Might of Ra Slot Review 2022
Prepare to kneel before the legendary Ra, God of the Sun in Pragmatic Play’s latest and greatest release, Might of Ra!
The fearsome Egyptian God of the Sun has the power to bestow glorious riches onto those who are brave enough to embrace the sun scorched reels. Might of Ra is a 6 reel slot with a Stacked Wilds feature waiting to deliver! Can you take the heat in the Free Spins round, with Ra watching your every move and bags of potential and fun to be had?
Pragmatic Play are at it again with yet another new release to add to their impressive portfolio. This time we’re off to Egypt to try and get a taste of Ra’s glorious riches. Egyptian-themed slots are probably the most common theme we see in a slot, but what makes Might of Ra stand out from the rest? The vivid detail in the symbols and the beautiful background are pretty impressive but it doesn’t feel like that’s enough to tip the scales in Pragmatic Play’s favour. If providers opt for an Egyptian-themed slot, then it’s got to have something really special and unique to put the other slot titles to shame.
Will Might of Ra be as ‘Mighty’ as the title suggests? Let’s play on and find out!
Might of Ra Betting and Symbols
Might of Ra has a variety of betting options for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two.
The highest paying regular symbol in Might of Ra is the Snake, followed by the Horse, Bird and Scorpion. Lower paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten.
Wild symbols substitute for all symbols except Scatters.
Might of Ra Base Game and Features
Might of Ra is a 6 reel slot with 50 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.
The base game in Might of Ra isn’t particularly exciting, even with the Stacked Wilds feature present. If we’re honest, we feel that maybe we’ve become too acustomed to the bigger and better features that can be seen in other slots. The Stacked Wilds feature may not seem like much, but that doesn’t mean it can’t perform like the others.
Whenever a Wild symbol lands in view, it has the potential to transform into a Stacked Wild.
Once this happens, a Multiplier of x3 will be applied to all winning combinations that use the Stacked Wild as part of a win.
Wild symbols appear on all 6 reels in the Base Game and Free Spins.
Might of Ra Free Spins
Landing 3 or more Scatters on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5, triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 15 Free Spins. Any additional Scatters that may land don’t award any extra Free Spins, but instead they Pay.
Once the Free Spins round is active, a new Ankh symbol will come into play. During the Free Spins round, you will need to collect Ankh symbols in order to upgrade the Reel Strips. Collecting enough Ankh symbols will level the round up, as follows.
- Level 1 – The Free Spins round will start at this level, with 54 Wild symbols on the Reel Strips.
- Level 2 – Collecting 5 Ankh symbols will award 12 more Wild symbols. These will be added to the Reel Strips.
- Level 3 – Collecting 10 Ankh symbols will award a further 12 extra Wild symbols. These will be added to the Reel Strips.
- Level 4 – By collecting 15 or more Ankh symbols, an additional 24 Wild symbols will be added to the Reel Strips.
Landing 2, 3 or 4 Scatters during the Free Spins round, awards an additional +3, +6 and +9 Free Spins respectively.
Hitting the maximum win capacity of 22,500x will end the Free Spins round immediately and all remaining Free Spins will be forfeited.
Might of Ra: Our Verdict
Could it be? Are our eyes deceiving us? Has Pragmatic Play released a slot with 22,500x win potential?
Regular readers might have noticed that we like to poke fun a bit about Pragmatic Play’s generic 5,000x win potential, so to see something that is almost 5 times as capable really has us taken aback. We wish Pragmatic would do more like this. Hugely volatile slots are undeniably popular, and more and more people are opting for those big games with big potential prizes.
But is a bigger win potential enough on its own? Might of Ra is a rather generic looking game, but that’s the point where at now with Egyptian slots. Given how many we’ve had, there’s really no way to reinvent them in a way that paints them in an interesting light. As well as this, the gameplay can feel a little bit basic at times.
There’s no stand out innovation here, so if you’re looking to Might of Ra then look to it with low expectations, because we don’t think its a title that will win over the hearts of Pragmatic Play fans like The Dog House Megaways did.
We’ll bet our bottom dollar that it’ll be a hit with crypto streamers though. There does seem to be a striking correlation between these streams and Pragmatic titles, but that is a discussion for another day.
Overall. Might of Ra is a decent showing from Pragmatic Play, and it may even prove to be great for some who are lucky enough to witness its potential. Just don’t expect it to ‘wow’ you.
