There are many different slot theme choices out there for both player and developer alike to explore and test out, and one of the more popular of these has to be the theme of Ancient Egypt and all that this entails. Whether it is the treasure, mystery or colour scheme that makes this theme so popular matters little in the long as the result is that there are a lot of slots with these themes from a whole range of top online game developers. This particular slot game is called Book Of Ra and comes from Novomatic, which bodes well straight off the bat.
Changing the focus from the theme for a moment and we find that at a fundamental level this slot consists of 5 reels and just 9 pay lines, which isn’t a whole lot compared to the more eccentrically setup video slot of today. There are a fair few betting options though, courtesy of a top developer like Novomatic, with the buttons for these all laid out below the reels in an orderly fashion. Perhaps the biggest selling point of this Book Of Ra slot game though comes from the bonus features aspect of this slot, in which players can find a rather lucrative free spins feature and a few other bonuses on top of this.
Jumping back to the Slot’s Theme Choice
Helping players explore this theme of Ancient Egypt on the reels of this Book Of Ra is an Indiana Jones type character, with only the whip really missing from his apparel. This does build up quite an atmosphere on the reels, with the idea being that players feel like archaeologists exploring undiscovered ruins and temples. The graphics in this slot game aren’t spectacular, at least not compared to the improvement applied to the deluxe version of this iPhone online slot game but still present the reels and action thereon well enough for some immersive gameplay.
Like any slot, but probably more specifically ones themed in this nature, the symbols on the reels are a big player in the theme construction. In Book Of Ra slot game from Novomatic there are the symbols players will perhaps expect to see given that this theme choice is such a popular one for slot games. Even with the small number of pay lines player will do well to study up on the symbols in this slot game through the pay table supplied.
Digging for Bonus Features in this Slot
Like any good archaeologist it is the players that must work towards excavating the bigger wins in the form of bonus features available in this Book Of Ra slot from Novomatic. The first of these is the Wild symbol, which can substitute for others on the reels and hopefully allow for more wins to be landed.
It is the free spins feature of this slot though that has made it as popular as it is in the land based setting it started out at. This is triggered through the Book Of Ra bonus symbol on the reels when players manage to land 3 or more onto the reels. The minimal lines won’t have an effect here as this feature is triggered through a Scatter symbol. Players will be awarded 10 free spins along with a 2 times multiplier and a choice of symbol to turn into expanding Wild which makes the result of this feature quite a rewarding one.
