Pharaohs Secrets Slot

The Pharaohs Secrets slot game from Playtech (not to be confused with IGT's Pharaohs Fortune by the way) is a slot game I overlooked for ages but when I finally went to play it, I found a pretty decent game. It's actually really similar to a land-based game I once played in a casino in Budapest whose name I can't remember but gameplay and symbology were near identical.

The two main talking points of Pharaohs Secrets are the fact it has the (optionally triggered) expanding wild symbols on reels 2-4 plus a free spins bonus. To get the expanding wilds you have to buy into the feature with a sidebet by activating the "ExtraWin" button. This effectively adds 50% to your bet but to be honest, without it you aren't really going to win an awful lot.

The free spins are triggered by getting 3 or more Pyramid scatters anywhere in view (more than a bit reminiscent of Cleopatra!) and you'll generally get anywhere between 15 and 27 free spins with a 2x multiplier and the expanding wilds (if you activated them!). I've found retriggers are fairly common too. The Pharaohs Secrets slot relies on you getting the bonus feature to win anything substantial although you can get a small modest profit during normal game play if you can line up the expanding wilds on reels 2-4.

It's a good low-rolling slot game, in a totally different vein to high roller slots like other Playtech slots such as Rome And Glory or Iron Man 2 but one that if you have a small bankroll will normally provide some good entertainment.


You can play Pharaohs Secrets slots at the following safe casinos:

Paddy Power

Paddy Power (Playtech) - A really good Playtech casino with no reverse pending to hamper the fast cashout times. The slots choice is excellent with all the Marvel slots and more plus customer service is very good too.


Betfred (Playtech) - A good Playtech casino with an improving games section too. Cashout times are above average and customer support responsive although competition on Playtech software is now quite intense.


Tote (Playtech) - A favourite of mine for some years with lightening cashouts and all the Playtech games including the Marvel slots, although Tote has now been purchased by Betfred which may change things.
