Hand of Anubis Review
The Egyptian slot genre is quite oversaturated with every slot developer bringing out at least half a dozen of these types of slots. Hacksaw Gaming decided to join this group with Hand of Anubis.
However, Hand of Anubis is unlike any other Egyptian slot as it's a darker and grittier slot showing how dangerous the deities of Ancient Egypt actually were.
This high volatility slot features two different types of bonus games all centred around the Underworld and Judgement leading to wins of up to 10,000x your stake.
When the slot opens up, you'll notice a dark, grey background with two strange creatures on either side of the reels. These are both Anubis with a jackal head and a human body, but they both look twisted and are wrapped in dirty bandages.
Amazingly, both the creatures are animated and are creepily standing there breathing throughout the spins. On the reels, there are various Egyptian hieroglyphics as well as traditional symbols such as J, 10, K and A are designed to look like hieroglyphics as well.
The music in this slot is definitely Egyptian inspired but more intense than expected. There is a guitar track played in the distance with a drumbeat that intensifies throughout spins. It's completely befitting for this slot and builds up the terror of Anubis.
Hand of Anubis is a Cluster Pays slot meaning that the gameplay is played on a grid and wins are made through clusters. Alongside this, there are two bonus features and multipliers which enhance the gameplay.
Like most Hacksaw Gaming slots, the menu bar is at the bottom of the screen with the spin button to the right and followed by the bet level.
The RTP for this slot is respectable at 96.24% and this goes well with the high volatility level. Ultimately, high volatility slots lead to larger wins, but these occur less frequently.
In true Hacksaw Gaming fashion, the maximum win is a respectable 10,000x your stake that can be achieved through the bonus rounds with multipliers.
Hand of Anubis is one of the most refreshing Egyptian slots that we've come across in a long time. Sadly, the Egyptian genre has become too oversaturated and many developers just rely on this alone.
Thankfully, Hacksaw Gaming's first Egyptian slot is brilliant in every sense. The gameplay, the features, the design and the win potential are just excellent. This is one Egyptian slot not to miss!
