Daring Dave & the Eye of Ra Online Slots
Many online slots developers seem to have a tendency to create games with an Egyptian theme and Daring Dave & the Eye of Ra is another in a succession of reel spinning options that take players back to the time of pyramids, pharaohs and the construction of the Sphinx.
Playtech has taken this Egyptian theme one step further and created Daring Dave & the Eye of Ra, an online video slot that follows the intrepid journey of an explorer who sets out on a quest to find the elusive Eye of Ra.
Egyptian Themed Online Slots
Predictably, Daring Dave & the Eye of Ra has an Egyptian theme running throughout and the reels are set atop of a backdrop that features pyramids, palm trees and rolling sandy hills.
The games lower value playing card symbols have a suitably Egyptian style look and feel, although they certainly couldn’t be described as hieroglyphic. All higher value symbols are in keeping with the theme and a variety of Egyptian gods, Daring Dave himself, the Eye of Ra and the pyramids are all present.
Expanding Wilds and Scatters
Daring Dave is the Daring Dave & the Eye of Ra online slots game’s Wild symbol and will stand in for all others to create a winning combination. Dave however cannot replace the Scatter, so unfortunately he can’t complete a combination that requires one of these symbols. If Dave lands on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time he will expand to cover all 5 reels, increasing players chances of winning big dramatically.
The Scatter symbol is the Eye of Ra and multipliers are awarded according to how many of these symbols are displayed on the reels. 1 Scatter rewards players with a 2x multiplier, 3 with 5x, 4 x25 and 5 with a whopping x125.
3 Stage Bonus Feature
The pyramid bonus symbol will activate the Quest for the Eye of Ra Bonus feature when it appears simultaneously on reels 1 and 5. This quest has 3 levels and once a task is completed, players progress to the next stage. The further you progress, the closer you get to the Eye of Ra and a bonus payout.
In Episode 1 of the Daring Dave & the Eye of Ra bonus feature players are presented with 8 stones, with only 3 bearing the Eye of Ra symbol. Players who manage to predict which 3 stones the symbol appears on will progress to level 2.
When Episode 2 is activated players will face an ancient wheel, which will give them 3 free spins. At the end of every spin a prize will be awarded and if the pointer lands on the Eye of Ra symbol it will light up. When all 3 of the required pointers are lit, a player will advance to the next level.
In episode 3 players are presented with a massive statue of Ra, the Egyptian sun god. A choice between 3 pedestals must be made and one of these will lead you to the Eye of Ra, the others to cash prizes. If you correctly predict the pedestal that leads to the Eye of Ra, you’ll be rewarded with 75x your stake.
Player’s progress is always recorded by the Daring Dave & the Eye of Ra online slots game, so when you login again you’ll pick up from where you left off, rather than having to start from scratch.
