Jewel Scarabs slot review (Red Tiger)
Jewel Scarabs is a tasty Red Tiger Gaming slot, with an Egyptian theme, progressive multipliers, and wild respins
Bagging super big wins is very well possible with Jewel Scarabs: the maximum payout per spin is an impressive 5,245 x the total bet.
Red Tiger Gaming did not pimp the base game but kept it remarkably simple: there are only nine paylines, divided over 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols.
The variance of Jewel Scarabs is medium, and that always works for us: you can win nice amounts of money, but you are less exposed to risk than a high variance slot.
The theoretical payout rate is 95.77%. To us, that’s already moderate at most but take note: there are versions of Jewel Scarabs that payout even less. These are the versions connected to the Daily Drop Jackpots network.
You can win daily and less frequent (but more significant) jackpots here, but you pay a hefty price for it: the Return to Player is a miserable 93.74%.
Symbols and payouts
You bet a fixed amount per spin, which starts at $€ 0.10 and ends at $€ 10 per spin.
Since there are nine paylines and you bet in multiples of 10, it is sometimes difficult to determine what a specific combination yields: you have to start converting.
Providers like Pragmatic Play and Thunderkick have a solution for this roundabout way of displaying wins and use paytables that always show a multiple of the current total bet.
We hope Red Tiger solves this shortcoming and follows suit.
Anyway, the fluttering golden scarabs play the leading role in this slot.
This mythical creature has a double role: it’s both a wild and a bonus trigger. If you spin 5 wilds on an active payline, you grab 20 x the total bet.
If you hit a winning combination, including one or more wilds, these wild symbols will remain on the reels for the next spin (but on other positions).
And if you manage to spin three wilds, you have activated the lucrative free spins bonus. Not only do the scarabs look stunning, but they also indirectly generate the biggest payouts. But more about that later.
The Egyptian gods are the premium symbols and award you between 8 x and 20 x the total bet for five identical ones.
The card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A are worth a lot less: between 2 x and 5 x the total bet for a 5-of-a-kind on a payline.
Free spins bonus
Admittedly, this free spins bonus feature is damn hard to win.
There’s a perfect reason for that: it can also pay out vast sums of money.
During the free spins, there are always three fluttering wild scarabs on the screen.
Each time a scarab is part of a winning combination, its multiplier is increased by +1.
There is no maximum set for the multiplier, and in the case of a combination with multiple wilds, the mutual multipliers are multiplied with each other. If you have a wild with an x 3 multiplier and a wild with an x 4 multiplier in a winning combination, both multiply, and the total multiplier equals x 12.
The gameplay of this bonus feature reminds us to some extent of Jammin’ Jars and Dragonfall, be it on a somewhat smaller scale.
Our verdict on Jewel Scarabs?
Jewel Scarabs is an exquisite Red Tiger video slot, which will undoubtedly do well in the many online casinos offering slots from this popular gaming provider.
The theme may be a bit generic but is executed well, and the slot has some mouth-watering surprise features.
Conclusion: Jewel Scarabs is not earth-shatteringly good, but well worth a try.
