Win Interactive has taken one of its popular titles from the last decade and given it a revamp. Loot’EnKhamun and the Dead Sea Scrolls may look a bit retro as the studio didn’t bother much with upgrading the graphics, deciding the best way to modernise the game was to add a whole load of extra features instead. I’ll tell you about those in a minute, but first, the basics.
The game is played on a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows with 243 paylines in the base game. This increases to 1,024 in the Free Spins thanks to the addition of an extra row to the reels. The betting range goes from 0.10 up to 50.00 per spin in this medium volatility game.
The symbols on the reels are pretty standard for an Egyptian-themed game since this is based on a much older release. Card ranks from 9 to Ace are the lower value symbols, while the pyramids, sarcophagus, sphinx, etc, are the premium symbols.
The game’s logo has been chosen as the Wild and will stand in for all regular symbols to form wins, but it can only land on reels 1 to 4.
There's a hieroglyph symbol attached to each reel in this game. These are Scatters, and when three of them land at once, the bonus round is triggered.
If three Scatter symbols land, the player is taken to another screen, where they'll see three slabs of stone, or they could be sarcophagi. Choose one, and a friendly archaeologist will come and break it open. It could hold Free Spins, multipliers, or nothing at all, in which case the player is taken straight back to the base game. If Free Spins are uncovered, an extra row is added to the reels providing an incredible 1,024 ways to win.
Players of Loot’EnKhamun also have the chance to try and win one of five progressive jackpots. Participants in this round are chosen by a lottery system, and it can trigger randomly at any time.
A new screen will appear with a wheel of fortune. This is divided into different colour segments corresponding to the various jackpots. To win one of the jackpots, players must land on the same colour three times!
Loot'EnKhamun and the Dead Sea Scrolls is an excellent reworking of an old title. I enjoyed the pick'em game before the free spins and the element of suspense it brings to the gameplay. And knowing that you could be chosen to play for potentially a huge sum of money is always a bonus of these progressive jackpot games. So check out this great slot for yourself today at Gala Casino!
