Legend of the Pharaohs is a Barcrest video slot released in 2017. It offers gamblers a 5x3 playing field with 20 fixed paylines. It allows you to bet between $0.20 up to $500 per spin, giving a wide range of players a chance at trying out this title. The game is centred around the free spins feature, as all its bonuses are attached to it. During free spins, you can activate Colossal symbols, Wild reels, and Symbol eliminators. The Big Bet option also has its own special feature, called the Pharaohs bonus.
As the name clearly states, the theme is decidedly Egyptian and relates to the pharaohs. The backdrop is inside a pyramid, with stone walls surrounding the reel and an eerie blue glow filling the room. The reels have a similar background, with golden pillars on its left and right side, and a golden roof acting as barriers separating the reel from the backdrop. The title uses Barcrest’s standard user interface, which was slightly adjusted to fit into the theme better, though it retains its functionality perfectly.
Symbols include playing card icons such as 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as unique symbols like scarabs, birds, the Eye of Horus, and ankhs. The blue pyramid featuring the slot’s logo is the Scatter, while the Wild is a golden block symbol with the word Wild written on top of it.
Collecting three or more Scatters rewards ten free spins. You are incentivised to collect more than three as when the bonus is activated with four or five Scatters, you get two or three free spins bonuses active at once.
Gameplay and Features
The first of these bonuses is the Free Spins Wild Reels, which turns one of the reels fully Wild. That reel remains Wild until the end of free spins, or another bonus is awarded while its active.
The second is a symbol eliminator, which will purge lower paying icons from the playing field – starting with the lowest paying one, and being able to eliminate a total of five symbols for a single bonus round.
The third, called Wild symbols, simply transforms the awarded symbol into a gold-plated Wild. That icon will remain Wild for the duration of the bonus.
Finally, one symbol can be chosen to be made into a massive 3x3 icon that will occupy the second, third and fourth reel. As with other bonuses, it lasts until a new one is awarded or the free spins expire.
It is possible to add additional free spins by collecting Red pyramids, which only appear during free spins. Collecting one, two or three Red pyramids will award one, two or three new bonuses, as well as additional free spins. Once active, it gives you the choice of staying with the existing bonuses and spins, or switching to the new ones.
During Big Bet, collecting two golden pyramids can reward the Pharaoh’s bonus. This feature has three tiers for $30, $40 and $50 Big Bets. The wheel contains various cash prizes, and if you fail to collect three Scatters needed to activate free spins, it acts as a consolation prize.
The game’s maximum jackpot is 500x the wager. The title is a medium volatility affair, allowing players a good balance between solid wins and frequent features. The RTP is 96.1% for normal gameplay, and 98.1% for Big Bet.
