mystery buried in time

The Great Pyramids of Giza are surrounded by myths and legends, passed down from generation to generation. Many are those who have searched for hidden treasures and fame, and not least for the massive golden top-stones that once adorned the mighty buildings. Lost in time, hidden in a chamber far away from the public eye, they still remain untouched, awaiting discovery. Maybe we have looked at the right place, but not in the right way…

Professor Taylor and his nephew Benjamin leave rainy London behind to take you on an exotic adventure. They are deeply determined to solve the big mystery of the Great Pyramids’ missing golden topstones. Have these top-stones ever existed? If so, where are they buried now?

Flashbacks of ancient Egypt

The desert heat makes the air vibrate, and the intense sunlight makes you squint your eyes. It is almost as if the pyramids come alive, appearing in white and gold, and the Anubis guards look straight at you with their clear blue eyes. During the Flashback Respins feature one, two or three of the middle reels get completely covered by sticky wilds, resulting in more generous payouts.

Hidden is a colorful slot with five massive falling blocks. The 178 connecting paylines offer a clear and lucrative payout.
