Egyptian Fortunes

Try and claim some of the Pharaoh’s treasure in Egyptian Fortunes, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. Specific combinations featuring standard symbols can trigger free energy spins. There’s also a free spins round where the reels feature only 3 standard symbols plus wilds and scatters. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The interior of a palace or pyramid is the setting here. You’ll see flaming torches, ornate pillars and lots of treasure. On the reels are lower value A to 10 symbols plus 4 higher value statues of Egyptian gods. The most rewarding symbol is the Pharaoh himself. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these and you’ll win a payout of 2.5, 30 or 50 times your total stake. There’s also a wild that can land on all 5 reels in the base game. It offers payouts of up to 250 times your total stake per payline.

Unusually, a standard symbol win can trigger some free spins here. You have to land a very specific combination to unlock these Energy Spins. A 5 of a kind winner made up of 10, J and Q symbols awards 5 Energy Spins. A 4 of a kind win made up of the A, K, dog or bird statues will get you 4 energy spins. A 3 of a kind winner made up of the cat, bull or Pharaoh award 3 Energy Spins.

Egyptian Fortunes also comes with a standard Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing the bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then receive 6 free spins. Before the feature begins, a scroll will spin to reveal 3 standard symbols. These are the only symbols that will be in play throughout the free spins alongside the wild which can hit on reels 2 and 4 only.

The number of free spins on offer in the feature might be small but they can deliver some pretty chunky results if you land a trio of higher value symbols. The volatility here is in the medium to high range. We enjoyed Egyptian Fortunes. The graphics are very well done and the soundtrack fits the theme perfectly.

The online casino shelves are groaning with Egyptian-themed slots. Egyptian Fortunes is one of the better ones. The range of extras isn’t massive but get lucky with those special symbols in the free spins round and Egyptian Fortunes could live up to its name.
