Being the ancient Egyptian god of the afterlife and lost souls, Red Tiger Gaming explores one of the oldest gods of Egyptian mythology in Vault of Anubis. His chamber holds a golden treasure of up to 5,469x bet and features that include Super Symbols, Generous Gods and Vault Spins.
The Chamber of Anubis
Vault of Anubis teleports you back a few thousand years to Ancient Egypt, home to the pyramids and Nile River. Here, you find yourself in a colourfully illustrated dark chamber guarded by two statues with wolf heads dedicated to the god Anubis. The slot glows red by the flickering flames illuminating it.
The reels consist of a 7×6 (reels/rows) playing area that is home to the following paying symbols: Anubis headdress, the Eye of Horus, crook and flail, and scarab beetle which is a symbol of rebirth. There are also four additional symbols, which represent card suits, at the lower end. Egyptian music does an excellent job of capturing and reinforcing the magic of this age.
Cascading & Cluster Pays
The game design uses cascading mechanics instead of the typical spinning reels, which makes the game feel a little more dramatic. When a winning cluster of 5+ identical symbols is created, the symbols involved explode, giving rise to an avalanche where new symbols fall to replace the spaces. It can continue in a loop, provided that new winning clusters are created.
Vault of Anubis Super Symbols
The first 4 symbols we mentioned (high wins) can appear on the reels as 2×2 or 3×3 sized super symbols. You can get more than one instance on any random spin, which creates the opportunity for more and bigger wins.
The giant idols standing on either side of the reels can award wilds in random positions of the reels.
Vault Spins + Win Multiplier
Vault Spins symbols can appear anywhere on the playing area. Landing them in sets of 4+ will unlock the Vault Spins feature with an increasing win multiplier. The win multiplier increases by 1 for every win during the Vault Spins. Furthermore, a +Spin symbol can award up to 8 bonus spins.
Vault of Anubis Closing Thoughts
Vault of Anubis slot has an RTP of 94.7% and allows for bets of 0.10 to 40. Released in March 2020, the game has high volatility, meaning you may need a higher bankroll. It is optimised for mobile (Android/iOS) or desktop (HTML 5).
The slot is visually stunning and exceptionally pleasing, perhaps even haunting, on the ears. It comes with a generous portion of features that drop often enough to keep things exciting. Despite this, we still found it exceptionally difficult to collect wins that one might expect from a high volatility slot.
Raiding Anubis’ vault is not for the faint of heart, so if you’re ready to begin, then we’re prepared to point you in the right direction.
