Progressive Jackpot: No
Many explorers have tried to unearth the mysteries — and more importantly, the riches — that are hidden inside the pharaoh’s tombs. Now, you get your chance to join these bold souls and find riches for yourself in the latest iteration of the popular online slot by Novomatic called Pharaoh's Gold III.
Just as you’d expect from a slot machine that is focused on Ancient Egypt, it’s up to you to discover treasures which include the jade scarab beetles, cats, golden birds, the sphinx and, of course, the pyramids. You then trade in these treasures for some incredible prizes.
The game also features two bonus symbols that add another layer to the fun, in the form of Sarcophagus wild bonus and the All-Seeing-Eye scatter bonus. There are also some free games that are waiting to be excavated. When it comes down to it, it would be safe to safe that Pharaoh's Gold III marks the most bonus-filled Novomatic release to date.
There are many myths and legends about the curse of the pharaoh and the horrible things to be found beneath the desert sands, including scarab beetles and cats. Thankfully, in this game, the only time you’re likely to run into one of those is when it’s a cute little animation that harkens your wins. The primary thing you’re going to find in this tomb is five-reels filled with prizes.
There are nine paylines to trigger here. You can pick as few or as many as you want. If you get bored of hitting the spin button, then just set up the autoplay function and watch as the reels spin themselves for you. The wild symbol in Pharaoh's Gold III is the head of Tutankhamen. This symbol can take the place of any other symbol on the board and doubles winnings from any combination that it completes.
Everyone wants to win pharaoh’s gold and this game certainly has some great prizes for you. The big wins include 25,000 coins for the scarab beetles and cats, 40,000 coins for the golden birds, and up to 75,000 coins for hitting the pyramid or sphinx. Of course, the chief symbol is the sarcophagus. There’s nothing quite like the 900,000 coin super jackpot won by the sarcophagi. They are able to use the power of the Pharaoh to take the place for another symbol and double your winnings in the process.
The All-Seeing-Eye is, of course, always watching your every move. You should also be watching out for it. Getting the all-seeing-eye can initiate free spins where you win triple your prize and a sweet bonus of 450,000 coins.
This game is an awesome improvement of an already great slot machine series, as Pharoah’s Gold III really does take it to a whole new level. Better graphics and better prizes make this game a real gem and one that gamers of all levels should get their hands on
Just loading up Pharaoh's Gold III is a sure delight, as it is a game that features some awe-inspiring graphics. The imagery really fits the theme and nothing seems out of place, which is a problem some other Novomatic games have had difficulty with in recent times. The slot machine reels themselves feature pyramids, snake charms, hieroglyphics, and the usual 10-Ace playing cards you’ve probably come to expect.
After you win a prize in Pharaoh's Gold III, you are presented with the opportunity to either collect your winnings or enter the “Gamble” feature. It should be noted that this feature kicks in after every win at the player’s discretion. Choosing to risk your winnings loads up a video poker style screen where you double your money by beating the dealer’s card. Guess wrong and you lose your money, but guess right and you get to choose another card. There are four cards overall, leading to potentially doubling your money four times over.
