Pharaoh King Slots

Pharaoh-KingPlayers will find in Pharaoh King a BetSoft slot that has a bit of a retro feel to it. While this developer has a number of great looking and modern slots to offer, this is not one of them. The theme is not exactly innovative either, built around the same old Ancient Egypt topic, like so many other slot machines are these days. The Egyptians and the many accomplishments they had still amaze people today, and a lot of developers seem to want to capitalize on that.

There are 20 bet lines spread on the slot’s 5 reels. If you place its highest bets, you can expect to win as much as $10,000 from a combo of symbols. The list of features is a bit too short for my taste, with a scatter symbol, a collectable bonus symbol and a wild being the ones you can rely on.

Features of Pharaoh King

I’ve seen plenty of games out there that will give you a lot more to work with, but even here you can expect a couple of symbols with special features. They’re pretty much the ones you will find in any regular slot machine, so no surprises here.

The Pyramids, the greatest accomplishments of the Egyptian people, are still around today, about 4,000 years after they were built. They’ve received an important role in Pharaoh King, acting as the scatter symbols. The only reward you should expect from them in Pharaoh King is a cash prize, a 2,000x multiple of the line bet, offered whenever you have five Pyramids on the reels. You can also get paid with fewer scatter symbols, as few as two, but the value will not be anywhere close to the one offered by five of them.

The Wild symbol is far easier to recognize, with the four letters of the word being written on a slab of stone, with two torches placed on both sides. As any wild can do, this one will also substitute for any other symbol, with the exception of the ones that have an extra role (scarab, pyramid, key).

You will get a Key symbol once in a while, colored in blue, green and red. Get all three keys as you play, collecting each one as it appears, and you will unlock with them the access to a bonus game.

Betting options and jackpots

The bets one can place in Pharaoh King will reach $100 in value, using between 1 and 5 coins on each of the 20 paylines you can activate for a spin. The denomination is the standard one for BetSoft, starting at $0.02 and getting up to $1.

There are a couple of good prizes you can go after, one of them being the one offered by five scatter symbols (2,000x or up to $10,000), the other being a five Scarab combo (1,000x or $5,000).

Design and symbols

The design is a bit cartoonish, colorful and simpler than I’m used to seeing from BetSoft. This does seem to be one of their older slots though, and even though it doesn’t look as polished and animated as the others, it’s still a good looking design. It has a large number of playing card icons among the few that are Egyptian related, so that’s one thing I’m disappointed with.

Symbols: Wild (wild), Pyramids (scatter, 2,000x), Key (bonus), Scarab (1,000x), Canopic Jars (500x), Ace (300x), King (200x), Queen (100x), Jack (75x) and 10 (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it, not with so many other Egyptian slots out there. If you’re at a BetSoft casino, there are plenty of other slot machines of theirs that are much more impressive.

The Pharaoh King slot machine is offered through the BetSoft platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
