I am pretty sure this game has been rebranded as a game called "Sphinx Wild", at least in pennsylvania online casinos.



the description goes like so

In accordance with fair gaming practices required in most legal jurisdictions worldwide, each and every game outcome is completely independent, except in cases where one spin unlocks a feature for a subsequent spin or series of spins, per the game rules. The odds of getting any particular outcome are always the same.

The odds do not vary based on prior outcomes, bet size, time of day, day of week, etc. For example, if the top award is won on a play, the chances of winning the top award on the next play are exactly the same. Likewise, prior losses do not change future odds.

The expected payback reflects the theoretical return across a very large number of plays by numerous players over an extended period of time.
For this game, the long-term, theoretically expected payback is from 92.20% to 96.18% . The results for any given player over a play session can vary widely from this long-term, expected average in either direction. The fewer the number of games played, the wider the normal variance of actual payback may be experienced.

The expected payback value is also based upon correct player choices for any games which involve main game and/or bonus game play strategy.

The maximum win on any transaction including the results of the Free Spins Bonus, plus the outcome which launched the bonus, is capped at 25000000.00.

The Free Spins Bonus is triggered when three or more appear anywhere on the reels. The player is presented with four options of free spins and multipliers. The available options depend on how many Bonus symbols were present on the reels when the bonus was triggered.

If this was true there would not be a line at the IGT machine.

I looked for some golden Egypt the other night and found quite a few opportunities where the fourth reel was wild for the next two spins. The rest of the opportunities were already played off. Ugh.

The wizard doesn't cover this in his article. Is it possibly +EV to play those 4th reel Wild spins off? I have tried sometimes, and I'm not very convinced one way or the other.

I don't know for sure, but I don't play them. I think they are negative, but best case ontario is that you are putting money in and then finding a machine to cash out so that you can do 2 spins with an ev of a couple pennies.

A standing wild in the last two reels is marginal at best.

On a related note, I was watching people play a WOF game recently with the same mechanic as Egypt and when a guy got a nice hit and wanted to get up. I overheard a civilian explain to the guy on the that he wants to take the next spin because it is a guaranteed winner. The guy was so confused... He just didn't understand how the game he was playing worked. Even ploppies learn... That's the problem with GE now... It's been out for 4+ years... I see little old ladies picking though the bets before they start hammering until they lose.

The way I did my analysis is to find those situations where the next spin is positive EV. It's possible that some slightly negative situations on the next spin could be overall positive EV if considering the possibility that bubbles will appear on the first three reels. However, I think such situations would be marginal and high in variance.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I've never seen a bubble show up on Golden Egypt.

I was always amazed at the passion with which some gamblers are looking for various vulnerabilities, bugs, holes, free opportunities to win, free money, simple fraud, cheat; They want a free ticket to paradise, but they themselves do not do anything.

The reality is that among the gambler- jackals a lot of, but professionals-advantage who work with the head using math there are very few

Have you ever decided to go shopping on a specific day because the supermarket offered a buy one get one free special?

would you consider yourself a jackal because you sought something for free on the advertised day? would you consider yourself a fraudster and a cheat?

If you knew someone who went shopping at the same place on a different day and paid full price for an item you got for free on a sale day would you feel they were doing the better thing, paying more than you?
