OK own up anyone who hasn't come across the Pharaohs Fortune slot machine in a land-based
casino this side of Timbuktu. No-one, right? This is one of IGT's most prolific and
popular slot machines ever, even giving IGT's very own
Cleopatra slot machine
a run for it's money. The USP of Pharaohs is the free spins bonus which is pretty unique.
IGT have a penchant for making the feature triggers appear on specific reels - games like
the Coyote Moon slot and Wolf Run
will be familiar in this regard - and Pharaohs Fortune follows down the same path.
The difference with this game though is that the triggering green Pharaoh symbols have to also
be on a payline and appear on reels 1, 2 and 3. It happens a little more regularly than
you'd expect to be fair and when they drop, you get to remove stones from a tomb, each
revealing either an extra free spin or a +1 multiplers. You can
get up to about 27 spins at 6x if you are lucky - with retriggers a possibility. That's
pretty much the best free spins bonus round of all the GFM fruit machines.
There's probably little need for me to explain
Pharaohs Fortune to
most of you I guess so I'll stop there. Suffice to say the online version is pretty
faithful to the original land-based game with one unique twist: you get 10 paylines
during the normal spins but when you trigger the free spins, you get 20 paylines! That
adds up to a much better expected payout percentage than you'll get from the land-based
Pharaoh's Fortune slot machine.
The Pharaohs Fortune slot is the latest in an ever-growing list of land-based slots that
are making the transition to online casinos. Classics like the superb
Book Of Ra slot are already to be found at a few places, as
are games like Rainbow Riches and plenty
more IGT slots like Pharaohs Fortune. You'll find many of them to play online here at GFM of course!
