Ash Gaming Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe Slot Review and Free Play

Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe: Demo

Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe is the latest in the exceedingly long line of video slots that have taken ancient Egypt for their inspiration. This one is from Ash Gaming and is played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine. There are 3 bonus features on offer here offering pick me prizes and free spins. There’s also a chance to land a progressive jackpot prize. Play on all devices from 20p to £500 per spin.

A chamber within a pyramid is the setting here – the reels are flanked by a pair of animal gods and include A to 10 values and the gods Bastet and Horus. The Egyptian queen is the best of the standard symbols, paying 500 coins if you land 5 on a line. That top payout is matched by the wild which performs all the usual substituting duties.

Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe comes with 2 feature rounds which are triggered when the Bonus symbol lands on reels 1, 3 and 5. You’ll be offered the choice of these 2:

Tomb of Tutankhamun Bonus feature – you’ll head to a new screen and be presented with a selection of 9 squares. Behind them are objects which award cash prizes. Find a key and you’ll enter a new chamber where better prizes are on offer. Locate the sarcophagus key and you’ll progress to the jackpot round. Choose 1 of the 3 statues to win cash prizes or the progressive payout.

Curse of the Ancient Free Games feature – 15 free spins are awarded here. On alternative free spins, 1 symbol is chosen at random and removed from play. Once again, the sarcophagus key unlocks the jackpot pick round – land 3 sarcophagus keys and you’ll pick once the free spins have played out.

If you want to spice up your action, you can play the Hi-Roller Spins feature – this adds a special hieroglyph symbol. When it hits, it transforms into a wild or bonus or awards multipliers or instant win prizes. It’s not a cheap option though – adding the hieroglyph symbol to reel 3 will set you back 10x your total stake. You can add the hieroglyph to reels 1, 2 and 3 for 20x times your stake.

Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe is an enjoyable take on the classic Egyptian-themed game – the visuals are solid enough and the haunting backing is beautifully done. We’ve seen the pick me round and free spins combination many times before. They both offer a little something extra courtesy of the sarcophagus keys.

We landed the bonus round at regular intervals but found them quite hit and miss as far as returns go – this is because it’s a highly volatile offering. Overall though, there’s plenty to like here and does the original justice. If you’re a fan of the ancient theme then Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe is well worth closer inspection. Alternatively, Pharaoh’s Ring by Novomatic is worth trying.
