Pyramids of Dead
Theme of The Game
Pyramids of Dead belongs to the Cat Wilde series, and as with the others we’re seeing an Ancient Egypt theme being used. The modern graphics are a given, this being a Play n GO slot machine, and the setting for the action is somewhere next to the pyramids, with large pillars placed to the sides of the reels. You will notice the design’s high quality, it’s one of the strengths of this series.
When it comes to the symbols that are being used, the first five will be of low value, and they show icons going from 10 to A, the top cards on a deck. The list then continues with the Scarab, Anubis, Pharaoh, and Cat Wilde. Pyramids are used for the wilds, and they pay as much as the Cat Wilde symbols (1,000x per combo).
Play n GO is betting big on Book-style slots, and Pyramids of Dead is only the most recent to belong to that category. They’ve created a number of excellent games in this category, so definitely give their a collection a look if you love the genre.
How To Play It
There is nothing unusual about the betting range that’s used in this case. $0.10 to $100 is a normal amount to put in, for a slot with 10 lines.
Pyramids of Dead gives you only 10 active lines, and there are 5×3 reels on which these are arranged. A combination of 3+ symbols will get you paid, but it’s during the free spins that most of the magic happens.
Since we’re looking at a slot machine that belongs to the Book genre, there will be a mixed symbol inside, taking on the roles of both wild and scatter. In this case, they chose the Pyramid for that role, so you will be able to create new winning combinations with its help. It needs to land at the right time and in the right spot, but it can help out with those smaller wins. Pyramids can also get you paid directly, 1,000x the stake for a combo of 5.
Whenever there are at least 3 of these Pyramids in view, the game will also trigger a feature for you. It could be the free spins, but it could also be a bonus game or a simple cash prize, so this is the part that’s different compared with other Book slots (where the free spins are guaranteed when you have the required symbols).
Prize Round, which can pay up to 1,000x the stake.
Instant prize of up to 500x.
Free spins with one expanding symbol. There can be more expanding symbols, if you retrigger the feature.
The rewards that Pyramids of Dead will pay are better than those from older Book slots, but not by much. In exchange for that 10,000x jackpot, you have lower odds of getting to the free spins (you might get a direct prize instead).
I appreciated both the medium volatility and the RTP of 96.20% that this slot machine can have.
Overall, I feel like Play n GO has another decent Book slot on their hands. The graphics are good, but the theme is the standard one, so some may be tired of that look. Mostly though, it matters that the volatility is lower and the rewards better than what competitors are offering.
