Valley Of The Scarab Slot’s 100 Paylines
It is the 100 paylines offered in the Valley Of The Scarab online video slot game that sets it apart from other Amaya Gaming titles with similar Egyptian themes. Bets can also be varied from 0.01 to 10.00 per line, meaning that with all 100 paylines active, high rollers can bet up to 100,000 coins per spin, in other words $1000.00, if playing in US currency.
Valley Of The Scarab is focused, not surprisingly, on the scarab of the title. The scarab or dung beetle was important in Egyptian mythology, as it was believed a godly scarab carried the orb of the sun across the sky. The scarab was also the god that ferried the souls of dead kings and queens to their immortal lives in the underworld, and the symbols on Valley Of The Scarab’s five reels relate to royalty and funerary customs.
Exquisite Design and Glowing Colours
Luxurious colours and finely rendered artwork make Valley Of The Scarab a good-looking slot. Encased in a frame of gold and jewels, the reels have a translucent backing of painted wall strips and hieroglyphics. The frame floats above the peaceful blue Nile, with a number of pyramids visible on the far bank. Five poker values, the 10 to A, are designed as metallic symbols in red, blue, yellow, orange and purple. 10s, Js and Qs win matching prizes, as do the Ks and As. For five of a kind, these prizes are 100 and 125 credits, respectively.
Four themed symbols are also paired in prize values. Three sarcophagi and the Egyptian Book of the Dead win up to 200 credits, and the cat and the Horus pendant win 10, 50 or 250 credits for three, four or five identical matches on a payline, starting at Reel 1.
King, Queen and Scarab Wild Pay Best
Valley Of The Scarab’s two high-value symbols are the Queen and King of Egypt, each winning 25, 100 or 500 credits for three, four or five of a kind.
A beautiful gold scarab decked with rainbow jewels serves as the Valley Of The Scarab Wild, appearing on any reel, sometime stacked, to replace any payline symbols and create more wins. When the Wild forms its own matches from Reel 1, it pays the game’s top payline prizes: 30, 250 or 750 credits. If 20 scarabs fill all the reel windows on a spin, all 100 paylines win and the prize is multiplied by X5, for a total prize of 375,000X the line bet.
Anubis Scatter Activates Bonus Round
The jackal-headed god Anubis, guardian of the afterlife, does duty as the Scatter in Valley Of The Scarab. If it comes up at the same time anywhere on Reels 1, 3 and 5, it triggers a bonus round of 7 free spins, and pays the player an entry win of 2X the total spin bet. Each win in the free spins round receives a randomly determined multiplier, between X2 and X8. Free spins can be retriggered during bonus rounds, although the entry win isn’t, up to a maximum of 98 spins per round.
