Take a trip to the Valley of the Kings and hunt for hidden Egyptian treasure in Pharao’s Riches. The chief attraction in this 5 reel, 30 payline slot is the bonus feature which offers up to 200 free spins complete with stacked wilds. Head to the desert from between 30p and £60 per spin.
The design in Pharao’s Riches has a classical look – with the majestic pyramids in the background, the reels include lower value playing cards alongside a gem encrusted bracelet and an ankh cross which award between 30 and 250 times your line bet.
Next comes the Scarab Beetle – 3, 4 or 5 of these will get you 30, 150 or 500 coins. Top of the lot is the Tutankhamun-style Pharao’s burial mask – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll win 5, 50, 200 or even 1,000 times your line bet. The diamond is the game’s wild – it doesn’t offer any pays but will replace all other symbols with the exception of the scatter.
The pyramids symbol is the scatter and the key to unlocking the Free Games feature – land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels and you’ll win 10, 25 or even 100 free spins. Boosting you chances of landing a big winning combination is the addition of a stacked wild which can land on any reel on any spin. You can retrigger up to 100 extra free spins during the feature so hope to see those pyramids slide into view.
Pharao’s Riches is simple fare – visually, it’s rather nicely done. There’s nothing flashy on show but the imagery is easy on the eye. You could say the same for the extras on offer too. There’s nothing new or fresh to report.
If you land the feature with 5 scatters, you won’t be complaining though as the 100 free spins with stacked wilds can deliver some impressive treasure. This isn’t the most innovative trip to the desert you’ll make. The design and bonus rounds are both rather basic but it’s entertaining enough.
It may not be a thing of beauty but if you get lucky with the free spins, there are riches on offer in this ancient kingdom. If you like ancient Egypt, I suggest you head over to Quickspin’s Phoenix Sun which is innovative and offers impressive wins in the feature.
