Introduction to King Ramses Triple Shot
Not some figment of an Ainsworth employees’ imagination, King Ramses was in fact a real king - King Ramses II to be precise. The third pharaoh of the 19th Dynasty (1292 - 1186 BCE), King Ramses was known to his people as Userma’atre’setepenre, or “Keeper of Harmony and Balance”. With a reputation as a great warrior, the battle-theme utilised in Ainsworth’s King Ramses Triple Shot slot is well justified, and you’ll see plenty of appropriate Egyptian artefacts as you spin the reels, including his wife (well, one of them at least, King Ramses was claimed to have had over 200 wives and concubines!), Nefertari.
Review / First Impressions
It doesn’t take a lot of online slot gaming experience to instantly recognise the traditional, classic look of an Ainsworth title, and King Ramses Triple Shot is no exception. With 5 reels, 3 rows, and a satisfyingly simple layout, King Ramses Triple Shot brings us back to the slot machines of old, when you could only play on a real machine in a bar or casino. While this won’t appeal to those who prefer the more cinematic experience of a modern day slot, King Ramses Triple Shot will bring a sense of nostalgia to those of us old enough to have played this style of game in the past or those who just love a nice, simple slot without the bells and whistles.
With no cinematic video slot gimmicks to fall back on, Ainsworth has taken care to ensure gameplay is still exciting enough to pull in a modern audience in this game, and a key part of this is the Triple Shot feature. Giving you the opportunity to add multipliers to your bet or even win one of the Bonuses, this green 6th reel adds an extra layer to an otherwise classic slot. Although we loved the addition of the extra reel, we did wish it triggered a bit more often, as plenty of spins could pass without even seeing a lucrative symbol appear on these 3 rows, much less actually land on a payline.
In terms of graphics, we will always have a bit of a soft spot for the simple yet clever animations and graphics utilised by Ainsworth and we particularly enjoyed the slight sparkle and golden shine that all the symbols and reels themselves have in this game. Bringing Ancient Egypt into the modern world isn’t always an easy task, but Ainsworth has done a brilliant job cleaning up the dusty historic artefacts and giving them that glory and radiance they would have had when King Ramses was pharaoh.
Payout Ratio (or RTP) of King Ramses Triple Shot Slot
King Ramses Triple Shot Slot claims an RTP (Return to Player) of 94.31%. This means that for every $100 wagered, you should be able to expect the machine to pay out approximately $94.31. Of course, this is not guaranteed and individual gameplay will reveal different returns thanks to the RNGs (Random Number Generators) utilised by game makers to ensure every single spin of the reels is 100% random and fair.
How to Play King Ramses Triple Shot Slots

Set your bet by clicking on the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ arrows either side of the ‘TOTAL BET’ section in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, or click on the small poker chip symbol next to it to select the maximum bet level for the game. Once you’re happy with your bet level, simply click on the green arrow chasing itself with the Ainsworth ‘A’ symbol in the middle to spin the reels. If you’d rather let the reels spin without your influence, there’s an ‘auto spin’ button just to the left of this, which allows you to set up the number of spins you’d like the game to play for you.
In more technical terms, you’ll see a small cog icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen which will bring up your settings so you can prepare your gaming experience just the way you like it. To the right of this, you’ll see the speakerphone symbol which allows you to mute / unmute the game sounds, and an ‘i’ button for rules and paytables.
