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!
