It’s been a big year for NetEnt but this software powerhouse shows no sign of slowing down, with one of the biggest releases of 2015 being unveiled this week. Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is bound to be an instant hit with online pokies players, joining a list of recent NetEnt releases that has included such impressive titles as Hooks Heroes, Neon Staxx, Spinata Grande, Steam Tower and Tornado Farm Escape.
Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is a five reel pokies game with 720 ways to win. The rows are separated into a unique pyramid shaped design, with three rows on the first and fifth reels, four rows on the second and fourth reels and five rows on the third reel. Symbols are made up of gleaming relics from Ancient Egypt, with all kinds of exquisite artefacts hiding within the tomb including scarab beetles, bejewelled ankhs and solid gold snakes and eagles.
Pyramid: Quest for Immortality uses a captivating avalanche feature, which sees the reels falling into place rather than spinning to a stop. Every time a winning combination is created, winning symbols explode in order to make room for new symbols to drop down into place, which provides a deeply satisfying feel to the gameplay.
When symbols are exploding, this also brings the chance to activate the Avalanche Multiplier, where three successive avalanches will result in 1X your active bet, all the way up to a potential 10X. This attractive pokies game also offers wild symbols and NetEnt’s own re-spins feature, which awards re-spins if a win is made up from three symbols or more across any pay line.
Ancient Egypt is not unchartered waters for software developers, we’ve seen it many times before in popular titles like Mega Moolah Isis, Treasure Nile, Aztec Idols, The Mummy, Relic Raiders and Egyptian Heroes just to name a few, but Pyramid: Quest for Immortality is a clear standout. The charming symbols mixed with the avalanche feature and NetEnt’s sophisticated flair for style has resulted in a game that is sure to become a go-to for many online players.
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, commented that, “With Pyramid: Quest for Immortality, NetEnt will immerse players in the exotic world of Ancient Egypt. With so many exciting ways to win, including NetEnt’s popular Avalanche feature, winners could soon be living like pharaohs.”
