Book of Atem Slot Review

The first of the ancient Egyptian Gods is the star of Book of Atem, the latest myth and legend-themed slot from All 41 Studios and Microgaming. It’s a 5 reel, 10 payline slot that looks and sounds superb. The gameplay is simple with the only feature being a Free Spins feature with a special expanding symbols. It’s volatile too. Head to the land of the Pharaohs from between 10p and £25 per spin.

Elegant visuals

There’s a very classy look to Book of Atem. There’s no shortage of luxury here but it’s not as bling as many similarly themed slots. With a garden and palace buildings in the background, the reels include gold A to 10 symbols as well as a pink flow, a cobra and a bird of prey. The top symbol is the Pharaoh which awards 1, 7.5, 100 or 500 times your total stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Dual-serving Book of Atem

The magical Book of Atem is both the wild and the scatter. It substitutes for all the other symbols and also triggers the Free Spins feature if you land 3 or more of them on the same spin. A payout of 2, 20 or 200 times your stake is made if you land 3, 4 or 5 of the Book of Atem symbol on the same spin. You’ll also receive 10 free spins.

Before the round begins, 1 symbol is picked at random. Each time the chosen symbol lands during the free spins, it will expand to fill the whole of the reel. Landing 3 or more of the Book of Atem on the same free spin results in a re-trigger and another round of 10 free spins.

High variance

Book of Atem isn’t the most original slot you’ll play. There are plenty of games with free spins with expanding symbols- like Play ‘N Go’s Book of Dead. It’s a popular combination though. What does make this slot stand out are the high-class sound and visuals which are terrific. It’s fiery too. The variance here is high with top wins of 5,000 times your stake on each spin or free spin.

There’s nothing overly flashy about Book of Atem. The classy design, simple feature and volatile gameplay come together nicely though which makes this well worth considering if you like the ancient theme.
