The Playtech Pharaohs Secrets slot is different to IGT's Pharaohs Fortune slot in several ways. It still has a free-spins feature but it is triggered by getting three Pyramid symbols anywhere in view rather than left-to-right on a pay-line. Additionally, this slot has 25 pay-lines as opposed to just 10 on the IGT slot plus optional expanding wilds on reels 2-4.
When you get the free spins on Pharaohs Secrets you pick a symbol from a grid that reveals how many free spins you get. Typically, this will be between 15 and 30 and the multiplier is always 2x. Retriggers are fairly common. The real pay-outs come when you get the expanding Pharaoh wild symbols on reels 2-4 of course.
As online slots utilising the popular Egyptian theme go, Pharaohs Secrets is pretty decent. It's lower variance than Pharaohs Fortune and it's not available at the same casinos (see the grid above) but it's good fun. I have actually seen a very similar slot in the Hilton casino in Budapest - almost identical except that the land-based one has topless female Pharaohs!
