ALL ABOUT BLAZE OF RA SLOT
Of the big releases from Push Gaming in 2018 it was most probably Tiki Tumble and Fat Rabbit that created the biggest buzz and set this London-based studio on the road to slot stardom.
But we shouldn’t forget Blaze of Ra either – a top quality Egyptian-themed slot that uses a similar gameplay to Tiki Tumble and can drive similarly exciting spin sequences and chances to win big.
Ra is the ancient God of the Sun, a pretty important deity to the Egyptians of course. And Push Gaming pay tribute with a slot featuring their usual high production values – excellent graphics and animations built on HTML5 that looks sharp on all devices.
Let’s find out more …
Blaze of Ra Game Set Up
Blaze of Ra is a five reel and four row game just like Tiki Tumble. But Blaze has not 20, but 40 paylines, paying left to right for identical symbols. The slot can be played from 20p to £100 per spin, and has an RTP of 96.4%.
The artwork here is really excellent, with the God Ra standing to the left of the reels. All the symbols are looking sharp and the animations are really slick.
Blaze of Ra Game Symbols
There are ten basic symbols in the game. The low value ones are the cards Jack, Queen, King and Ace. The premium symbols are the pink flower, the 2 hieroglyphs, the cross, the dog and the cat. The latter is the top paying premium symbol at 8x for five on a payline.
Look out as well for the Ra symbol which is the Wild and substitutes for all others except the Scarab scatter which itself is needed to trigger the free spins bonus round.
The wild also pays 20x for five in a payline.
Blaze of Ra Features
You should watch out for these two features in the Blaze of Ra game:
Nudging Wilds – If any part of a stack of Ra wild symbols lands anywhere on the top two rows of the of any reel, then this triggers the Nudging Wilds feature. Re-spins occur during which the Ra stack will nudge down one position at a time until it drops off the bottom reel.
Fans of Tiki Tumble will be familiar with this feature.
Free Spins Feature –You need to land three or more of the Scarab Beetle Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels in one spin to set off the free spins round.
This is how it works:
Each Scarab awards you with either 1 or 2 free spins, up to a total of 10 free spins. During the round, stacked wilds will appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, and every further scarab that lands will get you another free spin.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
If you’re a fan of Push Gaming and their new high variance direction then we’re pretty sure you’re going to enjoy Blaze of Ra. It deploys a similar mechanic to Tiki Tumble in the Nudging Wilds feature, and the stacked wilds in the free spins round are a great chance to win big. The top payout is just 2,000x, so not as high as other volatile slots we know, but this is definitely worth a spin or two.
