Links of Ra Slot Review 2021
We can see a pattern emerging with Slingshot Studios games. Previous titles like Game of Thrones Power Stacks and Leprechaun Links all house the Power Stacks and Link & Win features. If you’re a fan of one or both of these features, then you’ll no doubt love what’s on offer here…or will you?
Links of Ra adopts what was once considered a timeless Egyptian theme, but lately it feels a little more timeworn instead. It’s hard to get really excited about something that you’ve seemingly seen a thousand times before, but is Links of Ra deceptively different from those akin to it in the visual sense?
We’ve seen the bottom of the rainbow in Slingshot Studios most recent slot Leprechaun Links and now we’re heading straight to the very top of a Pyramid in Links of Ra.
Links of Ra Betting and Symbols
Links of Ra has a variety of betting options for you to choose from. For players who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available is £/€0.20 per spin. For players who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £/€20 per spin, with plenty of options in between the two. Bets can be configured by Coins per line or coin size, which in turn changes the total bet. There’s no real noteable difference between the two, so really just choose whichever total bet you’re comfortable with.
The highest paying regular symbol in Links of Ra is Horus, followed by Anubis, Sekhmet, Sobek and Khnum. Lower paying symbols fall to the Red, Yellow, Blue and Purple Gems.
Wild symbols substitute for all symbols except Scatters and Coin symbols.
Links of Ra Base Game and Features
Links of Ra is a 5 reel slot with 40 fixed paylines. In order to form a win you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbols from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
During any random spin in the Base Game and Free Spins, symbols can become Power Stacked.
The power stacked symbols are added to all 5 reels, where all symbols except Scatters and Wilds can be Power Stacked.
Link & Win
Sat directly above the reels is a meter. In order to trigger the Link & Win feature, this meter needs to be filled with 6 or more Coin symbols during any random spin in the base game.
Once triggered, 3 Link & Win Respins are awarded. All Coin symbols that triggered the Link & Win feature are held in position, whilst all other empty symbol spaces respin.
Any additional Coin symbols that land during respins will be held in position, and all respins will reset back to 3.
The Link & Win feature will end when all respins are complete or if the Grand Jackpot is awarded.
This feature can also be triggered during the Free Spins round.
During the Link & Win feature, you may come across 4 individual Jackpot amounts. These can land at any point during the Link & Win feature.
If you manage to fill all 20 of the reel spaces during the Link & Win feature, the Grand Jackpot will be awarded instantly.
Each Coin symbol in the Link & Win feature has its own unique Cash Value attached to it.
All Coin symbols are automatically Multiplied by x2 in Free Spins.
Links of Ra Free Spins
Landing 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels, triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 15 Free Spins.
During Free Spins, all winning combinations are Multiplied by a x2 Multplier.
Unlike the base game, Wild symbols become Stacked during the Free Spins round. In addition to this, the Link & Win feature can also be triggered during Free Spins.
Links of Ra Our Verdict
Links of Ra has a lot going for it in a lot of ways. A very particular and meticulous approach was taken in ensuring great graphics and sounds for Links of Ra, which is a lot more than what could be said for others with the same Egyptian style.
When it comes to gameplay, Links of Ra doesn’t really offer too much in terms of innovation, but it’s not bad either. There’s certainly still a lot of life left in the Link & Win style of gameplay, but we fear that it’s not as timeless as perhaps the Megaways Mechanic has proven to be. Links of Ra certainly has the potential to impress those new to the mechanic and even returning players, but we’re doubtful that it will enjoy the kind of longevity that others do.
That being said, win potential is certainly impressive in Links of Ra, and if you manage to bag yourself one of those big prizes you’d undoubtedly find yourself a faithful player to Links of Ra and Link&Win style slots going forward. Whats even better is the fact that the values double during Free Spins
Overall, It’s hard to be too enthusiastic about Links of Ra, but it has its merits. It may not make the grandiose impression that other slots do, but it certainly isn’t without potential.
