Theme of The Game
If you’re a fan of the Ancient Egypt period in our planet’s history, then you’re likely to be quite happy about the current slot machine landscape, as there are a lot of themed games of this type around. Wild Scarabs is one more game that gets us to travel to that time period, and it will be available at Microgaming casinos, as it’s one of their releases.
It’s an average theme, related to Ancient Egypt, and its symbols will reflect that. Images have the scarab or the Sun, along with several gods (Anubis, Horus), the Eye of Ra, Ankh and four card suits. Not a very impressive game, but it’s above average at least.
For a company like Microgaming, most players will not need an introduction. The industry giant has been a creator of casino games since 1996, the first to do it for the online casino market. They’ve been building up a collection of over 500 slot machines since then, and they have the largest number of games out of all companies. They might not pick the most unique themes around, as Wild Scarabs can attest, but they tend to release solid titles overall.
How To Play It
With bets designed to cover 20 lines, which will be enough to activate the 243 ways to win, you may pick a number of up to 15 coins per line and a denomination that reaches $0.20. You have a line bet of up to $3 that way, or up to $60 total.
The interface is going to be a regular one for this company. It has the options at the bottom, with the paytable accessible from the button on the left side.

The title mentions it, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that Wild Scarabs are indeed a thing here. These wild symbols will form your best paying combinations, simply by appearing up to five times on just as many reels, whatever the position. Their individual rewards reach 750x the line bet. As wilds, they are included in any combinations formed which include positions on their reels.
Wild Deals are features that can trigger if you have a round without a win, but with a wild on the 3rd reel. You can get up to four extra wilds and there is a guaranteed win coming your way.
The Scarab is another symbol that can pay well, even better than the wild actually. Should two to five of these symbols appear, the rewards can reach 100x the bet. When they’re in 3+ symbols, they give you 10 free spins with Stashed Wilds. These are collected and then redistributed on the reels for a guaranteed win.
The best win that’s obtained in this game is $104,000, an amount that will involve multiple winning combinations obtained in a single spin. The best regular combo will pay only $2,250 though, while five scatters can give you up to $6,000 (100x the bet).
The features help save the game and they make it somewhat interesting, something that the theme doesn’t do at all. The Ancient Egypt category is a very crowded one, so it’s not going to be easy for this mobile slot to stand out.
