Progressive Jackpot: No
No, this is not a sequel to any other slot. The 2 in the title simply indicates that this 5-reel, 20-payline slot from Novomatic is inspired by the legendary warrior, Ramses II. The game’s graphics, animation, and gameplay are all pretty basic, but this simplicity actually makes the game ideal for times when you’re simply looking for a chill way to pass the time.
Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You may start by clicking on the Lines +/- tabs to set the number of lines you want to play. You may then click on the Bet/Line +/- tabs to set the amount you want to wager per active payline. To set the reels into motion, click on the Start tab at the rightmost end of the control panel. If you want the reels to spin automatically, click on the Autoplay tab at the leftmost end of the control panel.
The game’s low-value symbols are represented by familiar playing card symbols in simple yet bold font and a variety of colours. You will see an orange 9, purple 10, blue J, green Q, yellow K, and red A. There are five high-value symbols, which are all related to the overarching theme. They are represented by a sunset view of the pyramids, a nighttime view of the Sphinx, a camel, a golden falcon, and the Egyptian god Anubis.
The game’s Wild symbol is represented by Ramses II himself. This symbol pays out on its own and can also substitute for any of the other base game symbols, with the exception of the Scatter symbol. It also doubles the value of any win it is involved in. The game’s Scatter symbol is represented by a blue scarab with an amethyst on its head. This symbol pays out on its own, regardless of where it lands on the reels. It is also key to the game’s main bonus round.
The game’s main bonus round is the familiar Free Spins feature. This is activated when you land at least three Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You will be rewarded with 15 free spins. The value of any winning combination you land during this bonus round will be multiplied by 3. And if you manage to land three more Scatter symbols on any of your free spins, you will re-trigger the bonus round.
The game also has the familiar Gamble feature. Every time you land a winning combination, you will be given the option of whether to collect your prize or gamble it. If you choose to gamble, you will be taken to a mini-game where you will try to climb a ladder by clicking on every step at the exact moment when it is lit up. If you time your click right, you get to move up to the next step, until you reach the top of the ladder, with your prize increasing at every step. If you fail to click at the right moment, the mini-game will end and you will lose your total prize for that round.
