Ramses Revenge: Slot Overview

Relax Gaming don't explicitly state this in the game, but the name Ramses usually refers to Ramses II, the third Pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty. He was also known as Ramses the Great on account of being considered the greatest Pharaoh of all time. In between hammering Syria and North Africa, the guy kept busy building some of the most incredible structures of ancient times. Statues of Ramses have survived remarkably intact down to modern times; his impressively goateed visage recreated countless times over.


This time he stars in Relax Gaming's Egyptian themed slot Ramses’ Revenge. The mummified royal is seeking payback on a hapless explorer for ransacking his tomb. When you see the wee sprites populating the 5x5 grid, you might think the name is just a catchy title. However, Ramses’ Revenge is no walk in the park. It might appear sweet, but the game can bite, or in this case, get revenge. The saving grace is the free spins, which are a lot more potent than they might first appear.


On the topic of appearance, Ramses’ Revenge has a strongly familiar Relax Gaming look to it. Titles like Snake Arena and Marching Legions with its bird's eye view of the action come to mind. In this case, the grid sits in a crumbing courtyard surrounded by columns, stone flooring, and smatterings of hieroglyphics. A sleepy Arabic soundtrack meanders away producing a relaxing feel, as the onscreen exploits unfold.


Ramses gets his revenge on any device, offering bets from 20 p/c to £/€40 per spin. While RTP is slightly above average on 96.15%, in the short term the high volatility ensures anything can happen. From base game grinds to bonus games that occasionally fire off a big one out of nowhere, the game can swing in all directions.


Relax made the agreeable choice of using a 4,096 win ways system for players to form combinations. Rows are irrelevant, so as long as three or more identical symbols are adjacent from the leftmost reel you’ve got a winner. In another nice touch, when symbols start to line up, they become indented by sinking into the floor, so you can see exactly which ones are winning or not. A small thing, but handy nonetheless and much cleaner than the way Red Tiger handle things for example, who completely clutter the screen with their payline count-ups.


The symbols used have a compact icon-y look reminiscent of collectable game tokens. There are eight regular pay symbols, split into four low pay patterns, and high pay gods. The high pays include Anubis, Sobek, Horus, and Ramses at the top. This four are worth payouts of 1.5 to 4 times the bet in combinations of six of a kind. Not huge, yet the pay mechanic helps, as do wild multipliers during the bonus.


Ramses Revenge: Slot Features
There are 2 potentially exciting bonus features on offer in the Ramses’ Revenge slot. They offer mystery symbols and free spins with expanding multiplier wilds.


Mystery Sandstorm feature

The Mystery Sandstorm feature can trigger at random on any spin. A sandstorm blows across the screen, dropping between 1 and 4 mystery symbols onto the reels. You can get up to 6 waves of sandstorms in all. When the storm has blown out, all the mystery symbols will transform into the same matching symbol. A new payout calculation is made with the newly transformed in position.



Free Spins feature

The Free Spins feature is triggered by landing 2 explorer scatter symbols on the same spin. You’ll start with 6 free spins but there are plenty of opportunities to add to that total.


To begin, 2 mummies will drop onto the reels and take up the positions where the triggering explorer scatters appeared. These mummies are wild. The free spins then begin. If a new explorer scatter lands, the mummy moves to that position. 1 extra free spin is added to your total and 1 is added to the wild multiplier for that mummy. If you’re lucky enough to land both mummy wilds in the same winner, the values of their multipliers are combined.


If you land more explorers than there are mummies, extra mummies are added. For example, say you had 2 mummies in play and then landed 3 explorer scatters. An extra wild mummy would be added as well as extra free spins and increases to the wild multiplier.


In some territories, you’ll have the option to buy your way into the Free Spins feature. This will set you back 80 x your total stake.






Ramses Revenge: Slot Verdict

Ramses’ Revenge is a game that contains few surprises. The first is how rough the game can be, belying its cute sprite-based appearance. It can be tough going, requiring patience to get to the good parts, or you can leap into the bonus buy to fast track things along - though this is no guarantee of success.


Not a lot happened for the first 300 spins or so. There were a couple of circa 30x wins to help stay alive, yet the rest was pretty so-so for a while. The first bonus game was an eye-opener though. Even just two wandering multiplier wilds proved to be quite effective, providing they wandered into the right positions. Overall, bonus rounds proved to be as temperamental as the rest of the game. Some were weak; some were unexpectedly good. During one of our bonus buys, however, we managed to score a win of almost 1,000x.


What makes the free spins round particularly interesting is the way mummies multiply each other, giving it a strong resemblance to Jammin' Jars in a strange way. An x4 and an x6 for example, in the midst of several high pays, can cause some serious mayhem. Drop a third wild multiplier in and things can really get hectic. This dynamic well suits the 4,096 ways to win system. Ramses’ Revenge can be unforgiving enough as it is, with fixed paylines, it might have been heart-breaking.


In some ways, Ramses’ Revenge ended up playing out like Relax Gaming's Marching Legions. Like that one, free spins can go nuts, piling on multipliers and wins like there's no tomorrow. Then again, it can be equally as frustrating. Ramses’ Revenge is an enjoyable game, a little different, provoking emotional responses which seem out of odds with its lightweight looks.
