Pyramids of Egypt Slots

Ankhs, scarabs, flails and crooks. It can mean only one thing – yet another Ancient Egyptian themed slot machine. Pyramids of Egypt is a 4-reel slot machine by Merkur Gaming which offers plenty of winning chances thanks to fact that all wins are awarded whenever matching symbols appear on adjacent reels.

However, other than that, there isn't any particularly exciting spinning action to look forward to with no offerings of free spins, no wild symbols to help complete wins, and no narrative based side games to break up the action. That said, there is a chance to double your prize hauls with a special 2x multiplier that is applied to all full-house wins.

Spin like an Egyptian

The historical civilisation of Ancient Egypt has given the world magnificent pyramids, many fascinating artefacts and even a few epic films. However, if there is one thing that the cultural legacy of that North African civilisation has left the world, then it would be the Egyptian themed slot machine. And there are loads of them! In fact, you could probably fill an entire online casino with nothing more than slot machines which take on the theme of Ancient Egypt.

This slot machine by Merkur Gaming is yet another addition to the genre, offering many of the familiar sacred symbols of luck, prosperity and power. There are revered scarab beetles, believed to be earthly symbols of the sun god Ra, representing the cycle of the heaven as well as rebirth. There is also an icon depicting a statue of Anubis, the god of the afterlife who had the head of a jackal.

Other icons include the Ankh cross, symbolising life itself, as well as a crook and flail which were essential items for Pharaohs to represent their power and authority. And, of course, there is also a symbol which depicts a pyramid in all of its glory, built as a final resting place for Pharaohs and important people before their spirits were taken to the afterlife.

Authentically designed reels

With so many slot machines out there with a similar theme, it's often difficult for Egyptian style games to stand out from the crowd. This effort by Merkur Gaming, however, does quite a good job at emulating many conventions of the genre whilst retaining a bit of individuality. For a start, the reels are presented on dirty papyrus paper with various hieroglyph characters written along the side. Meanwhile, there are some small Egyptian figures etched into the dark blue stone above the reels, giving the game a very mysterious and mystical feel.

81 ways to win

Another aspect of Pyramids of Egypt which makes it stand out from the crowd is the fact that it only has 4 reels, as oppose to the usual 5 reels of a conventional video slot. What's more, there are no paylines involved in the game, since all of the wins available are achieved by finding identical symbols on consecutive reels from the first reel on the left going towards the right.

Essentially, this means that there are 81 ways in total to line up a winning combination of icons. And when that happens, a multiplier will be applied to the value of the total stake that is placed from the following options: 0.05, 0.10, 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.50, 5.00 and 10.00. You can see all of the possible winning sequences with their respective total bet multipliers in the following table:

Three consecutive icons
Four consecutive icons
J
1x
2x
Q

K

As you can see, a lot of the wins on offer a relatively low in value. However, all wins below 140 credits can be gambled in one of two side games: a 50/50 double-or-nothing card game, or a unique prize-ladder game.

Unleash the Egyptian riches

There is also every chance that players can boost their wins into an almighty bounty. That is because each symbol tends to appear in stacks during the game, meaning that spinners could easily trigger multiple wins on a single spin. Plus, if a punter happens to find all 4 reels filled with a matching icon J, Q, K or A symbol, they will double the value of all wins.

Pyramid spins

Let's face it, there are absolutely loads of Egyptian themed slot machines out there, and this game by Merkur software is far from being the biggest, best or most bounteous. Nonetheless, with 81 ways to win and a chance to unleash double wins with a full house, players can expect some exciting spins in this 4-reel video slot.
