Pharaohs Tomb from Novomatic is an Egyptian themed online slot game. The hieroglyphic symbols in this slot game appear on 5 reels with 10 fixed pay lines. Wagers start at 0.04 and can be raised to 5 per pay line, making a maximum wager of 50 possible on each spin.
This game offers players a free spin bonus feature with expanding wilds as well as a multiplier in the form of an upgrade to the value of the symbols in any winning combinations landed in the free spin round that contains a wild.
Novomatic Pharaohs Tomb Reel Symbols
Novomatic Pharaohs Tomb, unlike many other Egyptian themed games, feature hieroglyphics as the on-reel symbols, not just gems and crowns and statues. The symbols have a great looking neon glow around them and feature interesting animations with each win. The low value symbols consist of A, Q, K and J card symbols. These are the lowest value symbols and offer a maximum pay out of 100 times your wager.
The hieroglyph symbols start off with two golden feathers which are worth between 10 and 200 times your wager. The blue water glyphs share the same value as the feathers. The cobra is worth a maximum of 250 times your wager.
The green scarab is worth 300 at maximum payout while the hawk offers a pay out of 400 times your wager. The Ankh is the highest value standard symbol. It offers pay outs of between 100 and 500 times your wager staked. All symbols require players to land at least three matching symbols from left to right on an active pay line.
Novomatic Pharaohs Tomb Wild Symbol
Novomatic Pharaohs Tomb features an Egyptian burial mask as the in game wild symbol. The main function of these symbols is to take on the value of any symbol required to complete a winning combination that it is part of, but it has some additional features as well.
During the free spins round, the wild symbol will actually increase the value of the symbols by one level when it is part of a win combination. The wild will also expand across the reels to form a wild sarcophagus. The sarcophagus will add to your free spins when it appears, with up to 5 additional free spins on offer.
Free Spins Feature
Like bonuses available in the FIFA World Cup betting, Novomatic Pharaohs Tomb has a 12 free spin bonus round. This feature is triggered by the Pharaohs Tomb scatter symbol. This symbol does not need to be lined up on an active pay line to trigger the free spin feature; you just need three or more scatters appearing on the reels. The 12 free spins are taken at the wager value and pay lines that were active when the special feature triggered.
Pharaohs Tomb Gamble Feature
Novomatic Pharaohs Tomb lets players potentially double their wins with the in game gamble option. Whenever you get a winning pay out, you can click on the Gamble button to be taken to a new screen where you can make a guess whether a random card draw from a deck will be red or black. Guess correctly and your won wager is double. Guess incorrectly though and you will lose your entire wager amount.
