Pharaoh’s Gaze DoubleMax Review
Who doesn't love looking for untold riches? That's exactly what you'll get in Pharoah's Gaze DoubleMax developed by Bang Bang Games with Yggdrasil.
This Egyptian slot plays on 5-reels with 20 paylines and keeps it simple with features such as free spins and multipliers. The slot finds the right balance with features giving you enough to keep the game fresh and exciting.
Most Egyptian slots go one of two ways with the design. They are either horrendous tacky or pretty stunning. Pharoah's Gaze DoubleMax finds the balance with a solid design.
When the slot opens up, you'll be greeted with ominous music that fits the tone but still has certain notes that you'd expect to find in an Egyptian slot.
The visuals contain highly detailed artwork of different Pharaohs as well as a marvellous tomb. The gold colours sparkle and the overall tone of the design matches the music well.
Despite having quite the selection of features throughout this slot, the gameplay is still fairly easy to follow. Firstly, there are Dropdowns that are essentially cascading reels but with the chance to add wilds instead.
When the Dropdowns occur, the DoubleMax activates and doubles the multipliers. There are also gems that can be collected to add extra wilds to the reels as well as free spins. That's all there is to this slot.
Whilst it may seem like a lot on paper, the features complement each other to create a great game experience. Bang Bang Games has certainly used the DoubleMax mechanic well but has not just relied solely on it.
With the DoubleMax feature, you'd expect the maximum win to be quite high. Thankfully, Bang Bang Games has delivered a maximum win of 15,000x the stake which is pretty decent. This amount can be won during the free spins round with the DoubleMax feature and gems.
In addition to the great maximum win, this slot has an RTP of 96.10% which is above average as well as a high volatility level. The high volatility level leads to big wins but less frequently. We generally recommend players have the bankroll to sustain themselves for this sort of gameplay.
Pharaoh’s Gaze DoubleMax is a pretty fun Egyptian slot that we certainly think slot players will enjoy. There is nothing that we haven't seen before in this slot but everything is done well.
Since Yggdrasil introduced DoubleMax, we expected many developers to use it as the main feature with no additional features. Thankfully, Bang Bang Games did not do this leading to solid fun with Pharoah's Gaze DoubleMax.
