Platinum Pyramid slot review
Here’s a curio from leading online slots developer, Cryptologic: an Egyptian-themed game (yawn) with some suitably Vegas-style bling thrown in for good measure.
So far, so mash-up. But does it stand up as more than just another Egyptian game?
On the Reels...
The game is a 5-reel, 20-payline online slot with some reasonable betting ranges thrown in – coin bets start at just $0.01, with $5 the top bet. But on the reels, instead of a bunch of Indiana Jones-styled tombs and sarcophaguses, we get 9-through-Ace symbols lined with lights, an Ankh, an Egyptian jar, the Eye of Ra, and a Lotus flower, all blinged up.
Find the Egyptian Priestess and Win 7,000 Coins
The Egyptian Priestess is the Wild and subs for all regular symbols other than the Scatter. She’s a beauty who packs some serious punch if you hit five on the reels as she awards 7,000 coins for a full house.
Discover the Pyramid Scatters to Earn up to 15 Free Spins
The Scatter Pyramid – here looking more like the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas – triggers a free spins bonus round when you hit three or more of them anywhere on the reels.
You can bag yourself five free games for hitting three Scatters, 10 free spins for four Scatters, and a top whack of 15 free spins for hitting five Scatters anywhere.
Sounds good? Yep, not bad, and they sound even better when you discover all free spins wins are tripled.
While Platinum Pyramid offers some fairly simple delights, the graphics are pretty non-descript and cheap-looking, to be fair.
Both of those games are fine as alternatives if you warm to the charms of Platinum... but for some more solid credentials in the Egyptian realm you could do far worse than head for Novomatic’s classic Egyptian-themed Book of Ra Deluxe or IGT’s timeless adventure-themed Cleopatra online game.
