Sands of Fortune is an Egyptian-inspired slot, brought to us by Eyecon. This casino game takes us to the sandy terrain of Egypt, with five reels to play on and nine different ways to win. From hieroglyphics to pyramids, you will see the classic Egyptian symbols with each spin of the reels. The RTP of the Sands of Fortune slot is 93.76% and it has three individual bonus features to it, which can be triggered with some fortuitous landings on the reels.
Ra, the Egyptian god of the sun, stands at each side of the reels, watching as you play. In fact, he was considered to be the king of the gods, so you’ve got the best of the bunch with you on your Egyptian escapade.
We’ve also got some theatrical music to accompany you while you play. While it might not sound like what you imagine as music from the Ancient Egyptian times, it certainly brings a unique essence to the Sands of Fortune slot. Once you hear it, you’ll understand!
In contrast to what you might be used to with slot games, Sands of Fortune has switched around the high and low-value symbols. The Ace, King and Queen have top pay-outs, ranging from 500 to 2000 times your line bet, whereas the Egyptian symbols are lower in value. Maximum returns for matching five of the Egyptian symbols range from nine to 100 times your line bet.
Set your bet up before you venture across the Egyptian plains. Of the nine paylines, you can choose to play all of them or just some of them. Click on the icon which looks like a pile of coins and use the up and down arrows to adjust this.
You will also see that you have the option to adjust the coin bet per payline. This ranges from 1p up to £5, so there really is a suitable bet level for all kinds of players.
The bet per line will be multiplied by the number of paylines you decide to play, creating your total bet per spin. If you wish to check this amount, it will be shown at the top of the game in the middle golden box.
Once you’ve sorted the stake, hit spin, and get your feet in the sand.
There are three bonus features in the Sands of Fortune slot. While some may be familiar, there is one feature that is unique to this adventure.
What looks like a big disk in a hieroglyphic-covered wall is the wild symbol. It is easily identified by the ‘Wild’ written on it. This symbol can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play, helping you to create and extend any winning combinations, should it land in the perfect position.
If a wild is part of a win, you will see a dog face pop up, an animal which was common in ancient Egyptian paintings.
Landing three of the bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, in a single spin, can trigger the bonus feature.
In the bonus round, you will be shown three passageways in the ancient tomb. Choose a passageway to enter into and search for treasures and artefacts. Should you manage to find a special artefact in the passageway, you will reap the rewards and be able to continue your exploration for more prizes.
Beware, though, if you head down a corridor with a trap, your feature will end.
Another exciting symbol which you may have the pleasure of finding is the jackpot symbol. In the same way that standard wins are created, you will need to match up three or more on an active payline to win. The ultimate jackpot bonus for landing a payline filled with these symbols is a whopping 5000 times your line bet!
The producers have given the Sands of Fortune slot a nice touch. It may look like there is a lot of black and plain colours on the reels, but with every winning combination of symbols, those in the combo will glow with colour, and it is great to see.
Sands of Fortune may not be all singing, all dancing with its features, despite the upbeat backing track, however, it is a nice twist on the classic format, particularly with the bonus game.
