Fortunes of Egypt is 5 reels with 25 pay lines slot, which I must say the graphics of the game is really out dated. The main symbols on this game are the Cleopatra, the Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian eye, ancient necklace, the walking Egyptian, Egyptian sail boat, the Sphinx a scroll of papyrus, and the cobra. There are 3 more symbols which are the bonus one the treasure chest, the scatter which is the scarab and the wild symbol which is the Pharaoh.
The Pharaoh symbol being wild one, will substitute all the symbols on the reels, of course expect the scatter, the bonus symbol and of course the Jackpot symbol. The free spins are not so generous, because the first round if you trigger bit only 3 scatter symbols will award the player only 8 free spins, while 4 of them 25 free spins and the best but very hard to be triggered is the 5 scatters anywhere on the reels, which is 100 free spins.
The bonus round is the hardest to be triggered, just because you need to collect 1000 points and you earn those points while you play. Of course playing with a minimum bet won’t give you the bonus round that easily or fast, but placing higher bets will unlock the bonus round feature more faster. So the higher the bet will unlock that bonus feature. The bad thing or I don't like, is that, the bonus symbol which is the treasure chest ,only appears on the 5th reel, but what I have noticed, it doesn't appear that much often, so getting the bonus round will take more time and of course bigger budget.
