Pharaoh’s Treasure Video Slot review

Pharaoh’s Treasure is a 5 reel 20 payline progressive jackpot slot based on Ancient Egypt. It’s quite similar in style as the popular IGT Pharaoh’s Fortune slot game with a very similar layout. It has 2 great bonus feature (of which 1 can lead to the jackpot) and a Gamble feature. You can play for as little as 20p a spin to a whopping £200 a spin.

The wild is the Pharaoh’s Treasure and if you get 5, will trigger a 3,000 coin bonus. Look out for the Tutankhamen Gold Mask symbol as 3 to 5 will trigger the Tutankhamen’s Tomb Bonus round. You will then enter the bonus game and see Tutankhamen’s Tomb filled with treasures.

A torch flashes in the dark tomb to reveal where the treasures are. Watch where the treasures are as you have 3 to 5 attempts (depends on number of symbols you got to trigger the feature) to find them. Here you are guaranteed cash prizes. However, if you find 3 Tutankhamen Gold Masks instead, you will trigger the progressive jackpot.

There is also a Free Spins feature which you can initiate by getting 3, 4 or 5 Scarab Beetle symbols anywhere on the reels. This give you a guaranteed win before you even start. For example, if you trigger the feature with 5 Scarab Beetle symbols, you will get between 50 and 150 times your stake.

Once that is awarded, you will begin with 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier. You can re-trigger more free spins (another 10) by getting 3 or more Scarab Beetles. Furthermore, you can win entry to the Tutankhamen’s Tomb Bonus feature – if you do so, you will go there and then come back when finished to complete the remaining free spins.

There is also a Gamble feature where you guess the card colour or suit to double or quadruple your stake respectively. Pharaoh’s Treasure is a great jackpot slot game where Tutankhamen and Cleopatra both feature. Unfortunately it doesn’t come close to IGT’s classic and I much prefer Cleopatra II (also by IGT) for that matter. In order to be convinced, I think I need to win the progressive jackpot!
