The desire for immortality has been a basis for a lot of art pieces, books, stories and in recent times for games as well. Ancient Egypt is considered to hide great secrets that probably are the solution for many mysteries, immortality is one of them. In October of 2015 NetEnt introduced this marvelous video slot which features the Quest for Immortality in the Egyptian Pyramids. The theme may not be original, but it’s attractive. In combination with the unique layout and the one of a kind Avalanche Feature it certainly deserves some attention. Nevertheless, NetEnt maybe releases a high number of slots on a regular basis, but they never tradeoff quality. Pyramid: Quest for Immortality can be considered as an average slot by NetEnt, but average only because NetEnt can always do better.

Pyramid: Quest for Immortality has a vertically symmetrical grid showing 5 columns of symbols and 5 rows. However, instead of the expected 25 symbols Pyramid shows only 19 because the outer columns show 3 symbols at a time whereas the middle 5. It offers 720 ways to win in base game. The coin can have a value between 0.01 and 2.00. Players can place up to 10 of these coins per payline. If you do the math the minimum bet is 0.10 and can go as up as 200. It’s enough for beginners to get a good understanding of the game and high rollers can kick it up a notch with the max bet button.
By far the most distinctive feature any player will find extraordinary is the Avalanche Feature. Instead of having spinning reels, Pyramid: Quest for Immortality has blocks that fall one over another. If some of the symbols are part of a winning line they explode, the upper symbols go down and new symbols are created on top. The Wild Symbol is represented with the Ankh of Life. It substitutes for any symbol to form the highest winning line. Whenever a symbol that’s on top of columns 2, 3 or 4 is part of a winning line once it explodes it will be replaced with a Wild Symbol. Pyramid also features a multiplier that increases with every 3 consecutive wins and can go up to x10.
With no doubts Pyramid: Quest for Immortality will attract its own loyal player base. It will also become a fan favorite for a big player pool. The out of the ordinary layout make the game to stand out from the competition. NetEnt already proved to be a risk taker. Providing the players with weird looking slots with their recognizable features only increased the number of fans. By all means Pyramid deserves a shot.
