The symbols in Legacy of Ra Megaways are stunning especially if you’re into the Book of Ra slots of Novomatic. The theme and the symbols are almost identic to the original version. This brings back good memories, unless you never had luck on any Book of Ra slots. Remarkably the explorer symbol is a woman in Legacy of Ra Megaways, while it’s a man in the original series. The explorer has by far the most value and is worth 25x the size of your bet if you manage to hit 6 of them (1 on each reel).
In Legacy of Ra Megaways it’s all about the expanding symbols which only happen in the bonus game. The base game is quite average. However, it’s always exciting when the explorer symbol pop up into your screen. Especially when you manage to connect them. Besides that, there is not much happening. With the amount of Megaways there is still some potential in the base game, but when you’re playing Legacy of Ra Megaways, you can’ wait to hit the bonus game.

The bonus is where the real excitement begins. The bonus game in Legacy of Ra is an exciting one to get. The potential is huge since the bonus game will have expanding symbols. You probably already know what expanding symbols are since you will also find this feature in the classic Book of Ra slots. Before the bonus game starts, you will get a random expanding symbol which could be any symbol. This special symbol will expand in the bonus game. If you hit at least 2 explorer symbols or at least 3 other symbols, no matter on which reel, they will expand and cover the whole reel. An exciting and unique feature in Megaways slots which is worth seeing. You win the bonus game in Legacy of Ra Megaways by hitting 3 books (scatter symbols). Remarkably this Megaways slot doesn’t have any wild symbols.
The bonus game in Legacy of Ra Megaways may be difficult to hit. If your balance allows it, you can choose to buy the bonus feature in Legacy of Ra Megaways. Buying the bonus feature will cost you 100x the size of your bet. When you play on a €/$/£ 2 stake, it will cost you €/$/£ 200. An expensive way to get into the bonus game so this isn’t something we would advise to do. The bonus game is amazing and we understand you want to see the bonus game, but we strongly believe that playing the base game is the way to go. While playing the base game you’re also wagering and you might be able to see the bonus game without paying 100x the size of your bet. When you hit 3 books you will get 10 free spins for the bonus game. If you manage to hit more books, you will be awarded with more free spins.
Due to the latest changes in regulation the bonus buy feature isn’t available anymore in the UK.
Legacy of Ra Megaways doesn’t have many extra features and thus can be seen as a pretty standard Megaways slot like Valletta Megaways is. The teasers when you’re hitting 2 books is quite exciting. In Legacy of Ra Megaways it’s all about the bonus game, so a tease is always good fun. But, the bonus game is what makes Legacy of Ra Megaways a fun slot to play. Especially where your special symbol is being selected. A premium symbol makes it even more exciting, so that is what you’re hoping for to get.
Are you about to wager a bonus? Then don’t pick Legacy of Ra Megaways since it’s not a good wager slot at all. Legacy of Ra is a very volatile slot which can give you big wins, but also can give almost nothing in return and that’s not what you want when wagering a bonus. There are much better online slots out there to wager your bonus on.

The answer is yes, Legacy of Ra Megaways have a huge potential. The amount of Megaways are limited, no cascading symbols and no unlimited multiplier, but there is still a huge potential in this Megaways slot. If you have ever played Book of Ra or Book(Novomatic) of Dead (Play ’n Go) you know the bonus game can pay. Even a full explorer line can pay a lot of money. If you’re a big fan of the book series, you’re always hoping to get the explorer symbol as the expanding symbol in the bonus game. The dream is to hit 4 or 5 expanding explorer symbols. Imagine hitting 4 or 5 explorer symbols in Legacy of Ra combined with a lot of Megaways. That’s going to be huge! Until the day of today we’re still hoping for this miracle.
The bonus game is awesome, but don’t get attempted to buy the bonus game in Legacy of Ra Megaways. Buying the bonus game is expensive (100x the size of your bet) and winning big in the bonus game is fairly difficult. This means you won’t get your money back in most of the bonuses you buy.
Play with a bet size of 1% of your total balance. For example, if you deposit €/$/£ 200, then you shouldn’t play with bets higher than €/$/£ 2.
Always play responsible and set limits for yourself. If you exceed these limits, consider taking a break from online gambling.
