Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes is another slot from Novomatic that is based on the original favourite and flagship game (Book of Ra Deluxe). You head to ancient Egypt (again) on a 5 reel, 10 payline reel set that can be played from 10p to £100 a spin on all devices. It comes with a Free Games feature where a special expanding symbol is chosen for big wins. There are also 4 fixed jackpot prizes to be won.
Visually, Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes is almost identical to its predecessors – set inside an ancient chamber, symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as scarab beetles, Horus, Tutankhamen and the intrepid explorer. The latter is by far the most rewarding as 5 on a payline will you 200 times your stake.
Look out for the golden Book of Ra as this is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols – it also acts as the scatter. 3, 4 or 5 golden Book of Ra symbols will reward you with 1, 8 or 80 times your stake as well as triggering the customary Free Games feature – you will begin with 10 free spins.
Before the free spins play out, 1 symbol is randomly chosen to become the special expanding symbol – when it appears, it will expand to take over its reel. If you get a few on the reels, it can lead to big wins, especially if it’s a high value symbol (like the explorer). If you fill the reels with the explorer, you’ll win 2,000 times your total stake. You can win more free spins, with no limits, when you get 3 or more scatters on a free spin.
Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes comes with a Jackpot feature – every time the golden Book of Ra appears, it’s collected above the reels in the treasure chest. The Jackpot feature will randomly trigger and you will come across 12 coins – you then choose 1 to reveal a jackpot gem. You need to match 3 jackpot gems to win the associated jackpot – here’s what they offer:
- Mini = 5 x stake
- Minor = 20 x stake
- Major = 800 x stake
- Grand = 10,000 x stake
Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes is pretty much identical to Book of Ra Deluxe in terms of looks and gameplay – the maximum win from a spin/free spin is 2,000 times your stake as opposed to 500 times your stake in the original. The major difference is the addition of the Jackpot feature which can provide huge wins (10,000 times your stake) if you’re lucky.
For this reason, Book of Ra Mystic Fortunes is better to play – saying that, Book of Ra Deluxe 6 is the best one to play as you can reward you with 6 of a kind winning combinations with possible payouts of 7,500 times your stake on each spin/free spin.
