Just when players started to think that another Egyptian-themed slot couldn't possibly add anything else to the realm of online gaming, Book of Slingo appears. Not only does this game follow an incredibly popular theme, but it is also packed with features as well as immersive graphics. This game is played across 5 reels, with the potential to land a maximum of 11 Slingo lines during a single round.
This game was created by one of the most popular Slingo providers in the world, Slingo Originals. They have an extensive portfolio of similar games, based on a whole variety of different themes. Some of these include Slingo Racing, Egyptian Emeralds Powerplay, and the highly praised Slingo Starburst.
Book of Slingo is visually appealing and has smooth animations, allowing players to be fully immersed in the action. Getting started with this slot can be done with a minimum of 0.10 per round.
Besides the numbers themselves, there are a few additional symbols during the base game. There are wilds and super wilds, with wilds allowing players to cross off a symbol on the same reel. Super wilds, on the other hand, mean that any number on the board can be eliminated manually.
There is also a scatter symbol, shown as a book, which is linked to the bonus mode. Additional spin icons can also appear, which grants an additional set of 5 numbers. The last icon in the base game is a blocker, which does nothing but takes up some valuable space on the reel below.
For players that make it to the bonus round, the symbols that can land include the standard 10, J, Q, K, and Ace icons.
Next is a crocodile and bird, both dressed in golden attire. Up from there is a pharaoh, with 5 awarding 20x the stake size. The top symbol is the Eye of Horus, which can grant a maximum potential win of 50x when 5 match. Books from the base game also become wild symbols within the bonus mode.
There is one main bonus within Book of Slingo, which will take players to a 5x3 slot, where they will play a total of 10 free spins. To access the bonus, players that achieve 8, 9, 10, or 11 Slingos can choose to exchange their potential winnings in order to spin the featured slot.
Additionally, the expanding symbol will directly correspond with the number of Slingos exchanged. The more Slingos, the more desirable the expanding symbol, with 11 awarding the Eye of Horus. Once expanded, matching combinations have a better chance of appearing across one or more paylines.
In addition to exchanging Slingos, the same bonus can be triggered by landing 3, 4, or 5 books within the base game. These will award 10, 15, and 20 free spins, respectively. Should any of these books appear across the bonus slot reels, they will award the same value as the Eye of Horus, which is 50x the bet size.
Perhaps the standout feature of this slot is that players have the option to either be awarded a fixed value, or a bonus feature. The ability to let players choose their own potential winnings can be a highly entertaining experience!
