This winter, Stakelogic has taken our coveted Slot of the Week award on an expedition to Ancient Egypt with its new title, Pyramid Strike.
With an RTP of 95.80 per cent and two volatility levels to choose from, this 5×3, 20-payline video slot incorporates a Super Stake mechanic which allows players to increase their initial bet to improve their chances of landing the main bonus feature.
“The legends of Ancient Egypt have always been a popular theme for software providers to explore, and we’re very happy to present a new take on the genre in our Pyramid Strike slot,” said Olga Bajela, CCO at Stakelogic.
“Featuring Stakelogic’s signature Super Stake mode and an innovative new bonus mechanic that awards huge cash prizes, we’re sure players are going to love taking it for a spin.”
In the game, players will be tasked with lining up a range of symbols including pharaohs and ancient gods in order to trigger a maximum prize multiplier of up to x3,140 their selected stake.
Moving onto special symbols in the game, scarab beetle wilds will substitute for any regular base game symbol in order to create winning paylines, while golden pyramid icons will activate the slot’s Pyramid Strike feature.
Starting with the Pyramid Strike bonus, this feature stays present throughout the base game, with players able to view the range of available payouts in a table to the left of the reels. In order to access them, they need to land three or more pyramids in a single spin, with each additional icon taking them one rung up the ladder towards bigger rewards.
Moreover, scatter symbols are the key to unlocking Pyramid Strike’s main free spins feature. Triggered whenever three scatters appear on the reels, players will be transported to a new screen where a free spins wheel is displayed. Here, the player clicks a button and will be awarded a random number of bonus games and a multiplier.
With these multipliers increasing the value of their wins by x2 or x3, and up to 30 bonus games to win from, by landing three subsequent scatters, players will also be able to extend the feature up to three times.
Finally, all wins that are collected can be increased with the title’s gamble feature. Here, players will be asked to correctly guess the colour or suit of a card to double or quadruple their prize, and can continue doing so until the maximum win is achieved.
