you can hope to take home up to $20,000 (40,000 coins).

Design and symbols

The Egyptian theme works well for this game, but that’s mostly because it has symbols that I haven’t seen anywhere else. There are some that are common, like the Scarab or the paper scrolls, but there are multiple types of birds represented as well, from vultures to chickens. The Egyptian look is evident, the walls of a temple being used for the surrounding graphics and for the background of the reels.

Symbols: Horus (wild, 10,000x), Scarab (scatter, 500x triggering wager), Eye of Ra (750x), Gold Ring (500x), Anubis Jar (500x), Falcon (250x), Scroll (250x), Vulture (200x), Sphinx (150x), Hand (100x), Chick (125x), Axe Blade (125x) and Palm Leafs (125x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The Egyptian theme might have been overused, but this is the only Horus themed slot as far as I know, it has average wagering requirements, decent top payouts and a design that you will at least not hate. Give it a chance at least, it might surprise you.

The Secret Of Horus slot machine is offered through the Net Entertainment platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
