In keeping with its rapid slot production schedule, Pragmatic Play has launched its latest title, Fortune of Giza, which the multi-product content provider believes “will prove to be incredibly popular,” with its sticky wild multipliers in free spins boosting wins and excitement.
Playable on all devices, the high volatility 5-reel, 3-row video slot has 20 paylines and a default RTP of 96.51 percent and with the exception of the Egyptian theme is identical to the provider’s 2019 hit The Dog House, including the 6,750x max win.
Paytable & Symbols:
Here, a golden framed game grid is set amid a background depicting Egypt’s most visited tourist attraction, the Great Pyramids of Giza, and landing 3 to 5 of the same symbols on adjacent reels starting from the far left reel constitutes a winning combination.
Of the ten regular symbols, 10, J, Q, K and A card icons comprise the lower pays and are worth between 1.25 and 2.5x the bet for landing five-of-a-kind, while Pharaohs and Egyptian Gods are the higher pays and worth 5 to 37.5x the bet the same way.
Helping create wins are Wilds which appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and substitutes for all symbols except for the Bonus Scatter symbol.
Boosting the win potential, wilds land with a multiplier of x2 or x3, increasing any winning line they appear on. If multiple wilds are included in the win, the multiplier values get added to the others.
Scatters work well for you here too, as landing three or more of them during base gameplay will unlock the free spins round. Before the bonus round starts, a 3×3 grid is triggered and reveals numbers between 1 and 3, and each of them is added together presenting the number of free spins awarded, which ranges from 9 to 27.
Boosting the excitement of the free spins, any wilds that land are sticky, remaining in place for the duration of the bonus round! And just like in the base game, wild only land on reels 2, 3 and 4 and have x2 or x3 multipliers.
In a statement via company news, Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, commented on the new release, noting that Wild multiplier mechanics “always prove to be a hit for our players,” with them boosting wins and excitement during the bonus round.”
Crescendo of Potential:
“Fortune of Giza™ further builds upon this concept with wild multipliers being sticky throughout the bonus round, creating a crescendo of potential for the duration of free spins that will prove to be incredibly popular.”
The latest launch enhances the provider’s rapidly-growing slots portfolio and follows recently released hits such as Zombie Carnival, as well as Wild West Gold Megaways, which incorporates the popular game engine on lease from Australian developer Big Time Gaming (BTG), and Cleocatra. Each of these games can be found in Pragmatic Play’s collection of more than 200 diverse titles.
Fans can expect the provider to drop its next hit, Queen of Gods, on June 16th.
The latest release follows deals with Jokerbet.es, the online interest of Spain-based gaming company Grupo Veramatic and crypto-friendly online casino, Roobet, which resulted in the launch of a five-table bespoke Live Dealer studio.
