Egyptian slots are everywhere these days, so with Pharaoh's Fortune slot IGT decided to take a different approach. They tried to make it cool and funny and ended up with being silly and wacky. Right on! Holymoly approves.
Alright, they did make it cool, silly and funny at the same time. The Pharaoh wears sunglasses and looks much like that “Buddy Jesus” statue; the traditional Egyptian tablets are animated in unexpected ways in winning combinations; and the eighties hit Walk Like an Egyptian plays in the background.
“The slot is cool and silly at the same time, all thanks to fun animations and catchy soundtrack”
“That’s good and fine” you may say, “but what about gameplay features?”. They do have those. The list includes a wild, a scatter, a bonus symbol, and free spins.
The wild (pyramid) is standard - it just substitutes other symbols and completes winning combinations. The scatter (scarab beetle) does nothing but pay out, regardless of the position on the reels. Finally, three bonus symbols (Pharaoh) trigger the free spins bonus, but only when appearing on an active payline.
Right off the start you get 3 free spins at x1 multiplier. When the bonus launches, you’ll see 30 tablets. Click them and reveal additional free spins and multipliers till you encounter the “Collect” sign. Then the free spins start, and the coolest thing about them is that each spin is a guaranteed win. There’s also a different set of symbols, with Egyptian dudes and chicks dancing in silly positions.
IGT managed to make rather unamusing Egyptian theme fun. With a catchy tune in the background and chuckle-inducing animations, Pharaoh's Fortune is a pleasure to spin. Not just because of that - the free spins are nice, and each spin is guaranteed to bring you some win.
Click here to play Pharaoh's Fortune, because you’ve probably had enough of “serious” and “epic” Egyptian slots.
