This game comes in light with only two bonus features. The Wild Reels are present in the base game and free spins round.
Coin Collect Meters with two slots sit above each reel. When you land coin symbols, be collected in the meters, and once you fill both slots the reel below will become fully wild for 2 spins.
If you land 3 scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5, you will be given 3 bonus round options to choose from.
The high volatility option gives you 2 free spins and 3 guaranteed wild reels per spin. If you choose medium volatility, you will get 8 free spins and 2 guaranteed wild reels per spin. Selecting the low volatility option awards, you 25 free spins and 1 guaranteed wild reel per spin. During the bonus round, the Wild Reels can land in different positions on each spin, and you can retrigger the feature if 3 more scatters land.
Playing the Game
You only need an intermediary knowledge of online slots to fully enjoy Ark of Ra. The gameplay is straightforward with easy betting, Autoplay and a quick spin option. Things get a bit more advanced when you trigger free spins when understanding how the different volatility options will affect your game.
Ark of Ra is a solid slot, but it doesn’t make much of a splash for an industry debut. The game features striking visuals and an exotic soundtrack that sets the mood. The Wild Reels feature rescues the base game from mediocrity with occasional large wins and it shows its full potential in the bonus round. A maximum win of $200 000 is possible from a single spin. As Circular Arrow’s first title, this is a competent and enjoyable game, but if the studio plans on making an impact, it might have to be a bit more adventurous in future.
