The Pharaoh’s Fortune is a second generation game that aims squarely at the mega market that the Cleopatra slots pioneered. As a second generation offshoot, it is expected to be bigger, better, sexier, and potentially more rewarding than the Cleopatra series. Many, including me, think it is superior and certainly more exciting. But to be fair, the two games have different play styles, so some people will prefer to stick with the Cleo games.
We all remember the 1987 Billboard Number 1 hit song “Walk Like an Egyptian” by the American girl band, The Bangles. Well, if you like it, you can listen to a version of it while playing Pharaoh’s Fortune. Perhaps Pharaoh’s Fortune is simply preferred by souls living on the other side of the big pond, as it is loved more than Cleo there, while visitors to Vegas are more attracted to the Pharaoh style of play it seems.
Almost every slot machine has a Bonus Round, a Welcome Bonus or some other iteration to draw you in or keep you playing and parting with your stake. Pharaoh’s Fortune is no different. Many people use the free spin Bonus Round to increase their stake at no cost to their piggy bank. It certainly adds to the fun. You get a “pick and choose” round before the free spins. When you finally get to the Bonus Round, you are presented with a themed pyramid. You are prompted to pick one of the Egypt-themed symbols. The symbols tell you which features you are allowed to use in the free spin round.
Choose, for example, an extra multiplier to use during the free spin; or an option that allows multiple free spins, up to 25 freebies. If Lady Luck is with you, you might get a multiplier, perhaps a 6x, that’s nearly 200 free spins. Wow! Count me in!
In a few locations, most noticeably Vegas, Pharaoh’s Fortune Slots can be seen residing in the inviting High Limit salons. The 3-reel games will outnumber them there, so expect to find more Five Times Play pokie games and other popular attractions like Triple Diamond to upstage the number of Pharaoh’s Fortune Slots. But they are growing in popularity every year. It’s an “arms” race, so to speak.
There’s a payline for almost every budget, starting as low as $0.10 to $2.00. But always be on the lookout for free spins options that let you try before you buy, which lets you play the game a bit before you have to spend your hard-earned cash. Don’t feel guilty, the house will eventually get its money back if you stay and play long enough.
Pharaoh’s Fortune Slots easily remain top of mind for the reason that it has many free spin options and Bonus Rounds. That is why it remains unparalleled among the many other pharaoh-themed slots games. Plus, don’t forget, it has “Walk Like an Egyptian”, that’s worth at least a few dollars.
