Was it my lucky day yesterday? Yes and no… Because although I heavily won on the next upcoming new NetEnt video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality unfortunately it was only (‘real’) first preview play on the free NetEnt video slot in its ‘fun play’ practice version…
And the inevitable consequence of that fact is of course I was playing with ‘fun money’ and all of my winnings were ‘paid out’ in ‘fun money’ too…
Video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality game details
Video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality isn’t really your ‘ordinary’ NetEnt video slot and this of course is immediately visible by the games ‘pyramid-shaped’ design of 5 reels with 3-4-5-4-3 positions. This gives the game 720 ‘ways-to-win’ (3 x 4 =12 x 5 = 60 x 4 = 240 x 3 = 720) instead of the normal fixed or adjustable bet lines and winning combinations are formed by 3 or more identical symbols on consecutive reels from utmost left to the right.
Another ‘special game characteristic’ of video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is the ‘Avalanche’ feature by which the symbols drop from top to bottom (like an avalanche) on their positions in the 5 columns (instead of by ‘spinning reels’). What’s more, every time a winning combination is formed the symbols of that combination will explode and pulverize after which a new (and free) avalanche (yes, very much like a ‘free re-spin’) will follow to fill up the thus created empty spaces. In theory this could go on and on (free re-spin on free re-spin) until infinity, as long as winning combinations are formed in consecutive game rounds. The Avalanche feature was first used and made famous by one of NetEnt’s most popular video slots, being of course Gonzo’s Quest.
The new NetEnt video slot also has an ‘Avalanche Multiplier’ which means that after every 3 consecutive avalanches (with thus winning combinations that were formed) a multiplier will increase with 1 up to a maximum of multiplier x 10 (which will be evidently applied on the game round winnings).
Last but not least video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality has Wild symbols that will only appear when the symbols on the top-positions of the 2-nd, 3-rd and 4-th column are part of a winning combination. These symbols will turn into a Wild (of course substituting for all other symbols to create the highest paying winning combinations) and as long as they keep on generating wins in successive game rounds they will hold their position(s) as a Wild on the column(s).
Other details about video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality are:
- Maximum coin value is € 2.00;
- Minimum bet is € 0.10 and the maximum bet is € 200;
- The slot’s Return-to-Player percentage is 96.48%.
Video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality game play
As usual I play video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality on bet level 10 and with coin value € 0.10 so I bet € 10 per game round (level 10 x 10 coins per level = 100 coins x coin value € 0.10 = € 10). However, other than usual I decide to set the game on ‘Automatic Play’ with 500 game rounds to literally ‘see what’s happening’, and boy… did I have a great time!!!!
Normally I don’t tend to be so lucky when ‘preview playing’ a new NetEnt video slot but this time I really ‘hit it big’ and on several moments. After having played a little bit more than half of the 500 game rounds I had generated a total win of € 400 (see the screenshot above), while moments before I even had around € 5.550 showing on the counter!
What struck me while playing the slot was that winnings come ‘in waves’ because as soon as on the top-positions of the 2-nd and 3-rd reel simultaneously Wild symbols appear (after the original symbol on that position was part of a winning combination) it’s very easy to again get a winning combination in the subsequent free ‘avalanche’ (re-spin). As you can see below this led me to a multiplier of my game round winnings of x 5.
These series of free Avalanches that were occurring on several occasions during the preview play session also on several occasions led to ‘Big Win’ situations:
And in the 393-rd game round I REALLY got lucky with below Mega Win!
In the end (with only 2 game rounds of the 500 still to go) the final result of my very exciting preview play gaming session on video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality was a profit of € 177 (see below) which makes this ‘try out’ of a new NetEnt video slot one of my most beneficial ever!!!
