Legacy of Ra Megaways Slot Review
Legacy of Ra Megaways from Blueprint Gaming is exactly what you would expect from the name: a cross between Book of Ra and a Megaways slot. Now Book of Ra is already known for the sky-high possible payouts and Megaways slots can pay out a lot. Then you would expect a cross between the two concepts to pay out astronomical amounts, right? Well, then you're absolutely right. Legacy of Ra cannot pay out up to 50,000 x your total bet during the free spins bonus.
How to play at Legacy of Ra Megaways Slot?
Legacy of Ra has 6 reels, which have a different number of rows of symbols each spin per reel. This can create a maximum of 15,625 Megaways. You can bet from 0.10 per spin, up to a maximum of 10 per spin. The variance of Legacy of Ra is extremely high, making this a very risky slot to play. You can win a lot of money on it, but on the other hand, the risk of losing all your money is also very high. The theoretical payout percentage in the base game is 96.01%. If you use the Buy a Bonus option, the RTP will skyrocket to 97.01%. Keep in mind that the maximum win is 250,000 per bonus round.
Symbols and Payouts
Legacy of Ra has an Egyptian adventurer theme, just like the original Book of Ra slot. Only the male Indiana Jones-like figure has been replaced by an equally tough lady. This lady pays 25 x the total bet with a 6-of-a-kind. The typical Egyptian symbols are the premium symbols, which pay out between 2.5 x and 5 x the bet with 6 of the same. The low paying symbols consist of the card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A and are worth between 1 x and 1.5 x the bet, if you know 6 to spin the same. Furthermore, there is a wild symbol, which substitutes for all symbols except the scatters.
Legacy of Ra Megaways Free spins bonus
The Legacy of Egypt symbol is the scatter symbol, which should activate the free spins bonus. 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will give you 10, 15, 25 or 50 free spins respectively. During the free spins, the well-known special symbol is active: it expands over the entire reel. If you manage to spin the special symbol on each reel, you have a full screen with the same symbol and the money flows in.
It is possible to retrigger the free spins indefinitely.
Ra Bonus Bet
It is possible to directly access the free spins bonus. You do this by clicking on the Ra Bonus Bet and pressing the green arrow. That will cost you 100 x the total bet and a small warning is in order. Due to the high variance of this slot, it is only natural that you can sometimes win a lot of money during the free spins bonus, but much more often you will only get a fraction of your total bet back. So use this Ra Bonus Bet in moderation and we actually recommend using it only with small bets, or if you have big wins.
What do we think of Legacy of Ra Megaways?
Blueprint Gaming has once again managed to make a fantastic Megaways slot. We expect Legacy of Ra to be successful and there will also be the necessary extremely large profits on YouTube and other media channels. It is a slot with an extremely high variance and you have to be able to handle that.
