Links of Ra
What’s the Deal?
It’s time to get those desert boots on my sandy friends, as we are off to Ancient Egypt again to take a look at the Links of Ra slot from Microgaming and Slingshot Studios. This game comes powered with the popular Link & Win feature, plus it has a few other goodies up its sleeves.
The action plays out on a 5×4 grid and 40 pay-lines. This is a volatile game (is it just me, or are there a lot of volatile slots about at the moment?) with a top prize of 25,000x your stake. That is even more than the Cat Clans slot my friends, and the Egyptians liked a cat.
Look and Feel
These days a game has to look slick with all the competition about (try the Beasts of Fire slot if you don’t believe me) and Links of Ra definitely achieves that.
The Egyptian graphics are clear and crisp, with the Pyramids of Giza at sunset as the background. The game looks great on a mobile or tablet as well.
The 5×4 playing grid sits in the center. The low-paying symbols are four gems, then you’ll see the Ancient Egyptian gods: Anubis, Bastet, Khnum, Sobek and Horus. The links of Ra Wild is the game’s logo while the Scatter symbol is Ankh drawn over a blue gem.
It’s a bonza looking slot game alright: a more traditional theme than something like Gods of Rock (Anubis is on bass for that one) but very well done. Good work Slingshot, fair dinkum.
Links of Ra Game Play
Links of Ra is pretty easy to pick up compared to some of the other games we have spun recently. The Wild substitutes for symbols to make up wins of course, and it is also the top payer: Five nets you 25x your stake.
In the base game, you may see Super Stacked symbols which will boost your win chances. Very nice.
Link & Win
Let’s cut to the chase shall we, which is the Link & win feature. You can trigger this from the base game and the bonus feature with at least six Gold Coin symbols. The triggering coins will stick in place on the reels and you’ll get three Re-spins to hopefully bag more Gold Coins.
Any additional Coins will reset the Re-spins counter and will also stick in place. The Coins are loaded with 1x to 15x multipliers in the base game, and when you have finished the round 9no more Gold coins) or when you have landed a whole screen full Gold Coins, you will win the grand total.
There are also four 4 different Jackpot Coin symbols, with 20x, 100x, 500x and 2,500x the stake jackpots on them, called the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand.
If you happen to be in the bonus game, the multipliers on the Gold Symbols, including those jackpots, are doubled.
To get into the Links of Ra bonus, you will need 3 Scatters. This nets you 15 Free Spins, and all wins are multiplied by 2x throughout the feature.
So, as the Grand Jackpot offers a 2,500x the stake win, and the Free Spins doubles your wins, there is a 5,000x Grand Jackpot prize in the bonus. In total, the Links of Ra top payout is 25,000x your stake prize. it is a high variance game, however, so expect hot and cold periods.
The Links of Ra Slot is another ripper of a game in the Link & Win game series. Other games in this group include Thunderstruck Wild Lightning and Game of Thrones Power Stacks. This new Egyptian number is a real looker as well.
If you like your Ancient Egyptian games and you love high variance slots, then this will be right on your Camel Route.

- Can I play the Links of Ra slot for free?
Yes you can, you can play most of our games in demo mode once you have signed up at Wombat Casino so that we can complete an age check.
- What exactly is the "Link and Win" feature?
Links & Win sets off if you land 6 or more Gold coins. You will kick off with 3 starting re-spins and the coins will freeze in place. If you land additional coins or jackpot coins, you will reset the re-spins again. On a good run, you could hit the Grand Jackpot worth 2,500x your original stake (or double that if you are in the feature bonus).
