Are you a fan of Book of Ra, Book of Dead, Book of Gods and the other dozens of slots with the expanding symbol mechanic? And did you maybe turn into a Megaways fan lately? Well, now you can enjoy the best of both worlds on the slot from Blueprint Gaming. With six reels and up to 15,625 ways to win it can lead to insane payouts of up to 50,000 times your stake in the free spins.
Legacy of Ra Megaways is a video slot with six reels, two to five rows and 64 to 15,625 ways to win. The game is using the patented Megaways engine with variable reels where two to five symbols appear on each reel on a spin. The bet size range from 0.10 to 100 credits, making the slot a perfect choice for both, low and high rollers. The RTP of this high variance game is set at 96.01%. It has such high volatility that it would rate 11/10 on a scale from 1 to 10.
Yes, it has an Egyptian theme which is pretty much self-explanatory to anyone who has played slots a few times in his/her life. The columns and eternal flames are included just like the various gods as pay symbols on the reels. Not to be missed are the pyramids and the rising sun in the background and last but not least the oriental soundtrack.
No surprises here. At the low end are the usual card royals from 9 through to A, followed by scarabs, Anubis and Horus at the high level. For once though the explorer is not male, instead Blueprint opted for a dashing lady that will guide you through the treacherous pyramids in quest of the hidden treasures. She will award the best pay on this slot with 25x your stake for a single six of a kind. The wild symbol is a sacred scroll with a pyramid while the slot logo is the scatter symbol.
Three to six scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger 10 to 50 free spins, which can be indefinitely retriggered. Before the round starts, one of the regular pay symbols except the wild is randomly selected as the special symbol for the free spins. Any three landing adjacent or scattered on the reels will expand and award scattered pays.
But that is just for starters as this is the moment where the Megaways effect will kick in that could change a big win into an insane win. Whereas on the standard ‘Book of…’ slots the maximum pay lines are limited to 10 and thus a win with the expanded special symbols is awarded 10 times, there is no such limit on a Megaways slot.
Every reel can have up to five symbol positions, meaning three scattered special symbols on three reels with five positions will expand and pay accordingly. For example, landing a special symbol on three reels with five symbols each on that spin will pay 5x5x5 = 125 times a three of a kind of the special symbol.
Well, it was about time somebody rattled the “Book of…” slot section with something more exciting. The dust should have come off already when Big Time Gaming released their take called Book of Gods but they opted for a 243-ways engine and for some reason the slot never proved very popular among slot players.
Blueprint Gaming is taking it up not just one but multiple notches by combining two worlds on the Legacy of Ra Megaways slot. They even used part of the name from the first slot of this kind, which is Book of Ra from Novomatic. Beware though this creation is a high-volatility monster demanding some caution on the bet size as it will be merciless at times.
