Treasure of the Pyramids takes you on a journey back in time when the mighty pharaohs ruled Egypt. Once you start exploring the pyramids you will discover treasures beyond imagination in form of gold and jewels but beware of the black panther.
Seeing 5 of these vicious predators on the reels will make you run from the reels by the amount of coins they award. The symbols and animations have a decent level of visual effects and the background music is unique and doesn’t get boring after longer sessions.
Treasure of the Pyramids is developed by IGT software. This provider has a big number of video pokie games in their offer and they had several new releases this past month. We have to say that this game is maybe the best they released so far and if they continue with this rate a lot of players will turn to their video pokie games.
How to Play
This video pokie game follows the standard 4 rows, 5 reels and 40 active pay lines design which is common to many IGT pokies. The minimum bet is set at $0.40 per spin while the maximum is a high $400.
The bet lines can be altered from 1 to 40 and the bet level is adjusted by the coin denomination and the number of coins. Players can use the classic spin button or the auto play option which allows up to 100 auto spins to be played.
There is only one bonus feature in this game in the form of a classic free spins bonus. It is triggered when you get 3 or more scatters ( Pyramid ) anywhere on the reels. If you get 3 scatters you are awarded with 8 free spins, 4 scatters award 15 free spins and 5 scatters on the reels award a whopping 100 free spins.
All wins during this bonus round are doubled and you can retrigger the free spins by landing another set of 3 or more scatters on the reels. This may not sound like much, but experienced players know that IGT pokies are famous for the big number of retriggers that can occur.
In this game the maximum retrigger number is set at 600 free spins which is a guaranteed mega big win in any video pokie game. Like in any other pokie all you need is luck in order to see a win like that on the reels.
If you are a newbie player and take a look at the pay table you will be disappointed. The highest paying symbol is the wild with a 5,000 coins payout for 5 of them on a pay line. The rest of the symbols have a smaller payout with 500 and 250 coins for four of the highest paying symbols. But the payout potential in this pokie is enormous because of several important design details.
The symbols can come stacked on all reels and there are 40 pay lines in total. Also the wild symbol can come stacked covering 2 positions on a reel. This changes the payout drastically and wins over 1,000 x bet are more than possible in the bonus round.
IGT may not be such a famous software provider like NetEnt or Microgaming but their games are fun to play and can award very big payouts. In the ends what matters most is how much a certain pokie can pay and not how good looking it is. Treasure of the Pyramids is one game from IGT that we can definitely recommend for winning big. We put it to the test in real play and we were more than happy with the results.
During base play you get wins with stacked symbols which award medium to big wins. We played about 200 spins without hitting a bonus round and we were in a decent plus. When the bonus rounds started coming we were amazed how easy it was to retrigger them and how decent the payouts were.
Our biggest win was only about 250 x bet in the bonus round, but we got about 4-5 bonus rounds in 150 spins. Our balance was constantly on the rise and in the end we walked away with about 400 x bet in plus on our balance. We are sure that even bigger wins are possible here and we hope next time we will have more luck and see a mega big win on the reels.
