Ancient Egypt is one of the most overdone tropes when it comes to slot machines, sitting right alongside leprechauns, lucky sevens, bars, and bells as being used way too frequently. Nevertheless Nolimit City is giving us their take on the genre with their Tomb of Nefertiti slot, which puts us outside the legendary walls and gives us a chance to win big. Is the game groundbreaking? No, but it does have some interesting features that make it a worthy effort.
Tomb of Nefertiti is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that's set outside the tomb in the middle of the night, complete with sand blowing across the screen in the background. Symbols in the game include standard icons made to look like hieroglyphics such as 10, J, Q, K, A. High paying icons are a vase, a cat, a scarab, the god Anubis, and the god Horus. There's also a queen that serves as a bonus symbol, and an explorer that's the game's wild.
Features in the game include the above-mentioned wilds, scatters, free spins, linked reels, sticky wilds, and re-spins. The game has a win multiplier of up to 3x your wagered amount, which grows with additional re-spins. There's a Wild Raider feature that is set off randomly and can see up to 9 wilds randomly appearing on the middle three reels of the game. If the wild symbol looks familiar it is no doubt because, as the feature name suggests, it has been modelled on Lara Croft, star of the Tomb Raider series of video games. The biggest feature in the game is the Curse of Nefertiti, which sees the middle three reels sync up, providing the opportunity to generate some epic wins. The combination of the features and game layout gives the slot a theoretical return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.2%, which is about what you'd expect from a Nolimit City slot.
I will say that the game is pretty good, although not the best that I've seen from Nolimit City. The theme does bore me, but the re-spin feature is compelling, and the Curse of Nefertiti feature could score you some gigantic wins. If you want to play an Egypt slot, this is among the best. Even better, you can play the game on your smartphone or tablet as well.
