Blueprint Gaming’s top-performing Eye of Horus slot machine has received multiple upgrades since its debut in 2016. But although the games are somewhat similar in terms of the Ancient Egypt storyline, there is always an extra in each new release. That’s what fans of this slot machine should expect from the newly released Eye of Horus The Golden Tablet Megaways.
Being a Megaways slot, the game starts on a 6×2 grid, with the rows expanding to 5. This allows the game to deliver up to 15,625 winning ways on adjacent reels. Remember, you must line up the winning icons from the leftmost reel.
Speaking of matching winning symbols, players must find at least three similar icons on adjacent reels to receive a payout. As expected, the J-A playing card icons are the low-value symbols, rewarding you with up to 0.4x the bet for six of a kind. The high-value icons, including the bird, scarab, jackal, flower, and eye of Horus, join these symbols. They can reward you with up to 20x the stake, with players only needing two to receive a payout with the highest-paying icon.
Meanwhile, the falcon-headed god is the game’s wild symbol, substituting all paying icons bar the scatter when it lands on the reels. The wild icons can only appear on reels 2 to 5, expanding to cover the reel and helping gamers form even more lucrative winning combinations.
As the action continues to heat up, you can land 3+ scatter icons on the reels to win 12 free spins. But that’s not all. The game rewards an instant win multiplier, depending on the number of bonus symbols you collect.
Below is how the game awards players the multipliers:
- 3 triggering scatters come with a 2x multiplier
- 4 triggering scatters will activate a 5x multiplier
- 5 activating scatters will come with a 10x multiplier
- 6 triggering scatters will unlock a 20x multiplier
In addition, the scatters can activate the Upgrading Symbol mechanic, where the Ancient Egypt god will transform the highest-paying icon on the view into the game’s premium symbol. And don’t forget that landing a wild symbol during the bonus games will trigger up to seven respins.
Overall, the game’s already compelling elements are enhanced by the addition of the Megaways mechanic. Players will likely be impressed by the Upgrading Symbol mechanic, which can help them conjure up unreal winning possibilities.
Jo Purvis, Blueprint Gaming’s Director of Key Accounts and Marketing UK, commented: “Eye of Horus has performed wonderfully well for us and our operator partners for many years now so it certainly deserves another outing. This latest iteration takes everything that made the original great and adds new features, topped off with Megaways, making this potentially one of the best of the series.”
