At first you might think this would be like any other 15 payline IGT slot. And you’ll be right with Pharaohs Fortune mobile slot, but that’s no bad thing.
The reason this game may look or sound familiar is that you may have seen it whilst walking into a casino in Europe or Vegas.
They are a dime a dozen and have been around for years.
So what you shouldn’t expect from Pharaohs Fortune slot machine is anything particularly novel or new. Or even that beautiful. In terms of graphics it resembles the old Cleopatra slot game than the far more visually impressive Crown of Egypt slot.
And in more ways than one. The simple Egypt slot theme for one. The return to player rate for another. Yet it’s a slightly different beast.
Here’s the biggest selling point.
When you get three Pharaoh’s faces on a payline, you’ll trigger a measly 3 free spins with a 1x multiplier. But then you’ll get a pick me bonus game, where you’ll collect extra free spins and multipliers.
And here the Pharaohs Fortune video slot comes alive. You get the catchy ‘walk like an Egyptian’ playing in the background as you play your spins and multipliers on 20 paylines rather than 15. It gives you more wins and a thrill of excitement only IGT slot games can bring.
You can re-trigger the free spins, which has happened to us to know it’s very worthwhile, but as you’ll soon find out, none of it is an easy feat.
But best thing yet, when you do trigger it you are guaranteed to win cash. If one of the spins doesn’t pay anything, it will automatically pay 3x your bet. That’s called the ‘guaranteed win’ and the most popular feature of this mobile phone slot.
But other than the free spins, there’s nothing much more happening in this game. Because it’s very much been stripped back to the basics.
That said there are plenty of wins available even in the base game, which is what makes most IGT games so compelling.
If you like slots like Aliens, then chances are the Pharaohs Fortune slot game will lack razzle. It won’t move fast enough or have enough happening on the reels to occupy a busy mind.
But if you prefer your mobile phone slots with more gold and some thrilling free spins, then this is perfect for you.

Wild Symbol: The pyramid is the wild symbol, replacing all other symbols except the scatter and the free spin bonus symbol. It also has the highest paid value amount on a 5 symbol win.
Scatters: The scarab is the scatter symbol and doesn't trigger a thing. Just pays whenever two or more show up on screen.
Free Spin Bonus Round: You'll need three Pharaoh heads on an active payline to trigger 3 free spins with a 1x multiplier.
But before these start at such a measly amount, you'll get a screen of tomb stones, which you'll pick extra free spins and extra multipliers until you find a 'begin bonus' stone or hit the maximum of 26 free spins with a 6x multiplier.
But as we mentioned before, if you don't win anything on a free spin round, you'll get a guaranteed 3x your bet, which is always greatly appreciate, though hardly enough to break the bank.
That 6x multiplier, if you can get it, can be though.
During the free spins you'll also get to play on 20 paylines rather than the base game which you have only 15 paylines.
You can re-trigger the free spins by getting 3 symbols again, which will simply give you the same amount of free spins that were originally triggered.
Pharaohs Fortune mobile slot is a picture perfect copy of the online and land-base machine. So much so, that fans will be able to enjoy this Android slot / iOS slot and easily think they are on the casino floor.
It's not a thrill a minute for the new mobile and tablet generation, who like games more than your old fashioned slot machine. You should remove a star if you sit in that world.
However, it does have a thrilling free spins bonus and a great music track, which brings the game together into a great, if ancient, adventure.
