Enter the burial chamber of an ancient Egyptian ruler and try and find hidden treasure in Pharaoh’s Tomb, a 5 reel, 10 payline slot powered by Novomatic. Look out for a bonus feature that offers 12 free spins complete with expanding wilds. Play from between 10p and £100 per spin.

Visually, Pharaoh’s Tomb is a fairly simple affair – the plain black reels are set in the interior of a pyramid. The symbols include playing cards alongside an assortment of nicely drawn Egyptian hieroglyphs including wings, water, horned viper, scarab beetle, bird and the Ankh which is the top paying symbol. The golden pharaoh’s sarcophagus is the wild, substituting for everything apart from the scatter.

The Pharaoh’s Tomb logo is that scatter – land 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Games feature where you’ll be awarded a dozen (12) free spins. The sarcophagus wild really comes into play during the feature.

Appearing on the middle 3 reels only, it replaces 1 of the hieroglyph symbols and expand to fill the entire reel or reels. The lowest value hieroglyph symbol is removed and replaced by the symbol with the next highest value. The removals keep on coming with every wild until the only hieroglyph symbols remaining are Ankhs.

The sarcophagus can also add extra spins to your tally whenever it lands during the feature – 1 of them will add 1 free spin, 2 adds 3 free spins with an extra 5 on offer if you hit 3 of them. That’s potentially 17 free spins in total.

Pharaoh’s Tomb is in many ways a typical Novomatic slot – the design is above average from this developer, both in terms of look and sound. It’s not overloaded with features but the free spins round is a good one thanks to the wild extras. The variance is in the medium range with the feature round the key to triggering a decent payday.

Novomatic set the standard for Egyptian-themed slots with Book of Ra Deluxe – Pharaoh’s Tomb doesn’t quite reach those pyramid high heights but it’s still an entertaining slot. Get those wilds working in the feature and there’s treasure on offer in this Egyptian adventure.
