Login to Springbok Casino and play the best RTG online slots, including Egyptian Gold slot, a bonus-rich 243 payway game.

As online slots go, Egyptian Gold is a knockout!  Real Time Gaming (RTG) managed to inject a sense of the unique into what could be deemed a tired theme.  You’ll not only enjoy a theme-reimagined, but the brand-new Springbok Casino slot is designed for bonus hunters, and here is why.

An All-Encompassing Online Casino Game

It is not every day the developers of online slots release a game that ticks all the boxes.  In Egyptian Gold slot, you’ve they nailed it on all fronts.  Besides an expandable reel set and lavish paytable, there is a bounty of bonus features to super-charge play.

Ancient Egyptian online slots are a dime a dozen and it is a theme that has been explored ad nauseum.  That said, RTG has managed to create an authentic thematic with a modernistic twist.  When we say ‘reimagined’, we mean they brought the age-old theme into the 21st century, and they did so well!

The 3 x 5 reel set is rendered in the form of a purple hologram, which occasionally has its own ‘light show’.  Even the ancient characters – the pharaoh and his queen – are more 21st Century than 3,000 BC.  Throw in a combination of Egyptian iconography and the conventional playing card suits, and Egyptian Gold slot is where East and West collide!

Expanding Reel Set

The online slots showpiece in the all-new Springbok Casino game is the expandable reels.  The feature can be randomly activated when the wild appears on the central reel.  Rather than simply completing payout permutations, the wild increases the 3 x 5 layout to a 4 x 5 set on reels 2, 3 and 4.  The result of the minor adjustment is a payway boost from the standard 243 to 576.

What is the significance of the amplified payways?  It maximises the opportunity of forming matching combinations on the reels.  When you consider the generous scope of the online slots payouts, extended payways can be a major boon.

What can you win when you play Egyptian Gold slot at Springbok Casino?  Unsurprisingly, the top paying symbol is the pharaoh himself.  He generates prizes up to 1,000 x the payway wager.

In order to calculate the winnings in ZAR, you have to divide the bet by 30 and multiply the answer by the posted payout.  Do the sums and you can win up to R2,500 with the max R75 bet in-play.  Thereafter, the queen pays up to 400 x, followed by the cobra, ankh and scarab beetle at 300 x, 250 x and 200 x, respectively.

The bright green urn and spades playing card suit deliver 100 x for five of a kind.  Hearts, diamonds and clubs share a top payout of 40 x.  What that of course means is even the low paying icons generate wins of up to R100 when betting max.

Scarab Bonus Features

The key to racking up big wins in online slots is the bonus features.  The great news is Egyptian Gold slot has an abundance of features – one potentially more lucrative than the other.  During gameplay, what you have to look out for is the scarab beetle.  It occasionally flits across gameboard to anoint the reels with an online slots surprise.

Here is what the scarab beetle can randomly deliver in terms of bonus features:

  • wild symbol substitutes
  • wild reels
  • reel respins
  • jackpot picks
  • free games

Most of the features are self-explanatory, with the exception of the jackpot pick.  This feature is a conventional second screen pick me bonus game.  Your task is to select three identical symbols from 12 options.  If you are successful, you win one of the four progressive jackpots corresponding to that particular symbol!

Besides what could be a sensationally rewarding scarab, the bonus scatter is a free games activator.  Achieve three scatters on the gaming interface and you are paid 1 x the stake.  You are also given the opportunity to select one of three free games options:

  1. 5 free games with an expanding reel set
  2. 8 free games with wild reels
  3. 10 free games with an expanding reel set and 2 x win multiplier

This is precisely the same free games feature that can randomly be awarded by the scarab beetle at any point in the game.

Significance of the Scarab Beetle in Ancient Egypt

Any online slots symbol more powerful than the wild and scatter has to be extraordinary.  In Egyptian Gold slot, that symbol is the scarab beetle… a bug better known as the dung beetle.  The question is why a beetle, which literally rolls animal excrement into balls, is so revered.

The Ancient Egyptians elevated the humble scarab to superhero because of what it represented.  According to the Egyptologists, the ball of dung symbolised the world.  More importantly, it was the scarab that ensured the world kept rotating on its own axis around the sun.

As the scarab was essentially responsible for the celestial embodiment of the cycle of life, it was associated with substantial regenerative powers.  Pharaohs, priests and VIPs were buried with scarabs.  Today, artistic representations of ancient scarabs are highly collectible relics.

Although the online slots scarab in Egyptian Gold is neither collectible nor a relic, it can deliver the keys to the money vault.  When you see the scarab flitting across the gaming interface, you can virtually bank on a bonus-generated pay day.
