Graphics and Basic Play
Admittedly, the graphics leave a little to be desired. There is a strong whiff of the early 90’s here, but you’re not playing because you went looking for something flashy. Think more along the lines of Tom Cruise in the classic film Cocktail,
a few dodgy moves and one too many nylon shirts, but a true classic none the less.
Now back to play, as we mentioned earlier there is a 100,000 coin jackpot. This is triggered by getting five 100,000 Pyramid logo symbols (the wild card in this game) on an active payline. Also good to know is the 100,000 Pyramid logo symbol can
take the place of any other symbol in the game, greatly increasing the chances of lining up a complete winning combination.
Symbols and Free Spin Bonus Feature
The other symbol you need to be aware of is the Winner’s Circle Pyramid symbol (the scatter symbol), three or more of these scattered anywhere on the five reels will activate the games Winner’s Circle Pyramid Bonus feature. This is the main attraction, so take note. To start, six free spins are rewarded with x1 multiplier, and from there you have five picks to increase the number of free spins and multipliers. Each choice will reveal either an extra free spin or an increased multiplier. You can sometimes also reveal an extra selection, or advance arrow which will take you onto the next level of the Pyramid. For you lucky ones out there, up to 36 free spins with a 9x multiplier could be awarded. For most of us, we can expect approximately twelve to fifteen free spins and a multiplier in the range of 2x to 4x.
Once you have your picks, the Pyramid is revealed and you move on to the Free Spins Bonus Round. Here you play your free spins on highly enhanced bonus reels, configured to the multiplier value you earned. Unfortunately, players are unable to retrigger free spins once inside this feature. All winning combinations exposed while playing the free spins are subject to your multiplier, except for the top award of five 100,000 Pyramid Logo symbols. Once all the free spins have been played, you return to the regular game and your Free Spin wins are added to your win total.
This tribute to the classic gameshow lives up to its name with an impressive $100,000 top prize.
The slot is filled with colourful symbols including the game logo, which also doubles as a wild.
Overall, The C$100,000 Pyramid is a classic slot that for many, may never lose its appeal. Charm and character are the key words here. So while newer, more refined games come out all the time this slot remains, hanging out, sipping Gin n’ Tonic with the other great IGT oldies such as Da Vinci Diamonds and Cleopatra.
It’s a medium to high variance slot, meaning that wins don’t come so often, however the return when they do is worth the wait. In this game it really is all about the free spins or the jackpot. Thankfully though, unlike it’s predecessor, you don’t have to bet max and that, regular players will know, is a rare thing. In fact anyone, at any level, can win the whopping C$100,000 times your line bet, at any point during the game, making it a surprisingly democratic slot.
