Book of Ra

Play for real money

Book of Ra is a 9-line video slot brimming with themes of Egypt. Delve into this dark, golden tomb and see what treasures you can find. With plenty of bonus features and big payouts to be had, Book of Ra is a definite winner. You can play this game for real money at any Novoline casino.

Before you start trying to find the fortunes of the pharoahs, set your bet to fit your bankroll. Use the - and + buttons next to Bet/Line to change the amount you are wagering. Available bet sizes range from 0.02 to 5.00 per line. Press the - and + buttons next to Lines to change the number of active paylines. Hit Start to begin, or use the Autoplay button and plus and minus buttons above it to spin several times continuously.

Book of Ra is great for the numerous ways to win. The payline wins themselves are generous, with 5 archaeologists paying an impressive 5,000x your line bet. The real big bucks, though, usually come from the scatter feature. Get three or more scattered books to begin. Pages of the book will flip and randomly determine which symbol will expand during the 10 free spins. With same symbols popping up everywhere, these free spins are incredibly generous.

Sometimes, we tend to start things off with the newest and the latest of anything that we can find. A new car should be one of the latest models. A washing machine should be a new model too. Likewise, a game. I started playing Novomatic games with the trendiest game I could find...the Book of Ra Deluxe. Yep, there's a newer version out by now, the Book of Ra 6, but this game wasn't out yet at that time. Having played lots of times on the Deluxe version, I decided one day to try out the original version, to compare the differences between the two games, for better or for worse.

Well, at first glance, the game isn't as striking nor welcoming as the Deluxe version. The graphics do show their age by now, but this is only to be expected. The paytable looks the same, except there are only 9 play lines instead of the 10. The Explorer does look younger in this game than on the newer version, but does it mean that a game explorer ages with the game too? Well, maybe not the Explorer, but the game designer him/herself, so he/she made the Explorer aged as he/she did?! Hahaha. Your guess is as good as mine!

Well, I realised now how wrong I was when I estimated the highest possible win on the Book of Ra Deluxe game. The Explorer pays 5000x per payline for 5 of him, making it a total win of 50,000x the line bet as the highest possible win, or simply put, 5000x the total bet. Now that would make a HUMONGOUS win! With this older version, this would be 4500x the total bet, but still a humongous win by any current standards. Newer games nowadays tend to be of the lower variance kind, with the highest possible win rarely exceeding 2500x the total bet amount, but with more smaller wins occurring, of course. Well, you can't satisfy everyone in any case. Some like it small but often, some prefer it BIG, even if only once in a blue moon, or should I say, once in a golden moon! For me, I like whatever comes! Hahaha.
Well, not exactly what I don't like, but dislikes due to the game being an oldie. Some oldies have remain everlasting, like Playtech's Safari Heat, for example, but this Book of Ra was a big hit in those days, then became overshadowed by its newer brother, the Deluxe version, and probably yet again overshadowed by the latest Book of Ra 6 version. I don't really know for sure, but diehard fans of Novomatic games would know better. Some may like the 9 play lines, some may prefer the 10. I haven't really played much of the Ra 6 version, but for now, this original version has to stay at the bottom of my preference list amongst the three.

Book of Ra is video slots with 5 reels and it offer 9 paylines. It is creation of Novomatic software. We could find this game also in land based casinos, I think there is more popular than at online casinos.

I remember when I was at land casino I played so many different slots, many of them came from Novomatic software. After I found this game online and later when I saw some great big wins on it, I regret because i didn't tried it there. On the other side at online casinos you can get better RTP than on land based, but it is more interesting in one way to play it somewhere where are many slots machines.

This game offer great free spins feature. It is trigger by at least 3 scatters which are in this case books. All theme based on old Egypt. I like when you get free spins and then when you received feature symbols for the free spins. During free spins a randomly selected symbols could expand to the hole reel where it lands and it brings you big money. Sure some of features will pay poor, but others can be extremely huge. This game could offer winnings over x 2000 for sure, and even more.

Otherwise Novomatic games are not my first choice to play them. I prefer other software providers, but I like this game when it is in the mood. It could pay you huge or it can take you money very fast. I think this is number one game from Novomatic software.
I don't like this game about minimum bet. When I was playing it at some casinos they have minimum bet set to 0.45€. I think this could be set lower because it has many dead spins and it can eats money fast. I would like too see that I could play it at lower bets.

To be honest I am not a big fan of Novomatic slots and I don’t play them often but Book of Ra is their best work and only their slot which is interesting to me. I like theme of this game. Egypt, pyramids and Pharaohs were always very interesting for me and that is reason why I tried this game. Name of this slot is “Book of Ra” and that is nice name because all time when I play this slot on my mind are only books and I looking for books only : ). And three books are enough for free spins round.

Free spins round is best part of this slot. For three books you get 10 free spins and extra symbol which is random and that symbol pays extra during the free spins round. In my experience free spins in most of cases will give you decent amount of money, so I am not saying that big win is guaranteed if you win free spins but you won’t end up with nothing after free spins. Also this slot is on of them which offers gamble option for every win. In gamble option I usually lose all my money : ). It is funny now when I write this but when I lose money it’s not so much. That gamble mode is simple, they draw card and you guess is it red or black and I will recommend to skip that option : )
Things that bother me on this slot is that only 9 lines paying money. So I am playing here on bet 0.9 per spin or 10 cents per line but very often happened that I don’t have any win in 9-10 spins in a row. That is a little frustrating. And a lot of times when I follow reel by reel how I getting symbols I am happy about them and later I realize that on this slot that line not paying and on almost every other I would have big win.

This slot have few lacks but in general I think that this is decent slot and I will give him 7 stars.

I think that Book of Ra and Sizzling Hot are ones of the most played games in the history of slots. Whenever I go to the local casino I can see at least 10 slot machines with these games on.

This is a 9 payline, 5 reel slot coming from Novamatic. The graphic isn't so great because it’s an older slot and the music can seem dull to a newbie gambler. But if you have spent hours and days sitting in front of a slot machine in a casino the music is something you just want to listen over and over again. I really like the sound when you get some 5 of a kind win.

The theme of the game is placed in ancient Egypt like many slot games online. The highest paying symbol here is the archaeologist and if you are lucky enough to get 5 of the on a winning payline you will be awarded a nice 5 000 x bet win. I don’t play this game now for a simple reason because I stopped going to the local casinos but if I ever decided to start land based gambling again this is definitely the game I will be back playing.

The biggest wins in the game come in the free spins bonus. The bonus is triggered when you get 3 or more Book of Ra symbols. This symbol is both scatter and wildso you can get a nice starting win if they land on a winning payline. You get 10 free spins in which one symbol is randomly chosen to serve as an extra scatter. It would be good to get the highest paying symbol and see 5 of them in the bonus later but usually this never happens. My biggest wins were when I get some lower card symbol like K or A. these symbols tend to come more often and I usually get 2 or 3 times 4 of them in the bonus. Like all Novamatic slots if the game is willing to pay out it will retrigger the free spins lots of time providing some insane 500-1000 x bet win.
The Book of Ra is one of those games I haven’t played in ages. Nevertheless this is a fantastic game which I should definitely be playing again. Unfortunately not much of the online casinos I frequent have this game in their selection. Book of Ra, however, is a Novomatic classic and apparently it can also be found in land-based casinos or as an iPhone app.

The game itself basically focuses on some sort of archaeologist who’s looking for all the hidden treasures Egypt and their pyramids have to offer. Book of Ra was such a success that there is also a second version of the game called Book of Ra Deluxe. I’ll keep this review limited to discussing my experiences with the first version though.

The symbols on this game are depicted by the Book, Archaeologist, Sphinx, Falcon, Scarab and high value card symbols. The Book is the most important symbol in this game since it has a double function. If I recall correctly it serves as a scatter and wild at the same time.

You need at least 3 to trigger the free spins session where you get awarded 10 free spins + an expanding symbol. The book then flips and chooses as a particular symbol that will expand during the free round. I played this game on a bet size of €0.45 mostly.

First time I played this game I will never forget how easy it seemed to be to trigger and re-trigger this feature. While I got the free spins the Ace card got selected. During the free spins I must have re-triggered the round for an additional 10 free spins like 5 or 6 times. The combinations kept coming in since the Ace expands if appears. Overall I won more than 600x bet from this game.

There were also other sessions of course where I couldn’t trigger the feature, not even if my life depended on it. So you’d really have to catch it when it’s being generous.Overall a very decent game and definitely one I’d recommend.
The Book of Ra is one of my favorite 9 line games. It has passed the test and went from good to awesome in one spin. I try not to play this game online and usually wait till I go to our local casino. This game is usually the first one that I start playing and usually decides if my day is going to be good or bad. The bet I use is €0.90 and in my view the best for this game. You get great pays and if you get the feature, you could make few hundred easy.

I really like the theme of the game, its mysterious and dark, and make the whole experience delightful.The graphics bring the theme to life and I find myself spending hours in same position.

But the best thing about this game and im sure everyone would agree is the feature. It is freaking awesome and I always make money on it. To get the feature you need three or more books on the reels. The books are also wild and you can get a good win even before you start the feature. I got five book a couple of times and started the feature with €180. The feature awards you with scatters and 10 free spins. I like getting lower paying symbols like K or A, rather than the big ones. I got big money on them and they come out more often. My best win was just over €330 on €0.90 bet. Usually I make about €70, and of course there are some times when I make only 20x or less.
This game can really turn off and rob you blind. I would admit that it does not happen as often as online, but it can seriously kill the buzz. Over all an awesome game with some amazing pay out. Seriously recommended. My rating 9 out of 10.

Book of Ra is an interesting slot game that comes in two versions. You can find this game in it's standard edition, but you can also find a more modern version of this game, Book of Ra Deluxe.
The older version of Book of Ra with its graphic and sound gives an impression of an old school slot game. Unlike the Book of Ra Deluxe version that has 10 paylines this game has only 9 but it seems to me that it is more generous in the bonus rounds. I don't know if it's only luck but I had bigger wins while I was playing the older version of the standard 9 payline game.

The most wins you will have here are if 3 same symbols appear in one of the payline from left to right. This wins are small but there is a gamble option in this game where if you guess the color of the card you double your win. Personally I use this option often when I have small wins. You can have big wins and off course big money in the free spins bonus round. If you get 3 or more symbols of a book ( that's where the name of the game comes ) then you trigger the bonus round with 10 free spins. At the beginning you choose an extra wild, symbol that brings extra wins within those 10 free spins. This way you can have wins that are 100 x bet and bigger so for a 10 coin bet you can have a win of 2750 coins in the bonus round. The bonus round and the chance to have some very big wins are what makes this game so tempting.

Overall I like the standard version of the Book Of Ra but on the other hand the Deluxe version has 10 paylines, a better graphic, autoplay option and sound control.
I recommend this game and hope that you will enjoy it and I give it 7 out of 10.

Book of ra is probably most famous video slot from novomatic. Also, this is not only very popular online video slot, you can find this game in many land based casinos, and i think this game is one of the most popular game in Germany, for example, since it is German company who create this game.

This game has 10 paylines, but take note about important fact that i never see min bet on this game less than 0.40 , so i think it is novomatic restriction and casinos simply can not do anything with this. At least it is generally not have any difference to play with less lines, and if you not have balance to play 0.40, you can play with 5 lines at 0.20 bet. I like payouts on this game, for most paying symbols payouts is greater than x 100 total bet, and 5 scattered books, which also work as scatter and wild, player will get 200 x total bets + few nice lines wins, since books also a wilds here. With 3+ books player get 10 free spins with random expanding symbol, and this is one of the best free spins feature which i ever see playing online slots, yes, simply this. I am happy to say that i get 5 books once in this game, and was awarded around 350 x total bet, unfortunately books did not land on payline. My best total win on this game is 1000 x total bet, i landed in free spins 4 best paying symbols, and they was also expanding symbol, shame that 5 did not appear, in this case my payout can be 5000 x total bet, and it is max win on this game also.

Great game, but variance is insane high. I can put this game in a row with dead or alive, break da bank again, and dead or alive. Few times i had 400+ spins without feature, so did not bet too high.
Book of Ra or how everyone calls it in my country the "books" is one of the first slot games i ever played.I heard stories from my friends that they play some books game in land casinos so one day i decided to go with them and try it myself.Don't know if it was beginners luck but after only few spins i managed to get three books which meant 10 free games with special expanding symbol of ten.When ever i get three or more ten symbols during free games on reels they expanded to whole reel and bring a decent win.That day i won about 20 euros from 9 cents bet and i was instantly hooked to this awesome slot game.

When my online gambling adventure started i looked everywhere to find this slot and ended up in star games where they had identical version.The only big difference between land and stargames version is size of bet per line.The online version could not go under 5 cents per line so i had to bet 45 cents per spin if i wanted to activate all 9 lines.I deposited a few times in this casino to play this slot but with very little success.Later on i managed to find some other online casinos that have this slot and i registered in all of them but none payed like the land based one.To tell you the truth Book of Ra can be a very stubborn slot.It can take a lot of time to activate free spins and it can hurt your wallet a lot because this game does not pay enough small wins.

The best way to play it for me is set my limit to 30 spins if i don't get free spins i stop playing.It is really bad to chase free spins for long because there is no guarantee that they will pay nicely when you do get them.Biggest amount i won with free spins in online casinos playing this game was about 120 euros from 45 cents bet but the reason for this is that they re triggered four times.Book of Ra is a nice slot which you either love or hate i am one of those who love it and i will play it again in future for sure.
