There are certainly no shortage of Ancient Egyptian-themed slots on the net. Countless titles can be played, and every developer worth their salt seems to have had a crack at the popular theme at some time or another. Now, Blueprint Gaming are giving it a run for its money, with the adaptation of their Legacy of Ra slot, we now have Legacy of Ra Megaways™.
Most of the imagery which appears on the reels of the game will be second nature to any lover of these slots. You’ve got Anubis and Horus, scarab beetles and the customary pyramid symbols also present on the reels. An adventurer is also present, as you are likely to find in rival developers’ titles. It all very fitting stuff from Blueprint, and certainly makes for an interesting take on the genre.
How does Legacy of Ra Megaways™ stand out from both other Megaways™ slots and Ancient Egyptian-themed titles out there on the net? Find out with our Legacy of Ra Megaways™ slot review.

HOW TO PLAY LEGACY OF RA MEGAWAYS™
3 OR MORE BONUS SYMBOLS WILL TRIGGER THE FREE SPIN FEATURE ON LEGACY OF RA MEGAWAYS™
Whilst Blueprint Gaming have used the Megaways™ gaming engine from Big Time Gaming for this release, they have chosen not to implement the full one hundred thousand-plus engine. In fact, while the number of lines you get certainly trump anything found in most slot games on the net, at up to 15,625 they are far short of the usual number seen in Megaways™ games. Even so, spinning the 6 reels on this slot is cheap and affordable for all players, with bets ranging from €0.10 up to €10 a game.
While spinning the reels of this slot, you may come across wild symbols. These take the shape of pyramids. When they appear, they can substitute for any symbol you may need to land a win, except for scatter icons. Wilds do not dish out jackpot prizes though. Instead, the explorer is the best-paying icon in the game, capable of delivering wins worth up to £25,000 when she appears 6 times on adjacent reels.
LEGACY OF RA MEGAWAYS™ BONUS ROUND AND ADDITIONAL FEATURES
HIT A REEL EXPANSION WITH YOUR SYMBOL AND WIN BIG WITH THE MEGAWAYS™ GAMING ENGINE
The scatter symbols are used to trigger free spins, although players can take a shortcut if they wish. The Ra Bonus bet can be purchased by players (at a hefty fee), although it does provide instant free spin action. Given the cost (up to 100x your bet), it could be considered better to go the long way around.
Players will start Legacy of Ra MegaWays™ free spin feature with 10, 15, 25 or 50 free games if they land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters. A symbol is chosen at random for this round, and that icon can expand when it appears on the reels, which makes winning a touch easier. Additional scatters carve up further free spins to add to your tally
OUR CONCLUSION ON LEGACY OF RA MEGAWAYS™
The free game feature in Legacy of Ra Megaways™ is essentially the same one you will find in Novomatic’s Book of Ra, and Play ‘n Go’s Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead. These are two of the most successful Ancient Egyptian slots out there, so players can consider Legacy of Ra to be an amalgamation of them both, albeit with the Megaways™ payline structure in play.
