The 100,000 Pyramid Slot Review


Although the Pyramid-franchise of quiz shows hasn’t hit UK shores with any success, the 100,000 Pyramid slot by IGT has been available to play at Bet365 Games for a good while now.  Loosely based on the show that is a huge hit in America (with 9 Emmy Awards to its name), the slot version offers players a chance to win a fantastic jackpot of 100,000 coins if they can hit five of the Pyramid symbols on one of the available paylines.

The 100,000 Pyramid slot features a standard 5×3 reel layout with up to 15 paylines in operation. You can play 1, 3 5, 9 or 15 paylines on each spin and the cost of a spin ranges from just £0.01 upwards to huge amounts per spin which is the realm only of the higher roller. Complete with music taken from the TV show and symbols that have been inspired by the show including playing card symbols with a gameshow prize embedded onto them, the presentation is a clear homage to its TV show forebearer.

One of the nice features about the 100,000 Pyramid Slot is that the jackpot can be triggered direct from the base game and also during the free spins round. Base game payouts range from smaller value payouts that won’t cover your initial bet, up to much larger payouts of 250, 500 and 1000 coins if you can land higher value symbols five across a payline. With plenty of additional symbols on the reels, including some great bonus features, this is a slot that has a good deal of depth to it.

The 100,000 Pyramid Slot Bonus Features

There are a number of additional features that can be triggered from within the base game. The Winner’s Circle Bonus is triggered when you land three or more of these symbols across the reel which not only triggers a cash prize, but also a free spins round. Initially, you receive just 2 free spins and a 1x multiplier, but you can make five picks from the board which will increase the number of free spins or add value to your multiplier. Progress through the Pyramid and the maximum free spins bonus you can get is 36 free spins and a 9x multiplier.

The other key bonus in the slot is the Pyramid Wild symbol. This is the key to the biggest wins in the game as if you can land five of these symbols on a payline, then you will win the 100,000 coin jackpot available. It is worth noting here that with Bet365, all wins are capped at a maximum of £250,000 from the game, so it isn’t really worth playing with a coin size greater than £2.50 if winning this massive jackpot is your primary aim.

One final thing to note is that even with these additional bonus features (which can pay handsomely), the game itself is very much a more medium variance game and as such, while wins come along relatively frequently, the majority are not that huge and it can take a little while to trigger one of the truly good value wins.  You can play the 100,000 Pyramid slot right now at Bet365 Games.


Editor's Review

The graphics may look a little dated and somewhat ‘8-bit’ compared to other slot games, but the retro styling of the slot doesn’t impact the gameplay as such. The 100,000 Pyramid slot is fun to play, speedy and has a fantastic 100,000 coin jackpot available. The Free Spins round isn’t easy to hit but can prove lucrative, but as a medium variance slot, wins of higher value are not that easy to come by and it can take time and effort before you land one of the bigger wins available in the game.
