Professor Taylor is an Egyptologist in search of treasure. With the help of his nephew, Benjamin, we follow him into Ancient Egypt. The Great Pyramid of Giza is our setting as we help the team to find the golden top-stones. The game maker has graphically outdone itself in terms of the visuals and you can all but feel the Saharan dust on your skin as you listen to a mesmerising Egyptian soundtrack.
Read the symbols
Symbolism and the ability to read ancient scrolls come in handy if you have an adventurous spirit and want to find what is hidden. You will find the traditional 10, J, Q and K playing cards alongside themed symbols that include the head of the sphinx, a camel head, a magnifying glass, and depictions of Professor Taylor and young Benjamin. What you are really after is the wild symbols, which can take the place of any other symbol except the scatter.
In this game of chance, you will find no less than two features. Let’s start with Flashback Respins, which is indiscriminately activated on a base game spin. Suddenly, it will appear as if the clouds in the sky have taken on a different form and you will get a fleeting glance of Egypt during ancient times. The benefit of this is the three free respins on offer. This all happens while the sticky wild symbols cover between one and three of the central reels.
The reel reward
The Treasure Room Free Spins Feature is most certainly the biggest treasure of all and comes into play when you spin no less than three magnifying glass scatters in any position on the reels. Five free spins will come your way and an existing symbol is selected to turn into a magnifying symbol. Before your very eyes, a two by two large magnified square of the randomly chosen symbol will appear.
The rest of the symbols will vanish to give you a second symbol drop. If you are lucky enough, this will cause the expanding symbol to land and you will be awarded more two by two squares. You will want to keep your eyes peeled for the magnifying glass; each time it appears, you get a free spin.
The higher the value of the symbol, the bigger your win. Despite its traditional layout, the game is very rewarding during the initial stages and takes a step up with the Flashback Respins and the Treasure Room Free Spins. The convenience of playing it on desktop, mobile or tablet means that you will never have to lose out on the treasures the game has to offer.
