Within touching distance of the ancient pyramids of Egypt lies, buried beneath the sand, a previously un-plundered tomb of the ancient pharaohs – a tomb that you can now plunder thanks to IGT's great new slot game Treasure of the Pyramids!
Inside you'll find all sorts of ancient artefacts, gems and jewellery, whilst if you can find the secret symbols you can also trigger up to 600 free spins and richly rewarding total-bet multiplied prizes. Just beware the fearsome yet magnificent black panthers that roam the tunnels of this ancient tomb – because they've probably only been eating rats for the last few thousand years.
Choosing how you enter could be paramount to racking-up the amount of prizes you're hoping to win, so it might be a good idea to formulate your plan of attack carefully. You can play either 1, 10, 20, 30 or 40 lines on any spin, and you can place matching line-bets of between 1 and 20 coins on every line you're playing. This allows total-bets of between 1 and 800 coins a spin, but these total-bets will be multiplied when you trigger the Bonus Round. Equally, all prizes are multiplied by your line-bets.
Once you have entered the tomb you can start racking up these line-bet multiplying prizes by lining-up 3 to 5 matching icons. Win between 5x and 100x your line-bet for lining-up the poker symbol hieroglyphics, or go in search of bigger prizes including up to 250x your line-bet for ankhs and ruby encrusted bracelets. You can even double that if you find jewel encrusted eagles or all seeing eyes at up to 500x your line-bet.
All these prizes may also benefit from the magnificent but deadly black panthers that roam the tunnels, as the panthers love to be wild and will claw away other symbols and replace them to make you more winning combos. Even better, the black panthers are also the game's top prize symbol – and lining-up 5 of them on a pay-line will win you an impressive 5,000 coins.
Experts are unsure whether the power of the ancient pyramids of Egypt has even been released, but finding 3 or more pyramid bonus icons will certainly let you feel plenty of pyramid power. Find 3 pyramid bonus icons and you'll win 3x your total-bet plus 8 free spin, find 4 and you'll win 25x your total-bet and 15 free spins, and find 5 and you'll win an awesome 50x your total-bet and 100 free spins. All 3 or 4 symbol prizes will also pay double during free spins, whilst more pyramids can retrigger the bonus to play up to 600 free spins.
Loads of slots with themes of Ancient Egypt have been previously successful and, though IGT haven’t perhaps taken this slot to the heights they perhaps could have, the big prizes for the ancient artefacts and for the black panthers are still worth plundering. However, it’s definitely the power of the pyramids that make this game a must play – and 50x your total-bet and the possibility of 600 free spins is as good a treasure as you’ll find in any Ancient Egyptian tomb!
