The theme of ancient Egypt has been done and completely overdone by developers. Some of them have done it exceptionally well, while some others have utterly failed. Fortunately, Novomatic has come up with a splendid and well-made online slot that takes after Ancient Egypt called Pharaoh’s Gold II.
Progressive Jackpot: No
The riches of the deep and dangerous catacombs of the Ancient Pharaohs of Egypt have long been the focus of courageous explorers and now you have the golden opportunity to plunder treasures from one of these ancient tombs in Pharaoh's Gold II by Novomatic.
As with a lot of Egytpian slot machine games in the online space, you are tasked with finding treasures like jade scarab beetles and cats, golden birds, and also the Sphinx and the Pyramids and then, cash them in for some lucrative prizes. You'll also get to enjoy Wild Sarcophaguses and Scattered All-Seeing-Eyes, both of which can get you massive instant wins, while there are also Free Games to keep you highly entertained and engaged for quite some time.
The type of prizes you can get from the treasure you find in the tomb includes up to 25,000 coins for cats and scarab beetles, up to 40,000 coins for coming upon golden birds, and up to 75,000 coins for unearthing the pyramids and the sphinx. However, there's nothing as rewarding as finding the five sarcophaguses that are buried down there as these can win you up to 900,000 coins. The mysterious powers of the pharaohs' means that the sarcophaguses can also take the place of other symbols to generate more winning combinations.
The all-seeing-eye may always be keeping you in its sights, but you'll definitely be wanting to keep an eye out for it as it can award you instant wins of up to 450,000 coins. Three or more symbols will also initiate a Free games Bonus of 15 free games, during which any prize you win will be tripled. After any prize, you will have the choice of collecting it or venturing deeper into the tombs to visit the special Gamble Feature Room. Here you will find a face-down playing card, and be asked to predict whether it will be red or black to double your money. Lose and you may never find your way out – but win and you can choose to try and double your money a further four times.
Pharaoh’s Gold II is a much better version of an already amusing slot, delivering better graphics and bigger prizes, just like how the pharaohs would like it.
Any online slot that is based on ancient Egypt would definitely have icons relating to the old but golden civilization, and this one has a whole host of them included on its reels.
Alongside the obvious symbol of a Pharaoh, there’s also the grandiose sphinx, the eye of Horus, the scarab beetle, the tall black cat, pyramids and various other relative imagery. Making appearances alongside these are the regular slot icons of A, J, K, Q, 10 and 9, and all of these icons are designed and presented in a very visually pleasing way.
There’s a gamble round included in this slot, which is one of Novomatic’s most consistent feature in its plethora of games. This gives you the chance to be able to raise your winnings and is triggered at the end of every winning combination created during the main game.
If you choose to play the gamble round, you’ll be presented with the side game of a deck of playing cards. You’re required to guess the color of the next card turned over, red or black. Should you guess correctly, you’ll see your winnings doubled, while if you make an incorrect guess, your winnings will all be lost.
