According to the legend, the great pyramids in Giza were built to match certain constellations in the sky. That was their way to pay respects to the gods. We are not sure that modern science has ever proved this legend to be true, but we do know for a fact that ELK Studios used the story to develop Cygnus, a six-reel video slot that offers from 4,096 up to staggering 262,144 ways to win.
