This game, created by gaming giant Novomatic industries, is the sequel to the already popular “Book of Ra”. Updated with better graphics and animations, Book of Ra Deluxe is also equipped with 5 reels and 10 pay lines, unlike its predecessor, which was only equipped with 9 pay lines.
Adding to the fact that new sounds and music were also added, this machine is very different from its original counterpart – but in a good way. The standard jackpot for the game is 500 coins, which is not much, however, the game caters to all types of players with varied bankrolls due to the fact the game has a low level minimum initial wager.
The main feature of the game consists of its Bonus game. This feature is activated by getting 3 or more Book of Ra symbols, and the player will receive 10 free spins with 2x multiplier per spin.
In this bonus game, before starting the free spins, a random symbol is chosen; this is called an “expanding symbol”. This symbol will last the duration of the free spins, and if appears it will expand to up to 3 reel positions, giving the player a huge potential for extra winnings. Extra spins can also be awarded if the player receives more Book of Ra symbols.
Book of Ra deluxe is one of the most frequented slot machines in land casinos, which is a prime example of how a relatively simple, but very well designed machine can make a difference in attracting players of all types.
