Ra’s Legend is going to give us players a design that is based on the history of Ancient Egypt. Theme wise, Red Tiger Gaming showed about as little originality as you can have in this industry, since Ancient Egypt probably has the largest number of pokies dedicated to it.
The difference is that the graphics are better in this pokie than in the vast majority of the other games that follow the same lines in terms of story. The action still takes place in a pyramid or near one, with the pillars used at the sides being decorated with hieroglyphs.
For its symbols, you have the House of Ra pyramid, the Wheel Bonus, the expanding image of a Horus warrior, and then there is the Eye of Ra, the Horus bird, a Scarab and the Ankh. Lastly, they also designed five poker icons which have a certain resemblance to ancient letters.
If you’re tired of the work that the older pokie creators are doing these days, I suggest you check out the newer developers.
One of these is actually Red Tiger Gaming, the one that put out Ra’s Legend as well. Though in terms of gameplay their pokies tend to be similar to one another, the graphics are always top notch and I enjoyed them more than once for this alone. Even when the theme is not very original, and this game is a good example of that, the design tends to save the day.
How To Play It
You can expect to be asked to cover 40 active lines with your bets, but you will not be asked about individual line bets. From what I’ve seen, Red Tiger Gaming uses a single betting system for all their pokies, and in every single case they ask you to use a wager between $0.20 and $500, which you can set. The line bet seems to vary between half a cent and $12.50 for this game.
The game has a very clean interface, with only a couple of buttons and essential displays available. You set your wager and that’s it, you can start playing it.
A major symbol and feature in Ra’s Legend is the one that is marked as the Sacred Wild. It appears to be an expanding wild, capable of taking over entire reels. If it forms a combination with its own wilds, then it pays up to 1,200x. Most of the time, wilds are used as substitutes for the other symbols, since it can help them form new combinations.
Sacred Wilds, when they appear, will be locked in position for a number of spins. They continue to help you out and hopefully get you as many new wins as your luck can handle.
The Wheel Bonus is a way to trigger a bonus game, with three symbols required to get you inside. A wheel will spin then, and it will stop on a cash prize that you will get, which reaches 388x.
Finally, there is also a feature called House of Ra, where you can win payouts of up to 800x. You need three House of Ra Pyramid symbols to get inside.
The big payout in Ra’s Legend seems to be the one coming from the Eye of Ra or from the Sacred Wild, when they form combinations with matching symbols. At 1,200x the line bet, you can get up to $15,000 this way.
Ra’s Legend might not show an ounce of originality theme wise, but its features and its graphics are good enough to make this a good choice anyway.
