Red Tiger invites you into the inner sanctum of an Egyptian deity – it’s Vault of Anubis. If cluster pays, cascading tiles and the odd scarab are enough to pique your interest, this 7×6 grid outing is going to fit the bill.

Is this slot as solid as the pyramids, or will it go the way of Tutankhamun? Adjust your monocle, tighten your bootstraps and get ready to enter the Vault of Anubis.

A Tomb with a View

Of man, really? Another Egypt-themed slot? Just when you thought that the ‘Egypt’ slot section at your online casino was about to burst at the virtual seams, Vault of Anubis arrived as the new kid in the playground.

Rubbing shoulders with big hitters such as Cleopatra, Valley of the Gods and Book of Dead, Vault of Anubis is a perfect example of a thematic tomb that has been well and truly plundered.

The frame is filled with lots of tans and browns with the omnipresent music that you’d probably hear at some yoga retreat, or perhaps a mid-range North African restaurant in Peckham. I find the whole style of ancient Egypt-themed slots done to absolute death – no sarcophagus required.

Personal grievances aside, the graphics bods at Red Tiger have done a pretty good job here. Perhaps the symbols could be less illustrated and take on a more iconic approach but it seems they’ve certainly done their homework. Well, either that or they’re pretty well-practised at churning out Egypt-soaked slots at breakneck speed.

Whichever way you look at it, here’s a slot that is seeped in the atmospheric world of ancient Egyptian tombs and if you’re that way inclined, you’re probably going to love Vault of Anubis.

Pyramid Scheme

Using cascading reels, cluster pays mechanics, Vault of Anubis is a great choice for players that enjoy oversized grids and just enough gaming dynamic to garner interest, if not excitement. Laughing in the face of paylines, cluster pays work a bit differently from regular symbols. Paying in any direction as opposed to the often used left to right convention, cluster pays enable players to enjoy more action. Five or more symbols make up a cluster, no less.

Luckily, this slot packs a fair amount of features, namely:

  • Cascading reels
  • Colossal symbols
  • Random Wilds
  • Free Spins

The Free Spins round is unearthed by landing 4x Vault Spins in a single spin. Fill your above-grid meter and enter into a world of 10x Free Spin fun with multipliers. Here, multipliers are unlimited and increase by 1x per cascade, resetting once the Free Spins round has ended. If you’re lucky enough, a random symbol will expand on any reel it lands on.

High-paying symbols can function just as that, or emerge as 2×2 and 3×3 symbols. 3×3 super symbols are win-guaranteed, while 2×2 symbols boost your chances to win.

As is standard with Red Tiger releases, autoplay is available up to 100 spins. Just make sure you set your loss limit accordingly.

Payouts fit for a Pharaoh

Vault of Anubis’ vital statistics are as follows:

  • 95.74% RTP
  • High volatility
  • 5,469x maximum win potential
  • $0.10 minimum bet
  • $10 maximum bet

While casino whales will be deterred by the low maximum bet value, this is more than adequate for most casual slot players. Slots are all about fun, let’s try and keep it that way.

An Entombed Endeavour

The design here is pleasant, with a welcome touch of electric blue to support the otherwise monotonous colour palette found in Vault of Anubis, as well as most other Egypt-themed slots.

I’ve never been a massive fan of Egypt-themed slots, and Vault of Anubis does nothing to persuade me otherwise. There’s something about this slot that takes me back to my secondary school History class and we’re revising for an exam. As well-accomplished as the graphics of this slot are, I’ve been here before and got the pyramid T-shirt to prove it.

Anubis: god of cemeteries, mummification, embalming, death and now a relatively successful slot franchise. But when will it end? As if Book of Anubis and Scroll of Anubis weren’t enough, here Anubis’ final resting place is now the setting. It makes me wonder, what’s next? Guest Bedroom of Anubis? Favourite Dog Chow of Anubis?

I think it’s time to leave Anubis’ tomb and quietly close the door behind us. Even Egyptian deities need their beauty sleep.
