Today the new NetEnt video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality was launched and as usual you can already completely costless try out the game and experience its exciting gameplay by playing the free video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality practice fun play version on our fansite!
Nothing more intriguing and mysterious as the Ancient World of Egyptian pharaohs, the Gods they worshiped and their efforts to obtain immortality. It’s therefore no wonder NetEnt has, besides the today released video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality, already launched two other slot games in the past that are equally themed by the wondrous era of the famous pyramid builders.
Earlier ‘Egypt themed’ NetEnt video slots
The first NetEnt slot that was released with its theme based upon the culture that emerged some 5.000 years ago at the banks of the River Nile (and as such by many is regarded as being ‘The Cradle of Civilization’) was video slot Secrets of Horus. Video slot Secrets of Horus handles about an aspect of Old Egypt that for centuries remained one of its best kept secrets: the meaning of the millions of hieroglyphs that decorate the thousands of tombs, pyramids, temples and artifacts from that time and that were found all over the country.
The symbols on the reels of video slot Secrets of Horus consist of those hieroglyphs (and ‘only’ hieroglyphs, so no traditional ‘A’, ‘K’, ‘Q’, ‘J’ and ‘10’ slot-symbols) and its ‘secrets’ (of course in the form of substantial wins) can be revealed by Wild substitutions, Wild- and Scatter wins, a Free Spins mode and win multipliers.
The second ‘Egypt themed’ slot that was developed and launched by NetEnt was video slot Egyptian Heroes. This game shows the ‘heroes’ of the old Egyptians, being their deities like the cat-goddess Bastet, the sun-god Ra and the ‘crocodile’-god Sobek. This game also has a wide variety of ‘special game features’ ranging from different kinds of symbol substituting Wilds and Scatter symbols that trigger Free Spins to the highly innovative ‘Golden Bet Line’ feature that pays out winnings multiplied 2 to 5 times.
Video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality most ‘Egyptian’ of all ‘Egyptian’ NetEnt slots?
Video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality in a way can be considered as a ‘mix’ of the above mentioned video slots as we not only see two Egyptian Gods depicted on the slot (the God of ‘light and life’ being the sun-god Ra and the god of ‘darkness and death’ being the ‘Lord of the Underworld’ Anubis) but we also see hieroglyphs as symbols on the play screen.
Regarding its ‘special game features’ the slot equally boasts various characteristics to spice up your game play such as the Avalanche feature (by which the symbols drop as blocks on their positions on the columns), substituting (‘sticky’) Wilds generated by the Wild Generation feature, the free Avalanches (= re-spins) after game round winnings and the Avalanche Multiplier that can even have the game pay out winnings multiplied times 10.
Comparing video slot Secrets of Horus and video slot Egyptian Heroes with the just released video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality it can be argued the latter is the most ‘Egyptian’ of the 3 games. This is due to its play screen that doesn’t consist of the regular ‘5 reels and 3 (or 4) rows’ but it is shaped as a real ‘pyramid’, with the 5 ‘reels’ holding 3 – 4 – 5 – 4 and 3 positions. giving the game its 3 x 4 x 5 x 4 x 3 = 720 ‘win ways’ by which winning combinations can be formed (instead of by a certain amount of fixed or adjustable bet lines).
