Wild Egypt (released in October 2016) is a King Tut era-inspired video slot developed by Cayetano Gaming, and provided by Red Tiger Gaming. Its themes include weather elements, galaxy, gold, Coptic Christianity, Egyptian gods, hieroglyphs, afterlife, and pyramids. Cayetano Gaming has numerous Wild-themed online slot games, including: The Great Wild (September 2019), Fruit Stack Super Double Wild (April 2018), Wild Stars, Dragon Wild, Egyptian Wilds, Jousting Wilds (May 2017), Totems Wild, Wild Bugs, and Wild Sheriff. Wild Egypt’s rivals include Egyptian Wild (October 2015) from WorldMatch, Book of Ra (March 2005) from Novomatic, and Cleo Queen of Egypt (August 2009) from StarsGroup.
The Egyptian theme and both instant and random Wild symbols inspired the naming. The Wild Egypt players aim for three, four, or five winning combinations.
Wild Egypt Game Characteristics
Wild Egypt has a cream 5X5 grid with cascading symbols that, during spinning, momentarily disappear altogether to show a blue constellation behind it. There are twelve symbols that can transform into Wilds, free spins, five fixed pay lines, two Wilds, two substitutes, win multipliers, disappearing Wilds, random Wilds during the free games mode, and fourteen bet sizes. Wild Egypt’s fixed odds offers regular payouts ranging from X1 to X50.
The Wild Egypt symbols consist of three special symbols and nine ordinary symbols. The special symbols: a golden free spins-offering Pharaoh’s statue; a golden substituting “WILD” Ankh cross; and a white-and-blue substituting “WILD” Ankh cross.
The ordinary symbols: a jade-encased multicolored trinket; a blue-and-white Eye of Horus; a scarab-encased golden pyramid; a King Tut’s headdress; a colorful jackal god Anubis; a blue-and-golden scarab beetle; a purple lotus flower; a green falcon god Horus; and a golden hieroglyphics tablet.
Upon loading, Wild Egypt’s starting page shows its three special features: instant wilds, progressive win multipliers, and free games. Pressing “start” takes players to the interface, where an alternative to pressing the spin icon is swiping down on the grid.
The Wild Egypt bet sizes: $0.20 (minimum), $0.40, $0.60, $0.80, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $6.00, $8.00, $10.00, $20.00, $40.00, $60.00, $80.00, and $100.00 (maximum).
The Wild Egypt payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. Either the golden “WILD” Ankh cross, or white-and-blue “WILD” Ankh cross pays X3, X10, and X50. The trinket pays X2, X8, and X30. The Eye of Horus pays X2, X7, and X25. The pyramid pays X2, X6, and X20. King Tut’s headdress pays X2, X5, and X18; the jackal god Anubis pays X1, X5, and X15. The beetle pays X1, X5, and X14. The lotus flower pays X1, X4, and X13. The falcon god Horus pays X1, X4, and X12. The tablet pays X1, X4, and X11.
The white-and-blue Ankh cross can even offer seven Wilds at random. The pharaoh statue gives five free games. The so-called scripture winnings can reach X250 of the bet (or $100 X250, amounting to $25000). However, the progressive jackpot can reach X800; therefore, $100 X800 amounts to $80000.00.
The good Wild Egypt software has an orderly interface that is fitted with a fast mode, drop-down menus, automated spins (10-100 spins; or based on $20.00-$20000.00 loss limit). The melodious sound effects consist of ancient Egyptian musical instrument, including sistrum and drumming. The 3D animated graphics are appealing. There is a doorway that slides open, leading to a castle guarded by priests holding golden Ankhs that turn into lighting bolts during wins; a star-studded blue sky on the foreground; dusty spins; and a twinkling Orion constellation beneath the grid.
