OK, own up anyone who hasn't come across the Pharaohs Fortune slot 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 but before I sign off, just a note to say that there are now two different
online versions of Pharaoh's Fortune - a 10 payline version akin to that you find in UK land casinos
and a 15 payline version similar to the Game King versions commonly found in the US. The version
above is the 15 line version which is better IMO: if you want to try the 10-line version then head on over to
Paddy Power Games although they may follow the crowd
and change to the 15-line Pharaoh's Fortune at some point.
The Pharaoh's Fortune slot is one of lots of land-based slots that
have now made the transition to online casinos. Classics like the superb
Book Of Ra slot and Lucky Lady's Charm
at a few places, as are games like Rainbow Riches and plenty
more IGT slots similar to Pharaoh's Fortune. You'll find many of them to play online here at GFM of course!
