The presentation of the Gems of Isis slot by Galewind looks like you are actually sitting down at a land-based slot. This gives it a bit of a different feel, and even the controls are presented like they are a part of a land-based machine. You'll see the Egyptian-themed symbols and background for this game as if you were sitting at the game itself, and we like the visual appeal it gives the game. This title has a medium overall volatility with a lot of action and chances for some pretty sizable jackpots.

Game Format

this game uses a pretty standard format with five reels and three rows. You'll see markers for 20 paylines, all of which pay left to right only. There are four coin denominations available at $0.05, $0.25, $1 and $2, and you can play with up to five coins on each payline. The minimum bet size is $1 per spin, but you can play for up to $200 per turn. Penny players might want to skip out on this game for the relatively large minimum bet size, but other than that, it covers a pretty significant range of different available bet sizes.

Wild Symbol, Scatter and Free Spins

The opened scroll symbol is wild, and it shows up on all reels during the regular game. Five of a kind pays a whooping 10,000x jackpot, the largest single-line win that you can get in the game, and four of a kind pays 1,000x, which is still pretty reasonable. It will substitute for anything but the scatter.

The scatter symbol for this game is two figures holding up a diamond, and this symbol also shows up on all of the reels. Three or more gives you a set of free spins with the ability to earn up to 30 free turns. During these free spins, all of your wins are hit with a 2x multiplier. The wild symbol also becomes an expanding wild, but it will not show up on the first reel. You end up getting some pretty good value from this feature regardless of the fact that the top regular payout is not available.

What's important to realize about this feature is that you're going to get a whole lot of wins that you wouln't have gotten otherwise, and they're going to be twice as large as they would have normally been as well. This will definitely make up for the fact that the wild is removed from the first reel, removing the wild payouts from play for the bonus feature. Getting up to 30 (and a minimum of 10) free spins also means there's a lot of value at stake here, so don't feel like you're missing out with this feature.

Major Regular Wins

The bird is the top-paying regular symbol, and it pays 1,000x for five of a kind. That and the wild are also the only symbols that pay for just two of a kind. You can get 300x for five of the bracelet or five of the scarab as well. Five of the bells gives you a 200x win, and you can also pick up 200x for five of the pharaoh's head.

Dropping down to the minor symbols, you can get 100x for five of the cross-shaped symbol with a hoop at the top or five of the two rods crossing. Five of the tomb head, five of the ring or five of the Egyptian god tablet symbol all pay 50x. These low-end symbols have pretty reasonable payouts considering that the five of a kind pays give you 50x, which is less than what you find for the five of a kind wins for the lowest symbols in a lot of other video slots.

In Summary

You're going to find Egyptan-themed slots no matter where you look, online or offline, in the casino industry. It's just one of those themes that has been done to death by just about every major software and game provider out there. Galewind has done a good job with Gems of Isis regardless of that, and we definitely applaud their effort. The volatility of this game can be a bit high at times, but the value of the free spins bonus feature and the large top jackpot of 10,000x combine to make it worth it. Overall, the only real drawback of this game is the high minimum bet size.
