Introducing the Ramses’ Revenge slot
Ramses’ Revenge is the new slot from the developers at Relax Gaming, you may not already know that the name Ramses is usually how Ramses 11, the 3rd pharaoh of the 19th dynasty is referred to. He is also known as Ramses the great as he is said to be the greatest pharaoh of all time. In between fighting and defeating North Africa and Syria, he kept busy building incredible structures, and there are statues of Ramses that have remind intact to this very day.
Ramses unsurprisingly is the star of this Egyptian themed slot, and you will see the mummified royal seeking revenge on a helpless explorer who has desecrated his tomb. If you feel that this slot is going to go easy on you then do not be fooled, although it is understandable when you see the symbols on your 5x5 playing grid that you may think that the title has been chosen to attract attention with the title. You would be forgiven for thinking that this is a sweet slot, but it will try to have its revenge on you. So, if you ready to take on Ramses’ Revenge, read on.
Theme & Design
When it comes to the design it is easy do you see that this slot comes from the developers at Relax Gaming. You may find yourself thinking of slots such as Snake Arena and Marching Legions as they show a Birds Eye view of all the action. However, in this slot the playing grid is located within a ramshackle courtyard surrounded by columns with various hieroglyphics and a stone floor. There is a heavy yet soothing Arabic soundtrack which provides a relaxing ambiance as the slot begins to unfold.
Ramses’ Revenge is available to play on all devices and offers players a bet range that starts from a minimum of 10p per spin up to a maximum of £20 per spin. The return to player stands at 96.5% which is slightly above average. The high volatility makes you realise that when you play this slot anything can happen. From the base game up to the bonus game, your balance can rise and fall and within seconds the game can move from one direction to another.
The developers of this slot have made an incredibly good choice by using the 4,096 ways to win giving players the opportunity to form winning combinations. The rows in the slot are irrelevant and providing you land three or more of the same symbols starting from your left to right reels you will be rewarded. When your symbols begin to create lines, they begin to sink into the games floor which then makes it easy to see which ones are winning and which are not. Whilst this may only be a small detail it is handy and prevents your screen from becoming cluttered with symbols.
Symbols & Pay Outs
When it comes to the symbols you can expect to come across compact designs that look like collectible game tokens. There are eight regular pay symbols, and these are split into four lower paying and four higher paying. The higher paying symbols are represented by the gods Anubis, Sobek, Horace, with Ramses at the top. These four will reward you with 1.5x to 4x your stake when you manage to land 6 of a kind. Whilst this may not be a huge amount the pay mechanic will assist you as well the wild multipliers which come into play during the bonus.
For a lot of your gaming time there is not that much that will happen with regards to the features. The mystery sandstorms feature is available during the base game, however the jewel of the Nile and the free spins with roaming multiplier wilds a slightly more elusive.
On any of your base game spins you can randomly activate the mystery sandstorm feature. If you do you will see that 2 to 6 waves will occur, and during these waves 1 to 4 mystery symbols can bear down on your wheels and all the mystery symbols then change to reveal the same matching symbol.
The most exciting play must be the free spins round. Here you will be keeping your fingers crossed for the explorer symbols as you only need to land 2 in view to be rewarded with 6 free spins. Before your free spin feature begins, there are two mummies that make their way out of the tomb and take the place of the two explorers that have activated the feature. These mummies are wild and can replace any of the other symbols to create a winning combination. It is worth noting that the Wilds will only ever make an appearance in this game during the free spins.
Once you have landed the new Explorer Wilds, the mummy that is closest will move in to take its place, and when it does an extra spin is awarded and the multiplier of this mummy will increase by one. If you land more explorers than you have mummies in view, additional mummies will be added to your reels. If more than one mummy creates a win the values will be multiplied instead of being added, and there can result in four active mummies on your reels at any one time.
If you find but you do not want to wait and play through the base game to land the bonus you can skip this out altogether. Where available the developers have included the feature buy function, however this does not come cheap and will cost you 80x your stake. When you activate the feature buy, two scatters will land on your first spin therefore activating the free spins feature. It is worth noting here that the return to player remains the same as it does in the default mode and does not increase in the way some competitor slots do.
Rameses revenge is an excellent slot that contains several surprises. The first must be how rough this slot can be considering its appearance. You will need to be patient to get to the good parts, and you cannot wait you can use the bonus buy to get things going quicker although this is not a guarantee of success.
When I trialled this game, I found that little happened in my first 250 spins, I did land a couple of 30x wins but had to wait for the features to kick in. When they did the initial bonus game was certainly worth waiting for. Even just activating 2 wandering multiplier wilds is highly effective, this is providing they wander onto the right positions! The bonus rounds overall were as temperamental as all the play in this game, some were extremely good while others were weak however I did score a win of over 900x my stake during one of my bonus buys.
The free spins were interesting thanks to the mummies multiplying each other, up to x6 and this amidst several high pays can lead to some serious mayhem. Add the third multiplier wild and things get hectic, however, this dynamic really suits the 4096 ways to win.
I really enjoyed playing this slot and found that the gaming experience can be as frustrating as it can be celebratory. It is an enjoyable game which is certainly different from others currently available and I urge you to give this slot a spin or two, as you may find that the rewards are certainly worth the wait.
