Treasures of the Pyramids Slot
Treasures of the Pyramids is a 5-reel, 4-row max 40-pay lines online slot from IGT. Somehow, the game designers at IGT must have awoken one morning and thought: "You know what the online slots world really needs? – Another Egyptian-themed online slots game!". This theme has only been used, say, two dozen times before. Obvious titles such as 'Cleopatra' and 'Ramesses Riches' had already been used, so IGT plumped for 'Treasures of the Pyramids', as it was the habit of the Pharaohs to have themselves buried with all their lovely treasures, so most of the great pyramids built by the Egyptians were indeed filled with treasures … or at least they were until thieves broke in and did a bit of robbing.
The symbols used in this game are all suitably Ancient Egyptian-related, aside perhaps from the standard playing card values ten to ace. The rest of the reels are taken up by golden treasures including rings and ankhs. You can choose your coin value from one of four choices – 0.01, 0.05, 0.25 or 1.00 – and you can also choose how many of these coins you wish to gamble with on each spin from one to ten. Finally, you can choose the number of lines you wish to have in play – 1, 10, 20, 30 or all 40. Your final bet is coin size x coins x lines. When you're ready to go treasure hunting, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest winning pay out in this game is five times the size of your coin for any three identical playing card values. The jackpot is secured by landing five black panther symbols on one of your active paylines, which wins you 5,000x coins.
The black panther also acts as the wild symbol here. This ebony pussy substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbol. Just to make things easier, the black panther symbol comes stacked two-high.
A cool-looking pyramids symbol acts as the scatter symbol here. If you land two anywhere on the reels you earn a pay out, but if you land three or more then you win free spins – eight for three, fifteen for four, and one hundred for five. All wins during free spins are doubled.
All wins can be gambled. You can choose to guess the suit of a hidden card to win four times your stake, or the colour to double it. If you lose, your win is reduced to nothing.
That's all there is to Treasures of the Pyraminds. It's an old-fashioned type of affair, and will only suit those who prefer slots at the simpler end of the spectrum. A bonus game would not have gone amiss. In summary, a very mundane game that proves that in the online slots game, all that glitters is not gold.
