Theme - Audio and Design Features – join heroin Lara Jones

book-of-spies-mission-x-slot-base-game

The Book of Spies: Mission X slot has a spy theme. It’s based on the intrepid and beautiful heroin Lara Jones. She leads a team of secret agents on an impossible mission to hack the digital vaults of an evil spy master to steal the ‘Book of Spies’.

Visually, the game is well designed and comes with high definition graphics. The Lara Jones character is clearly inspired by the infamous Lara Croft character. Set on dark reels, the soundtrack is upbeat and reminiscent of the Mission Impossible films.

On the reels you will see low value neon A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols. The high paying symbols include members of Lara Jones’ team. You have Extreme Hack Henry, Big Tech Terry, One Shot Suzie and Evil Spy Master. The Evil Spy Master is the most valuable symbol giving you 1, 2.5 or 15 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination. He looks like the Le Chiffre character from James Bond’s Casino Royale film.

Book of Spies: Mission X can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. The superb graphics and animations work well on smartphones.

Bonus Features in Book of Spies: Mission X

The Book of Spies: Mission X slot focuses on the xNudge Tombstone Wilds feature which is central to most of the action. With increasing multipliers, there are 2 free spins features with 1 of them giving you sticky tombstone wilds.

xWays Mystery Symbol feature

There’s an xWays logo which is the mystery symbol. It can contain 2 to 4 of the same symbol inside which will expand the reel up to 7 symbols high. This will increase the number of ways to win essentially.

In the base game, the xWays mystery symbol can appear on the odd-numbered reels (i.e. 1, 3 and 5). This means you can benefit from 5 symbols on reels 2 and 4 with 7 symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. This can lead to 5,488 ways to win on every base game spin (7x4x7x4x7 = 5,488).

xNudge Multiplier Wilds feature

Look out for the Lara Jones wild symbol. Appearing on reels 2 and 4, the wild always nudges upwards to replace all symbols above it.

Known as the xNudge Multiplier Wilds feature, each nudge increases the wild multiplier by 1 up to a maximum of 4x. If it’s combined with an xWays Mystery symbol above it, the multiplier can reach a maximum of 7x. However, 2 wild multipliers landing simultaneously will see the wild multiplier values multiplied together up to 8x in the base game.

Secret Agent Free Spins feature

book-of-spies-mission-x-slot-secret-agent-free-spins-feature

The Secret Agent Free Spins feature is triggered by landing 3 Book of Spies bonus symbols on the reels simultaneously (they can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5).

The number of free spins you will win is 1 plus the number of nudges required to nudge the symbol the bottom position of the reel. Every nudge gives you an extra free spin. This means you can begin with between 3 and 21 free spins.

Prior to the free spins beginning, 1 of the 4 high value spy symbols becomes the special symbol. Once a free spin has taken place and 3 or more reels contain a special symbol, they will expand to cover the whole reel it’s on. The good new is that expanded special symbols will pay scatter style – i.e. not on adjacent reels.

The xWays Mystery Symbol feature is also in play. With mystery symbols appearing on all 5 reels, every reel can contain 7 symbols each. If you do this, you will play with 16,807 ways to win (7x7x7x7x7 = 16,807).

Wild symbols can also land and trigger the xNudge Multiplier Wilds feature. However, the maximum possible multiplier can reach 14x (as opposed to 8x in the base game). Furthermore, you can retrigger the feature to give you up to 42 free spins in total. The original special symbol will be used for the extra free spins.

Finally, you can buy your way into the free spins for 70 x your total stake. Giving you 10 free spins, this option isn’t available to UK players.

Book of Spies: Mission X Review Summary – excellent first franchise

Spearhead Studios and Nolimit City have combined to deliver an excellent franchise of the xWays and xNudge mechanics. The Book of Spies: Mission X slot is well designed and has all the bells and whistles we’ve become accustomed to from Nolimit City slots.

Saying that, it’s easy to follow and can give you a huge number of ways to win in the free spins. The key to winning big is from the multipliers which can combine up to 14x. The Secret Agent Free Spins feature combines increasing ways to win and multipliers with the same mechanic from the classic Book of Ra Deluxe slot (by Novomatic).

‘Book of’ slots are very common these days but Spearhead Studios has managed to add a fresh twist to the popular concept and with much bigger wins than the likes of Book of Dead. Overall, a superb game that will appeal to many players.
