You can easily guess from the title of the slot that it is inspired by Ancient Egypt and one of the greatest pharaohs Ramses. The 2016 title is a typical Bally Wulff affair with decent visuals and generic sounds that more belong to land-based slot machines than to modern online video slots. It uses 5 reels and can be played at either 5 or 10 paylines. Just like another title from the developer, Asena, the slot offers a free spins feature with a bonus symbol selected at random that expands and pays prizes scattered.
The Ramses Book slot uses a strong Egyptian theme with symbols represented by Ramses himself, obelisks, Bastet and Horus statues and flowers awarding high-value prizes. The rest of the reels are populated with playing card suits – clubs, spades, hearts and diamonds. The top paying symbol is the great pharaoh himself awarding 5,000 coins for 5 symbols of a kind. His book serves as Wild and Scatter at the same time and awards a prize of up to 2,000 coins.
Before you set off on an adventure to reveal ancient secrets, choose your bet that can be anywhere between $0.05 and $6 per spin, which depends on the number of paylines you activate and a coin value you choose. Once you have adjusted your bet, push the Spin button. The Max Bet and Autoplay options are also available allowing you to set your bet to the max value immediately and activate automatic spins that will play until you stop them. To start winning prizes, you have to land at least 2 or 3 matching symbols on an active payline left to right.
The book symbol will complete your winning combinations and if you land 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels, you will unlock the free spins feature. Before 10 free games start, one of the regular symbols will be chosen at random to represent a bonus symbol within the feature. This means that if at least 2 or 3 bonus symbols land anywhere on the grid, they will expand and create a winning combination even if they are not on adjacent reels.
The Gamble feature is also available and you can use your winnings to play the Card or Ladder Game to increase them. This will definitely add more excitement to the gameplay, but keep in mind that you can lose the money you have won as well.
Ramses Book is a game of medium volatility with an RTP of 96.15%. We have to say that there is nothing inventive about it as its bonus game is a clone of free spins features available in slot games like Book of Ra, Book of Dead or previously mentioned Asena. However, the top payout of 50,000 coins and free spins featuring expanding bonus symbols are reasons enough to give it a spin or two.
