Book of Ra slot game has been imitated by Novomatic’s competitors in various ways. Their games have name similarity, theme similarity and system similarity. Gold Of Ra (GameArt), Book Of the Dead (Play ‘n Go), Riches Of Ra (Netent), Book Of Romeo (Bally Wulff) etc. There are many Egypt themed games and they also have Book symbols. In fact, even Novomatic itself has imitated its game Book of Ra and produced new similar games.
However, none of the imitations were favored as Book of Ra. As Book of Ra was unrivalled, Novomatic company changed its strategy.
Instead of producing new slots similar to Book of Ra, Novomatic chose to develop Book of Ra game and produce new versions of Book of Ra. Again with the same name and game characters, it just started to offer new versions with extra bet. These are Book of Ra 6, Book of Ra Two Symbols, Fixed Book of Ra, and Book of Ra Xpand. New versions of Book of Ra are first offered to players in slot machines at land-based casinos, and then online versions are offered to online casinos by GreenTube.
You can now play Book of Ra 6 in both land-based casinos and online casinos having GreenTube (Novomatic) games.
Book of Ra Two Symbols and Fixed Book of Ra are not yet available online. One of the features of the new versions of Book of Ra is that it turns into classic Book of Ra Deluxe when extra bet is deactivated. This means that you can play the new version of Book of Ra and additional features when Extra Bet is activated.
