Our infatuation to the history of ancient civilizations can be witnessed pretty much everywhere. We make movies, series and books, as well as try to emulate the designs and architecture of ancient times. Not to mention the fact that humans always strive to look to the past in order to understand the present and predict the future. It was, then, no wonder that this insatiable thirst for ancient times was transformed into a marvellous online casino game, Book of Ra Deluxe.
In the 24th century BC, the ancient Egyptians worshipped a sun god called Ra. Who knew that thousands of years later millions of people would be worshipping a different type of Ra in different casinos ranging from Las Vegas to Macau?
Furthermore, as technological development has given birth to online casinos, even larger numbers of people have been able to enjoy this marvellous classic! Whereas during the ancient times Ra represented life as a creator, death in the underworld and everything between, nowadays Ra brings joy, wealth and excitement in the form of lucrative wins, delicious free spins and exquisite bonus games.
Book of Ra is a 5-reel video slot with a fantastic audio-visual twist. Players can freely choose from the 9 paylines, or 10 in the Deluxe version, and in fact these activated lines can be modified at any time.
Furthermore, to maximize players’ flexibility and gaming experience, the bets for each line can also be adjusted. Book of Ra developer Novoline was cognizant of the fact that the online casino industry had become an incredibly competitive marketplace where satisfying players required more creativity and stronger incentives. Thus, it is no wonder that the theoretical win probability (Return-to-Player ratio) is relatively high at 96.99%.
Not unexpectedly the symbols honour Egyptian history. On top of the generic card-symbols, you will find, for example, Pharaoh, golden Book of Ra, Cleopatra, Scarab and of course a heroic looking Archaeologist. The golden Book of Ra is the Wild Symbol and will substitute for all symbols in case of a non-completed winning line.
In order to score a winning line, a line of 2-5 of the same symbols from left to right must be achieved. Three Book of Ra symbols in any reel will open the free spin bonus feature, giving 10 free spins. Additionally, with the Special Bonus Expanding Symbol, you can multiply your free-spin generated wins.
Because Book of Ra Deluxe is all about gambling, the game includes an exciting gambling feature in which a player can double his/her winnings. In order to do so, the player must choose the correct colour of a card drawn from a virtual deck. Obviously, players can choose to gamble after every win, and can also collect a win after a gamble without any minimum requirements. Speaking of requirements, Book of Ra can also be played on mobile!
In essence we can reiterate our earlier claim about Book of Ra: that, like its ancient god, it is omnipotent in its every form, and will surely reward the most loyal player.
