In the last series of its Gaminators, Novomatic has decided to update one of the most popular slots - Book of Ra. The graphics have become better while the gameplay has got more exciting. The updated Book of Ra Deluxe slot (Books) features 5 reels, 10 lines, a risk game and free spins with a special symbol from the Book of Ra.
How to play Book of Ra Deluxe online slot
The number of credits available for a gambler is displayed in the lower left corner of the screen. If you play for free, in the beginning you will automatically get 1 000 credits. There are two buttons "plus" and "minus" under the "lines" sign. They are used to set the number of active lines for a game, ranging from 1 to 10. In this Deluxe version the number of lines differs from its predecessor - Book of Ra slot, which features only 9 lines. To the right there are the same buttons below the "bet/line" sign for setting the bet amount for each line. The minimum bet is 1 credit and the maximum bet is 100 credits.
In the lower right corner there are two buttons for starting the slot machine. If you want to play only one round with chosen bet parameters, press the button «start». If you want the reels to spin automatically while refusing to participate in the risk game, then press the button «Autoplay». To adjust the sound level, use small buttons located at the top right corner. A combination is considered to be winning only if it begins on the leftmost reel and goes on to the right. A button labeled «Paytable» on a blue background is used to review rules and a table of multipliers used to calculate wins.
Symbols and multipliers
This online slot machine features the same image for the "wild" and the scatter symbol - the Book of Ra. It can replace all other symbols to complete a winning combination. Combinations of these books are formed regardless of their place on the playing field. The win amount for a combination with the Book of Ra symbols is calculated by multiplying a total sum of bet by a multiplier of 2, 20 or 200 for 3, 4 or 5 books on the screen.
The least valuable symbols are the card symbols which can make sequences of only 3, 4 or 5 of identical images. For "Ten", "J" and "Q" the multipliers of 5, 25 and 100 are given. An ace and a king marked by the letters "A" and "K" have the multipliers of 5, 40 and 150. All other images can make sequences of 2, 3, 4, 5 identical pictures. A blue scarab beetle and a statue of a winged Egyptian idol bring multipliers of 5, 30, 100 and 750. A Pharaoh sarcophagus brings 5, 40, 400 and 2 000 credits for each credit you bet. A portrait of a courageous archaeologist who went in search of ancient treasures has the greatest value - 10, 100, 1 000 and 5 000 credits for each credit bet. But even more credits can be gained on Alcatraz slot machine, since it has the maximum payout of 10 000 credits.
You get the right to play a risk game after hitting a winning combination. Press the «Gamble» button to start the risk game or the «Collect» button to refuse it and get the reward to your account. If you take the risk, you will see a shimmering deck of cards and you will have to guess the suit of the next card. The last five cards are displayed to help you with the choice. The choice is made by pressing the «Red» or «Black» buttons. But keep in mind that if you make a mistake, your prize from the standard game will be lost. And in the case of success your reward will double. You can refuse the risk game at any time just pressing the «Collect» button.
Free games with a symbol from the Book of Ra
On the Book of Ra Deluxe slot machine free games start if you get at least three scatter symbols - Book of Ra on the screen. In this case 10 spins are given. But before they start, the Book opens on a random page. An image on it is an "expanding symbol". This means that after calculation of reward from combinations according to the usual rules, the "expanding symbol" can take up to three positions on the reel creating a new winning combination. But it’s possible only in those cases, when there are enough of these icons on the screen for creating new combinations. The "expanding symbol" cannot be replaced by a "wild" symbol. During the free spins you can get 10 more spins.
