In a sequel to one of the all-time successes in online casino gaming, Book of Ra Deluxe is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot game offering a free spins bonus round with expanding wilds, a top base-game win of $50,000 … and a dapper Indiana Jones-looking dude to do the paying. The Book of Ra Deluxe slots game follows a familiar theme of the casino slot machine, i.e. the exploration of ancient Egyptian ruins by an adventuring archaeologist. Bet between 10¢ and $400 per spin across 20 paylines.
The symbol is pretty much what you’d expect in Book of Ra Deluxe: In addition to the smilin’ archaeologist dude (we’ll call him Louisiana Johnson), there are relics and such strewn about the (yawn) poker run symbols of A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. Though things play out fairly typically in the base game, nothing is more adrenaline-pumping that landing five Louisiana Johnsons on a single playline for a $50,000 payout…
As has been standard since at least the days when The Ark of the Covenant was a new idea, three or more scatters (here, the mysterious-looking book) trigger the free spins round. 10 free spins are awarded, with all winnings getting a 2x bonus multiplier tacked on.
In addition – and this is the true moneymaker here – a symbol is randomly chosen from among the symbol set and this becoming an expanding wild for the entirety of free spins; it thenceforth expands to fill the entire reel in which it lands like a proper expanding wild.
You sure can! In 2015, a mobile version of Book of Ra Deluxe was released. You’ll likely have to play the game through a mobile casino app; see our pages for links to good hosting websites. By the time you read this, Book of Ra Deluxe may or may not exist in standalone version downloadable at iTunes, the App Store, etc., but at all times beware of imitations. (There are lots out there…)
Both Book of Ra Deluxe and its predecessor Book of Ra are among the most popular slots in Germany and the UK. Supposedly the Book of Ra slot’s popularity in Germany is fueled by persistent rumors that the game is beatable or may be hacked somehow.
Knock yourself out if you’re technologically up to the challenge of hacking Book of Ra Deluxe (or are a fluent German speaker and thus can suss out the truth online), but otherwise assume Book of Ra Deluxe is another high-variance game with a bonus round free spins round well worth waiting out.
