Travel to Egyptian deserts and experience gaming in the pyramids as the Wings Of Ra offers a slot based on the same theme.
Revolving around the ancient Egyptian elements of tombs of pharaohs and gods, the Wings of Ra is an entertaining slot developed by Red Tiger gaming. The classic format of a slot is clubbed with the retro pyramidal components in the resulting game.
The layout seems to be set inside a temple-like area that appears to be the modern adaptation of the interiors of a pyramid. The slot contains 5 reels and 3 rows supporting 10 fixed paylines. In order to trigger the payouts, a combination of at least 3 symbols on the slot must be formed. When so happens, light is thrown onto the symbols which resemble the fashion of most classic slots.
However, it is a notable feature here that these symbol combinations do not require to begin from the first reel. They just have to be in the order of a minimum three – the starting point is not taken into consideration here. The first, middle, or end three reels can trigger the wins too. The highest payout of the game touches 3166 times the total stake.
The symbols on the slot include Egyptian elements such as an eye, a pharaoh, a bird god Horus and a Nefertiti ruler. Out of such symbols, the pharaoh pays the highest, which is 30 times the stake for a combination of 5 in a row. Other than those, lower-paying royals are also included that feature 10 – A in ancient, decorative design.
An interesting thing to note here in this game is that there is no wild symbol, but a mystery symbol that supposedly takes its place. When these symbols appear on the reel, they turn to reveal a common random symbol. Various kinds of icons are shown, and after that, one fixed icon is decided to be displayed in place of the coins.
The ‘Free Spins’ scatter symbol triggers the bonus round (as one would expect). Landing a minimum of 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on the slot can trigger the bonus symbols in the following way:
- 3 scatter symbols – 12 free spins
- 4 scatter symbols – 15 free spins
- 5 scatter symbols – 18 free spins
The mystery symbol has a special role to play in the bonus rounds. A progress bar rests on the top of the grid. When the mystery symbol lands on the reels during the free spins, this bar is filled little by little. The appearance of 14 such symbols fills the bar completely. As a result, out of all the symbols currently present on the slot, the lowest paying one is converted into the mystery symbol.
As this process happens over and over again in the free spins, higher chances of winning at the bonus rounds can be secured as the frequency of Mystery symbols in the free spins is comparatively much higher than that in the base game.
In conclusion, Wings Of Ra is a worth playing game for the fans of the ancient Egyptian genre of slots. The combination of a retro and classic design is enough to attract players of all groups.
