At this moment, there are three Book of Ra games that you can play: “Book of Ra Classic”, “Book of Ra Deluxe” and “Book of Ra 6”. The most popular from these three is Book of Ra Deluxe because of some simple reasons like “it looks better” or “it feels like I can win more in this one”. So I’m going to cover this version here.
So, the main difference between deluxe and classic is that the deluxe version has better graphics and the gameplay has improved a bit, you have a more desirable experience. Also, in the deluxe version you can bet on 10 paylines as opposed to the Classic version that has only 9 lines.
You have 5 reels and 10 paylines and you can bet minimum 10p per spin and a maximum of £400 per spin. A pretty nice betting range that is meant for every pocket.
The game has the classic slot music from almost all Novomatic slot games, and it may be a bit annoying if you played enough of them, but it’s their unique “symbol”.
Book of Ra has one of the most successful themes I’ve seen, even if we talk about finding it in an UK online casino or anywhere else, for that matter. It is about an explorer that goes to Ancient Egypt in order to find some hidden treasures. The color palette is quite pleasing and it makes you to travel with your mind right there in the midst of the Ancient Egypt.
Symbols and spins
You have the classic symbols like A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 which of course, offer lower rewards if you happen to win. There are also some special symbols like the scarab, Book of Ra, the explorer, the pharaoh and the golden statues of Ra.
Book of Ra offers the highest rewards in the game. Book of Ra is also the scatter symbol, which means that you can substitute for other symbols if needed in order to take some extra free wins.
An interesting thing is that the return to player ratio in the online casino version of Book of Ra is much higher than the land based version.
If you manage to get 3 Books of Ra on the screen, that activates 10 extra free spins. After this, a random symbol will be selected to be the second scatter symbol that expands across the screen. If you manage to get another 3 Book of Ra symbols on the screen, then you get another 10 extra free spins.
If you spend enough time in this game, you might find yourself very lucky and win some decent money. I guess patience is the trick here, otherwise you will probably lose all your money for nothing. Book of Ra is very dynamic in this sense, since you can win very easily but you can also lose very easily. Hope you have enjoyed this article.
