Special Features

The game features a selection of Ancient Egyptian iconography including hieroglyphic-style A – 10 playing card symbols along with 4 different Egyptian Gods. Theses include symbols based on Ra, Anubis, Bastet, and Khnum and can appear stacked on the reels. The most valuable symbol in the game is Anubis the jackal as when you land 5 of them on a payline then you will be treated to a fine cash payout worth 15X your wager.

An image of a blue book with a scarab on the front is the Wild symbol which also acts as the Scatter symbol in the game. It replaces all other symbols to help create winning combinations on the reels. Land 3 or more Wilds anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Spins bonus game along with receiving a Multiplier prize. The more Wilds you land then the bigger the Multiplier prize becomes:

  • 3 Wilds = 10 Free Spins + 2X Multiplier
  • 4 Wilds = 10 Free Spins + 20X Multiplier
  • 5 Wilds = 10 Free Spins + 200X Multiplier

During Free Spins, one symbol is chosen at random. This symbol will then proceed to expand and fill an entire reel whenever it lands during the bonus game and also pays out Scatter-style on non-adjacent reels. The God symbols also come into play during Free Spins as when they appear they will expand to fill whole reels and remain in place for the entire feature. A pleasing aspect of Free Spins is that you can land additional Free Spins by getting the Extra Free Spins symbol on the top reel during the feature.

The final feature to discuss is the Scarab Swap feature. This a random bonus event that can occur on any paid spin. When it triggers then a swarm of Scarabs will fly across the reels and land on up to 10 symbols. The Scarabs will then upgrade these symbols to give you a potentially even bigger win on the reels.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

Graphically speaking, Book of Immortals features bold and striking graphics. It takes place in the sandy dunes of Ancient Egypt with a dusky blueish purplish sky overhead along with a tall pyramid illuminating a bright white light in the background. Symbols feature a rather futuristic design which is refreshing to see for an Ancient Egyptian themed slot and consist of Ra, Anubis, Bastet, Khnum, along with classic A – 10 playing card icons. The animations are a real visual treat as symbols burst into life when part of a win on the reels as they proceed to enlarge and move about onscreen. A special mention for the Scarab Swap feature as when triggered, Scarabs will rapidly swarm the reels to upgrade symbols. It’s a really neat animation sequence.

The music is atmospheric with lots of stringed and percussion instruments playing in the background. It fits in nicely with the fast-paced gameplay.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 10 paylines, a solid RTP of 96.31%, and a low maximum payout worth 638X your total bet.

Our Verdict on Book of Immortals

This game is produced by renowned software studio iSoftBet and is yet another jaunt to Ancient Egypt but one that’s far more memorable than most. It features slick graphics, a superb matching soundtrack, along with a host of impressive bonus features. The Scarab Swap feature is quite lucrative as it can upgrade up to 10 symbols at a time although it did not trigger too much while playing. The standout attraction is Free Spins as you can benefit from Extra Free Spins, Multipliers, along with Expanding Symbols that can expand and remain in place for the entire feature if you are lucky enough to get a God symbol here. The top prize for this game is a decent 638X your total bet which can be won on any spin. Variance-wise, it is Low to Medium so expect to win quite regularly but note that some payouts do tend to err on the small side.
