It looks like Blueprint Gaming noticed how gradually it became harder to find classic Eye of Horus slot from Merkur Gaming, so instead of tweaking the original one which was already very impressive on the market, they decided to develop a “pimped” version of Merkur’s game.
Now, to avoid confusion, Blueprint Gaming and Merkur Gaming are sister companies owned by Gauselmann Group. Both studios co-exist in harmony and apparently do share ideas no matter the competition.
Expectations from tuned up version MEGAWAYS
Right at the get-go, what you’ll notice is that this is not your regular 5×3 setup, but rather more spicy one. 6 Reels and up to 5 symbols on each which actually creates 15,625 ways to win, which is insane, yet not as insane as other Megaways slots with 7 rows in play which is 117,649 ways to win, but we should put this topic away for another day.
Graphics and design are pretty neat, you get Ancient Egypt feeling with all the birds, jackals, sticks and scarabs on the symbols; what appears to be two giant pillars on both sides and a freaking ‘Good Luck!’ message nagging you all game as if it helps.
Eye of Horus MEGAWAYS features and bonuses
The Horus himself is wild which means he can substitute for all other symbols in the game except scatter; hence to compensate his inability to dominate scatter, whenever he lands he expands to cover a full reel.
Eventually, you’ll stumble upon the temple doorways that will trigger free spins if you land at least three of those. This gives you 12 spins with a special feature where Horus shoots light beams at symbols, thus upgrading them to the next highest value, which leans you towards bigger wins.
Horus wilds are so awesome that whenever you land them during the round, you can get up to 5 extra spins added to your total.
This awesome feature gives you a potential for a huge win, specifically when winning symbols land, they will be replaced by another one thus increasing your win chances. If you are a fan of this feature, you can enjoy it on many other Megaways slots as it is pretty common.
Should we jump on a bandwagon?
Well, you shouldn’t go frantic on the game, but looking at its popularity despite being released on November 28, 2019 – you should definitely get a couple of bucks ready to give it a spin!
What I can say for sure is that Blueprint’s decision to upgrade this popular game is a definite accomplishment – be it attracting those who have nostalgia for the original game or just being amused by the theme itself, a lot more than a bunch of players online find themselves hunting for a 10,000 times the sake win.
