The pyramids are one of the Seven Wonders of the World, so it stands to reason that a website that refers to them is not only awe inspiring, but wealthy as well. At least, that’s what we’re hoping for when we visit the interface of Pyramids Fortune, a Nektan operated label that offers simple gaming both on desktop and mobile. To begin with, there’s not a lot that separates this website from other Nektan ones, however this is but the surface of what awaits us. To get a better idea of what fortunes await, we need to explore every section of this blue and gold domain.
New for 2017, this is one of several that Nektan have recently released, in a bid to deliver exceptional, fast paced gaming. Although it’s still early days, this particular site seems to be doing that, with seamless access to the games and promotions. But that’s not all we need to know right now, we also need to be aware of the regulations that control this brand, and what licenses are in place.
For that information you need to visit the About Us section; upon doing this you’ll see that there’s two licenses, one from The Government of Gibraltar and then another from the UK Gambling Commission. This is all well and good, but we also need to figure out what countries around the world this label is accessible to, as all online casinos, Nektan owned or not, have restrictions. In this instance, Pyramids Fortune doesn’t actually list any of the restricted territories, however we do know the ones allowed, which include the UK, Germany, and New Zealand.
You can be rich like Pharaoh when you play with Nektan’s Pyramids Fortune, thanks to the enormous welcome bonus available. Typically, Nektan keep the same promotions revolving across all their sites, but occasionally they add something new into the mix, like this reward worth £850.
To access that, you’ll need to make two deposits, with the first amount you allocate being tripled in size. Thereafter, your second deposit gets doubled, with a further 50% then added on top. Of course, if you want to get the full £850, you’ll need to deposit more than the minimum amount of £10. It’s worth noting, also, that there’s a wagering requirement of 30x. After this bonus, you then have several others to try out, all of which tend to be available on specific days of the week. This is the norm for Nektan, to ensure you’re always rewarded for returning.
Seeing as how our focus is on big money earners right now, we thought it best to investigate the VIP Club that Pyramids Fortune has in place. Or that is, we’d like to, however the site doesn’t load any information when you visit this section, with the page remaining blank. This could be a one off error, or it could simply be a poorly designed part of the site, either way it doesn’t instill much confidence in us. Arguably, this is one of the biggest problems with the brand thus far.

Upon accessing the Gaming Lobby, you’re introduced to the favourite titles of the current players, which showcases the best games around. This is a great design feature, as it shows the creme de la creme of titles, ensuring that players want to return and continue playing. Nektan always uses this tactic, and so far it’s served them extremely well.
If you want to search through the rest of the titles, they’ve been neatly packaged into different sections, some of which refer to the type they are, while others refer to their exclusive natures. Exclusivity is an element that Nektan do very well, as they partner up with brands such as NetEnt and NextGen Gaming, to deliver games you can’t find anywhere else. And the best bit? Most of these you can play without signing up to the brand; tap the demo option and you can get started. Please remember that Live Casino titles can’t be played for free, and will require you to be a member, standard or otherwise.
Before we get into the payment options and what rules they have, we need to point of the currencies that are allowed here, which are GBP, SEK, and EUR. This is fairly typical of Nektan, even more so given their European focus, which we discussed at the beginning of this review.
As for the brands you can deposit and withdraw with, they involve the likes of Skrill, Neteller, Visa, and Mastercard. Be careful when you select your method, as some providers, such as Boku, can’t be used to withdraw funds. In regards to withdrawals, there’s a 72 hour wait on the transaction, as well as minimum withdrawal limit of £20, with the maximum being £2,000.
As with any website, help will occasionally be needed, with the FAQs only suitable for smaller issues rather than the larger queries. This is when you need to refer back to the Support page, which provides you with contact details of the email address, telephone number, live chat, and postal address of this Nektan label. Out of all four options, live chat is the speedier, simply because of its accessibility, though we found that the email wait time was below 24 hours. In truth, it’s all about which option works best for you.
In regards to ‘opening times’, they’re not mentioned, however we can confirm that they’re 24 hours a day, seven days a week, allowing for ease of use all of the time. It’s one of the main elements that sets Pyramids Fortune apart from other Nektan owned sites, ones which tend to have limited hours are service.
We’d be lying if we said that we’d made a fortune here, but in all honesty that was never the sole aim of this review. Instead, we wanted to highlight any areas that needed improvement, and sing the praises of the site that ran efficiently and smoothly. Taking all of this into account, we’d say that Pyramids Fortune is a well running website from Nektan, but that it still has some way to go, seeing as how it’s still a young and upcoming gaming platform.
