Ancient Egypt Themes Slots

Novomatic has long been inspired by ancient Egypt, it would seem. The Book of Ra covers not just one but three of their slot games – each developed from the one before it.

We’ve reviewed them all here for you. If you like the sound of them, start by playing the original, then move on to the rest. We’d recommend leaving Book of Ra 6 until last, since that has an interesting additional feature to watch out for. Are you ready to discover the book?

Book of Ra by Novomatic

This is the original game – the one that kickstarted the series. There are five reels here and just 10 paylines, making it a good choice for those with smaller budgets. We love the darkened background here, featuring hints of hieroglyphics on the walls.

This is a basic game too – you won’t find anything unusual in action here. The Book of Ra appears here as a scatter, and three or more bring 10 free games along for the ride. Before these begin, you’ll see a symbol chosen randomly to expand if it secures a winning line for you.

Book of Ra Deluxe by Novomatic

Would it surprise you to learn this game looks very like its predecessor? Don’t mess with a winning formula – that’s the logic here. It’s hard to deny that either, since we have 10 lines and five reels once again. You’ll see an explorer this time though.

The wild is the Book of Ra itself, replacing other symbols and securing a win on its own if you find enough of them. It is also the trigger for 10 free spins whenever three or more appear.

Book of Ra 6 by Novomatic

We know what you are thinking… what happened to the other numbers? Well, this isn’t numbered as the sixth game in the series. Instead, it comes with six reels. Again, the look is very similar, and we do get 10 lines across those six reels. The Book of Ra is used once again here as the scatter.

That sixth reel doesn’t automatically come into play; you need to activate the Extra Bet to make this happen. We’d recommend it, otherwise it’s much the same as the other games. If you get six identical symbols on a payline, it could be worth up to 30,000x your stake! And yes, there are free spins to be won here too.
