Ancient Egypt seems to be the gold mine for slot ideas as NoLimit City follows its beloved title Tomb of Nefertiti with Tomb of Akhenaten. The slot successfully brings new features to the table, distinguishing itself from its predecessor while creating a slot experience that has many layers to peel off.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Tomb of Akhenaten is a 3x5 slot with 243 - 3,125 paylines, high volatility and a 96.9% RTP. On the reels are low-paying symbols and different Egyptian gods as high-paying ones. Ra, the god of the sun, pays 5x the bet for a full line. Since pyramids are famous for containing secret treasures, the slot has up to 26,261x the stake as its max win!
In the base game, every win will trigger the Sticky Win Spins which grants a respin with an added row to the layout. This increases the paylines up to 1,024. Another row can be added if players find a subsequent win, making the number of win ways 3,125. While all these happen, there’s a chance that random symbols turn into Wilds. In the third respin, you may find Pyramid Wilds on the screen, which turn the reels they’re in into wilds. After the 3rd respin, the game returns to its regular patterns.
Landing 3+ Scatters will trigger the Akhenaten Spins (8 free spins for 3 Scatters, while each extra scatters gets you 2 more spins). The bonus round also uses the Sticky Win Spins as its core gameplay, but it adds a total win multiplier into the equation. This multiplier starts at 1x and increases by +1 for each Sticky Wild Spin. Finally, every Scatter in the Akhenaten Spins gives players 1 extra spin.
Tomb of Akhenaten doesn’t do much to make its thematic elements stand out, but it more than compensates for that with a banger gameplay. The Sticky Wild Spins activate after every single win, so the base game is almost never boring as one spin can always escalate to the highest of prizes: the Pyramid Wilds. And similarly to many titles from NoLimit City, the game has 2 specific Bonus Buy options (8 or 12 spins), which is wonderful for players who like bonuses like I do
