Online Slot Review of The Great Pyramid by Realistic Games
The Great Pyramid is an online slot by Realistic Games that has a classic gameplay and is themed to the Pyramids. It has a classic design with 1 payline and 3 reels. You will also find a Bonus Round and randomly awarded features including a Nudge, Auto Nudge, Super Spins and a series of Holds.
The Great Pyramid Bonus Game and Features
The main feature of this slot designed by Realistic Games is the Great Pyramid Bonus Round that is launched when 3 pyramid symbols create a winning combination. A new game screen will open and you will see two pyramids that are both filled with a trail of ten notes. The first pyramid is full of x2 notes and the second pyramid is full of x20 notes.
You start at the bottom of the trail and you progress along every consecutively lit note until you reach a gap in the trail, the note in the gap flickers between being lit and unlit and you have three chances to light the note and extend the trail. To do this you have to click the start button at the same time as the note is lit, if successful you will continue along the trail, if unsuccessful you have two more attempts. If you are unsuccessful after all 3 attempts, your balance will be credited and you will return to the main game.
If you successfully reach the end of the trail in the first pyramid you will go to the bottom of the trail in the second pyramid and try to reach the end of the trail there in the same way. If you make it to the top of the trail you will win the maximum prize of a x200 multiplier.
Additional Bonus Features
At the end of any non winning round you can receive up to 3 nudges. Press the flashing Nudge buttons to nudge the reels forward one symbol at a time. You can also use the Auto-Nudge button when it lights up, which will automatically nudge the reels to the best positions. The Auto-nudge feature will reset the reels to the position they were in before the nudges were offered and then automatically nudge them to the best available winning combination.
If after nudging you have not created a winning combination you may randomly be offered the Super Spin Feature, all you have to do is press the start button and the reels will spin and land on a guaranteed win.
There is also a Hold Feature which will randomly be activated after any winning spin. The reels will be held automatically, you will not be charged for an additional spin and the new win will be added to the initial win. The maximum number of possible Holds is 9 and once this number is reached you will not be offered additional holds.
Symbols and Multipliers of the Great Pyramid slot
A winning combination is created when 3 identical symbols land on neighbouring reels along the payline. The multipliers for all the symbols are listed in the paytable and are applied to the bet amount. The symbols are based on those in classic slots:
- Triple red bar
- Double blue bar
- Single green bar
- Red sevens
- Blue sevens
A winning combination has to have 3 identical symbols, except for the red and blue 7s which as well as creating their own combinations, can also create an additional winning combination with a mix of red and blue 7´s.
As mentioned above, a combination of three Pyramid symbols will launch the Great Pyramid Bonus Round. Play more pyramid slots for free at NeonSlots.
