Important USA Note: IGT currently block US players from their online slot games,

the Vegas Online Slots site
I am sure anyone of you who has been to a land-based casino to play slots will have come across the Pharaohs Fortune slots
from IGT. Well the good news is that they have now created an online version of Pharaohs Fortune that not only plays
exactly like the original game but has a better payout percentage too and it's available to play
For those of you not familiar with this game then here's a brief rundown of why Pharaoh's Fortune is so popular and so
unique. The key - as ever - is in the bonus feature which is a free spins feature. When you trigger it by getting the 3
green Pharaoh symbols on a payline left to right on reels 1, 2 and 3 you get into the free spins. From here, you have a
number of blocks in a tomb which you click. Each one reveals an extra free spin or a multipler and you can win up to
19 free spins with a 6x multiplier. On top of that, if you retrigger the bonus during the free spins it gives you the
same number of spins again with the same multiplier!
There is one major difference in the online version which actually raises the payout percentage to a very decent
95%. That change is that while the game plays 10 paylines in normal mode, in the free spins mode it increases
to 20 paylines! There is also one minor difference in the sounds where the ring (if you can call it that!) that
accompanies the bonus symbols now accompanies the scatters instead! Why, I've no idea - makes zero sense!
My best hit on the Pharaohs Fortune slot came at the Wynn casino in Las vegas in November 2009. Typically, I was just sitting
at the machine near reception wasting time waiting for a friend to turn up so we could go for dinner and chucked $100 into
the Pharaohs Fortune slot that gave the best view of reception! I hit the free spins, got the maximum number and multiplier
and when my mate walked in, it was flying through them. He sat down just as it retriggered! I was trying to concentrate on
talking and being polite but in the corner of my eye I was watching the winnings stack up.
So I ended up with just over $1600 from an
initial $2 bet! A handpay! We had to sit there for 15 minutes while the attendant ran off to get my cash LOL. And in my hurry to leave
for dinner I left the residue of my $100 in the machine (about $80) so some lucky soul sat down after I had gone no doubt and had a
nice tip waiting!
Online Casinos with Pharaohs Fortune Slots
About These Casinos
All of the casinos listed above are very safe places to play, all licenced in Alderney and running IGT/Wagerworks
software. That means you don't have to download any casino software to play Pharaohs Fortune slots - it's all
run in a browser. At present, no IGT based online casino accepts American players I'm afraid but this will
change in time as regulation in the US draws nearer.
For UK players, these brands will probably be immediately recognisable. They are all really good casinos and aside
from the Pharaohs Fortune slot machine, you will also find IGT classics like the popular
Cleopatra slots, Kitty Glitter
and the Wolf Run slot among others at each casino.
