On 29 January 2014 Novoamtic launched yet another Egypt themed slot machine game called Dynasty of Ra. In essence, the core features of the successful Book of Ra Slots Series were kept and used. This game uses 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines or winlines.
In terms of visuals, there are slight differences, the background and menu use dark colors. Win symbols are still colorful and shiny with golden borders. Dynasty of Ra uses a wide range of symbols, 10, J, Q, K, A as lower value symbols. High-value symbols are: the Abacus (Egyptian math calculator), the colorful necklace, the golden mask, the cat of Baast and queen Cleopatra herself.
The golden tablet with the eye-symbol of Ra also makes its appearance. This is the scatter symbol that substitutes for all other symbols and enables the free games or spins feature. The Free Spins feature stars when the player gets 3 or more scatter symbols on the screen.

The Dynasty of Ra slot game is available online at GreenTube and Novomatic licensed casinos such as Casumo, Energy, Quasar and others. A free playable version is not available at this time.
The rules of the game are simple, the player starts with setting bet value and bet lines. Pressing the start button begins the spin process. Based on the 96% RTP rate the machine will determine the outcome of the spin. If a win happens the amount won can be doubled based on cards. Two cards are shown face down, the player has to get the right card, red or black. If the player gets the right card this same gambling process can be repeated 4 more times.

Video Recorded While Playing Dynasty of Ra
The land or offline version of the game has the paytable shown above the screen like most slot machine games. All other features are identical with the online version.
As the attached video shows, the sound and feeling the game manages to project is quite authentic and similar to the Book of Ra Deluxe version.
Fans of ancient themed video slots will love Dynasty of Ra. The win potential is pretty high considering the included features. During the 1 minute, 40 seconds of video the player managed to get the above mentioned Free Games feature and started the 10 free spins.
The wins during free spins in Dynasty of Ra add up, and even more Free Games can be activated. The process does last a while, but it is very rewarding, often resulting in the player winning massive amounts.
While the similarities between Dynasty and Book of Ra are clear the game can still appeal to hardcore fans. However, we often feel that it is an incomplete game or a different skin for the Book of Ra slot. We would like to see more diverse features in upcoming Novomatic games. For example extra reels, more features.
The sounds, symbols and designs are however very likable. The game manages to provide a genuine ancient themed slot game feeling. For this reason we will give it a 7 ot of 10 score.
