Mega Pyramid is the newest in the long line of ancient Egyptian-themed video slots. Created by Red Tiger Gaming, who are usually the experts in creating Asian and Chinese themed games, Mega Pyramid represents a new direction for the developer.
Mega Pyramid has five reels and thirty paylines that comes with unique cloned icons plus s a free spins feature where one symbol will clone throughout.
The visuals in Mega Pyramid is of a high and impressive standard. With a desert environment and a mighty pyramid as the game's backdrop, players will notice playing card suit icons plus a scroll and three higher-paying Egyptian gods in the form of animals represented on hieroglyphs.
By far the top paying symbol is the jackal-headed Anubis. Landing two, three, four or five of these on a payline and players will pocket a payout of x0.5, 3, 30 or 150 times their bet stake.
Features of Mega Pyramid
Free Spins feature - the crucial feature round is activated by landing the Egyptian queen scatter symbol on the first, third and fifth reels on the same spin. Players will then go on to play ten free spins. At the beginning of the round, the Pyramid Eye chooses one icon at random. This selected icon will act as a cloned symbol throughout the entire round. Players can re-trigger more free spins here too if they land three scatter symbols on the same free spin – with no limits.
Pyramid Eye feature - is where players could see thunder and lightning randomly strike on any base game spin, heralding the arrival of the Pyramid Eye. One icon is then picked at random above the reels, with the symbol then cloning in multiple directions. A new payout calculation then following on with the newly cloned symbols remaining in position.
There are a plethora of Egyptian-themed slots to pick from, yet Mega Pyramid offers something for punters that is a little unusual. Primarily, the visuals are outstanding. That’s true of both the design and the brooding audio.
The Pyramid Eye can deliver some exceptional results, particularly so in the free spins round. Should the Pyramid Eye throw up a high-value icon here, then Mega pyramid can provide some riches fit for a Pharoah with a top payout of x5,000 a players bet stake on each free spin.
