Novomatic’s next release is another ancient Egyptian themed video slot titled Ramses II. The game features 20 paylines, 5 reels and offers a top non-progressive jackpot of 2,500 coins. By non-progressive we mean that the jackpot stays the same (fixed) and it doesn’t belong to a progressive jackpot pool.
The game is playable on mobile phones and PC desktops from a mere 20 pence per spin up to £/€40. In my opinion Ramses II was ancient Egypt’s greatest pharaoh, under his reign not only did Egypt became an imperialistic Kingdom but a force to be reckoned with.
When I hear about Ramses II I think about the battle of Kadesh where the armies of ancient Egypt and the Hittites clashed. Although the ancient Egyptians claimed to have been victorious here it was a stalemate between the two great empires of the time. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Kadesh).
This slots pays homage to one of ancient history’s great men namely Ramses II. It’s main selling point to players is its free spins feature that awards up to 30 free spins with tripled wins (multipliers 3x) and doubled wild wins. The graphics and animations could best be described as basic and cartoon like at that.
Paying symbols that appear on the reels are cards from 9 to Ace, pyramids, Great Sphinx of Giza, Horus (falcon headed god), Bastet (cat goddess), camels and scarab beetle (scatter). The symbol that pays the top cash prize is none other than Ramses II, 5 of them at the maximum wager on an active payline pays 2,500 coins or 100x your bet. Ramses II also has a SuperGame feature that’s played just after the free spins mode.
The game offers an average return payout percentage (RTP) of 96% to the player where the biggest wins occur during the free spins.
The audio of the slots is pretty standard while a series of customization options such as graphics settings, Max Bet button, Auto Play and coin range are at your disposal-they make the game more convenient for you.
The free spins feature is triggered by the scarab scatter when 3 or more of them appear on the reels-15 free spins are awarded. When 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters appear payouts range from 2x your stake up to 110x. Wins during the free spins are boosted by multipliers of 3x (tripled wins).
Upon conclusion of the free spins feature the SuperGame bonus mode is played. SuperGame values are offered when you hit 3 or more wilds, scatters and for 5 of a kind winning combinations for the symbols with high value. In turn all high value symbols are used on the wheel where cash prizes can be won. This bonus game is a nice addition and really gives your bankroll a shot in the arm.
Ramses II is a pretty ordinary Novomatic slots that comes with a quality re-triggerable free spins mode where up to 30 free spins with tripled wins (multiplier of 3x) can be won. The SuperGame feature further boosts wins making the slots relatively easy on the pocket.
I think it’s safe to say that the game will blow hot and cold for some. If you’re looking for a slots with the same theme but with way more spunk we highly recommend Book of Ra Deluxe by the same developer. (https://casinowhizz.com/slots/book-ra-deluxe-6-slots-review-bonus/)
