The moment I open the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ slot I hear a familiar sound, the sound of symbols falling into place instead of reels turning. It’s the sound I’ve heard for the first time when playing Gonzo’s Quest™ straight after its launch in 2010. It was from this moment on I started to appreciate NetEnt for certain aspects such as originality and innovation. Even though I was writing about online casino games for over a year, video slots were rather monotonous at that time often showing a 3×5 design offering a Wild feature, Scatters, and Free Spins. The most exciting slots back then were those offering a Bonus Games, a step forward but still not good enough to get me really enthusiastic.
I might be wrong, but I remember Gonzo’s Quest™ being the first online slot that started with an intro, a short introduction in which you meet Gonzo, the Spanish Conquistador. 3D animations were taken to a completely new level by NetEnt and never before I saw such cutting-edge animations used for a video slot. It didn’t take long for Gonzo to become my favourite slot character and until today he is still my favourite.
Besides a muttering though original slot character, NetEnt has done a perfect job with the gameplay too, replacing the traditional reel spin by introducing the Avalanche™ feature whereby the symbols fall into place on the reels. In my eyes, this particular video slot was its time ahead and now, a bit more than five years later, Gonzo’s Quest™ could have been one of the innovative new NetEnt slots. Instead, the autumn of 2015 brought the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ slot to the NetEnt Casinos, bringing back the revolutionary Avalanche™ feature. The best of Gonzo’s Quest™ is now combined with the layout of Wild Rockets™ offering players a mix of some of the best slot features including the brand new Wild Generations.
Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ will open the door into the ancient world of Pharaohs and Gods, a wondrous and breathtaking journey back in time. On your quest for immortality, you will find yourself in a long-lost pyramid packed with treasures. So take a step into the wondrous world of ancient Egypt while enjoying marvelous slot features such as Wild substitutions, Wild Generations, a Multiplier and the revolutionary Avalanche™ feature.
Not exactly new, as seen before in the Wild Rockets™ slot, the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ slot is offering five distinctive reels, responsible for the 720 bet ways to win. This time, the five distinctive reels have been turned upside down, perfect for the pyramid playing a key role in this exciting NetEnt slot.
With a minimum bet of 0.10 and a maximum bet of 200.00, all type of players will be attracted by Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™. No matter if you prefer to play with small stakes or being a high roller, a wide range of betting options make sure you’ll always find yourself a perfect bet.

Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ slot features
Offering the layout of Wild Rockets™, responsible for the 720 bet ways to win, the ever fascinating Avalanche™ feature is, of course, bringing most excitement to the reels. Although I have to admit that none of the slot features would have done such a great job in combination with the rest of the slot features. This means that the Avalanche™ feature might have been boring when win lines involved and without the brand new slot feature called Wild Generations. All of them are as important as the Avalanche™ feature, although I am glad to see this popular feature back in such a brilliant slot game as Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™.
As seen before in the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot, a game round is made up of a series of Avalanches where symbols fall into position, instead of spinning. When a winning combination has been formed, the symbols involved explode and disappear, leaving space for a second Avalanche of symbols for a chance of even bigger wins. This amazing slot feature keeps on going until no new winning combinations can be made which can be seen as a series of re-spins as no extra bet is paid once the Avalanche™ feature is activated. Avalanches and each subsequent Avalanche multiplies the overall win by up to x10 while this frantic and satisfying slot feature is complemented with perfect sound effects such as the thumping of the bricks dropping into place.
Wild Substitutions and Wild Generations
Of course, a Wild feature can’t be missed in such a brilliant video slot. The theme might be ancient, but the Wild generations are their time ahead. Again NetEnt managed to come up with an advanced slot features not seen before in any online slot. Wild Generations work exactly the same as a standard Wild feature as it substitutes for any other symbol. A symbol that lands on top of reels 2, 3 or 4 and is part of a winning combination, turns into a Wild symbol for the next Avalanche.
If all the above isn’t attractive enough yet, bringing more than enough excitement to the reels, NetEnt decided that an Avalanche Multiplier could not be missed in the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ slot. The Avalanche Multiplier was available in Gonzo’s Quest™ as well but this time you are offered a maximum Multiplier of x10. The Avalanche Multiplier increases by 1 with every 3 successive Avalanches containing at least one bet way win, up to a maximum multiplier of x10.
Maximum win available per spin
While the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ slot has a lot to offer, bringing you a 720-bet way, five distinctive reels counting video slot with features such as Wild substitutions, Wild Generations, a Multiplier and the Avalanche™ feature, I would like to emphasize the maximum win available in this incredible NetEnt slot. Never before I saw the maximum payout high as €7.2 million per spin, making me wonder when I am going to write about the first big Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ winner.
