Pharaoh’s Fortune is a 5-reel video slot game that was developed by IGT. The game is very similar to the land-based version of the game and is entertaining enough to keep players going for quite a while with a much anticipated interactive bonus round. IGT is both mobile and Mac friendly and the IGT mobile app makes accessing mobile slots even easier.
Pharaoh’s Fortune is a video slot game with an Egyptian theme, which may arguably be the most common online slot theme in the industry. Nonetheless, all symbols rendered in Pharaoh’s Fortune are reminiscent of ancient Egyptian inscriptions. The symbols of the game include the Pharaoh’s Fortune Logo wild symbol, the Wolf, the Snake, two Egyptians, an Egyptian riding a horse, the Phoenix, the Owl, the Pharaoh, an Egyptian with a wolf mask, an Egyptian holding two poles, the Eye, and a Bug scatter symbol. The background of the game shows an Egyptian with a wolf mask and on the top with the logo is gold bricks across the screen.
The best way to win the most on Pharaoh’s Fortune is the get 5 of a kind of wilds, which is the Pharaoh’s Fortune Logo wild symbol. The wild symbol is capable of substituting for any symbol except the Blue Bug scatter symbol or the Green Pharaoh symbol. The Green Pharaoh symbol is capable of appearing on reels 1, 2, or 3 only and is what triggers the free spins bonus round. Players can also get 5 of a kind, 4 of a kind, 3 of a kind, and 2 of a kind to win a various payout amounts. Scatter pays are also awarded when the scatter Bug symbol appears on any of the reels on any of the active lines.
The bonus feature of the game is the free spins bonus round. To trigger this round a player has to get the green Pharaoh symbol on either reel 1, 2, or 3. The player is asked to pick a stone block, which then awards the player a particular amount of free spins. The player continues picking 5 different blocks and then is awarded a certain number of free spins with a multiplier. The symbols in the free spins round are completely different from the original game with a different song that plays in the background. Once the free spins round is over, the player is taken to a different screen where winnings are presented across the screen with a boat and dancing Egyptians. The maximum amount of free spins you can get is 25 and a maximum multiplier of up to 6X the original bet.
Paylines are adjustable, and bets per line range from 0.10 to 2.00, accommodating a wide range of betting preferences. At some online casinos, you may be able to find a free spins bonus that you can use to try out this game for free before you commit to playing for real money.
There are many video slot games with an Egyptian theme but Pharaoh’s Fortune stands out due to its interactive features and free spins bonus round. The music in the background sounds like rock music with an occasional horse neighing and a bell that rings for each winning combination, which does not seem to go at all with the Egyptian theme, but it’s entertaining nonetheless.
