Tales of Egypt Slots

Tales-of-EgyptThe offer you’re made in Tales of Egypt is that of a game with a very typical and often encountered theme which is inspired by Ancient Egypt. The action will of course take place inside a pyramid, while the symbols offer various representations of Egyptian gods. You even have an archeologist among its symbols, a common choice which games probably include because Indiana Jones made it cool to do so. There are way too many slots with this theme already, many with superior graphics and features than the ones you can find here.

Just like its design, the game is average when it comes to its layout, 20 lines being used on 5 reels. You will get a bonus feature with free spins and multipliers though, along with scatters and wild symbols. Prizes of up to $20,000 are mentioned by the game’s paytable.

Features of Tales of Egypt

Wilds and scatters are both part of the Tales of Egypt list of features. There are also bonus games which bring you free spins and even some multipliers.


The Archeologist symbol is used as a top jackpot trigger and as a wild feature. As the top jackpot symbol, if it appears on up to five positions of a payline it rewards the player with up to 1,000 coins. As a wild, even a single symbol can be of use to you, since it will act as a substitute and hopefully bring you wins that wouldn’t have been possible without its help. Wilds of this type can’t replace scatter symbols, but all other symbols are fair game.

Next, we have the Pyramid symbol, which is a very special one, acting as both a scatter and a wild. It pays like a scatter though, and it offers its features the same way. With three to five such symbols present during a spin, your reward will vary between 2x and 200x the spin’s bet. At the same time, it is used as a wild which can replace any other icon, even the other wild which triggers the top jackpot.

Raiding the Pyramid

The slot’s bonus game brings you free spins, up to 10 of them, along with multipliers. To get inside, you have to first get a minimum of three Pyramid scatters on the reels, and in the same round.

Each free spin gets a random symbol which is chosen from the existing ones, and it will get additional powers, being used as a second scatter. It will be easier for it to offer its prizes.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting system is a favorite for Top Game, using $100 as the maximum wager for 20 lines. Each line can get up to $5, with the minimum at $0.01.

The rewards are best when they come from the scattered Pyramid. This symbol pays 200x the bet, or up to 4,000 coins, with a value of $20,000. The wild offers up to $5,000.

Design and symbols

The thing I enjoyed least about this game is the design. Though not exactly bad, it’s quite dated and with so many modern versions being available, it’s difficult to go with this one over the others. You have the pillars and walls of the pyramid on both sides of the reels, filled with hieroglyphs, while the symbols are either playing cards or representations of the ancient gods.


Symbols: Archeologist (wild, 1,000 coins), Pyramid (scatter/wild, 200x bet), Bast (500 coins), Horus (350 coins), Scarab (250 coins), Anubis (200 coins), Ace (120 coins), King (120 coins), Queen (100 coins), Jack (100 coins) and 10 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

I didn’t find this to be an exciting enough game, and it’s especially true when you compare it with its direct competitors, the other Egyptian themed slot machines.

The Tales of Egypt slot machine is offered through the Topgame platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
