Pharoah’s Fortune Slot

Not all of IGT's slot machines are well known big money productions. Some manage to come in a little bit more 'under the radar' but are none-the-less still pretty brilliant games. One such title is Pharaoh's Fortune, an Egyptian themed slot machine that's always been a little in the shadow of the awesome Cleopatra and the sequel slot Cleopatra 2. This title is apparently very popular in the US land based casinos, where it's a staple of almost every gaming hall you'll ever enter. Well, in our opinion the whole of the American slot community can't be wrong, so let's see what the Pharaoh has to offer.

Pharaoh’s Fortune is one spectacular looking game; which in all fairness is probably better on the eye than Cleopatra. The reel art is intricate, well drawn and colourful; being set in an Egpytian temple background. Even the regular boxes at the bottom of the slot have been styled in a circular display, pusing the spin button towards you. This is a very well crafted game. The music draws on the 1980s Bangles classic Walk Like An Egyptian, which plays every-time you spin the reels. Stylistically there’s so much that’s just  terrific  right here.

The Main Game

The base game in Pharaoh’s Fortune pays over 10 pay-lines. This keeps the spin cost low, whilst the rewards on offer from the reels are quite high. You’ve got a wild symbol in the form of the Pharaoh’s Fortune logo.


Unlike many other IGT slots, this game has conventional scatters which simply pay a prize. The bonus game activation on the other hand happens when you stop in three or more of the golden Tutankhamen masks on any pay-line on the first three reels.

The Bonus Game Rounds

When you activate the Pharaoh’s Fortune bonus game you’ll find yourself in a darkened tomb, staring at bricks in a wall. Pick bricks to reveal extra multipliers and free spins, then it’s off to the special second set of reels when you hit the collect brick. In the bonus round you get double the number of pay-lines that are  in the base game, and every spin you take on the reels has to be a win. The music gets even better too as you’ll now hear the full version of Walk Like An Egyptian played throughout this bonus  instead of just snippets of the track when you push spin.

In Summary

Despite its deceptive low number of pay-lines, Pharaohs Fortune  is actually a high variance slot machine, which has the ability to pay out that one massive prize out of nowhere in the base game. The bonus always rewards players handsomely and its quite easy to ramp up your spins and multipliers in the preliminary brick pick round. On top of everything, this slot is very good looking, a lot of fun to play and the music isastounding. After a few sessions on its reels we more than understood why this is one of the most featured games in land based North American casinos.
