Book of Ra

When you want to start discussing something about the vastly-famous slot machine Book of Ra, predecessor to many games, veteran of the industry and also teaching guide to many gamblers, there is not much novelty you can bring about. This is owing to the fact that it is so widely-spread and played, popular and satisfying, that it is unlikely you could find a gambling games’ enthusiast that does not already know it all about it. In other words, this game is an example of something that did (and still does) so well that it needs no introduction.

In any case, the simplicity and user-friendliness have brought this title far. As mentioned above, it can serve as a great stepping stone into this particular type of gaming. Why? Due to the fact that it is so self-explanatory (as a classic 5-reel, 9-payline game) that it will have absolutely no issue in teaching newbies how things work with slots.

The visuals and sounds might not be state-of-the-art, but they do not even need to, not in the slightest. Book of Ra keeps it old-school without any trace of loss in doing so; it is already a perfect recipe. And speaking of visuals, the symbols to play with here are the mystifying Ancient Egypt icons: scarabs, the explorer, golden pharaoh’s mask and the book of Ra (the SCATTER/WILD icon, i.e. that one able to replace any other symbol and trigger the free spins), among the general card numbers and letters normally seen around.

And so, we arrive at the features - no complications, the good ol’ free spins (complete with the randomly-assigned symbol that will afterwards “dance” around your screen, trying to increase your winnings, depending on what icon it actually is) are all that is needed so that, in the end, any gambler - old or new to gambling, first-time player of this particular game or a loyal returner - can play this slot effectively and be entertained properly!
