Pharaoh’s Fortune Slot Review


Egyptian themed slots are popular on Bet365 Games and indeed on many different casino sites but there’s none that will have you tapping your foot along and playing with a smile on your face more than IGT‘s excellent Pharaoh’s Fortune slot.  With the musical backdrop of The Bangles classic Walk Like an Egyptian, as well as a plethora of hieroglyphics and other symbols from ancient Egyptian mythology, this is a slot that combines the ancient with the modern in an imaginative and appealing way.

Pharaoh’s Fortune is a 5×3 reel slot that has 15 non-selectable paylines in play on each spin. You can bet from £0.01 up to £200 per line, which means that a massive bet range of between £0.15 and £3,000 per spin is covered, making this appealing for the micro stakes gamer, as well as the higher roller. The top prize in the base game is landing five of the Pharaoh’s Fortune Wild symbols (a Pyramid) across the reels on a payline, which will pay out 10,000 coins.

The symbols with the lighter yellow background are the low value symbols and are the simpler hieroglyphs, while the symbols with the slightly darker background are higher value symbols and they contain a mix of gods and goddesses. The Scarab beetle, another famous icon from Egyptian mythology is the in game scatter symbol and awards a cash prize when you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a reel of 2, 5, 10 and 50 coins respectively.

Pharaoh’s Fortune Bonus Features

The main bonus feature of the Pharaoh’s Fortune slot is the Free Spins round and this is triggered when you land three of the smiling King Tutankhamun death masks symbols on a single payline in the base game. Initially, you receive just 3 free spins with a 1x multiplier, but before your free spins start, you can select from a number of stone blocks to earn additional free spins or increase the size of the multiplier up to a maximum of 25 free spins and a 6x multiplier.

In addition, during your free spins round, you are guaranteed a prize of no less than 3x the bonus multiplier times your triggering line bet. Once you have your additional free spins and multipliers added, the free spins bonus round will start. You can then retrigger free spins by landing three of the King Tutankhamun scatters anywhere across the reels, which will give you an additional number of free spins to that which you have triggered.  In theory you could trigger up to 999 free spins, although this isn’t very likely!

Pharaoh’s Fortune is a fun to play medium variance game which has a nice mix of smaller value wins, interspersed with the bigger wins, many of which come from triggering a decent free spins round.


Editor's Review

Pharaoh’s Fortune may be one of the most frequently mis-spelled slot games out there, but it is also hugely enjoyable. It’s a medium variance game, so bankroll management is key to getting the most from it, but if you do then you’ll be rewarded with a slot offering a superb soundtrack, clever graphics and engaging gameplay with a free spins round that is fair and fun to play. It’s not perfect by any means but it is certainly one of the better Egyptian themed slots.
