Riches of Ra is an Egyptian themed slot, developed by Play’n Go. It has 5 reels and 15 paylines, with bets starting from just 1p per payline. Featuring a selection of Ancient Egyptian goodies, as well as the falcon-headed god of the sun himself, Riches of Ra also has some special bonus features waiting to be triggered with a lucky landing.
If you’re not familiar with Ra, he can be identified by his falcon-head and a sun symbol inside a cobra on top of it. Set upon a background of Egyptian pyramids amid a glowing sunset, Riches of Ra gives us a real taste of Egypt in a bright and colourful slot. From Pharaohs to scarabs, we’ve got the usual suspects you tend to find in the Ancient Egyptian themed slots. The difference is all in the bonus features, which we will come to in a moment.
Place Your Bet
It is up to you how you choose to build your bet.
There are a total of 15 paylines which should automatically be in play when you open up the game. Should you decide you want to play just a selection of the paylines and not all 15, you can adjust the number accordingly using the + and – buttons.
The minimum bet per payline is 1p, and the maximum is 25p. Whatever the number of paylines you choose to play, the payline bet will be multiplied by that.
For example, if you play 10 paylines at 10p per payline, 10p x 10 = £1 bet per spin.
In addition to your coin bet, you also have the option to add extra coins to each payline, up to five times.
The more coins you add to each payline, the greater the value of your total bet becomes. Payouts are also multiplied by the coins per line.
Make sure you are playing within your means and check the total bet amount before you start your Egyptian exploration. Your total bet is displayed below the payline meter.
Once you’re all set, hit spin!
To win with any symbol, you will need to land three or more of them on a payline, starting from the furthest left reel. The more paylines you have in play, the higher the chance of landing a winning combo on one. Your biggest wins will come if you can land a full payline of five symbols.
The highest-value symbol in the Riches of Ra slot is the pharaoh. This half-man, half-god has gold and blue headgear, and landing the maximum of five of them across an active payline can award you the jackpot; a whopping 2500 times your line bet.
Next up is the multi-coloured bird symbol. This stunning icon, if you can land the maximum of five along a payline, can award 500 times your bet line amount.
The scarab beetle, a famous symbol from the Ancient Egyptian times, is blue and gold in Riches of Ra. Top payouts could multiply your bet amount by 250 times.
The Ankh is a symbol from Egyptian hieroglyphics and represents the word for ‘life’. Will the Ankh bring some life to your game? Top prize payouts could reach 250 times your line bet.
Your lower-value symbols still hold some decent value. Card values from A to 10 have maximum payouts ranging from 100 to 150 times your line bet, should you land five-of-a-kind along an active payline.
Get set to trigger some of these very special bonus features.
Our title character, Ra, is the wild symbol. Wilds can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play to help build up winning payline matches.
In Riches of Ra, the wild symbol can be stacked on reels 1 and 5. This means that the symbol extends to cover all positions on the outer reels.
If you are lucky enough to land fully stacked Ra symbols on both reels 1 and 5, you can trigger the free spins feature.
You will be awarded 15 free spins, during which, the wilds will be held on the outer reels. Hopefully, this could give you some extra opportunities to create some great combos.
At first glance, these might look like oddly shaped symbols, but these urns can be the gateway to extra wins!
In red, green and blue, different animals are depicted on these urns.
Land any combination of three of them anywhere on the reels in a single spin to trigger the bonus game.
The bonus round is simple, and the choice is yours! Choose one of the urns and whatever the prize is inside the chosen one will be added to your winnings. Nice and easy!
Each time you land a winning combo, you will have the option to either collect your winnings and carry on spinning, or to gamble.
A gamble of the winnings risks whatever you won from the previous spin.
You must correctly guess either the colour or the suit of the card to be turned over.
A correct guess will allow you another turn for a bigger prize, up to five cards. One incorrect guess, however, and you will lose all winnings from that round, so try to vary your usage of this feature!
