Guardians of the Pyramids Review
We’ve seen more than our fair share of slots with a mythical theme here at Slot Gods, but there are very few offering 60,000,000 possible Ways to Win.
So naturally, we were more than intrigued to take Guardians of the Pyramids for a spin, and explore all those incredible bonus features for ourselves.
There’s no denying that Guardians of the Pyramids is bright and colourful, but it puts a definite twist on the usual Ancient Egyptian theme. Northern Lights have reimagined the pyramids as spaceships, which have the power to trigger symbol splits and rampaging Mummy Wilds.
It’s certainly different – although the graphics are a bit out there for our tastes. But it looks and sounds OK, and as we all know, it’s the gameplay that makes or breaks any slot!
Just decide how much to wager and hit the Spin button to get started. During base gameplay, the pyramid spaceship starts to shake, as the sky darkens and a storm looms – heralding the arrival of a reel modifier.
Mummy Wilds are distributed randomly on the reels and can come as single symbols, doubles or quads. Or the Symbol Split feature could be awarded, randomly selecting symbols to divide into two, or four.
Land three pyramid Scatters to activate the bonus round, which launches 5 Guardian free spins. A goddess alongside the reels awards up to 5 additional spins, as well as a random multiplier worth up to 10x. And a win is guaranteed with every spin, throughout the bonus!
The game’s top payout of 11,000x your bet isn’t the biggest we’ve seen, but it’s a long way from being the smallest too! Just watch out for that high volatility, which could tear through modest funds incredibly quickly.
Players in some jurisdictions outside the UK can Buy the Bonus at 49x their current wager. Be aware that this doesn't necessarily mean you’ll win enough to cover the cost and approach this option with caution!
Leaving aside the rather strange image of a pyramid spaceship hovering above the ground, it turns out that Guardians of the Pyramid packs quite a punch in terms of gameplay and bonus features. The random modifiers help to spice up the base game and the free spins, while the win multipliers in the bonus can generate some big prize payouts.
It won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but if you enjoy quirky games with some exciting features and good winning potential, we can recommend you give Guardians of the Pyramids a try. Just be sure to explore some demo spins first, if you’re playing with limited funds, so you know what to expect.
