The Pyramid Of Ramesses Online Slot Review


Developed by slot manufacture Casino Technology (CT), The Pyramid of Ramesses is an online slot featured at Bet365. Looking through other CT online slots, I noticed a common theme. Many of their slots appear to be heavily inspired by existing intellectual property and slots by bigger manufacturers (although I’m sure their attornies can make a compelling case that they’re legally distinct). Here are some of the least unique slots at CT:

  • Groovy Powers
  • Dwarf Mountain
  • The Great Warlord

Other than lowbrow slots, CT offers an advanced virtual gambling platform to several online casinos. Although CT doesn’t provide software to Bet365, online gambling giant Playtech does. In 2014, Playtech cooperated with CT and filled the casino’s library with new CT slots.

The Pyramid of Ramesses’ theme is based on ancient Egypt and the Pharaoh Ramesses. There aren’t any details within the game which that tell us which Pharaoh Ramesses (there were 12 in the dynasty) inspired the slot. However, it’s safe to assume Ramesses II is the Pharaoh in question. Ramesses II helped bring Imperial Egypt into its golden years.

Despite being a CT creation, Pyramid of Ramesses is a decent online slot. It’s entertaining enough and has acceptable bonus features. The Pyramid of Ramesses is a great game as long you are doing something else while playing it.

Special features in The Pyramid Of Ramesses

Two important features in the Pyramid of Ramesses are the scarab expanding wilds, and the pyramid scatter. If a wild scarab lands anywhere on reels 2, 3, or 4, it expands to occupy the entire reel it landed on. An expanded wild does not remove any pyramids that may have hit on the same reel, so it is possible – and very lucrative – to trigger the pyramid scatter while one or more of your reels are wild.

The free games feature in the Pyramid of Ramesses activates when 3-5 pyramids appear on any reels. Once the additional payout is received during the scatter, the slot awards 15 free games.

Here are the three other special features included in this online slot:

  • Bonus – To activate this slot’s bonus feature, three pyramid symbols must land anywhere on reels 2, 3, or 4 during the free games feature. On the bonus game screen, a pyramid built out of five rows of stones appears. Each stone is hiding either a multiplier or the word collect. The multipliers can accrue until a maximum of 200X is reached. The multiplier increases the winnings accumulated during the 15 free spins.
  • Jackpot – One of the few best features in Pyramid of Ramesses is the progressive jackpot bonus. If five Ramesses symbols appear on a complete payline, the player will win the progressive jackpot. As of October 2016, the progressive jackpot is $26,782 and climbing. To qualify for the progressive jackpot, the maximum amount of lines must be played and the total bet will determine the progressive amount received.
  • Double – Double is similar to the “gamble feature” in some other games. After every payout, the player can risk it all to win double. The slot lists the double up limit as £2,500,000, so unless you run like god you probably won’t hit this limit.


The Pyramid of Ramesses is no different from many other online slots. It features the minimum number of special features, and its mechanics are similar to many other slots. Although the slot is not that impressive, it does have a reasonably competitive progressive jackpot. Unless you have a particular interest in Ancient Egypt, The Pyramid of Ramesses probably won’t be your cup of tea.
