For those that have played the Stack Em slot, the main character in this game may be familiar. His name is Canny, a yellow tin can that is dressed in formal attire. Canny the Can and the Book of Time is set on the outskirts of a forest, with an animated mouse also making an appearance in the bottom left. The board itself is made of 5 reels, 4 rows, and 20 paylines, with a minimum stake size of 0.10 per spin.
Canny the Can and the Book of Time was produced by Hacksaw Gaming, an established company that has created a variety of big-name slots. They have also created a variety of instant win games, with their 'Dare2Win' series being particularly popular. As for slot machines, titles such as Buffalo Stack'n'sync, Coins Dare2Win and Dork Unit are integral parts of their portfolio.
The standard symbols in Canny the Can and the Book of Time are the typical 10, J, Q, K, and A icons, which have been styled to fit the theme. For premium symbols, there is a magic wand, a witch's hat, a dead bird, a snake's head, and a mouse. These can award players with 50x, 50x, 75x, 75x, or 250x; their stake size, respectively, should five form a combination.
A total of three special symbols also appear in this slot, with the first being a multiplier wild. This icon can only land during the 'What Time Is It?' bonus mode, as covered below. There are also two different types of scatter symbols, a book and a clock.
First up is a bonus known as 'What Time Is It?'. As the name suggests, this mode revolves around a handful of clocks that can be found above reels 2, 3, and 4, each showing a different time. This bonus can be triggered if three clock scatter icons appear during the base game, with players receiving a total of 10 free spins.
A new symbol is introduced during the 'What Time Is It?' bonus, shown as an X. This is the activator icon, and should it appear, the symbol and all other icons above it will turn wild. In addition to this, the wilds will have a multiplier associated with them, depending on the time displayed by the corresponding clock. Should multiple wilds appear across a payline, their values will be added together before being applied to any potential winnings.
There is also a free spins bonus mode that can be triggered if a minimum of three book scatter symbols appear simultaneously. Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatter icons will award players with 10, 15, or 20 free spins alongside 1, 2, or 3 special symbols. Should any of the special symbols land across three or more reels, they will expand and award players with the corresponding potential winnings. It's worth mentioning that expanded symbols will ignore paylines, so they do not need to land next to each other.
During this mode, players will be taken inside a library, with an owl perched to the left of the board itself. The free spins can be retriggered, with three or more books awarding five more plays. Besides offering extra spins, another special symbol will be selected. This can continue until all of the icons are in play, at which point 3 additional scatters will only award five more spins.
With a traditional appearance, detailed symbols, and smooth animations, this slot has a lot to offer in terms of visuals. Of course, the two bonus modes in Canny the Can and the Book of Time can also be appealing, with a fresh twist being applied to an already popular bonus mode.
