Despite thinking that the topic of ancient Egypt has been thoroughly exhausted in the gaming industry, developers always seem to refute us and surprise us with yet another Egyptian themed slot which offers some sort of a twist. Online slot Book of Gods is a good example of this, for Big Time Gaming left aside their popular Megaways and resorted to some tried-out recipes when it comes to creating a successful video slot. Take a walk through the past and enjoy Book of Gods, a video slot with 243 ways to win, where you can benefit from Cloning Symbols and a lucrative Free Spins Game. Hope for prizes of up to 4,860x your bet and expect a theoretical RTP of 96.35%.
Forget about the desert and enter a wonderful temple from which you can observe the great river Nile and the pyramids in the distance. Once the game loads, a 5-reel, 3-row layout will welcome you. Before starting the game, you should adjust the betting range which goes from merely ₹10 to ₹4,000. Press Play to spin or stop the reels and when symbols land in consecutive positions, from left to right, payouts will be awarded. Tap on the Autoplay button and select the number of automatic rounds, as well as the win or loss limit. High-paying symbols include deities that will issue from 2.2x up to 20x your stake for 5 of a kind. Playing card symbols 9 through Ace deliver lower payouts ranging between 0.5x to 2x the wager when 5 appear on adjacent reels.
The only special symbol video slot Book of Gods has on display is a golden book which represents both Wild and Scatter, meaning it will deliver payouts as Wild and trigger the Free Spins Round as Scatter. From 2 to 5 Wilds can hit the grid and award payouts between 2x and 30x the bet.
On every spin one of the low-paying symbols is randomly chosen to become a Cloning symbol. These Cloning symbols work similarly to Expanding ones, they will multiply to cover the entire reel on which they initially landed, providing opportunities for new wins. Once replicated, these icons will pay irrespective of their position.
As we’ve already mentioned, the golden book stands both for Wild and Scatter. Landing at least 3 will award payouts and trigger the Free Spins Game. 3, 4 or 5 Scatters will respectively reward you with 15, 20 and 25 free spins. Before the round is initiated, the Book of Gods will open to show one God that is randomly chosen to act as a Cloning symbol while the Bonus is on. Obtaining 3 or more Scatters will re-activate the feature and a new God will be revealed. Should you manage to re-trigger the round three times, all Gods will become active.
If you feel like it takes forever to trigger the Bonus, resort to the Feature Drop which enables you to buy into it for a set price of 80x your stake. To reduce the price collect Feature Drop symbols during play. Should you collect a sufficient number of these icons the feature will be activated automatically.
Book of Gods is a slot showcasing superb visuals and a spotless design. In our opinion it could have used a more effective soundtrack. However, though there are scores of slots with the same topic, this one has that something that will keep players at it. It combines successful features, Expanding symbols and a Bonus that can be re-triggered for an unlimited number of times, as well as a stupendous potential of 4.860x the stake. You should definitely give these reels a spin whether you’re a fan of “Book of” slots or not.
