Ancient Egypt brings with it an infamous design of hot sands, pyramids, scarab beetles and ancient artefacts, but The Great Pyramid isn’t your usual Egyptian slot machine. Set on a real-life slot machine, you have the top half of the machine with its feature screen and payouts and the lower half with the reels and control panel. Running on the outside of the machine are brown panels with hieroglyphics and in the distance, are other slot machines to give that real casino feeling. Symbols on the reels are a basic animation of single, double and triple bars, blue and red 7s and golden pyramids.
Multiply Your Cash
A 200x multiplier is the biggest multiplier offered and you can get this during the bonus game. The base game wins can offer between 2x and 20x your stake, which isn’t exactly life-changing and you are required to hit 3 of a kind before receiving any payout. Any combination of 7s will award a 2x multiplier, blue 7’s offers a 10x multiplier, whilst the red 7s offer the highest base game win of 20x your stake. The bars are the low value symbols; single bars award a 3x multiplier, double bars offer a 4x multiplier whilst the triple bars award a 5x multiplier.
Spin a payline of golden pyramids to enter the great pyramid bonus game. On your screen, there will be two golden pyramids and each is filled with 10 notes. The first pyramid is full of 2x notes and the second is full of 20x notes. You win every consecutive lit note from the bottom of the trail and when a gap in the trail is reached, you have 3 chances to light that note to expand the trail and your chances of going on to win a max of 200x your stake. Randomly at any time, up to 3 nudges may be awarded – auto nudge allows the machine to automatically nudge on your behalf. After a losing nudge, the super spin feature may be offered – this guarantees a win spin. Holds or series of holds can be offered too.
Egyptian themed slots are in their masses, but there’s a handful that stand out from the crowds – one of which is The Mummy by Playtech. Designed on the popular movie of the same name, you spin the 5 reels and 25 paylines from 1.25 to a max of 25.00, as you try to trigger the bonus features and free spins. Relive famous scenes from the movie as you play where Dwayne ‘Rock’ Johnson (aka the Scorpion King) fights his way through the Egyptian evils of old as he tries to get his hands on big rewards and you can do the same – without the fighting naturally. There are lots of bonus games to trigger, which can cause a few headaches, but the maximum jackpot of 10,000 coins will soothe your pains.
We can’t say we love classic slot machines, maybe this is because we only starting playing after the classic slots had come and gone (in terms of popularity), But Realistic Games have hit the nail on the head with The Great Pyramid slot machine. Graphics are very basic indeed, but you won’t notice these when the wins fall frequently on the reels. The biggest cash comes from the bonus game, which doesn’t come along too often – but there are plenty of win spins, nudges, holds and multipliers to get your hands on in this medium variance slot.
