Legacy of Ra Megaways Slot Overview
Let Blueprint Gaming hold a torch and lead us on an expedition into the heart of Ancient Egypt. Warm firelight bounces off the ancient stone walkways as we get closer and closer to the tomb. But what will we find there? A horde of untouched riches, or a bare room, emptied by long-forgotten raiders?
Such is the suspense and drama of playing Legacy of Ra Megaways slot. With a massive jackpot and extreme volatility, the game can turn men into kings. Or, make them come back and search for the Pharaoh’s treasure another day.
As well as bolting on the popular Megaways game engine, we get a couple of extra features to help turn a profit such as Expanding Symbols and Free Spins.
Searching buried chambers for riches can be time-consuming work. To save you the time, Blueprint Gaming has also added a tempting buy now feature that speeds up the process. Beware though, it guarantees a bonus feature, but it doesn’t guarantee a horde like Tutankhamun’s. That is the tantalising success of the game – it could be a dud session, or it could be a life changer!
Exotic imagery and fabulous figures
The game uses the Ancient Egyptian them well without going too overboard. A nice intro screen sets the mood, and the reels sit beneath columns, burning fires, and of course, Pyramids in the background. An exotic, desert-inspired, theme song plays throughout which is pleasant but can get repetitive after a while. The theme is pretty generic, and it quietly sits back doing its thing, never getting in the way of some serious slots business.
Why so serious? Well, Legacy of Ra Megaways slot carries a hefty top prize of up to 50,000x the stake! With bet sizes ranging from 0.10 coins to 100 coins, we are talking about a museum full of treasure here. To get anywhere winning that amount of loot is going to take a fair share of luck, and help from the extra features.
Previous Ra incarnations typically had 9 or 10 pay lines. That number looks low now after the inclusion of Megaways has bumped it up to 15,625 ways to win. It does this by changing the number of rows on its 6 reels from 2 to 5. As long as the same kinds of symbols are next to each from the first reel, they form a winning combination. There can be many winning combinations on each spin, which seriously bolsters the payout potential.
Gameplay and features
There are 10 base game symbols which pay out in winning combos. The lower half is your typical 9 – A symbols that start at 0.10x the stake for 3, and move up to 1x the stake for 6 of a kind.
The top half of the paytable has the Scarab and the trio of gods for 0.30x – 2.5x the stake. Then comes the bird for 0.5x – 5x, and topping the table is the female adventure for 0.50x – 25x the wager for 6.
They aren’t hugely valuable on their own but not bad either. When several of them do land in multiple pay lines, their worth can quickly add up.
The golden Pyramid symbol is the Wild and has one job which is to substitute for any other symbol in the game except the Legacy of Ra symbol. That one is the Scatter. Land three or more Scatters and you’ve won yourself some Free Spins! The schedule goes like this:
- Three scatters = 10 Free Spins.
- Four scatters = 15 Free Spins.
- Five scatters = 25 Free Spins.
- Six scatters = 50 Free Spins! Result!
Before the Free Spins start, one of the symbols (fingers crossed for a high paying one) is randomly selected. If three or more of these land anywhere on the reels at the same time, they expand to cover the entire reel. Pay lines are calculated, no matter which reels they are on, and mega wins can result.
Ra Bonus Bet
In general, what is the main problem with Free Spins? They don’t come around quickly enough, right? No problem, Blueprint has this angle covered with the Ra Bonus Bet. Click on this, and the next spin is guaranteed to land at least 3 Scatters, maybe more. There is a slight catch. The Ra Bonus Bet will cost you 100x the stake to trigger. During standard play, the game carries an RTP rating of 96.01%, during the Ra Bonus Bet it moves up by one point to 97.01%.
After a lull in play, it can be pretty darn tempting to cut to the chase and click the Press to Buy button. Like always, give it a crack in free play first if you are feeling nervous. We tried this feature out several times. Sometimes it worked out well in our favour, at others, well, better luck next time.
What makes Legacy of Ra Megaways slot so special?
Legacy of Ra Megaways will appeal to a wide range of gamers. But it is not one for the faint-hearted, or those looking for frequent payouts. This is an extremely volatile game combined with an average RTP but a massive top jackpot. This means that wins can be few and far between, but mega win they do drop. Perfect for some heavy duty gaming, not so great if you don’t like riding out the slow patches.
The Megaways engine works perfectly with this theme and format. Particularly with the expanding symbols during the Free Spins. Get a good number of reels covered in the special symbol, and the masses of pay lines can make the winnings skyrocket. Knock off a couple of these during a 50 Free Spins round, and you will know all about it!
What makes this slot special is that it is a non-nonsense gamblers game. The stakes are as high as you want to make them and the payoff can be immense. For example, you want to really try your luck? If it’s within budget, then how about hitting the Ra Bonus Bet button? You just never know what might happen…
