For reasons uknown, the manufacturers of video slot machines are definitely drawn to the long lost world in all its forms. Whether or not its the Aztecs or Incas, the Vikings, or other past worlds, just a little reflection on the past would seem to be one of the major themes you will find in slot machine games

Labyrinth of Egypt is a classic slot machine that is Egyptian themed. It’s got 5 reels and 15 pay lines and all of the traditional symbols you should expect, bar pyramids! There are hieroglyphs, scarab beetles and much more. The drumming music could use a little work though. Yet another slot, the Book of Ra, also looks similar and draws on the Egyptian sun god. You can open the book of Ra to get free spins on that slot, that also has some nice twists.

As well as the ideas of pharaohs, pyramids, Cleopatra has also inspired slots. The provocative temptress who inspired Shakespeare and more is a well-known figure – who doesn’t love a little tension and seduction. The exploration of King Tutunkhamun’s tomb was also a great story a while ago – have a read about the curse, which is intriguing, and you can enjoy getting deep into the pyramids with a slot called King Tut’s treasure. Hopefully you won’t suffer the same fate as the intrepid souls who opened up the tomb.

Chariots and horses come to the fore in Egyptian Kings and Queens, while you will find there’s progressive jackpot slot called Queen of the Pyramids. The themes of puzzles, hidden treasure, pyramids, closed away secrets and perplexing hieroglyphs are full of suspense, intrigue and fun – in a nutshell they create the perfect theme for a slot, so it ‘s no wonder so many slots have been inspired by ancient Egypt.
