When ol’ Howard Carter was digging around in Egypt for Tutankhamen’s tomb, not even in his wildest dreams could he have imagined that the Treasures of the Pyramid he’d find would include a $2 million jackpot payout – but such is the case in the Treasures of the Pyramid slot game.
Cutting right to the chase, eh? We’ll get to that, but the first thing you’ll have to do is wager the max amount. Betting on the Treasure of the Pyramids slot runs from 1¢ to $10 per payline. On the 5 x 4 game board, 40 paylines are in play.
Essentially, to win the max jackpot, the player must land five wilds on an active payline in asingel spin. This result nets 5,000x the total bet, thus the $2 million on max bet. But hey, even as a penny slot, Treasures of the Pyramid still promises a $2,000 payout when playing all 40 paylines – and you’ll be playing all 40 paylines.
Firstly, we can say that the symbol set in the Treasures of the Pyramids slos game is typical of the Ancient Egyptian-themed lot: Among the high-payers, you’ve got the eye of Osiris, an ankh a stylized ibis icon and, for some reason, a diamond ring. Also included are the A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols, likely because Carter was an utter aficionado for poker. (OK, that’s pure conjecture, but he was out in the empty Saharan deserts for years; he must’ve been doing *something* to pass the time out there…)
The symbols are displayed slightly oddly, as though each is lying back in 3D.
The more realistically-rendered Giza Pyramids are scatters awarding 8, 15 or 100 (now *that’s* a Treasure of the Pyramid) free spins when three, four or five, respectively, land on the reels. And the aforementioned wild is the panther icon, which is actually two symbols tall and thus increases vastly the potential for winnings when it appears.
All symbols except for the wilds and scatters may be stacked on the reels.
Sadly, nope. This slot tries to make up for its lack of bonus features with its notably low-variance, i.e. lots of low payouts, play, but in this day and age, a 5-reel video slot game with no frills beyond free spins is a pretty tough sell to all but the most extreme of neophytes…
