Pyramid Plunder is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Slotland. It contains all the usual Egyptian artifacts combined with stunning 3D animations and three unique twists on modern day slot features. You can win free spins, open multiple bonus rounds, benefit from a moving wild symbol, win a $4000 jackpot and play for a progressive jackpot too.
The Pyramid Plunder slot is not designed in an orthodox way and appears to be set in the distance rather than in the foreground of the screen. The reels look like a temple with a golden sphinx on the righthand side and tablets along the bottom containing buttons. A silhouette of a pyramid is located on the left, this has a part to play in the slots themed feature.
At first glance the reel icons appear to be charcoal drawings, or etched onto tablets of stone. It’s not until a winning combination is formed that you realize colorful, animated icons are simply hidden under a carpet of sand which is blown off in an awesome display of animation.
The reel icons include Cleopatra, scrolls, sarcophagus, scrolls, mummies, scarab beetles, camels, Egyptian Ankh’s and dogs. Authentic music, reminiscent of the recent Mummy films, plays continuously with a catchy beat which adds to the gameplay.
Pyramid plunder can be played as a penny slot, with various betting options available up to $/£/€100 per spin. Bets are controlled by choosing from a number of coin values and/or by altering the number of lines played per spin.
Other options such as sound, auto spins, paytable and help menus can be accessed using the tabs in the top righthand corner.
The Golden Scarab is a moving wild symbol, when it appears it will move from it’s own icon and take the place of another icon on the reels to create a winning combination. This is a unique twist on the standard wild symbol, it takes some getting used to but works really well.
The Golden Mummy symbol can unlock more winning opportunities. When the symbol appears it waits until all winning amounts have been shown, then, switches the reel to another position which fills the space with new reel icons. These new icons often create more winning combinations, but it’s not guaranteed.
The pyramid silhouette on the left contains four different blocks, filled by the respective icon appearing on the reels. Once all four are collected the ‘tomb’ bonus round starts, and you are asked to pick 3 tiles (from 9). Depending on your choice you will receive either free spins, bonus cash, another free pick or a map symbol.
The free spins play at the end of the bonus round and the map will reveal a route to another period if you unlock the feature again. The beauty of this is that every pyramid offers a bigger bonus, with Nefertiti’s and Rameses Pyramid paying the most.
At first glance, Pyramid Plunder looks plain but as soon as you hit the spin button you realize that isn’t the case. It really does have a lot to offer.
