Push Gaming surprises us again with an Egyptian game that brings big wins in this Blaze of Ra slot.
Mostly, we like it when the slot games put the focus on the reels, especially when you have a small space when playing slots on Android phones or iPhones.
However, in the case of this Blaze of Ra game, we don’t mind that the 5×4 reels are set slightly back.
The big background, with blowing sand across the screen, and Ra himself sitting proudly by the side of the reels, gives a feel of animation and beauty to what could have been a generic Egyptian theme.
Push Gaming mobile slots tend to be lower in variance, like Peter & The Lost Boys or Star Fall.
So if you are a fan of that kind of low-risk machine, beware of this video slot, it’s a little riskier than it first appears.
You can go for a fair amount of spins (50 or so) without finding much on these 40 paylines, but the minimum bet is also a low 0.20 a spin, which helps.
But when you do, it’s usually by finding stacked wilds on screen, usually 4 high, which then slowly nudge their way down one spin at a time.
Because of those wilds, as generally we only get one reel full of stacked wilds, but every once in a while, we’ve seen two, or three.
Three got us almost 100 times our bet, so if we could see 4 or 5, that’s where 2,000 times your bet could be won.
Which is pretty exciting, if rare. That said, it almost made us forget that the free spin games are the real glory.
Generally, you only get 3 free spins, though technically you could get as many as 10. Five bonus games are the most we’ve ever seen.
And you get reel 1, 3 and 5 completely wild on each and every spin: which is why they don’t give you a lot – much like in the Dragon Sisters slot.
Because with 3 we managed to get over 80 times our bet, with 5 we got over 100 times our bet.
It suddenly becomes so much easier to get huge 5 of a kind wins, and it makes entering the free spins bonus all the more exciting.

Stacked and Nudging Wilds: The Ra symbol is wild and replaces all other symbols on the screen to create wins.
However, when one or more Ra symbols appear on the top of the five reels, these wild symbols will nudge by two downwards, whilst the rest of the symbols spin as normal.
These could nudge more wilds on screens or less, just depends on whether you've been nice to Ra lately or not.
Scatters and Free Spins: When three or more scarabs land on screen, the free spins are triggered.
Each scarab will then reveal whether you've won one or two free spins; meaning if you get 5 scarabs all showing 2 symbols, you could win as many as 10 free spins.
However, the reality is a little more subdued than that as you generally get around 3 or 4 free spins.
The reason for this is that during the free games the first, third and fifth reels are always filled with one big expanded wild Ra symbol.
Blaze of Ra slot on mobile looks beautiful, with graphics that pop and make an Egyptian game interesting again.
But what really makes this stand out are two big features that keep you hoping, even during the many spins in between where nothing happens.
Surprisingly it's the nudging wilds that shine, which thankfully is the feature you find the most.
If you are looking for something similar from this software game provider that could give you equally good wins, then we'd also recommend Wild Neon for tablet and phone.
