Pharaoh’s Treasure Slot Review
Pharaoh’s Treasure features 5 reels and 20 paylines and has an ancient Egyptian theme (like many others). You will notice that it’s quite similar layout wise (like the buttons for example) to IGT’s classic Pharaoh’s Fortune slot. Pharaoh’s Treasure consists of 2 bonus round and a gamble feature which one of the bonus rounds possibly leading to the progressive jackpot. In terms of betting ranges, you can play all 20 paylines for as little as 20p and as much as £200 a spin.
Anyway, it comes with a 3,000 coin jackpot (not the progressive) which you can activate by getting 5 Pharaoh’s Treasure wild symbols. The other key symbol is the Gold Mask symbols as 3 to 5 of them will initiate entry into the Tutankhamen’s Tomb Bonus game. You will then see the tomb filled with treasures which are highlighted with the torch flashing upon them. Remember where they are as you will have up to 5 attempted to find the treasures. The number of attempts you get is directly correspondent to the number of Gold Mask symbols you get to trigger the feature. You will win cash prizes here but you can also trigger the progressive jackpot if you find 3 Tutankhamen Gold Masks. Good luck!
Then there’s the Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered by getting 3, 4 or 5 Scarab Beetle symbols across the reels. You are guaranteed wins here before the feature even starts! The prize you get is dependent on the number of Scarab Beetle symbols you get to trigger the feature – for example, if you are lucky enough to trigger the free spins feature with 5 symbols, expect between 50 and 150 times your stake. Once the prize has been awarded, you will start with 10 free spins with all wins trebled. You can retrigger an extra 10 free spins by getting 3 or more Scarab Beetles. As an added bonus, you can gain entry into the Tutankhamen’s Tomb Bonus game from the free spins round.
Finally, there is a Gamble feature too where you need to guess the card colour or suit to win double or quadruple your bet. Pharaoh’s Treasure is a good slot game and has better features than the popular Pharaoh’s Fortune. However, the sizeable wins in the IGT classic cannot be matched. If you like Egyptian-themed slots, you can’t go wrong with Novomatic’s Book of Ra Deluxe which is high variance.
