Netent’s video pokie Pyramid: Quest for Immortality takes you on a wondrous and breathtaking journey back in time. The game takes players on a challenging quest through ancient Egypt that will lead to adventures never before imagined.
Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is 720-bet multiway, 5-reel video pokie that features Wild substitutions, Wild Generations, increasing multipliers and the exciting Avalanche feature. In other words, there is a lot going on at the same time.
The beautifully themed pokie Pyramid: Quest for Immortality has 5 separate reels, with 3 rows on the first reel, 4 rows on the second reel, 5 rows on the third, 4 on the fourth and 5 on the fifth reel. Every win is scattered from left to right, meaning there are no regular win lines. Instead, there are 720 win possible positions.
Bet levels and coin values per game round are each adjustable, respectively from 1 to 10 and from $0.01 up to $2.00. The minimum bet per spin is $0.10 and the maximum bet is $200.
The Avalanche Feature
The Avalanche feature is a feature that we have seen in games like Gonzo’s Quest: symbols “drop down” on the reels, just like a mini avalanche. When a winning combination is formed, all symbols of that combination(s) will explode and disappear, after which they will be replaced by new symbols. As long as winning combinations appear in consecutive spins the avalanches will continue.
Wilds and the Avalanche Multiplier: added excitement
Every time an Avalanche reaches three successive wins, the multiplier will increase by 1x. It can go up to an amazing 10x and will stay at 10x until there are no more winning combinations.
There are also wild symbols in the game and they can be cluttered across the reels. In effect, you can get several spins in a row with a wild symbol on the first three reels, guaranteeing a win on multiple spins in a row. This means you can get massive wins out of one spin, especially when playing medium to high stakes.
These features will surely appeal to the high stakes player as the possibilities are almost endless. With a maximum payout of 3,600,000 coins this pokie can surely produce the big wins.
The theoretic payout of the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality video pokie is 96,48%, which is considered great and puts it just outside our top 10 of best-paying pokies.
Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is an interesting and well-designed pokie: just what we would expect from Netent. The increasing multipliers and frequent wilds can help push some massive payouts. However, due to the high variance nature of this pokie, you will also get some long dry spells in between. It also lacks a true bonus feature.
For our taste, this pokie leans a bit too much on those super high payouts that will undoubtedly come if you play long enough. The base game lacks some depth and excitement. Great for high rollers looking for a life changing win, not so great for players looking for some good old pokie entertainment. 3 out of 5 stars.
