It is not the first time we have seen an Ancient Egypt-themed slot machine - Amatic themselves have a few similar games in their portfolio. Pharaohs’ tombs and pyramids had been a target for fortune-diggers for centuries and this long-lasting gold fever is a never-ending inspiration for game developers nowadays. When it comes to visuals, Eye of Ra shows signs of weariness and cannot compare with the latest titles and the superb animation the young generations of players are used to. However, if you are willing to put the visual appearance on the side, you will find many reasons why this game manages to keep the players coming back.

Eye of Ra Gameplay

The reel structure is not a standard one and although there are 5 reels as usual, the number of symbols on reels is different (3-4-5-4-3) which creates a rhomboid rather than rectangular shape. In order to make a winning combination you need to line up identical symbols anywhere on adjacent reels starting with the reel 1. Therefore, there are 720 (3x4x5x4x3) possible ways to win. While such a huge number of win ways will please the majority of players, the betting process is definitely not user-friendly. In order to change the bet you need to click on the Bet tab and keep clicking until the desired number of coins shows up. We have counted – there are 27 available bets expressed in number of coins and there is no shortcut to help you choose the desired stake. The maximum and minimum bets stand at 10 coins and 5000 coins respectively.

Bonus Features

The only bonus feature is a session of 5 free spins won whenever 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols (Pyramid) show up at the same time during the main game. Comparing to the video slots nowadays, the number of free spins is ridiculously small, but at least the feature can be re-triggered. The Wild symbols can be seen only on the 3rd reel within the bonus game, but they come stacked so they can create lots of wins.

Symbols & Payouts

We will not go too far in describing the symbols since they represent mostly the Ancient Egypt gods and are seen many times in video slots by various providers. Aside from so called “themed” symbols you will find four card values (A, K, Q and J) as low paying symbols. It is required to have at least 3 identical symbols on adjacent reels to win the prize.

The highest paying symbol is Bonus Pyramid with the jackpot of 500x total bet (250,000 coins in case you are brave enough to bet all 5,000 coins). At the same time, this symbol triggers the Free Spins feature. The Wild symbol is the Eye of Ra symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus Pyramid. The Wild shows up exclusively on the reel 2, 3 and 4 during the main game and on the middle reel only during the free spins. It cannot make its own wins but it appears stacked with 3, 4 or 5 Wilds lined up horizontally which is the reason why it can help you make countless winnings on a single spin.

Eye of Ra on Mobile

The game is available on different mobile devices and loses nothing of the original graphics and gameplay. The Spin button lies right of the reels and it can be used to activate an indefinite number of auto spins if you press and hold your finger for a while. Only the vertical mode is available.

Summary

Eye of Ra can be your cup of coffee only if you are a fan of the theme or a nostalgic player who likes the slots the way they were in the past. Graphics is decent but far behind the cutting-edge games that attract millions of players. However, if you look for the prizes only, Eye of Ra could be the game that deserves your attention.
