Red Rake released the slot in December. It is unique yet it has some of the typical features of Egyptian games. Mother of Horus includes an extra roulette mini-game. There are fixed rewards from the upper prize bar and free spins feature. The symbol with the most significant role in the slot is, of course, Isis. She triggers all three extra features.
Mother of Horus centres around Isis. She was the goddess of life and magic. Isis was also known for having protected women and children and healed the sick ones. Horus was her son who she had Osiris. His father she resurrected from the dead.
The slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and as many as 50 fixed pay-lines that will bring you wins. This is a game with a lot of extra features and modifiers. You can win from the rewards of the Upper Prize Bar. They include sums in the range of 2 to 250 times your bet, access to the Destiny Roulette mini-game and Free Spins.
The Destiny Roulette wheel has 4 fixed Jackpots. These are Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpot prizes. The four can give you from 15x to 500x stake prizes. You will also win from the nudging wilds and free spins. The latter can result in up to 2,500 times your stake or £87,500. This is the maximum win that you can score per free spin. Mother of Horus is a medium volatility slot with an RTP of 95.3%.
The game is typical Egyptian and is set in an Egyptian temple chamber. Two eternal flames stand on both sides of the reels. The background around the reels is heavily ornamented with ancient hieroglyphs. The symbols include 5 playing cards. The more attractive symbols are the picture ones. These are the Temple of Philae, pyramid, Horus, Osiris and the goddess Isis. The flag in burgundy with the scarab is the wild.
The graphics are of exceptional quality and precision. Brown, orange and fiery and overall colours of the desert dominate the playing window. Over the 5 reels, you will see 5 mini reels. The most nicely styled symbol is that of Isis and the scarab. The soundtrack is traditional for the theme. It includes oriental tunes and the sound of the reels.
The symbols include the playing cards at the low end and other Egyptian themed ones. The 10, J and Q pay the same – 3 to 5 of a kind on a pay-line gives you from 0.10 to 0.50 times your stake. The K and A return from 0.10x to 0.70x for 3 to 5 in a combination from left to right.
The Temple of Philae pays from 1x to 10x stake for 3 to 5 symbols, the pyramid- 1x to 15x stake for 3 to 5 symbols on a pay-line. These two are the middle-value symbols. Horus has a value of from 0.20 to 25 times your stake for 2 to 5 symbols. Osiris and the goddess Isis pay the same – 2 to 5 symbols give you 0.20 to 50 times your stake. Isis can land on reels 1, 3 and 5 only in the base game but during free spins, it can appear on all reels.
The burgundy flag with the green scarab on it is the wild. It has payouts as well – the same as the premiums Osiris and Isis – up to 50 times your stake. The scarab wild substitutes for all symbols except for Isis. It can trigger several nudges up and down when it lands to add extra wilds to the respective reel. The wild can also add an Isis symbol at random on the active reels in the current spin.
The game has no scatter and you trigger the features through the mini reels on the top of the game window. To win you have to land from 2 or 3 symbols to 5 at the most on any of the 50 fixed pay-lines from left to right.
Upon loading the slot, you will notice that on the top part of the window over each reel there is an Upper Prize Bar. It is a horizontal set that includes 5 mini reels – one for each main reel. It holds various prizes that become active once Isis lands on them. These can be cash rewards of from 2x to 250x bet, the jackpot mini roulette game or 10 free spins. As we mentioned, you can land Isis on reels 1, 3 and 5 only during the base game.
Hit the Isis symbol together with the Free Spins icons on the mini reel above to trigger 10 Free Spins. The more triggers you get in one spin the more free rounds you get – 10 of them per trigger. While you play free spins, you add 2 more rounds every time Isis hits on the reel with a Free Spins icon above it. You can do this many times without limits. You will have all 5 mini-reels active during free spins. This grants you many more chances to win one of the prizes.
You get access to the Destiny Roulette mini-game when you get Isis on a reel with a jackpot icon on the mini reel above it. You can win many spins on the roulette wheel by triggering it with more than one Isis symbol with the jackpot icon above it. You will have a large wheel on the screen with 4 fixed jackpots that you can win. These are:
You win one spin on the wheel for each trigger of the game. The arrow stops on one of the 4 jackpot prizes above, which will be paid out to you.
