Pyramid King (Pragmatic Play) slot review
Pyramid King slot (Pragmatic Play) reminds us of the blockbuster Wolf Gold, with a touch of Book of Ra
Pyramid King is an excellent Pragmatic Play slot and comes packed with appealing features, including the attractive Money Respin feature and Free spins with expanding symbols.
And, to top it all off, there are three non-progressive Jackpots.
In short, there is more than enough going on here. After a few dull Pragmatic Play slots (Hot to Burn, Ultra Burn and Book of Tut), it’s more than welcome!
And who hasn’t enjoyed Wolf Gold, Pragmatic Play’s most popular slot of all time?
It continues to appeal to the masses, as there is always something going on there!
With the Pyramid King slot, you can win up to 2,500x the bet.
With a stake of €125, it is possible to take home a blistering 700 grand. Let’s go to Egypt!

Pyramid King slot – Gameplay and Features
Pyramid King has 25 fixed paylines and the usual 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols.
The 4 Egyptian Symbols are the premium symbols (blue Anubis mask, ring, serpent and golden ankhs). The lower-tier symbols are the J, Q, H and A.
The wild symbol is the Pharaoh, which replaces all symbols except the Bonus Symbols and the camels (symbols with cash prizes).
Money Respin Feature – camels with cash prizes
You activate the Money Respin feature if you spin at least six camels.
You see that all camels have a money prize. Now you get at least three respins. The camels you’ve already spun remain sticky. All other symbols disappear.
If you spin a new camel in 1 of the respins, the counter of respins is reset to 3. So, only if you fail to spin a camel for three consecutive times, will this feature end.
At the end of the feature, all cash prizes of the camels are summed and added to your balance.
It’s also possible that a camel does not have a cash prize, but instead has the Minor or the Major Jackpot. These jackpots yield wins of 30x and 100x the bet, respectively.
If you get the entire screen full of camels, you can do the “Walk like an Egyptian” dance. In that case, you win the GRAND Jackpot of a massive 1,000x the bet.
Yes, we’ve seen the Money Respin feature at Wolf Gold. But it is and remains thrilling.
Spin three parchment symbols for 10 free spins
To get access to the free spins, you need a Bonus Symbol (parchment) on reels 1, 3 and 5.
It yields 10 free spins.
If you spin three or more Bonus Symbols again during the free spins, you’ll get another 10 free spins. There is no limit to the number of retriggers.
Before you enter the free spins bonus, you are assigned a special symbol, which acts as an expanding symbol.
With this feature, the symbol (if it appears on a reel) expands over the entire reel. Furthermore, the symbols don’t have to be “adjacent” (from reel one onwards and adjacent) to be a winning combo.
They only expand if they are part of a winning combo.
You are fortunate if the Pharao or the Anubis is the special symbol AND if these symbols appear on all five reels. Then they will expand on all reels, and that gets you a full screen. The win is 500x the bet.
Payout percentage (RTP)
Pyramid King’s RTP is 96.5%, which is fine.
Pyramid King slot – a medium to high variance
According to Pragmatic Play, the variance of Pyramid King is “medium to high” (score is 3.5 out of 5).
Therefore, most top wins are around 500x to 1,200x the stakes. The Grand Jackpot is already 1,000x the bet, and it’s not here for decoration.
Anyway, you can’t win more than 2,500x the bet.
Pros and cons
- There is always something going on here, thanks to the free spins AND last but not least, the Money Respin Feature.
- Massive prize potential
- Reminds us of Wolf Gold and Book of Ra
- You’re not going to get life-changing wins.
- The minimum bet is 25 cents. For certain groups of players, that could be too high.
- I don’t get it, that for an Egyptian themed slot, a Night of the Proms song is played if you win big.
So, who will like the slot? And who won’t?
This slot, like most Book of Ra slots, is exciting and mysterious. Add to that, the Money Respin Feature, and you end up with a tremendous slot.
Players that are looking for wins of thousands of times the bet should play a more volatile slot.
