When you play NetEnt’s 2015 offering, Pyramid: Quest for Immortality, you’ll be transported to a world of ancient Egyptian pyramids as you begin the quest to find the secrets of immortality.
You may not achieve immortality from playing this Egyptian themed game, but you could uncover plenty of riches as you try to win as many as 3,600,000 coins on just one spin, which is something to tempt most people to play.
NetEnt’s Pyramid: Quest for immortality is a five-reel game that offers the player as many as 720 ways to win, and it comes with an Avalanche Reels bonus feature. The game’s RTP comes in at a generous 96.4% and yes, you really can land as many as 3,600,000 coins on just one spin, although as you will appreciate, this is not something that happens very often.
When it comes to winning symbols, the pharaoh is the most powerful and landing five of him will award you 50 coins. Land five Cleopatra symbols and you will be rewarded with 25 coins. Other high paying symbols include the ubiquitous Egyptian Scarab, Horus (the God of the Sky) and finally a Golden Cobra.
Fortunately, there is no need to be an expert in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics to play this slot as the gameplay is easy enough to pick up in just a few minutes. The lower paying symbols are represented by the more common hieroglyphics such as snakes, birds and the Eye of Ra, while the wild symbol is represented by a Golden Ankh and this replaces all other symbols to form a winning line.
There is some bad news here, as this game doesn’t contain the type of bonus games or free spins that other similar slots offer, but instead, NetEnt has included the Avalanche Reels feature. This works by keeping the reels in place when the symbols fall from their positions. As soon as you have landed a winning combo, these are removed and replaced by new symbols to form another winning combination, hence the avalanche aspect.
If you are lucky enough to land three wins in a row, your Avalanche Multiplier will increase by 1x your initial stake and will increase by one for each following win, although when your winning run comes to an end, the Avalanche Multiplier will reset.
The graphics and gameplay are good, with the game set to a background of pyramids and ancient Egyptian mythological symbols, and the chance to win 3,600,000 coins is one big draw. However, the lack of bonus games and free spins may put some of the more hardened gamers off. There is still plenty to enjoy here, and if you are a fan of Egyptian style games, this is certainly one to add to your list.
