If you enjoyed the original Book of Ra or Book of Ra Deluxe, this game is a great continuing chapter in the excitement. It is also a fun new experience if you have played slots such as Anubix, Cleopatra’s Choice or Pharaoh’s Tomb. Book of Ra Deluxe 6 is especially thrilling because of the opportunity to win up to 750 million coins. There are 10 pay lines, five standard reels and three rows to give you plenty of ways to win. With this deluxe version, there is an optional sixth reel.
The graphics are crisp and clear, and the colour schemes help create the feeling that you are in an ancient pyramid. Bright symbols and letters set against a shadowy background add some mystery to the game. With the simple coding and setup of Novomatic Casino games, the features run smoothly with little to no freezing. The game is supported by most browsers.
The game starts with betting. You can choose between one and 10 bet lines, and you can bet between one and 50,000 coins per line. This means that the minimum bet per round is a single coin, and the maximum bet is 500,000 in standard play.
You can also make a deluxe bet by clicking the plus symbol on the line box once more when you reach 10. This activates the sixth reel, which increases the minimum bet to 20 coins and the maximum bet to 1 million coins per round. Once your bet is set, click the start button to spin the reels.
Click the paytable button to view a list of all symbols and values. You must spin between two and five high-value symbols on a pay line to win a coin reward. When the sixth reel is activated, you can also win an even larger coin reward. In regular mode, the explorer is worth between 500,000 and 250 million coins. He is worth 750 million for a multiple of six.
The scatter and wild are the same symbol, which is a book. In addition to triggering a bonus, you can win between 1 million and 100 million coins in regular mode or 200 million coins for six scatters. The other high-value symbols in this game will earn you between 250,000 and 250 million coins depending on the multiple spun and the character. These are the characters from top to bottom value:
There are low-value symbols, which are represented by numbers or letters corresponding with the top values of a standard deck of cards. You must spin three or more low-value symbols to win a coin reward. You can win between 250,000 and 37.5 million coins depending on the multiple and symbol spun. From highest to lowest value, the symbols are:
When you spin between three and six scatter symbols on a pay line, you win 10 free games. One random tile will turn into an expanding symbol on a whole reel, and it will remain that way for the entirety of the bonus round. This maximises your chance of a bigger win. If you spin three or more scatters during the bonus round, you win an additional 10 games.
As it is with other Novomatic slots such as Cash Farm and Cindereela, you have a bonus card game option whenever you spin a win on a pay line. In the bonus game, you predict the colour of a card. You can click the gamble button to risk your current win to double it.
For example, if you win 1,000 coins in regular mode, you can gamble it for the chance to win 2,000. If you win the 2,000 coins, you can risk that for the chance to win 4,000 coins if you guess the next card’s colour correctly.
If you want more control over the reels, simply click the autoplay button. This allows you to manually stop the reels faster if you want. If you do not click stop, the reels stop and start on their own indefinitely. There is no option for setting a win or loss maximum, and there is no option to set the reels to spin automatically for a specific number of rounds.
The game has fun background sounds that mix classic casino sounds with themed music. You can turn the sound off or on by clicking the speaker icon in the upper right corner. The arrow button next to the speaker allows you to speed up the reels. They will spin twice as fast if you click it. Click it a second time to return the reels to their normal speed. If you want to read more about the bonus reel and game features, click the info tab when you have the paytable open.
