Ancient Egypt themed pokies are very popular at Australian online casinos and Microgaming offers a fair number of them in its portfolio. The titles include Isis, Pharaoh's Tomb, Ramesses Riches, Treasure Nile and Throne of Egypt and can be played at online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and Jackpot City. Two of the best are reviewed here.
Isis is the Egyptian goddess of motherhood, magic and fertility. Isis online pokie loads with an introductory video clip in which the goddess changes into her bird form and flies over the Nile and the Pyramids. The ornate and bold symbols on the reels are rich in Egyptian mythology. Fans of this genre will recognise and enjoy the mythological significance of the symbols. For example, one of them is Isis' headdress consisting of the horns of a cow with the solar disc between them. Another symbol is the Eye of Horus, who was the son of Isis. Isis as the goddess is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. It also awards the top line payout of 10,000 coins. Isis as the bird is the scatter symbol. It awards scatter payouts and triggers up to 30 free spins in which all payouts are multiplied six times. Isis online pokie also offers the Microgaming gamble game.
Throne of Egypt appropriately has a grand setting and regal background music. The Throne of Egypt logo is a stacked wild symbol and awards the highest line payout of 10,000 coins. The other Egyptian symbols include Pharaoh, Queen, Horus, Set and rich ornaments. The scatter symbol triggers the free spins bonus with doubled payouts. The more exciting feature is the multi-level Bonus Chamber game on the second screen. The game is triggered when the Eye symbol appears scattered on each of reels 2, 3 and 4. You first play the Scarab Bonus. 12 scarabs are displayed on the second screen. You keep picking them till one reveals a golden key. You are credited with the bonuses earned and are taken to the Eagle Bonus. Here you select three eagles from the nine displayed. If one of them reveals a key then you proceed to the Princess Bonus. You now select one from three princesses. She will award a multiplier that will be applied to all credits won in the bonus round. Throne of Egypt is a 25 payline video slot. You can wager up to 5 coins per payline at the chosen coin size.
