Pharaoh Tut which is short for Tutankhamen is known as ancient Egypt’s boy king. According to archaeological records it’s believed that certain officials of his royal court murdered him. As such Pharaoh Tut not only rises from the dead in this epic slots but he wreaks havoc across the reels as well.
Symbols on the reels are King Tut (Wild), rings, Horus pendants, pots, jewellery, scrolls and 4 hieroglyphic symbols. To the left of your screen you’ll see Pharaoh Tut. The audio track of the game is simply sublime and compliments the theme right down to a ‘T’ (pun intended).
Tut’s Twister has an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 97.1%.
The smallest bet per spin is £0.25 up to £125 per spin, the game can be played on smartphones and PC desktops. If you plan on playing the game for a long session you can use the Auto Play function, it spins the reels for you automatically from 10 up to 100 times. The coin range is 0.04 to 50.00, as the coin value increases so does your average bet per spin.
King Tut is the wild symbol, winning combinations are completed by it when it substitutes symbols adjacent to it.
Two wild Pharaoh Tut symbols trigger the Twister feature, one of the wild symbols will then be transformed into a twister, in return Pharaoh Tut then turns a full column wild.
Extra re-spins are awarded for every wild that appears but the wilds are also walking wilds which proceeds towards the wild twister column. A multiplier is awarded when a minimum of 3 wilds act as walking wilds. The multiplier starts at 2x and for every 3 wilds that appear during the re-spins the multiplier increases by 1.
As long as one wild is walking the Twister feature remains active. Once all the walking wilds are done, you’ll get a re-spin which gives you an extra wild, the reason for this is to keep the Twister feature active. If there are no more wilds the wilds that formed part of the Twister feature will be added to the reels for a final win.
There’s a bunch of hieroglyphs above the reels, to be eligible for the Collection bonus all of them must be filled. A random hieroglyphic symbols is revealed by the wild when it appears, the symbol is filled if it lands on an unfilled symbol. The Symbol Collection feature is initiated when the last hieroglyphic slots is filled.
The single wild is transformed by King Tut into a twister which gives you a re-spin. Hieroglyphic symbols from the triggering reel is randomly placed during the re-spin. Starting at a multiplier of 2x, each wild acts as a multiplier and increases for every 3 wilds that pitch. Every wild that appears is transformed into a walking wild which gives you a decent payout.
Theoretically Tut’s Twister sounds complicated but once you start playing the game it’s pretty straightforward. The game art is exceptional further augmented by a mesmerizing soundtrack that whisks you off to the land of the Pharaohs. We’ll play the game just to listen to the audio.
The re-spins with those increasing multipliers makes the slots a delight to play. The trick is to get as many wilds as possible during the re-spins. On all counts it’s not a novel theme since it’s been beaten to death by developers, yet Yggdrasil managed to pull it off in spectacular fashion.
