Expert review

Tested in a licensed casino 717Brillx, which opened in 2019. The test confirmed the opinions about the extreme volatility of the machine. Deep bankroll drawdowns and bonus wins of several hundred bets were obtained.

Deluxe differs from the first version: 10 lines instead of 9, improved design.

The table reflects the main facts that create the first impression of the Book of Ra.

First launch of the bonusAbout round 260
Вероятность любой выплаты в основной игре (Hit Ratio)About 25%
Max payout per linex15

The start was not happy: losing 150 total bets in 250 rounds. Then the opposite event happened - the activation of free spins with three restarts! That is, a total of 40 free rounds were received. They managed to win 204 total bets.

Another bonus trigger happened on the 400th spin. All plus, exceeding 250 bets, the machine "ate" in about 300 next spins.

There is nothing to count on in the main game. The help section of the slot shows good odds for combinations of five symbols: x500, x200 and x75. For 1000 spins, nothing like this has fallen out. "Five of the same type" happened three times, but on badges of low pay. The combinations brought 15, 10 and 10 bets. All other line wins were worse than x10. The most frequent combination is two scatter symbols (Scatter). On it, the player receives two bets.

Expert advice

The Book of Ra Deluxe slot machine from NOVOMATIC has significant volatility and abnormal payout ratio in the main and bonus games (20/80). Therefore, this slot is for experienced users with endurance and a bankroll of 3000 bets. It is realistic to get a progressive loss of 700 bets per 1000 spins here if the bonus is rarely activated.

It is better for beginners to play in the lottery format: make 10-20 spins and close the slot for any result. The purpose of this tactic is to catch the bonus and get a win of 150-200 bets in it.

Due to the low profit in the main game, it is not advisable to play with a bet increase, since you can wait 400-500 rounds for the bonus. It's a good idea to keep the bet constant if you're planning a long session.

A good test result is only a guideline. As the previous experience of experts shows, half of the sessions of 1000 spins will end with the same loss.

The Book of Ra slot is available on approximately 25% of licensed sites on the Russian Internet. The machine is always prohibited for wagering bonuses, as the casino risks paying out several hundred bets.
