The Book of Ra slot game series has been a magnificent success for Novomatic. The success of the original game has led to a whole range of ‘Book of’ games and more and more ‘Book of Ra’ sequels. Looking for treasure in Egyptian pyramids has never been so much fun.
The big job that Novomatic have on their hands is to keep on producing the Book of Ra games but include subtle little changes. You can’t just keep churning out exactly the same game time after time, audiences just won’t put up with that.
How do Novomatic achieve a game that’s the same theme but different? Did ‘Book of Ra Deluxe‘ pass the test? Well, in this latest game we have a total of six reels and that gives it a different look. Playing all six reels will entail having to activate the extra bet feature. This does increase the cost of paying the game.
There are ten paylines, again these aren’t a fixed amount. It’s up to you therefore to decide how many to activate on each spin of the reels and your stake. Don’t bet anything you can’t afford to lose, you’re in front of your PC, laptop or mobile device to have fun not add to financial worries.
Again the archaeologist who still looks just like Indiana Jones though a bit younger than Harrison Ford, is off to Egypt searching for the Book of Ra and other treasures. Symbols in the game include the archaeologist, Egyptian artefacts, The Book of Ra and the Ten to Ace playing card symbols.
As with the other games, the Book of Ra symbol barely gets a minute to itself. It’s the wild symbol so can get you wins by substituting for other symbols. It’s also the scatter symbol and helps get you into the bonus game. Why they can’t have two separate symbols I’m not sure, that archaeologist needs a better agent if you ask me.
With a few different features in the game, ensure you know exactly how everything works. That can be achieved by looking through the paytable. All the information you need about winning combinations, the bonus games and the extra bet are there waiting to be read. Also have some free games to see how all the features work, especially the extra bet and the expanding symbol.
All the control buttons are down below the screen so this is easy to operate. There’s also an autoplay feature that allows you to set some automated spins.
