How to play Pharaohs TombClick here for a print friendly version
Novoline has an outstanding track record when it comes to the development and deployment of Ancient Egyptian themed slots and Pharaoh’s Tomb is one game that is well on the way to attaining legendary status for itself. The game has proven to be a long time hit in land based casinos all over, and now the online version of the game has offered access to all of the excitement to a whole new audience of players. If you’re someone that originally enjoyed the game in a land based environment then you’ll be pleased to know that this conversion remains completely faithful to the original. If you’ve never played either the original or online versions of the game before then worry not as we’ve got you covered with absolutely everything you need to know about it, from the simple case of placing your bets to the more advanced parts of the game such as the special features.
We will indeed kick off with the simpler part of the game and it is something that has to be done on every slot. Few games offer only a single staking plan and in fairness, that level of flexibility is more than welcome and Novoline always makes sure that both small stakes players and high rollers can get plenty of entertainment out of their games. In this particular case, you’ll be required to select both a number of win lines and a bet for each line.
The lines themselves top out at ten and that is the default amount, although you can knock that number downwards if you so choose. Your line bet is placed on every line that you wish to play and the two are multiplied together to make for your total stake, which is debited from your credit balance each time you spin the reels. When those reels are rolling, you’ll be attempting to match up all sorts of great looking symbols, some of which are based on the theme and some are a little more stock, such as the playing card icons.
You can see what these symbols are worth at any time by checking out the pay table, and potentially modify your bets accordingly. These symbols pay out from left to right, with three or more required for a prize. Those combinations are helped along by the Pharaoh’s Tomb itself, which acts as a wild card and can fill in for any other symbol except for the game’s logo. Things get even better too, as the wild card is an expander, meaning that it can grow to cover an entire reel, turning three whole symbols wild in the process.
Your key to the bonus round on Pharaoh’s Tomb is the aforementioned game logo, and all you need are three anywhere in view to get the action rolling. Doing this successfully will automatically award twelve free spins, but that’s not all that there is to look forward to when entering the round. The wild card that is so valuable in the main game becomes even more special here as all non-playing card symbols will be replaced with additional wilds and they all take on the expanding property that sets this joker apart from the crowd. Basically, you’ve got a chance of filling the entire board with wilds and scooping the incredible prizes that go along with doing so. That alone is enough reason to make sure that you’re playing for the full available number of win lines, as missing even one combination of five wilds can be game breaking!
Pharaoh’s Tomb also makes use of the gamble feature that is prevalent among Novoline slots. A winning spin is all you need to activate the feature and you have an even shot at doubling your cash prize immediately. If you manage to gamble successfully then double the original prize is yours and you then have the further option of taking your recently increased win and heading back to the reels, or trying your luck once more in the hope of doubling your doubled prize!
