We are still not sure what the fascination of software companies and books are, but in our experience it is a sign that we are in for a wild ride. This time around Nolimit City has added their creative flair to the table, and it is on full display in Book of Shadows.
The design of Book of Shadows is unlike other ‘Book of’ slots we have seen. You will find yourself in a creepy forest that is littered with the bones of lost souls. This creepy set up is amplified with the slots soundtrack which sends chills down the spine. The howling wolves and night owls are enough for us to play this particular slot with the lights on!
Bets are placed from 10 cents up to a maximum of 100 dollars per spin. The 5 reel setup features adjustable rows. Players can elect to play from between 3 and 5 rows and with each additional row selected a multiplier will be added to all winnings. Depending on how many rows are active players can expect an RTP of between 96.01% up to 96.19%. This means that the more rows you choose to play with the higher your chances of winning are (well at least on average). As you may have guessed this Nolimit slot is considered ‘extreme’ when it comes to volatility, which may worry some and excite others.
Book of Shadows features ten standard symbols which are used to make winning combinations from left to right. Your low value symbols include the 10- Ace royal playing card symbols. Your higher paying symbols are the eyeball, skull of a goat, butterfly, the cat and a creepy witch lady. Premium symbols pay out generously, with 5 of a kind awarding players from between 50-500 times their bet.
Your bonus symbol is the book symbol, which acts as both the Wild and scatter. As a wild the book symbol substitutes for other symbols on the reels to form winning combinations. As a scatter the book symbol will trigger free spins by landing 3 or more on a combination.
The two key bonus features in Book of Shadows are the expandable symbol feature and Free spin bonus round.
Free spins are activated when players land 3 or more book scatter symbols on the reels, which will award players 10 free spins. Before free spins begin a golden symbol is chosen at random, and will fill the entire reel. Expanded symbols pay out all win lines regardless of position and the result is staggering.
On average players can expect to trigger the bonus game at least once in every 154 spins. However, plates can opt to buy into the bonus games which will cost 60-120x your stake (depending on how many rows you select to apply to free spins) for 10 free spins.
Book of Shadows is a refreshing change to the ‘Book of’ genre which we see so much of in online slots today. Although there may be a few familiar features players will find the overall experience quite enjoyable. Being able to select the number of active rows available is something some players may find annoying, but for those who enjoy personalizing the slot to their particular playing style, they will be thrilled with this addition. The theme has been done really well and is probably one of the creepiest slots you will play. Definitely give this one a try!
