Best Casinos To Try This Slot
Gamomat is giving us one more Ancient Egypt inspired game, this time using Horus as a main character. It looks like one more Book-style slot machine, though the feature section is promising us something extra, and it might just be interesting enough to play. Books & Temples is the name of this game, which we’re reviewing below.
In a game which has 5x3 reels, Books & Temples promises to offer mixed wild/scatter symbols, free spins and bonus symbols, along with an upgrade mechanic. It has high volatility, so the rewards promise to be on the high side, but it also has the RTP at a 96.10% that I find acceptable, while the $100,000 top jackpot should get players interested as well.
Betting and Prizes
You may select either 5 or 10 active lines, but I’d recommend you stick with the latter. The bet values range from $0.10 to $100, allowing for line bets to reach a maximum of $10.
While a combo of five wilds/scatters will pay even up to $20,000, the regular combinations offer as much as $10,000 on each line, so 100x the stake in each case. Add them together, and you can get a top prize of $100,000, so about 1,000x the stake, in a single spin.
Books & Temples has High volatility, as the developers themselves mention, and it is a slot machine which can be fairly risky to play. At the same time, it has the high rewards that are typical of Book-style games, and the RTP of 96.10% tells us that it’s fair enough, or about as much as you can expect any slot machine to be.
Books & Temples Slot Features
As with all Book of Ra inspired slot machines, and there are quite a few of them out there, we get mixed wild/scatter symbols, which we can use to gain access to free spins. In this case, it’s the Book of Horus that is the main symbol offered, both as wild and scatter.
Book of Horus scatters are the ones responsible for the activation of 10 free spins. Inside, the game gives you a feature where the Book will reveal a bonus symbol. The bonus symbol is the one that gains the ability to expand and occupy the entire reel. This makes it easier for that particular symbol, to form combinations on all the lines.
An alternative is having the Temple scatter act as trigger for free spins. This one’s only a scatter, doesn’t act as a wild. It appears 3 to 5 times, if you’re lucky, giving you 12 free spins and a prize of up to $20,000. An upgrade feature is available in this mode.
Horus symbols are expanding wilds, which you can get to take over entire reels, helping form all types of regular combinations.
Theme & Design
The theme of Books & Temples is fairly obvious, particularly for a Book-style game. It’s based on Ancient Egypt, and by the looks of it there will be a bit of a focus on Horus in this one. The main symbol, the feature trigger, will have the image of the Book of Horus. Horus is another feature symbol, while a Temple is another. Regular symbols show us an Adventurer, Sphinx, Anubis, Bastet, Scarab Ring, Eye of Ra Necklace and several Royals with no themed design.
Books & Temples does alright if you look only at its features, it’s fun enough to play, but it doesn’t have huge rewards to pay or an interesting theme/design.
