The Book of Ra has been the subject of various stories, films and video slots over the years. Novomatic has had so much success with this version that it has spawned a deluxe game, but many believe this one is still better. We’ve given it a whirl to see if that is the case.

Book of Ra Classic Theme

Don't let the word classic fool you because this slot is fairly modern in aesthetic terms. The reels are contained between two looming arches and the logo appears above the reels.

Reel icons are a mixture between bespoke and traditional icons. These include an explorer, scarab beetles, mummies entombed within a sarcophagus and the Book of Ra. Traditional icons span from 10 through to A.

Betting Options and More Functions

The slot uses a five reel and five payline format which is why it's called a classic slot. You are required to use a single coin per payline which will range from 0.08 to £/€/$20 in value. This allows players to gamble between 0.40 and £/€/$100 per spin.

Book of Ra classic slot Features

The 3 dimensional Book of Ra icon is capable of substituting for any other icon except the special hieroglyphics. Three, four or five of these icons will also unlock ten free spins where the special icons can also transform into additional wilds.

The special icons are particularly handy because they appear after other wins have been paid. This means potential double prizes which is far better than other slots which offer either regular prizes or bonus ones; seldom do both appear on a slot during a single feature.

Our Take on classic Book of Ra

When you stack up the statistics it’s safe to say that this version of Book of Ra has plenty to brag about. There’s free games, scatters and wilds and a gargantuan $100,000 maximum jackpot which is double the size of the Deluxe slot.

Some people might think five lines is too few; for those people the deluxe version would be more suitable. Play them both and make your own mind up using the free deals below.

    Another classic from Novo, not as good as the deluxe version in my opinion, but just as much potential!

    Book of ra is a 9payline slot(can be 10paylines in newer version) based on an explorer in Ancient Egypt. It was probably the pioneer of scattered symbols expanding into a full screen. What I mean by this is when you get the free spins you get a special expanding symbol any symbol except book can be the special symbol payouts range but I think the top pay on a 0.09 is 450.00(full screen of wild cards) The paytable is good but the feature is very difficult to get making it no competition to Dead or Alive or Break Da bank again in my view. You get all the typical Egyptian symbols in the slot including wild explorer(Indiana Jones looking), Tomb of Tutankhamun and Scarab beetle other symbols include classic 9-A alphanumeric. It's a fun game and has great potential but be wary as it can eat your money really quickly. I give Book of Ra 9line version 3.5/5 Bigdk1888

    Also Novomatic slots are so popular in my country! I played Book of Ra often, but never had a chance to win big. Also online i played just on Stargames casino where i have just one time a good payout from this. The simple layout makes this game wonderful! Good luck all!

    Very good game. I never had the patience to play Novomatic Slots before, but now I have come to like them, and just put up with the way you have to hit the collect button to get your money. I put up with it because I like them, and after a while I see it as just part of the way this slot is it does not take away from the game because the game is good. I have not played this slot a lot, I did not really have any wins, but after playing it lately I have come to find what a great payout it can give you. Like the colors and the free spins are excellent.

    Well, super popular in Germany, which is absurd since there are so many better slots. But overall everyone plays it to get a big hit and then they wonder how fast this slots eats your money. I think people are bewitched by youtube videos and screenshots when it comes to this slot. But I can't deny that is is an exciting and fun slot.
