Experienced players will immediately notice that the slot is undoubtedly based on the great model “Book of Ra.” Like this one, Book of Gods is also set in ancient Egypt, but historically it doesn’t take it quite as seriously – as the many fantasy elements impressively prove. Your goal is to challenge the gods to reveal their secrets and secure their treasures. You get the opportunity to do this on a total of five reels. The visual presentation is impressive, including a frequently changing background that interacts interactively with the gameplay and the respective deity.
There is also a short intro; the sunny backdrop puts you in a good mood. You can also enjoy the impressive view of green, fertile landscapes and majestic mountain ranges. A total of four gods are represented in the game, those of the afterlife, the sun, the moon, and the earth.
HOW TO PLAY BOOK OF GODS
Book of Gods works with both classic and themed symbols, which are evenly distributed across the five reels. Unlike the releases of Big Time Gaming in the recent past, however, the Megaways feature is omitted. What there is, however, is the cloning feature. For this purpose, a book with a symbol is displayed on the left side, which always displays one of the classic symbols. If that symbol becomes part of the winning combination on one of the paylines, the reels with that symbol are completely taken over by that one – which then results in a payout with cloned reels.
There is also a Pity feature. This is to ensure that even the most unlucky people will eventually make it into the bonus round. This is important because the bonus round promises particularly high winnings because all god symbols automatically become bonus symbols, which improves both the chances of winning and the multiplier. The Pity feature gives you access to the “Feature Drop.” There you can buy such free spins, figuratively speaking. Initially, the price is still quite high, but with more coins won, which can appear randomly, it is reduced. So the longer you play, the cheaper the “purchase” into the bonus round becomes.
An important peculiarity, which should not go unmentioned, is the choice of the gods. At the beginning of the game, you will have the opportunity to choose a god who will be at your side. The chosen deity works identically to the cloning feature described above, so you will have the opportunity to make further combinations within the reels by combining them with the previously selected god name outside the actual playing field. Once you’ve spun at least three scatter symbols, more deities will be added. Once all four gods are active, you increase the number of free spins you have.
THE ODDS OF WINNING
As usual, from Big Time Gaming, Book of Gods also has a high variance. As quickly as you make bigger wins, you can also lose your bankroll. Lucky and unlucky streaks therefore alternate regularly – and both have a big effect on your balance. The RTP is 96.35%. The win factor is a minimum of 0.5x from the bet, and a maximum of 4,985x from the bet. In total, you have the opportunity to achieve success on at least 243 paylines. The decisive factor is which symbols you get on the reels.
