One of the coolest things we have discovered in today’s world is the plethora of ancient tombs. People from all over the world have stark differences in how they treat burial and the afterlife. Some people believe in traditional burials with a casket and headstone. Then there are those whose beliefs lie a bit more on the odd side. Egyptian pharaohs, for example, were often buried with a small amount of their jewelry and other belongings in case they needed them in the afterlife.
With all that buried treasure, could there be a better spot to loot than a pharaoh’s tomb? Betsoft’s Pharaoh King slot game is finally giving you that opportunity. Spin the royal reels in hopes of getting a taste of the pharaoh’s treasure.
Pharaoh King has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 different paylines. The paylines can be toggled in small increments using the “Select Lines” button at the bottom of the game. Your bet per line can be any amount between 1 and 5. You can also set the coin value anywhere between 0.02 and 0.50. If you just want to make a quick, large bet, there is a max bet button. There is no autoplay, however.
There aren’t many symbols in this game—just the 10, J, K, Q, A, pottery, and scarab. The largest prize you can get from the scarab symbol is 1,000 coins for a bet of 1 per line. The scatter icon can pay up to 2,000 coins for a bet of 1 per line. You can win the progressive jackpot by landing 5 scarab symbols with a max bet spin.
The wild symbol substitutes for everything but the scatter, the key symbols, and the scarab in the case of jackpot wins.
As you play the game, key symbols may appear on the reels. There are three different key symbols—red, blue and green. You have to collect them all to unlock the bonus round. Fortunately, you don’t actually have to get them all in a single spin—they will remain at the top of the screen until you’ve got them all. Once you’ve got all 3 keys and triggered the bonus feature, you’ll see a screen with a handful of pots. Select a pot to reveal a prize. You can keep clicking pots until one of the pots has a “Collect” button under the prize. If you select the pots in the perfect order, you can select all of them to reveal a prize in every pot.
If you’re looking to try Pharaoh King for free, it’s easy. Betsoft makes demo versions of most of their slot games available online. You can find them at online casinos and other slot game websites. Just do a Google search for “Pharaoh King” and give it a spin. You’ll have to sign up for an account with an online casino if you want to play for real money.
There is a caveat, though. You can’t play Pharaoh King on your mobile devices because the plugin it uses isn’t compatible with mobile devices. You’ll have to play this game on a desktop or laptop.
At the end of the day, will your journey into the land of pharaohs be filled with treasure and fortune or will this game leave you empty-handed?
Pharaoh King takes a bit of a detour from the standard high-quality design of many Betsoft games. The design isn’t bad, but it’s a much more simplistic, almost cartoonish game. There is both music and sound effects as usual.
As for the features, this game is somewhat of a mixed bag. Just like the design, the features are few and far between. There is a progressive jackpot and a bonus game, but that’s it. And the bonus game is only triggered after you’ve collected all three keys, which can take quite some time. This game could use a bit more in the way of gameplay.
It’s not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination, but Pharaoh King just doesn’t have enough to beat out some of the other great slot games o
