Get ready for a dose of Egyptian gods and mythology on the slot from Amatic. Eye of Ra has an unusual reel set with stacked wilds in the base game and a free spins round with a sticky wild middle reel that can lead to wins of up 3,600 times your bet.
Eye of Ra is a video slot five reels in a 3-4-5-4-3 format with 720 ways to win. Pays are awarded for three to five adjacent symbols from left to right only. Play with the gods on desktop or mobile from 0.10 o 100 credits per spin. The RTP of this high variance game is set at 96%.
Visually, you are taken to a desert scene with pyramids in the background while Egyptian columns flank the reels. The controls menu is marked with a range of hieroglyphs while a number of Egyptian gods dominate on the reels. As with most Amatic slot, you’ll have to make do with a generic soundtrack.
The pay symbols include at the low end the card royals from J to A, awarding wins from 0.5x to 1x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by scarabs, Amaunet, Bastet, Horus, Hathor, Cleopatra and the Pharaoh. Hit five across the reels to win 2x to 25x your stake. The powerful Eye of Ra is the wild symbol appearing on the middle reels only. A scene with pyramids marked with the word “Bonus” is the scatter symbol.
Not much to report on the bonus features other than a free spins round. To trigger five initial free spins you will need to hit a minimum three scatters anywhere on the reels, which can be retriggered indefinitely. You will also win 2x, 10x and 50x your total bet for three, four and five scatters respectively. Reel three turns into a sticky wild reel for the duration of the feature, providing more potential to hit a win.
Amatic has never been a developer that included a lot of features or very fancy graphics and animations. Eye of Ra is actually already pretty sophisticated for their standards. However, their games have gathered a rather large faithful following that enjoys playing simple games with big win potential. The Austrian game provider has a considerable presence in brick & mortar casinos that further contributes to their popularity. Eye of Ra won’t start a firework on your screen but will be good enough for regular medium sized wins.
