Book of Ra Slot Review
Book of Ra is one of the most famous Egyptian themed slots in the gambling world. It was released all back in 2004 by the Novomatic provider and it is still popular among the online casino lovers even now. It may be outdated in the visual and sound department but its flexibility and high payouts make this game worth a try for both beginner and veteran gamblers.
The slot has a simple 5×3 layout and offers players 9 paylines they can adjust to their preferences before starting to gamble. Players can pick bet sizes within the range from C$0.02 to C$5 per line, and either set the game to Auto Play or spin manually.
Book of Ra has the RTP of 95% which guarantees you some big payouts, winning can be tricky though as the game variance is pretty high. The max amount you can win however, is a C$25,000 jackpot
Gameplay & Bonus Features
While not being visually impressive overall, the game still gives you the vibe of Ancient Egyptian civilization and is filled with adventurous spirit as you proceed to explore its secrets on your search for treasure. The reason for that is the amount of Egyptian-themed symbols.
The reels themselves have hieroglyphics on them and the symbols feature Golden Sarcophagus, Bird Statue, Scarab Beetle, the Archeologist and Book of Ra itself. These are considered the high value symbols. Lower symbols include the traditional letters K, A, J, Q, and number 10.
Payline wins in this game can be quite generous, for example when you get 5 Archeologist symbols on your winning line, you will earn 5,000. Second biggest paying symbol is Sarcophagus, which will pay you 2,000 for 5 of the kind.
The most interesting symbol in this game is Book of Ra, it functions as both a Wild and a Scatter. It being a Wild means that it can replace any other symbol on the screen to form a win. As a Scatter, it also provides you with a multiplier of 2x, 20x or 200x if you land 3 or more Book of Ra symbols.
Additionally, landing 3 or more Book of Ra Scatters at the same time will earn you 10 Free Spins and one of the symbols will randomly turn into another Scatter, covering the whole reel. Depending on the combinations you get during these 10 Spins, you may get incredible payouts. Sadly, the Free Spin session cannot be extended but you can activate it multiple times during the play session. You also have an option to gamble on your winnings from the spins up to 5x times by playing the mini-game where you will need to guess the color of the card that will be drawn next
