IGT’s Pyramidion Slot Review

Pyramidion is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot powered by IGT – playable from 20p to £200 a spin on all devices, you get to behold the power and mystery of ancient Egypt (again) in this high variance adventure. It comes with 4 modifiers in the bae game that give you wilds, symbol stacks, wild reels and 3x3 symbols. There’s also 2 free spins with lightning bolt wilds as well as a wild reel with an increasing multiplier.

Simply designed, you will see Egyptian pyramids in the background – symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as 2 flowers, snakes, scarab beetles and suns. There’s also a wild which is the most rewarding symbol – 2, 3, 4 or 5 across a payline will give you 0.25, 2.5, 10 or 50 times your stake. It also replaces all symbols bar the pyramid, Bonus and 2 scatter symbols.

Pyramidion comes with a Free Respin Modifier feature – this is played when you get 2 or more pyramid scatters on the reels. The more pyramid scatters you get when triggering the feature, the richer and more plentiful the extras. Anyway, you’ll receive 1 of the following extras for 1 respin:

  • Sunbeam Wilds – Sunbeam are shot down from the sky adding multiple wilds to the reels
  • Waterfall Stacks – Waterfalls flow over multiple reels to give you full stacks of the same symbol
  • Obelisk Wilds – Obelisks rise from the ground giving you multiple wild reels
  • Mighty Reel – the 3 middle reels (2, 3 and 4) transform into 1 giant reel containing 3x3 blocks of symbols

Then you have the Tomb of Power Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered when you get a Bonus scatter on reels 1 and 3 as well as the Tomb of Power symbol on reel 5. With 8 free spins awarded, the Power Wilds meter begins at 0 and increases by 1 each time the reels spin. Each time a lightning bolt appears, a number of adjacent symbols equal to the value shown in the Power Wilds meter are transformed into lightning bolts – you’ll also get another free spin. The lightning bolt is wild during the feature and replaces all symbols.

Lastly, there’s the Tomb of Mystery Free Spins Bonus feature which is activated when you see the Bonus scatter on reels 1 and 3 as well as the Tomb of Mystery symbol on reel 5. Once in, a wild reel with a 2x multiplier appears on reel 5 throughout the feature. Once a free spin takes place, the wild reel will either remain on the current reel with the multiplier value increasing by 1 or it moves to the next reel (reel 4) – it will keep the same multiplier value. The free spins continue until the wild reel has move across all reels and the mini-reel stop icon is displayed above reel 1.

Pyramidion may not be much to look at but it’s highly volatile and can give you huge wins. The most you can win from a base game spin or a free spin in the Tomb of Power Free Spins Bonus feature is 1,000 times your stake (if you fill the reels with wilds).

However, it’s all about the Tomb of Mystery Free Spins Bonus feature as the increasing multiplier can work its magic and give you wins worth of the ancient Gods. With a 2x multiplier, you could win up to 2,000 times your stake – if it reaches 10x for example, you could benefit from payouts up to 10,000 times your stake.

As mentioned, Pyramidion is high variance so you need to tread carefully. Overall, a great slot by IGT which will definitely appeal to lovers of ancient Egypt. If you fancy something less volatile with good bonus features, IGT’s Action Jack should do the trick.
