Review of Pyramid: Quest for Immortality Mobile Slot by NetEnt
Deep inside the Egyptian pyramids lie elaborate chambers, stocked with gold, silver and precious stones. The king’s disciples bury hundreds of treasures, which they believe will be needed by the king in his afterlife. Inspired by this beauty and luxury, NetEnt has produced a new slot titled Pyramid: Quest for Immortality. There are crushing wins, a generous paytable and multipliers. What treasures would you uncover? It’s time to play and find out.
Slot Game Overview:
Pyramid: Quest for Immortality has 5 reels. The game is modelled after an Egyptian pyramid or tomb, and has an unconventional 3-4-5-4-3 reel structure. This results in a healthy number of paylines too. Take 3 x 4 x 5 x 4 x 3 and altogether, there are a 720 ways to win! The symbols are fashioned after Egyptian pharaohs and hieroglyphic-style text.
Players can wager as little as 10p to £200 per spin, making it suitable for players of all levels and risk appetites. True to the theme of Egyptian luxury, NetEnt has packed some serious cash prizes into this slot. Pyramid: Quest for Immortality offers up to 36,000 times your wager! On average, the slot awards 5 to 20x wins, which isn’t too bad at all.
This slot boasts “Avalanche Reels” technology, which is the same gaming engine behind the infamous Gonzo’s Quest. When you hit “spin”, the symbols would fall into positions on the reels, instead of the classic spinning mechanism. When you score a winning combination, the winning symbols will explode and disappear, allowing for new symbols to fall into place. Sometimes, these new symbols form even more winning combinations, and so, the exploding and restocking of symbols continues. This action continues until no more winning combinations are made. In a way, these Avalanche features are much like a free respin. Players can score multiple wins for the price of one reel spin!
There is also an “Avalanche Meter”, which is located on the top right hand corner of the screen. If you accumulate three successive wins, the meter fills up and a 2x multiplier is activated. The multiplier then increases by one, for every three further successive wins. These multipliers create some pretty sizeable wins, especially if you can activate the 10x multiplier!
Finally, there are Pyramid Wilds. These Wild symbols can substitute any other symbol on the reels and complete winning paylines. If the Wild symbols are on the top positions of the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel, and form part of a winning combination, these symbols will hold their position and hang around for the next respin. Sticky Wilds, yes please!
As we’d expect from NetEnt, the graphics quality in Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is among the best in the market. The music accompanies the gameplay very well too. Every Avalanche causes symbols would fall with a rhythmic crash. When you get a winning combination, the winning symbols will explode satisfyingly and more symbols fall in with a resounding “crash”.
As part of NetEnt’s Touch range, Pyramid: Quest for Immortality can be played on mobile phones, tablets and desktops. The mobile version is specially adapted for smaller screens, such as larger buttons and more streamlined animation.
Many slot designers have produced Egyptian-themed slots. There is Novomatic’s Book of Ra and NetEnt’s Lost Island. However, this new Pyramid: Quest for Immortality slot gives the tired theme and refreshing makeover. The Avalanche model coupled with the fun reel design suits the Egyptian theme well. It isn’t a sloppy redesign with new aesthetics, instead the entire math model has been tweaked to fit the theme.
NetEnt trumps other new slots yet again. Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is worthy of your time and money. The Avalanche reels often leads to a series of Big Wins and Mega Wins; bound to put a smile on any slot player’s face. Finally, the animation and sound creates a fun gaming experience. We have to say that the Avalanche animations and effect surrounding it has impressed us big time!
