Pragmatic Play Begins the Year with a Bang with Mysterious Egypt

January 15, 2021

Renowned iGaming software developer Pragmatic Play is back in the headlines once again, right on the heels of expanding its footprint in the Latin American market. But this time the designers are in the limelight for unveiling their second new title of the year, Mysterious Egypt.

As the name suggests, the title transports players back in time to the enchanting land of the Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Giza. And although the title isn’t novel by any means, the high-volatile, 5-reel 3-row video slot with 10-paylines is an ideal addition to the company’s “Book of” series.

Mysterious Egypt: Features and Gameplay

The base game comes with numerous modifiers, including special mystery rounds that add to the immersive gaming experience. Designed around ancient Egyptian artefacts, the in-game symbols include 9-A cards while the high-paying symbols are the Pyramids, cats, falcons, and the Eye of Horus.

Landing five Eye of Horus premium symbols in a single round triggers between 75x and 100x the bet. A different special mystery symbol appears during the base game while the active icons remain visible above the reels. These symbols can expand vertically to cover every position on the reels that they land on and trigger payouts of a corresponding value.

The extra spins mode is activated by landing three or more queen symbols that double up as the Scatter and the Wild, substituting symbols except for the expanded ones. Two mystery symbols are selected at random during the Bonus Feature, and this expands throughout the entire round for a chance to return a significant payout.

Commenting at the time of launch, Pragmatic Play’s Chief Business Development Officer Yossi Barzely said, “Mysterious Egypt is packed to the rim with modifiers and jackpots and continues to provide players with significant wins, endless bonuses, and free spins. Our premium range of slots continues to innovate and add to the gaming experience, and Mysterious Egypt is no different”.

Mysterious Egypt compliments Pragmatic Play’s eclectic portfolio perfectly as it joins the creator’s latest hits like the popular John Hunter series, Voodoo Magic, and Mayan Gods.

LatAm Expansions Plans

As mentioned earlier, Pragmatic Play has made huge headways into the Latin American market and is the first operator to secure content-sharing deals with Boldt S.A.’s Bplay brands in Paraguay and Argentina.

The Malta-based software provider is currently the only iGaming aggregator for the two operators. Some of the fan favourites in Pragmatic Play’s portfolio include Wolf Gold and the savoury treat Sweet Bonanza. The firm also launched its latest live casino experience Mega Wheels.

According to Pragmatic Play’s Vice President for the Latin American region, Victor Arias, “being the first content creator for Bplay, is a grand achievement for the LatAm market. We confirm our position in the region as we look forward to this partnership bearing more fruits in the future”.

Adding to the statement, Javier Samel, an Online Gaming Consultant at Boldt said: “We are thrilled to have Pragmatic Play as our partner as this gives us a grand opportunity to expand our business beyond the Argentine borders and into Central and South America”.
