Wild Mummy Casino Game
This Amaya slot looks different to the many Ancient Egypt titles out there. The reels are small relative to the screen, with a distinctive simple and almost comic-book style to them.
They are set in what looks like the ruin of a temple, with a bright statue of Ramesses to the right hand side.
Sound and visual effects will quickly alert you to the fact that this is not the newest of slots – though the game play is solid and the free spins bonus game can come with some generous multipliers.
How to Win on the Wild Mummy Slot
A quick note that the pay table will show wins for the number of coins you are betting. If you are betting the maximum 10 coins the top win of 50,000 coins will look huge! The wins below are based on 1 coin per line.
The title / logo symbol with a comic looking Mummy with the word wild on it is the best paying symbol. This will get you 5000 coins for lining up 5 on any one of the 20 win lines. 4 still pays more than any of the other symbols at 1000 coins with 100 for 3 and 15 for 2. When it substitutes for other symbols this wild will double the amount on the pay table.
Regular symbols have a grey background (while the playing card ‘filler’ symbols have a tan colored stone background). These are topped by a Sphinx symbol, which looks like a lion. This worth 300 coins for 5 and will pay prizes all the way down to 2 of a kind from the left. A golden bird comes next at 250 coins for all 5, with an Egyptian and snake following this. Playing card symbols ace down to 10 are the remaining regular symbols on the reels.
Scatter symbols on Wild Mummy have an element of humor. These are a bright golden mask with a very cheesy toothy grin. If you land 5 of them anywhere on the reels, this is worth 200 times your total bet for that spin. There are smaller payouts of 15x your bet for 4, 2x for 3 and 1x for just 2.
Wild Mummy Free Spins Bonus Game
A pyramid with the word ‘bonus’ is the last symbol on the reels, this only has a single role – to trigger the 2 part free spins bonus round.
The first part of this involves picking torches and hieroglyphics from the walls of a tomb. There are 6 flickering torches around the outside, which will award a number of free spins from 4 to 7. You then choose one of the 6 hieroglyphics, which award a multiplier for your wins up to 6x.
Next you go back to the main screen and the game will quickly run through your free spins. A bright box appears in the middle of the reels after each spin to show you how many coins you have won. You can retrigger the free spins with 3+ pyramids. Keep in mind that the jackpot is not multiplied.
Design and Setup of Wild Mummy
The unique look of this game goes a long way to disguising the fact that it is not the most recent of titles in the Amaya portfolio. Having more detail around the reels and making the symbols look like they are part of a temple wall does work very well. There are some instructions about the wild symbols and bonus round to the left of the reels, while hieroglyphics and that vivid statue of Ramesses can be found on the right.
Like on many older slots, the sound has not been tied in with the theme. Instead this is humming and bleeping which was originally designed to recreate the feel of live slot games. There is also very little in the way of animation on Wild Mummy – only the flickering torches in the free spins game caught my eye.
If you are familiar with Amaya slots you will have seen the setup of this game many times before. The 20 win lines are fixed and you get to play up to 10 coins per line from 1c per coin and up. This makes the smallest spin amount just 20c. As ever there is a bet max button to help you choose to play all 10 coins – as well as an auto play option.
Despite being older and only having a single free spins game feature – I enjoyed this Ancient Egypt themed title. The look and feel are unique, and the game is fast too. That free spins game is certainly enhanced if you are lucky enough to hit the 6x multiplier.
