Eye of Horus game info
The original version of the Eye of Horus slot franchise, Blueprint Gaming’s title was first released in 2016 and its success has since spawned a string of slot variants, including a version powered by the Megaways game engine. Its basic animations make the Eye of Horus game ideally suited to mobile play. Regular visitors to land-based casinos may also have discovered this on video slot machines and it’s translated well to the online scene.
There are two primary features in the original Eye of Horus slot. First and foremost, there’s the Free Spins bonus, which dishes out a dozen free games and opportunities to land exciting symbol combinations. The God of Horus wild symbol is also an expanding wild, filling reels two, three or four whenever it appears.
Payouts and volatility
The maximum payouts available are worth 10,000x your initial stake. It’s also set as a high volatility slot, with less frequent yet larger payouts anticipated compared with low or medium volatility games.
Free spins and bonus rounds
- Free Spins Feature The symbol that’s designed to look like the entrance to a tomb is this slot’s scatter symbol. Lock in three, four or five of these anywhere on-screen during the same spin to win payouts worth two, 20x or 50x your initial wager. You’ll also get 12 free spins to play with. There is an Expanding Wilds feature in play during every free spin. The bird-headed Egyptian god Horus is the wild symbol. Whenever it lands it expands to fill entire reels. Each time it appears it upgrades one of the low-value hieroglyphic symbols before upgrading base game symbols like the fan, the ankh cross and the scarab beetle into higher-value symbols. You’ll also be pleased to hear that every wild you lock in adds at least one extra spin to your remaining total. Get three wilds on the same free spin to win another five free spins.
- Bonus Rounds The Expanding Wilds feature acts as a reel modifier in its own right outside of the Free Spins feature. Whenever a Horus wild appears on reels two, three or four it fills the entire reel, triggering one re-spin with the fully wild reel locked firmly in place. It’s possible to get three re-spins and make all three reels fully wild to increase your chance of filling up wilds on all five reels for the biggest payout.
