Platinum Pyramid is a Cryptologic online slot game with two popular themes mixed into one. The game is unmistakably Egyptian while platinum brings in the second theme where certain symbols or images represent this precious metal.
Getting Started with Platinum Pyramid
There are five reels and three rows set against a starry sky with up to twenty selectable pay lines. Staking all pay lines means the Platinum Pyramid jackpot prize is 7 000x the bet. Each pay line has a wide value range with the coin sizes starting from 0.01 and going up to 5.00.
As in many Windows Phone casino slots, the value of the coins and the number of the pay lines can be set by using the buttons below the reels. Both the lines and bet buttons come with increase and decrease options but an alternative option to selecting pay lines is by clicking on the corresponding colour or number that runs alongside the reels. A bet max button will select all pay lines automatically.
Once all bet have been staked the spin button may be clicked on to begin. There is however an auto play option where the reels can be set to spin multiple times without interruption. The same stake will be played for each any every spin until the feature is stopped and the stake is adjusted. Speed of game play is adjustable going from normal speed to fast and then very fast.
The Platinum Pyramid Slot Reel Symbols
The themed symbols on the Platinum Pyramid reels include a priestess; the Platinum Pyramid; a gold lotus flower; an ankh; the Eye of Horus and a vase. These are all backed with a platinum plate. The standard playing card symbols nine; ten; jack; queen; king and ace are present on the reels and appear to be made from platinum.
The highest valued symbol is the priestess who pays out the 7 000 coin jackpot prize when five appear on an active pay line. The next highest symbol is the gold lotus flower which pays out 3 000 coins for five on an active pay line and the Eye of Horus is third with a pay out of 1 000 coins for five on an active pay line.
The priestess is also the Platinum Pyramid wild symbol which assists in forming winning combinations by acting as a replacement for regular symbols on an active pay line. All winning combinations are paid according to the pay table and are multiplied by the pay line bet.
Platinum Pyramid Free Spins Bonus Feature
The Platinum Pyramid itself is the scatter symbol. Landing two, three, four or five of the scatters pays out 1x, 5x, 20x or 150x the total stake respectively. Landing three, four or five of the scatter symbols also means entry into the Platinum Pyramid free spins bonus feature with 5, 10 or 15 free spins being awarded respectively.
Any free spin win is trebled as they are awarded with a 3x multiplier and another three scatters will re-trigger the feature. All of the free spins are played with the same stake that triggered the feature and all of the wins that occur are added to the scatter win.
