The Johnny Ventura and the Eye of Ra slot game can be found at online casinos offering Pariplay. Pariplay now publish the slots house edge information of all their games as a standard. You can find this by clicking the ‘+’ symbol at the bottom left hand corner of the game window then clicking ‘?’. Within this help file you’ll find the RTP information. As such we can say that the House Edge of Johnny Ventura and the Eye of Ra is 3.5%. As the help file does not list a range of possible figures we assume that this game is not configurable and should be the same at every casino you find it at.
Johnny Ventura and the Eye of Ra is a 5-reel game and each reel is 3 symbols high. The slot uses traditional paylines with 10 in total, playing from left to right.
The theme of Johnny Ventura and the Eye of Ra is ancient Egypt and our genre is action and adventure. In this instance you have an intrepid explorer who I suspect may well appear again at some point in PariPlay’s not too distant future. Like Rich Wilde and John Hunter this is likely to be PariPlay’s attempt at an Indiana Jones inspired franchise that they will be hoping lives up the success that Play ‘n’ Go’s hero has.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Eye of Ra Book”, which will substitute for all paying symbols. The “Eye of Ra Book” is also a Scatter, meaning it will pay out in combinations of 3 or more regardless of paylines. The symbol will also trigger the Free Spins feature if 3 or more are landed in a single spin.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins feature you will be given 10 additional spins in total and the feature can be re-triggered. Before the feature begins a symbol will be chosen at random that will expand to fill any reel it lands on.
Johnny Ventura and the Eye of Ra is a solid enough slot. Most of the positives I have to take from playing it come from the aesthetic qualities that are on display. The features are far too sparse to make the experience anything other than just OK. You get Free Spins and Wilds. The Free Spins can re-trigger and you get an expanding symbol during that feature. The house edge is offering good value for money, which nearly makes up for the lack of game play.
