Ankh of Anubis. One more Egyptian release from Play’n GO: fail or not?
Yes, I know exactly what you think because I do too. Play’n GO is addicted to Egyptian slots. Book of Dead, Rise of Dead, Legacy of Dead, Legacy of Egypt, Doom of Egypt, and Ankh of Anubis is the latest title in this list, released on December, 5.
The problem is not the Egyptian theme itself, but that it becomes quite complicated to differentiate all these Egypt-related slots. Furthermore, the gameplay of the above-listed titles does not look innovative. Fortunately, Ankh of Anubis offers some changes that were really needed.
The game looks like an unusual mix of ancient Egypt and a fantasy space world. It seems like we meet with an ancient alien civilization: the huge planet and pyramids are located on the background. Though, a reference to Anubis, the God of Death, is evident when we take a look at reels. Here we can see some typical Egyptian elements, such as the River Nile, traditional feluccas and ancient pyramids as well. The developers tried to combine two different periods: the past and the future.
Ankh of Anubis video slot is not bloated with different features. You could benefit from random wilds, free spins mode with additional wilds and unlimited retriggers are also possible. All these features can lead to wins of up to 15,000x your bet.
The first sign that you’re about to embark on a space journey is the unusual 3-4-4-4-3-reel grid with a 576 “pays-all-ways” mechanic. The wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. Thus, Ankh of Anubis represents absolutely different gaming experience, if we compare it to the standard 5×3 Egyptian slots.
The game is a highly volatile one, 8 out of 10, according to Play’n GO. For instance, their last titles Big Win 777 and Black Mamba have 10 out of 10. RTP of the slot is 96.20%, but some online casino operators offer a lower RTP of just 94.20%. Please, pay your attention to the help files to find out, which version you are going to play.
The slot is playable from 0.10 to €/£100 per spin across all devices, including iOS and Android.
When it comes to the symbols, the low-value ones are card royals from Jack to Ace. You can get from 0.3x to 0.6x your stake for five of a kind. The high-value symbols are blue-gemmed bracelets, green-gemmed amulets, scarab beetles with red gems and purple Ankh crosses, which pay max 5x for 5 adjacent icons. Anubis is the wild symbol, awarding 10x your bet for five of them. It substitutes for all other symbols, except scatter – a golden pyramid.
The most pleasant thing about the slot is that a max win can be 15,000x, which is high compared to other slots from the developer.
- Anubis Wild Feature
- Free Spins
As we mentioned before, Ankh of Anubis is not packed with different features. Still, those that are offered have good potential.
In the base game, you can profit from the Anubis Wild feature: wilds are triggered randomly and can cover the full reel.
The highlight of the game is the Free Spins feature. 3, 4, or 5 scatters award you 10, 15, or 20 free spins respectively. As we said before, landing 3 or more scatters within the bonus leads to retriggers.
In the upper-left corner of the grid, there is an Ankh-meter. Collect 5 Ankh symbols during the free spins mode and you trigger the Anubis Wilds feature. 5 Ankhs symbols increase the number of wilds which could appear on the reels. When the meter is full of symbols, the Anubis Wilds feature is activated and the meter is filled again.
The most exciting thing for me about Ankh of Anubis video slot is not an unusual grid format or Ancient-futuristic theme mix. The most interesting part of the game is the highest potential ever released by Play’n GO (by now). The max win possible is x15,000 times your initial stake. It is not that big compared to such providers as Blueprint, Big Time Gaming or NetEnt. Anyway, it is higher than we used to have.
One more positive side is medium volatility, which increases your chances to get higher winnings. It is still low, but at the same time, not as low as in many other games from the provider.
When it comes to gameplay, for me, it is quite straightforward and even boring. The slot is not bursting with features; they act ordinarily but can pay out well. The Anubis Wilds feature often triggers multiple and stacked wilds, which is one more positive point.
Free Spins mode is also worth mentioning: Anubis Wilds are launched a bit often during the bonus game if we compare to other highly volatile slots.
A full screen of Anubis Wilds pays 5,760x your bet, which is a great winning. We wish you to get a full screen of wilds in the Free Spins to scoop the max win!
Well, I am not really sure how to rate this Play’n GO game. It is likely to generate a lot of big win YouTube-videos for all of us.
