 Latest in Egyptian and East Asian Themes

Slot machines with ancient Egyptian themes or East Asian imagery have long resonated with slot players. Incredible Technologies puts its own spin on both in new games we’ll be playing in 2018.

In Rays of Egypt, the sun god Ra comes to the fore in a 40-line video slot in Incredible’s GoldLink game family. During regular play any Sun Scatters that land on reels open the Eye of Ra at the top of the screen, and the Eye adds shimmering stacked gold wilds to the reels.

Three scarab beetles unlock the GoldLink Progressive Bonus. Select a beetle to reveal a number of spins on bonus reels where all the symbols are Egyptian coins. Look for four different colored halos around the coins — they not only award additional free spins but lock onto the screen for remaining free spins.

Collect the halos to unlock one of five progressive wheels. The final award of any progressive wins plus credits from the coin scatters can create huge payoffs.

The stacks and wilds keep you going in regular play, and the progressives plus payoffs on scattered coins make bonus time an event to savor.

Meanwhile, IT looks to the Far East with its Fate of the 8 Power Wheel, combining gorgeous imagery, the lucky number “8” and the Power Wheel for bonusing.

On the 30-line video base game, your credits build with the Instant Stack scatter. Any vertical stack of three like symbols awards credits instantly.

When three Power Wheel symbols land on the reels, you unlock the huge wheel overhead. Your spin of the Power Wheel could win credits, one of six progressive jackpots or take you to the Koi Catch bonus game. If the wheel lands on a credit award, you also get to spin a secondary wheel for chance to multiply winnings up to four times.

In the Koi Catch bonus, the inner wheel awards you a number of picks, Koi fish them swim up and down a crystal stream across your screen. You tap on fish to collect credits and extra picks.
