Ancient Egypt-themed slot games never get old, especially when they’re done by Quickspin. One of the developer's newest slots, Ark of Mystery, takes players on an Indiana Jones-like adventure, only the star of this treasure hunt is Anna, who is out to unlock the lost riches of the Pharaohs. The 2 main features of the slot are Wild Ark Respins and the Multiplier Boosters, which can lead to a maximum win of 6,509x your stake.
Ark of Mystery is a 5-reel, 3-row, 20-payline slot that’s playable on all devices. Bets range from €0.20 to €100 and the RTP is 96.53%.
Symbols include hieroglyphic-style royals (A, K, Q, J and 10), Eye of Horus, scarabs, ankhs, and the beautifully animated Anna, who awards 50x your stake when 5 land across a payline. The Ark is the wild and only appears on reels 2, 3, and 4, while a pyramid symbol acts as a Multiplier Booster and only appears on reel 5.
When a wild Ark lands on any of the middle 3 reels, the Wild Ark Respin feature is triggered. During this feature, all wilds lock in position and you are awarded a free respin. When each respin starts, the wild symbols expand to an open adjacent position on the same reel. You can continue to get respins as long as adjacent positions remain open, for a maximum of 6 respins with 3 fully wild reels.
Another sought-after feature is the Multiplier Booster, which is triggered when the pyramid symbol lands on reel 5. Each pyramid symbol increases the multiplier by 1, and you can use the respins to get a 22x multiplier applied to your winnings. In total, you can win up to 6,509x your original stake.
Yes, there are plenty of Ancient Egypt-themed slots out there, but Ark of Mystery is one of the better ones. Its intriguing, crisp graphics and soundtrack are perfectly on par with the theme, and its 2 main features provide plenty of medium to high variance action.
You can play Ark of Mystery at Quickspin casinos, online or on mobile.
