Shadow Gods Slots

No one sounds more shadowy than the Shadow Gods, who appear to be the focus for this slot game. Make sure you are ready to play for a while too, because this is one of the most exciting games we’ve encountered from this developer. (We’ll reveal who is responsible in a moment.)

This is a great example of how even the most popular theme can still be taken to a new level when the work is put in. Are you going to put in the work to read our review and play this slot game too?

Developer information for Shadow Gods slots

No doubt you know about Realtime Gaming, also referred to as RTG. Either way, they are behind the creation and release of this game.

A reliable demo sits alongside the real version

The demo is identical to the real thing, except you’ve got practice credits to use instead of your own cash. That means no real prizes are available, but you do still get the full experience.

Gods provide the theme here

But where do those gods hail from? Greece? The Norse lands? Neither… we are returning to ancient Egypt to meet Horus and Anubis. Those names might be familiar to you, but you’ll see them here and no doubt marvel at their appearance, just as we did.

A beautiful and striking design is in place

It’s hard not to be impressed by the design of this game. The colors, the sharp graphics, the icons… everything looks spectacular. You should sit and appreciate it for a while before diving in. We did.

How to play the Shadow Gods online slot

The game begins with a formula that works – five reels and three rows of symbols spread over them. The game cannot be included in RTG’s collection of progressive slots though, so we are limited to the prizes displayed in the paytable. We’ll come to that bit shortly.

Horus and Anubis have important jobs to do in this game. They both behave as substitutes and are limited to their own reels. Horus is on the second reel and Anubis is on the fourth. The gods stand three symbols high as well. If one should appear and occupy just part of the reel, it is nudged to ensure it then covers the entire thing.

Gold coins commonly show up over the reels. They appear with a random amount shown on them and are required for another part of the slot. The coins aren’t scatters though – that role is taken over by the mask of the Pharaoh. That one is hard to miss.

Paylines in Shadow Gods

There are 50 adjustable paylines in this game. It’s best to go for a cheaper wager to cover all those lines, otherwise you could miss a prize that lands on an unpaid one.

Bets to consider

It might surprise you to see the cheapest coin is valued at four cents. The 50-line format means covering all of them would cost two dollars. There are other coins too, meaning this slot is aimed more at the players who have larger budgets to work with.

Find out everything you need to know in the paytable

The paytable is filled with information on every portion of the game. When you load the game and you are ready to give it a try, take a moment to check out the paytable first.

Find some gold coins to trigger the bonus round

Six gold coins are needed for this round to begin. They can appear anywhere and will then remain in their positions for the start of the bonus. This provides you with three respins of the remaining icons in view.

The idea is that whenever new gold coins appear in those respins, two things happen. Firstly, new gold coins are frozen along with the originals. Secondly, the respins reset to three remaining.

Eventually, you’ll reach the end of the respins. By this time, one of two things might have occurred. The first outcome would be that you’ve got between six and 14 gold coins showing on the reels. Since each one shows an amount, all displayed amounts are totaled and awarded as your prize.

The second outcome would involve filling all positions with the coins. In that case, you can get ready to receive the Grand Prize…

The slot also contains free games

Find three or more Pharaoh’s mask scatter symbols to get started with six free spins. You’ve got a choice of how to play them, too:

• Choose Horus and Anubis as expanded wilds on reels two and four for all six spins • Choose Treasure Spins with all positions on reel five occupied by gold coins

Both are good to play. The second option obviously means a further three coins would need to be located during your free games to enter the bonus feature. Whichever option you choose, a retrigger is available.

RTP value remains unknown

If you know a thing or two about RTG slots, you’ll know a clear value is rarely released alongside the game.

Our rating for the Shadow Gods slot game

This would earn 10 out of 10 from us if RTG had invested in a 3D presentation. We’re going to deduct a half point because of that, so it still gets a great score of 9.5 out of 10.

Secure up to 50,000x your wager

That is confirmed as the best available prize on one successful spin.

Play Shadow Gods in demo mode first

This is a great way to immerse yourself in the world of ancient Egypt before you play for real.

Make sure you can afford the real version

Before switching to real play, consider the two-dollar wager you are required to use for covering all 50 lines.
