Place an extra bet to activate the 6th reel and experience the game like never before. The graphics and sound effects remain unchanged, which is a positive for all the diehard Book of Ra lovers. Book of Ra 6 is the ultimate gaming experience with high winning potential in every single spin.
To start off Book of Ra 6, a bet must be placed before each spin. There are 10 bet lines in the game, to choose the amount of lines that will remain in play one can click the plus and minus icons either side of the lines area. The more lines in play the more chances of hitting the free spins round. The amount of coins bet on each active bet line is also important, the lowest amount at Quasar Gaming when the extra bet is not active is 4 credits per line and the maximum is 500 credits per line. This is usually the only bet that is needed, but in this particular version of Book of Ra there is an optional Extra Bet that increases the chance of winning. To activate the extra bet, a quick click of the icon situated at the top. This will automatically activate the sixth line and double your bet stake. The limits are now raised with the lowest amount becoming 8 credits per line and the maximum 1000 credits per line.
In this high variance game the winnings are usually always well worth the wait, however in this 6 reel version the stakes are upped and the winnings are spectacular. When a line win is hit containing the explorer symbols for example, the pay-outs are as follows: 2 symbols will pay out half of the bet amount, 3 symbols pays 5 times stake, 4 symbols pays 50 times stake, 5 symbols pays out 250 times stake – if 6 symbols appear in a win line then the win is a massive 750 times the bet stake! The extra bet may be a risk but the rewards are great.
The unique feature of this game is without a doubt the sixth reel that is activated with the extra bet. Once this is in play the excitement of this slot really reaches new heights, especially when coupled with the free spins round that are what make this game so intriguing to millions of casino lovers both online and offline. The free spins round is activated when 3 or more scatter symbols, also known as the book of ra symbol, appear at random on a bet line. This activates 10 free spins, and if the feature is triggered when the 6th reel is active it will remain in play for the duration of the free spins resulting in more chances to win.
