This Egyptian themed, 25-payline slot is very interesting and what makes this a little bit curious for me is the displaying form. I think the creators must have compromised whether the game should look real fantastic using great pictorial elements or it must create the possible best authentic environment to the game using such powerful symbols. Looking at the interface maybe the second option came to realize but in my opinion they could do it very well and that’s why we get a little part from first planned perspective, too. I’m meaning here the appearance is still impressive and good looking while it’s one of the more authentic games what I’ve played with around this subject. All visual elements represent the theme well like the function buttons’ decorations, the ancient-like font and number style, the hieroglyph motives on the table and especially the used symbols and their illustration design. We play here with mummies, scarabs, parchments, Pharaoh, Bastet Cat figures so basically all of them are very typically inserted characters but their and generally the whole interface’s main strength is they’re illustrated with light brown colours pretending as if they were covered by sand and when a winning combination is completed only then become the symbols colourful. Probably it’s more powerful and visually more effective while playing the game than speaking about it, but believe me this is really worth to be seen and I like it very much and not just the original idea but its realization method too. All in all, this is a very graphically imaginative interface and a great job from the creators’ part.
The most important thing we must know about this game is we have an option here to win Progressive Jackpot amount.
If 5 Pharaoh symbols form a winning combination the Jackpot amount is won if the triggering spin was play at minimum $5 total bet but if it’s not just 1000 coins are credited. I think that’s understandable to sacrifice something for the hoped grand prize but it’s a little bit much and I also feel that the 1000 times of line bet is a little bit poor for non-Jackpot top win. Unfortunately, the slot doesn’t provide any traditional Wild, free spin features and also isn’t working with any multiplier values, so it’s no wonder that this is really a difficult task to achieve great results and I’m saying that despite the fact that the slot has got 3 other features which consist of one traditional bonus games and two little add-ons which usability is questionable in my opinion.
Besides the Scarab symbol the slot also has Golden Scarab figure too and when this latter arrives anywhere on the reels it may turn any other symbol on the table into a randomly selected other symbol. Because there is no Wild here changing a symbol to another one is not too interesting and very rare times it results any meaningful win so as I see it, this is a very unproductive extra. This same appearing method is valid to Mummy and Golden Mummy characters too, but this time the Golden Mummy remove all 3 symbols on that reels and 3 newcomer pictograms take the positions there creating a new arrangement (it’s similar to the well-known ‘falling down symbol’ mechanism) but just like the mentioned other feature this also can’t bring too much to the table and can’t be too valuable add-on.
To trigger the Pyramid Treasure Hunt bonus game we have to collect 4 parts of Pyramid by the help of appearing Pyramid symbols on the reels. Usually it takes a while until we can build up a pyramid from the 4 elements which is visible on the left bottom corner of the screen but after they gathered we go inside the tomb and have to pick 3 tiles out of 9. All of the selections reveal prizes which may be instant cash prize, extra pick or a map to another pyramid which will be our adventure target next time. This side game is not the most exciting game I’ve ever played but at least the rewarding ability is quite good and I hardly can remember times when I finished the extra with less profits than x35-x45 of my total bet.
Generally, I admire the appearance and visual effects of the game and find them very imaginative and though I wouldn’t have applied that two extras into the game - at least not with this working scheme – and still think a normal working Wild symbol would have been much better but the average payouts and the winning tendency of the base game is acceptable and sometimes it can be considered good but the real deal here of course winning the Jackpot if our balance let us to play with $5 per spin and the Bonus section which really could give out some pleasant surprises. This is a good game and I like to play with even if I think with some little modifications and better little extras the game would have the ability to be a standout product. If someone like this ancient age and like the characteristic emblems of that era mixing with a reliable video slot game, I can suggest trying this game and maybe you’ll like what you experience here.
