What's to find there? Stakers has got you covered. We spent almost two hours with this game, and can give you the low down on what makes it special.
The game starts off with an awesome intro depicting King Tut with his sword. Then when that's done, you are transported to the game screen. Here you have five reels and four rows. Tut stands next to the reels with a scythe in his hand.
Immediately, we were given two hieroglyphics to start. They filled up two of the five holes above the third reel. As we played the game, more spots above other reels were filled whenever a wild card appeared. It would randomly pick a hieroglyphic. If that hieroglyphic belonged to the reel it landed, on you got that icon. If – as happened most of the time – it didn't match, then nothing happened.
We noticed that the first and last reels had three spots for hieroglyphics, the second and fourth had four spots, and the central reel had five spots. Therefore, giving you two on the central reel was clutch – it turned it into a reel where you only needed three instead of the usual five to complete it.
While playing, it quickly became apparent that wild cards are the key to this game. There doesn't appear to be any scatter icons, so the wilds are what you need to focus on.
When two wilds hit the screen, one of them becomes the size of an entire reel and turns into a cyclone. Then it sucks the other wild over to it, reel by reel. Each time it moves a reel, it gives out free spins.
The game tells you it's your “last chance” right before your last free spin. On that last spin, it spits the wild or wilds back out onto the game grid to random spots. This seems to always result in a win. We won 40.89 credits on one of these twister spins alone. The lowest win we got from the twister was 15.95 credits. After one of these “Super Big Wins,” an icon comes out on the screen, giving you the chance to brag about it on social media.
During the twister moments, every time you get a new wild card, sand is put in a holder on the right. After three wilds, this holder fills up and every win you get after that is multiplied by two. It continues to fill up, so we expect you could get it to triple – though we never got that far.
We did notice that wins without using a wild card were very rare. That said, this was made up for by the huge wins we received when we were able to use two wilds to bring out the twister. This makes the wild by far the most important icon in the game.
Overall, this high volatility won't be for everyone. For us, it added to the excitement. We were down and then suddenly we were way up. The type of action you are looking for is obviously up to you.
The ultimate goal seems to be to get one wild in the first reel and your second wild in the fifth reel. That gives you the largest number of free spins while the twister is sucking at that second wild. And with free spins, you get very big wins. What sucks is when you get one wild and then a wild right next to it. That results in only two free spins.
All in all, it's a great, action-packed game that brought us back to Egypt and gave us some real excitement with the twister. It's not a short-term game. It's a time investment, but one we thought was completely worth it.
