If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it and just add jackpots. That’s the Novomatic’s mantra in this Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes mobile slot.
If you haven’t played Book of Ra Deluxe slot at some point, chances are you haven’t been to a land-based casino recently. It’s one of Novomatic’s most popular casino games, and it’s been replicated many times.
So this Book of Ra Mystic Fortune slot machine is exactly that; the same game you love, except now you have four local progressive jackpots that slowly build up to a few thousand in cash.
This is a 10 payline slot where the wild and the scatter are one and the same symbol. 3 scatters triggers 10 free spins where one symbol will be chosen to expand and pay like a scatter.
So, for example, this is one of the few online slots where you could get the highest paid symbol on all 5 reels, it would expand, and you’ll get 10 x 5 of a kind wins and 2,000 times your bet.
That’s in a single spin. Not bad right? But that’s what you get on all the others. What makes this Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes slot different from the others that came before it?
When the game is trying to take a slice of your bet, you can’t help but wonder if it’s sacrificing some of the payouts to players. The RTP is the same as the other machines after all and a little bit of that goes to the jackpot.
So logic would say it pays out less than the other games.
We can’t prove it, but you know what? You have so many Book of Ra slots to pick from it seems a waste to play on one that pays less often than the others. It’s not like this machine was that generous to begin with.
Granted, you do have four jackpots, and the jackpot games come around often enough that jackpot slot hunters will be tempted. Everyone else, maybe move on to another video slot.

Wilds as Scatters: The Book of Ra symbol is the wild and the scatter symbol and will replace any other symbol on the reels to create a win over any of the 10 paylines.
It also triggers the free spins.
Free Spins Round and Scatters: 3 Book of Ra symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger 10 free spins.
One symbol will now be randomly chosen and it will expand whenever it is on the reels and pay like a scatter.
So if that symbol appears on reel 1, 4, and 5, for example, that symbol will now expand. Because it pays like a scatter, you'll get 3 of a kind wins on all 10 paylines. The same thing happens if you get more symbols on the other reels.
How to trigger the Jackpot: When the jackpot feature triggers, 12 coins appear and you touch to reveal gems. 3 identical gems trigger one of four jackpots.
These can grow into far more, but generally, you get around these amounts,
Not quite as much fun as the original Book of Ra slot games, mostly because the jackpot slows the bigger wins and the free spins.
But you know what? It's still got the same mechanics as the others and the jackpots are mighty tempting. We could understand why you'd want to bet on this Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes slot on mobile.
It's just that there are many other of its type that, to be honest, look and pay better; Book of Dead by Play'n GO is an obvious choice, for example.
Because, honestly, this feels like Novomatic game studios just cashing in on a well-known brand rather than coming up with new ideas.
Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes is a 5x3 10 fixed betline slot machine with a wild symbol that is also a scatter, free spins, expanding scatter symbol wins and 4 progressive jackpots.
