If you’re not already worn out from the Book of series then Greentube has brought yet another addition to our casinos - Book of Ra Deluxe 10! The “Book of” series is one of the most cloned slot games on the market since the first edition was launched back in 2004.
Released on the 18th November 2019, let’s take a look to see what Greentube has done to set this new edition aside from the other versions.
To begin with the first main difference you will notice about this slot is the unusual layout of the reels. Unlike most slots, this new addition has 2 sets of reels - a standard 5x4 grid and a second reel set which consists of 5-reels and 12-rows.
Book of Ra Deluxe 10 comes with 100 pay lines. The standard reel set contains 25 pay lines and the second set of reels contains 75 pay lines! The slot is playable from € / $0.10 up to the maximum bet amount of € / $100 per spin.
Designed to be low to a medium volatile slot, Book of Ra Deluxe 10 offers players a chance to win up to 1,200x your bet a has an RTP of 95.02%.
Please note that the RTP and bet amount may vary slightly depending on the casino you play at, or whether you are playing a demo or real money.
The “Book of” series are all incredibly similar when it comes to the mechanics, design, and features. When it comes to this Greentube creation, however, it was a pleasant surprise to see some additional features added to spice up the game.
To trigger the free spins round in Book of Ra Deluxe 10, you are required to land three or more scatter symbols on the reels.
Just like in the other “Book of” series the Scatter symbol is represented by the almighty book itself.
Depending on the number of Scatter symbols you land on the reels will determine how many free spins you will be awarded.
- 3 Scatter symbols award 8 Free spins
- 4 Scatter symbols award 12 Free spins
- 5 Scatter symbols award 20 Free spins.
As you have probably already guessed before the free spins round begins you will be presented with the Book. The book will randomly designate you a symbol that will act as a special expanding symbol for the duration of the free spins round.
Similar to the Transferring Wilds, any stacked symbols which land on the reels will be mirrored onto the second set of reels.
The Stacked symbols are denoted by a mummy and the famous explorer himself.
To trigger the Stacked symbol you are required to land them on the second set of reels which is 5x12 during the main game or the free spins round.
Stacked symbols once in position on the reels, will become stacked one on top of another.
Transferring Wilds start as a stack of Wilds on the first reel set and can be triggered during the base game or free spins round.
Every Transferring Wild that stacks up on the first reel set will become mirrored on the second set of reels, providing you with an extra chance to increase your winnings.
For example, If a set of stacked Wild symbols lands on the first reel set on reels 1 and 3 they will also be transferred to reels 1 and 3 on the second reel set. So essentially the Stacked Wilds mirror each other on the reels.
Our Verdict on Book of Ra Deluxe 10
To wrap things up, it was actually a difficult choice when it came to rating this latest “Book of” slot.
When it comes to the theme of the slot there are no drastic changes, as it follows the same theme as the other series. The reels are set in front of the famous historical Egyptian pyramids during the beautiful evening sunset. Although the scenery is not the most magnificent we have seen, it sets the story of the slot nicely.
Secondly, I was pleasantly surprised to see the unique layout and twist that Greentube had added to their new slot. At first, the two sets of reels can feel intimidating and slightly confusing to keep up with, however, this is easily overcome after a little time play.
Although with 2 sets of reels and 100 pay lines, I was rather disappointed to discover that the game came with such low volatility and the potential to only win 5x your bet for 5 of a kind.
Despite the pros and cons of the Book of Ra Deluxe 10, it was great to see Greentube put some innovative thought into changing up the design and features of the game.
For any “Book of” fans, they are sure to love this latest addition. I can even imagine those who have tired of the series wouldn’t mind giving this addition a quick spin due to its quirky makeover.
