The Gods of ancient Egypt aren’t quite done with this realm just yet. One last mission still stands, and it’s to bestow epic fortunes upon those spinning the reels of Cairo Link & Win. This is the latest of a long line of online slot games from a very famous casino games developer, and comes with the exciting Link & Win addition. This is a feature that awards respins returning multiplier prizes, while all players have the chance of the free spins feature for added value. Not only this, but there are also expanding reels plus the prospect of a possible 10,000x your stake as the top reward.
Gold Coin Studios is the studio that developed Cairo Link & Win. This is actually a sub-studio that falls under the mighty Microgaming stable, and the production quality definitely shows. The theme is ancient Egyptian, and this might be the same theme we've seen more times than we care to count, but that being said, the illustrations are pretty good. You'll see up to the left of the screen, some jackpot values, but we'll explain this a bit later.
Coming to the specs, Cairo Link & Win has a highly volatile reel set consisting of 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. The wagering options won’t stretch you too far, as the minimum you can stake is 0.20 and the maximum 25 per spin.
As expected, it’s all very Egyptian in Cairo Link & Win. As the highest paying icon, there's Cleopatra, who is joined by an eagle, a jackal and a cat as higher value symbols. The lower paying icons are playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
The wild symbol substitutes all regular icons. However, it cannot substitute for other special symbols: the eye, the pyramids or the blue orb.
The blue orb is the Link & Win symbol, and landing a minimum of 6 triggers the Link & Win feature. You get three respins, with only blue orbs containing cash values that can land. Every time one does, respins are reset to 3, and the cash value of the orb is paid to you. Those four jackpots can also land in the orbs, meaning that the Mega worth 10,000x your stake can be won here.
Ten free spins are triggered by landing three or more pyramid scatters, while landing an eye symbol on reels 1 and 2 will turn reels 3, 4 and 5 into a 3x5 grid where blue orbs landing will return an instant prize.
Cairo Link & Win is a solid edition to the Link & Win series of online slots. Something that will get most of us very intrigued is the potential biggest reward of 10,000x your stake, while having free spins, respins, and extra added value means that Cairo Link & Win has a serious stock of possible prizes.
