Book Of Ra 6 Reel Pokie Review
This is a six reel version of what we must now refer to as the ‘Classic’ version of the game, and retains a lot of familiar icons along with the playability of its predecessors. Ten pay lines feature in this version of the game, and of course that extra reel offers a new location for that all important bonus symbol.
All your favourite symbols from the older Book of Ra pokies make a comeback in this version of the game, so you can expect the explorer, the scarab, the golden death mask and the winged statue to make a re-appearance.
About The Game
Coins Range:0.01 - 5.00
Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:15
Free Spins: When three or more Book icons appear on any of the reels then 10 free spins are released. When you enter the free spins section of gameplay, the Book of Ra opens upon a random symbol which becomes the new bonus symbol.
Bonus Symbol: The titular Book of Ra is the most important symbol in the game, as apart from unlocking Free Spins it also functions as the wild symbol in this game, and within its pages lies the key to unlocking big rewards.
The same Book of Ra icon is used as the Scatter Symbol for this pokie, as described in the Free Spins section above.
When the book selects a random symbol to become the new bonus symbol, this new image expands across the entire reel when it appears during the free spins, and it pays out no matter where on screen it shows up.
This bonus feature also appeared in the Deluxe version of the game and it is back again here, presumably acting upon the maxim that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Extra Bet: The Extra Bet feature is exclusive to the Book of Ra 6 game, and it is used as a way to introduce the sixth reel into the game. Reel six is deactivated when you begin the game, but by clicking the Extra Bet button, you bring it into play.
The same rules apply as with five reels, except the extra reel holds out the promise of extra ways to win and to locate those bonus symbols.
Gamble Feature: As with many Novomatic pokies, you will be offered the chance to double your money by availing of the gamble feature. A 100% increase of your winnings at the click of a button is a pretty tempting offer, but there is that considerable downside in that you could just as easily lose all of your hard won gains.
The Book of Ra series is the jewel in the crown of Novomatic’s pokie offerings, and this latest version looks to capitalize on the huge popularity of its predecessors.
Fans of the Classic and Deluxe editions will not be disappointed by the new version of the game, which may also attract new players intrigued by the unusual six reel feature.
If you have played the deluxe edition of the Book of Ra then there will be few surprises to be found in this incarnation of the title, but the Book of Ra Deluxe 6 edition looks set to cash in on the success of this franchise.
