Play’n GO stunned the gaming industry at the end of 2019 with its aggressive plan for this year. A big part of that plan is to release 52 new games and so far the company remains on track. The latest game release follows in the footsteps of one of this year’s first big hits, Legacy of Dead.
The new game is called Dawn of Egypt. This five-reel slot has a heavy emphasis on powerful symbols. It is also set in an alternative reality. In this one, ancient Egypt is ruled by the great god Ra. The overall Egyptian theme has always been big with Play’n GO. There have been different takes on this theme over the years. All-in-all, the Ancient Egypt theme has always had a popular draw with the company’s core players.
Johan Tornqvist is the CEO of Play’n GO. He addresses the concept of variety in the following quote: “We have already given the market a lot of variety so far this year and we will continue. But you also have to give your audience things they want, as well as showing them something new. It’s a delicate balance and one which we respect in our plans.”
Legacy of Dead was actually the first new release in 2020. This is a five-reel video slot that can activate up to 10 paylines. Scatter symbols act as Wilds and they substitute all other symbols. Three or more Scatters can trigger an initial eight Free Spins. A random symbol can be chosen to become an Expanding Symbol during the Free Spin round. There is also a Gamble round tied to correctly guessing the color or the suit of a hidden card.
The Dawn of Egypt five-reel slot machine takes players back to the beginning of civilization. They have the opportunity to build their fortune along side the all-powerful god Ra. This is also a five-reel slot with 10 paylines. Ancient aspects of Egypt are incorporated into game symbols. Examples include a lotus as the symbol of creation. Ankh symbolizes life. A snake, scorpion and sacred animals are part of Egyptian folklore. Sekhmet is the warrior goddess and Ra represents himself.
