The Pyramyth slot is played using 5 reels, 3 lines and 15 fixed paylines. Get 3, 4 or 5 of the same symbols and / or wild cards left to right on 1 of these 15 paylines, starting on reel 1 and you will get a winning combination.
As for the stakes, you can expect the same as all other Thunderkick slots. It is available to play from 10 cents to 100 euros per spin.
The Pyramyth RTP is 96.17%, slightly better than the average. I found the volatility here to be very high. The maximum you can win from a single spin is 10,000 x your total stake.
Mix a little science fiction with the Egyptian myth and you will have an idea of the design in the Pyramyth. Egyptian-Futurist imagery works great. With blue skies and an Egyptian cityscape in the background, the reels are guarded by a pair of huge bird-deity statues. The pictures here are superbly done. As usual for a version of Thunderkick, this is a feast for the senses.
On the gold-edged reels you’ll find 12 different symbols, including A to 9 royals and more rewarding Egyptian themed images. They include hound, eagle and crocodile style hieroglyphics heads. The most rewarding symbol is the high priestess who pays 10, 20 or 75 times the total bet if you get 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The beetle is the Wild of the game. This substitutes for all other symbols (apart from the scatter bonus) when it is part of a winning combination. It can also provide some very useful multiplier boosts, as you’ll find out below. Get 5 wild cards on a payline for a 75 x bet prize. The scorching sun is the bonus symbol. Landing 3 or more of these on the same lap activates the feature round.
Pyramyth has been fully optimized to play on all devices, including mobiles and tablets, as well as desktop and laptop computers.
The Pyramyth slot design is superb. This is much more than the proverbial “pretty face”. With 4 bonus features, there is decent gameplay on offer also courtesy of wild multipliers, free spins with sticky respins and roaming wilds.
Whenever you hit a winning combination that includes a wildcard, the winnings receive an increase in the multiplier when the Wild Multiplier feature is activated. The more wild cards there are in the winner, the better the multiplier increase. It can reach up to 32x:
1 wild card in a 2x multiplier win
2 wild cards in a 4x multiplier win
3 wild cards in an 8x multiplier win
4 wild cards in a 16x multiplier win
5 wild cards in a 32x multiplier win
The main extra in Pyramyth is the Bonus Game feature. It is activated in the usual way by getting 3 or more bonus symbols in the same spin. This can reward you with up to 20 free spins initially:
3 bonus symbols 10 free spins
4 bonus symbols 15 free spins
5 bonus symbols 20 free spins
Here, too, retriggers are possible. Obtaining 3 Bonus symbols adds another 5 free spins to the total. This means up to 25 free spins in total.
Whenever you create a winning combination during the free spins, you will activate the Sticky Respin feature. Those success symbols are locked in place and the other positions spin again. If a new matching symbol or wildcard lands on that respin, they are also withheld and another respin follows.
These respins continue until there is one in which you improve your winning position or fill the entire game grid with the same corresponding symbol or wild card.
During the free spins, the wild symbol has a different power. Known as the Roaming Wilds feature, every savage that lands here turns into a sticky roaming wild. The wild card moves to a new position on the reels with each free spin. It is possible to land up to 5 wild roaming during the feature.
