Pyramid Pays Review
Pyramid Pays is a highly volatile 5-reel, 243 payline Egyptian-themed slot developed by iSoftBet that can see players grab themselves random multipliers worth up to 100x their stake thanks to an innovative Pyramid Pays feature that's triggered during free spins.
With a bit of luck on your side these random cash prizes can be doubled thanks to a special booster scatter that may make an appearance, making this slot pretty lucrative!
We won't beat about the bush, this slot is pretty bog-standard and looks like practically every other Egyptian-themed slot on the market. The reels are set in front of the River Nile and an ancient Pyramid, whilst statues of an Egyptian King stand proudly on either side of the game screen.
Low paying symbols are your standard 10, J, Q, K, A and high paying symbols are stereotypical Egyptian iconography such as the eye of Horus, scrabs and Tutankhamun's mask. The game's special symbol is a pyramid with the word 'BONUS' or 'DOUBLE' on it.
We needn't go into too much detail about the game's soundtrack, as you'll know exactly what to expect if you've played an Egyptian themed slot before.
Navigating Pyramid Pays couldn't be easier, there are only three buttons players need to be aware of and these are located on the right-hand side of the game screen. From top to bottom there's an autospin button (that players to set up to 1,000 automated spins), a large spin button and a stake selection button.
If you want to access the game's sound settings or paytable, you can do so by pressing one of the two small black buttons in the bottom left-hand corner of the game screen.
This high volatility slot has an RTP of 96% and a maximum win potential of 3,840x the player's stake. The max win is a little on the low side as far as a new 2021 slot goes, but don't get us wrong if you're a fan of this style slot then you could do much worse.
All in all, we feel somewhat indifferent about Pyramid Pays. The Pyramid Pays feature itself is quite novel and we genuinely enjoyed the excitement around that upon triggering a bonus... But we can't help but feel this game's main strength lies in the Ultra Bet feature, and as a UK player without access to it, this ultimately seems like another fairly run of the mill Egyptian-themed slot.
