Graphics & Sound
Net Entertainment constantly goes all-out to create sophisticated graphics and sounds, just to make you become thoroughly engaged and have fun at the same time when playing any of their slots games. As for its background setting, Egyptian Heroes has a museum-like ambience that features popular deities of Egypt such as the sun god Ra, the cat goddess Bastet, and the Nile god Sobek. The symbols are drawn very intricately and you will surely love its animated programming whenever you hit winning combinations, most especially when you hit the Expanding Wild symbol that expands on the entire reel and shows the sky opening up and light beams down the pyramid. The overall graphic design of Egyptian Heroes showcases a wide array of vibrant colors such as red, orange, yellow, purple, gray, blue, and green.
Since museums are normally silent areas (except when there are excursions or field trips), there is no constant background music that you will hear on Egyptian Heroes online slot game. The vibrantly-colored Egyptian gods and other symbols included in the Egyptian Heroes online video slot game are greatly matched by different kinds of entertaining Egyptian-inspired sound effects whenever you manage to hit a winning combination.
The regular symbols are the card deck symbols which are 9, 10, J, Q, K and Ace; and the other symbols are the vibrantly-colored Egyptian gods such as Ra (the sun god), Bastet (cat goddess that represents Lower Egypt), Hathor (sky goddess of love, beauty and motherhood that represents Upper Egypt), Osiris (god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead, and Sobek (god of the crocodiles and the Nile; crocodiles were immensely feared in the nation of Egypt that was so dependent on the Nile River, so they believed that if they pray to Sobek, he will protect them from being attacked by the crocodiles when they traveled on the Nile).
The Wild Symbol is the Pyramid. The Pyramid acts as a substitute for all other symbols, with the exception of the scatter symbol. The Pyramid Wild symbol in the Egyptian Heroes online video slot game has two great functions:
In the regular Egyptian Heroes slot game, the Pyramid Wild symbol only appears on the 2nd, 3rd and/or 4th reels, and this will expand (Expanding Wild Symbols) in order to cover the entire reel to complete winning combinations.
In the Free Spin Bonus Feature game, a Sticky Expanded Wild symbol automatically covers the entire middle reel (3rd reel) to let you have a chance to get much bigger wins. Moreover, the Pyramid Wild symbol that appears only on the 2nd and 4th reels will also expand in order to cover the whole reel to complete winning combinations.
The Scatter Symbol is the Pharaohs Tomb. The Scatter symbol (Pharaohs Tomb) does not need to come out in a line on an enabled pay line for you to win. If you hit 3 or more of this scatter symbol (which are scattered anywhere on the 5 reels), you will activate the Free Spin Bonus Feature game where you can win up to 20 free spins!
There is no Gamble Feature in this game.
The awesomely generous (as slot players have claimed) Egyptian Heroes Free Spin Bonus Feature game is activated when you hit 3 or more Scatter Symbols (Pharaohs Tomb) that appear anywhere on the 5 reels, wherein you win 10, 15, or 20 Free Spins! What’s more exciting and absolutely fun during the Free Spin Bonus Feature games is that a Sticky Expanded Wild symbol covers the middle reel to help you get a chance to grab bigger wins! Furthermore, the Pyramid Wild symbols found on the 2nd and 4th reels expand as well when you complete winning bet lines. To add more fun to your gameplay, if you manage to hit again another 3 or more Pharaohs Tomb scatter symbols (that are scattered anywhere on the reels) while still playing the Free Spin Bonus Feature game, you are then awarded another sweet 10, 15, or 20 Free Spins!
The extra Free Spins you get are added to your remaining number of Free Spins. An infinite number of additional Free Spins can be won during the Free Spin Bonus Feature game. When the Free Spin Bonus Feature game has ended, you are then returned to the main Egyptian Heroes video slot game and your Free Spin game wins are included to your total win.
