Bow before the almighty god of sun, sky, order, and kings! Although quite an ordinary theme in the video slot world, Might of Ra is no ordinary game. It is one of Pragmatic Play’s boldest designs in the Egyptian theme, featuring a completely unique free spins game. Enter the scorching Sahara deserts of Ra and reach for the jaw-dropping max win of 22,500x your stake!
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Might of Ra is set on a 6x4 gaming grid surrounded by the world-renowned Pyramids of Giza and even the fabled Egyptian god himself. The slot’s base game consists of 9 regular symbols that reward you with a win when assembled in at least one of the different 50 paylines.
The main feature of the Might of Ra online slot is the Ra Wilds symbols. These can land anywhere on the reels and substitute for all symbols except scatter. At random times your Ra Wild can trigger and expand to cover an entire reel! In addition, an expanded Ra Wild symbol has a 3x multiplier further increasing your winning combinations. The Ra Wilds themselves are also the highest paying symbols with a potential reward of 25x your stake in a full line of 6.
The last symbol in the base game of Might of Ra is the Bonus symbol, represented by a sacred scarab. Bonus symbols appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Landing 3 or 4 Bonus symbols will trigger Pragmatic Play’s new bonus game reward 2x or 5x your stake respectively.
During the free spins bonus game, you’ll gain 15 free spins and unlock special Ankh symbols. These symbols are progressively collected throughout your free spins feature and added onto a left-hand sidebar.
The sidebar is essentially your stage progression with 4 levels. Your game starts at level 1 and provides 54 wild symbols within the reel strips. Each time you collect 5 new Ankh symbols you unlock additional levels with the following benefits:
- Level 2 - At 5 Ankh symbols collected, 12 more wilds are added to your reel strips.
- Level 3 - At 10 Ankh symbols collected, 12 more wilds are added to your reel strips.
- Leve 4 - At 15 or more Ankh symbols collected, 24 more wilds are added to your reel strips.
All in all, you can have 102 Ra wild symbols during the entire free spins round. Your bonus game can moreover be retriggered with additional scatter symbols. Collecting 2, 3, or 4 sacred scarabs during the bonus round awards 3, 6, or 9 bonus spins, respectively
Gameplay is filled with frequent bonus games that can be pretty volatile, if I do say so myself. The bonus game is nothing revolutionary but feels fresh nonetheless. A very welcome surprise by Pragmatic Play. They’re definitely onto something here. My biggest nitpick though is the Expanding Ra Wild. The random expanding animation starts even when there is no possible line to win. Quite annoying and just a bad tease in general.
