Apparently, the name “Valley of Pharaohs” is corrupted from The Valley of the Kings—this former royal rocky graveyard, now an archeological location, is on the western section of River Nile where, for five centuries between 1600s and 1100s BC, ancient Egyptians buried their rulers. Three symbols require 2X, 3X, 4X, and 5X combinations, while seven symbols require 3X, 4X, and 5X combinations.
