Based on the highly popular theme of Ancient Egypt and immortalized by the old beliefs in the ancient Gods and divine Pharaohs comes the 5-reel and 3-4-5-4-3 row and 720 bet-way slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality by Netent. The slot offers you a remarkable chance to win up to 3,600,000 coins!
Vivid and colourful graphics
The reel configuration is that of 3-4-5-4-3 rows with statues of the upper halves of the Gods Ra and Anubis on the 1st and 5th reels with their jewel encrusted staffs in hand. The slot uses basic poker symbols at the lower paying range with symbols of a cobra, bird and insect, Cleopatra and Pharoah towards the middle and upper range. The slot uses vivid and colourful graphics with symbols that cascade or avalanche down rather than spin. The sound effects and music are thematic and avoid the standard sounds of many other slots.
Ankh wild, avalanche feature with multiplier
The slot offers some very popular features starting with the ankh wild symbol that acts as a replacement for all other symbols. When a symbol lands on the top of the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reels and is involved in a winning payline, it will transform into a wild for the impending avalanche feature. When an avalanche is triggered, a 1x multiplier kicks in and increases by 1x with every 3 successive avalanches up to a maximum of 10x. The symbols involved in a win explode leaving blank spaces creating the conditions for another avalanche to fill in the spaces and this action continues in a loop provided that the wins continue. While the avalanche feature is active, there is no cost to you!
The theoretical return player (RTP) is 96.48% on stakes that range from €0.10 to €10. Payouts are calculated based on the coin wins as illustrated in the paytable multiplied by the size of the line win multiplied by the value of the bet which means up to €360,000! Surprisingly, the variance is not as high as you might think with wins that do occur regularly though with an average win size of around the size of your stake and as you would expect larger wins are much harder to come by. The avalanche feature which effectively is a free spins feature is a great way of increasing the odds of piling up some money with up to 10x multiplier. The graphics and sounds are better than many similar Ancient Egyptian themed slots out there and you can try the slot for free if you would like to get a feel before playing with your hand earned money.
