A stylised, futuristic take on the classic ancient Egyptian-themed slot is what you’ll find in Book of Immortals, a 5 reel, 20 payline game from iSoftBet. Look out for swarms of scarabs that can fly onto the reels and transform symbols. There’s also a bonus round that awards 10 free spins (initially) complete with special expanding symbols that pay scatter style. Play on all devices from between 10p and £10 per spin.
The design here is superbly done. The theme here might be ancient but there’s a glossy, futuristic feel to the design. Joining the A to 10 symbols are a quartet of highly stylised Egyptian animal gods. The best of these is Anubis the jackal which awards 15 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline.
The Book of Immortals acts as both the wild and the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll receive an award equal to 2, 20 or 200 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 10 free spins.
On each free spin, 1 symbol is chosen at random. This symbol expands and fills the whole of the reels whenever it hits during the feature. The animal god symbols can become immortal, expanding to fill the whole reel for the whole of the round. The expanded symbols can pay scatter style too. Re-triggers are also possible.
On any spin you could also land the Scarab Swap feature. A swarm of scarab beetles fly across the reels – they can land on up to 10 symbols. The scarabs then transform those symbols so that they form a new and upgraded winning combination.
Book of Immortals is an Egyptian-themed slot that looks like a Hollywood superhero movie. The design is super slick and there’s some impressive features to match.
The stacked symbols in the free spins round can really get things shifting. It’s possible to win 638 times your total stake from a single spin/free spin here. We enjoyed this modern take on a classic theme. If you like myth and legend, the suped up Book of Immortals is one to discover. I would rather play iSoftBet’s Jumbo Stampede which is a lot more volatile.
