Pyramid Fortunes is another ancient Egyptian themed slot from Novomatic – with 5 reels and an All Pays game engine, you can play from 50p to £5 a spin on all devices. It comes with a doubling wild, free spins with only high value symbols and 4 jackpots.
Visually, Pyramid Fortunes is set within an ancient Egyptian pyramid – it looks rather good. With a soundtrack that deserves to be part of a movie, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 card values as well as scarab beetles, Ankh crosses, rings and Horus falcons. Then you have a female pharaoh who is the most rewarding symbol – 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will give you 1, 3 or 12 times your stake.
Pyramid Fortunes comes with 2 wilds – the blue wild substitutes for all symbols bar the red wild and appears only on reels 2 and 4. The red wild substitutes for all symbols but only appears on reel 3 – when its part of a winning combination, you’ll benefit from a 2x multiplier.
You’ll notice there’s a pyramid bonus scatter symbol – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 5, 10 or 50 times your stake as well as triggering the Free Games feature with 10 free spins. Furthermore, only high value symbols appear meaning no A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols for higher winning potential. You can also retrigger the feature various times for more free spins.
Back to the wilds – if both the blue and/or red wilds appear, there is a chance the Jackpot feature will randomly be activated. You will see 12 items – each of them revealing a Jackpot gem. Once you find 3 identical ones, you will win that respective progressive jackpot. You have the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand Jackpots – the latter starts at £5,000.
Pyramid Fortunes may be another ancient Egyptian themed slot (there are literally 100s to choose from) – variance wise, it’s high. With a screen full of pharaohs, you’ll win 600 times your stake. Get red wilds on reel 3 and that doubles to 1,200 times your stake on each spin/free spin.
It’s a decent slot but there’s not enough in the base game/Free Games feature to make this a standout in a very crowded genre – I would rather play Book of Ra Magic, by Novomatic, which offers much bigger potential wins on each spin/free spin.
