The overall look is one that blends cartoon like casino motifs with classical Egyptian artwork and we’ve got to say it really works. Even though this machine is getting quite dated now, it’s still one of the best looking titles in the IGT catalogue. Everything about it – including the golden heads that are adorned with sunglasses and the dancing mummy on the funeral boat, are played for laughs, and this is one slot that will bring a definite smile to your face.
If you’re a fan of 80’s pop divas The Bangles, then you’re going to be in for a treat on the reels of Pharaoh’s Fortune. Throughout the game the tune from their classic Number One hit Walk like and Egyptian plays non-stop. Get into the bonus game and you’ll get a blast of the vocals too.
This really does help set the scene and in addition to this classic soundtrack you’ve got a whole bunch of cool effects that help punctuate the reel action in all the right places. This is a phenomenal production that’s worth playing just for the atmosphere.
The base game in Pharaoh’s Fortune is as simple as they come. You’ve got a five reel set up that boasts ten pay-lines and as per usual, you can adjust all the bet amounts and pay-lines to suit your playing style. The low number of pay-lines when compared to other IGT slots actually works in the player’s favour, as you get a really great pay-table that offers a lot of big money wins.
In addition to all this there’s a old fashioned Scarab scatter that pays out prizes for combos of two or more anywhere on the reels, a logo signature wild and a pharaoh’s head bonus symbol.
In order to gain access to the Pharaoh’s Fortune bonus game you’ll need to stop in three or more of the special pharaoh’s head bonus symbols on any active pay-line on the first three reels. This takes you to a special second screen game where you get to pick blocks in a wall. These will either reveal extra free spins or multipliers and you get to keep on picking until you reveal the take spins now symbol.
When you’ve got your spins and your multiplier set, you’re off to the special second set of reels in Pharaoh’s Fortune. These have a completely different symbol set and you get double the amount of base game pay-lines to play on – giving you a total of twenty winning chances across the grid. Here you’ll even get paid out a bonus prize if you somehow fail to stop in any winning combinations on your spin.
This is a very lucrative little feature round and one that you’ll never fail to walk away from a winner.
Slot Professor Says
I’m a big fan of Pharaoh’s Fortune. It’s the IGT slot that offers you a classic twist on the Cleopatra formula, which in my opinion is a little overdone. One of the best things about this game is that it’s very economical top play, with a low spin cost, and its high paying base-game has got the power to really deliver the wins. When you look at the metrics here then there really are a lot of reasons why you should be playing this machine on a daily basis.
What really gets me about this title is the overall production values. The sound is out of this world, reminding you of better times in the 1980s every time you get into the bonus game and you’re encouraged to walk like an Egyptian. The graphics are incredibly well styled and imbue a kind of cool flavour on this classic casino trope. You can’t help but fall in love with this machine, which really gives you a lot of pleasure from the first time you load it up.
Do I have any cunning strategy tips here? Not really, except for the fact that this is one title where you can really go for glory on the reels and not worry about the bonus round too much. Set your stake high and go for it, as this is one title that has the power in the pay-table to pay you a big win right off the bat. There’s no need to worry about fiddly features, you can max it out and play it big in your search for your very own Pharaoh’s Fortune.
