The Book of Ra™ makes another entertaining appearance at EnergyCasino
Pharaoh’s Ring™ from Novomatic is an ancient Egyptian themed video slot, in the famous Book of Ra™ series, available to play at EnergyCasino. A 5-reel, 3-row, 20-payline game, it is easily recognisable as a classic Novomatic title. With a minimum bet per line of just 0.02 and a maximum of 4.00 per line, it gives a maximum possible bet of 100.00, making Pharaoh’s Ring™ a game suitable for both gamers on a budget and high-rollers alike.
Featuring the familiar Novomatic style layout, with all of the game controls laid out along the bottom of the screen, it is easy to jump straight into. The green ‘Start’ or ‘Spin’ button is on the far right, with ‘Autoplay’ at the far left, and ‘Lines’ and ‘Bet/Line’ buttons in the centre. Paytable information can be accessed via the pale blue button to the right of the ‘Autoplay’ button, and screen and audio settings adjustable from small buttons at the top right of the game screen.
Scatters, expanding symbols and the Pharaoh’s Ring™ make for great gameplay
The ancient Book of Ra™ symbol serves as a Scatter, substituting for all other symbols except for the Pharaoh’s Ring™ itself. The Scatter is also a special expanding symbol (the book opens to reveal an ‘all seeing’ sacred eye) – which covers 3 reels and rewards players with 10 Free Games. The Pharaoh’s Ring™ symbol substitutes for every other symbol, including the Book of Ra™ Scatter and special expanding symbols. To enable the Pharaoh’s Ring™ symbol to appear on reels 2 and 4, ‘Extra Bet’ must be switched on (you can see if it is or not, by the symbol to the top right of the screen).
When you land a winning combination, you will be given the opportunity to gamble on an ‘all or nothing’ red or black card game. If you win, you will double your winnings, but if you guess wrong, you will lose it all.
On the reels, you will also find a pharaoh (worth 20,000 for 5), a sacred Egyptian cat (worth 8,000 for 5), a goddess (worth 3,000 for 5), a purple scarab beetle (worth 8,000 for 5), ‘A’ and ‘K’ (worth 600 for 5), ‘Q’, ‘J’ and ‘10’ (worth 400 for 5). The symbols themselves are nicely illustrated in an illustrated book style, and are animated when they form part of a winning combination.
A bright, immersive gaming adventure with a retro land-based feel
The background in Pharaoh’s Ring™ is a bright pink/purple sky above desert sands and pyramids. The reels are trimmed in gold, and feature a nice papyrus effect background, whilst the paylines are labelled in bright colours down each side of the reels. In terms of audio Pharaoh’s Ring™ features traditional electronic land-based slot sounds, as is common with games from Novomatic, with a countdown ticker on the gamble game.
Pharaoh’s Ring™ will appeal to players who like other Novomatic games, such as the hugely popular Book of Ra™, and is a well-produced slot with considerable depth and gameplay potential. Whether you are looking for a few casual spins or a serious big winning gaming session, Pharaoh’s Ring™ is a great game to experience at EnergyCasino.
