Here’s another slot game that takes Ancient Egypt as its theme. That country and era has been so popular over the years for designers of slot games and there have been some massive ones released. This slot game has an attractive look to it and there are some good winning opportunities available.
With there being so many games with an Ancient Egyptian theme, it’s a difficult task to create something that is a little bit different. The look to this game is an attractive one but lacks a background that features the usual pyramid or desert scene. This review feels ‘Ramses II’ is a colourful but rather basic game that looks a bit old-fashioned but above and below the reels there are Egyptian characters and hieroglyphics.
This is a five-reel game that has three rows of symbols and just the nine pay-lines. Those nine pay-lines aren’t fixed and you can use the control buttons underneath the reels to set either one pay-line, three, five, seven or all nine. The minimum cost of playing all the pay-lines is 0.09 and the maximum 450 so a high roller will appreciate this slot. Simply ensure you play at a level you feel financially comfortable with. ’Ramses II’ can be played on a variety of devices including your PC, tablet, and iPhone.
The symbols in the Ramses II slot by Novomatic are suitably Egyptian as you would expect to be the case. There’s a golden sphinx, a muscle-bound guy with an Egyptian headdress on, a pharaoh, the lovely sight of the pyramids as the sun sets, a camel, a scarab beetle, a golden eagle and then the nine to Ace playing card symbols. Those playing card symbols are a big disappointment here because they don’t add anything to adhering to the theme of this game.
The wild symbol in this game is the Ramses symbol. Players need to keep an eye out for this as it can substitute for other symbols to get you more and more winning combinations. Not just that, it’s also the highest paying symbol in this game and if five of them come along on a pay-line, that wins you a 900x multiplier of your line bet. Talking about multipliers, any win that contains the wild symbol is doubled. It can’t substitute for the scarab beetle which is the scatter symbol in this game as that would help you trigger the bonus game.
In order to win some free spins, you need to get at least three of the scarab beetle scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This gives you a total of 15 free spins and any wins that you get during them will be tripled. That makes this a lucrative bonus round.
Make sure you do some homework before pumping some real cash into this game. That means playing some free Ramses II slots to see how everything works and making sure you look through the paytable to find out more about the rules of the game. That’s ideal preparation for when this Egyptian battle begins for real.
When you get a winning combination when playing the Ramses II video slot, you are given the opportunity to win some more cash. This is another Novomatic video slot that offers its players a gamble feature. You don’t have to play this but if you do, your task is to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card. Be successful and you double your win, get it wrong and you lose your win. You can try this up to five times but have a go at it yourself with a pack of cards to see just how hard a task this is. Best to use this for small wins from the playing card symbols but not big wins.
Responsible gambling is very important when you play for real money and it’s not all about how much you stake. Make sure that you keep track of how much you are gambling and your win/loss situation. It’s easy to get yourself engrossed in a game and just lose track of how you are getting on. If you are going through a dry spell then it’s best to quit for a while and hope for better luck next time.
