Wild Scarabs provides three rows, five reels and 243 ways to win. It’s a game that revolves around Ancient Egypt and it has all the respective elements. The backdrop is composed by pyramides, palms, a river and some sand constructions.
The lower paying symbols are six stones of different colours. The higher valued ones use hieroglyphic images of sacred attributes and Egyptian gods.
The Wild Symbol with a green and dark-blue scarab on it is a substitute for the rest of the symbols except Scatter. Another scarab with orange and light-blue tones serves as the Scatter Symbol. All its wins are multiplied by a total stake. Also, the Scatter Symbol pays in any position and is available in the main game only. Three Scatters on the reels cause ten Free Spins.
A special quality of this slot machine is the Wild Deal Feature. It works in the following manner: a non-winning combination with Wild on the middle reel activates up to four additional Wild Symbols to guarantee a win.
During Free Spins sessions all of the non-winning Wild Symbols are collected until there are at least three of them. After that they spread in a random way to provide a guaranteed win. Free spins stop once all Wilds are awarded. This is the Stashed Wilds Feature.
All in all, this Microgaming release is a good example of an Egyptian-themed game with interesting features and good-looking graphics. This slot machine doesn’t offer a progressive jackpot but it is still possible to win up to 260 000. We recommend that you try it and find out if the gods of Ancient Egypt are favourable to you.
