Play Ra and The Scarab Temple slots for free or real money
Ancient Egypt is a hugely popular theme in the online gaming world, exploited multiple times by most developers out there. But don't dismiss another one joining the show before you check whether it brings something new to the table. Bally's Ra & The Scarab Temple will try to win you over with Radiating Wilds, an offer to pick your own free games round, and an opportunity to win the Red Envelope Jackpot. Is all that motivating enough to give it a try? Let’s see!
The game plays on a 5x4 reel area with 40 paylines. Golden scarab, pharaoh, eye of Ra, Ankh, golden ring and multi-coloured ornament are high-value symbols paying as of two-of-a-kind, while 3 or more 10 to Ace playing card icons landing on consecutive reels deliver smaller amounts. Golden scarab does the job of a regular substitute symbol, and Scattered pot filled with golden coins acts as a Bonus icon. Using a single button, players can easily set their bet between €0.55 and €275 per spin.
Each of the five reels contains stacked Mystery Symbol positions which will be replaced with one random regular icon before spinning starts. You won't actually see this magic happen, but since all Mystery positions are replaced by the same icon, it will create stacks which can increase your winning chances.
There are two special symbols designed as red envelops, one leaning to the left and the other to the right. Before each spin, left red envelope could be added to reel 1 and its sibling to reel 5. Should the two show up at the same time, you'll win the Red Envelope Jackpot. Watermarked symbols appearing on both envelopes substitute for the respective regular icon.
If you see a part of Obelisk anywhere on the reels, brace yourself for the Radiating Wilds feature which makes that particular symbol as well as the ones to its left and right all transform into Wilds. Bonus symbol becomes a Wild Bonus and both envelopes turn into Wild Envelope.
To launch free games, you'll have to land a minimum of 3 Scattered Bonus symbols or Wild Bonus symbols on the three middle reels. Either combination will award 5x your total bet and offer 4 different spins-multiplier combos to pick from. You can opt for 6 spins with all payouts boosted x5, 10 spins with a x3 multiplier, 15 free games with a multiplier of x2, or go for the maximum number of 30 spins which will play without a multiplier. Landing the triggering combination one more time pays 5x the total stake again and adds 5 Free Spins, no matter which of the above scenarios you have initially selected.

Players betting on Ra & The Scarab Temple can count on the long-term return of 95.85%. As far as individual line wins go, one should be hoping for 3 Scatters which will pay 5x the total stake or up to €1,375. The Obelisk landing fully visible on the second reel will make reels 1, 2 and 3 fully Wild and very likely produce more than a decent payout. Red Envelope Jackpot delivers €100 if you are betting the minimum €0.55 per spin and as much as €50,000 for an investment of €275 per round.
