Nothing teaches history lessons better than a game, and although Book of Ra slots don’t have tremendous educative values, it is extremely entertaining. The name itself suggests that the game is set in an ancient background, with players turning into explorers and embarking on an epic quest. The best case scenario implies that their adventure will not only reveal the ancient mysteries of Egypt, but also trigger massive payouts that can make the effort worthwhile.
The game developers did a brilliant job in tapping into the immense potential of Egyptian mythology and the symbols depict pyramids, tombs, pharaohs and of course the brave explorer. The Book of Ra promises to be more than a regular online slot and brilliantly incorporates fantasy elements, turning the entire story into more than a regular exploration of the past. Although the reels are sent in the background of a tomb, there is nothing frightening about this decor and players will love to spend time spinning the reels.
An interesting mix of traditional symbols and innovative ones including play cards graces the reels and players get to see golden statues alongside sarcophaguses and cards ranging from 10 to Ace. Without being a 3-D slot, the Book of Ra has several animations that were created in three dimensions while they constantly charm users by showcasing symbols created with attention to details.
If you don’t know what Egyptian music sounds like, then rest assured that this slot will provide you with an insight into this colorful world. The songs are engrossing and brilliantly succeed in making time pass easier while enhancing the overall experience. Different symbols award various payouts and that’s why each time players line up several of one kind, they are pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
Arguably the most pleasant surprise is delivered by the wild and scatter symbols, which substitute regular ones while triggering multipliers and free spins. The developers didn’t forget about the immensely popular gamble feature, which is activated by default at the end of each winning ground. It is entirely up to the players to take their chances and try to double up their profits, or settle for what they were awarded.
The other bonus is awarded by the scatter feature with three of them triggering the release of 10 free spins which unfortunately cannot be retriggered. Last but definitely not least, there is the bonus awarded by the book symbol which can replace other symbols and lead to lucrative combinations.
