The deserts of ancient Egypt are setting of Platinum Pyramid, an online slot by NextGen Gaming. The game has five reels and 20 adjustable paylines.
Its reel symbols put a platinum shine on the mysterious culture, and included among the reel symbols are a Wild and a Scatter. The main bonus feature is a free spins round.
The betting range is wide, and the controls used to place bets, spin the reels, and access various settings and information screens are easy to navigate. The graphics are clear, and the soundtrack includes casino-like effects.
Platinum Pyramid Reel Symbols
Platinum Pyramid online slot features four high value symbols, six low value symbols, and two bonus symbols. The high value and bonus symbols are themed, although the low value symbols do not look too out of place.
The high value symbols include a canopic jar, a lotus flower, a turquoise ankh, and the eye of Horus. A priestess holding a crook and an ankh, and a pyramid covered with platinum are the bonus symbols.
The low value symbols are platinum-coloured 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A card symbols.
Betting and Autoplay
At the start of Platinum Pyramid, the number of paylines must be selected, and the coin value must be set. Both the Lines and Bet boxes have arrows pointing to the right and to the left, on either side.
Clicking the left-pointing arrow decreases the number shown in the box, while clicking the right-pointing arrow increases it. When the numbers in both boxes show the desired number of lines and coin value, the Spin button is selected.
The Bet Max button is selected to place the maximum bet without having to click either the Lines or Bet arrows.
The Platinum Pyramid Autoplay feature can be used to make the slot play itself. The desired number of spins to be played by the game are set by selecting the arrow buttons on either side of the Autoplay box.
The feature will begin when the Play button is selected. The Advanced button provides access to further Autoplay settings.
Platinum Pyramid Wild Symbol
The Platinum Pyramid priestess Wild symbol can pay out and it can act as a bonus symbol. When it pays out for five of the same on an active payline, it pays the maximum payout.
As a bonus symbol, it can substitute itself for other symbols. It won’t substitute for the Scatter, but it will substitute when it can help other symbols make a pay table combination. When that happens, the combination pays its highest value.
Platinum Pyramid Scatter and Free Spins
The Platinum Pyramid Scatter symbol can pay out and trigger the bonus feature from any position on the online slot reels. At least three symbols need to land on the reels to form a winning combination.
If three Scatters land on the reels, five free spins are awarded. If four Scatters land, 10 free spins are awarded, and if five Scatters land, 15 free spins are awarded. Any payouts won during the bonus feature will be tripled, and the feature can be retriggered if three or more Scatters land on the reels.
