With 40 paylines, wilds and scatters, this Pharaoh’s Dream slot game will have you wonder whether you’ve fallen into a strange fever dream or a wonderful nirvana.
You have to love a casino game that tries to be a little bit different from the normal – and whilst this is an Ancient Egypt slot game, with pyramids, scarabs, and Ankh symbols, it’s set in a purple post-apocalyptic world that has been taken over by an alien vortex. Maybe?
It’s certainly a little bit different from the normal slot themes, but familiar enough that you recognise the pyramids as the wild symbol and the Sphynx as the scatter. In short, this is a typical Scientific Game slot with a good paytable, a solid theme, and easy to understand features.
The base game is what you would expect.
Pharaoh’s Dream has 5 reels and 4 rows with 40 paylines. The base game only has wilds and scatters to keep you company, making this a little slow at times.
The problem, of course, is that though the paytable is generous for a 40 payline game, because there no stacked symbols or that many wilds, you need quite a few wins on multiple paylines to really make this work for you.
Thank-fully the Pharaoh’s Dream slot knows this but just asks you to wait until you get to the bonus rounds.
We love a good free spin round, and Pharaoh’s Dream has really thought about what makes bonuses exciting.
You get a super stacked wild symbol that can cover the whole reel. It can, but it doesn’t always, land to cover the whole reel. This is important because the wilds come easily and quickly. You usually get 2 or 3 on any spin.
But the wonderful thing here is that if the wild does land to cover the whole reel, it stays sticky for whatever is left of the 10 free spins you started with.
It would have been nice if we could have re-triggered the free spins, like in the Friends slot game, but it’s still fun to take a few spins on this real money slot with a minimum bet of 0.40 a spin.

Wild: The Pyramids is the wild symbol and will substitute for any other symbol except the scatter symbol. It has to appear in an active payline.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3 Scatter symbols, the Sphinx, on reels 1, 3 and 5 start the free spin bonus feature. You'll get 10 free spins with pyramid-stacked wild symbols to appear on all reels except 1. They come stacked 4 symbols high, and if they land to cover the whole reel, they will remain on screen for the duration of the spins.
We had a wonderful time playing on this Pharaoh's Dream slot on mobile. It's a simple game that will give you ancient Egypt with an alien twist, wilds, scatters and free spins.
Will you win enough to become an actual Pharaoh? No. Probably not. But the free spins bonus round gives you hope for more thanks to those stacked wilds and (hopefully) sticky wilds.
We wish the sticky wilds came a little sooner or more of them, but the hope is there, and sometimes that's enough to have fun.
We doubt you'll play on this WMS slot for ages, but with a good paytable and 40 solid paylines, this sticks comfortably alongside other gems of WMS slots like Amazon Queen slot or the Dr Jekyll Goes Wild slot machine.
