Fortune of Giza (Pragmatic Play)

Fortune of Giza (Pragmatic Play)Pragmatic Play seems to love the Ancient Egypt theme, and the developer has a couple of slots that borrow from this genre.

The latest is Fortune of Giza, an Ancient Egypt inspired theme, that offers decent rewards, and excellent features.

Here are more details about this slot:

Game Set-Up

The slot uses the common 5x3 reels setup, and on it are 20 pay lines.  When we look at the features, there are a couple of good ones that include a mix of wilds, scatters, multipliers, plus free spins with sticky wilds.

Betting and Prizes

The starting price for a real money bet is $0.20 which is a good level that accommodates all types of gamers. I also noticed that I could place bets of as much as $100 per spin.

6,750x the stake is the highest that you can expect here, and I think this figure is on the lower side considering the high volatility that is in Fortune of Giza.

What I love most is the high RTP setting of 96.48% that makes the slot a worthy idea to consider.

Fortune of Giza Slot Features

Fortune of Giza offers a couple of features among the usual wild. It is one of my favourite features since I can achieve a lot with its help.

I could use it whenever it landed on the middle three reels (i.e., 2-4). Every reel wild has a certain random multiplier that serves as its wilds (can be at 2x or 3x).

It is possible to add up multipliers from different wilds, but only after you get 2+ to contribute to that very same win. Here, they serve as substitutes for the regular symbols only where they help form combos.

Another feature that I find quite interesting is the bonus symbol. It comes in the same marking and you will notice a Full Moon appearing from behind a pyramid. This symbol will only appear once on each reel (only on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th).

Having all the bonus icons present will not only trigger the free spins but will also pay up to 5x the stake.

Unlike in what I have seen on other slots, with Fortune of Giza, the exact number of free spins will be determined by a small feature, whereby, 3x3 reels spin to reveal 9 numbers.

These will then be added and reveal the number of available rounds. Sadly, it’s not possible to retrigger the free spins since the bonus symbols are not accessible on the reels.

Theme & Design

The Ancient Egypt theme is one of the most common themes in modern slot machines. Pragmatic Play seems to really love this genre, and they had earlier released a similar slot titled Rise of Giza.

The major attraction is in the pyramids that appear in the background, alongside the Sphinx.

For the symbols, Fortune of Giza has Full Moon Pyramids that serve as scatters, a Wild, some images of Anubis, Pharaoh, Horus, Ankh, Bastet, Bracelet, and several Royals (10-A).


Although the top prizes that Pragmatic Play has offered in Fortune of Giza aren’t all that exciting, particularly for an extremely volatile slot machine, I’m of the view that the special features inside have the potential to trigger an exciting gaming action.

It’s a good slot, but one that would be more suitable for experienced gamers.
