Join the dashing explorer for a reel expedition on the slot from NoLimit City. Tomb of Nefertiti will take you to Egypt to find the hidden chamber in the tomb of the ancient queen. Your quest is aided by Win Respins with sticky wilds, two random features and a free spins round with unlimited progressive multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 2,500 times your bet.
Tomb of Nefertiti is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 15 independently spinning reel positions that form 20 fixed pay lines. The number will increase to 40 pay lines during the Raid Spins. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can travel to Egypt on desktop or mobile from 0.20 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.19%.
The majestic entrance to Nefertiti’s temple is in the background of the marble-encased game window. Stone columns flank the reels while a dark, cloud-covered sky is announcing an imminent thunderstorm. Various Egyptian gods, together with Nefertiti’s bust and the Lara Croft lookalike female explorer dominate the reels while an epic soundtrack creates a suspenseful atmosphere.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 2x to 4x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by ancient amphoras, the cat goddess Bastet, scarabs, the god of death and afterlife Anubis and the sun god Ra. Hit five on a line to win 5x to 25x your bet.
The intrepid tomb raider is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two to five only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. The bust of Nefertiti marked with ‘Bonus’ acts as the scatter.
As usual with explorer-themed slots, there is a lot happening on the reels. NoLimit City went even a few steps further and created a game engine that does not have so-called reel strips and instead has 15 individually spinning reel positions. This will come impressively into play during the Win Respins, the most common feature on the game.
Any win in the base game or free spins will trigger up to two respins with all losing and wild symbol positions locked in place. All positions that were part of the winning combo will respin to potentially create more winners. At the same time, a progressive multiplier will activate, increasing to x2 and x3 on the first and second winning respin. All locked positions and the multipliers will be reset after a losing respin or latest after the second winning respin.
Trust NoLimit City to include a few surprising twists that have the potential to be real balance boosters. On Tomb of Nefertiti, you can benefit from two random features that are associated with the two heroines of the theme, the female tomb raider and the Egyptian Queen.
Get ready to enter the treasure chamber when you hit three or more Nefertitit scatters anywhere on the reels. The game will trigger 10 Raider Spins, which cannot be retriggered as such but any scatter landing on a free spins will award +1 free spin, no limits.
Before the start of the bonus round, the game will activate 20 additional pay lines on the same 5×3 grid, which will double your chances to hit a win. Not only that, but the Wild Raider feature will trigger on every Raider Spin, adding at least on random wild to the reels. The kicker though is the progressive win multiplier. It starts at x1 and increases by x1 after every win. The multiplier will not reset after a losing spin and instead will keep growing, no limits.
Well, it was quite refreshing to see for once an Egyptian-themed slot with Nefertiti, translated “The Beautiful Woman has Come”, on the reels instead of the commonly used Cleopatra and Horus. NoLimit City is known for its out-of-the-ordinary designs such as Tombstone or Tractor Beam and has not disappointed here either. The slot is entertaining to play, has ample feature and a decent win potential of up to 2,500 times your bet.
