Legend of the Pharaohs is a Barcrest-powered slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines. Playable on all devices (such as iPads, iPhones and Android) from 20p to £500 per spin, it is an ancient Egyptian themed game with a Big Bet feature and free spins with plenty of extras.

Visually, it has cartoon style graphics and is quite simple – symbols on the reels including low value Egyptian hieroglyphs, a wild and scatter symbol. You can form winning combination for getting 3 or more symbols on adjacent reels (from left to right).

Legend of the Pharaohs is all about the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 or more pyramid scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. 3 gives you 10 free spins with 1 bonus extra whilst 4 gives you 10 free spins with 2 bonus extra. If you get 5 scatters, you will also get 10 free spins but with 3 bonus extras.

The bonus extras include Colossal Symbols meaning that 1 symbol is randomly picked to become a 3×3 colossal symbol that covers the 9 positions on the 3 middle reels. This stays in place for all free spins or if another bonus extra is awarded. Then you have the Win Eliminators where the low value symbols are remove from the reels – starting with the 10 and so forth. Up to 5 low value symbols can be removed for bigger wins.

Then you have the Wild Reels where the wild turns into a wild reel for the duration of the feature. Finally, you have Wild symbols where 1 symbol is randomly picked to transform into a wild.

Look out for 1, 2 or 3 pyramid scatters landing during the feature as this will gives you a feature retrigger with 1, 2 or 3 bonus extras. You will be rewarded with a new number of free spins along with up to 3 bonus extras! You can always continue with the current number of free spins and bonus extra or exchange it for more free spins with another bonus extra.

There is also a Big Bet feature which is commonly found in Barcrest slots – for a higher price, you get 5 linked spins. Here are the options:

  • The £20 option sees you collect pyramids to get 5 free spins with each extra pyramid giving you another 5 free spins.
  • The £30 option sees pyramids collected to win free spins. Look out for 2 feature symbols as this triggers the Pharaoh’s Bonus feature. You get to spin the wheel to win cash bonuses, a trigger feature or game ending segment.
  • The £40 option works the same as the £20 and £30 options but there’s a Super Pharaoh’s feature! The wheel appears where you can win bigger cash prizes and entry to the free spins feature is easier.
  • The £50 option works the same as the previous options but with the Mega Pharaoh’s feature active – the prizes on offer are now even bigger and the Free Spins feature segment is also bigger.

One thing to note is that the return to player % (RTP) is higher (at 98.1%) if playing using the Big Bet feature whereas it’s 96.1% in the normal mode.

Medium variance, it’s all about the Free Spins feature with up to 3 bonus features – the key to winning big is to trigger the feature with 4 or 5 scatters so you can benefit from 2 or 3 bonus extras. I particularly like the Colossal Symbols and Wild Reels – if you get a wild as the colossal symbol as well as a wild reel, expect huge wins! I also recommend you take a look at Lady of Egypt by WMS which has the same theme but an innovative concept.
