Ancient Egypt is one of those slot machine themes that grinds my gears. I've played so many games based on the period in the past that I'm over it. I've encountered more gods, pharaohs, treasure hunters, and mummies than you can imagine, and I'm just over it. Red Tiger Gaming is nonetheless transporting us back in time to Egypt in their Wings of Ra slot, which despite its efforts, is a mediocre affair that quickly will bore anyone that's played an Egyptian slot in the past.
Wings of Ra is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that's set in front of an Egyptian temple, complete with charcoal lamps and palm fronds. The game's symbols are a combination of low-paying icons that include 10s, Js, Qs, Ks, As as well as high-paying icons like an eye symbol, an eagle symbol, a Queen gold bust, and a Gold Pharaoh sarcophagus. There are also coins and scarab icons that serve specific purposes in the game.
Features in the slot include wilds, free spins, stacked symbols, and a mechanic that sees the game paying out mid-payline. The feature set is pretty basic and the combined layout and features give it a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 95.7%, which is about average for an RTG slot but a shade lower than what we normally see from other online slot developers.
Wings of Ra does include a mobile mode, which does allow you to play the game through your smartphone or tablet. That's not to say that you can't play through your desktop (you clearly can), but mobile slots are growing in popularity and you'll find it plays well on the smaller devices.
In all though, Wings of Ra is pretty boring experience. The game just doesn't do anything all that compelling and it blends itself into the scores of other Egyptian games that are out there. Sure, you can score some nice wins with the free spins round, but the combined lack of features and boring theme really make this something that wears on you quickly. I am always looking for something "different", and this just doesn't fit the bill.
This isn't to say that there's no possibility that you'll like this game. There's certainly a market for it, and RTG has smarter people than me making these games. If you like it, great! I just think it's boring and there are much better games for you to try your luck with.
