Update 15/10/2015: You can now play Pyramid Quest for Immortality at Leo Vegas mobile casino ahead of its official release.
NetEnt have released the video for their new video slot Pyramid: Quest for Immortality... which will be available on mobile and online casinos on the 22nd of October. And it looks freaking crazy.
Look, we know it’s not always easy to keep up the level of excitement we use to have for new NetEnt video slots.
The last few releases have been… tepid at best.
Neon Staxx is ok, but hardly a joy to play, whilst the less we say about Sparks, the better.
That said, you can’t get them right all the time, and the upcoming Hooks Heroes coming on the 23rd of September looks fun enough that it could be the end of the bad streak.
But if we had to put our money on which game is going to be the next 5 star hit from NetEnt, our bet is actually with the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality slot.
Don’t believe us? Then you haven’t heard the same rumour we have: this game contains a 7.2 million in-game jackpot. Or, put another way, 36,000 times your bet.
So if you bet 1 a spin, you could walk away with $€£36,000. This is NOT a progressive jackpot slot, so that top win is insanely huge.
You got that right. This is going to be an incredibly volatile slot, but we still think it’s going to divide people.
To understand why, you are better off watching the video.
The biggest win you are seeing here, by the way, is about 734 times your bet. So NetEnt are keeping that big top win close to their chest. Even in the mobile slot youtube video the wins are not more.

If you managed to view the video, you might immediately recognise what the problem might be with Pyramid: Quest for Immortality.
If you can’t watch it because you’re reading this at work…. oh you rebel you.
Don’t worry, we’ll explain it.
Let’s start with some of the obvious points shall we?
So now you know the facts. Let’s have a look what that might mean for the gameplay of the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality slot machine.
First things first; the avalanche feature.
That’s something we always love to see, and have no problem with in any way.
It’s brilliant really, every time you win, those symbols explode, and you get another ‘mini’ go, as more symbols tumble down from above.
That’s right, no free spins.
But that’s because, by our books, they are going to have to give you a shit ton of little wins in order to make this quest for immortality exciting.
So that means avalanche wins, after avalanche wins, after more wins.
The reason we mention that they are going to have to give us lots of wins is because, without the free spins, the only thing keeping you spinning is the hope of catching those multipliers.
And whilst in Gonzo the multipliers increased by one after each win, here the multiplier increases by one only after 3 successive wins.
We don’t know if the multipliers will skip (say from 3x to 5x to 10x) – or whether it will go one by one, 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x, 10x.
If one by one (as we suspect), then you’d have to have to have 30 successive wins in a row to get to that 10x multiplier, and the potential 36,000 times your bet win.
That’s A LOT of wins in a row.
This quest is starting to look like a suicide mission.
Because Net Entertainment love to put a twist on the simplest of mobile phone video slots, so too does Pyramid: Quest for Immortality have a little feature that’s helping you along the way.
Basically, every time you get an avalanche win at the very top of reel 2, 3 and/or 4, a wild will generate. These will keep generating till no more wins occur in those spots.

That, if nothing else, gives us hope that you can generate enough wilds to keep those avalanche wins coming.
It will certainly give you value for money, as with a min/max bet of 0.10 to 200 a spin, one go could last… well… 30 spins. Perhaps more?
It’s starting to sound that way, isn’t it?
One thing we can guarantee for sure is that it will look beautiful, whether you decide to play Pyramid: Quest for Immortality on mobile or online.
In fact, it’s almost a little old fashioned for NetEnt, isn’t it? This could have been made side by side with Novomatic’s Book of Ra Deluxe and not look totally out of place.
It could easily be sitting on a Las Vegas casino floor, and you wouldn’t think it’s an online slot machine.
Immortality, when not locked in a magic potion, is usually achieved in one way: your name associated with a dazzling fame and glory of wins that will have generations of future slot players look upon you in awe.
This Pyramid: Quest for Immortality slot game promises that, if you can climb to the top of the pyramid and get that 10x multiplier.
We suspect that whilst all NetEnt casinos will add this game to their list, not all will give you the big betting options… some might even hide it so you don’t get your hands on that 7.2 million jackpot.
