Low value symbols in the game come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, with 10 through to Ace. If the right amount of paying combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.15 and x0.6 the player’s stake.
Pink, green and red Egyptian accessories depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.4 and x2.5 the player’s preferred bet.
High value symbols are represented by green, purple and red Egyptian gods. These symbols can offer between x0.8 and x4, depending on the amount of winning combinations that land on one go.
Landing three, four of five bonus pyramid scatters will award the free spins feature, offering seven, nine and 11 free spins respectively.
Finally, wild text symbols can drop into play, substituting for all symbols other than the pyramid scatter.
With the games PopWins mechanic, symbols that form a winning combination will disappear to be replaced by two new symbols. This increases the reel-set with every consecutive win, with a maximum reel-set size of 5×6. The reel-set will reset to 5×3 on each turn.
During the free spins feature, the maximum reel-set size is 5×8, and this expanded size will stay active for the duration of the feature.
When activating the free spins, players have two game modes to choose from. They can either select a feature with larger 2×2 or 3×3 symbols available, or select the other option with guaranteed wilds on each spin.
In both free spins game modes, mystery symbols are on offer. These symbols will be placed across the board and will eventually reveal identical symbols once the spin they land on finishes.
When the free spins game begins, a random symbol will be chosen to be an expanded symbol, with only wild, bonus and mystery symbols unavailable to be chosen. After forming a win, these expanding symbols will fill out their entire reel to increase the win potential.
The game also has a win multiplier that starts at x1 and increases by a value of one with every consecutive win, resetting in-between turns.
This multiplier value does not reset in the free spins feature and can start at x5, x6 or x7 depending on how many scatters trigger the bonus game mode.
