Pyramids slot game has the popular ancient Egypt theme. The graphics, both outside the reels and on the thematic symbols, reflect the theme. The hieroglyphic notations on the symbol backgrounds add to the realism.
About Pyramids Slot
Pyramid is a 720 bet way slot game. This derives from the five reels having a symbol configuration of 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 from left to right. The arrangement is such that it gives the appearance of the reels being set in a pyramid. There are no fixed paylines and bet way wins are formed if the same symbol falls in any position on three or more adjacent reels starting from the left.
The top bet per spin is 200 credits, which will attract high roller players to this game. Low roller players can manage with a bet as small as 0.10 credits. The payout table indicates low variance. The theoretical return to player has been reported as 96.48%.
The main symbols are from the Egyptian mythology theme. The ankh is the wild symbol. It substitutes for other symbols but does not award line payouts. The symbols that award the high line payouts are the pharaoh, the queen, the scarab, the goddess Isis and the asp. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons. All symbols can appear stacked on the reels. There is no scatter or bonus symbol.
Payout Table and Win Potential
The payout table shows the payout in coins per level for one bet way win. If you have activated 5 levels the payout awarded will be multiplied by 5. This will be further multiplied by the number of bet way wins with that symbol and the Avalanche Multiplier if applicable. The coins won will be converted to credits by multiplying with the coin size.
All symbols start paying from three of a kind from the left most reel. The top payout in the table is 50 coins for five pharaohs. This may appear small, but it is not so, given the multipliers that can apply. The maximum win is 3,600,000 coins.
There is no free spins feature or bonus game on the second screen in Pyramid. Instead there are other innovative and exciting features. The first of these is the Avalanche, which you must have enjoyed in some of the earlier Net Entertainment releases. A bet way win starts an Avalanche. Symbols in winning combinations disappear and new ones fall in place. If winning combinations are again formed then the second Avalanche takes place. The Avalanches continue till there are no more bet way wins.
In Pyramid, the Avalanche is sweetened with two other attractive features. The first is the Wild Generation feature. Symbols that are on top of reels 2, 3 and 4 and are parts of winning combinations will turn into wild symbols for the next Avalanche. Wild symbols that are on top of reels 2, 3 and 4 and are parts of winning combinations will not disappear in the Avalanche. The Avalanche Multiplier increases by 1x for every three successive Avalanches till it reaches 10x.
