They reckon that if you go into a Pharaoh’s tomb there’s a curse put on you. Being in that tomb hasn’t done the Pharaoh much good either has it? There’s no curse playing this slot with software by Novomatic because it gives you some great chances to win plenty of coins so let’s head off to Egypt for another exciting slot game.
This slot game has just the ten pay-lines on its five reels and you don’t have to be playing all of those on each spin of the reels. To set how many you want to activate, you need to press the menu button which is directly above the spinner. While you’re doing that, also decide your stake and the minimum you can stake with all ten pay-lines in play is 0.40 and the highest stake 100. Ensure you play at a level you can afford to lose if lady luck isn’t on your side. It can be played on your PC or mobile devices such as an iPhone.
The symbols in this game are familiar to anyone who has played a slot with an Ancient Egyptian theme There are ancient artefacts such as Scarab Beetles and Ankhs and there’s also a bird as well as some attractive looking Chinese symbols plus the Jack to Ace playing card symbols. If you can get five Scarab Beetles on an activated pay-line that wins you 300x your line bet and it’s 400x for the bird.
The Pharaoh is the wild symbol in this game and it has some special powers. It appears on all the reels and is of the expanding variety so it covers all the reel. With its ability to substitute for other symbols, that means the winning combinations will flow in. It can’t substitute for the scatter symbol as that would increase your chances of triggering the game feature.
In order to trigger the free spins round, you need to get three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels at the end of a spin. Once the free spins begin, any win that contains the wild symbol is upgraded to the next highest winning combination, you don’t see that too often. Each time the wild symbol appears you win more free games and hopefully more cash.
When you get a win in the base game of this Egyptian themed slot, that’s reason to celebrate but do you want to win some more cash? That’s possible if you decide to take up the gamble feature. It’s the usual playing card routine where you need to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card. Get the choice right and your win is doubled and there’s four more chances available. A wrong guess wipes out your win so it’s best to reserve this for small wins.
Find out as much as you can about this game before playing it for real cash. How do you do that? Well, go to the paytable where there’s lots of details about how the game runs. This includes where all the pay-lines are, how much winning combinations pay out and the rules for the bonus games/wild and scatter symbols. Also have some free Pharaoh’s Tomb slot games to see how everything works.
Responsible gambling is very important and it’s not all about how much you stake. Novomatic’s Reality Check Interval will help you with this. It’s required to be filled in before you can play the game. You are required to set a time interval after which the game is suspended to show how you are getting on financially. Then the gambler can decide whether to quit or carry on playing. It’s a good responsible gambling tool and it’s a good idea to take heed of the information provided.
There are other slot games that can be played at online casinos that have similar gameplay to ‘Pharaoh’s Tomb.’ Try playing ‘Rainbow Reels’ which has also been released by Novomatic. The theme is Irish this time but there’s also ten pay-lines available and also of medium variance with the chance to trigger a free spins round. Also have a go at ‘Lord of the Ocean’, also from Novomatic, which has a medium to high variance but also has ten pay-lines, a free spins round and gives gamblers the opportunity to double wins in the gamble feature.
Another trip to Egypt for the Pharaoh’s Tomb video slot and again it’s an enjoyable slot to play. It’s a colourful slot but the symbols don’t really present us with anything new. There are some good wins to be had here but you do need to get in the free spins round for the wins to go into overdrive, especially if you are able to get some more to play with. As usual the advice re the gamble feature is to use it sparingly or be in danger of losing some good wins.
