Pragmatic releases first slot machine with PowerNudge feature
Pragmatic Play has released its new online slot, completely in Egyptian theme and working with the new PowerNudge mechanism.
The new Pragmatic Play slot, called Rise of Giza PowerNudge, has beautiful graphics and sound effects that make playing the slot extra fun.
The most striking thing about the new slot machine is the PowerNudge mechanism. Whenever the player manages to land a winning combination, the PowerNudge will be activated. The PowerNudge mechanism is a nice variation on the Cascades system, which you can often encounter in a slot machine.
Theme and storyline
Rise of Giza: Powernudge combines two different themes. As the title suggests, Pragmatic Play takes us to Ancient Egypt in Rise of Giza: Powernudge. This theme has of course come up a lot in slots, but this time the theme has been given an interesting twist. The style is mainly very futuristic and has clear influences from the steampunk style. In the background, we see Egyptian statues and pyramids, but also a kind of floating ship that seems to come from the future. The playing field is surrounded by an ancient Egyptian building with hieroglyphs on the pillars, but there are also all kinds of chains and gears to discover. Rise of Giza: Powernudge has a playing field of 5 reels with 3 symbols per reel. There are a total of 10 fixed paylines on which you can make winning combinations.
How to win
To win you need to land 3 or more of the same symbols in a row on this, but these combinations don’t have to start on the first reel from the left! The combinations can be made anywhere on the playing field. However, instead of winning symbols falling into the playing field, reels with winning symbols are rotated one square further. As a result, the symbols fall on the bottom reel and new symbols are added to the top.
On the Rise of Giza PowerNudge slot, you can also earn free spins by collecting 3 Scatters – these are animated in the slot in the shape of a beetle.
On the website of Pragmatic Play, Yossi Barzely, commercial director, says that he is happy with the result of the new slot machine:
“The Pragmatic Play team is always looking for new ways to provide casino enthusiasts with a special experience. The PowerNudge mechanism is unique, challenges players and adds something to the existing game mechanics. We are curious about the reactions of Pragmatic Play fans who have played the slot!”
The Rise of Giza PowerNudge slot machine is playable in all online casinos that partner with Pragmatic Play.
