We’ve yet to discover whether the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality slot can actually help the player live forever, but it does hold the promise of 3.6 million-coin jackpot (up to $7.2 million; crazy for a non-progressive jackpot slot). In addition, the symbols set is filled with the imagery you’d expect in an Ancient Egypt-themed slots game: King Tut, Cleopatra (yay!), a scarab, an ibis and the inevitable ho-hum A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols.
Welllllll, yes. Mostly. The Net Entertainment game designers refer to the five columns as reels, though the gameboard is laid out in distinctly non-slots fashion, approximating the shape of a 2-D pyramid. The five rows of the game are comprised of 1, 3, 5, 5 and 5 symbols from top to bottom, and 3, 4, 5, 4 and 3 symbols high from left to right.
The player may wager between 10 and 100 coins of 1¢ to $2, for bets ranging from 10¢ to $200. And, lest you forget, you can play right here for free – though wins, too, are purely illusory in this case. To play for real money, visit any casino website linked from Cleopatra Slots.
Winning combinations are formed by landing three like symbols anywhere within the first three “reels.” After a winning combination is formed, the game responds in the way these games have since the days of Bejeweled and Candy Crush: The winning symbols disappear and the “avalanche” effect kicks in, with artificial gravity resettling the old symbols and news symbols added to fill the empty spaces.
Upon launching the game, the player is bombastically informed of “Wild Generations” and the “Avalanche Multiplier.”
You may need to stop visiting certain areas of the internet, my friend. In actuality, “Wild Generations” in the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality slots game refers to extra wilds awarded. Any symbol that lands on the top of reels 2, 3 or 4 that makes up part of a winning combination morphs into a wild symbol before the next avalanche – naturally, this usually means additional wins.
Very simply put, with every three avalanches, subsequent wins are increased by 1x. The vast majority of the time, wins won’t get the player past 2x.
This slot game is definitely high-variance. Be prepared for lots of dead “spins.,” but wins are positively huge as well. It doesn’t take much on the positive side to wipe out a lot of losses in Pyramid...
To be completely honest, we’re not sure, and the game instructions offer no hint whatsoever as to how the 3.6 million coins might be bagged. Maybe if every one of the 19 symbols in the pyramid is identical and the 10x avalanche multiplier is on…?
