Pyramid Pays slot REVIEW
Pyramid Pays ReviewWe have been to ancient Egypt so many times over the years that it’s starting to feel like home. Pyramid Pays offers nothing special in the audiovisual department, except perhaps for the neat Eye of Horus makeup you’ll see on the x2 Cleopatra multiplier wild. The Ultra Bet option is extremely welcome in this release, as it allows you to burn through 50 base game spins with the added benefit of a total win multiplier boost up to x1,000.
This is a genius concept actually. It not only shortens the time between bonus round triggers (these are saved), but it also makes the base game grind far more exciting. A lot of slots could benefit from something similar, and this feature alone makes it worthwhile to give this volatile iSoftBet release a spin or two (not to say 50). The bonus round is not all that exciting unless you manage to retrigger the feature many times, and quadruple the random prizes.

Pyramid Pays Slot Features
The Cleopatra wild steps in for all regular pay symbols, and it lands on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. This symbol will not only help you form winning combinations, but it also boosts your winnings by x2 whenever it’s part of a win.
You trigger the Bonus Round when you land 3 Pyramid scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5, and this awards 15 free spins. The bonus round plays out pretty much the same as the base game, with one important difference. Landing 3 scatters gives you +1 extra spin, but it also triggers the Pyramids Pay feature.
The camera moves up to a pyramid with 9 multiplier segments from x2 to x100, and one of those multipliers are randomly selected. You thus win a prize equal to that multiplier boosting your total stake, and the value you won is disabled for the next trigger. You can win up to 9 Pyramid multiplier prizes in one bonus round sequence. Trigger the bonus round with a Booster scatter on reel 5, and all Pyramid prizes are doubled for that round.
Pyramid Pays Slot - Ultra Bet
Finally, you have the Ultra Bet option. You’ll pay 50x your stake for 50 Ultra Bet spins, and some symbols land with star icons attached. These are collected in the Multiplier meter on the right-hand side, and you need 5 stars to get to the first x5 multiplier. The multipliers increase up to x1,000 at the most, and your total winnings from the feature will be subject to the multiplier you achieve.
The 200 Spins Pyramid Pays Slot Experience
Our 5 and a half minutes highlights video starts out with “big win” that takes a good while to sum up. Then we purchase the Ultra Bet feature at 1:16, and we manage to trigger the bonus round from within it. The bonus round is saved for after the Ultra Bet has played out, and it starts at 2:45 into the video. Check it all out for yourself via the play button below.
iSoftBet should perhaps have considered another theme for this release, as it’s bound to drown in the “noise” of hundreds of similar titles that’s already out there, with new installments coming all the time. The base game is very uneventful to say the least, so it’s probably better to commit to 50 spins via the Ultra Bet option. We really like this concept actually, and it’s something many slots would benefit from.
You’ll burn through 50 spins really fast this way, and collecting stars to boost your total winnings with up to x1,000 is far better than grinding along in the featureless base game. It also means that the bonus round is triggered faster, although the whole pyramid prize thing is not all that exciting unless you manage to double the prizes several times. Overall, a decent shelf-filler release that will probably be forgotten very soon.
