Today Relax Gaming bring to us a brand new Egyptian themed game, Ramses Revenge Slot along with the not so new, but much-loved familiarity of the Relax Gaming touch of magic.
Centred around Ramses II, the most celebrated and powerful pharaoh of the New Kingdom in Ancient Egypt, the game is sure to be a hit with those who are fascinated in, or idolise this period of history.
The game brings some exciting features and some huge potential, all within the tried and true grid format type of game that Relax pull off so well.
Quality is certainly an attribute that Relax Gaming have proven time and time again is imperative in their games, and we’re hoping that Ramses Revenge brings more of that undeniable playability that we know so well.
Dynasty of Egypt
Ramses Revenge captures the Egyptian theme perfectly in both visuals and audio. The game setting takes place on what looks like a pyramid, or other large monument under construction.
Ramses was known to construct many large monuments, and built on a monumental scale to ensure his legacy would survive the test of time.
The audio is a classic Egyptian theme, which isn’t particularly catchy, but accentuates the theme well. The tale of this New Slot assumedly takes place eons after the Pharaohs reign, as an explorer goes snooping around where he doesn’t belong…
Betting and Symbols
Ramses Revenge has enough options to suit most peoples needs, but still doesn’t include too many options. The lowest bet available is £0.10 per spin, with the highest at £20. Super high rollers may be a bit of luck here, if your usual preference is upwards towards £100.
The highest paying symbols in the game is Ramses and Anubis, followed by Sobek, and Horus. Low paying symbol are represented by various symbols of Egyptian origin, such as relics.
There is also a Wild symbol in the game, represented by a mummified Ramses which substitutes for all paying symbols on the reel.
Base Game and Features
Ramses revenge is played on a 5×5 Grid, and uses Ways to win as its pay line mechanic. Wins using this mechanic are created by matching at least 3 symbols from left to right, starting from the left most reel.
Ways to win will connect regardless of position on the reel, as long as they are adjacent, so you need not worry about traditional pay lines. Ramses Revenge also features a base game enhancement called Mystery Sandstorm
The Mystery Sandstorm feature triggers randomly. During the feature, 2-6 waves are possible where 1-4 mystery symbols per wave are placed on the reels. All mystery symbols will reveal the same symbol type.
Landing 2 or more explorer symbols anywhere will trigger the Free Spins, and 6 are awarded. During the Free Spins, the mummified Wild symbol will consume, or get its ‘revenge’ on the explorer symbol.
Each mummy position will stay in position until another explorer lands on the reel, at which point the mummified Wild will move over to consume them, while increasing its multiplier by 1.
Collecting these will also give you one extra spin. If you land more explorers than the number of existing mummies on the reel, then an additional Wild will be added.
Big hits in the game will come from collecting a lot of explorer symbols, and connecting Wilds will multiply by each other rather than add to each other, sort of like the mechanic we’re all familiar with from Primal Megaways.
Multiplying by each other rather than adding together is always the preferable option from a player perspective, as this can result in some absolutely monumental hits if you connect them all the way, especially if 3 or more multipliers are active and connect.
For players outside of the UK, you’ll be able to benefit from the option to buy the bonus, available from 80x your selected stake.
When the bonus lands, you’ll ideally land at least 3 explorer symbols giving you that extra Wild going into the bonus, and if not, you might be lucky and obtain a third during the Free Spins round.
The way the mummies multiply each other makes for some super exciting gameplay if they connect, and can result in some formidable wins whatever your stake.
The ways to win mechanic certainly helps with obtaining these wins, and there’s a good chance that any spin could be the one where it all kicks off.
The game boasts an incredible max win potential of 49,996x, and you’ll need some serious mummy action to reach anywhere near it, but if you do, rest assured that Ramsey will have to wait another eon in his tomb to exact his revenge, as you waltz out clutching bags of treasure.
This slot will be available to play on Online Casinos UK on 28/10/20
Overall, Ramses revenge was a little bit slow going, but thoroughly enjoyable when it all starts to kick off. Those who love the grid format, ways to win and Egyptian theme will really enjoy this type of game.
