Type: Video Slot
Mother of Horus by Red Rake Gaming is a great new slot game based on the ever-popular Ancient Egyptian mythology theme.
And to be honest with you, Horus was never one of our favourite old Egyptian Gods. I mean, a giant bird of prey with the body of a human is not something anyone likes to imagine.
But his mother, Isis, is a whole other story, and this new online slot is as hot as the lady herself!! The game grid is not the most complicated we’ve ever seen, with 5 reels and 3 rows. But Red Rake Gaming have taken this simple format and managed to add some original elements to spice things up a bit.
There are 50 paylines on the grid and a few extra features that add a unique twist to the gameplay. The first thing you will notice is that above each reel there’s a Prize Bar with five sections one for each reel. There are also four jackpot tabs, two on each side of the reels. And I’ll tell you more about these later, but first, let us look at the reels themselves.
These are framed by the striped sceptres that the Egyptian Gods had such a thing for. The reels themselves are a dark onyx-like colour which partially reflects the symbols.
Behind the reels, we see the interior of a temple, or maybe it’s a tomb. Egyptian culture was so obsessed with death that it can be hard to tell them apart at times. Anyhow, the walls of the temple/tomb are covered with hieroglyphics, no surprises there, and the space is lit by flaming torches. All in all, it’s very atmospheric, and the creepy soundtrack with the sound of howling wind adds to the spooky feel.
The betting range is good but not huge. Bets start at 0.50 and go up to 35.00. And the volatility is medium, meaning that while you can expect a fair amount of mid-sized payouts, the maximum prize of 2,500 x the stake isn’t going to drop that often.
The symbols on the reels start with card ranks from 10 to Ace, which have been suitably made over to fit the game’s theme. These give small payouts for three of a kind and more, but nothing to get excited about. The maximum you can win with these is 0.7 x the stake for five-of-a-kind of the King or Ace.
There are some beautifully drawn themed symbols as well, which can score some much better prizes. There’s a building, possibly the outside of the temple where the reels are set, a pyramid, Horus, and an Egyptian prince who we’re guessing is Osiris, Horus’s dad and Isis’s old man.
The Scatter in the Mother of Horus is, well, the mother of Horus, Isis. And she’s a very versatile lady. As well as triggering some of the features, she’ll give a payout if you land just two or more. The 50 x the stake payout for five of a kind is one of the top payouts on symbols in the game, matched only by Osiris and the Wild.
The Wild is a red flag with a scarab on it and, in addition to standing in for other symbols, gives its own payout for two or more, as does Osiris. The Wild also acts as a nudge Wild, giving you even more opportunities to form winning combinations by moving up and down the reels.

Bonus Features and Jackpots
While you’re spinning the reels in the base game, Isis will only put in an appearance on reels 1, 3, and 5. But when she does, the prize bar we mentioned earlier comes into play. If Horus’s mum shows up on reel one, the 2 x multiplier in the Prize Bar comes into effect. When she lands on reels 3 and 5, Free Spins are triggered.
The Free Spins round starts with ten free spins. During these, Isis can land on any of the reels; every time she lands on reels 3 and 5, you’ll get two more free spins. If she lands on reels 2 and 4, this will activate the Destiny Roulette mini-game.
The Destiny Roulette bonus is played on a new screen where you’ll spin a roulette wheel for the chance of landing on one of the jackpots. There are four of these as follows, the Mini, which pays 15 x your stake, the Minor at 35 x the stake. The Major at 100 x, and the biggest, the Grand, pays an impressive 500 x the stake.
