Lady of Egypt from WMS: Slot Review - a land ruled by a beautiful queen

Visit ancient Egypt when a famous pharaoh ruled the entire country.

This game is based in ancient Egyptian times and it revolves around a beautiful lady known as the “Lady of Egypt”. It is clearly inspired by Cleopatra who is one of the most famous women in history and the last pharaoh of Egypt before it was ruled by the Roman Empire. Cleopatra was famous for trying to save her kingdom by manipulating Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony and this was depicted in the 1963 sprawling epic movie “Cleopatra” where Elizabeth Taylor played the famous queen of Egypt.

This game has 10 reels with 9 paylines and it includes free spins, wild reels, 3 jackpots, and an expanded pay mode.

Special Features

The first feature to highlight is the unique layout of the reels as your attention is directed to the first 3x3 reels on the left-hand side and if you land a win then the highlighted section will move on to cover reels 3, 4, and 5. If you are lucky enough to land another win then you will move on to reels 5, 6, and 7. Keep progressing all the way up to reel 10 and you will get the chance to win the minor, major, or grand jackpot.

If your luck is really in and you manage to nab the Grand Jackpot then you will be treated to a fantastic 20,000X your original bet! If you manage to cover all 3 active reels with the same symbols or mixed symbols then you will be awarded an Expanded Pay payout which is considerably a lot more than a normal payout. It is also worth highlighting that any win or Expanded Pay will advance the Speed Spins Active Reels two reels to the right and this may increase the Speeds Spins Multiplier up to 5X. The Multiplier count can be seen in a small red box at the top of any active reels.

The Wild symbol is illustrated by the word “Wild” with an orange background. It substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus symbol and it only appears on reels 2, 4, 6, and 8.

The Bonus symbol is denoted by a golden Scarab and if you land 3 or more of these symbols then you will activate the Free Spin Bonus feature. As per usual, the more of these symbols you land on the reels, the more spins you will receive. 3 Bonus symbols will give you 8 free spins but if you manage to land 6 or more of these symbols then you will be awarded an excellent 50X multiplier as well as 30 free spins. A neat feature of this bonus game is that 2 to 4 reels will randomly fill up with Wild symbols on every spin but only on reels 2, 4, 6, or 8. This can further increase your chances of a nice payout and that is not all as the Free Spin Bonus also guarantees a minimum of 10X your total bet so you will be smiling either way when you trigger this feature!

Theme and Graphics

The graphics in this slot are excellent and full of detail with a distinctive Egyptian flavour. The backdrop of the game is a couple of Pyramids with a sun setting in the distance creating a wonderful dusky orange-lit sky. Symbols consist of dogs, cats, crooks, ankhs, and of course Cleopatra who is the highest paying symbol in the game.

The animations are nice as symbols come alive when a winning combination is formed on the reels. The music is very Arabic and full of harps and cymbals. It really suits the theme of the game down to the ground.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Our Verdict on Lady of Egypt

Lady of Egypt is made by WMS and although it looks quite complicated to play, it is actually really easy to play. The Free Spins game is the main attraction of this slot and it offers some lucrative payouts, especially with Wilds added randomly on each free spin. I also liked how there are 3 different jackpots to aim for although it might take you some time to reach reel 10 as the game is of medium variance.
