Slot Review Online of Book of Ra Deluxe 6 by Novomatic
Book of Ra Deluxe 6 online slot was created by Novomatic developer Greentube. It has 5 reels with 3 symbols on each, you can choose to play with up to 10 paylines and play for free at NeonSlots. If you wish to activate the 6th reel your total bet doubles but you as you will be able to land combos of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 symbols, this can increase your payouts significantly. The Book of Ra is the scatter symbol which launches 10 free games and there is an expanding symbol and a double up round. NeonSlots provides all the games in the Book of Ra series, including Book of Ra Classic and Book of Ra Deluxe, in their demo free to play online mode.
The Book of Ra is the Scatter symbol and if 3 or more land anywhere on the reels, the round of 10 free spins is launched. The pages of the Book of Ra turn automatically to reveal a randomly selected symbol that becomes the special expanding symbol. If the minimum number of these symbols (2 or 3) land on the reels then each symbol will expand to cover all 3 positions on the reel. The multipliers will be the same as during regular spins, however when 2 or more reels are filled with these special symbols, the chances of landing payouts are much greater. During the free games all payouts of regular symbols use the same bet and line settings that were in place before the free games round was triggered. The special symbols are counted regardless of their position on the reels and the expanding symbol cannot be substituted by a scatter symbol. If three more scatter symbols land during the free games session you will win another round of Free Games.
Book of Ra Deluxe 6 Symbols
A combination is considered winning when identical symbols line up along an active payline, from left to right, starting with the leftmost reel and only the highest win per line will be paid. This slot uses the familiar Book of Ra symbols including the Book of Ra, an Archeologist, a Pharaoh´s statue, a Goddess Idol and a Scarab beetle. It also features playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A. All the multipliers are listed in the paytable and are applied to the bet per line.
Extra Bet Feature
The Extra Bet Feature will add a 6th reel to the screen which will allow you to create longer winning combinations with higher multipliers. The cost of this feature is double your total bet amount and to activate it you can either click on the button directly above the reel or increase the number of paylines from 10 to 10+.
The Scatter symbol of this Gaminator online slot by Novomatic is the Book of Ra and its multipliers apply to the total bet, not the bet per line. To create a winning combination the symbols can land anywhere on the screen and the Scatter can be used as a substitute for all other symbols to complete or extend existing combos. 3 or more Scatter symbols will also award you with 10 free games with a special expanding symbol, which cannot be substituted by a Scatter symbol.
