The Ancient Egypt theme has been used since forever in the making of slot games, so Red Tiger Gaming decided to participate yet another time. The 5 reel, 3-row slot, with 10 ways to win is called Wings of Ra and it can be quite unpredictable at times. The game has got something for every player out there, especially for the ones who enjoy the, by now, classic theme.
It is hard making a game with a common theme, unique and different in its own way. As one of the top gaming providers out there, Red Tiger will deliver as promised and will definitely not disappoint. Players should not expect anything new to see, at least appearance-wise. The designers stayed within the imaginary guidelines set for making an Egyptian-themed slot game but they did get quite innovative when it comes to the features.
The background is, of course, the entrance to a temple. The setting is mysterious, just like we are used to from this type of game. There are hieroglyphs on the walls and some plants to accessorize the scene. The soundtrack also contributes to the theme a lot and it consists of traditional instruments with some cheerful sound effects added when the reels are spun.
The symbols are also nothing we have not seen before, but it is understandable since they do represent some of the biggest parts of the Egyptian culture. They include the regular royals with an interesting design to fit the theme, as the low paying symbols. Then there are Horus, Tutankhamen, the Eye of Ra, and a pharaoh representing the high paying ones.
The game is made for the players who like to bet strategically and not go all out. The minimum a player can bet is 0,10 and the maximum is 20 coins per spin. The payouts are quite decent and they go up to 300x the stake in a single spin. The RTP of the game is set at 95,65%, which is definitely on the lower side, especially considering that this is a highly volatile game. The game manages to keep the player on their toes all throughout since it is very unpredictable.
The features are what make this game stand out at least a bit from the rest. The Free Spins are the star of the show. They are triggered when the player lands 3, 4 or 5 free spins symbols anywhere on the reels. The player then gets 12, 15 or 18 free spins depending on the number of triggering symbols.
The game features a Mystery Coin symbol that reveals a random mystery symbol to hopefully help out with the wins. In the Free Spins feature, the player gets to collect the symbols and the progress is shown on the progress bar at the very top. Every time the progress bar gets filled up, and for that, it needs 14 collected symbols, it turns all lowest paying symbols into Mystery Coins, hopefully awarding a huge payout.
Last but not least, the game offers the classic Gamble feature that lets the player double their wins simply by clicking for the arrow to stop and hopefully on the green side. The player can also adjust the difficulty of hitting the green side. The more difficult it gets, the greater the wins will be. In case it lands on the red side, the player gets nothing and returns to the base game.
The providers made the usual Egyptian theme to keep its trademarks and classic cultural symbols, but they managed to make a difference when it comes to the graphics and overall design of the background and characters. There are not that many features that the game offers, but they do have amazing winning potential. The only downside is the RTP that is frankly quite low for a high volatility game.
