Blending myth, legend and adventure the latest release to hit the online shelves at Bell Fruit Casino is Book of Stars.
Created by Novomatic, it’s a highly volatile 20 payline slot that comes with unusual design and a potentially spectacular bonus feature. We’re sometimes a little unkind about the look of some of Novomatic’s slots but the design in Book of Stars is actually pretty good. Flanked by Greek marble pillars and overlooked by ancient astronomers, the reels include and assortment of golden gods, goddesses and wise old owls. Most rewarding is the female adventurer who offers awards of up to 5,000 coins per payline.
The mysterious Book of Stars serves a dual purpose, acting as both a wild and a scatter. Find 3 or more of them on the same spin to trigger the Free Games feature – here you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. Before the feature begins, 1 symbol will be chosen at random. When it lands during the feature, it expands to fill the whole of that reel. The special expanding symbol can also pay scatter style.
During the feature, you can also win an extra 10 free spins. You can further boost your winning chances by activating the Extra Bet option. This will set you back an extra 5 coins per spin. In return, you’ll see special wild ring symbols added to reels 2 and 4 which replace all symbols – this allows you to trigger the Free Games feature more easily as well as form winning combos in the feature too.
Like many slots in the Novomatic catalogue, Book of Stars is a high variance game. Expect some lengthy winless spells but watch out when you trigger the feature round, especially if you land a high value symbol as the special expander. The visuals reminded us a little of the Da Vinci Code and have a slightly creepy feel. The soundtrack is reassuringly familiar though.
You usually know what you’re going to get when you fire up a Novomatic slot and all the staples are present and correct in Book of Stars. The highlight, as usual, is the Free Games feature. Get lucky there and there could be a magical spell waiting to be discovered – check out the Book of Stars slot review for full details.
