Book of Ra Deluxe 6 is a 5 to 6 reel, 10 payline video slot from Novomatic – playable from 80p to £80 per spin, you are taken on another mysterious adventure into the royal burial chambers but this time with the optional 6th reel. Your aim is to search for the Pharaoh’s gold with the aid of Ra’s book.

A 6-reel adaptation of the iconic Book of Ra Deluxe video slot, you can play with 5 reels but it comes to life with that 6th reel – activating the Extra Bet mode will see you play with 6 reels but will double your stake. The minimum stake then goes up to £1.60 per spin for example.

Graphically, Novomatic hasn’t changed things as Book of Ra Deluxe 6 plays out inside an ancient Egyptian pyramid and even uses the same symbols on the reels. With the classic Novomatic soundtrack, the archaeologist is the most lucrative symbol giving you 30,000 times your line bet for 6 on a payline. As you can imagine, it’s possible to create 6 of a kind winning combinations.

The main attraction, as with the original, is the Free Games feature which is triggered when 3 or more Book of Ra scatters are found anywhere on the reels on 1 spin. You will begin with 10 free spins and 1 symbol is chosen to be the special expanding symbol – just hope for a higher value one!

When this randomly chosen special expanding symbol appears during the feature, it expands to cover the entire reel. If it shows up on a few reels, it will expand to cover all reels that it appears on! What you’re looking for is a high value symbol on all 6 reels for huge wins. You can also win an additional 10 free spins giving you 20 in total.

Book of Ra Deluxe 6 is very similar to the original but has an extra reel and bigger payouts – the bonus feature is identical with the same amount of free spins on offer. As you might expect, it’s a highly volatile game so you need to be careful it doesn’t suck up your bankroll. On the other hand, it can give you huge 6 of a kind winning combos which would be fit for any pharaoh!
