Rise of Ra is a hieroglyph inspired ancient Egyptian slot machine.
It’s the first in a series of Rise of Ra games from EGT. As a result of its earliness in the series, it feels a little dated in some ways. But the theme is a classic one, and even dull versions of the ancient Egyptian slot tend to work pretty well.
This is definitely a dull version of the ancient Egyptian slot.
The graphics are reasonable, though the faces on the human symbols look a little dodgy. The artifacts and hieroglyphs look nice.
And everything is reasonably well animated with a soundtrack that is minimalist but fine.
Most of this slot’s attitude to design seemed to get the basics right, and then stop.
This slot has five reels, three rows and fifteen win lines.
The system used is a little clunky and lacks a turbo version to speed things up.
There is a basic free spin bonus (details below) and a gamble feature. But, as with the graphics, everything feels minimalist and basic. Phoned in even.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol. Any win that includes one or more Wilds is doubled.
Three or more Scatter symbols trigger fifteen free spins. During the free spins, a multiplier of x3 is applied to all wins.
At the end of any random spin, Rise of Ra can trigger a jackpot bonus. This starts with a picking game in which 12 cards are dealt out and the player must pick cards until they have three of a matching suit.
Rise of Ra has four progressive jackpots. These are – from smallest to largest – the club, diamond, heart, and spade jackpots. The player then wins the jackpot of the suit they matched three times.
The return to player of this game is 95.97%, pretty much spot on on our yardstick for average, which is roughly 96%.
The range of bets on the site we tested ran from a minimum bet per spin of $/£/€0.15 up to a maximum of $/£/€90.00 per spin.
The volatility of this game is medium, which makes it a poor match for our preferred slot machine strategies. Our slot strategies target the highest possible volatility.
With an RTP of 95.97%, which is pretty much average, this game could be an adept for a recommendation, if it had high volatility or unique gameplay. However, it earns itself no points with its medium volatility and ordinary bonus features.
The whole slot feels like it was put out with minimal effort. Give it a miss and check out one of the other slots in the ancient Egyptian style, of which there are plenty.
