Welcome to the Dawn of Egypt slot game, where you’re invited into a temple that will have you believe in the true mystical power of pyramids.
We love Ancient Egyptians slots that are bright, colourful, and make you feel like you are sitting in a modern-day temple – as if you took a time machine and are now walking into one of the most famous civilizations of all time.
Even the gods are realistic enough that they might just be looking straight at you, With Bast and Horus standing tall as the two highest paying symbols.
Honestly, this 5 reels and 10 payline Dawn of Egypt slot is beautiful. You cannot fault the theme.
The way the Dawn of Egypt slot game works is that 3 scatter symbols will trigger anything from 3 to 20 free spins.
On every spin, any one of the high paying symbols will be chosen to upgrade. So, for example, if Bast is upgraded, The Snake, the Ank and the Lotus will all be upgraded to Bast. But if the Ank is updated, only the Snake becomes an Ank.
It simply means that in every spin you get richer reels and more high paying symbols. Obviously you want Horus to be picked, as then all high paying symbols are Horus symbols, which is beautiful to watch.
What’s even better is that you may catch two scatters during the free spins, and trigger free spins within the free spin bonus. During this second-tier bonus, you get “stuck” with whichever symbol had been upgraded in that spin. Fingers crossed it’s Horus.
This isn’t the first time that Play’n GO has hidden a bonus within a bonus – if you like this you’ll love the Legacy of Egypt slot machine which feel similar – though with multipliers instead of symbol upgrades.
The reason they do this is that they want to give you a big top win of 5,000x your bet, but keep the base game a little more interesting.
In short, this is a medium to high variance game that promises that the only big win won’t be found ONLY in the free spins within free spins. You can, technically, hit that big win in the normal Dawn of Egypt free spin, which is good news as the Pyramid spins are much harder to find.
A really good fun game that gives you hope to catch more than just a couple of loose coins under the sarcophagus.

Wild: The scarab is the wild symbol and will replace any other symbol in order to create a win.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3 or more Pyramid relic symbols trigger the free spins bonus. First, you'll spin the Wheel of the Gods to decide how many spins you've won: somewhere between 3 and 20 free spins.
Then on every spin, one of the high paying symbols will be upgraded to the next symbol on the paytable.
So the Ank will turn the lotus flower into other Ank symbols. The scorpion will turn the Ank and the Lotus symbols into scorpions. The snake will turn the scorpion, the Ank and the Lotus symbols into snake symbols.
You also get the Red Pyramid spin scatter/wild symbol. It acts as a scatter and a wild.
Pyramid Spins: During the free spins, 2 or more Red Pyramid scatter wilds will trigger up to 20 Pyramid spins. These spins within spins will be played with whatever upgrade of symbols was triggered.
You can potentially play this with high paying symbols into Horus symbols and end up with 5,000x your bet max win.
Dawn of Egypt slot is a strange creature that may seem like you have to work hard to get results, but you'll be surprised by how the free spins come often, even if the Pyramid spins don't.
But that's ok because it's still fun to watch those symbols upgrade during the free spin, and the random feel to it gives it an edge that is truly exciting.
Is this Play'n GO mobile slot a little frustrating? Sure. It's a mid to high variance volatile slot, so you know that those pyramid spins hide the real big wins.
But the good news is that you get more little wins whilst you wait, making this a little more even-handed to play than the likes of Doom of Egypt game or the Coins of Egypt video slot.
