Slot developers have created countless games based around ancient civilisations. One of their favourite civilisations is Ancient Egypt. There are thousands of Egyptian themed slots to be found both online and in brick and mortar casinos. Platinum Pyramid is another of these, but this slot looks like a love child between Egypt and Las Vegas. Full of very historically incorrect bling, this game has all the usual suspects when it comes to symbols.
Platinum Pyramid has five reels and twenty paylines. The games betting range goes from 0.20 up to 100 coins for all twenty lines to be active. This wide wagering margin means that Platinum Pyramid may appeal to a wider audience than if it had to rely purely on its graphics and game play. Platinum Pyramid does not have a progressive jackpot though, nor a very good standing one, so experienced players will most likely skip this one.
Platinum Pyramid is a shiny slot, with all of its symbols done up to look like they have been plated in platinum. What little can be seen behind the reels looks either like a night scene in Egypt, or a night scene in Vegas. Palm trees and a shiny pyramid sit below a star studded sky which may or may not be in the Egyptian desert. The reels themselves are pretty plain, with only a patterned border. The buttons at the bottom are simple and set against a grey or platinum background. The sound track is stereotypical of a slot, with nothing particularly unique about it.
Platinum Pyramid is a game full of symbols that we can see in many of the best real money pokies. They are a bit shinier than we usually come across, but otherwise do not stand out from the slots’ crowd at all. Winning combinations cause them to animate, but again you may as well go and get a cup of tea while they do as you wont be missing much. 9 through to Ace are at the bottom of the paytable, and have been dressed in a patterned border and some shiny platinum. A golden flower, the Eye of Ra, a sarcophagus and a blue Ankh make up the rest of the group with the golden flower being worth the most.
Platinum Pyramid has very few features to keep players coming back for more. The wild symbol has the usual action in that it replaces all other symbols in the game except for the scatter. It is also the highest paying symbol, landing you the games standing jackpot of 7000 times your line stake should you find five of them in a row on a payline, from left to right. This wild is the Egyptian Queen, or Egyptian lady.
The scatter symbol is the Platinum Pyramid of the games name. This can be found all over the reels and does not have to line up from left to right for a payout. This symbol will grant scatter wins as well as free spins. The amount of spins is dependent on how many scatters you have found.
