How to play
Merkur's Fire of Egypt is a great one for beginners or even for those who simply don't have the time to familiarise themselves with complex styles of gameplay. It's very simple and easy to pick up for all types of gamers. The layout consists of just four reels and 25 paylines. Whilst the standard number is five reels, the removal of one of them actually just means you need to get fewer symbols for the maximum payouts!
In fact, the RTP of this game is 96.64 per cent, which is slightly higher than the average game nowadays. Whilst the paylines are fixed - meaning you'll have to play with all 25 - you can adjust the stake to bet as low as £0.05 up to the maximum bet of £100 per spin. This effectively means the game is ready for you, no matter what sort of player you are!
The symbols have been plucked straight from Ancient Egypt... well, most of them, anyway. The lower-paying symbols are the classic card deck (9 to A) found in most slots nowadays, but the higher-paying symbols include the crook and flail, which eventually became the symbols for the pharaohs' rule and authority over their kingdom. These are joined by a fan and a striking side profile of Queen Nefertiti.
The highest-paying symbol on the board is the pharaoh himself, who will offer a max bet payout of 20,000 coins when you collect four of him on a winning payline. There are no special symbols in the form of wilds or scatters to mention in this basic game, but one added bonus that the developer has slipped in is the 2x payout if you manage to collect an entire screen of lower-paying symbols.
This is a clever way of increasing their popularity. After all, nobody really jumps for joy when they see lower-paying symbols landing on their first reel after a spin. That could all change with this added feature!
As with many other free slots on our site, there will be a gamble option presented to the player after every winning spin. This option does not appear to be available on the max bet, though we're not quite sure what the cut-off limit is when winning.
There will be two gamble options provided to offer you the choice between the classic red-or-black game or the ladder game, where the rules aren't entirely clear but you're able to ascend or descend a ladder, which will in turn double or half your winnings until you reach the top or the bottom... or collect your winnings! If you're feeling torn, you can also choose the option to collect half your winnings and continue gambling with the rest!
