A storm is brewing up around the sandy lands of Egypt. The Anubis is restless and displeased, so we need to stand against a god to get the treasures we seek. This is the second “modern” Ancient Egyptian slot from Swintt, the first one being the Wild Pharaoh, which was a fairly well-made game. We feel like we have made enough remarks about this theme, so we won’t get into that now. Storm of Egypt isn’t the typical “book of” slot, instead, it uses some other popular and also some not too common mechanisms and features.
Swintt have been putting in the work. We have seen a bunch of new releases with a good mix of themes. Perhaps, it’s a bit of a shame to return back to Egypt so fast, but in between both titles there have been 9 new games, so it’s not too bad. Storm of Egypt is a 5 reel slot that comes with 40 paylines. It may be another Ancient Egyptian slot, but it comes with a unique personality, which distinguishes it from the general wolf pack. A high focus is placed on Wild symbols, so let’s see the best ways to use them.

Storm of Egypt Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
Storm of Egypt has an interesting presentation. The music especially makes it stand out. It sounds like a piece of traditional Egyptian music, which has been remixed into a fast-paced club version. Who knows, perhaps you will hear this beat in your local club one day. Other than that, we see the dusty sands, which are kicked up by the wind. There is also an ancient statue on the left side, to add that touch of authenticity. You will also spot a mysteriously green 4th row on the top, but we will get into that a bit later. Generally, the Storm of Egypt slot runs well, with no visible flaws.
Storm of Egypt comes with 11 regular symbols, plus the wild. Not to be too critical, but symbols look quite bland. Low symbols are 9 – A, which come in different colours, but a shared font style. These symbols don’t really fit in with the Egyptian setting that much, they look more like glowing lights inside clubs. Considering the music, perhaps this was the idea. High-value symbols on the other hand make more sense. These symbols are a pyramid, ankh, tome, scarab and a statue of a cat, which were very sacred back then. Equally valuable is the Wild symbol, which the Anubis himself.
Here comes the interesting part. Storm of Egypt, just like Wild Pharaoh doesn’t impress with the RTP. We get a low 94%, which is well below the average. But as always, this doesn’t define the whole game. Storm of Egypt is also a high volatility slot and it can produce wins up to 2,000x. Storm of Egypt is a bit of a bonus hunt game, but it is also possible to score decent wins during the main game. The bet range is slightly strange. It goes from 0.40 – 100, which is fine, but the next bet after 0.80 is 4, which could limit some betting strategies.
Let’s address the elephant in the room. The 4th green row up above displays a new set of symbols on each spin. If one of the symbols matches with a symbol of the corresponding reel then this symbol will turn into a Wild. This wild symbol will then expand to cover the whole reel. I don’t believe there is a single person that dislikes expanding wilds, so things are already looking well.
If you manage to activate 3, 4 or even 5 wild reels at once, an additional 5, 10 or 15 Free Games are triggered respectively. During this bonus, everything works the same way as before, but now each symbol on the top row carries an additional multiplier, which multiplies the total win, whenever you manage to expend the matching wild. Also, for each expanding wild, Storm of Egypt awards +1 respin.
Storm of Egypt is an odd one. It seems like a regular Egyptian slot, but then again it feels much different to what we usually get. We believe it could be because of the interesting audio arrangement. Looking at the gameplay and payouts, it’s not the most generous slot, but Anubis does hide some desirable treasures. More or less, everything revolves around expanding wilds, so matching that top row with the game reels is the most important aspect.
