Book of Anksunamun: Rockways Slot Review
Anksunamun was an Egyptian queen who lived in the 18th century. She was the Royal Wife of Tutankhamun and one of Nerfititi’s daughters. Now, while that might seem like an impressive resume, just wait till you read the next paragraph. 🇪🇬
We all know that Egyptian royalty liked to keep their bloodlines pure, but Anksunamun may have been married to her father, and it’s possible she was married to her maternal grandfather.
Jesus, that’s enough to earn her a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Appalachian Society for Inbreeding. 😳😱
This is Book of Anksunamun: Rockways slot from Mascot and thankfully there are no relations marrying each other. However, I know of one studio that wouldn’t shy away from creating a game with that topic. I’m looking at you, Nolimit City…
A sexy Egyptian babe with a dress that’s wafting in the breeze – that’s what first caught my eye when I loaded Book of Anksunamun: Rockways slot. 👀
She’s been rendered with incredible detail, but the other symbols on the reels – the Pharaoh, and two animal-headed gods – are equally eye-catching.
The Mystery symbol – which is our book – appears in both the base game and the Free Spins round, just not on the leftmost reel. Mystery symbols are Scatters and Wilds and replace all symbols that aren’t Special Expanding symbols.
The 5x5-reel grid translates well to a mobile phone in portrait mode, but landscape mode ain’t no slouch either, so you can play in the orientation you prefer.
The paylines can increase from 32 to 3,125 ways to win when the blocker tiles get removed during the Free Spins round. The RTP is 95.42%, the volatility rate is high, the max multiplier is a rocking 12,500x, and the biggest payout stands at $250,000. 💰
Book of Anksunamun: Rockways slot uses what’s customarily known as a Tumble or Cascade feature, but in this instance, the studio has renamed it the Rockfall.
You’re probably familiar with it; symbols involved in a win are removed so that new symbols can drop into their position and hopefully trigger additional wins.
This round is triggered once you hit 3 or 4 Mystery symbols – that will award 5 or 10 spins, respectively – at the same time as a Special Expanding symbol. You can also re-trigger the spins by landing additional Mystery symbols.
A Special Expanding symbol is randomly chosen at the start of the round (it just can’t be a Mystery symbol) and will take over a reel except for those positions with blocker tiles on them.
If a reel has more than one Special Expanding symbol on it, these will expand across the reel,
and all blocker tiles will also be removed.
This feature allows you to risk your winnings (any will do) for a shot at boosting your money via a Wheel of Fortune.
You’ll see 3 concentric circles in the Wheel – you can land on a multiplier, a blank tile (in which case you’ll lose your winnings), or an arrow that takes you into the next, smaller circle. You’ll score a multiplier worth 1,000x your bet if you hit the inner circle.
The Bonus Buy lets you pay money to get into the Free Spins round (90x your bet) rather than waiting for the feature to trigger organically.
There’s also this bizarre Mascot Special Offer that refreshes each time you open the Bonus Buy. It’s supposed to give you the ability to pay less for the feature but sometimes the amount is more – even way more – than the standard fee.
It messes with my head that Mascot hasn’t fixed this as it’s come up before, and I’m sure I’m not the only person who thinks it's asinine.
Everything went according to plan; there were no performance-related issues while I was testing the game.
The betting range is $0.25 to $20. As for the max multiplier and the largest payout, these are 12,500x and $250,000, respectively.
Book of Anksunamun: Rockways slot is a typical Mascot Gaming creation – there’s the usual Risk’N’Buy and Free Spins features, but of course in this game, we’ve got the Scatter Wild thing going on.
Get stuck in the base game and you’ll be in for a dreary time as the action is repetitive and dull. But this isn’t necessarily different from many other games. Free Spins are also uneventful, as even the Expanding symbols don’t add much excitement to the mix.
So, the upshot is that this isn’t a game for thrill seekers. But if you’re into risk, then you’ll be able to get your fix with the Wheel of Fortune.
I found Book of Anksunamun: Rockways slot too yawn-inducing 🥱 for my taste, but I guess it’ll be a good option for mobile players who won’t want their games to be too complicated if they’re playing on the go.
And let’s not forget that Book of Anksunamun: Rockways slot is built on some solid stats.
