The follow up to the original Book of Ra Novomatic slot, the Book of Ra Deluxe slot is now on mobile phones and tablets.
A 5 reel, 10 line video slot, the Book of Ra Deluxe mobile slot looks and feel straight out the land based casinos.
In fact, that’s exactly what it sounds like. Unless you’re in the free spin bonus feature, it’s all generic bells and dings. The graphics on the other hand, are, if not sharp, then brings together a fun adventure theme. Think Indiana Jones, with high card symbols and the book of the dead from the Mummy film.
In fact, if you’re a fan of the original Book of Ra slot you might be wondering what’s been improved in the deluxe version. The answer is not much. Still with that old school feel, the only real difference we can say between this and the other is that it has slightly better graphics and one extra payline.
Still, at least it’s familiar and easy to understand. Also you should check out some of the numbers on this machine.
This is all about the one wild scatter. Yeap, the wild is also the scatter which triggers 10 free spins. No multipliers, but that’s not what you need from this Novomatic slot.
Once you hit the free spins one of the symbols on the reels will turn into expanding scatters. Not expanding wilds, expanding scatters.
That means that if the extra symbol shows up anywhere, these expand to cover the whole reel they sit on. Usually you get two or three of these, leading to several two to three symbol wins. We have even seen some big slot wins out there with the whole reel covered with a single symbol.
Generally though, we are happy when we walk away from the free spin games with about 60 to 70 times our bet. Not a bad amount, but be careful chasing the free spins. They take time to get here, but when they come it’s worth it.
Big wins are there, but Book of Ra Deluxe slot on mobile is a hungry machine so careful budgeting is needed to play a good 200/300 spins. But when it gets hot it can pay out a max win of 16,000x your bet on a single spin. Impressed yet?

Wild / Scatter: The Book of Ra slot symbol is the scatter and wild symbol, substituting for... everything basically.
Free Spins: Get 3 or more Books of Ra anywhere on the reels to get 10 free spins. You can actually play these yourself by pressing the 'start' button and gamble any wins during the free games. Which give the feeling of playing reel rounds at the casino.
Before the 10 free spins show up, the Book of Ra will open to reveal the extra scatter symbols on the five reels. Whenever this symbol shows up on the reels it acts like a scatter and expands to cover the whole reel. So if you get three of the symbol, you get 3 x 3 symbol payouts, even if they are not on a winning payline.
A simple but wonderfully efficient feature.
Gamble Feature: After every win (unless you put it on auto-spin), you'll be asked if you want to gamble your winnings by picking a red or black card. Here you'll have a 50/50 chance to double your winnings.
Book of Ra Deluxe mobile slot is, in our opinion, almost better suited as an iPhone or Android phone slot. On iPad and tablets you can see too clearly the old-fashion look to the slot, and fans of the more 'virtual' and '3D' slot machines from other mobile casino software providers may be disappointed.
That said, the graphics are not glitzy, but tells a familiar story that is instantly recognisable. The punchline being that there is a genuinely big Egyptian treasure hiding in these reels if you are adventurous enough to go searching.
Try it out for yourself and see if you can unlock those huge slot wins hiding within these 5 reels.

The theoretical Book of Ra Deluxe RTP is around 95.1%, but this can vary depending on which Novomatic slots site you play on.
You can play for free at all good casinos with Novomatic slots, you might have to login or sign up to the casino to do that though. Then when you're ready you can switch to play Book of Ra Deluxe for real money easily enough.
The Book of Ra Deluxe slot variance is set to High. This means you can expect periods of on wins mixed with wins that tend to be higher. High volatility slots tend to have a bigger max win.
Yes, find 3 or more bonus scatter symbols represented by the Book of Ra and you'll trigger 10 free spins where one symbol is randomly chosen to be an expanding scatter symbol for the duration of your free spins. This symbol pays for finding 3 in any position across 3 or more reels increasing your chances at creating a winning combination.
