Book of Ra Magic Slot Overview
We’re back off to Egypt again as Greentube, a brand name of Novomatic, take us back into Ancient history with the help of their archaeologist character and a load of ankhs, hieroglyphs and sarcophagi – or something like that – for another episode of their popular series of Book of Ra games.
The Facts and Figures
This is a five-reel slot with three rows of symbols visible, giving you a playing field of 15 symbols. A set of 10 pay-lines run across this ground.
The Book of Ra Magic slot game has a theoretical return to player of 95.03%, which is not very generous by current standards, but its high variance means it is (slightly) more likely to deliver bigger wins rather than more frequent small wins.
You could win a top prize of 50,000 coins (always check coin values and maximum pay-outs on the actual game you are playing as they may vary by the casino), on betting from 1 to 10,000 coins – which is a massively high range. Again, check betting limits on the site you’re playing at.
This Book of Ra Magic slot machine was released as recently as May 2018, and it looks very good indeed. The Card fonts are great, as are the symbols – a winged statue, a jewelled scarab beetle, and a sphinx head – all look great.
The Book of Ra itself and our archaeologists are the bonus symbols.
The full screen is atmospheric and beautifully lit, and the screen layout – on both big and small screen – makes it easy to play.
The Book of Ra is the bonus symbol and it’s a scatter. When you see three of these popping up on the reels you’ve triggered the bonus round. Congratulations, you have 10 free goes!
Not only that, but the bonus round also chucks in an expanding symbol at random. You can also add another round by triggering the bonus again, adding another different expanding symbol, and you can continue to do this until you have gone through a full set of nine symbols.
The Pay-lines in Book of Ra Magic slot reveal these results:
The 10, Jack and Queen pay 0.5 coins for three, 2.5 for four, and 10 for five symbols. Ace and King pay 0.5, 4, and 15.
The scarab pays 0.5 (for two), 3 for three, 10 for four, and 75 for five. The winged statue pays 0.5, 3, 10, and 75. The Sphinx’s head pays 0.5, 4, 40, and 200. The Book of Ra pays 2 for three, 20 for four, and 200 for five (as well as triggering the bonus round). The archaeologist pays 1 for two, 10 for three, 100 coins for four and 500 for a full house.
The Final Verdict
There’s nothing not to like about this game. It looks good, plays beautifully – on all the platforms we tried – and has entertaining and compelling gameplay. The one minor issue is that the Book of Ra Magic slot RTP is low for the current market and the volatility is high. But these measures are very marginal in the modern market, and you should certainly give this slot a spin if you like Egyptian themes.
