Daring Dave and the Eye of Ra

The theme of Ancient Egypt is common in the world of online slots games, and this offering from Playtech is one of highest-quality games that we’ve seen yet. The game centres on an adventurer, Daring Dave, who resembles Indiana Jones and who is hunting for the eponymous Eye of Ra. Playtech’s signature online slots structure is seen throughout the game and ensures smooth functionality, while the theme of exploring and discovering Ancient Egyptian treasures is seen at every level as well.

The reels look as if they might be made of papyrus, and a landscape of sand and pyramids is depicted across the top of the screen. Traditional slots sounds are accompanied by an adventurer’s soundtrack, and the regular higher-value images are all centred on beautifully created Egyptian gods and hieroglyphic designs. As usual in a Playtech slots game the lower-value icons are all playing card symbols, but in Daring Dave and the Eye of Ra even these are linked to the theme and have a typically Egyptian font. Thrilling bonus features round off the detailed and satisfying gameplay.

Basic Gameplay

There are 5 reels and up to 20 paylines in Daring Dave and the Eye of Ra, which starts the betting range at 0.2 and takes it up to 40.00. The slots game’s theoretical RTP is an impressive 95.18%, and its base game’s Top Jackpot is 5000x the total stake. On the days when you are very bust it is possible to activate the AutoPlay feature. This will keep the reels turning by themselves while you carry on with other things at the same time, and we know that the busy players of today will appreciate this convenience.

Special Features

The Wild Symbol in the game is, fittingly enough, Daring Dave himself. He’ll replace any of the regular icons to make up winning combinations, helping to create a lot more payout possibilities for you. When he lands on Reels 2, 3 and 4 he expands to cover all positions, taking your winnings to even higher levels. The Scatter and Bonus Symbols are the only ones that the Wild can’t substitute for in Daring Dave and the Eye of Ra. The Scatter is the Eye of Ra, and triggers prizes whenever 2 are seen anywhere on the reels rather than just along activated paylines.

Daring Dave’s Bonus

The Bonus Symbol is a pyramid, and when this is seen anywhere on Reel 1 and Reel 5 at the same time the main bonus round, entitled The Quest for the Eye of Ra, is launched. There are 3 levels to progress through, each making different demands of the player. The reward in the final round, or Episode 3, is a huge 75x multiplier of your total stake. If you don’t get all the way your progress is stored, and you’ll pick up where you left off the last time. This detailed, video-quality bonus really sets Daring Dave and the Eye of Ra apart from other Ancient Egyptian-themed slots.
