Ancient Egypt is a well-travelled land for online gamblers. The theme of Ancient Egypt, and particularly the gold and riches that come associated with it, are often a significant source of inspiration for software developers and gambling companies.
Pyramid King, developed by the team at Pragmatic Play, is yet another example of this. This version of Ancient Egypt is one full of special bonus rounds, great visuals and some potentially big jackpot winnings.
The game is a traditional slot, featuring 25 different pay lines and five reels. The game offers players the chance to get their hands on some big prizes, with some features allowing you to get your hands on up to 1,000x your original stake.
Graphics and Theme
With Pyramid King being set in Ancient Egypt, it should come as no surprise that the game’s imagery is based mainly around this. Pragmatic Play has paid a fair amount of attention to the detail that has gone into creating this world.
The reels of the game themselves are surrounded by what appears to be a crumbling temple. This Ancient Egyptian iconography also inspires the symbols on the reels. Players will find a ring, a snake, an ankh, a Pharoah, a scroll, and the image of Anubis, the Egyptian God of Death all on the reels.
The game’s background is also excellently designed. The slot is set in the soaring heat of the Egyptian desert, with the faint outline of the Pyramids sitting far in the distance. The game’s soundtrack also does an excellent job of immersing you in the world, and several sound effects are used to praise you whenever you are lucky enough to get your hands on some winnings.
The game is also very diverse visually, and the background will change at multiple points throughout. For example, when players activate the bonus round, the game shifts to the night time and the game is accompanied by the sound of thunder, all of which further immerses you in this world and creates a sense of tension and excitement.
Pragmatic Play has loaded Pyramid King up with a selection of good little bonus features. The game’s main bonus feature is the free spins round. This will be triggered when players land three of the script symbols. These will only appear on reels 1,3 and 5.
If you are lucky enough to trigger this round, you will then be rewarded with ten bonus spins. The game will also choose a symbol at random before the round which will expand across the reels. If you land one of the higher paying symbols, then this can be incredibly lucrative. The spins will also be re-triggered a limitless number of times during this round.
Pragmatic Play also has a feature that they call their money symbol. In the game. This a camel and a rider being silhouetted by the night’s sky. When six of these land on your reels, they will lock into place, and each reveals a prize. These will stay locked while the rest of the reel respins three times. Any cash values left at the end will be added up and rewarded to the player.
The game features three jackpots. These aren’t progressive, so they are stuck at fixed amounts. The minor is 30x your stake, the major is 100x your stake, and the mega is 1000x your stake. The mega is triggered if all fifteen of your reels fil with the money symbol.
