I guess we’d all like to live forever if only to find out if our favourite football team will ever win the league. Pyramid: Quest For Immortality is another great game from NetEnt who can do no wrong it seems. This game doesn’t quite offer you the chance to live forever but it does give you the chance to win some great cash prizes.
This game has a bit of a different look to it with a pyramid shape for its reels. The top row has just one symbol, the second has three and the three below that have five symbols each. The reels don’t really spin in this game, the blocks that contain the symbols simply drop down into place.
The game has a great look to it and it really portrays an ancient Egyptian pyramid perfectly. At the top of the reels are the golden statues of Horus and Anubis who guard the pharoah’s tomb.
There are a fantastic 720 different ways to win in this game. Wins can be achieved via matching symbols in adjacent reels. Does that huge amount mean it’s more expensive to play the slot? Well the minimum cost of playing is just £0.10 and the maximum £100, that’s really good and everyone should be able to find a level they can comfortably play at.
The symbols in this game include a sphinx, a Cleopatra mask a beetle and a snake. The Wild symbol is the Golden Ankh on a purple background. This can substitute for other symbols to get you wins, which with 720 different ways to win isn’t all that difficult. Unlike in most games there isn’t a scatter or bonus symbol. Filling out the reels are the Ten to Ace playing card symbols which have a slight Egyptian feel to them.
The Symbol Avalanche isn’t something to duck out of the way of when it happens. Getting a winning combination is of course the name of the game but here it can just be the start of great things. The symbols that make up the winning combination you’ve just had will suddenly crumble to dust. That leaves some vacancies and the symbols above them drop down to fill those places. Now the reels are reassessed and that could mean you’ve got more wins. Then the avalanche process is repeated and does so until no wins are created. Even better after three successive wins the multiplier increases by 1x up to a maximum 10x.
The Wild symbol is always handy but look out for the Wild Generation When they appear on the second, third and fourth reels they stay in place when forming a winning combination. This can really help to get you some wins especially alongside the Symbol Avalanche.
Playing the game is relatively easy, take a look through the rules though and have some free games. There’s an autoplay feature that allows you between ten and a thousand automated spins.
An interesting and well thought out game from NetEnt which always seems to be the case. The look of the game is great and the soundtrack won’t have you reaching for the mute button. The Symbol Avalanche is a brilliant feature and can really get you some good wins with increasing multipliers.
