Free Book of Immortals slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Book of Immortals slot from iSoftBet has that magic first word in the title which no doubt will have you confidently predicting the mechanic of the game from the outset. I cannot contradict that as it seems developers everywhere are getting their own version of the famous Novomatic Book of Ra Deluxe format, most famously Play'n Go with Book of Dead and recently Microgaming thought it was a great idea to clone the game themselves with Book of Oz, only to then clone that very slot a short while after with Bookie of Odds! In the case of Book of Immortals iSoftBet have at least retained the Egyptian temple theme and added some bright colours to the symbols you expect here, and there's even an attempt to add something interesting on top. Let's hope our bankroll turns out to be immortal too.
On The Reels...
Of course there are 10 fixed pay lines on Book of Immortal with the Blue Books here appearing singly on all reels and acting as both scatter and Wild and offering the best 5-of-a-kind pay at 200x bet. Thereafter the volatility you will notice is significantly lower than usual on this type of game mechanic as firstly the normal symbols appear stacked and secondly the best, Horus, only pays 15x bet for the 5. Ra is 10x, Goat 8x, Cat 5x and five card values at either 4x or 2.5.
I said they'd tried to add add something interesting here and it is the random Scarab Swap. Randomly, a swarm of Scarab Beetles may appear and switch up to 10 positions on the grid for a potentially bigger win.
Nothing new here as 3 or more Book Wilds will trigger 10 free spins, which can't be retriggered but a moving reel selects a symbol to act as an expanding scatter until it wins, then the symbol changes. So 2 or more in view if a picture icon or 3 or more in view if a card value, will expand wherever they land to fill the reel. It's effectively a 10x multiplier on wins as there's 10 paying lines. The dynamic expanding scatter changes as I said instead of being fixed for the duration of the free games, but you can also land on +3 symbols too to get extra spins.
Book of Immortal isn't a particularly adventurous entrance into the Book of Ra mechanic by iSoftBet at all, but some players who are wary of the high volatility usually applied to this type of slot may like a less risky experience for their money. The slot looks and sounds good with decent animations with the stacked symbols producing regular pays to keep your bankroll alive. Free spins of course aren't going to produce those 1000x plus hits possible on many other versions, but they can still rack up a decent amount. Personally I'm not sure it hits the mark for me as a player as I like the high-variance thrill of other versions, but that's no reason for players not to enjoy it...
