Though the star rating might confuse you, we should probably admit that we quite enjoyed this Pharao’s Riches slot on mobile.
So why does it only get two stars when games with not much better graphics and sounds get at least a playable 3? For example, Cleopatra Last of the Pharaohs by Novomatic?
Honestly? This Pharao’s Riches slot just come around 10 years too late.
And considering that Gameomat might actually have created this around a decade ago for land-based casinos, it shows.
This is basically an OK slot machine.
You get an Egyptian themed game, which isn’t any worse than the million of other Egyptian slots out there, over 30 paylines.
The highest paid symbol, the titular Pharaoh, is the highest paying symbol and comes stacked across the reels, where diamond wilds help create wins.
Then, every once in a while, 3 scatters will let you play 10 free spins where the wilds also come stacked, meaning you get a good chance at creating decent wins.
Which in and of itself is not always a bad thing. Play’n GO’s Prosperity Palace game has just got 10 paylines, scatters and free spins.
Which means that if you like old fashioned slots, this Pharao’s Riches slot machine can certainly give you what you are looking for – so go give it a try if that’s what you like.
But to be honest, for us anyway, there are so many modern slots than manage to pop out of the screen, from the Temple of Luxor by Genesis, to Elk Gamings’ Hidden, that this Pharao’s Riches game will just gets lost in our online casino world.

Wild: The Blue diamond is wild and replaces all other symbols on screen to create wins, except for the scatter.
It comes stacked during the free spins, whereas in slots like 7 Monkeys by Pragmatic, you get all symbols stacked at all times.
Stacked Pharaoh Symbol: the highest paying symbol on screen also comes stacked across all reels.
Scatters and Free Games: 3, 4 or 5 Pyramid scatters anywhere on screen will trigger 10 (most likely) 25 (rare) or 100 free spins (mythical).
During the free spins the diamond wild comes stacked across al the reels.
Gamble: After any win you can choose to gamble your winnings by playing one of two simple 50/50 games.
The first asks you to predict whether the card will either be a red suit, or a black suit.
The second asks you to click a button and see if you go up the ladder, or down the ladder.
Gives you the exact same result, but with a different setting.
Other than the fact that the sounds and graphic are a little generic, there is actually nothing technically wrong with this mobile Pharao's Riches slot.
You have 30 paylines, with one stacked symbol, wilds, scatters and free spins. All the element for a good slot are here.
We just find it hard to play when we know, in the back of our minds, that there's about a million other better Egyptian video slots to spin.
Even IGT had to spruce up their Cleopatra slot with a MegaJackpot, maybe Gameomat should pay attention to the changing times as well.
