Rise of Giza: PowerNudge Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Rise of Giza: PowerNudge Slot (Pragmatic Play)Rise of Giza: PowerNudge is the latest from Pragmatic Play and from the look of things, it’s a very impressive slot machine, especially for players looking for a decent real money game.

I fell in love with its graphics, and after trying it out for real money, below is my unbiased review:

Game Set-Up

Rise of Giza: PowerNudge relies on the popular 5x3 reels design with just 10 paylines. For the features, you get to work with things like free spins, increasing multiplier, stacked symbols, and the Power Nudge.

Betting and Prizes

I’m happy with the betting range that targets all levels of players. The smallest amount that I could put per spin is $0.10, while the maximum is $50 per spin.

If you are looking for a slot game with massive potential, then this is the game to go for. Rise of Giza: PowerNudge has a top jackpot of up to $200,000 (4,000xs the stake).

The RTP is very fair, and although the developer allows up to 96.49%, there are other options that you can choose from (95.53% and 94.47%).

Rise of Giza: PowerNudge Features

Rise of Giza: PowerNudge offers several features, and one of them is the PowerNudge. To activate this feature, I was required to form some winning combinations.

This leads to a payout, after which the involved reels will move down by one position. This works just like the common cascading reels, and the feature will only stop when there is no win.

Also, you receive a payment when you land 3+ matching symbols on the adjacent reels. This is something that I was able to do without much struggle, and I enjoyed it.

In case scatter symbols (Scarabs) show up next to regular icons (overlays), then you can accumulate them after you are done with all the PowerNudges. Having at least 3 of such in a single spin activated my free spins.

With the 3 scatters, I received 8 free spins, and the best part is that each one after added 2 extra spins to the overall. An additional batch of the scatters will retrigger the free spins.

While in the free spins mode, I enjoyed the increasing multiplier, and this feature goes up by 1x after every free spin or nudge.

Theme & Design

The beautiful graphics caught my eye, and so did the design. Pragmatic Play is known for excellent graphics, and they did not disappoint.

However, what I find unusual is the Steampunk kind of influence in the design of this slot that borrows from the Ancient Egypt theme.

Symbols include the usual things common in slots with this theme, and they include images of the Scarab (scatter), Cleopatra, Pyramid, a Mechanical Pharaoh, Eye of Ra, Bastet, Horus, and the Ankh.


It’s a game with very high volatility, nevertheless, Rise of Giza: PowerNudge offer plenty of good deals like the great combination of features and the impressive top jackpot.

However, due to the high risk associated with its high variance, I can only recommend it to more experienced gamers.
