Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes is new from Novomatic. Well, the slot is new but the theme isn’t! Book of Ra (Classic) is one of Novomatic’s all time favourites. Since that slot was first released, players have enjoyed spinning its reels! Over the years, Novomatic have made many different versions of this video slot. There’s Book of Ra 6, Book of Ra Deluxe, Book of Ra Deluxe 6, Book of Ra Deluxe Jackpot Edition and now Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes! All of the slots in this group are based on the same theme and have the same symbols and main character. They’re all set in ancient Egypt. Ancient Egypt is a civilisation that has captivated imagination for generations. Ever since Hollywood started making movies, this has been a popular setting for blockbusters. Just think about Cleopatra and how people are still talking about her today! The Egyptians worshipped many gods, wrote in hieroglyphics and built pyramids. Pharaohs loved gold and jewels and were buried with their most prized possessions.
All of this culture and decadence can be seen in Novomatic’s Book of Ra slots. Especially in Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes. This jackpot slot has not one, not two, not three, but four different jackpots that you can win! Unlike Book of Ra 6, this jackpot slot has only 5 reels. There are 10 paylines in this game and you can win Free Spins which have the same bonus feature as the original game. That’s right, the special expanding symbol is back and it’s better than ever! Since the first slot in this group was made many years ago, you’ll really see the difference in the graphics! This brand-new slot from Novomatic shows ancient Egypt in HD!
Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes might be new at the Novomatic casino but it sticks to tradition. The same symbols that were on Book of Ra (Classic) can be found on these reels, too. The only difference is that the symbols in this game have been given a lovely upgrade. 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace are the card symbols. These are wonderfully designed in a font that looks like it would certainly fit in in ancient Egypt. The King and the Ace pay more than the other three card symbols. Then, you’ll find the Scarab beetle and the Isis statue. Both of these are made from gold and jewels and would certainly not look out of place buried with any important Pharaoh. The Pharaoh’s mask pays more than both of these symbols. Elaborate death masks were made for the mummies of only the most important people in ancient Egypt, including Pharaohs. This particular mask is incredibly intricate and dazzling. It’s covered in gold, too! This symbol pays the same amount as the Book of Ra scatter symbol. The symbol which pays the biggest wins in this slot game is the architect. This handsome man is the main character and he features in all of these games in this group of video slots from Novomatic. He’s wearing his traditional outfit, complete with a shirt, a waistcoat, a hat and his trusty rope.
This slot pays out wins when you spin the reels and land enough matching symbols in the right positions. All slot games work this way! In Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes, there are 10 paylines. The card symbols and the scatter symbol need at least 3 matches for a minimum payout. The other symbols (the scarab beetle, the Isis statue, the Pharaoh’s mask and the architect) need only two or more matches to pay out. All matching symbols must line up consecutively on a payline, from the left, to award the win. The only exception is the scatter symbol (the Book of Ra) and this will pay from any position with three or more matches. This symbol is also the Wild symbol and can substitute any other symbol when it’s in a position to complete the win.
Not only does the scatter symbol award payouts and make substitutions but it also gives free games! When you get 3, 4 or 5 Book of Ra symbols in the same spin, you will be rewarded with 10 free games. These come with the classic special expanding symbol bonus feature, like the other slot games in this ancient Egyptian series. This extra extraordinary scatter symbol may also trigger the jackpot feature! If you’re lucky enough for this to happen, your screen will be filled with many golden coins! Each of the four jackpots (the mini, the minor, the major and the grand jackpots) have their own particular colour. When you start choosing coins, they will each reveal a gem of a particular colour. If you manage to pick three golden coins which reveal the same colour gem, the corresponding jackpot will be paid! Three is the magic number, after all!
