Eye of Horus Megaways Slot Review
Eye of Horus Megaways is the Megaways version of the famous Eye of Horus video slot machine game from Reel Time Gaming. Blueprint Gaming already did a Megaways sauce over a well-known Reel Time Gaming slot with Fishin Frenzy Megaways and was quite successful with that. It is therefore not surprising that they follow the same route with Eye of Horus. With one new release they immediately address two sets of players: Eye of Horus fans and Megaways slots fans. And an Egyptian mythological theme always works well.
Best Megaways Casinos 2020
At Eye of Horus everything revolves around the expanding wilds (the Horus symbols). The hits during the basic game spread out over the entire roll, which means you can grab big payouts. During the free spins, the wilds still provide all kinds of juicy extras, but we will tell you all about it later.
How to play at Eye of Horus Megaways Slot?
Eye of Horus has 6 reels with a maximum of 5 symbols per reel. Entirely according to Megaway’s tradition, the number of symbols per roll changes with every turn. The maximum number of Megaways is 15,625. You bet from 0.10 euros per spin and that goes up to 10 euros per spin. You can win a maximum of 10,000 x the bet, which with a maximum bet amounts to 100,000 euros. In terms of variance, we estimate Eye of Horus on medium to high. The theoretical payout percentage is 95.49%. That would be more than excellent if you were to play Eye of Horus in a gambling hall or a land based casino, but for an online slot it is just a bit too low.
There is no Buy a Bonus Feature present. We always finds that a bit of a missed opportunity. We love bonus rounds and don’t always have a lot of patience, and then it’s nice if you can go straight to the free spins via a shortcut.
Symbols and payouts
The Horus symbol is wild and replaces all symbols except the scatters. The eye of Horus is the highest paying symbol: spin six of them and you win 20 times the total bet. Other high symbols are the scarab, the dog Anubis and the vulture goddess Nechbet. These are worth between 1 x and 4 x for a 6-of-a-kind. The hieroglyphs and card symbols are the low paying symbols and give you less per 6-of-a-child than your bet.
Free spins bonus
Spin 3 or more scatters and you win the free spins bonus: 12 free spins. During the free spins, the wild Horus symbols play an essential role. Every time a game falls on the reels, you get two extra boosters:
- an extra free spin
- an upgrade from a high symbol to a high symbol
The more wilds you play, the more the same premium symbols are in the game and the greater the chance that you will get an extreme payout.
This bonus mechanism can generate an enormous amount of money, but it can also frustrate you enormously. If you are barely wild, the free spins offer little more than regular spins during the basic game. But are you able to run a lot of wilds quickly? Then it can hit every turn.
What do we think of this slot machine?
We were already a fan of the classic Eye of Horus slot machine and also loves Megaways slots. A combination of these two can really appeal to us. The only real downside to Eye of Horus Megaways is the somewhat lean theoretical payout percentage of 95.49%. Furthermore, it is a hit in its genre, which will do well in the many online casinos that offer the games of Blueprint Gaming.
