Golden Ark video slot

Novomatic Company created Golden Ark video slot in 2014, much like it’s much more famous predecessor in the name of Book of Ra. Get into the hero mode as a young researcher. It is your task to rescue the missing girl and get rewarded handsomely. Almost the same theme - travel, history, ancient mysteries and puzzles, and almost identical in the gameplay: the same with "book of Ra Deluxe" that has the most important symbols of the same archaeologist-explorer (only now it is a woman). The slot also has the same payout percentage as that of the Book of Ra Deluxe - 95.1%. The machine has a rather high-quality graphics but generally did not lose the classic style of the famous Novomatic, which has brought worldwide fame and love to the developer.

If you want to try to complete the wagering requirements, then you should not do it - 3.81 out of 10. The video slot does not keep a balance.

Golden Ark slot looks brighter and colourful, but it's good old Beech of-Ra. If you look at the payout table, you will see the same values as Book of Ra slot:

  • First, five of the most expensive characters (archaeology woman) on the same line can get you up to 50,000 coins (at the rate of 100);
  • Secondly, the importance of the second symbol in the normal mode - Sphinx (Book of Ra has a very similar character);
  • Third, the book - they also need three to start the bonus game, and they also serve as a wild and scatters simultaneously.
  • In general, on the sidelines, Novomatic decided to create a modern clone of the Book of Ra particularly. And to be honest, these clones have already abounded. No, the subject, of course, a winner and is in great demand, but can’t we come up with something completely different?


  • Number of reels - 5
  • Number of pay-lines - 10
  • Bet on the line - from 0,04 to 10,00
  • The range of the size of bets - from 0,04 to 100,00
  • Maximum winning for a combination of symbols – x50 000 (5 symbols of Finder)
  • Wild symbol - yes (Book)
  • Scatter - yes (Book which acts as wild and activates free spins)
  • Free spins - yes (10 free starts with an additional symbol which will extend on all reel)
  • The expected payout percentage (RTP) in the video slot is 95,1%


  • The bonus game is the same - 10 free spins. Before the launch of its special character is selected, this will be a bonus for the period round. The main feature is the ability to expand this scatter on all three reels cell. Once any combination of the bonus is formed, the symbol takes all three of vertical space and can theoretically be in all 15 boxes at once (that will bring the maximum possible gain).
  • It is important to understand this: the bonus game is everything. This is something that worth playing. In normal mode, hoping for a big win is not worth it. The slot was created just for the bonus round. That is where you can win thousands of bets per spin.
  • What is even more important for a decent win - the bonus symbol? If it is, for example, ten, queen or jack, there will be nothing like a super win - even if all the cells are filled. But if this symbol is itself "Lara" or the Sphinx, that's when we are talking about very serious money.
  • By the way, you can put a maximum of 100 coins, and in fact to win hundreds of thousands of dollars, but I would strongly recommend not doing it. The slot is very dispersive, and maybe even can make you rich on a small rate - for example, $ 1. You can win thousands of dollars, even for such a low rate. I think this will be enough for one rotation.
  • Moreover, in the bonus game, free spins often fall further increasing their initial value (10 units) several times. In general, the payoff potential in the Golden Ark is huge.
