While the mechanics of online slot games have definitely progressed over the years, some casino games developers enjoy using the same themes you've been getting in your slots gaming for longer than you can remember. One of these themes is the Egyptian one, and no online slot series has driven this theme harder than the ‘Book of’ games. Book of Fallen is another that you can now play right here, and while you can trigger the free spins feature by landing so many of the bonus icon, the studio also gives impatient players the chance to buy these features.
Pragmatic Play is the studio that created Book of Fallen, and they’ve included their favourite character being John Hunter. This explorer has appeared in myriad ‘Book of’ slots online, and the surroundings he finds himself in are very similar to what you’ve always known in these slots. In terms of mechanics, you’ve got 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines on which to land 3, 4 or 5 of a kind winning combinations.
The most you can potentially win off of any given spin is 5,000x your stake. This isn't too bad, and could actually be deemed relatively high for slots in this series of games. The volatility of the reels is high, so play with a sensible strategy that ties you over for when things don't go as planned. The minimum bet limit is 0.10 per bet, while the maximum is 50.00.
If you're a person that's played some of Book of Fallen’s sister slots, then you’ll almost surely know what symbols to expect. The higher paying ones are Egyptian icons in the ankh, the jackal, Tutankhamun and John Hunter the explorer. The lower paying icons are playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
In typical ‘Book of’ fashion, the wild and the scatter are the same icon, being the book. This means that the book will trigger bonus play and substitute all regular symbols in order to make up winning symbol combos.
The bonus round is a free spins feature. By landing three or more scatter/wilds on the same spin, you'll be rewarded with ten free spins. Before the round starts, however, you'll be asked to choose a regular symbol that will expand to cover an entire reel every time it lands during free spins. You'll be thinking, why not always just choose the most high paying symbol, but the more valuable the icon you choose, the more volatile the free spins feature. Landing 3 or more scatter/wilds in free spins adds another ten spins.
You have the option of buying the free spins feature in Book of Fallen for a price determined by the slot. Also, you can play in a mode that always sees a chosen symbol expand, but this will cost you more per spin.
Putting the choice of which symbol expands during free spins is something quite unique for a slot in this series of releases. It is a choice that could see you handsomely rewarded, or having gone with a dud. Regardless, that choice is sure to add to the thrills of your gaming experience, which, when it comes to 'Book of' titles, is something always welcomed.
