About Golden Osiris Slot
The background of Golden Osiris is the tomb hidden beneath a pyramid, and the reels are set on the very entrance of the tomb. Two stone pillars with shining hieroglyphs are on both sides of the grid, while beneath we have desert sand, with statues and ornaments placed upon it.
The game boasts exceptional graphics and a very good soundtrack, as we have come to expect from Play’n Go who are responsible for classics like Book of Dead and Reactoonz 2. The cells are made of stone tiles that fall down on each spin and one of three major deities from Ancient Egypt will always keep you company as you play – Osiris, Bastet, and Horus.
RTP, Variance and Top Payout
The RTP of Golden Osiris is a decent 96.21%, whilst the betting level starts at 10p and is suitable for all kinds of players. On the other hand, the volatility is rather high, so you should expect infrequent returns and slow action until you hit a winning streak in the main bonus free spins round. If you are patient enough, you could be rewarded for your trouble with a tasty win of as much as 12,000x bet.
Symbols and Paytable
Apart from Osiris, Bastet and Anubis, the reels include scarabs, ankh, and four gemstones that act as low value symbols. These four gemstones will deliver between 3x and 4x if you land a winning cluster of 15 or more matching icons.
As for the premium symbols, the scarab delivers the most at 50x bet for the biggest cluster, while Osiris, ankh, Bastet, and Anubis will get you between 25x and 8x for clusters of 15 or more. The eye of Ra is the Scatter that will trigger the Free Spins feature, while Wilds appear beneath the winning symbols, substituting for regular icons to form winlines and boosting wins with multipliers.
Gameplay and Features
Cascading Reels Feature
Every time you land a winning cluster, the winning symbols will disappear and make room for new ones to land and form new winning clusters. This process repeats until no new clusters are formed. Anyone who has played Gonzo’s Quest or the Megaways™ slots will be familiar with this feature.
Pyramid Charger Feature
Pyramid Charger is closely connected with the cascading reels. Every time you land winning clusters, the winning symbols will charge the Pyramid Meter, which is placed on the right side stone pillar. To fully charge the Meter, you need 25 winning symbols at once. Non-winning cascades reset the Charger to zero in the base game.
Players can charge the Pyramid multiple times, and the Pyramid can deliver multipliers up to 30x. If the Pyramid is charged, it reveals a randomly chosen symbol after a non-winning cascade, then the matching symbols on the grid will turn surrounding icons into the same symbol, in clusters up to 4.
At the end you will then get a payout based on the clusters and the multiplier from the Pyramid.
Hidden Wilds Feature
Hidden Wilds are also closely connected with cascading reels as well. Wilds are hidden beneath the grid and their positions are highlighted on the reels. They are placed at random positions on each cascade. If you make a winning combination on a highlighted symbol, the Wild beneath will be revealed, carrying a multiplier up to 10x. And with each new cascade, six new Wilds are placed at random positions.
Second Chance Bonus Feature
Two Scatters on the reels will not trigger the feature but will deliver a Second Chance Bonus feature instead. Cells that occupy neighbouring positions around Scatters will explode, and, hopefully, new icons that land will deliver an additional Scatter for the Free Spins feature to be triggered.
Free Spins Feature
To get 5 free spins, three or more Scatters must land, and when the spins start, the Pyramid will be fully charged. And, to give you even more chance of scoring big wins, the Pyramid displays only premium symbols during this feature.
Golden Osiris is a classic high variance machine from Play n Go and it exhibits all the best features of games that can deliver blockbuster payout experiences driven by cumulative wins with exciting multiplier and free spins combos. In short, it’s everything we love about high risk gambling. But of course, it comes with the warning that not all sessions will feature these thrilling moments. Beware of high variance games like this because you can face a lot of frustrating runs too. If you do gake Osiris for a spin, good luck, and gamble responsibly.
