Pyramid King is the subject of this review.

Theme and plot of the story

Pyramid King casts the player in the position of an Ancient Egyptian trader who is traveling up the Nile from Thebes to Alexandria with a caravan of camels, as shown in the game’s title.

Each of the reels is decorated with the many commodities of the caravan, ranging from sacred masks of the jackal-faced deity, Anubis, to intricate papyruses belonging to well-educated scribes.

The pyramids and mausoleums of the King serve as the game’s backdrop, and it is here that the player hopes to sell their items in exchange for a jackpot of gold stater coins.

Graphics, sounds, and animations are all included.

When compared to other ancient Egyptian slot games, the aesthetics of Pyramid King are rather good, particularly when compared to the frequently tacky images of other ancient Egyptian slot games. Designing the symbols is rather kitschy, but overall it is not too horrible.

The animations in this slot are straightforward and adhere to the norms set by the majority of basic slots. When symbols become part of a winning combination, for example, they grow in size, but they also have a little flair in the shape of little moving sparkles on the gold surfaces, which add to the overall effect.

The soundtrack music is suitably ambient so that it does not get monotonous, and it blends well with the extra musical loops used for the spin and win noises that are included.


Pyramid King is a five-reel video slot machine. It contains three rows of symbols and twenty-five winning combinations. There is a Free Spin Bonus and a Jackpot bonus (see below for details).

This is all rather basic, which is acceptable in most situations. However, in the area of Egypt-themed slots, which is a popular genre, a slot machine’s gameplay must be more fascinating in order to stand out against classics such as Book of Ra and the like.

In the game Pyramid King, there is no gamble element.

Wilds, bonuses, and free spins are all included in this game.

The Wild symbol may be used to replace any other symbol, with the exception of the Bonus and Money symbols.

A combination of three bonus symbols anywhere on the reels pays out one time the player’s stake and activates the Free Spins Bonus. The player begins with a total of ten free spins.

While you are playing the Free Spins, a symbol is selected to act as an expanding symbol. When this symbol appears on the reel it is now on, it grows to fill the whole reel it is currently on. The Free Spins Bonus may be re-triggered an unlimited number of times throughout the game.

Money symbols have a randomised value attached to them. Money Respin Feature is activated if six or more Money symbols appear on a single spin of the reels.

While the Money Respin Feature is in play, the only symbols that may appear on the reels are Money symbols and blank spaces. To begin with, the player is granted three respins. For the duration of the Money Respin Feature, all Money symbols remain in place and unmovable. Each time a new Money symbol lands on a spin, respins reset to three again.

When the player is out of spins, they receive the total of the Money symbol values they have collected. If players collect fifteen Money symbols, they will also be eligible for the Grand Jackpot, which is worth one thousand times their original wager.

Some money symbols are labeled with the words Minor or Major, respectively. Upon landing on one of these, the player is awarded the associated jackpot prize.

During the Free Spins, the Money Respin Feature may be activated, which can result in even larger rewards.

Bet sizes, return on investment (RTI), and variance

96.50 percent of players received their money back in this game; this is far higher than our benchmark of about 96 percent.

There was a wide selection of bets available on the site we tested, ranging from a minimum wager per spin of $/£/€0.20 up to a maximum stake per spin of $/£/€200.00.

The volatility of this game is high, which makes it a good fit for our favourite slot machine methods, which we will discuss below. Our slot techniques are designed to provide the greatest amount of volatility feasible.


Pyramid King is an above-average video slot. However, it is situated in a market category that is already oversaturated in this regard. There are a plethora of slots that are themed after ancient Egypt. So why did you choose this one?

Its primary benefit over other slots is that it has a high(ish) return to player (RTP) and high volatility, which allows it to function rather well with our recommended strategies.

Even if you aren’t concerned with these features, you may find it difficult to differentiate this slot from the many other slots that use similar gameplay principles and have artwork and themes that are almost identical to this one.
