Pharaoh’s Fortune Video Slot review
Pharaoh’s Fortune is an IGT slot which is very popular in land-based casinos. The revamped version has 5 reels and 15 paylines (with the original version having 10 paylines) – this slot has a more classic Vegas feel to it. You will also hear the slot has The Bangles’ Walk Like An Egyptian song playing as you spin the reels which is great.
You can play Pharaoh’s Fortune from 15p to £30 a spin and it has an ancient Egyptian theme. Look out for the Pharaoh’s Fortune logo symbol as 5 of them will reward you with 10,000 times your line bet. The main attraction is the Pharaoh’s Fortune Bonus feature which is triggered by getting the Pharaoh’s Fortune bonus symbol on reels 1, 2 and 3 simultaneously – the number of paylines increases to 20 by the way.
Once in the feature, you will start with a 1x multiplier and 3 free spins. You can increase the number of free spins by turnover over the stone blocks. These will reveal either ‘Free Spins +1’, ‘Multiplier +1’ or ‘Begin Free Spins Bonus’. Once ‘Begin Free Spins Bonus’ is revealed, the bonus round will commence.
Every free spin is awarded an additional bonus of 3x your initial line bet times the award multiplier you may have received in uncovering the stone blocks. There’s up to 25 free spins with a 6x multiplier available initially with retriggers possible up to a whopping 999 free spins.
Pharaoh’s Fortune is an absolute classic and the revamped version has better graphics, animations and sounds but still retains its original charm that made it such a popular game. It’s a medium variance slot with wins and frequency being nicely balanced.
The bigger wins will come in the feature normally but don’t expect to win big all the time – it will keep you coming back for more however! Pharaoh’s Fortune is by far my favourite IGT slot – now it’s been revamped, it’s even better in my opinion as you can play on your mobile/tablet device. I also like Cleopatra II by IGT and the brilliant Book of Ra Deluxe by Novomatic.
