Blueprint Gaming slot games are usually well-designed and Legacy of Ra MegaWays hits the spot as usual. The action takes place within the interior of a pyramid or palace. It’s all very ornate and comes together rather nicely. On the reels you’ll see lower value A to 9 values as well as a collection of symbols relating to the ancient Egyptian theme. They include a scarab beetle, burial masks and the bird god Ra. The female treasure hunter is the top symbol. Land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 of her on adjoining reels for a payout of 0.5, 1, 5, 10 or 25 times your stake. There’s also a wild that can land on all 6 reels and substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter.
The number of symbols on each reel varies with each spin. This means that the number of potential ways to win changes with each spin too. If each reel reaches its maximum height there are 15,625 MegaWays in play. Legacy of Ra MegaWays comes with a main bonus feature.
Land 3, 4, 5 or 6 of the logo scatter on the same spin and your reward is 10, 15, 25 or 50 free spins in the Free Spins feature. Before those free spins play out, 1 symbol is selected at random. Every time this special symbol hits it expands to fill the whole of the reel. You can also retrigger the feature countless times for unlimited free spins.
If you don’t fancy waiting to trigger the feature, you’ll also have the opportunity to buy your way in. The price is show on the Ra Bonus Bet feature to the side of the reels – 100 times your total stake.
Legacy of Ra MegaWays is pretty a straightforward slot game. It all works well. As you’d expect, the sound and visuals are impressively done. Likewise, the gameplay. The range of extras isn’t massive (especially for Blueprint Gaming which usually packs in a whole raft of features) but the MegaWays game engine delivers plenty of play.
The Free Spins feature offers some serious potential too. Land a big allocation of free spins and then combine that with a high value expanding symbol and some big rewards are possible. As you may or may not know, special expanding symbols feature in the Free Spins feature for various Novomatic titles and even Book of Dead from Play ‘N Go and Book of Oz from Microgaming.
However, you need to watch out – Legacy of Ra MegaWays is a volatile game so you can expect plenty of barren spells along the way. Saying that, the win potential is huge with a whopping 50,000 times your bet on offer from each spin or free spin! If you like the Egyptian theme, the MegaWays game engine or high variance play then Legacy of Ra MegaWays is a slot game to add to your list.
