What is “Book of Ra Deluxe” mobile slot about?
Greentube, a leading games developer and part of the Novomatic group, has updated the classic Book of Ra slot to create Book of Ra Deluxe, a mobile game for Android, iPhone, and tablet computers. The main difference when compared to the older version is the addition of a payline, for a total of 10 paylines across 5 reels with 3 rows. The betting range is 0.04 to 10 coins per line, or a total maximum bet of 100 coins. The total possible fixed jackpot for this game is 500,000 coins, and it includes free spins and an expanding scatter.
Look & Feel
Book of Ra has had a graphics update for the deluxe version: the overall images are smoother and sleeker. The numbers and letters feature in a more artistic script, the pyramid silhouettes are more artistic and less blocky, and the giant pillars at the side of the reels are less stark. The symbols have also had a makeover: although the same images appear, hey are now smoother, and in a different style. The overall effect is that this is clearly a deluxe version of the older product.
Game and Winnings
Book of Ra Deluxe features one more payline than the older version, meaning a total of 10 are available: this is still substantially lower than many other video slots. The deluxe version retains the betting flexibility of the original: players can choose precisely how many paylines to activate, and have a wide range of line bet options to select from.
Betting ranges from 0.04 to 10 coins, meaning that the maximum bet for the game is 100 coins on any one spin. This is a middle of the range maximum bet: some slots offer higher maximum bets, some lower, meaning that the game should appeal to players with a wide range of slot experience, from both casual gamers to serious gamblers.
The Book of Ra itself is the scatter in this game and when it appears 3 or more times across the reels, 10 free spins will begin. A symbol other than the scatter will be randomly selected to become an expanding symbol for the duration. The expanding symbol can grow to take up an entire reel, and so increase the possibility of a winning combination. The scatter symbol, which can reactivate free spins during this time, cannot replace the expanding symbol.
When a win is achieved, the player can select the “Gamble” option from the betting bar and activate a double or nothing card game where they must select either the correct colour or correct suit of a randomly selected card. This provides the opportunity to make smaller wins grow, and the sidegame adds a feature to gameplay.
