Enter the ancient pyramids in search of vast fortunes on the slot from Pragmatic Play. To this day, Egyptian pyramids symbolize mystery and treasure hunting like rarely any other ancient buildings. There will be plenty of that happening on this game with a new bonus feature that offers extra spins and a free spins round with only three regular pay symbols on the reels that can lead to wins of up to 3,098 times your stake.
Egyptian Fortunes is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Enter the pyramids on mobile or desktop from 0.20 to 100 credits. The RTP of this medium variance game is set at 96.50%. Pragmatic Play offers an Autoplay function for up to 100 consecutive spins as well as the choice of normal, quick and turbo speed.
As to be expected from an Egyptian themed slot, you will find an elaborate game window with bold colours, impressive animations and super HD graphics. The entrance chamber of a pyramid lit by eternal flames can be seen in the background while a range of Egyptian gods and a Pharaoh populate the reels. A typical oriental soundtrack is intensifying the suspense and even more so on big wins when it goes into a dramatic crescendo.
The slot has 10 regular pay symbols, starting with the usual card royals from 10 to A and followed by four gods and goddesses – Anubis, Horus, Bastet, and Khnum – as well as the Pharaoh himself. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 2.5x to 50x your stake. That pales though in comparison to the Wild symbol, which is an intricate Egyptian artefact and pays a massive 250x your stake when five line up on a spin. A pyramid with the rising sun in the background is the scatter symbol.
The Extra Spins Feature in the Base Game
Egyptian Fortunes comes with a new bonus feature in the base game that can produce decent wins. Extra Spins are triggered when you hit one or more selected winning combinations in a spin. Multiple eligible winning combinations in one spin will trigger the respective amount of Extra Spins for each combo. More Extra Spins can be won while the feature plays out and wild symbols can substitute to build an eligible winning combo. The feature is not available during the free spins round.
- Five Extra Spins: Hit a win with a five of a kind of 10, J or Qs symbols to trigger five extra spins.
- Four Extra Spins: Hit a win with a four of a kind of Ks, As, Anubis or Horus symbols to trigger four extra spins.
- Three Extra Spins: Hit a win a three of a kind of Bastet, Khnum and Pharao symbols to trigger three extra spins.
- Two Extra Spins: Hit a win with a two of a kind of Wild symbols to trigger two extra spins.
There are no multipliers or other reel modifiers in play during the feature. The game will simply spin through the awarded Extra Spins and award any additional line wins that land. All wins are accumulated and paid once the feature ends. The Free Spins round can be triggered when Extra Spins are active but will be played once it concludes.
The Egyptian Fortunes Free Spins Feature
Six free spins are awarded when scatters land on reel one, three, and five in one spin, which can be indefinitely retriggered. Players will now be entering the ancient pyramid in search of the all-important scroll that will determine what symbols will be on the reels during the round.
The scroll has a single row with three symbol positions. All pay symbols, except wild and scatters, are included on the reel. The scroll will spin one time and the symbols stopping in view will be the only symbols present on the reels on every free spin together with wilds and scatter. The wild symbol can appear on reels two and four only during the feature.
With 500 odd Egyptian-themed slots available today, this slot from Pragmatic Play faces some mighty competitors to make it into the favourites list. The chances of that to happen are not too bad as Egyptian Fortunes is a solid effort from the developer with a few turns and twists in the base game and free spins that can lead to super mega wins.
