Eye of Ra
Eye of Ra Slot
There must me an unwritten rule that states that every software house needs at least one Ancient Egypt themed slot. Eye of Ra is that slot in the Amatic range. This maker has been creating live slots from their base in Austria since 1993 – and many of their titles have now successfully transitioned online. Eye of Ra has an unusual reel configuration. Instead of the usual 5 by 3 (or 4) grid – the reels are in a diamond formation. Reel 1 has 3 rows, reel 2 has 4 rows the middle reel has 5 rows – and then 4 and 3 again for the final 2 reels. Within this reel format, any unbroken sequence of symbols from left to right create a win.
The game itself is relatively simple. There is a free spins bonus game, which does have an entirely wild middle reel. You will also find some good sized wins from regular play, topped by 150x your stake for 5 of the bonus symbols. The all-ways winning system will create a lot more wins than the older win-lines based games too.
Graphics are good without being exceptional. If you have played any other Egypt themed slots before I am sure you can guess the main symbols very easily. There is a golden mask, Cleopatra, Ra, the trusty scarab beetle and the eye too. These are all produced with large amounts of gold, which does give a sense of quality to this game which other Amatic slots lack. There are some basic animations on the reels, though mostly coloured blocks and flashing when you hit a winning combination. Sounds are a mix of Amatic standards and very short bursts of Egypt themed tunes.
