Wild Scarabs, the latest game release from Isle of Man based software development company, Microgaming, transports players back to ancient Egypt in their quest for long-lost treasures guarded by gilded scarabs.

This five-reel online slot offers 243 ways to win and two exciting wild features that award players with massive wins. In the base game, ancient Egypt serves as the backdrop for the richly adorned reels and it is here that the Wild Deal feature can be triggered by players by landing a wild on reel 3 during a non-winning spin. This feature amps up gameplay by placing four extra wilds on the reels to awards players with a guaranteed win.

The excitement doesn’t end there as three or more scatters unlock 10 extra spins and the opportunity to uncover additional hidden treasure with another awesome feature, Stashed Wilds. This feature awards precious prizes when three or more non-winning wild scarab symbols are collected and stashed, and then released back onto the reels. The extra spins soirée continues until all the sacred beetles have been released, which gives players the opportunity to discover the Pharaoh’s fortune.

Wild Scarabs can be enjoyed across all devices including desktop, laptop, mobile phone and tablet. Gamers on the go will be pleased to find that the latest Microgaming release can be enjoyed in portrait and landscape mode.

Commenting on the release, games publisher for Microgaming, David Reynolds, said, “Wild Scarabs is a stunning slot with two exciting wild features. Wild Deal™ gives players a chance to win on a non-winning spin in the base game, while scarabs can be can be collected during free spins as Stashed Wilds™. Delivering rich colors and incredible graphics, the game is really brought to life, transporting players back in time to Ancient Egypt.”

The release of Wild Scarabs is on the heels of the launch of the far from traditional Poke The Guy online slot which the games developer landed late last month.
