Spin the Slot
Ramesses was renowned as one of the great rulers of Egypt and judging by the way he commands the reels, it’s not difficult to see why. There are 5 reels for you to play on and you’ll find it difficult to get away from his steely gaze, whatever you spin. A total of 25 paylines awaits you but these can be lowered using the onscreen plus and minus keys if you’re playing on a budget and trying to cut costs.
Instead of altering the paylines you could instead lower the coin value. This is alongside the paylines in the control panel and can be amended from 0.01 to 1.00. This is the value per line, giving a total min bet of just 0.25 and a max bet of 25.00. Although there’s scope here, the top bet is still quite low for those looking to play at the higher end of the spectrum.
Although the history of Egypt and the chance to meet some of the most famous characters in history is difficult to resist, if you want to win the cash, you’ll need to take a tour of the paytable. This is where you can discover the patterns of the paylines and find out what prizes await if you’re a success. Hit the info button on screen to navigate away from the main game.
As you might expect, Ramessess himself takes prime position, offering a payout of 15,000 if you match five on a winning line. His beloved Nerfertari is next, with a win of 1,000 for five. However, you will be eligible for a payout if you line up just three of any of the symbols, moving from left to right along a payline. Helping to boost your chances of a win is the wild symbol, represented by the scarab beetle and there’s also a scatter too which hands out free games.
Big Money Bonus
As well as winning cash by matching the icons, there’s also a bonus waiting on the reels. To unlock this hidden game you’ll need to land three of the special symbols on 2, 3 and 4 during the free games. Starting at the bottom you’ll have the chance to pick a stone in every row. Avoid the “collect” sign and you’ll continue, keeping what you’ve won along the way. If you reach the top you’ll be handed the maximum prize of x200 and you’ll return to regular play.
There’s an incentive for playing on all of the paylines: the progressive jackpot. Only awarded when five Ramesses symbols appear when all paylines are in play, the amount that can be won depends on the size of the bet. You’ll need a minimum bet of 2.00 to be in with a chance of winning the jackpot but the more you bet, the greater the payout will be. This jackpot can be won during free games as well as during regular play.
Trip Back in Time
The Pyramid of Ramesses from Playtech is an atmospheric video slot which takes the player on a journey back in time. The power of the pharaoh is tangible and there’s plenty of bonuses and extras on the reels to keep every player interested.
With a medium volatility and an RTP of 92.39%, the only drawback for top players is the lack of a higher level of betting, but with what’s on offer this is a fairly minor flaw.
