Enter the Temple of Luxor slot, where not everything is as it seems and you get a huge 100 paylines.
You know how when you look at a video slot, and you think ‘wow, I’m totally going to love this’?
And then you play, and the disappointment can make you dislike the game? That’s sorta what might happen to you when you play on this Temple of Luxor slot game.
Because when you see a classic Egyptian theme, you automatically assume you’re going to get huge wins. Just look at casino games like the Cleopatra MegaJackpots slot, or even something more recent like Hidden by Elk gaming.
Which brings us to the disappointment part of this Genesis Temple of Luxor slot review, and why you should give it a shot.
Mostly, if nothing else, because it tries to do something different from most other mobile slot, even if the wins during the base game barely cover your bet.
You start with, essentially, playing on two 50 paylines games at once – hence 100 paylines.
It’s by far easier to follow than the colossal reels of WMS fame like the Kiss slot, but suffers a little bit of the same problem: namely on mobile the symbols and reels feel small.
This Temple of Luxor video slot is definitely better suited for Android tablets and iPads than smaller screens.
That’s when things get interesting, because when you trigger the Temple of Luxor bonus games, that central column turns into a wild reel.
You are basically connecting both sets of games, turning this into an 11 reel slot. You now have the potential to get 11 symbol wins, which pay both ways and you get 4 wild reels on each spin.
It sounds exciting, but the reality is a little more drab, as we seldom walked away with anything more than 5x to 10x our bet.
Seldom, but not impossible.
We managed to re-trigger the bonus games, playing over 50 free spins, and winning over 150 times our bet.
How? Because all the symbols come stacked, and with those 4 wild reels, one spin literally gets you huge wins.
It’s not easy, and you have to be patient, but as Genesis slot games go, this is easily one of their most innovative – next to the Machine Gun Unicorn slot, of course.

Double Reel Play: The 5x4 reels on the left and side of the column pay from left to right, whilst the 5x4 reels on the right hand side pay from right to left.
Making it easier to follow the wins.
Stacked Symbols: All symbols can, and usually do, come stacked across all the reels.
Wild: The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, except for bonus.
Bonus and Free Spins: You need to get 2 bonus symbols on the left set of reels, and another 2 bonus symbols and the right set of reels to trigger 10 free spins.
At this point the reels will open up and join, turning two slots into one massive 11 reel game that pays both ways - made famous by Starburst slot and perfected in games like Legend of The White Snake Lady.
All symbols now pay for 6, 7, 8,9 and 10 of a kind, and they pay generously.
Better yet, to help get you the wins, the centre reel is always fully wild, and three other random reels will also be chosen to be covered in wilds.
You technically 'only' have 50 paylines, instead of the 100 paylines of the base game, but because they pay both ways, you basically still have 100, especially as an 11 of a kind win will pay double.
You can re-trigger these Temple of Luxor free spins indefinitely.
We weren't really sold by this Temple of Luxor slot on mobile at first.
And yes, one huge blazing free spin round got us spinning around 360 degrees faster than you can say "Tutankhamun Curse".
So perhaps we are a little biased.
But this low variance, high hit rate Genesis game has a lot to offer, especially if you're bored of the standard 5x3 format video slots.
This is all about the double reels, and lasting long enough to catch the Temple of Luxor slot free spins.
Mostly you'll need to be a little careful with your wallet, but not half as much as with other Egyptian slots like Valley of the Gods by Yggdrasil gaming or or the Pyramid Quest game by NetEnt - which is a bonus as far as we are concerned.
