Progressive Jackpot: No
Get ready to experience the sand, the searing heat and quite possibly, the treasures that lie inside the pyramids in this Egyptian-themed online video slot produced by Novomatic called Pharaoh’s Ring.
Pharaoh’s Ring is a five-reel slot that has three rows and up to 20 paylines. Faint, ornate frames frame those reels that sit against a backdrop of a sun setting over pyramids that stretch off into the distance.
Pharaoh’s Ring is not a new game by any stretch of the imagination. As a matter of fact, it was released back in April 2013 and was only given a lukewarm reception. The game’s Ancient Egypt slot theme is nothing that has not been seen before in this space but it appears that the time passed has given players a newfound appreciation for it.
Although Pharaoh’s Ring has not enjoyed the same success as some of Novomatic’s more popular online slot games, like that of Lord of the Rings, it does have features that players would definitely be entertained with.
Most of the symbols used in the game are the same ones used in other Pharaoh and Egyptian themed titles. The one symbol that sets this game apart from similar games is its ancient book, known as the Book of Ra. Being the most significant symbol in the game, it is the only one that has the ability to take the place of the game’s other symbols to help players win money.
When a player gets at least three of the ancient book symbols on the reels at the same time the free spins feature is triggered. Players get 10 free spins to test their luck with initially. During the free spins feature expanded symbols can lead to increased winnings.
Extra bets can be triggered during the game, adding an extra element of excitement to proceedings. When extra bets are activated, the ring the game is named after can end up on the second reel and fourth reel on the screen. The Pharaoh’s ring symbol is considered a wild symbol while extra bets are in play.
There are a number of compelling reasons to give this game a try and players of all levels should. They definitely won’t regret it.
The high-value symbols will be familiar to fans of this genre and include the Pharaoh, the winged woman, the cat, and the purple scarab beetle. The standard playing card symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. The Book of the Dead is both the wild and the scatter symbol and it will replace all others to form winning symbols except for the Pharaoh’s Ring. The ring is an optional wild symbol which you can buy for an extra 25% of your stake by clicking the appropriate button above the reels.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the Book of the Dead scatter symbols anywhere in view and your initial reward will be ten free spins. Before the spins start the book will reveal one random symbol which, when landing, may expand to cover all the positions on that reel. It can also payout as a scatter symbol for an extra win.
Wins can be gambled using the “Gamble” button below the reels and this is a simple red/black, 50/50 punt to double up your win but a wrong guess will lose it all.
