Games Related to Isis
With all the things that have happening around the world, it is fair to say that Isis is not going to win any awards for being the most popular name for a slot.
But Isis is a game that has been around since August 2006, with a newer updated version released in January 2014 for mobile, so we can forgive Microgaming for the name. Besides the name 'Isis' comes from the goddess of fertility in ancient Greece and Egypt.
It is probably a good thing that you know this because this is one hugely impressive mobile slot that has been wowing slot players for many years, given its heady mix of fantastic top jackpot prizes, regular big money wins and superb bonus round features.
As the name suggests, this is a slot based upon the ancient goddess of health, marriage and wisdom from Egyptian mythology and the high symbols across the reels are all linked in with this overarching theme of the slot.
Isis is a 5x3 reel slot which has 25 paylines in operation on every spin. The paylines are fixed, so you'll need to play 25x your coin stake on each spin in order to play the game. Your coins can range from a low of 0.01 up to a maximum of 0.50 coins per spin, which gives a minimum bet of just 0.25 or a maximum possible bet of 125.00 coins.
Once you have set how much you want to play for then you can start the reels spinning by clicking the gold Spin button.
The low symbols in the game are the traditional playing card lows and in Isis these are nothing spectacular. They are the cards from 9 through to the Ace and each is decorated in an orange/gold colour. In truth, it is a tad disappointing to see these as part of the slot as with the rich and varied range of characters and artifacts that are part of Egyptian mythology, Microgaming could easily have changed these into low symbols more fitting in with the general theme of the slot.
The high symbols are a number of different symbols related to Isis and her role in Egyptian mythology. In truth, some of the symbols are rather hard to fathom as to what they actually are. There appears to be some form of flower object, a symbol with four symmetrical golden wings, the eye of horus and a somewhat strange looking vase object with a womans head as the top (similar to the Russian dolls that open up and contain numerous replicas of the doll in increasingly smaller sizes).
The good news is that you don't actually have to have a great understanding of what each symbol is to enjoy the slot and to reap the benefits if you land a decent payout using them during the base game. Indeed, the potential for huge wins while playing Isis is what has made this one of the most enduring slots for players to enjoy across a wide range of Microgaming sites.
The house edge is 5%, and it is a high volatility slot, but this brings with it the chance of some seriously big wins.
Helping you achieve those are some of the additional features of the slot. The first is the in game Wild symbol which is the goddess Isis herself. She substitutes for all low and high symbols in the game and when she does to complete a winning payline, you receive a bonus multiplier of 2x the stated win.
The key to the free spins round is the Bird of Prey symbol which when you land three, four or five or more across the reels, triggers 20, 25 or 30 free spins. Five scatters alone gives you a nice big win as well as the promise of much more during free spins.
What really appeals is that in the free spins round you can earn up to a 6x multiplier on up to 30 free spins. That offers the potential for seriously big wins (and the games jackpot is a massive 300,000 coins). Add into this paylines offering four or five of a kind and you can win between 20x and 600x your bet.
However, before you get too excited, it is worth noting that this is a slot that requires players to have a decent bankroll and to be able to manage it effectively. Winning the big money on Isis doesn't come easily and the smaller wins may often not cover your initial bet. However, when the big wins come, they can easily push a player to profit, if they get lucky and manage their bankroll effectively.
In terms of mobile slots, if you like the thrill of playing a non-progressive with the chance of a big money win, Isis certainly fits the bill. It is probably best suited to more experienced players rather than beginners but is one game certainly worth checking out once you have a solid bankroll to play.
