Aussie developer Ainsworth takes players for an audience with ancient Egyptian royalty in King Ramses Triple Shot. It’s a simple 5 reel, 25 payline slot that comes with a bonus round that awards up to 30 free spins. You’ll also have a chance to land 1 of 3 fixed jackpot prizes. Play this straightforward game on your PC, tablet or mobile from between £1.25 and £25 per spin.
The sound and visuals in King Ramses Triple Shot are just what we’ve come to expect from an Ainsworth powered slot which have their own unique look. The visuals lack the polish you’ll find from more image conscious developers but they do the job.
Joining the lower value A to 9 royals are a collection of more rewarding Egyptian-themed symbols. In order of value are a chariot, a shield, a horse and a scarab beetle. The Egyptian queen is the top standard symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 in combination and you’ll receive an award equal to 0.2, 4 or 12 times your stake.
The King Ramses logo is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them on the same spin and you’ll receive an award of 5, 20 or 100 times your total stake as well as triggering the Free Games feature. On offer here are 10, 15 or 25 free spins. Landing just 2 scatters adds another 5 free spins to your total.
To the side of the main reel set, you’ll notice a smaller 6th reel. This is the Triple Shot feature. Land a 5 of a kind winner in the base game or the Free Games feature and Triple Shot Bonus symbol in the 6th reel and you’ll win 1 of 3 potential jackpot prizes. The Major Jackpot is worth £10,000.
Which prizes you receive depends on whether your 5 of a kind win was made up of lower value royal or higher value Egyptian-themed symbols and whether or not the combination included a wild.
King Ramses Triple Shot is a typical Ainsworth slot. It’s not overly flashy on the design front and the gameplay is very straightforward. That combination was a little vanilla for our tastes. Ainsworth has a legion of fans though. If you’re among that number, then King Ramses Triple Shot delivers just what you’d expect.
Unfortunately, it’s not appealing enough design wise or on the gameplay front compared to other slots from other developers – for ancient Egypt, you cannot go wrong with Play ‘N Go’s Book of Dead.
