Quasar Gaming is without a doubt one of the very biggest names in all of slots gaming and many players feel that an important part of their success is down to Book of Ra Deluxe. It is one of the truly iconic games within the industry and its release marked something of a landmark event within the industry as developers decided that the time was right to take the visuals, atmosphere and gameplay of their slots to the next level. This game led the way by cramming in much more action than players had ever expected previously and set the scene for a stunning Ancient Egyptian adventure like no other game before it. Even the original Book of Ra, considered by many to be legendary in its own right, was put in the shade by this game and players are sure to find some of the best action around every time that they load up the reels. Below, you’ll find everything that you need to know about getting the very best out of the game and with plenty to explore, you’ll definitely want to read on!

One area in which Book of Ra Deluxe did not break the mould for slots gaming was the betting options and this is completely understandable as Quasar Gaming certainly wouldn’t have wanted to miss out on the interest of fans of their other games. Indeed, that all made for the addition of just a single win line on top of the original, bringing the total up to ten. That number is completely flexible and works in conjunction with the player’s line bet to make up the total bet per spin and, as you’d expect, the bigger the bet, the bigger the prizes on offer for matching up the various symbols. The symbols themselves will all be familiar to fans of the first game, but you’ll be struck by just how much better they look than their older counterparts. The level of realism applied to the sarcophagus is a sight to behold in its own right and the scarab and even the playing card icons look fresh and new today.
At the core of the slot is the Book of Ra itself and it has become known as one of the most important symbols in gaming in its own right. Many of the plaudits for both the symbol and the game centre around the fact that it is one of the most flexible symbols ever seen, acting as it does as both a wild card and a scatter while also paying out a cash prize all of its own. It can effectively fill in for any of the symbols mentioned above, meaning even more wins from both the playing cards and themed icons, but the real magic starts whenever three or more land in view, regardless of where they appear. Achieving this feat will see players being whisked off to the bonus round where free spins await and even more valuable icons are added on to the reels for some absolutely cracking wins that can often make the difference between a good session and a great one.
Book of Ra Deluxe may be a superstar slot in its own right, but that is certainly no reason to exclude one of the most important parts of any Quasar Gaming slots release, that being the gamble game. As with many of the Deluxe range of slots, the playing card version of the gamble is included and players have the option to gamble a prize whenever a win lands on the reels. Guess whether the next card drawn is red or black and if you’re right, that prize becomes twice as large. If you’re wrong, you might lose the first prize but you can get straight back onto the reels to play for even more!
