Ever since the Luxor Casino was constructed in an Egyptian design in Las Vegas in the early 1990s, Egyptian themed games have been popular. There is something about the connotations of the Pyramids housing secret hauls of buried treasure that draws the modern gamer to apps such as Pharaoh's Fortune.
The Pharaoh's Fortune mobile game certainly does not let the gamer down. It is a five reeled, 25 pay line slots game, on which you can bet between 10p and £1 per line. Potential wins can be anything up to a massive £6,000 thanks to its progressive jackpot, so the Gods will definitely be smiling on you if you win this prize.
As is to be expected, the Egyptian theme runs throughout the game, from the detailed hieroglyphics on the column background of the reels to the ornate, gold banner with the running jackpot. The symbols comprise of Scarabs, mummies and hieroglyphic cryptograms, which all add to the Egyptian fun. Cleopatra is the Scatter symbol and will trigger the Free Spins, and the Mummy is Wild, meaning it will substitute for any other symbol.
However, it's the Pharaoh himself you really need to watch out for – lining him up will trigger the slots jackpot, so don't forget to say a quick prayer to the Egyptian God of Luck and Prosperity, Bes!
In terms of gameplay, gamers will be pleased to know that the well designed, ancient-influenced graphics do support a smooth and easy gameplay. To play, start by choosing your amount of lines and figure to bet then hit Spin. Watch as the reels spin, and the animation makes it look as if the columns of the background are spinning, which is a great feature. Checking symbol value is conveniently located in the + tab, and can be found by touching the Paytable button. Autospin and the maximum bet functions can also be found under the + key.
It's great to see that with Pharaoh's Fortunes the designers have managed to combine authentic looking, well-illustrated symbols and graphics with sharp, speedy and accurate gameplay. There is no doubt that this mobile game will become as legendary as Tutankhamen himself – after all, within this game is a treasure trove just waiting to be discovered by its explorers!
