What is “Book of Ra” mobile slot about?
Book of Ra is a mobile slot from Greentube an international gaming developer which is part of the Novomatic company group. It is a 5 reel, 3 row slot offering only 9 paylines, but a wide betting range of 0.01 to 40 coins per line, for a maximum possible bet of 360 coins. Free spins can be won, and an expanding symbol bonus feature can be activated. The maximum fixed jackpot for this classic slot is 40000 coins, and it has been adapted to work smoothly on Android smartphones, iPhones, and tablets.
Look & Feel
Book of Ra is a classic vegas slot, and looks like one. Most of the play screen is taken up by the reels themselves, with little time wasted on background graphics beyond two massive columns flanking the reels and the silhouette of the pyramids lurking near the title banner. The reels themselves feature numbers and letters, as you would expect, alongside explorers, mummies, and artefacts. Animations are activated when a winning combination is achieved, with moving snakes and glinting telescopes.
Game and Winnings
This slot offers less by way of features and paylines than many other slots: the bonus game is minimalistic, and although it includes an expanding symbol and so a chance at a good payout, it does not offer the graphical features of newer slots. Additionally, with only 9 paylines, it offers fewer chances to win than many other video slot options. However, players have quite a lot of control over their bets in this slot: they can choose exactly how many paylines to activate up to the maximum of 9, and the wide betting range of 0.01 to 40 coins per line gives a lot of flexibility in betting choice.
The Book of Ra features in the slot as the scatter symbol on the reels. When this appears 3 or more times across the reels, 10 free spins are won. During these free spins, a random symbol is selected to become an expanding symbol: it will grow to cover the entire reel and increase the chance of a winning combination. If the Book of Ra scatter appears during this time, it will not substitute for the expanding symbol, but the free spin feature can be retriggered otherwise. Some players may find it frustrating that this slot is of fairly high variance: it may take some time for the bonus feature and the better payouts it offers to be activated.
The game features an autospin feature wherein the player can sit back and watch the animations whilst the reels spin for them a pre-set number of times. This feature can be disabled at any time.
