Theme, Visuals and Audio

Instead of setting the game in sand like we are used to seeing in nearly all ancient Egypt themed slots, Scarab Kingdom plays out at the backdrop of lush greenery, blue waters, and ancient statues inside the Garden of the Pharaohs. The relaxing but instantly relatable audio track adds more to the slot’s feel of grandeur, relaxation, and ancient mysteries. During certain bonus rounds, the backdrop shifts to steps inside Cleopatra’s palace, possibly leading to the treasure room. Overall, the setting is refreshingly different and well done, despite being so common.

Game Mechanics: Bonus Rounds, Symbols and Jackpots

Scarab Kingdom is a pick’em slot designed to be enjoyable for everyone. The following highlights should provide you with an idea regarding what to expect from its symbols, bonus rounds and jackpots.

  • Common card-suite symbols from 10-to-Ace, pink ankh, green Eye of Horus, blue lotus, etc.
  • The Red Scarab is the scatter symbol
  • Pharaoh, Cleopatra and the Wild Scroll are the premium symbols, each of which can occupy up to 3 places when fully expanded
  • If 5 places are occupied by any of the 3 premium symbols on a payline, a 10x multiplier is immediately activated
  • Wild Scrolls can also act as regular symbols to make a matching combination for the win
  • Landing enough Wild Scrolls will activate the Blue Scarab Collection Mode
  • Collect 100 Blue Scarabs to activate the Cleo’s Bonus Pick’em Bonus

Inside the Cleo’s Bonus Pick’em Bonus round, the player gets to choose between 12 ornate gold coins. The 4 Egyptian Gods on the left are constantly present and they are also color-coded for easier identification of the respective jackpots they represent.

  • Green = 15x
  • Pink = 40x
  • Red = 200x
  • Blue = 5,000x

To win any of the jackpot multipliers in Scarab Kingdom, you just need to pick 3 matching symbols as you choose and turn over the ornate coins to reveal what’s on the other side.

Pharaoh’s Bonus Round

In case the player can land 3 red scarabs (scatter symbol) on the 3 inner reels, they will activate the Pharaoh’s Bonus Round, aka the Free Spins round. Here, you might be able to trigger Free Spins indefinitely for a long time, provided that you have a bit of luck on your side.

1x1 premium symbols and Wild Scrolls will expand to their full 3x1 size immediately on landing to give you three more free spins, as long as the Pharaoh’s Bonus round is active. Every time you get a free spin, the multiplier will continue to increase by +1, and there is no upper limit here. Also, the final multiplier will multiply your total win amount at the end of the round. Pharaoh’s Bonus Round ends when all Wild Scrolls have shrunk and disappeared completely from all reels.

If you like ancient Egyptian motifs in your slot games and would not mind seeing a refreshing take on the overdone theme, then Scarab Kingdom will not disappoint. Since Scarab Kingdom is also a classic pick’em slot which offers players several chances of winning massive jackpots, we would say that this one is a must play for anyone interested in high quality online slots.
