Pyramid King Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play has already released a long list of games so far this year, with some more successful than others. More recently the studio has been using their Megaways license on some exciting titles. Including ‘Great Rhino Megaways‘ and ‘Starz Megaways‘, which is the most recent game I reviewed. Grea Rhino Megaways is high variance with a max win of 20,000x, 4 different free spins options and unlimited multipliers. Starz Megaways is also high variance but with a lower max win of 10,000x and free spins feature with expanding sticky wilds. Next from the studio is something more familiar to us, titled ‘Pyramid King‘ set to release June 25th across all sites.

Pyramid King has an ancient Egyptian theme, which is a popular choice from the studio. The slot background shows a beautiful landscape set in the desert, with pyramids, rivers and trees in the distance for the scenery. The visuals within this game are eye-catching, with amazing detail and show off the ancient Egyptian theme well. Visuals in the background are a different art style compared to the actual reel set.

Pyramid King has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 25 set pay lines. This game is low variance due to the set RTP of 96.5% and max win capped at 1,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £125.

Pyramid King Slot Review Paytable & Symbols

There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K and A. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by ankhs, snakes, green rings and Anubis. In addition to these regular symbols is a Tutankhamen wild, scroll bonus scatter and money symbol. The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the bonus scatter and money symbol. The bonus scatter only appears on reels 1,3 and 5. The money symbol is present on all reels and on each spin, these symbols take a random coin value based on your bet, or jackpot values minor and major.

Pyramid King Slot Review Features

There are two features within this game, the first is ‘Money Respin Feature‘, triggered when 6 or more money symbols land during one spin. Normal symbols fade away and only money symbols which triggered this feature remain. Normal reels are then replaced with special reels only containing money symbols and blank spaces. You will be awarded 3 respins, all money symbols that land will remain in place until the end of the feature, respins reset to 3 spins every time a new symbol lands. This feature continues until wither all spaces are filled or 3 consecutive spins occur with no additional symbols landing. All values of money symbols are collected and if all positions are filled you are awarded the Grand jackpot.

The second feature is the ‘Free Spins‘ feature, triggered by landing 3 scatters during one spin. This will award 10 free spins before spins occur a special expanding symbol is randomly selected. Special symbols will expand if 3 or more land anywhere on the reel set during one spin. Money symbols are present and landing 6 will trigger the ‘Money Respin Feature‘. Landing 3 or more scatters during spins will award an additional 10 free spins with no limit on retriggers.


Overall, I think this game could have been improved heavily within statistics and features. The volatility is low with a max win capped at 1,000x and features are nothing innovative which is unfortunate. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
