One more Ancient Egypt inspired slot machine awaits for you in Book of Adventure, this time a release which is coming from StakeLogic. The developer went after a market that is covered by many, that of the fans of the Book of Ra series. It uses the same theme and mostly the same type of features, but more on that below.
To start with, 10 active lines are present in Book of Adventure, and there are 5 reels of standard size to support them. Mixed symbols, used both as wilds and scatters, will take you to a free spins feature which relies on special expanding symbols to get you closer to a win of up to $100,000. The game’s potential should be even higher with help from base game Adventurers, even up to $271,500 according to the developer.
Betting and Prizes
By modifying the number of coins and their value as needed, but keeping the lines fixed, you may have a bet anywhere between $0.10 and $50 each round. Your maximum wager per line will be $5.
If we look at the prizes being offered, the Adventurer symbol is the clear winner, paying up to 5,000x per combo, or $25,000. The expanding symbols from the free spins appear to be limited to wins of $10,000 per combo, so the potential of a round at that point would be only $100,000 (2,000x the stake). StakeLogic mentions that the maximum payout of the game is $271,500 though, and they also mention an RTP of 96.21% for this slot.
Book of Adventure Slot Features
The feature side of this game is far from original, and in fact there are probably dozens of Ancient Egypt slots out there, trying to replicate the success of Book of Ra. This one doesn’t do any better than the others, though as far as clones go it’s alright.
You will discover that the slot delivers only one feature symbol for the most part. The Book of Adventure which you see mentioned in the title is both your scatter symbol and your substitute. Mostly, you can expect the symbol to act as a replacement, provided that it’s showing up in the right spot.
Have these symbols appear three times, and that will get you into the free spins. The feature consists of 10 rounds, which will benefit from the presence of an expanding symbol. This is a symbol that’s picked at random as the feature starts. All instances of that icon will be transformed into symbols which expand to take over the reels they appear on. This is the point where getting a screen filled with matching symbols becomes possible. It’s also the mechanic which made this type of slot machine so popular. Finally, the free spins may be retriggered, via another set of three scatters.
Theme & Design
The part about this game that’s most common is actually the theme, which once again shows us Ancient Egypt, its pyramids and some of the deities of the time. This time, we also get the image of the Adventurer as a high paying icon. The Book of Adventure is another important one. The others include Horus, Ra and a Pharaoh, plus five Royals.
The gameplay and the theme aren’t that interesting, they’ve been used too many times already, but I still get excited about a top payout of more than 5,000x the stake.
