Pharoah Gold Slot

Egypt is famous for many things. But there’s no denying it’s most fascinating for its ancient period. After all, it had the pyramids, mummys, sphinx, hieroglyphics, pharaohs and Cleopatra.  So, has this 777igt struck gold or struck out?

Golden Touch

There may not be any pyramids, sphinx or mummys here, but the touch of Egyptian heritage is still noticeable in the game’s very classy look. The background is a delightful golden tint with a mysterious dark shadowy light. The effect is that the upright pharaohs on either side of the 5 reels stand out more, with the number of lines being played also clearly evident. Also, the name is in golden capital letters at the top middle of the screen, with the three jackpots and a link to the lobby on either side.

What it does also mean is that it makes the icons stand out more, which is fine as the icons are well chosen. Even the symbols that are representing the regular Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10 have a nice understated golden tint. All the buttons for playing, at the bottom of the screen, have the same sort of shade. The theme is aided by the music. With its exotic faraway flute melody, it keeps the air of mystery. Once you tire of it, it’s easy to reduce the volume or mute altogether.

Pharaoh Power Play

The Bet Lines go up in 10s from 10 to 100, with the Bet Per Line being either 0.01, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 0.7, 0.9 or 1.2. There’s a Bet Max button worth 60 credits, and an Auto Spin button which offers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or infinite spins. 

There’s no speed setting on the automatic spinning, which is a shame. However, the symbols do light up neatly when winning and when it looks like you are on an impressive win the later reels become fiery, which is a neat touch.

The Paytable keeps to a dark backlight on all its 4 pages, with the letters in gold capitals keeping it very stylish. The female statue is the most valuable symbol with a maximum of 200 credits. Rather oddly, the 3 regular picture symbols are in reverse order, with the least valuable higher up. Of the card representations, this peculiarity continues, though you’ll need to be paying close attention to see that 10 and Jack are worth the same.

Bags of Bonuses

All the special symbols have real artistic detail. The Wildcard is a coin and replaces everything except for the Scatter, Bonus, Free Spins and Jackpots. If you get 5 of them, you’ll also get 150 credits.

The Scatter is a hieroglyphics image that gives payouts multiplied by the total bet and then adds it on to your winning lines. It is also worth up to 100 extra credits. The black cat goddess is the Free Spins, or Free, as it is described in the game. It offers either 5, 10 or 15 spins depending on whether you get 3, 4 or 5 of them.

The Bonus is the golden Ankh, which gives you a special game if you obtain 3 or more in one spin. It’s one of the odder extras you’ll come across. There are 5 gold panels, 2 on top, 3 below. You have to click on the panels left to right. If it turns lighter, it’s good. Dark is bad meaning you lose. You will feel a bit in the dark as it were, with this.  It is neither skilful or amusing nor decorative.

The game is more successful with its progressive jackpot bonuses. The pharaoh’s head appropriately represents the most valuable of these, with the Major Jackpot worth 6 figures. The Scarab beetle is the Mini Jackpot and the symbolic stone is the Minor Jackpot. While you’ll hope to get the Major Jackpot, even getting 5 of a kind of any of the other two will give 5-figure credits.

So Elegant

You’ll struggle to see a more elegantly designed game. Its use of gold and dark shades, with symbolic icons and themed music, adds a glamour you won’t see in too often. It is a shame the bonus game is so disappointing as it highlights how there needs to be more beyond the overall gameplay. It would take only a few changes to have this golden themed game shining, sparkling brightly.
