Treasure of the Pyramids is yet another Ancient Egyptian themed video slot, this time from 1×2 Gaming. The slot is pretty light on special features; it does not offer you a progressive jackpot or even a bonus round. It does however have a wild symbol, a scatter symbol and some free spins. Treasure of the Pyramids slot does not have animations, or any exciting graphics. This is not the slot for you if you are looking for an exciting few hours. It is a good starting point for beginners however, as it can also be played for free money. It may get boring quite soon though with its repetitive spins and not much else.
Egyptian Symbols and Theme
The theme for Treasure of the Pyramids is again one of Ancient Egypt. There are many, many Egyptian themed slot games out there, many feature 3D graphics and exciting second screen bonus rounds. Treasure of the Pyramids have neither of these. The graphics are 2D, and pretty flat. Of course the symbols are iconic and taken from the theme, such as the Eye of Horus, the head of the Falcon God himself, a scarab beetle and of the staples of every Egyptian slot game, Queen Cleopatra and King Tut. Treasure of the Pyramids has basically taken any well known Egyptian symbols from any era and combined them together in this slot.
There is very minimal animation in this slot apart from a simple zoom or twist to mark a winning combination. Cleopatra is the highest paying symbol in the game and will award you 300x your line bet, followed by king Tut with 100x your line bet. The least rewarding and exciting symbols are those from a deck of cards, Nine to Ace. These will pay out for five of a kind in an active payline and range from between 20x and 80x. Being a low variance slot, Treasure of the Pyramids will award you with quite a few smaller wins quite often, with all the character symbols paying out for even two of them on a line.
Basic Special Features
The special features found in Treasure of the Pyramids are pretty basic. Starting with the scatter symbol, which comes in the form of a scarab beetle. This has two functions. The first is to launch a very basic Pick Me round where the Canadian casinos online player gets to choose from three artefacts. Each holds a prize but you won’t get to find out what the other prizes are. To trigger this you need to find three or more scarabs anywhere on the reels. The scarab scatter will also award the player with Treasure of the Pyramids biggest game win. The scarab acts as a multiplier here, paying out 25x the total bet for three, 150x for four and a pretty decent 300x for five.
Treasures of the Pyramids also have a wild symbol, with the word wild on it. This is only found on specific reels, and can take the place of any base symbols in the game, excepting of course the scatter.
