Book of Ra Deluxe
Book of Ra Deluxe Slot Machine
I’m starting to wonder whether there is any casino slot manufacturer that does not have at least one game based on ancient Egypt? Novomatic at least has the claim to have been there early, with the original Book of Ra a hit in live casinos for 20 years already. The deluxe version of Book of Ra brings noticeably enhanced graphics, a smoother playing mechanism and increases the number of win-lines from 9 on the original to 10. This is a very simple slot, you’ll get a wild symbol and that is your lot as far as features are concerned. The best way to put it would be as ‘one for the purists’.
Even though the graphics are updated, the sounds are not. The online version of this game includes the standard Novomatic computer bleeps sequence while the reels spin. This is more or less a tune, though it adds no value to the experience and becomes irritating very quickly. At least the winning line sounds are more sedate and the noise as your total credits goes up is at somewhat welcome.
Graphics are much better than the original. These are the same symbols as the previous version. Instead of looking like they were transplanted from previous iterations of live slots – these at least feel like they were created by skilled designers. All of the Ancient Egypt classics are there, plus the archaeologist (a reference to Indiana Jones maybe?) and the book symbol which is central to the theme.
