Pharaoh’s Dream Slot by Bally Technologies
The Pharaoh’s Dream slot is a well-crafted online video slot game produced by Bally Technologies. The game has an ancient Egypt theme and includes images of Egyptian pyramids, jewelled artefacts and ancient sarcophagi. The backdrop to the game is large open temple with a type of celestial ceiling. As with most Bally games, the colourful reel symbols take up the bulk of the screen with the various game buttons along the bottom. Each symbol features sharp graphics and rich colours amplifying the overall theme. The game does not have background music as such but does include sound effects when the reels spin and when a win is achieved.
5 Reel Ancient Egypt Slot
The Pharaoh’s Dream slot game is played over five reels with four rows and features a total of 40 paylines. At the start of each spin, players can adjust the coin denomination from 0.01 coins up to 10 coins per payline. As with all Bally slots, the game also includes an Auto-spin feature where players can choose a certain number of automated spins without clicking on the spin button, which can be useful when simultaneously playing roulette online casino games on your favourite sites. In terms of bonus features, Pharaoh’s Dream includes a Wild symbol, stacked Wilds, Scatter symbols and a free spins bonus round.
High Paying Egyptian Symbols
On the reels, the Pharaoh’s Dream slot features 3 themed symbols and six standard high card symbols. The highest paying non-bonus symbol is the Eye of Horus. Finding all five of these across the reels will result in a payout of 5000 coins on a maximum bet of 10 coins per payline. After the Eye of Horus, the next highest paying symbol is the jewelled Scarab beetle followed by the ankh. For the lower paying symbols, Bally have used the classic playing card high symbols from nine to ace.
Stacked Pyramid Wilds
The Wild symbol in the Pharaoh’s Dream slot is the image of the great pyramid. This symbol can be used to replace any of the standard game symbols in order to land a winning combination on an active payline. The Wild symbol also pays out 5000 coins for all five across the reels on a max bet. The game also features stacked Wilds. The stacked Wild symbol is also the pyramid. Each part of the stacked Wild can be used as an individual Wild symbol. Put together, the stacked Wilds form a full sized pyramid that turns and entire reel Wild.
Free Spins with a 4x Multiplier
The Scatter symbol in the Pharaoh’s Dream slot is the Egyptian sarcophagus. The Scatter symbol only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. The sole purpose of the Scatter symbol is to activate the free spins bonus round. To trigger the free spins round, players must land 3 scatter symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. Once triggered, players will be rewarded with 10 free spins.
The Pharaoh’s Dream bonus round is played on a completely separate set of reels with each symbol a slightly different colour. The bonus round is designed to boost your winnings and subsequently has a 4x multiplier on any standard line win. This means that any winning combination will pay out 4x the total bet stake.
