Blueprint Gaming presents an adventure with the sun God Ra! Legacy of Ra is a megaways slot, meaning it has a borderline ridiculous amount way to win. Let’s venture into the temples and deserts of Egypt to win some serious cash from these favourable mechanics.
As with other megaways slots this one is presented over six reels, with variable rows and a mind-boggling 15625 ways to win. Symbols come in various sizes with up to seven on every reel, and it’s this that allows the game to push the ways to win so high.
The look of the desert
The reels sit between grand golden columns at either side, against a vista of pyramids, camels and other Ancient Egyptian clichés. High-value symbols across the reels are made up of a female explorer figure and several incarnations of known Egyptian gods. Low-value symbols across the reels come in the standard form of the playing card deck, from 9 to Ace.
The wild in the game comes in the form of the word ‘Wild’ in gold. It will behave as one might expect, substituting all other symbols to form wins, except for the scatter. That scatter is the Legacy of Ra logo and comes in very useful as the key to the features.
Scatter triggered features
Everyone loves a good free spins feature, and here is one on steroids for the dedicated lovers of these rounds. Get at least three scatters anywhere across the reels and you’ll get 10 free spins. However, if you’re lucky enough to get more you’ll see 15 free spins for four scatters, 25 spins for five scatters and a huge 50 free spins for six scatters.
At the beginning of the feature one symbol gets selected to expand and fill the reels on which it sits, it’ll also be able to pay out as a scatter, pushing wins even higher. If you get three further scatters during the free spins round it’ll retrigger on the same terms.
Buy your way in
In this day and age we don’t like to wait for things, and many of us are happy to pay to jump queues or get a better level of service. So, if you want your spins immediately without waiting, simply hit the button to the left of the reels and buy them for 100x your total stake. Although it is pricey, you can take home some bigger wins and the RTP will rise from 96.01% to 97.01%.
We are always in two minds about slots that have such complexity, even though they can eventually pay well. There is an argument for a nice clean and simple interface. But it is what it is, and as a ‘busy’ slot, Legacy Of Ra Megaways isn’t really all that bad. It entertains, it’s enjoyable and it will, if you stick with it, make you richer.
