There are many different kinds of betways among modern slot releases.
The newest Egyptian-themed slot, called Gems Of Egypt Connecta Ways, incorporates a kind of betways, called Connecta Ways, of reels that slide up and down during each spin.
Created by the iGaming software developer Boomerang Studios, this video slothas a rarely encountered 5x10 layout with 961 betways.
Ancient Egypt, although a common theme among slot games, always seems to find its audience.
This one does look different from most from the start, partly due to the unique 5x10 grid layout, and partly because the developers opted to avoid the usual visuals of the vast desert and imposing pyramids.
Instead, the background consists of the entrance of the ancient temple, with two Anubis statues on each side, lit by the fire from two superbly animated braziers and purplish light from the skies above.
The music is very Egyptian-like and befits the theme perfectly.
Betting Options and Functions
The minimum to maximum bet is 0.25 to 35 coins per spins with the highest win standing at x4818 of the placed stake.
The variance is medium-to-high, but the return-to-player leaves quite a bit to be desired, standing at much less than ideal 95.60%.
All regular symbols are the gems mentioned in the title of the game. The four higher-paying gemstones are framed in a golden rim, come in green, blue, red, and white colors. 3, 4, 5, or 6 of them deliver the win, except for the highest-paying white one, that pays even if only 2 land.
What Are The Features?
There isn't that much in terms of features, except for the basic ones.
The Scarab Scatter symbol will be what you’ll find yourself relying on the most, as 3 or more such symbols on the reels, reward 8 extra spins. Also, they multiply your win, paying x5, x20, x75, and x100 of the stake, depending on whether 3, 4, 5, or 6 appear on the reels.
The Wild Cleopatra symbol substitutes for any other symbol in the game, except the mentioned Scatterer. The symbol appears on reels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 and is solely there to substitute for other symbols, as it doesn’t bring any wins on its own.
There are many enticing elements to Gems Of Egypt Connecta Ways, primarily the very interesting 5x10 layout with sliding reels.
However, the RTP leaves a lot to be desired and the game could benefit from some additional features. The extra spins that can be retriggered are by far the best feature and those who are fond of the theme of Ancient Egypt will find this title to be enjoyable.
