Ancient Egypt is easily the most popular theme for online video slots. Maybe it is the age old mysticism that attracts players or the blessings of sacred deities. Despite there being a large number of slot machines with this theme, new titles keep on emerging.

Not too far back the leading online casino software provider Playtech released an ancient Egypt themed video slot titled Cat Queen. Cat Queen does not have the involved bonus features that are prevalent in contemporary slot machines but it pays out very frequently. This is because symbols frequently appear stacked not only on the same reel but also on adjacent reels. Cat Queen is a 40 paylines slot machine with four rows of symbols running across the reels. The Cat Queen, complete with cat like ears, is the wild symbol and also awards the top line payout. Other symbols from ancient Egypt include pharaoh, pyramid, ankh, Eye of Horus, scarab, Sphinx and Anubis. Three or more pyramid symbols award 15 free spins that can be retriggered. Cat Queen also includes the Playtech gamble game in which you can stake half or all of your winnings from a spin.

Valley of the Scarab is a somewhat similar video slot from Amaya and available at Cryptologic online casinos. It has four rows of symbols, but a massive 100 paylines which results in more frequent wins. The symbols include scarab, pharaoh, queen, cat, mummies and Anubis. Anubis awards the bonus feature. You get only 7 free spins, but the payouts are randomly multiplied from x2 to x8. The free spins can be retriggered. The scarab is the wild symbol. If you get 20 scarabs on the reels all payouts are multiplied x5.

Throne of Egypt is one of the newer Microgaming slots with the ancient Egypt theme. The detailed designing of the symbols on the reels, the win animations and the graphics in general are awesome. The Throne of Egypt logo is the wild symbol and it appears stacked on the reels. The symbols include pharaoh, queen, eagle Anubis, scarab and others. There are two bonus features in this video slot. The fire symbol awards 15 free spins with doubled payouts. The free spins can be retriggered. The multi-level second screen bonus game is more visually rewarding. You are first taken to the scarab chamber where you select scarabs and win bonus credits. If you reveal the key you go to the eagle chamber and similarly from there to the princess chamber.
