Book Of Egypt Slot Review
Urgggghhh Egypt! I feel like over the years of doing slot reviews I have basically written a thesis on ancient Egypt, its gods, and artifacts. I have researched so much information on this country in ancient times that perhaps I could give a lecture on the subject. I have been on every adventure possible in the pyramids and catacombs, Tutankhamun's grave and every other imaginable place you could wish to uncover another an Egyptian Mystery. Let's see if Book of Egypt by Platipus Gaming is any different. Set in the depths of a tomb the reels are flanked by 2 gods to protect the right of play. The reels offer all the standard symbols of ancient Egypt. The music too is typical of other Egyptian slots. Expanding Symbols and free spins make up the gameplay of Book of Egypt. If ancient Egypt is your thing, you will be pleased to know you can play this slot on a Laptop, MacBook, Tablet or Mobile Phone.
With a restricted number of pay lines, being 10, this 5 reel game doesn't bring too many rewards with it. You will find yourself relying heavily on those expanding symbols to break through for a win. The symbols are standard of ancient Egypt and include a scarab, Tutankhamun's head, cross and the lucky eye. The balance of the reel is filled with lower paying card numbers 10 through to Ace. The Scatter symbol is the Book of Egypt and can substitute for any of the standard symbols. The controls do not match the theme but are nonetheless practical and neat. On the bottom of the reels, you will find balance, total bet, line bet, information, auto play, and play. The controls work well and will help you navigate your way around this simple game with ease.
3 or more of the scatter symbols landing on the reels will trigger the free spin round with 10 free spins. Prior to the free spins starting you will select a special expanding symbol. This will appear during the free spins and may expand over 2 to 5 reels to create further winning opportunities. This symbol pays its own value on the pay table.
After playing this game, I can say there isn't really anything new or unusual added to this game. It plays smoothly, and there were no glitches. The interface was suitable bright, and the animations were adequate. I just missed a bit of a wow factor.
Platypus has produced a solid offering without any bells and whistles. Egypt themed slots don't appeal to me, but I am sure there is a vast audience for a game such as this one.
