Book of Ra Temple of Gold slot review
Book of Ra Temple of Gold slot by Novomatic is yet another incarnation of this title and not only that, a mechanic that has been copied over 100 times by numerous developers. We have the same old Egyptian theme, same old wheedle-and-trot sounds but in the interests of equality the explorer is now a blonde female! This latest edition stands alongside the original Book of Ra, the subsequent Book of Ra Deluxe with the 10th. payline added, then Book of Ra Deluxe 6 with the extra reel added and finally Book of Ra Magic with the extra symbol selection for each retrigger. Phew! So will this version be Temple of Gold or temple of doom for our bankroll?
On The Reels...
We get the same old 10 pay lines over 5 reels of 3 rows each on Book of Ra Temple of Gold slot and as said the Lady Explorer is the top pay which like all other symbols appears singly and pays 500x for 5-of-a-kind. The Book Wild also pays 500x if there's 5 on a line, otherwise 200x if 5 are scattered, then we have the Priest at 200x, Gold Statue or Disc at 75x with five card values paying 15x for A or K and 10 for Q, J and 10. As usual 3 or more Wild Book scatters trigger our free games.
So you get 10 of these for however many scatters triger them. Now comes the difference between this and the Deluxe version. It's a bit like the Magic version but instead of needing a retrigger for the next symbol, here you begin right from the off with up to 3 symbols acting as expanding scatters. Any retriggers retain exactly the same symbols and of course you can get more than one win on the same spin. So essentially the feature is more volatile and even harder to trigger than on the Deluxe version.
Well Novomatic certainly know how to flog a winning formula to death with Book of Ra Temple of Gold slot, it's almost like the Megaways mechanic for the sheer number of variants and games. The RTP is a shade over 95% and of course it's a very volatile slot with only about half of the RTP in the base game so can drain your balance fast if no features occur. The theme is same old, same old but if you like this Ra series then you'll like this game just as much. It's about time our intrepid explorer found a girlfriend...Review by Gamingslots
