Book of Ra Deluxe Slot Review
Book of Ra Deluxe by Novomatic is the worthy successor to arguably the company’s best slot of all time, the original Book of Ra. Here at Mr Gamez we are all about bringing as much fun as possible to slots fans, so naturally you can enjoy both the original and Deluxe versions of Book of Ra in full here on the site. (And now you can also play the slot machine with the Book of Ra Deluxe app now on your smartphone)
When a world renowned classic slot spawns a sequel, players generally know what to expect. The graphics that they know and love remain intact but are touched up to bring them up to speed with modern games. This is the case on Book of Ra Deluxe, making its graphics something extra special as the graphics of the original already stood the test of time. The sequel also sees a number of modifications to the gameplay that make it sufficiently different to its predecessor to allow both to be enjoyed by different parts of the Novomatic player base. While we will cover specifics developments in the gameplay later in the review, players can expect a few changes in line with how online slots developed between the releases of the two games, with Book of Ra Deluxe offering more standard slot features than the classic version.
Book of Ra Deluxe Theme
Book of Ra Deluxe revisits the exploration of Ancient Egypt theme made popular by the original game. The Indiana Jones type explorer makes a return to the reels, as do the Scarab Beetle, Sarcophagus and, of course, the Book of Ra symbols. This time around, they have been updated to offer crisp and clean high definition graphics, together with a few animations that are certainly new additions to the game.
The overall feel of the game is also perhaps more in line with the idea of exploring ancient tombs as the whole screen takes on something of a darker quality, giving the impression that the player actually is deep in the recesses of a long sealed pyramid. This new atmosphere is completed by the fact that the symbols are set against a backdrop of a hieroglyphic inscribed wall.
Gameplay and Prizes
Even players that are already card carrying members of the Book of Ra fan club should read up on the gameplay of Book of Ra Deluxe as it is undoubtedly the biggest and most noticeable change from the original title. In simple terms, the most striking modifications are that the jackpot has been cut in half – it is still 5,000 coins but this now represents a maximum of $50,000 owing to the new staking mechanisms – and players can now enjoy ten win lines in total rather than the previous five.
Otherwise, players can still adjust their coin bets and coin values to their heart’s content, with a range of options for players of all experience levels and staking plans. The typical autoplay and Gamble features also make a return from the original, giving players a wealth of options as to how they want to make the game as profitable as possible.
Features and Bonuses
As with the original game, the Book of Ra itself is a pivotal symbol when watching the action unfold. It pulls a double shift by acting as both a regular wild card symbol and as the game’s scatter. In practice, this means that it can fill in for the vast majority of prize symbols, regardless of their value, with three or more Book of Ra symbols on a single spin taking players to the free spins bonus game. Players are awarded ten free spins regardless of the number of scatters in view and can often accumulate huge prize amounts, due in no small part to the addition of an expanding wild card to the bonus reels.
Book of Ra Deluxe is often mentioned in the same breath as the previous iteration of the game, due to the fact that both can be considered as bona fide Novomatic slot classics. You can enjoy both games, together with an extensive Novomatic range for free here at Mr Gamez.
