Where to play?
Book of Ra Magic has 10 paylines, 5 reels, it’s an ancient Egyptian themed high variance Novomatic video slot that offers a non-progressive jackpot of 5,000x your stake on a single spin. Its main bonus mode is a free spins feature that awards 10 free spins with an expanding symbol. When 9 special expanding symbols appear on your screen during the free spins, you’ll win the top cash prize (5,000x your stake).
The game looks identical to the Book of Ra Deluxe, it’s about an archaeologist searching for lost treasure among the tombs. Symbols that appear on the reels are the archaeologist, let’s just call him Indie for now, scarab beetles, sarcophagus, cards from 10 to Ace, Isis and Book of Ra (wild and scatter). Indiana (archaeologist) is the most valuable symbol, 5 of them at the maximum wager pays 2,500 coins.
Book of Ra Magic has an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.03%. The RTP tells us that the game is tight so don’t expect a payout on every spin. We experienced as much as 10 dry spins at an average bet of £0.80 per spin.
With 10 adjustable paylines the smallest bet is £0.10 up to £100 per spin. We recommend that you play with all 10 paylines activated. The game can be played on mobile devices (Androids, iOS, tablets) and computer desktops (Apple or Windows).
The wild and the scatter is the Book of Ra, winning combinations are completed when it substitutes symbols adjacent to it. Hit 3, 4 or 5 of them on a payline you’ll pocket anything from 2x to 200x your stake.
The free spins feature is played when 3, 4 or 5 Book of Ra scatters appear any position on the reels during the main game – 10 free spins with a randomly selected expanding symbol is awarded. The expanding symbol expands to cover 3 positions on the reels. Every time the free spins feature is triggered (when 3 or more scatters appear) another expanding symbol will be chosen plus you’ll get an extra 10 free spins! If you’re lucky enough to hit 9 expanding symbols you’ll receive a payout worthy of a pharaoh!
Payouts during the base for a lack of a better word is lousy! However, if you stick around and have the money to burn it’s definitely worth it to trigger the free spins. Here’s why. If you’re lucky enough to get the archaeologist as the expanding symbol (most valuable) during the free spins, it expands by covering 5 reels offering a substantial win of 5,000x your stake.
It’s not a bad game but it can be frustrating at times because payouts are far and few in between. The volatility is steep and it will cut through small bankrolls like a chainsaw through wood.
