Golden Ark is a fantastic online slot from Novomatic that deals with a theme that has been explored quite often by casino software providers: ancient Egypt. This is a game with excellent graphics and animations, superb sound effects, and is also easy to play. The game has 5 reels and 10 adjustable paylines. The minimum and maximum wagers per spin in this game are 1p and £40 respectively.
Golden Ark is another Novomatic slot with an Egyptian theme; the backdrop for the reels is a bright and sunny day with the pyramids to the right. The reels are arranged within a very ornate and decorative frame and the backdrop is a giant hieroglyphic and other symbols. The animations and graphics are of high quality in this slot. The symbols include a female explorer, different Egyptian gods like Ra, Anubis, a pharaoh-like persona with a sceptre, and the numbers 10, J, Q, K and A. The wild symbol in the game is the Book of the Dead, while the scatter is the Eye of Horus. The wild substitutes all other symbols except the scatter.
The main bonus feature in Golden Ark is the free spins bonus. You can activate this feature by landing 3 scatter symbols across the reels; you get 10 free spins. Just before the free spins start one of the symbols turn wild and stay wild throughout the free spins round. When you form a winning combination with this wild symbol during the free spins round it expands to cover the entire reel to give you a chance at bigger wins.
The Gamble feature appears at the end of each winning spin during the base game and gives you a chance to double your winnings. All you have to do is predict correctly the colour of the card that is dealt face-down. A wrong prediction makes you lose all your winnings from the spin.
