Eye of Horus

Eye of Horus

There are a few different online slot machines out there with the title, Eye of Horus. This release was launched by Blueprint Gaming in 2019 and is arguably one of the most authentic Ancient Egyptian-themed casino slots you are likely to come across. The game uses realistic-looking hieroglyphs, simple gameplay and an affordable wagering range to make its point. The slot also doles out a symbol upgrade bonus to add extra spice to the game. The slot was recently transformed into a MegaWays release by the same developer, though it isn’t much different to this original release. 

Eye of Horus only serves up 10 paylines across its 5 reels. That should prove to be enough to win on, though, as the Egyptian slot is a relatively low variance game. Expect an easy to handle wagering range, with affordable bets all around. Floor bets in Eye of Horus cost just 10p a turn, with ceiling bets capped at no higher than £100 a game. With a bit of fortune and luck, players could hope to walk away from the slot with a non-progressive jackpot prize worth five-hundred times their total bet. The relatively low volatility game has a return to player rate of 96.31%.  

Special Features 

The original edition of Eye of Horus features a limited array of special features. The most prosperous symbol you can land on the reels is the Eye of Horus icon itself. However, wild symbols are arguably more useful. They appear as the falcon-headed god himself. These icons can appear anywhere on the video slot’s screen and can turn entire reels wild which they show up. 

Scatters cannot be replaced by wilds, but they can activate free spin rounds in the game, as well as dole out scattered cash prizes. Up to 50x a bet can be won via scatters, while the symbols can dish out as many as 12 free spins at once.   

Bonus Features 

Once Eye of Horus’ free games feature has been triggered, players will start with 12 free games. All wilds will expand during the free spin feature. Moreover, whenever a wild appears, it will upgrade the lowest paying icon in the game to the next tier. When a second wild lands, it will turn those symbols into the next most valuable on the paytable, and so on. Lastly, expanding wild symbols can also add further free spins to a player’s tally.  

Overview 

The original Eye of Horus slot is one of the most straightforward slots you will come across, even if its free spin/upgrade round initially sounds complicated. It is no surprise to see Blueprint Gaming transform this release into a MegaWays game.  

For those players who are interested, that release isn’t too much different from this game. It naturally features 6 reels and as many as 15,625 paylines, as well as the cascading symbols feature. Aside from those typical MegaWays features, though, the revamped edition of Eye of Horus is virtually no different than its predecessor.
