Gems of Egypt: King of the Valley


Gems of Egypt: King of the Valley

This new video slot on Bluberi’s Novus Series b49 portrait cabinet features two different ways to trigger free spins, and a collecting feature that can lead to one of five progressive jackpots.

The base game is a five-reel, 50-line video slot. “Spins” symbols on the three middle reels trigger eight free spins. Randomly, two of the symbols, on reels 2 and 3, can also trigger the eight free spins.

During free spins, the top symbol of the game, a sparkling scarab, reveals gems when landing, which correspond to the five progressives. Matching three of the gems during the free-spin round wins the corresponding jackpot, which means more than one jackpot can be one in a free-spin session.

There also is a Mystery Wild feature during the primary game. Randomly, the reel array will fill with only high-paying symbols, and up to nine extra wild symbols can appear on the center reels, for huge credit wins.
