Ancient Egypt is undoubtedly very well represented in online slots and fans of the genre are better served than virtually any other style of game. The industry’s love affair with the theme is long and storied and is certainly not just an online occurrence. The theme started gaining traction and popularity among the player base in land based casinos, with some leading releases going on to become bona fide classics in their own right. Perhaps the best example on an international scale is Book of Ra from Novomatic. The game is somewhat simple by modern standards but initially took Europe by storm before proceeding to become an international classic and one that is highly regarded by many. It also single-handedly pushed Novomatic into the spotlight and saw them capitalise on the game’s undoubted popularity on a longer term basis through the launch of Book of Ra Deluxe, an updated and refined version of the game for a more widespread audience. This template formed the backbone of Novomatic’s success and saw each of their popular titles entering the series in the same manner. Both versions of the game were converted for online play and can both be found here at Mr Gamez.
