Here we have the Pyramid Quest for Immortality Slot Game. The quest for immortality is grand-sounding enough, but what about the quest for 3,600,000 coins?
That’s a quest that any gamer could salivate over, and that’s the quest that quirky Slots developer Net Entertainment presents us with here in this five reel, multiple Bet Ways online slot. That takes us on an innovative Avalanche of a tour through Ancient Egypt in a way only NetEnt can.
For anyone not familiar with the Bet Ways system, it means essentially that we are looking to land any three matching symbols anywhere on consecutive reels, left-to-right. This abandons the whole three-row, fixed-payline system, and suits NetEnt as it is a development studio that likes to push our gameplay boundaries.
In the Pyramid Quest For Immortality slot, our reels are actually stones in a pyramid. A suitably Egyptian-sounding score accompanies the action and adds a layer of extra mystery to our quest. The reels are decorated with suitably classic ancient Egyptian symbols – Pharaoh, Royal Queen, Scarab, Eagle, Cobra – as our high-paying symbols and 10s through Aces on papyrus as our low symbols, proving that the Egyptians were way ahead of their time.
If we match three symbols in consecutive pyramid columns in the Bet Ways pay structure, those symbols crumble and disappear in what NetEnt have called Avalanches. Each Avalanche, brings a fresh chance to land a winning combination, and it may seem obvious to say but the more winning three or more symbol combinations we land the greater our win potential, thanks to Pyramid Quest For Immortality’s multiplier bonus structure.
With each winning combination, we light a gemstone on a Sphinx guard’s staff. Light three gemstones with three consecutive winning combinations and we earn a win multiplier for all remaining consecutive Avalanches. So every three wins, this multiplier increases by one up to a maximum of x10. Landing a Wild symbol or multiple Wilds on columns 2, 3 or 4 causes them to stick for the following Avalanche, thereby increasing our win potential for consecutive Avalanches.
Without a dedicated bonus feature NetEnt have thought outside the pyramid to create the Avalanche Multiplier system, aided by the Bet Ways pay structure. Landing consecutive Avalanches and seeing those gemstones light up on the mysterious Sphinx Guard’s gets us a step closer to the immortality promised by the mysteries of ancient Egypt. Well, the 3,600,000 coin jackpot anyway. It wouldn’t be a guarantee of long-life but it would pretty damn well make the rest of it one hell of a blast.
