This month, we head to Egypt to showcase a slot that takes place in Luxor, a city that runs along the Nile. Gods of Luxor has an exotic theme showcased by cutting-edge animations, making it a good pick for any player who wants to uncover some good fortune – and excitement. This game should be on everyone’s must-spin list because it lets players step into the shoes of an archaeologist working on an ancient tomb in Egypt.

In this month’s edition of our Slot Flavor of the Month, we discuss the theme, format and features of one of our most popular slot games. Once you know how the game works, you can head to our casino to play Gods of Luxor slot for real money payouts, or by using Practice Play. If the game doesn’t suit you, you can always browse new slot games in the new section of our slots casino.


Gods of Luxor: Theme

Ancient Egyptian culture was shaped by myths, gods, and leaders who took on god-like statuses. Many Egyptian gods were depicted as a certain animal that symbolized the god’s role in the world. For example, the god Ra dragged the sun across the sky and is represented by the falcon or eagle. Sobek, God of the Nile, is forever connected with the crocodiles that inhabit the murky waters of the famous river.

You’ll find both of these gods and more when you spin the reels of Gods of Luxor. The game takes place in front of an underground tomb, with the reels placed in front of the opening. The game icons include five gods, the standard 9-A symbols, and gold scarabs that serve as a wild. Every time you spin the reels, it feels like you’re excavating a site in the tombs of Luxor, and if the correct matches land, you get rewarded handsomely for your find.

Gods of Luxor: Format

Gods of Luxor has the same popular 5-reel, 20-line format of many of our slots. That means matching icons must land along the pre-set paylines, starting on the first reel, in order to be considered a win. 20 fixed paylines means there are 20 different ways to win with every spin plus the wins that come from the bonus icons. And, as is the case with most slots, the amount of money won depends on the amount bet.

Pre-set bets range from $0.2 to $200 per spin, making this game suitable for all bankrolls. For those who prefer to play free slot games, simply launch a session using the Practice Play mode. The bet selected is divided by 20 (the number of paylines) in order to determine the bet per line. The payouts listed on the paytable show how many times your bet per line is multiplied for the payout. As expected, the god icons pay the most, with each one’s rank and power influencing the size of the payouts.

Gods of Luxor: Features

Scatters and wilds can be excavated from the tombs, so keep your eyes out for the Gold Scarab icon and the Key of Life symbols! The former is the wild, which substitutes for whatever game icon is needed in order to create a paying line. The wild also applies a 2X multiplier to the payouts listed on the paytable. On top of that, it’s also a game icon that pays when you land at least two on one of the game’s paylines. With many of the game icons requiring just two matches to trigger a payout, the wild generates lots of wins!

The Key of Life is a white cross-like symbol (many consider it the very first cross) and represents eternal life in ancient Egyptian culture. In Gods of Luxor, it serves as the game’s scatter and also comes with its own paytable for when you land a minimum of two crosses anywhere on the reels. If you get three or more, 15 free spins are awarded along with some other bonus features.

Throughout the game’s free spins session, payouts get boosted by a 3X multiplier (except for the payout offered for landing five wilds), making it an incredibly lucrative feature. To top it off, free spins can be re-triggered by landing three or more scatters anywhere on the reels.   

Another intriguing game feature included in Gods of Luxor is the Wheel of Gods. This feature can appear at random at the conclusion of any winning spin and is quite the exciting find in your excavation on the reels! The wheel has seven multipliers included, and has you spin the wheel to determine which one gets applied to your payout. The multiplies are as follows: 2X, 5X, 10X, 20X, 30X, 50X and 100X. 

Ancient Egypt continues to be one of the most popular slot themes available in our Bitcoin online casino; however, most of the Egyptian slots revolves around Cleopatra and Caesar. Gods of Luxor provides a nice alternative for those who are fans of this slot theme, but want something more than the pharaoh and dictator who are so often synonymous with ancient Egypt.
