Dreams and the interpretation of dreams played an important part in Egyptian culture and way of life. Especially those in power relied heavily on its directive qualities, both for the present as well as for purposes of predicting of the future. The story of Joseph’s interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream is arguably the most famous one told, emphasizing the significance of accurate interpreters in Ancient Egyptian society.
Pharaoh’s Dream is based on the elements of Egyptian culture and the mystical elements associated with the realm of the unknown. The online video slot features 5 reels and 50 paylines – 10 more than its land based version.
Pharaoh’s Dream Symbols
Symbols appearing on the 5 reels include the Eye of Horus, the Sacred Scarab and, perhaps the most poignant of all symbols associated with Egyptian culture, the Ankh (also known as the Key of the Nile and the Symbol of Life). Standard playing cards also feature as symbols, ranging from the number 9 card to the Ace card. Themed symbols represent higher paying symbol values, and the playing cards that of a lower value.
Pharaoh’s Dream Wild Symbol
The Wild symbol is represented by the Pyramid, another image synonymous almost exclusively to Egyptian ethos. The Pyramid is a substitute for all standard symbols, with the exception of the scatter symbol. The Pyramid is also a paying symbol, and landing a combination of 5 in a row on any one active payline holds a Jackpot reward of 5 000 credits.
Pharaoh’s Dream Scatter Symbol
The Sphinx is the scatter symbol in Pharaoh’s Dream, and appears selectively on reels 1, 3 and 5. The Bonus Free Spins Round is activated by landing the scatter symbol on all three reels.
Pharaoh’s Dream Bonus Free Spins Round
The award for landing a combination of 3 scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, is 10 free spins and a 4X multiplier. For the duration of the free spins round, stacked wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. These stacked wilds will remain in place on the reels until such time as the free spins round is over.
A nice animative touch is the brilliant purple light that radiates from the Pyramid symbols during the free spins round.
The game interface is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. Functions and information is displayed in a sensible manner.
Flexible Betting Options
Betting options are flexible, and the minimum bet starts at 0.01 credits, increasing to a maximum bet per payline of 10 credits.
