When you think of ancient Babylon you probably don’t think of Czechia, but that’s where this neat little slot was dreamt up. There’s definitely a bit of that Czech efficiency in here too, with a smart and intuitive playing area that’s free from any distractions or unnecessary decoration.
Its number of paylines may be small but its jackpot is large enough to entice plenty of players, to the extent that the Eye of Babylon casino game is one of the most popular slots in 5Men’s portfolio.
With its 3 rows and 5 reels the game is simple enough that you can simply pick it up and start playing but, if you want to get a feel for how the game works before doing that, you can always check it out in free play mode first. While the game doesn’t take things quite that far – all the info you need to decode winning symbols is available in the paytable – it does boast various Babylonian symbols you’ll need to get familiar with.
Marduk appears, along with his distinctive eye naturally, but you’ll also find stars, gryphons, mermaids, wings and assorted other symbols. Plus, there are some very plain 9s, 10s, Js, Qs, Ks and As thrown into the mix. Overall everything looks great, although the number of symbols seems quite high considering the fairly small number of paylines. There’s nothing too fancy going on here: hit three scatters and you’ll get 12 free spins with a Marduk Wild that upgrades certain symbols. You’ll also get the chance to unlock additional free spins if you land more wilds during the bonus round; 1, 2 and 3 wilds award 1, 3 and 5 free spins respectively.
An Eye of Babylon slot machine has a maximum payout of a cool quarter of a million which is actually pretty impressive. It’s even more remarkable considering that the base jackpot is just 1000 for 5 scatters or Temples. In other words, there’s plenty to play for here and a high RTP of more than 95% means that your bankroll should stretch far enough to let you do so for a while. Even so, one of our Eye of Babylon tips is that it’s often a good idea to cash out and call it quits for the day if you manage to trigger a bonus round relatively early on in a session.
Don’t forget about the Gamble feature, which requires you to guess the color of the card to double your win. Remember that you can play it only 5 consecutive times in a row.
