Scarab is one of the most famous symbols of Ancient Egypt. The Egyptians believed that the beetle follows the path of the sun, rolling a ball of egg-laying from east to west until the larvas mature. It has been worshiped as a sacred insect of Ra and as a symbol of the creative power of the luminary, rebirth in the afterlife. Jewelry of scarab shape still exists.
Golden beetles of the Jewel Scarabs slot are wild symbols. They don't crawl but fly to another position after each win. Wilds will disappear after a loss in the main game but remain at the screen during free spins.

Affiliation with NetEnt in late 2019 didn't help Red Tiger to fix critical failures in their mobile slots. It usually happens when changing the screen orientation, entering the full-screen mode or moving to a worse coverage zone.

Moreover, all wins reset to zero in case of any lag. However, it doesn't affect the loss.
If you hope to play for a few minutes and spin a dozen, we should warn you: Jewel Scarabs has no 'Quit' button! You will have to click 'Back' multiple times.
