Book of Ra Deluxe 6 is a Novomatic powered slot with 5 to 6 reels and 10 paylines. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, the classic Book of Ra Deluxe has been revamped to take you deeper into the mysterious pyramids with another reel.

You get to follow the trail of Ra’s book on 6 reels – you can of course play on 5 reels but this would be like playing Book of Ra Deluxe. Playing using 5 reels will cost you between 20p and £50 per spin but activating the 6th reel (known as Extra Bet) will double your stake to between 40p and £100 per spin.

Visually, Book of Ra Deluxe 6 is the same as its 5-reel counterpart – it is set inside a pyramid and has an ancient Egyptian theme. The game even has the same symbols and the same Novomatic soundtrack (which I quite like to be honest). The archaeologist is the highest value symbol with a massive reward of 30,000 times your line stake for 6 on a payline (playing all 6 reels). With 5 on a payline (playing 5 reels), you’ll get 10,000 times your line stake.

Book of Ra Deluxe 6 is all about the Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 of more Book of Ra scatter symbols anywhere in view – you will then receive 10 free spins. As with the classic game, you will benefit from 1 special expanding symbol which is randomly chosen before the free spins start.

This special expanding symbol expands to cover all 3 positions on the reel when it lands – if you get this symbol on a few reels, it will expand to take over all reels. You can get the same symbol on all 6 reels if you’re extremely lucky. What you want is to get a high value symbol as your wins could be sky high! Finally, you can retrigger the feature giving you a further 10 free spins and taking your total to 20.

Basically, this game is the same as Book of Ra Deluxe but with another reel – it allows you to form 6 of a kind winning combinations which pay out more (proportionally) to 5 of a kind wins (in comparison to your stake). Saying that, it’s a high variance game so you need to tread carefully – if you’re luck’s in, you could be set for riches fit for a pharaoh.
