Set in ancient Egypt in an era that has long since passed, Wild Scarabs is a thrilling 5 x 3 reel, 243 way online slot game that invites players to explore tombs filled with priceless treasures in the latest game from Microgaming.
Immediately, players will notice that the reels themselves are adorned with colorful and exciting jeweled symbols, creating the perfect opportunity to revel as the gilded scarabs lead them to not one but two unbeatable Wild features.
Players can take their efforts to the next level with the Base Game with Wild Deal, which will release up to four extra wilds to form a guaranteed win on any non-winning spin.

Even the free spins feature can leverage three or more scatters to award up to ten free spins - easily making this one of the most generous games available today.
With a modest minimum bet of just $0.20, players can enjoy wins of up to $104,000.00 - making this truly the treasure-filled adventure that a lot of people have been waiting for!
The rules for Wild Scarabs are broken down into a few different categories, depending on exactly which version you choose to play. These include "Way" wins, which are always awarded for left-to-right adjacent combinations of symbols. "Way" wins are also always multiplied by the original "Coins" bet that was placed. Only the highest winning combination will be awarded a prize, as per the symbol combination present. "Way" rules give players 243 unique opportunities to win.
Next up are the "Scatter" rules. The "Scatter" symbol will always pay in any position during the game itself. "Scatter" symbol wins will also multiply by the total bet that has been staked. These wins will also add to any "Way" wins that may be present.
Equally important (and exciting) are the "Wild" rules. If a winning combination of symbols is present, the "Wild" symbol will therefore substitute for ALL symbols - with the exception of the "Scatter" symbol.
Using the "Wild Deal," feature, any non-winning spin with a "Wild" symbol present on Reel 3 will automatically trigger this feature. Up to four additional "Wild" symbols will be dealt onto the reels. Any "Wild" symbols that have been dealt, as stated, can replace ANY symbol. It's also important to note that the "Wild Deal" feature will ALWAYS award a guaranteed win to the player.
Finally, there are the "Free Spin" rules. If three or more "Scatter" symbols" appear anywhere on the reels, it will instantly trigger the opportunity for ten free spins. All non-winning "Wilds" are stored as a part of the "Stashed Wilds" feature. When three or more "Wild" symbols have been collected over the duration of play, they are then randomly distributed to form a guaranteed win opportunity for the player. These awarded free spins will continue until ALL "Wild" symbols have been awarded. It is important to note that free spins CANNOT be re-triggered. Likewise, all bets are played the same as they were in the game that originally triggered the free spins in the first place.
