Slot Machine Review: Pharaoh Fortune

Pharaoh Fortune slot

Ancient Egypt, favourite theme of game editors

Game publishers love ancient Egypt. That’s why they often launch video or classic slot machines in the colour of the desert and pharaonic treasures. It is true that this theme is synonymous with riches and mountains of gold. The pharaohs were famous for their love of gold. Pharaoh Tutankhamun wore a mask of solid gold and precious stones in his sarcophagus. This mask weighed no less than 10 kilos of gold…

Among the slot machines inspired by ancient Egypt and the Pharaohs, we can notably mention River of Riches by Microgaming™, Pharaohs Fortune™ by IGT, Book of Ra™ by Novomatic, Egyptian Heroes™ by NetEnt or Cleopatra’s Gold™ by Realtime Gaming. Now it is Gamescale that is launching a video slot entitled Pharaoh’s Fortune™. This machine holds some pretty interesting treasures….

Pharaoh prizes to be won

Although Gamescale is not the most popular developer, it is making a name for itself. Their machines offer simple operation reminiscent of land-based casino machines. With the Pharaoh Fortune slot machine, publisher Gamescale is launching a dream-style machine that offers interesting prizes. Indeed, Pharaoh Fortune offers 5 reels and 5 paylines. It is possible to bet from $0.01 to $1.25 per spin.

These betting limits are significantly lower than those offered by NetEnt or NextGen machines, but Gamescale wants to be a popular publisher that caters primarily to neophyte and occasional players on a limited budget. Here you have the possibility to select the number of lines you want to bet on. In addition, you can select the auto-play option to spin the machine automatically. This is a useful option for players who play multiple machines at the same time. At the payout level, the machine offers 5 symbols with prizes. Five pyramid symbols will give you 2,000 times your bet, with a maximum win of $2,500 for a maximum bet of $1.25 per spin. If you line up five pharaoh’s eye symbols, you’ll receive 400 times your bet, with a maximum win of $500. The other symbols that pay are the lion, scarab, and the cross and crossbones.


  • A well-crafted popular theme.
  • Dreamy design.
  • A fun, anachronistic soundtrack.

The Worst

  • Absence of Scatter and Wild…
  • Dreamy video animation.

Although Gamescale doesn’t yet rival the likes of Betsoft or Yggdrasil in terms of video creation, the Pharaoh Fortune slot is very well made. It is possible to activate the machine with a single click just like in a land-based casino. Each winning hit unleashes a shower of diamonds that invades your screen. In addition, the soundtrack of the machine is simply captivating and immerses you in the universe of the Middle East. The graphics of the machine and the symbols on the reels are equally dreamy. For the moment, this brings it close to the Rival or RTG publishers…

In short, if you like slot machines inspired by ancient Egypt and mountains of gold and diamonds, Gamescale’s Pharaoh Fortune slot machine will offer you a very pleasant gaming experience. Good game and good luck!
