Megablox Pyramids Review
The original Megablox slot, Megablox 777, was released in early 2022 by 1X2 Gaming. The slot itself was a modest success which led to 1X2 Gaming reimagining the new mechanic in Megablox Pyramids.
There are no reels throughout this slot and only 10 paylines. Instead, there are 4 different types of reel sets that drop throughout randomly during each spin. It's incredibly simple but provides thrills and suspenseful moments to players.
When the slot opens up, you'll be greeted with neon boxes with Egyptian symbols throughout. There are different images of the Sphinx, Pharaohs, ankhs and pyramids to complement the Egyptian theme. There are also subtle hieroglyphs at the bottom of the screen which is a cool attention to detail.
Megablox Pyramids features a black background that makes the symbols pop out even more. As for the audio, there is an incredible musical score played throughout with bells, stringed instruments and horns which deliver something that strangely enough fits the visuals. It feels both modern and traditional which fits this slot perfectly.
When you spin, you won't find traditional reels. Instead, the reels will spin 4 different types of reel sets that you can lock at any moment. That's all there is to this slot!
It's incredibly easy to pick up and play. This is ideal for slot players wanting to recreate the magic of fruit machine slots with a little bit of a twist.
According to the developer, there are varying volatility levels throughout this slot but then we also found that the volatility was actually medium. This falls in line with our experience of the slot so we'll go with medium volatility.
Megablox Pyramids contains an RTP of 95% which is under the average. This is disappointing to us as and a surprise from 1X2 Gaming. However, we can say that it's not too low to make the game unplayable.
Sadly the maximum win for this slot is only 220x the stake, which is quite low for an online slot. We initially thought that the maximum win was 11,000x the stake as the developers stated that players can win up to 11,000, but this translates to about 220x the stake.
Megablox Pyramids is a strange slot that some players will love and others will not. The simplicity will appeal to slot purists looking for straightforward gameplay.
We imagine modern players will not like this slot at all. However, we do not think this game is intended for them. Whilst we did have some issues with the win potential, we still think Megablox Pyramids is worth a spin if you love classical slots and are looking for the next step.
