The sand, the heat and the pyramids await those who are willing to take a punt on this Egyptian-themed online slot from Novomatic; it’s called Pharaoh’s Ring, it offers players an optional extra bet and you can find out how it all works right here.
Pharaoh’s Ring is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty paylines; delicate, ornate frames constrain those reels which sit against a backdrop of a sun setting over pyramids stretching off into the distance.
The high value symbols will be familiar to fans of this genre and include the Pharaoh, the winged woman, the cat and the purple scarab beetle; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The Book of the Dead is both the wild and the scatter symbol and it will replace all others to form winning symbols except for the Pharaoh’s Ring; the ring is an optional wild symbol which you can buy for an extra 25% of your stake by clicking the appropriate button above the reels.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the Book of the Dead scatter symbols anywhere in view and your initial reward will be ten free spins. Before the spins start the book will reveal one random symbol which, when landing, may expand to cover all the positions on that reel. It can also pay out as a scatter symbol for an extra win.
Wins can be gambled using the ‘Gamble’ button below the reels and this is a simple red/black, 50/50 punt to double up your win but a wrong guess will lose it all.
Pharaoh’s Ring doesn’t add a great deal to a very crowded genre but the ability to add the extra wild is welcome, as is the slightly enhanced free spins round so it’s worth a look; it comes with an RTP of 95.16%.
