Design and Theme
Dice of Ra slot machine drags players into the mysterious world of ancient Egypt, thanks to the brilliant design that it features. The reels of the game have been placed in the heart of Egypt with eerie orange skies, sky-scraping pyramids and sands for as far as the eye can reach. Either side of the reels is where the paylines are situated.
The four progressive jackpot panels are placed above the reels with a control panel to the lower of the screen. There’s no need to filter through various options to get to the bet that suits your budget, because you can click one of the following bet options to start the reels spinning; 1.50, 3.00, 7.50, 12.00 or 15.00.
Kudos to EGT because the symbols on the reels have been designed to replicate various coloured dice with Egyptian themed items, these are; white number 6 Tutankhamun, white number 6 Cleopatra, stone number 5 with Hieroglyphics, grey number 4 with sphinx, grey number 4 with eye of Horus, brown number 3 with Anubis, grey number 3 with hook and flail, charcoal 2 with vase, charcoal 2 with Ankh, beige number 2 with eagle and black 1 with a treasure chest. Other symbols include the Scarab white and scatter white dice.
There are 5 reels and 15 different paylines with the Dice of Ra slot machine, you can choose to play 1, 5, 7, 10 or 15 paylines if you wish. Minimum stakes for all 15 paylines are 1.50, while maximum stakes are 15.00.
There are four progressive jackpots on offer; clubs is level one and offers the smallest jackpot and the cash prizes grown and grow through the following tiers; diamonds, hearts and spades. These jackpots are triggered at any time randomly. Find out more about this is the rewarding features section below.
To begin with you have the ‘Jackpot Cards’ mystery bonus – this can be triggered randomly after any spin of the reels. You are required to select three cards from a selection of 12 laid face down on your screen. Match three of the same suit to win the corresponding progressive jackpot to the top of the reels.
Wild – the Scarab dice is the wild and will replace all symbols on the reels except the scatter, to help create winning paylines.
Scatter – the white dice is the scatter and 2 or more on the reels will award free spins and a multiplier amount.
Free spins – 15 free spins are provisionally awarded with a 3x multiplier. However, you can retrigger more free spins during the free spins mode.
The gamble feature allows you to gamble any base game win and is a simple ‘guess the colour suit’ game. If you predict correctly, you will double your initial win and you can continue to guess to win more – but guess incorrectly just the once and you will end up back on the reels with nothing.
We thoroughly enjoyed playing Dice of Ra and found it to be of medium variance. You may be spinning the reels a while before triggering the free spins, but unlike other online slot machines, you only need 2 scatter symbols opposed to 3. The free spins feature allowed for some healthy returns, especially when combined with the wild symbols.
We managed to the ‘Jackpot Cards’ mystery bonus numerous times, but were unsuccessful in our attempt at triggering one of the progressive jackpots. The progressive jackpot feature is just as exciting as the slot game itself and can erupt at any time. As you spin the reels, those four jackpots will continue to grow, which adds to the excitement.
