We have just recovered from the magical atmosphere of The Wish Master, and we plunge into the sands of Ancient Egypt, the stage of this game. You are an archaeologist in the best Indiana Jones tradition. Indy goes on to say, "If you want to be a good archaeologist, you gotta get out of the library", but you have not really to do that if you want to play this amazing game with its mysteries, the Pharaohs and Gods, the Scarab and the Golden Book of Ra, as this game is today even available for android devices on Google Play.

Get 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the Bonus Rounds feature, probably one of the most enticing characteristic of the game.

Free Spins Bonus Feature

The first time you get 3 "Golden Books" you win 10 free spins and a Special Bonus Expanding Symbol that is used during the free spins. Free spins can be re-triggered during the bonus rounds and there is theoretically no limit to the number of free spins you can be awarded with.

After you triggered the bonus, the Book of Ra will appear on the screen, and the pages will begin to move and turn. At a point they'll stop and the Special Expanding Symbol will appear in the book. The value of the Special Bonus symbol is determined by the sign itself, and the chosen stakes. It is a "scatter expansion" symbol which can expand to cover 3 positions on the reel. Get enough symbols to cover the entire reel and win a huge amount of money.

Gamble Bonus Feature

The "Gamble" feature is another bonus feature available in the Book of Ra game. Here there is a virtual deck of cards and you can increase your winnings by choosing the correct colour of the next card drawn.

Bets start at just €0.04 per line and can be adjusted using the + / – buttons for the biggest flexibility. The total bet per spin is shown on the bottom of the screen and calculated as the bet per line multiplied by the number of lines activated.
