Treasures of the Pyramids is an online video pokie that has been designed and developed by the team at IGT. This pokie is set in Egypt and has a rather basic set of features, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t fun to play. We give it a try to see if it is worth your time.
Treasures of the Pyramids Graphics and Theme
As the name suggests, Treasures of the Pyramids is set in ancient Egypt. IGT have done a decent enough job with designing the visual style of the game but it is a little bland. There’s nothing fancy about how it looks, there’s nothing flashy about it. All in all, it is a decent looking pokie, but one that some might find forgettable.
The choice of symbols is obviously heavily influenced by the Ancient Egyptian theme. Some of the symbols are represented by fairly standard playing card symbols, but others include Egyptian jewellery and Egyptian artefacts. The symbols are also a little forgettable; perhaps IGT should have replaced the playing cards with hieroglyphics or something to make it a little more impressive.
Treasures of the Pyramids Features
Treasures of the Pyramids is a fairly basic pokie with five reels and 40 paylines. There isn’t really anything in the way of fancy or complicated bonus game modes. The main focus of this pokie is the base game and the free spins. In fact, there are a lot of free spins up for grabs in this game.
While there may not be any confusing bonus game modes, there are some special symbols for starters, there is a Wild symbol that is represented by a Black Panther. The Wild can stand in for any other symbol, with the exception of the Scatter, to create winning combinations. It is also the symbol with the highest value in the game and if you’re lucky enough to get five Wilds, you’ll win an impressive 5000x your original line bet.
As for the Scatter, it is represented by Pyramids and is the key to unlocking all the free spins Treasures of the Pyramids has on offer. You’ll need to land three Scatters to win free spins but the more scatters you get, the more free spins. Land three and you’ll get eight free spins, four will get you 15 and five will get you 100!
While your free spins are active, all of your winnings will receive a 2x multiplier and landing more scatters will get you more free spins. In total, players could win as many as 600 free spins, which is simply amazing.
Treasures of the Pyramids Closing Thoughts
Treasures of the Pyramids is a rather unremarkable online pokie. It doesn’t do anything wrong but it doesn’t try and do anything right either. It seems to happy being average and coupled with its simple gameplay, this may mean it appeals to many players out there. We liked the simple gameplay and the free spins you could win, we would have just liked some aspects of the pokie improved on.
