Book of Ra: Temple of Gold Theme/Symbols

Visually, the Book of Ra: Temple of Gold slot is different to other Book of Ra slots – for starters, the adventurer is a female character rather than the male character we’ve become accustomed to. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 card suits as well as Aztec emblems including statues, masks and dials. The explorer is the most rewarding symbol with 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline rewarding you with 1, 10, 100 or 500 times your stake.

Free Games feature with up to 3 special expanding symbols

There is no wild symbol but the Book of Ra symbol is the scatter – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 20 or 200 times your stake as well as triggering the Free Games feature. Beginning with 10 free spins, 3, 4 or 5 Book of Ra symbols will give you 1, 2 or 3 special expanding symbols in the feature.

These special expanding symbols are randomly chosen before the free spins begin – these symbols, when appearing on the reels, then expand to cover all positions on that reel. If you were to get the explorer as 1 of the special expanding symbols and she appeared on 4 reels, she would expand to give you 4 full reels. You can also retrigger the feature infinitely.

More special expanding symbols & 5,000 x stake wins

Book of Ra: Temple of Gold is just like its predecessors – graphically, the main difference is the change to a female explorer and you can get up to 3 special expanding symbols as opposed to the 1 in the Book of Ra Deluxe version. Still high variance, you can pocket a cool 5,000 times your stake if you fill the reels with the female explorer on each spin or free spin – the likelihood increases in the Free Games feature obviously.

High variance

I think the Book of Ra slots are superb due to their simplicity and volatility – Book of Ra: Temple of Gold continues this tradition and offers something different (albeit slightly) in terms of theme/graphics. The question is whether you will brave the ancient catacombs on a quest for riches? I recommend you do so.
