Horus is known for being one of the most ancient Egyptian deities, being known as the god of kingship and the sky. Based on that kind of reputation, it makes sense that different forms of entertainment would be interested in the prospect of immortalising him in various forms of entertainment.
Today, we’re going to see if the Treasure of Horus slot game by Iron Dog does a good job of accomplishing that goal.
As is the case with most Egyptian themed slots, you largely know what you’re going to get with the Treasure of Horus slot game. The layout is pretty familiar with a 5×3 reel setup, and there are 20 paylines to work your way through from left to right.
The standard playcards are in operation for this slot as you’d expect, but there are also some themed symbols to enjoy such as scarabs, cats, ankhs and more.
The return to player (RTP) percentage can either be viewed as an overwhelming distraction or as the perfect guiding light, depending on how much information you want to have heading into your gaming experience. The same is true for the Treasure of Horus slot game with the reported RTP coming in at 95.93%, and when compared with the rest of the industry, we’d suggest that leaves it just below average. With medium to high volatility, though, you should probably expect the unexpected with regards to payouts.
You don’t have to be made of money to get started either with a minimum stake of 20p and with potential winnings of 2,562x your initial stake, there are plenty of reasons to get excited.
From the palm trees to the slick design work on the symbols, we like how colourful this slot is – probably because that’s not always the trend with Egyptian slots. Plus, when it takes on a different tone for new features, it maintains that eerie sense of occasion and drama.
In terms of the bonuses, the Free Spin feature is one to keep an eye out for. If you want to trigger it you’ll need to land on the dog god Anubis symbol on the middle reel. From there you’ll head into the Anubis chamber and receive six free spins, with the goddess Weret adding six more if you land her on the middle reel too.
The Horus symbol itself takes you through to the final level, but in a general sense, you want to watch for the wilds and scatters – as they hold the keys to success.
The Treasure of Horus slot game sticks to the status quo that we’re so used to seeing with a lot of Egyptian slots, but it does feel a bit more positive and enjoyable than others. Whether that’s due to the design or the steady stream of potential winnings on the table, it’s clear to see that Iron Dog has put a lot of thought and effort into this.
