Play Power Strike Egyptian Riches slots for free or real money
Power Strike Egyptian Riches is a five-reel, four-row slot machine created by Bally. It offers forty fixed paylines, which cannot be toggled on or off at our leisure. Available special features include stacked Wilds, the Power Strike bonus, the pick special feature and a free spins round.
How it Looks
The background image looks good, offering a great view of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. They are inscribed all over the background, though the blue-and-red colour scheme makes them a bit difficult to make out. Two statues hold up the Power Strike orb, which glows with the power to unleash some incredible jackpots.
Symbol designs are split between playing card royals and a variety of Egypt-themed icons. The four letters are colourful, but Bally has made no effort to make them fit with the Egyptian theme. In contrast, the urn, ankh, jackal, golden statue and scarab all draw inspiration from ancient Egypt. A painting of Ra is the Wild, while a blue orb is the Scatter. An unrestrained blue orb is the Power Strike Scatter, while a red orb is the free spins Scatter.
If you were hoping for the jackpot values to be progressive, we will have to disappoint you. All four are fixed jackpots, meaning the top single prize you can win is 1000x your total stake. This pairs well with the medium-high variance offered by this release! The RTP for this title is 96.45%, which well above the current industry average.
You can bet anywhere between $0.16 and $12.80 on each spin. This is an okay betting range, but we had hoped to see bigger wagers made available. We can change our bet by selecting the coin denomination and then using the plus and minus buttons to change our total stake. Find a bet that fits your budget, and start spinning! You can spin the reels manually, or with the help of the Auto Play feature.
During normal gameplay, Scatters will appear with a variety of attached prizes. These include cash prizes ranging from 10x to 1000x, three to five free spins and activations for the four fixed jackpots. To score these prizes, players need land at least one Scatter on reels one to four and a Power Strike Scatter in reel five. The more Scatters you have on the first four reels, the more prizes you unlock! You cannot unlock the major or mega jackpots if any Scatter has an attached free spins round.
Of course, you can always draw the Power Strike Scatter without any accompanying Scatters on reels one to four. If that happens, players activate the Pick special feature. We are taken to a separate pick field with sixteen options, and the ability to choose three of them. Pick prizes are identical to prizes you could unlock from Scatters during normal gameplay. It is possible to win additional picks. Up to four extra picks can be scored in one bonus round.
Activate the free spins round, and all the prizes you have won from Power Strike are combined into a single reward. This prize is then placed on reel five, which is locked during the special feature. Each time a Scatter lands during free spins, it can do one of two things. It can grant between three to five free spins, or it can win the cash prize present on reel five again. Scatters cannot grant additional free spins more than five times.
More Fantastic Free Slots
The four available jackpots we can win in Power Strike Egyptian Riches are fixed jackpots. They are not increased by placing wagers.
You get three picks to start, and you can unlock four more. That means a maximum of seven picks in a single special feature activation.
There does not seem to be a restriction limiting this from happening. The odds are quite low, but it is possible with a whole lot of luck!
You can win the mini and minor jackpots while free spins are active. The major and mega jackpots cannot be won during free spins.
The game features an RTP of 96.45%, which is above average when compared to other slots.
