Theme & Symbols
From the name alone you should have a pretty good idea as to what this video slot game looks like and is all about. If you picture a sandy desert and pyramids you’d be right on the money.
Loading up the game for the first time you are greeted with a stunning opening animation as the play grid is formed in front of your very eyes. The grid is a gorgeous construction of gold and jewels, it’s laced with an incredible design that gives off the impression that it was used by kings and pharaohs alike.
Sands rise in the background and meet the base of two incredible looking pyramids that haven’t been touched by time. The tips of the pyramids still have their golden wraps as they did when they were first constructed.
The music is pretty fitting for the title, it feels like it belongs. It isn’t too loud and distracting, it’s exactly what atmosphere building background music should be. The same can be said about the sound effects, they do their job well, letting you know that something important happened or is about to.
Animations are nice, there is the intro cinematic which is superb which is followed up by some good looking animations on the symbols. You can tell that there is a breeze blowing in the background because sand sometimes whips across the screen. To top everything off the reels spin effortlessly.
Overall, Red Tiger Gaming has created another stunning video slot game that deserves to be played at least once.
