And not to forget, the three progressive jackpots with potentially life-changing payouts.
Mistress Of Egypt Diamond Spins is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 30 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only.

The total RTP including the jackpots stands at 96.20%.
Loading the game will take you to Cleopatra’s temple on a star-studded night with clear skies. The empress herself is standing graciously on left holding a gold pyramid in her hands. She will randomly distribute collected pyramids to the reels when the respective feature is triggered. The heavily ornamented game window is flanked by two Egyptian columns while an oriental soundtrack underlines the theme.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from J through to A, awarding 0.9x to 1x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are complemented by four Egyptian gods – Bastet, Thoth, Anubis and Horus as well as the mistress herself. Hit five on a line to win 1.6x to 3.33x your stake.
A pyramid marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols. A blue diamond marked with ‘Bonus’ is the scatter while a shiny diamond acts as the bonus symbol for the jackpot bonus game.
While the main attraction of the game are the three progressive jackpots, there is plenty happening on the reels that will keep you well entertained while you chase those potential life-changing payouts. Although, do not get your hopes up too high as the maximum win in a single spin peaks at just 200 times your bet when you hit a full screen of Cleopatra or wild symbols. The good part is that it will happen rather often, underlining the otherwise low volatility of the game.
Let’s start off with the Synchronized Reels feature that is in play on every spin in the base game. One regular pay symbol is randomly chosen to appear in large stacks on the reels, giving you more potential to hit a full screen and thus bigger wins. More action is coming from the Random Wilds Feature. On any spin, Cleopatra can throw 3 to 15 pyramid wilds onto the reels
Hitting three, four or five Bonus scatters will trigger 10, 20 and 75 Free Spins respectively. The random wilds feature will trigger on each free spins, adding a number of pyramid wilds to the reels to provide extra win potential.
Getting through these features so far is more like an appetizer for the main event, the Diamond Spins bonus game. where three progressive jackpots – Minor, Major and Grand – are up for grabs. Shiny diamonds can randomly appear on the reels as an overlay to the pay symbols. Having five in view will trigger the bonus game with initially three respins and the triggering diamonds locked in place. The respin counter will reset to three every time an additional diamond lands. The feature ends once you run out of respins or the screen is filled with diamonds.
Each diamond will reveal a coin win of 3x to 10x your total bet, plus, you can have special diamonds landing during the respins that will award extra prizes.
If there ever was a slot that is only worth playing when you want to chase progressive jackpots, the Diamond Spins series from IGT looks like a perfect choice. The main game won’t fill your pockets, nor empty them with lightspeed and it will all depend whether you trigger the jackpot bonus game. Overall, the theme is as expected well-executed together with decent animations, yet any normal slot player will quickly lose interest in playing it as the top pay for a full screen of the most valuable symbol peaks at just 200 times the bet.
