Siberian Storm Slots by IGT

Dipping into their creative haversack, the design team at WMS has picked a tried and true thematic topic, but has added a play twist that is completely new to the genre. For WMS’S Lady of Egypt slot machine, the team has selected a unique way to display the standard 3 X 3 play field.

Indeed, although we will speak to the development below at depth, suffice it to say most players will find the improvement very exciting.

Borrowing heavily from the story of ancient Egypt’s most famous lady, Cleopatra, this online slot game pays homage to the Lady of Egypt. The last reigning monarch of the Egyptian Ptolemaic Dynasty, Cleopatra’s story is sheathed in tales of sumptuousness, erotica, and exotic living.

To capture this litany of opulence, WMS designers have taken the time to cast each of the game’s icons with a gentle golden glow that hints at the majesty of those icons of ancient Egypt.

Additionally, against a somewhat minimalistic playing field, the player casts his luck against the backdrop of the setting sun as it prepares to touch the tips of the pyramids while casting a golden glow across the desert sands .

Playing Lady of Egypt by WMS

First, a look at the tiles that players are bound to experience while playing the game. Needless to say, traditional Egyptian themes predominate and include:

Specialized icons bring the game home when it comes to the exciting, fast moving play and big wins, so players should also keep an eye out for the following specialized winning opportunities:

The wild icon appears only on reels 2, 4, 6, and 8, and it substitutes for all available symbols with the exception of the scatter bonus icon. These wilds also serve to connect these symbols into winning combination for even higher money payouts.

Hitting three of the golden scarabs at the same time unleash the free spin portion of the game. With an overall 96.05% RTP, you will feel as if you are the Queen of Egypt with the amount of money you can earn when the full playing field begins to open up.

A Layout as Unique as the Pyramids

As promised, let’s take a closer look at the expanding word of ancient Egypt as seen through the prism of WMS’s design team’s expanding playing grid.

When you first see Lady of Egypt, you might find that the layout looks a little weird. The game advertises only nine lines, but there are 10 reels that you’re able to play on, each of which shows three symbol positions.

Only three of the reels are active at any time, just like a traditional slot machine. You’ll be able to tell which reels are in play, as they are magnified and bordered so that you can tell exactly where the action is unfolding.

But the play doesn’t have to stay there. Every time you score a win, you’ll earn a free spin in which the play area will start moving to the right. Compile enough wins together, and you’ll start to see big multipliers added to you spins. Get to the end of the line, and you’ll enjoy multipliers that are as big as 100x per prize.

In order to get the big money flowing, you will need to match three in a row of the same symbols. With plenty of potential icons to match, ranging from poker ranks such as jacks, queens and kings to more traditional Egyptian fare like ankhs, dogs, and (of course), Cleopatra herself. There’s also a wild symbol that can be used to connect these symbols and form more winning combinations.
