Pyramids of Giza is a Barcrest-powered slot with 5 reels and 10 paylines. Ready to play from 10p to £500 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices including iOS and Android, this simple ancient Egyptian game is all about the free spins feature where up to 20 free spins can be won.

Visually, Pyramids of Giza is relatively simple – with what looks like the Red Sea in the backdrop, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as lotus flowers, scarab beetles and the Eye of Ra. The sphinx is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols bar the scatter – it’s also the most rewarding giving you 1, 10, 100 or 250 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 across a payline.

The other symbol to keep an eye out for is the pyramid scatter which appears only on reels 1, 3 and 5 – when it appears on those 3 reels simultaneously, you’ll trigger the Pyramids of Giza Free Spins feature. Here, you’ll receive 10 free spins. During the feature, the scatter substitutes for all symbols. You can also retrigger the feature giving you 20 free spins in total.

Now, your chances of winning big will depend on how big your stake is – if playing at less than £2 per spin, the Return to Player % is 94%. If playing at £2 or more per spin, the Return to Player % goes up to 96%. Either way, getting a screen full of wilds will reward you with a cool 2,500 times your stake – this can occur in the base game or on any free spin.

Pyramids of Giza is simple in appearance and that is true in terms of gameplay – there’s only 1 bonus feature but the win potential is the same throughout. It’s a decent game but there are much better ancient Egyptian themed offerings out there. I quite like Book of Ra Magic from Novomatic and Ark of Mystery from Quickspin.
