I've been very upfront about how much I hate when a slot developer comes up with a game whose theme is something we've seen multiple times before. This extends from ancient China, witches, and Egypt. These games draw my ire because they all look alike, and oftentimes you cannot tell the difference between them. Because of this, I feel that it's important that I call out a game that is based on the same subject matter that does things differently. This is what I see with Evoplay's Rise of Horus slot, which looks different and has some excellent features. If you're looking for an Ancient Egypt slot to try, this one has to be on the list.
The game is a 5 reel video slot with 243 ways to win, which can expand up to 16,807. The game is set in front of a temple and has two Horus statues standing on each side of the reels. The game's icons include low-paying hieroglyphics such as a bird, falcon, cat, lion, and snake alongside higher-paying icons like a cat god, eagle god, lion god, and Horus (I don't know the names of the other gods, sorry!). There is also an eye hieroglyph and a scarab, which serve as a wild and scatter symbol alike.
The game's features include scatters, wilds, free spins, stacked symbols, and those expanded ways to win. The game does have a built-in mobile mode, which looks great on your smaller screen. The slot looks nice no matter where you go, and the features play out nicely. Rise of Horus' layout and features give the game a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 96%, which is about average for what we see from other online slot developers.
I enjoyed my time with Rise of Horus, and found the game to be quite a bit of fun. The game's bonus features hit quite a bit, and I scored some very impressive wins as a result. I think what really sells this game for me is that it's not a cookie-cutter effort. Is this the best slot in the world? No, but it is one that I'd put high up on my list in terms of being a decent Egypt-themed game.
