Ark of Ra Online Pokie
Ancient Egyptian mythology is the name of the game in this online pokies game which honours Ra the sun god. Following on the successes of Age of Conquest and Augustus, Ark of Ra is Microgaming associate Circular Arrow’s latest conquest that riffs on the theme of Egyptian folklore and legend. Ark of Ra is compatible with all devices, so whether you want to play on your smartphone or while relaxing at home on your desktop, the choice is yours at Spin Casino! Take a perilous journey into the musty maze of candlelit corridors below Ra’s temple where you’ll discover among many other treasures, the Ark of Ra, a giant chest of gold and precious jewels. Fortune favours the brave and you’ll need it in buckets if you’re to stake your claim to the riches Ra has left behind. Prepare to be challenged but potentially handsomely rewarded with a unique Coin Collect Meter and a selection round that gives you three options for your own combinations of Free Spins and Wild Reels.
Theme and gameplay basics
This latest addition to the genre of ancient Egypt-themed casino games is set inside an opulent courtyard in the temple of Ra with two mythical sculptures standing guard and the pyramids of Giza in the background. The setup is a 5x3 grid with 20 paylines and you’ll need to combine three or more symbols from left to right to reap the generous rewards on offer.
Begin your noble quest by setting your bet level from as little as 0.20 coins to a maximum stake of 200 coins per spin. If you don’t adjust the settings, the default bet is 2 coins which may or may not be suitable for you. When you’re ready, press the spin button and wait for the reels to grind into action. If you’d prefer to learn your way around our casino games before risking any money, demo mode lets you spin for free while you learn how to play the game.
Symbols and payouts
Symbolism has always been central to Egyptian culture and is equally significant in Ark of Ra. Like with many pokies, the low-pay symbols are the face cards of A, K, Q and J. However, in keeping with the lost raiders theme, they are covered with gold, rubies, emeralds and sapphires respectively. Pillage for prizes from 25x for three-of-a-kind up to 200x if you land 5 A’s or K’s symbols in a horizontal line.
The high-value symbols in Ark of Ra are more closely aligned with the mythological theme. These include a golden ankh, Eye of Horus, dog, hawk, Anubis and of course almighty Ra himself. Anubis and Ra are the top-paying symbols in this mobile casino game which can both stack high on the reels, paying up to 1,500x for a set of five. The papyrus scroll wilds substitute for any other symbol except for the Ra Scatter and Coin Collect symbol, which is a scarab disk.
Bonuses and special features
Built into Ark of Ra are special features that can light up your screen with some big pays! What sets this game apart from many others at Spin Casino is the Coin Collect Meter. When a coin lands on a base reel, it gets added to the meter above. It takes 2 coins to fill the meter and trigger the Wild Reel Feature, which makes all positions on that reel wild for two spins. Even better, if three Scatters appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, you’ll unlock the Free Spins selection round where you get the chance to see the actual Ark of Ra. In this Free Spins round, you must weigh up the odds and choose from three delightful bonus options which are 25 Free Spins + 1 Wild Reel, 8 Free Spins + 2 Wild Reels or 2 Free Spins + 3 Wild Reels.
