Secrets of Horus Slot

In terms of game play, this Ancient Egypt themed slot from Net Entertainment is solid – rather than unique or creative. The focus is the god Horus, who had the body of a man and the head of a bird.

At some points in Egyptian history, the Pharaoh was thought to be the earthly incarnation of Horus. Graphics and some small animations make this game stand out, with the scarab beetle in particular worth watching out for. The highlight is a free spins bonus game, where you’ll get tripled wins.

How to Win on Secrets of Horus

There are 20 win lines for this game, with a mix of symbols including a lot of birds as well as some Egyptian classics like the Eye of Ra and Sphinx.

Horus is a sinister head-shot of a bird looking right at you – with the word ‘Wild’ underneath. This symbol has a large 10,000-coin top prize for 5 on a line – with 2500 coins for 4 and paying all the way down to 2 of a kind. Not only does Horus substitute for any of the regular (non-scatter) symbols, it will double the prize listed when it creates a win with them. This becomes even more useful when you win with wilds during the free spins game, which has an additional 3x multiplier. When you do win with this symbol, an animation occurs where it removes the head-mask and shows a bald headed guy (presumably the Pharaoh).

Of the regular symbols, the eye of Ra is the best paying. 5 of these will get you 750 coins. Next comes an elaborately carved ring, and a pot with a lid like the head of a dog. Both of these are worth 500 coins for 5. A gold, red and blue bird, plus a scroll symbol are next at 250 – with more birds, a hand and the Sphinx making up the smaller wins.


Scarab Scatters and Free Spins

The best looking symbol by a long way is the colorful scarab beetle. When you win with this it will unfurl its wings as if it were mechanical. This is the scatter symbol, and has 2 linked roles in the game.

First of all, it pays out a prize based on the total number in view anywhere on the reels. The top prize here is 500x your total bet (10,000 coins if you are betting all 20 win lines). You’ll get 25x your total bet for 4, 5x for 3 and 2x that bet for just 2 anywhere in view.

This beetle also triggers the free spins bonus game. If you hit 3 or more scarabs, you’ll get 15 free spins – there are no additional spins for hitting 4 or 5 of them this time.

Other than a count-down of your spins below the reels, the bonus game plays in exactly the same way as the base game does. The big advantage here is that any wins you hit are tripled. This occurs after any 2x award from the Horus wilds have been applied.

Classic Ancient Egyptian Design

Other than the animations for the scarab beetle and the Horus wilds, the design is quite plain. The action takes place in a stone setting, with some hieroglyphics across the top and complex scarab beetle design at the bottom. Most of the symbols are simple (though nicely drawn). There is some ambient music as you play, which becomes more intensive (some chanting) during the free spins bonus game. The reels do stop with a satisfying thud.

There is plenty of flexibility in the setup of this slot before you play. The usual NetEnt options of auto-play and max bet are also offered. The default of 20 win-lines can be adjusted, and you can choose the right coin size and number of coins per line to suit your own bankroll. As usual there are options to adjust the sound and graphics quality too.


Overall Experience

If you enjoy solid Ancient Egypt slots which avoid fancy game play or gimmicks – then Secrets of Horus certainly fits the bill. In the crowded Ancient Egypt themed genre, this game does little to stand out. Only the scarab beetle graphic really caught my attention. The 10,000-coin top prize, which could be tripled if you hit it during the free spins game is sure to have some appeal.
