There are a number of online slots themed on ancient Egypt or adventures related to Egypt and one of the most popular is Novomatic's Book of Ra Deluxe. The slot is about an adventurer who reaches Egypt in search of the precious Book of Ra. The game has 5 reels and 10 paylines and you can play a maximum of 1 coin per line. The coin size ranges between 0.05 and 10, giving you a bet range of a minimum wager of 50p and a maximum wager of £100.
The first thing that strikes you about Book of Ra Deluxe is the stunning quality in terms of visual and game features. The background on which the symbols appear within the reels is full of hieroglyphics and above and beyond it is depicted a sunset against the pyramids. The symbols in the game include the explorer, a statue, a scarab beetle, and a sarcophagus. The lower value symbols are the number 10, J, Q, K and A from a regular 52-card deck. The wild symbol is the Book of Ra; it is also the scatter symbol. The Book of Ra wild substitutes all symbols for a win.
The main bonus feature in Book of Ra Deluxe is the free spins bonus. You can trigger this feature by landing 3 or more Book of Ra symbols across the reels. You get 10 free spins when this happens; additionally, one of the symbols from the game turns wild randomly at the beginning of the free spins bonus and stays wild till the end to help you put together sizeable wins. There is also the Gamble feature that appears after each win. You can use this feature to double your win amount: on a fresh screen you get a card dealt face-down; pick the colour of the card from the 2 options given: red or black. Picking the right colour doubles your win and picking the wrong one ends the round with you losing your winnings from that spin.
