There are 3 versions of the game entitled 'Pharaoh's Tomb', all from different game providers, so if you're wondering which version this review is on, it's the one from Microgaming. Although the name may be the same, the game isn't. Each one plays differently. Which game is better, I wouldn't know, because this is the only version that I have played so far. It's an old game, with an Egyptian Pharaoh's theme, and with an Egyptian background scenario. For an old game, the quality of its graphics need not be commented on too much, but suffice to say, it isn't nice by today's standards.

The Pharaoh is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pays nothing. Yep, nothing, because only 2 of them can appear at any one time, and that would be on reel 1 and 5. A pharaoh appearing on reel 1 pays 2x the total bet amount. Oh gees! That's all a player can get from the Wild symbols? Yep, only one blardy Wild on reel 1 that pays. The one appearing on reel 5 is an absolute dumb! The Wild symbol doubles all wins and substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol. Hmm, like it would make much difference at all! The Scarab is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays the usual 100x the total bet amount. Getting 3 or more of these Scatters trigger The Pharaoh's Tomb Bonus Feature. The Professor pays 3000x, the Sphinx pays 1000x, the Bag and the Map both pays 500x, whilst the rest pay from 200x down to 100x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. A very low paytable.

In the Pharaoh's Tomb Bonus Feature, there are 3 Tombs to pick from. Once inside the Tomb, there are 3 Sarcophagus with a hidden key in one of them. Pick one to find the key. If successful, a random prize is awarded and you go into the next Tomb. If the key is not found, you get paid 2x your bet amount as a consolation prize and the feature ends. If you managed to find all the 3 keys, a 100x your total bet amount is awarded. Sheesh! What a boring feature game, I must say, with the possibility of ending it all on the first wrong pick! That's like getting only 1 free spin from a Free Spins game, with a maximum of only 3 free spins. Why bother with this feature game at all?! A regular Free Spins game would have been so much more better and more interesting to play.


In actual play, as far as I know, that is, the first pick inside the Tomb would always find the key. The second and third pick may not. So, like I've said earlier on, this blardy Bonus feature game could end after just 1 successful pick. Yep, it happened to me in one of the Bonus games, and that sucked! The other 2 games ended after finding the second key. The payouts I got were nothing more than 35x my bet amount, and those were really disappointing, considering how much more it had eaten prior to awarding the Bonus game.

Pharaoh's Tomb is one of the most boring game in the entire collection of Microgaming games. In fact, honestly speaking, about half of Microgaming games had failed to get a passing rate from me! Hence I've never liked Microgaming on the whole.

I played Pharaoh`s Tomb Slot once when I had only 3 euros on my balance. This slot has given me credits and I have to say that I really appreciate that. Since I did not have much choice I played this game with min bet. After couple of spins I opened the free spins round and very soon I opened the bonus round too. I had some wins, not very big though but still this gave me a room to breathe.

Another Microgaming slot with 5 reels and 20 pay lines where you can search for the treasures that were buried together with the Pharaohs in ancient Egypt. You have lots and lots of opportunities to win in this game because the slot has a top jackpot of 3000 coins that can be increased up to 6000 coins. The wild symbol in this game is the Pharaoh. The wild can substitute any other symbol except the scatter to make a winning combination. This icon only appears on two reels and they are reels 1 and 5. The scatter symbol is the Scarab. If you get 2 or more scatter symbols all your bet will be multiplied by 2, 5, 20 or even 100.

The Pharaoh`s Tomb Bonus Game is activated with 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels. Once you open the bonus feature you have to go through 3 tombs to win the treasure. In each tomb there are 3 sarcophagi and there is a key hidden in only one of them. You have to find the key and to get into the next tomb. If you find the key you are also awarded with a prize. If you manage to find all 3 keys you will get the best prize here and that is 100 x bet. This game is great for people who like to play with max bet because you can get up to 40 000 euros in this bonus game.

Now that I think about it, Pharaoh's Tomb is a one time visit for me so I don't think this would be a great guide for all of you who are new to this video slot. Pharaoh's Tomb is a 20 paylines video slot taking place in an Egyptian theme. You will face grains of sand rushing in your face as you dig deeper and deeper. As you wipe them away your face expresses in an unexplainable state of happiness when beautiful artifacts, held in your hands, were revealed by your digging efforts. Haha now I sound like an author of some kind.

The 3 scattered scarabs are what to look for to start looking for keys in the 3 tomb searching rounds. Each key will award a mystery prize amount and enter the next tomb. 3 tomb rounds total! Just listening to the bonus music is almost like listening to music in an elevator, it's quite light to my ears. If there is no key found in your choice of any of the 3 tombs in any round then it means you blew your chance of the very nice 100x win now sleeping for another 100 years! The best part is if the 3 keys are located by YOU to bring about a very successful payout of 100x! That being said, who can argue about that win!


I would recommend not chasing the bonus feature. If your good luck is really high when you hit the bonus round you may even find the Pharaoh's treasure for 100x your total bet. For the unfortunately it's not worth pushing your bets just to hit this bonus because the returns aren't pretty great. I have only gotten to the 2nd tomb only to receive $8 (8x) from my $1 triggering bet.

There is also nothing great happening in the base game. I wouldn't recommend Pharaoh's tomb. It grants alright payouts, the bonus game is well short-lived and it's very hard to grab the grand prize of 100x! For the Free spins enthusiasts, you will only see an illusion of free spins but not the real thing. Haha there aren't any.
