Book of Fate
Leave It to the Book of Fate
Book of Fate is very similar to Book of Ra Deluxe, with a comparable Free Spins feature too. When you load this slot, you will be transported thousands of years back in time. Of course, they didn’t have slot machines back then. For sure there were other games and lots of gambling, too!
Along the banks of the river Nile, the ancient Egyptians flourished. Their civilisation was one of the longest-running civilisations in history! For generations, the ancient Egyptians ruled over Egypt in North Africa.
Their customs and culture were so fascinating that they still captivate us today. Every school child has heard of Egyptian mummies and almost anyone could recognise the pyramids of Giza.
Book of Fate is a video slot made by Novomatic that celebrates all things Egyptian. The reels of this game are located in an ancient tomb. The pillars are decorated with hieroglyphs. Next to the pillars, lodged in the sand, you’ll find a few canopic jars. These jars are where the ancient Egypt put dead people’s organs during the process of mummification.
You’ll see lots of symbols in this game that are related to ancient Egypt. As with many other novomatic slots they spin on the reels. There are 5 reels and 10 paylines. In Book of Fate, you can collect your wins or gamble your wins. You can also play Book of Fate by clicking ‘spin’ every time or you can set the reels to spin on their own by activating the autoplay button.
Symbols in the Pages of the Book of Fate
Many of the symbols in this Egyptians-style slot game are similar to those in Book of Ra. In the Novomatic casino corner, you’ve got: 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. Over in the Egyptian corner, there’s the scarab beetle, the Anubis symbol, the mummy mask and the archaeologist. All symbols have 3-match, 4-match and 5-match payouts. The Egyptian symbols also have 2-match payouts.
To win a payout, you have to line the matching symbols up on a payline. Starting from reel 1, the matching symbols must land on successive reels. If you need a little help to get a win, the Scatter symbol can fill in for a missing symbol in a combination. This Scatter symbol is the Book of Fate in all its golden glory!
On the front cover of the Book of Fate is the eye of Horus. To the ancient Egyptians, this was a symbol of power and protection. The amount you win for each winning combination of symbols will depend on the symbol and your bet. Some symbols are worth much more than others.
When you increase or lower your bet size, the potential win amounts are changed accordingly. For accurate information as regards your current bet, you can open the paytable. When you spin the reels and they stop with matching symbols in winning positions, you will be awarded a payout!
You can collect payouts or gamble them. When you collect them, the value will be added to your balance. When you gamble them, you will get a 50% chance of doubling or losing it. Using the gamble game can be very lucrative but it can also be very risky!
Book of Fate Free Spins
The Book of Fate can behave like a Wild symbol to complete a win. It is also the Scatter symbol in this slot game. Scatter symbols are special because they can pay from any position on the reels! They don’t have to conform to paylines!
3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols in any positions will award a payout. 3 or more Scatters will also trigger the Free Spins. The Free Spins in Book of Fate aren’t very unique or imaginative, but they can be crazy generous.
Like in Book of Ra Deluxe, a symbol will be chosen at the beginning of the Free Spins to be the bonus symbol. This bonus symbol can expand to fill all three positions on any reel it lands on. If a card value symbol is chosen as the bonus symbol, it will expand if three or more land on separate reels. If the bonus symbol is a picture (Egyptian) symbol, it will expand when two or more land on the reels. All line wins are paid for this feature, even if the matches aren’t consecutive.
