Jewel Scarabs Review

Scarab is one of the most famous symbols of Ancient Egypt. The Egyptians believed that the beetle follows the path of the sun, rolling a ball of egg-laying from east to west until the larvas mature. It has been worshiped as a sacred insect of Ra and as a symbol of the creative power of the luminary, rebirth in the afterlife. Jewelry of scarab shape still exists.

Golden beetles of the Jewel Scarabs slot are wild symbols. They don't crawl but fly to another position after each win. Wilds will disappear after a loss in the main game but remain at the screen during free spins.

Play Jewel Scarabs

Online casinos invite the gamblers to stake from as little as 2 cents to as much as 10 euro/dollars per line on Jewel Scarabs.

The slot won't make you study the rules, as it is an instant-play. However, it has some features, which may affect the player's choice.

Key features:

  • 5 reels, 3 rows of symbols;
  • 9 fixed active lines;
  • All combinations must begin from the leftmost reel;
  • At least 3 same symbols needed to land a combination;
  • All winning combinations formed during a single round will pay.

As usually, only the highest-value combination at each line plays.

You are welcome to use the autoplay feature and quick spin to make yourself comfortable playing Jewel Scarabs. A gamble feature is not provided.

You will land 9 regular and 1 special symbol (the scarab) on the reels. The scarab combines the functions of wild (substitutes), scatter (pays regardless of the active lines) and bonus (triggers free spins).

Now let's the break out the main game:

  1. If Scarab has been included in a combination, it doesn't leave the screen but flies to another position. Theoretically, it can stay on the reels forever.
  2. However, it never lands on the adjacent cell. Meaning, if you've landed the scarab on the first or second reel, it shall move to the third or fourth in the following spin. That makes repeating win harder.
  3. No respins after the win.
  4. You can hit 2 or 3 scarabs in one spin. However, chances are 1:30.

The producer has announced a high hit rate (over 70%).

Design and color choice of Jewel Scarabs are perfect, as well as in other slots of this brand. The wide color pallet is the reason for the forced rejection of animation. The soundtrack is traditionally minimalistic, but you will hear Arabic melody in the background.

See the screenshots below.

Jewel Scarabs Symbols, Wild, Scatter

The scarab plays part of the wild, scatter and free spins trigger at the same time. As a substituting symbol it has the following advanced features:

  • Sticks to the position after each win;
  • Moves by the reels;
  • Increases payoffs by combinations, but only during free spins.

As a scatter, 5 scarabs will bring you a payoff regardless of the active lines. 3 of them will trigger free spins.

You will also land 4 gods and 10 to A faces in style of sacred signs.

Few examples of the wins by 1 euro bet per spin;

  • A combination of 5 tens will help you pocket 18x the line bet (2 euro);
  • Hit 5 aces and pocket 45x the line bet (5 euro);
  • A combination of 5 Anubis or 5 scarabs will bring you 180x your line bet (20 euro).

Jewel Scarabs free spins

Golden Spins of Jewel Scarabs can be triggered in 2 ways:

  1. When 3 scarabs land on the reels in the same round;
  2. When you accumulate 3 scarabs on the screen during the winning session.

You will always get 8 free spins which can't be retriggered.

Let's break it out:

  1. Scarab becomes a wild symbol.
  2. 3 scarabs, which have triggered the feature, remain at the screen for the duration of free spins. They will fly over the positions in each round.
  3. If one of the beetles helps making a combination, it is marked with an extra multiplier, higher after every payout.
  4. If 2 or 3 scarabs play in one combination, their values are multiplied. The realistically attainable extra multiplier is 12x to 15x, but theoretically, it may reach 125x.

Another feature of Jewel Scarabs is Extra Spin, which happens when another scarab lands on the reels (fourth or fifth) during free spins. Chances are 1:10.

New Zealand Mobile version

Affiliation with NetEnt in late 2019 didn't help Red Tiger to fix critical failures in their mobile slots. It usually happens when changing the screen orientation, entering the full-screen mode or moving to a worse coverage zone. What else should we say when even the demo version of Jewel Scarabs at the official website lags? When playing in an online casino, failure happens during the first 5-7 seconds. Moreover, all wins reset to zero in case of any lag. However, it doesn't affect the loss.

If you hope to play for a few minutes and spin a dozen, we should warn you: Jewel Scarabs has no 'Quit' button! You will have to click 'Back' multiple times.

Testing parameters: 2Gb, 3G (75-100%), Android 8.1, Google Chrome.

Conclusion

Jewel Scarabs might be appealing due to promotion in all top casinos. However, it has no significant gaming features and in case is an ordinary product of Red Tiger.

Pros:

  • Excellent design;
  • High maximum potential 5245x;
  • High hit rate over 70%.

Cons:

  • Lags on smartphones;
  • Max potential profit is theoretically possible during free spins only, It is 180x in the main game;
  • 7 free spins;
  • 3 or 4 scatters will not pay;
  • Flaws and typos in language options.

Red Tiger has announced high volatility of this slot along with the RTP of 95.77%.
