Blaze of Ra Slot Game Review
I wonder if the designers at the big games houses are all graduates in anthropology, archaeology or ancient history. They certainly love their ancient civilisations, and the latest designers to ask us to board a time machine to the past for the future of online video slots are Push Gaming, who are behind Blaze of Ra slot, a new Ancient Egyptian-linked slot.
Push Gamspecialiseslise in HTML5 games for mobiles, and include Fat Rabbit and Tiki Tumble among their recent output.
Blaze of Ra slot game, which came out late in 2017 and can be played on all platforms, offers a medium to high volatility experience with a theoretical return to player of 96.4%, is a five by four layout, with 40 pay-lines and delivering a top jackpot of 500,000 coins. Staking is from 0.20 coins to 100 on each spin.

These guys are real specialists in the look of games, and they’ve done a bang-up job this time out too. In the best mobile-design style, the reels are right up in your face, super clear and easy to see. The backdrop is a nicely atmospheric take on an Egyptian desert scene with Ra, the bird god, looking on.
The symbols are also beautifully designed. Above a jack-to-ace run of playing cards are the Egyptian gods and symbols:
- an ankh;
- a lotus flower;
- eye of Horus;
- Bastet – the cat-headed god, who pays out 20x stake for a full set of five.
Ra is here too, paying 2.5, 12, or 50 times stake for three, four, or five symbols respectively. He’s also the wild and a big part of gameplay.
Blaze of Ra Slot Free Spins & Bonuses
Nudging wilds are a base-game extra feature. When you see the Ra symbol at the top two positions of the reels before you spin, then you can expect them to nudge down the reels by one square each time you spin.
You’ll need to see the scatter to trigger the free spins. Three of the scarab beetle signs mean that you’re in the money. In the free spins round, you might enjoy some massive wins, with reels 1, 3, or 5 stacked with wilds, and extra free spins available each time you see the scarab again. This is a generous round.
There’s plenty of stuff to enjoy here. Although there are a load of Egyptian games out there this one really stands out for sparkling graphics, great theming, a good soundtrack and crystal-clear animation and play.
Even better than that is a rewarding base-game extra feature and a really good free spins feature. While it doesn’t have the numbers that some machines have, adding loads of extra wilds to the reels really could add up the coins, and may account for the machines high volatility and will certainly give the biggest wins.
If you feel like you’ve seen the past before then this new take on the Egyptian experience might be an invitation to spend more of your future there.
