Cash Connection Book of Ra is the new sequel to the world's most popular casino game, available with a Lock and Spin option that features up to 4 Jackpots. This game is based on the well-known Book of Ra Deluxe, but the theme, symbols, coin values... are almost identical.
Greentube have gone to great lengths to make this game special. They have introduced a few new symbols and given the game a little graphical twist, which we will discuss below.
In case you already find this game tempting and you're planning to play Cash Connection Book of Ra for real money, we recommend you play it for free on our website first. Find out how to play this version, which is sure to be a MUST PLAY game in the future, in the review we present below.
The theme of the game, as you can see for yourself, is Ancient Egypt, and the player embarks on a treasure hunt. The game is played on a standard 5 by 3 field and on 10 paylines, which has remained unchanged.
Graphically, the game has been slightly updated compared to the Deluxe version, with the addition of a large number of gold coins in the background and jackpots at the top with their names and amounts (which increase every moment until they are won). Together, this gives the impression of a more sophisticated and powerful game. The sound effects remain almost identical to most of the symbols. The biggest change has been made to the bonus and substitution symbols (joker).
The well-known book, which served as the bonus symbol in all previous versions of Book of Ra and also as the wild substitution symbol in the Cash Connection version of Book of Ra, no longer exists as such. A new book symbol called the coin has been added, which is only used as a bonus symbol in this game. A minimum of 6 coin symbols must be won to trigger the Lock and Spin bonus.
There are also book (coin) symbols, which have Mini, Major and Minor written on them. In the event that any of these symbols appear in one of the fields during the bonus games, you will be awarded the Jackpot, which will be discussed in a few lines below. A new Wild - wild symbol has been added to the game, with a completely different look, which is in addition to this text and modifies all symbols except the coin symbols.
The Cash Cobnection Book of Ra bonus is what makes the game most different from all other variants. To trigger the bonus game, you need to collect at least 6 coin symbols out of a possible 15 in the standard game. Once these are won, the Lock and Spin bonus is triggered, where you can win 4 jackpots in addition to the standard cash prizes.
The bonus game consists of 3 rounds and you don't get (as before) a randomly selected symbol scattered all over the screen. In the Cash Connection version, bonuses are limited to the collection of coin symbols within them. Each coin symbol has a quantity of coins, which can be anywhere from 1 to 100 x your bet. The more you collect, the higher the amount you win.
Each new coin that appears on the screen during the free games returns the number of free games to 3. And so on until the coin symbol never appears again during the free games, or until you fill the entire screen with coin symbols (all 15 spaces in the reel) and win the Grand Jackpot. At the end of the bonus, the total amount won in coins is added together and added to your balance.
Winning a bonus in the Cash Connection Book of Ra version activates the Lock and Spin feature, which allows you to win jackpots. There are 4 Jackpots and they are (from Minor to Major): Mini, Minor, Major and Grand Jackpot.
The Mini and Minor Jackpots apply to your game only, while the Major and Grand Jackpots increase the total amount by making everyone playing the game at the same time contribute to the jackpot amount.
These are progressive jackpots, which are very popular with players. An amount of 0.95% of each stake is transferred to these two jackpots. The jackpot grows continuously (the dynamics of growth depends on the number, the amount of stakes and the intensity of the players playing it) and so on until someone wins it.
To win one of these 3 jackpots - Mini, Minor and Major - you must win a coin symbol in the bonus round, which will draw Mini, Minor or Major instead of a coin amount. For each of these bonuses, you only need to win one of these symbols. E.g. to win the Minor Jackpot, you need to win 1 book symbol, which will have Minor written on it during the bonus.
The story for winning the Big Jackpot is a bit different and more difficult. Of course, it's not surprising that this is the case, but it is the Grand Jackpot in the Greentube Cash Connection series of games, which can grow to hefty amounts as there is no upper limit on jackpots. At the time of writing, the Grand Jackpot is €13,000. Doesn't that sound bad?
To win the top jackpot, you need to complete the coin symbols on all 15 reel spaces (i.e. the entire screen). As the coins are both symbols and book symbols, once you manage to collect 15 symbols, you effectively have an entire library to treat you to the big wins collected in the Grand Jackpot pot.
The theoretical return to player is 95.0%. Theoretically, the RTP is calculated as the ratio of the total winnings to the total stakes over a large number of games played and keeps the prizes awarded by the game as a percentage of the total stakes.
Pros: Improved graphics, Twin and Spin option, 4 jackpots, Cash connection series.
Cons: If you are a fan of the classic version of Book of Ra Deluxe mainly for the bonus games, this version may not be the "right fit" at first.
Cash Connection Book of Ra is the second game in the Cash Connection series after Sizzling Hot. We think this game was definitely worth the wait and would recommend it to everyone for the Lock And Spin option and the strong jackpots.
