We Uncover the Mysterious Wings of Ra Slot From Red Tiger Gaming!
LeoVegas Casino has recently the new online slot release from Red Tiger Gaming called Wings of Ra, which is an ancient Egypt themed release. Using a regular 5×3 reel layout, this slot has just 10 fixed paylines, which pay on all adjacent symbols positions, not just left to right like a regular slot.
The key feature of this machine is the special Mystery Coin symbols which can be heavily stacked on the reels. When landing in view, they will reveal a matching symbol.
The main bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the scatter symbols, which awards 12 free spins and 3 additional spins for each additional scatter. These extra spins can be really key during the bonus round, given how the free spins work.
During the bonus round, the same Mystery Coin symbols are present on the reels. A new collection meter is above the reels, which requires 14 of these symbols to be filed once this is done, the lowest paying symbol on the reels is removed and converted into more Mystery Coin symbols.
As you progress through the bonus round and more symbols get converted into mystery symbols, they soon become very heavily stacked, allowing you to fill up the progress meter a lot quicker as well as revealing lots of stacked matching symbols.
One extra novel twist is that is any regular symbols that are visible on the reels when the meter is filled and about to be removed from the reels are also then converted into Mystery Coin symbols and then added to the meter speeding up the collection process slightly.
Whilst there is no re-trigger on offer during the bonus round, which we found disappointing, it’s quite obvious why, once 2-3 symbols have been removed, the number of Mystery symbols on the reels becomes huge!

When the special Mystery Coins land in view on the reels they will spin around to reveal a random symbol. All of the Mystery Coins in a spin will reveal the same matching symbol.
The main bonus round is triggered by landing 3 Scatters symbols anywhere on the reels and awards 12 free spins. Each additional scatters awards 3 extra bonus spins.
During the bonus round all Mystery Coins that land in a spin fills a special progress bar above the reels. The progress meter requires 14 Mystery Coins to be filled and this can be completed until all symbols are converted.
The converted symbols are then transformed into Mystery Coin symbols making them much more common on the reels for the remaining free spins.
If symbols on the reels are turned into Mystery Coins they are also counted towards the overall progress bar.
The progress bar fills until all symbols but the highest paying one are transformed into Mystery Coins.
Wings of Ra Slot
The Wings of Ra slot from Red Tiger Gaming is quite an interesting release from them. The Mystery Coin symbols are an interesting concept, particularly in the bonus round where converting symbols increases their number progressively onto the reels. Once a few symbols have been converted, you can land very heavily stacked blocks of them onto the reels.
In our playtests, we were disappointed by the lack of extra and re-triggers, but once we managed a good bonus round over 100x, it’s obvious why this couldn’t be included due to the heavily stacked Mystery coins being close to completely covering the reels on the final few spins!
Certainly worth a play as this slot isn’t quite as volatile as we originally anticipated but still has some good potential with a 4 or 5 scatter trigger. Those extra spins could really make a huge difference to the bonus round!
