As with many good things, enjoying this game can only come if you don’t keep waiting for the big rainfall at every spin. Even so, Treasures of the Pyramids is simply fun by itself, and with the high number of paylines, the payouts will keep you entertained for quite some time.

First up, Treasures of the Pyramids sports a 4 X 5 reel layout with 40 paylines. Everything about this game is grand and vivid. Being tombs for their beloved pharaohs, everything is designed with a touch of gold on it. Before you think that it’s all just looks, we discovered that Treasure of the Pyramids is actually made up of lots of wealth too. After 20 minutes spinning, we never once got below our initial bank balance. Bets are accepted from a small 10p all the way to a massive £400 per spin.
One thing that you may not fancy is the quite old-fashioned look that this mobile slot game exhibits. The developers at IGT have kept the design of this game to be as true to the real heritage as possible. In fact, even the symbols in Treasures of the Pyramids are after many symbolic artefacts like the Ankhs (known as the breath of life), jewels, gold and the pyramids themselves.
Treasures of the Pyramids also features the gamble feature. This maybe quite a common feature, but it definitely adds some spice and excitement to the gaming experience as a whole. Guessing the right colour will double your winnings, and guessing the right suit will quadruple your winnings. Seems like a good deal eh?

The features in this game are pretty straight forward. When you do get your Black Panthers, it safe to say that it will start raining money. The Black Panther, the highest and most profitable symbol, is also a Wild Symbol. Being the Wild, the Panther can replace all other symbols to complete winning paylines. Best of all, it can reward you to up to 5000X your wager on a single spin. We are definitely loving panthers from now on!
The number Free Spins that Treasures of the Pyramids offers is absolutely ludicrous. Here, you can win up to a staggering 600 free re-spins. Yep, you heard that right. 600. Now let that sink in. To trigger the free spins you need to at least 3 Pyramid symbols anywhere on your reels. At least 8 free spins will be rewarded at any time, and the maximum would be 100 free spins. Scatter symbols during free spins, will reward you with additional free spins, and this could go all the way to the mentioned 600.
We saved the best for the last this time round. The Pyramids are full of treasure and there is plenty for everyone. As such, a win multiplier of 2X will be applied to ALL of your winnings. Who knew the Gods were this generous?
We are getting bored saying this, but IGT produces games that are just spectacular. The graphics may seem old fashioned, but you know that a lot of thought has been put into the design of it. Mostly, all the visuals and soundtrack that accompanies the game follow the ancient Egyptian theme. Treasures of the Pyramids is playable on all devices including on mobile phones, tablets and on PC’s, and we encountered zero lags or bugs from close to an hour of gaming.
The sheer number of Free Spins just blew us away with this game. Every 15 to 20 or so spins, we would get 3 scatters and will be rewarded with free spins. More often than not, you will receive the minimum 8 free spins, but we were lucky enough to get 15 free spins every now and then.
With the decent Return-To-Player (RTP) of 96.2% in this game and combined with the magnitude of free spins, we would consider this game low to medium risk as you wouldn’t find it exceptionally hard to maintain your bank balance at all times.
This is a somewhat blunt way of going about it, and Treasures of the Pyramids probably won’t go down in history as a pivotal part of slot-game history. However, the Ancient Egyptian theme, with its jewels, amulets and hieroglyphs, can make for a pleasing escape.
This is a good old-fashioned, functional game, nothing revolutionary, but good old-fashioned, casino-style fun. With decent payouts that this game offers, both casual and more serious players would do well here.
