The Purse of the Mummy is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot developed by BetOnSoft.
Purse of the Mummy is a play on words of “Curse of the Mummy” and brings to mind the fairly recent the Mummy films with Brendan Frasier. We’ve all heard of the curse of the mummy but I’m sure we would prefer to win his purse, and in this game, you have the chance to do just that!
To give you an overview, Purse of the Mummy features a wild symbol, a scatter symbol, free spins round, and maximum jackpot win of $2,500. In case you haven’t guessed, the theme of Purse of the Mummy is an ancient Egyptian one with a freshly open tomb, which is both scary and has the potential for some big wins. The mummy himself is the backdrop for the darkened, torch lit reels of this game, and you can tell the mummy isn’t too happy at being awoken from his eternal slumber. The game’s overall ambiance is similar to the Mummy Films or Indiana Jones.
The coin denominations accepted in Purse of the Mummy range from $0.01 to $0.50, for an overall betting range of $0.01 up to $37.50, so this game should definitely appeal to low and mid level players alike. Symbols on the reels include a scarab beetle, ankhs, mummies, archeologists, bull heads, and the standard card deck symbols such as 10, 9, K, and Q styled with Egyptian hieroglyphics. King Tut is the game’s wild symbol, and it substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter symbol, which is the scarab beetle, and the mummy symbol. King Tut also doubles the prizes won according to the paytable. There are also multipliers depending on how many King Tut symbols you get on the payline. One gives you a 2x multiplier, two gives you a 4x multiplier, and four get you 16x your prize.
The scarab beetle carries with it the scatter payout but players might also like to know that if you get the scarab on reels 1, 3, and 5 at the same time it triggers the scarab beetle bonus game where several beetles race in a 100m dash. You pick one of the beetles and it awards a prize based on its finishing position. Kind of like betting horses except this is ancient Egypt!
Finally, you have the mummy icon, which is your ticket to the free spin round. You also get a 5x multiplier during the free spins round and if you get three, four, or five mummy symbols in scattered positions, you are awarded 5, 10, or 15 free spins so be on the lookout for him! With a host of bonus features good jackpots, and accurate Egyptian theme, I highly recommend Purse of the Mummy. Happy adventuring!
