There is no doubt that ancient Egypt is presented very well in online slots and the fans of this genre are served better than virtually all the other types of game. The theme started to gain popularity and traction among players in the land-based casino outlets with some of the leading titles going on to become real classics.

This shows that the casino industry’s love affair with ancient theme is storied and long, so it’s not only occurring online.

Netent’s Gonzo’s Quest is perhaps the best example of a game that has reached enormous heights on the international market. By modern standards the game is a bit simple, but it’s now highly rated by many and is an international classic.

Its huge success has also led to the release of the Book of Ra Deluxe, which a refined and updated version of the game that is designed to reach a wider audience.

As expected, none of the leading online slot manufacturers want to miss out on the opportunity to create ancient themed slots which are big hits with casino players.
