Considered the greatest Pharaoh of all time, the revered Ramses II, or Ramses the Great, ruled over his people as the third King of the Nineteenth Dynasty.
Bursting out of his coffin thousands of years later, the mummified deity is reborn as the star in Relax Gaming’s October 2020 release, Ramses Revenge - and he’s seeking revenge.
But upon whom exactly? Have more tomb raiders pillaged the most sacred of burial chambers?
All will become clear after a few spins of the reels of this refreshingly modern take on an age old slot theme, complete with 5 reels and 5 rows.
So prepare to grab your touch and head down into the last resting place of one of antiquity’s most famous leaders to reap rewards worth up to 50,000x.
The developer invite us to delve deep into sacred territory in our quest for hidden riches. The overall look of the game is reassuringly Relax Gaming. Like other titles in their back catalogue, the action unfolds from a birds eye view, set in a courtyard among the grounds of the Pyramids of Giza.
In a modern-day Egyptian twist, the game’s sharp 3D graphics are presented in a distinctly cartoonish style, with hieroglyph-inscribed pillars flanking the playing area and torches providing the only source of light. Contributing to the relaxing vibe is a soothing audio track humming away in the background. It all begins to hot up once the reels turn, however.
Scan the paytable to discover the game’s symbols, comprising iconic Gods of the era like Horus, Sobek, Anubis and naturally, Ramses himself, as the premiums. The star of the show doles out the biggest wins here, equivalent to 4x your wager for 6 of a kind.
Gameplay & Features
There’s nothing too unconventional about the gameplay in Ramses Revenge. Simply land identical symbols across 3 or more adjacent reels from the left outer reel to reel in a win.
Mystery Sandstorm Feature
This beneficial bolt-on can enter the fray at random points throughout the game, setting off 2-6 sandstorms that leave a trail of between 1-4 mystery symbols in their wake. Once the air has cleared, the randomly placed mystery symbols are then uncovered to reveal the same matching symbol.
Your trusted sidekick, the somewhat juvenile looking Explorer, is your key to Free Spins. Help yourself to 6 whenever 2 or more of the chap show up on the reels, prompting tiles to shatter and the reels to tumble down into a hidden chamber.
A pair of Sticky Wild Mummies then appear from nowhere and assume the place of the Explorers that triggered the feature. As Wilds they also step in for all other regular symbols, while locking in place throughout all Free Spins.
Should new Explorer Wilds show up, one Mummy will takes their place and provide you with one extra free spin in the process. That Mummy’s own multiplier value also increases by 1x, and values get multiplied together if ever two or more Mummies contribute to the same winning combo.
Feeling restless? You can gain instant access to Ramses' final resting place by shelling out the equivalent of 80x your bet. The round then plays out with the same RTP as if the feature was to drop organically.
Ramses Revenge on Mobile
No matter how you like to play Ramses Revenge, you’ll get the same enjoyable gaming experience and polished visuals across all modern portable devices.
The game’s lightweight appearance belies its volatile nature, demanding a healthy dose of patience if you’re to land upon the game’s richest prizes. That’s if you don’t choose to trigger the Bonus Buy feature, in exchange for 80x your stake.
Ramses Revenge marks a welcome departure from most Egyptian-themed games that dominate the slot market, making use of some cute graphics to keep players entertained throughout their mission.
The game packs a bunch of features to go with an elevated payout potential, but its high volatility score is likely to alienate the slot crowd content with a steady stream of more modest returns.
That said, the appearance of mummies in the bonus round, and constantly startled appearance of the explorer, make for a highly amusing journey through the ancient lands of Egypt.
