Wherever you look it doesn’t seem to take that long to find a slot game that has an Egyptian theme to it. IGT have had great success with their Cleopatra games and they’re back on familiar territory here with ‘Treasure of the Pyramids.’ It’s an action packed game that you’ll love playing.
There are five reels in this game and a total of 40 paylines that all offer you chances to get winning combinations. You can play this game from as little as £0.01 all the way up to £400 if you’re a high roller. Simply gamble what you can afford to lose and don’t ruin your enjoyment of playing this game.
At the top of the reels you’ll see some of the treasures of the pyramids with plenty of gold on show. There’s also a black panther and as you’ll discover this plays a major part in this game.
The reels have a dark blue background, not quite sure what that’s got to do with the theme if anything. Symbols in the game include two rings, an Eye of Ra, a cross, pyramids and that black panther. Sadly, there’s the nine to Ace playing card symbols which really is far too many and does nothing to enhance the theme of the game. They do have a small image of one of the different playing card suits but still hardly Egyptian linked. A couple more Egyptian themed symbols would have far better.
There’s a gamble feature in this game which you really need to be a bit wary of. In the base game when you get a winning combination you can gamble it if you want or just refuse and get on with the next spin. If you do have a gamble, it’s the usual playing cards feature. Double a win by guessing the right colour of the next card or quadruple it by guessing the correct suit. All good and well but just try this out with a pack of playing cards and see how difficult it is to keep getting correct choices. Have one go if you must but after that you’re really pushing your luck and can lose some good wins.
Onto that black panther and why he’s so important in this game. This symbol acts as both the wild and the jackpot symbol. It can cover two spaces at the same time and can really help get you some good wins.
The scatter symbol here is the pyramid and is important if you want to get into the bonus game.
To ensure you know as much about the game as possible, don’t forget to have a look at the paytable and game rules. Then after that a few free games will give you some handy experience of what it’s like to play the game before having to risk your real cash balance.
If you can get three of the pyramid symbols anywhere on the reels then this will see you being awarded eight free spins. Four takes that up to 15 and five will see you playing with a fantastic 100 free spins. The fact they can appear anywhere on the reels means you don’t have to keep activating all the paylines to be in with a chance of getting into the bonus game.
Egypt is hardly the most original of themes but it just about works here. More theme based symbols would have been a good idea. The black panther is a good symbol though and can definitely get you some good wins. Playing the bonus game is also profitable, particularly if you are lucky enough to be able to get five pyramids triggering the free spins round.
