Links Of Ra Slots Review
It’s our favourite time of the day: slots hour, right here on the Royal Vegas blog! Today we’re going to tell you all about the new Links of Ra release, a new Slingshot Studios creation for Microgaming. Did we mention the possible 25,000x max win Grand Prize? No? Well don’t you worry, we’ll get to that in a second.
Links of Ra, as you may have guessed by the name, is inspired by Ancient Egypt and its mythology. A true sight for sore eyes, it’s packed with some signature Microgaming features, including Link&Win™ and Power Stacks™.
That’s not to discount the amazing symbol pays, which are a treat in themselves.
Available to play at Royal Vegas Online Casino Canada, on your choice of mobile or desktop, Links of Ra promises all sorts of adventure across 5x4 reels and 40 fixed paylines. A big boon? You’ll never sacrifice on quality, no matter which screen size you choose to play on.
Powered by Microgaming, this fact doesn’t surprise us all too much, because quality is something we’ve come to expect from this multi award-winning games giant. Whether they’re developing experiences for mobile casino screens, casino apps or even desktop play, they always give their best – and deliver on that quality promise we’ve come to know and love.
Graphics And Symbols
What jumped out at us first? Links of Ra’s out-of-this-world graphics. Ancient Egypt’s an incredibly popular theme when it comes to casino games. That isn’t a problem, because, well, hello… Ancient Egypt’s beyond cool. The issue becomes the graphics. They’re all too predictable nowadays. Until Links of Ra came along, that is.
Of course, the must-have elements are all there: pyramids, gods, golden sands. But it has a completely different atmosphere. We’re definitely getting elements of outer-space filtering through.
Besides its sci-fi overtones, Links of Ra players have hit the jackpot with a unique set of gods to look at while they play, too.
There's Anubis – who, okay, is quite well-known. You might recognise him as the jackal-headed deity. He's the god of the afterlife and mummification, a.k.a. embalming expert supreme.
Then you get Sekhmet, goddess of war. Head of a lion, body of a human, she's fierce and feisty, as expected.
Next is Sobek, a bit of a fluid god who can either emerge as a full-on crocodile, human or mix of both. Regardless of form, he's a ferocious character associated with both fertility and chaos.
Last is Khnum, also a god of fertility, but with the head of a ram.
Where do they all fit in? Ra, Anubis, Sekhmet, Sobek and Khnum make up the slot's high value symbols. They rank between the low value gems, and the special symbols: the game logo Wild and ankh Scatter.
Free Spins Feature
With a 2x Multiplier on all winning combinations, Links of Ra's Free Spins bonus is one to look out for. Triggered by 3 Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 you'll get 15 Free Spins, which aren't re-triggerable.
But, with Power Stacks™ and Link&Win™, who needs Free Spins Respins anyway?
The second epic bonus feature Links of Ra has in store? Power Stacks™, appearing at random. The effect? Super Stacked symbols added to all reels. Woah. We know. Cool. The only symbols that aren't stacked? Wilds and Scatters.
4 Link&Win™ Jackpots
A new feature that we're seeing more and more of in Microgaming slots, Link&Win™ is like a fixed jackpot bonus. Triggered by 6 sun symbols, Link&Win™ awards 3 free Respins in both the base game and Free Spins feature.
The sun symbols that triggered Link&Win™ stay in place for the whole feature. Added to this, whenever more sun symbols land, they stick in place too. And reset your Respins back to the original 3.
What kind of prizes can you expect? That depends on which sun symbols you get and whether you triggered Link&Win™ in the base game or during Free Spins.
For a chance at getting the Grand Prize, you'll need to fill all the reels with sun symbols. If you win the Grand Prize, the feature comes to an end, regardless of how many Respins you've played out at the time. You can also score the Mini, Minor or Major jackpot payouts. This happens when you get 20 sun symbols of each kind on the reels.
