Play’n GO Returns To Egypt With New Slot

CEO of Play’n GO Johan Törnqvist said of the slot: “Egyptian themed slots are very popular, and we are always coming up with new ideas, but the most important thing is not to keep releasing the same game over and over again. Each time we create a game with a theme we have used before we ensure that we improve by adding something new or upgrading what was done before.

“Ankh Of Anubis is a perfect example; we switched the focus of the game, used a new format for the grid and came up with creative free spin feature, and players are going to enjoy seeing their favourite theme done in a new way.”
