Gaming content provider, Pragmatic Play expanded its slot portfolio with the new Egyptian-themed title, Pyramid King. Pragmatic Play always turns out hits and its fourth new title for June, Pyramid King, does not disappoint. The new slot takes players on a journey to the familiar setting of the deserts of Ancient Egypt where they find a whole lot of sand and heat along with a maximum payout of 1,000 times the stake.

The layout of the game

Pyramid King is played out in a standard configuration, meaning that players will hunt their big wins on a 5×3 layout with very radiant colours and a hypnotizing soundtrack in the background. By initiating extra spins, a random special expanding symbol will top up all awards. Players will once again visit the deserts of Ancient Egypt and sweat for big wins on a 25 ways-to-win grid by triggering extra spins and combining high-value symbols with wilds. During complimentary rounds, a random symbol is selected to expand on the board and set off even bigger rewards.

The general play of the game

The 25-payline video slot features several high paying symbols, including an Ankh, Ring, Cobra and the god of death and the afterlife Anubis, all of which can lead to big wins whilst the Pharaoh Mask acts as a Wild. An equal number of low and high pays are used here with the former being the standard J-A royals and the latter are the Ankh, Cobra, Ring and Anubis. Of course, the jackal-headed deity packs the biggest punch with five of a kind earning players 20 times the stake, while the Pharaoh Mask serves as the game’s Wild. Players can unlock the free spins mode if they can land three ancient scroll Bonus symbols which appear on reels 1, 3, and 5. When that happens, one symbol is selected at random to cover the entire reel for the duration of the Bonus Round.

Money symbols and Grand Jackpot

The Camel acts as a Money symbol, with six or more activating three Respins. They also remain sticky, ranking up more Respins for every new Money symbol that lands. At the end of the round, all the Money symbols payout massive amounts and, if every single icon is a Camel during it, players will also trigger the much-expected “Grand Jackpot.”

Familiar theme

Commenting on the new launch in an official press release, Chief Commercial Officer for Pragmatic Play, Melissa Summerfield, said “Pyramid King takes a fun, recognisable theme and adds a Pragmatic Play twist with both Respin and Free Spin features. Its action-packed gameplay and mini-jackpots offer players an exciting quest to take the riches of the fearsome King back home with them after a successful adventure.”

An exciting quest to riches

Unlike the producer’s earlier releases inspired by the ancient Nile civilization, Egyptian Fortunes, Ancient Egypt Classic, John Hunter and the Book of Tut or John Hunter and the Scarab Queen, Pyramid King brings a couple of tricks along, including three respins and a grand jackpot.
