If you’ve played a lot of slots in your time, you’ll already be familiar with some of the themes that lend themselves to these games. In part, this is about providing a coherent concept behind the game, and to give players a reason to check out one game over another. But in some instances, it’s about providing a sense of escapism – and that’s exactly what’s on offer with the fantasy tale-themed Book of Fortune, from Amatic Industries.
This is a fairytale story about a princess locked inside an evil wizard’s castle – only you can save her, by spinning up the right combinations! It’s like something out of children’s folklore, and it works well as a concept underpinning Book of Fortune. You’ll find this reflected in the design of the main reels and the symbols adorning them – while the graphics are showing some signs of age these days, it’s still good enough to create a convincing slots challenge.
Look out for the Princess, the Wizard and the Castle amongst other symbols, which make their way onto the reel positions across each of the five reels. You’ll also find high card symbols in place of the low value combination symbols, as is the norm in online slots of this kind. There are 10 paylines across the reels, and you’re paid out winnings for any combinations of three or more symbols of a kind across these paylines.
Book of Fortune clocks in at a 96.00% RTP, or return-to-player percentage. This means that in the long-run, Book of Fortune pays out 96% of its takings in player winnings, creating just a 4% house edge. This compares favourably to other slots, and is significantly better than many other casino games, in terms of the average payout percentage.
Just like another Amatic Industries slot, Eye of Ra, the maximum jackpot on offer is 10,000 coins, and players can spin from as little as £0.10 per spin, up to a maximum of £300 to suit those playing with larger budgets. There’s no telling who could win the jackpot – as long as you’re in for the spin, you could be the next big winner with Book of Fortune.
Book of Fortune is lucky in that it not only benefits from wilds, but also from wild modifiers – additional types of bonus enhancements, which can prove to be very profitable for your game. The game logo is the wild symbol, and under ordinary circumstances, it acts in the usual way, substituting for any missing symbols to help you complete your payline winners. Only the scatter is excluded here, which you must land sufficient times on its own in order to trigger the bonus feature.
With the wild modifiers, these are triggered when you land a diamond scatter symbol on each of the odd numbered reels. This triggers a random bonus, which is determined by a single wheel spin once the feature has been triggered.
Bonuses & Jackpot
There are a number of different bonus features that can be triggered from the spinning wheel, assuming you’ve landed the scatters and wild you need to trigger the bonus award. Depending on where the wheel lands, you might be in for a more or less generous bonus feature.
There’s the Wheel of Fortune feature, where you can win anywhere up to 50x your spin stake on on a single whirl of the wheel. Then there’s Raining Wilds, which offers up to 10 free spins, with a collection of new wilds thrown onto your reels.
You might be lucky and spin the Super Wilds feature, which gives you the same 10 free spins, plus some added extras, in the form of accruing wilds – these add up over the round, and drop for a final, additional ‘super spin’, where some huge wins could lie in store.
Finally, there’s the Progressive Free Spins feature, where players can pick up 20 free spins, with the opportunity for stacked wilds to appear on your reels, offering significant winning potential.
Play Book of Fortune at PartyCasino
Book of Fortune is the kind of slot that will either appeal to you, or very much not, depending on your interaction with the theme. But it would be a shame to discount this offhand, especially when the theme is such a small part of what is otherwise a potentially very lucrative game. The bonus features with the wild and scatter in particular are something to behold, and more than enough reason to take this slot for a spin when you get the chance.
