Riches of Ra
Riches of Ra by Play’n Go
There can be no denying the fact that Egyptian themed slots have stood the test of time like few others, with virtually every developer in the world having a couple of entries in the genre. We’re not even sure what players and developers alike love about the theme so much, but it is fair to say that it has been responsible for some of the best games ever made, most notably Cleopatra from IGT. This isn’t the first foray into the theme for Play’n Go that we have added here at Games Mania either, with many of our players having checked out Book of Dead previously, but this one is a little different. That said, it feels so different because it actually looks a lot more standard than the games to have come before!
Fifteen Lines and some Great Features
The base game action is about as conventional as it gets, with players looking to land as many of the themed symbols and playing card icons as possible with the use of fifteen win lines. There is one similarity between this game and Book of Dead in that the Egyptian god wild card symbol is the wild card and also the scatter that triggers free spins – although in this case it is unable to fill in for the urn, which leads to a bonus game of its own.
Indeed, we’ll start off the feature coverage with that urn, which will trigger a pick a win bonus whenever three of them land in view at the same time. Each of the urns becomes clickable and players can choose one to reveal an instant cash prize, which can be worth up to 150 times their total stake.
The main event is the aforementioned free spins round and this will come into play through the use of stacked wilds. That’s right, rather than simply landing three of the wild scatters, you’ll need to land a full stack of them on reels one and five at the same time, which is actually a bit trickier to do. The reward for doing so is fifteen free spins, and they are better than the base game because any wild stacks will remain in place as soon as they land. If your luck is really in, you could have a fully wild board before the round is over and can make use of it multiple times for absolutely incredible returns.
Many of the best Egyptian themed slots are pretty simple affairs and that is definitely something that can be said of Riches of Ra. It is unlikely to knock the likes of Cleopatra and Queen of the Nile 2 off their perches, but is still another solid offering from Play’n Go.
