Book of Immortals Slot Review
Ancient Egypt is a very popular theme when it comes to video slots. This time iSoftBet decided to combine ancient Egypt with a somewhat futuristic design. Book of Immortals is a five-reel video slot that offers 10 fixed paylines. Playable from £0.10 per spin, the 2019 release offers a Free Spins feature with expanding symbols, which will pay Scatter style, anywhere on the reels. The Scarabs are the most important symbols in the game, since they present both Wilds and Scatters. Also, there is the Scarab Swap feature, triggered randomly, where up to 10 symbols can be transformed into other symbols.
The reels are set in Egypt, overlooking the pyramids and the sphinx. All of the symbols that populate the reels are pretty familiar. There is Anubis, the jackal, which is the god of the underworld, Horus, the eagle, god of the sky, Bastet, the cat goddess and Khnum, the god of the source of Nile. Scarabs represent Wilds that substitute for all symbols and also represent Scatters that trigger the Free Spins feature. Scarabs can also fly over the reels ad land on them to transform symbols. Low-value symbols are represented by 10-A playing cards.
Even mere mortals can play the 2019 release, because the gods made sure that the rules of the game are as simple as possible. The iSoftBet product features five reels, three rows and benefits from 10 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. When it comes to landing payouts, you will need at least three matching symbols on a payline for low-paying symbols and at least two matching symbols for high-value ones. The betting range is not that wide, because the lowest spinners can wager is £0.10, while the biggest possible bet cannot go over £10.
Land three or more Scarab Scatters on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature and get 10 free spins. During the feature, one random symbol will be chosen as a special symbol for a specific freebie and if that symbol appears it will expand to cover the entire reel and pay Scatter style. If the high-value Gods appear as special symbols, they will remain special and expand every time they appear on the reels until the feature ends. Of course, it is possible to retrigger the feature and get more free spins.
Also, there is the Scarab Swap feature, triggered randomly. A swarm of Scarabs can land on the reels and switch up to 10 symbols for a potential big win.
Anubis is the most generous among gods, offering 150 coins for five of a kind. The maximum possible payout is set at 1,500 coins and will happen once all cells are occupied by Anubis symbols. Land five Scatters on the reels to get 200 times the bet. Trigger the Free Spins feature to fill cells with expanding symbols for bigger wins. Book of Immortals’ RTP is 96.31%
Book of Immortals on Mobile
Egypt is not that close and not everybody can afford to explore the pyramids and see the sphynx, but, thanks to the good people of iSoftBet, you can visit Egypt and see the glorious gods of Egypt from the comforts of your homes, or on the go, because the 2019 release can be played across all devices and it boasts stunning visuals for better gaming experience.
+ Free spins with expanding symbols
+ Scarabs act both as Wilds and Scatters
+ Stunning visuals
– No multipliers
– Not a wide betting range
– Only 10 paylines
First, we will start with things we did not like. We do not like the fact that the 2019 release offers only 10 paylines, we love video slots that offer more options. Also, the betting range could have been a bit wider, simply to meet the demands of high rollers. On the other hand, we simply love the visuals. The good people of iSoftBet deserve a pat on the back for a job well done in the graphics department. The Free Spins feature comes with expanding symbols and high-value symbols will expand throughout the feature when they appear as special symbols. Even though the theme is quite common, spinners could like Book of Immortals better than other games with the same topic.
