Book of Ra Deluxe is an iconic video slot released by Novomatic in 2008 which is optimised for mobile play. It is a sequel to the pokie of the same title with improvements in its appearance and features. Themed on Egypt and archaeology, the slot machine is one of the most popular games in land based casinos across Europe, but it is also among favourite ones all over the world.

It features transparent reels set inside the pyramid with hieroglyphs seen in the backdrop. Graphics and animations look way better than in the first version of the game, while sounds are just as if you play the land-based slot machine - not very inventive, but real pokie aficionados will appreciate it.

Book of Ra Deluxe Gameplay

The upgraded version of the game features 5 reels and 10 paylines instead of 9. Before you press the Spin button on the right side of the screen, enter the menu to adjust your bet by activating up to 10 paying lines, which is the preferred setting for the best odds of winning, and choose a bet per line you want to wager. The bet per line varies from AU$0.01 up to AU$5, which makes the game playable from only AU$0.10 up to AU$50 per spin.

Within the Menu you can also use the Max Bet button and turn sound effects and music on or off according to your preferences. Sound effects can strike you as a bit odd if you haven't play Novomatic games before, so you may consider turning them off. Instead of spinning the reels manually, use the Autospin option and activate automatic spins by pressing the Spin button until it goes blue. To win a prize you need to land at least three symbols of a kind in succession along an active paying line.

Bonus Features

The Book of Ra symbol stands for Wild and Scatter, which means that it substitutes for all other symbols thus helping you complete more winning combinations. Whenever you land at least 3 Book of Ra symbols anywhere on the reels, you will trigger the free spin feature during which one of the regular symbols will be converted into an expanding scatter symbol. This symbol is randomly chosen at the beginning of the feature and it will expand only to create a winning combination.

The free spins feature can be retriggered and you can win some huge payouts during it due to the expanding symbol which pays as a regular one but it pays even when it lands on the reels which are not adjacent. After each win you can use the Gamble option on the right side of the screen to gamble your payout and try to double it by guessing the colour of a hidden card. It is recommended that you act reasonably while using this option and you can use the Collect button instead.

Symbols & Payouts

High paying symbols are related to the theme so you'll see the explorer looking like Indiana Jones, the Tutankhamen bust, the Horus statue and the scarab beetle. Playing card symbols award low payouts. The most valuable symbol is the explorer and it awards 5,000 for landing five of a kind on an active paying line. Land five Wild/Scatter anywhere on the reels and you will win 2,000 coins. The theoretical RTP for Book of Ra Deluxe is 94.26% which is 3% higher than the original version.

Book of Ra Deluxe on Mobile

Book of Ra Deluxe is fully optimised for mobile play, so you can take this exciting game wherever you go. Thanks to its quite plain visuals, it performs smoothly on smartphones and tablets and it looks great on smaller screens. With a user-friendly menu and controls, it allows you to adjust all settings without difficulty. You can enjoy all its bonus features while playing on the move.

Summary

If you are in doubt whether to play the original version of the game or its sequel, we recommend playing the latter because of its highly rewarding bonus features which can significantly boost your winning chances. Look out for Wild/Scatter and the explorer symbol as these symbols are responsible for the biggest payouts throughout the game. If you love old-fashioned pokies, this one might be just a perfect fit for you.
