There are a number of iconic slot games from each of the world’s top casino software providers, you have Rainbow Riches from Barcrest, Gonzos Quest and Starburst from Net Entertainment, and of course you have Book of Ra from one of the world biggest slot companies in Novomatic.
Over the years since Online Gambling became mainstream every game provider has been trying to create the next big slot game with a unique theme or angle. With Book of Ra Novomatic have stuck gold. It is a household name in Germany, and extremely popular across Europe too.
What is the Book of Ra?
Well First things first, Ra* is the ancient Egyptian sun god, so as you would expect the aim of the game for our intrepid explorer to uncover the Pharaoh's Treasure. If you are a fan Egyptian themed games like the classic Cleopatra from IGT, you will love definitely enjoy Book of Ra.
The most popular variation is Book of Ra deluxe, this is a 5 reel 10 pay line video slot significantly improved from the older and original Book of Ra. The most enjoyable aspect of the game in my opinion is the Book of Ra Free Spins Bonus feature, this is triggered by 3 or more Book of Ra Scatter Symbols across any of the 5 reels. This will trigger a 10 free spins bonus round along with a 2x win multiplier bonus.
In addition to the free spins bonus you will also have a special expanding symbol which when hit will expand to cover that particular reel, this can result in significant winnings so look out for that.
One you are in the bonus game you can also add additional batches of free spins by hitting any 3 or more scatter symbols.
As with any successful slot game franchise we have seen several additional versions of Book of Ra appear in slot form, however you can also find Ra Roulette and Scratchcards too.
