Book of Immortals is an ancient Egyptian-themed slot game from iSoftBet. Despite the historic theme, this trip to the land of the pharaohs has a futuristic feel. Highlights include the bonus round that awards 10 free spins (initially) with expanding symbols that pay scatter style. You could also see a swarm of scarabs fly onto the reels and transform symbols into a new and improved configuration. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 10p and £10 per spin.
The design here is bright and glossy – imagine ancient Egypt being turned into the scene of a futuristic superhero movie. It looks and sounds superb. The reels include lower value royal values plus 4 higher paying Egyptian animal gods. Anubis the jackal god is the best of the quartet, awarding 15 times your stake for a 5 symbol combination.
Helping your winning chances is the Book of Immortals which serves as both the wild and scatter. It also delivers awards of 2, 20 or 200 times your stake. Book of Immortals comes with 2 extras:
Scarab Swarm feature – on any spin, a swarm of up to 10 scarab beetles can fly onto the reels. The symbols which the scarabs land on are transformed and a new payout calculation follows with the new upgraded symbols in position.
Free Spins feature – 10 free spins are awarded if you land 3 or more Book of Immortals symbols on the same spin. On each free spin, 1 symbol is picked at random. This symbol expands and fills the whole reel if it hits on the next free spin. It also pays scatter style. If an animal god is picked as the special symbol, it can become immortal and expand and pay scatter style throughout the feature. Landing 3 scatters results in a re-trigger.
You won’t see many slicker and glossier looking Egyptian-themed slot games than this. It looks and sounds superb. It can deliver a pretty tasty payout punch too with awards of up to 638 times your stake possible on each spin or free spin.
This is a fresh take on an old favourite theme that works rather well. If you can’t get enough of all things Egyptian, then you’ll want to consult the Book of Immortals. Saying that, it’s not high variance enough for me – Book of Gods by Big Time Gaming is well worth the effort with payouts of up to 5,000 times your stake on each free spin up for grabs.
