Pharaoh’s Fortune


Pharaoh’s Fortune is the first low cost Egyptian themed slot from IGT. It comes with only ten pay-lines (which does seem rather low in the light of slot games such as Wolf Run, Kitty Glitter and Siberian Storm) making this one of the smallest IGT slots we’ve seen for a long time.

The game mechanics here are excellent. The graphics are smooth and the animations are near flawless. Slot machines, even those designed by IGT have often enjoyed a reputation for being noisy bleepers that don’t encapsulate any aspect of good audio design; however, this clearly has changed with Pharaoh’s Fortune which has one of the best sonic soundtracks of any slot game we’ve ever played. The reel symbols are nice and clear, drawing on the images and hieroglyphs of Ancient Egypt as opposed to relying on the same poker symbols we’ve seem time and time again. The background pictures two jackal headed gods holding up the reels and even the playing buttons are deeply stylised. If this slot machine’s theme represents a glance back to the past, then the set up really smacks of a look to the future.


So now we’ve discussed the beautiful good looks of this charming slot game, is there enough game-play within Pharaoh’s Fortune to keep the real action hungry slot aficionado happy? Well you’ve got both a wild symbol and a scatter (that unsurprisingly come with some beautiful in symbol animations when you hit a win) that can ramp up your bankroll alongside a free spin bonus game that’s quite the hit.

Stop in three of the Golden Pharaoh symbols on any of the ten pay-lines in Pharaoh’s fortune to activate the free spin bonus round. Before you’re taken to the IGT standard second set of symbol-enriched reels you get to play a ‘what’s in the box’ style round prior to this. Here you see a large wall with many different stones in it, pull out the stones to reveal extra spins and additional multipliers with a special stone ending this round and taking you over to the reels. The best thing about this free spin game is that every single spin must stop in with some kind of win making this an incredibly lucrative sub-game.

Whilst the market is completely flooded with Egyptian themed games and Cleopatra clones, Pharaoh’s Fortune is one game that manages to stand head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. When you just look at this game in terms of the quality of the graphics and the audio you’ll see it’s one of the best designed slots you’ll find anywhere on the internet and for that reason alone, you should make this one of your preferred slot games.

Play-wise, there is nothing wrong at all with Pharaoh’s Fortune as the free spin round can be incredibly lucrative. Of course, the bigger money prizes can’t be had from this slot and whilst this may put off a number of so called slot jockey high rollers, if you’re more modest and prefer to play slots for both entertainment purposes and to win a few drinks tokens, then this is the perfect slot game for low cost fun where you can still hit it big. However, IGT have thought of everything and if you are looking to play this game at the maximum spin cost (somewhere around $100/£100 a spin) then it’s got the potential to also keep the bigwigs happy.
