Ancient Egypt Classic Slot

Pragmatic Play

Ancient Egypt Classic is a 5 reel and 10 paylines video slot powered by Pragmatic Play software provider. The game is inspired with the Ancient Egypt and the hidden treasures. The slot very much resembles the Book of Ra, but it has its own twists and turns, and special features of course. Warm colors and soothing graphics are perfectly paired with eerie Egyptian sound effects. If you decide you want to travel to visit Egypt, you can do it right here on our page for fun, or you can go to any Pragmatic Play Casino and do it for real.

How to Play Ancient Egypt Classic Slot

The adventure can start right here and right now, all you need to do beforehand is to set your bets and here’s how you’ll do it. 

  • Hitting +/- button will result in a separate betting panel opening where you can increase and decrease Bet and Coin Value.
  • Spin sets the reels in motion once the bets have been set.
  • For moments when you get tired of spinning the reels incessantly, you can simply hit Autoplay and choose the number of times that you wish for the reels to turn automatically without interruptions.

Slot Features

All symbols pay left to right on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel. Cleopatra is the highest paying symbol in the game, and the Golden Scarab beetle is both Wild and Scatter which means that this game will be all about chasing beetles.

As Wild, Scarab can substitute for all the symbols in the game and can award Scatter wins. In addition, if you land 3 or more Scarabs anywhere on the reels you will trigger the Free Spins feature.

Free Spins

Once triggered you will be awarded with 10 spins plus one special symbol which will be chosen at random. Special symbol will have the ability to expand and cover the entire reel which will increase your chances of winning big. Additional 3 Scarabs will re-trigger the feature that will start when the current one ends, and with new round of spins, you will get a new special symbol. Free Spins can be re-triggered indefinite number of times.


Ancient Egypt Classic slot is highly volatile slot which will pay less often but with higher chances to hit big, and in short time span. The RTP is set at 96.47% which should be more than enough for you to decide to give it a shot. We believe that this slot is a pretty decent clone of the original and that Pragmatic Play really did a good job on this one.

Ancient Egypt Classic, the name alone says it all. This slot takes you down memory lane into the land of pharaoh's which means ancient history. Pragmatic play released this 2nd addition of the original Ancient Egypt slot. This slot is the basic 5 reel, 10 payline slot that comes with a bonus round that awards unlimited free spins with a special expanding symbol. If you know the "Book of" slots, then you know what to expect already

On the reels you’ll see A to 10 playing cards. More rewarding symbols include the hieroglyphs, the eye of Horus and the ankh cross both offer pay-outs of up to 75 times your stake per payline. The Anubis pays x200 your stake and of course cleopatra pays x500 for 5 of kind combination.

The golden scarab beetle is both the wild and the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them on the same spin and you’ll receive 2, 20 or 200 times your stake payout as well as triggering the free spins feature. 1 symbol will be randomly selected and act as scatter symbol during free spins. The only difference is with some slots with this feature if retriggered the same symbol is chosen or a different symbol on each retrigger.

I actually gave this slot close to 20 000 spins if I am not mistaken and I am still not impressed. I eventually had a decent x1000 winner but 90% of the time I win between 5 – 25x my total bet. I am not sure how the maths behind this slot works, but you will never see this in any other similar slot like book of dead or ra. Triggering the free spins is a mission, I went close to 500 spins without a feature and then a win of x10 whenever I trigger the free spins. I do not like this slot that much, however unlike other similar slots this one keeps the balance steady at times and some decent base game hits every now and then. I would most probably play the normal Ancient Egypt more often than this one and take my gamble chances on the bonus feature.

Latest Update:

After playing about 300 Free Spins games on this Ancient Egypt Classic game, I now need to do an updated comment on it, purely not to mislead other players by my initial review.

Although the paytable of the game may look very good, with a maximum single win of 5000x the total bet by getting all of Cleopatra's Expanding Symbols during the free spins, unfortunately, I think this is all just a big hoax! Yes, that max win may be possible to get, but it would most probably come only once in a lifetime! Why do I say this? Simply because the numerous times that I had gotten Cleopatra as the selected Expanding Symbol, she almost completely disappears from the free spins each and every time, leaving 1, 2 or very rarely 3 symbols to appear...never 4, never all 5! Not only that, out of the many Free Spins games that I had played, 8 or 9 out of the 10 free spins would be completely without any win! That's a total disappointment and something which I would never have expected!

In comparison, I have played many other similar games, such as Book Of Ra, Book Of Dead, Book Of Tattoo, Captain's Treasure, etc, but all those games have played and paid significantly better than Pragmatic Play's Ancient Egypt Classic!

So, before you start playing this game, consider yourself warned! Hehehe.

Cleopatra has never been that kind or good to me - none of her games have ever given me good nice wins, except for RTG's Coins Of Cleopatra, but even that win wasn't really good I must admit. So when Pragmatic Play released this Ancient Egypt Classic exclusive tournament at Askgamblers, I was determined to enter it. However, I had to miss out on the first part of the tourney, simply because my Neteller was 'sick', but my local favourite Asian-based casino suddenly installed Pragmatic Play's platform, and out of the blue, gave me that chance to participate after all. Yay!

Within 3 straight days of playing the game, I had managed to get and collect about 20 winning screenshots so far, each being of 50x total bet win or more, but I'm still trying my best to get that big win screenie to chase for the top prize, hehehe. Unlike PlaynGo's Book Of Dead game, which played horribly for me each and every time I had played it, Pragmatic's Ancient Egypt Classic game was the opposite. In fact, I am rather enjoying the game right now, the free spins do come quite often, and the longest empty stretch so far has been about 700 spins, which is only to be expected of a high volatile game, but definitely not as ridiculous as BTG's Bonanza game, which could go for a few thousands of empty spins!

Needless to say, the best possible single win is an incredible 5000x the total bet amount, by getting all of Cleopatra's Expanding symbols on the 5 reels during the free spins game, but of course, not everyone may get the lucky opportunity to win it. But, if you don't try, you definitely won't get it, would you? Hehehe.

Honestly speaking, there isn't anything that I don't like about this game. The game play is good, the payouts are decent about half the time, the maximum possible win is more than 5000x the total bet amount (within 1 free spins game), and I haven't encountered a blardy long empty spins stretch so far, so I ain't complaining. However, probably many other players may face an opposite situation playing this game, but this is also only to be expected of any game. To me personally, Ancient Egypt Classic is currently better than PNG's Book Of Dead, or any other similar expanding-symbols game.
