Welcome Aboard,

Rise of Egypt

Ancient Egypt… we’ve been here before, haven’t we? Slots often feature this theme because it is popular among players. We are visiting this ancient time once again in the Rise of Egypt, so will you rise to the occasion and give it a try?

Which developer should we thank for creating Rise of Egypt?

This good-looking slot game comes from the realm of Playson. Never heard of them? Maybe you have heard of some of their other games:

  • Alice in Wonderslots
  • Crystal Land
  • Merry Christmas
  • Treasures of Tombs: Hidden Gold

Basic elements in the Rise of Egypt slot

Before you play, you should review the main elements of the game below. This will help you decide whether the slot game is ideal for you and your budget:

  • Five reels
  • 20 paylines
  • Play from just 20p per spin
  • All lines are fixed in play
  • Top bet per spin is £100

Top tip: Don’t be afraid to try the Rise of Egypt slot mobile version

This is just as easy to play as the desktop version. You simply tap the controls to play instead of using your mouse.

Is it possible to adopt a game strategy?

In a word… no. When a slot has fixed paylines, requiring you to play them all, you cannot do much other than settle on the best bet for each spin. A low 20p bet per spin means you will make your budget go further.

Rise of Egypt special features

Ancient Egypt is full of mystery. This game has some appealing features too, so let’s see what they are.


  • The Egyptian goddess Bastet appears in gold on a gold background
  • Appears on the second, third, and fourth reels
  • Can expand to fill the reel whenever it appears
  • This causes Bastet to appear in full height, rather than just the head and shoulders showing
  • It will only expand if doing so will award further prizes
  • It cannot replace the scatter, but it will replace everything else


  • This is depicted as a golden pyramid
  • Scatter wins are paid whenever three or more appear
  • Scatters do not need to land on a payline to win

Free spins

Yes, you have a bonus feature to look forward to if you can spin the right combination into view during a base game.

  • Three or more scattered pyramids are required
  • You will win 12 free spins
  • Find three or more scatters in the free spins and you’ll win another 12 free games
  • Every time a wild icon appears in the free games, you win another free spin
  • Furthermore, wilds cause lower-paying symbols to be substituted by higher-paying symbols
  • The substitutions happen in order as shown on the pay table
  • Free spins are limited to 35 at most

Does the slot have a nice design?

It does, with lots of ancient Egyptian signs and images present on the reels. Other symbols include:

  • An ankh
  • An eye
  • A bird
  • A scarab beetle

There are also lower-paying symbols which are shown as the king, queen, jack, and ace letters associated with playing cards.

We’ll give the Rise of Egypt slot plus points for the following:

  • Simple controls under the reels
  • Easy to access pay table
  • 20 lines clearly indicated to the sides of the reels
  • A suitably-Egyptian background with pyramids just in view
  • A strong colour selection without being too garish

This gets good marks from us. If you want to try your luck with a slot that takes you back in time to ancient Egypt, this one from Playson is certainly a good one to consider. It boasts a free demo as well as the paid version too.
