Before you begin to play you must first place your bet. You have the option of playing with 5 reels, in which case the minimum bet is 20p, or you can choose to go with 6 reels, and the minimum bet is 40p. Once you’ve chosen, you then spin the reels. The aim is simple, just match symbols and create winning combinations across 10 fixed paylines.

The lower paying symbols include:

  • playing cards,
  • 10 through Ace

The higher paying symbols include:

  • a sarcophagus,
  • a Scarab beetle,
  • a winged Idol
  • an archaeologist.

These symbols are extremely high paying, for example, landing 6 archeologists in a row will result in a payout of 7500x your initial stake. The mythical Book of Ra is the game’s only bonus symbol, and it functions as both the wild and scatter symbol. This symbol can substitute for any other in the game to form winning combinations, as well as trigger some of the game’s bonus features.

Jackpots:

Book of Ra Deluxe 6 isn’t a progressive jackpot slot and doesn’t offer a single lucrative bonus. However, should you opt for the 6 reel option, there are some very large winnings to be had via the regular gameplay.

The game has a medium variance as the large prizes can all be won in the regular gameplay and there’s no need to enter a bonus round or randomly be awarded the chance to play for a jackpot.However, the game can be a little hungry at times, and you may find yourself spinning the reels for a while before landing a winning combination. The RTP currently stands at 95.03%.

Special Features and Bonuses:

  1. Free Spins Feature: This feature is activated whenever you land 3 or more of the “Book of Ra” symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens, you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. As an extra little bonus, one of the symbols will expand to cover all 3 positions on its reel, and this will potentially result in more winning combinations
  2. Gamble Feature: Each time you land a winning combination you will be given the choice to either collect, or gamble your winnings. Should you decide to gamble, you will be asked to correctly guess the color of a randomly drawn playing card. Each time you guess correctly your winnings will be doubled, but should you guess wrong you will lose it all.
  3. Sixth Reel Feature: This feature is the main difference between this game and the original. If you click the “Extra Bet” button, the 6th reel will be in play and minimum bets will be doubled. This feature gives you the chance of more winning combinations, and greatly increased winnings. To turn it off, simply click the button again.

Graphics and Sounds:

The game has a great Ancient Egyptian theme. The symbols are both eerie and enchanting and include some of Ancient Egypt’s more creepy images, such as a sarcophagus. The game’s background is an inside wall of a pyramid and is covered in hieroglyphics. Overall, the graphics are well designed and help create an immersive atmosphere. The game also features the signature Novomatic soundtrack, which is a great accompaniment to this wonderful slot.

Conclusion:

In conclusion, Book of Ra Deluxe 6 is a great sequel to the highly popular original. Novomatic fans may be slightly disappointed that the game doesn’t offer too much more than its predecessor. However, the bonus 6th reel is a great touch which adds to the game’s excitement and massively increases the potential winnings.
