At the heart of everything book of ra slot machine is the Cascading Wins feature (also called the Avalanche feature), which means that winning symbols are removed from the path of new symbols falling out. You get one extra line for cascading wins up to 8 lines, which also increases the number of ways to win to 262,144.
Here you can also calculate the mega symbols for any symbol to fall, and these are 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4. When you get 2 Ice Climber symbols (looks like a Yin and Yang symbol) at the same time, you trigger the Ice Climber feature. You will see that all symbols above the Ice Climber symbol become premium and/or wild, and the symbols below become wild.
The most important feature of Book of Ra is the free spins round, and you can start it by placing at least 3 bonus symbols in one round. You get 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins when you get 3, 4, 5 or 6 bonus scatters. You start with a 1x multiplier, which increases by +1 for every X bonus symbol you get. The bonus round can be triggered in the same way as originally.
The Bonus Buy is new to the Book of Ra series, but unfortunately it is not available to UK players. There are several options here. You can pay 100x your bet to get 3-6 bonus scatters in the next round. You can also pay 500x to get the same thing, but now you start with a 10x multiplier in the bonus round.

We had fun testing Book of Ra, and the bonus round brought us some pretty solid winnings. You can see all the highlights in the video below, and the bonus round starts at about 0:56. We’ve edited out most of the main gameplay, but you’ll see some highlights before the free spins round starts.
Book of Ra – Check out the summary.
Book of Ra will prove to be the last game in the Kane series (which is unlikely), ELK will certainly end the story on a high note. This game takes the entire series to a new level, with stunning audiovisuals, brand new and innovative features, and a maximum win potential of 10,000 times, the highest in the series to date.
Accumulating extra lines and expanding your winning styles is much more fun here than ever before, thanks to the Ice Climber feature and expanding winnings. The progressive multiplier can lead to massive bonus rounds, but the expanded reel set resets with non-winning rounds. ELK switched the “safety level” mechanism of the previous Gold Medals to a progressive multiplier, which seems more than reasonable to us.
Plus Book of Ra:
- Ice Climber turns lines into insurance premiums and wilds
- Gold arrow symbol expands to win
- Bonus round with progressive odds
- Maximum win potential of 10,000 times your bet.
