Mega Pyramid Slot Review
Ancient Egypt in all its glory is always a popular theme amongst games of any kind, and video slots are no exception. Experience the desert storms of this 5-reel,30-payline video slot with cloned symbols that bring great wins, and the Free Spins feature, where the random symbol is chosen to become the cloned symbol throughout the feature. The Pyramid Eye is going to be of great help in the conquest to conquer the mighty desert, as it thunders down and clones symbols that provide wins. Let your balance flow like the river of Nile, and enjoy this visually pleasing Red Tiger Gaming title.
As expected, game symbols are all done in the style of ancient Egyptian drawings, which directly relate to their mythology and the way they saw their gods. In Mega Pyramid, we have a total of 10 symbols,4 of which are high-paying, 5 low-paying symbols and of course the sticky Scatter symbol, an Egyptian Queen. Being a sticky Scatter, the Queen can stay on the reels for a random amount of spins, making it easier to trigger free spins. The highest paying symbol is the mighty god of the underworld, Anubis. The next in line are Scarab and Horus. Also, there is a cool-looking Scroll and card suits acting as low-paying symbols.
The gameplay is very simple and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to fully understand how everything functions here. The 2019 release features five reels, four rows and benefits from 30 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. The commands are simple and they include the usual a Spin button, located on the bottom right side, and a Turbo option, to speed up the spinning process. The Stakes setting (from £0.20 to £100 per spin) is located on the bottom left side as well as the Autoplay mode, where you can activate automatic spins and sit back and relax.
As previously mentioned, the first special feature of this game is a powerful one. It is the great pyramid, or the Pyramid Eye, randomly triggered throughout the game, and when it strikes down thunder and reveals a symbol, it will clone the revealed symbol all over the reels, resulting with high payouts. The Pyramid Eye is also active during the Free Spins feature, triggered when Scatter appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. It can happen that the Scatter symbol becomes sticky and stays on the reels for a random number of spins. During the Free Spins feature, gamers get 10 freebies and the Pyramid Eye picks one random symbol to be the cloned symbol for the remainder of the feature. Freebies can be retriggered many times.
The desert may be empty, but your pockets may not be, because the maximum payout for Mega Pyramid is an amazing sum of 5,000 times the bet. The symbol that pays the most is Anubis, who seems to be a generous fellow, offering 4,500 coins for five of a kind. The Free Spins feature is not easy to trigger, but can offer mouthwatering wins, thanks to cloning symbols. Mega Pyramid’s RTP is a solid 96.18%
Mega Pyramid on Mobile
Even though ancient Egyptians had no smart phones, punters of today can enjoy this video slot game on their mobile devices and desktops. The experience will not be changed and you will feel the same playing it on a smaller screen or on a classic desktop, thanks to outstanding graphics and a very good quality of the game.
+ Amazing visuals
+ Free spins with cloning symbols
+ The Pyramid Eye feature can surprise you with decent wins in the base game
– A common theme
– Free spins not easy to trigger
– No Wilds
The Red Tiger Gaming title does not offer anything way too special, despite it being appealing to the eye. Some may like the features offered by the 2019 release, while others may decide to try out titles that are more action-packed. Mega Pyramid benefits form a fair number paylines and has a tasty maximum payout, but what we did not like is the fact that it takes time to trigger freebies. The atmosphere is intriguing, especially when the Pyramid Eye thunders like crazy, with the sky going all dark. All in all, the video slot could be recommended to the spinners willing to seek their fortune in ancient deserts of North Africa, and is it’s also great for beginners who are brave enough to defy the will of the gods and discover long-lost riches.
