Book Of Ra Deluxe Slot from Novomatic
Let the excavations begin with this Book Of Ra Deluxe slot game from Novomatic and the immersive Ancient Egyptian theme attached to the game. The ever-popular slot theme is presented across these slot reels in much the same fashion as the popular slot this game is an update of, with improvements being applied to the graphics and overall theme portrayal on the reels. Overall this slot game, theme and all, holds a fair bit of promise for the players, especially those familiar with the first version of this game or the developers themselves.
Looking beyond the pretty colours and charming Indiana Jones looking character that is included in this theme, players will find that this slots is fundamentally on the basic side of video slots of today, with a set of 5 reel and only some 10 pay lines across them. This is actually an improvement from the previous game by an additional pay line but fortunately the betting options offered in that slot are so too carried forward into this one, with a goodly spectrum of player being included in the range available. The bonuses are also quite noteworthy in this Book Of Ra Deluxe slot game with the majority of the focus here going to the rather exciting free spins feature included.
Theme Design and Presentation on the Reels
Constructing a slot theme based on Ancient Egypt is rather tricky as of late because of the sheer number of similarly themed slots around today. Fortunately for Novomatic this Book Of Ra Deluxe slot is based on an already existing slot game and so the theme choice was already tried and tested before they spiced up the graphics and added an extra pay line to the reels. The sound effects, animations and background support this theme choice too; with a fair degree of enthusiasm it must be said. Overall, whilst it is clear that the underlying theme is more of a classic one, the immersion and presentation of this theme is still quite evident.
As far as the symbols on the reels go these adhere to much the same as those in the aforementioned prequel slot and because of the limited pay lines players may find it rather beneficial to learn the different values attached to each of the symbols involved. This can be done through the accompanying pay table that is available to view throughout the spinning experience.
Onto Bonuses in Book Of Ra Deluxe
Though the slot is more inclined to the classic structure of gameplay than some of the more modern ones, the bonus features involved still have some rather lucrative potential. These include a Wild symbol, which has the ability to turn into the other pay table symbols and help with combinations on the reels which is always a benefit to the wallet.
The more notable bonus feature however is the free spins one and is triggered in this slot game through the Book Of Ra Deluxe bonus Scatter symbol. If players land 3 or more of these on the reels then they are awarded with 10 free spins which come with a 2 times multiplier and also the option, at the beginning of these spins, to turn one of the standard symbols into an expanding Wild for the rest of the feature, which makes it quite a lucrative one potentially.
