Online casino supplier Pragmatic Play has dived into the mysteries of Ancient Egypt to draw inspiration for its latest online slot, which is now live and can be played by players from multiple markets through to the company’s ever-growing list of operator partners.
Rise of Giza PowerNudge, as the new title is called, not only replicates the splendor of Ancient Egypt with impeccable graphics and thematic sounds, but also introduces the provider’s newest innovative mechanic, PowerNudge.
This new mechanic serves as a more intricate alternative to a cascading win system and is featured in all phases of the game. PowerNuge is activated with every winning combination a player lands. It causes reels that make up the winning combo to nudge one position down and thus create new opportunities for more winning combinations.
A Scarab, a symbol of immortality and resurrection associated with Ancient Egypt, serves as the Scatter in this thrilling new title. When three or more of this icon appear on the reels, the Free Spins feature is triggered.
Winning combos can start from any reel. Players get eight free spins for three Scatters, 10 for four of this symbol, 12 for five Scatters, and so on. There is no cap on the number of free spins that can be awarded during the Free Spins game. In addition, a guaranteed payout of 5x the stake is awarded every time this mode is activated.
PowerNudge Also Available During Free Spins
The PowerNudge mechanic is also featured during Free Spins. It comes into play in this mode by increasing the multiplier by 1x after every nudge or a subsequent free spin.
Pragmatic Play said that in some markets where the game is offered, players are also able to buy into the Free Spins game for a cost of 80x their stake, producing a spin that contains at least three Scarab Scatters.
Rise of Giza PowerNudge joins a long list of exciting and widely-acclaimed Pragmatic Play-produced games, including other recent releases such as Book of Vikings, 5 Lions Megaways, and Buffalo King Megaways, among others.
Commenting on the newest addition to their already hefty online slots portfolio, Pragmatic Play Chief Business Development Officer Yossi Barzely said that they are delighted to introduce PowerNudge to one of their titles for the very first time and that this new mechanic has helped them design “a truly bespoke gaming experience” for their audiences.
He went on to note that Rise of Giza PowerNudge “revitalises the Ancient Egypt genre, keeping players on their toes with improved visuals, a lively soundtrack and a progressive mechanic that provides huge win potential!”
