Pharaoh's Tomb Slot Machine

Budding slots developer, here's a top tip for you: if you want a sure-fire slots hit, add a game to your portfolio with the word 'Pharaoh' in it. Yep, whether it's Bally's 4-row Pharaoh's Dream, Playtech's Pharaoh's Secrets, or Beefee's Pharaohs and Aliens (a weird blend of sci-fi and ancient Egypt), slots makers can't beat a bit of Egyptian kings in their lives.

Play over 10 Lines at a Range of Stakes

Pharaoh's Tomb treads the well-worn path, and in most respects it's like any of those Pharaoh-named slots. The 10 paylines aren't fixed here, so you can play on a fairly simple level, but stakes can be bumped up to £50 a spin.

If you're looking for slick animation and cool symbols, look elsewhere. This is as basic as it gets. The Jack-to-ace symbols are the lowest payers, and crop up most frequently. But elsewhere, there are various hieroglyphics, scarab beetles, and golden birds to mix things up. The golden ankh is the best payer, triggering a jackpot worth 50x your stake when you line up five matching symbols in a row.

Expanding Wilds Add to WIns

NOVOMATIC Wilds can tend to be on the stingy side, but things are a little different in Pharaoh's Tomb. The Wild icon is the Pharaoh's head.

Not only does this Wild substitute for regular symbols in the game other than the Scatters, but it expands to fill the whole reel. Sorry, what was I saying about poor animation? Maybe the game does have one or two saving graces. Note, however: the Wild only appears on the middle three reels.

Win 12 Free Spins in the Game's Bonus

Look for the 'Pharaoh's Tomb' logo. This Scatter will pay anywhere it lands on the reels. However, land three or more of those suckers and you'll trigger 12 free spins with a special expanding symbol.

The Wild Pharaoh sarcophagus 'upgrades' symbols as it appears, but like the base game it only appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4. In fact, this is where the animation comes into its own. The sarcophagus flies open to reveal wings, water, snake, scarab, bird, and ankh icons. The lowest paying symbol will be replaced on the reels with the next highest. Potentially, then, it's possible to keep 'upgrading' symbols until you only see the highest-paying: the ankh.

In addition to acting as a Wild, each additional symbol that appears will lead to extra free spins. So, one added Wild means one extra spin, two Wilds means three free spins, and three Wild sarcophaguses five free spins. It's definitely a bonus round you need to be aiming for.

For Fans of Expanding Symbols

If you're a fan of expanding symbols with an Egyptian touch, look no further than Pharaoh's Ring, also from NOVOMATIC. The slot has a similar RTP of around 95%, and a special expander that hits in the bonus game. During the bonus free spins feature, a special Scatter may appear and expand to fill the whole reel. Like this slot, Pharaoh's Ring also features a Wild that can increase wins, but it only appears on Reels 2 and 4.

Give Pharaoh's Tomb a Try for Free

With a return of just over 95%, Pharaoh's Tomb is on a par with most NOVOMATIC slots in this range. And with expanding symbols and a fun bonus round, there's definitely enough to keep free spins fans happy. The Scatters actually fell pretty frequently when we tried the game, even if the 10 paylines means you might be missing a lot of the bigger payouts.

If you want something different the usual Book of Ra/Cleopatra fare, though, give this game a try.
