The design sees the use of a dark background with are coupled with some pastel-coloured symbols which are all created to great effect in the Book of Loki slot. The symbols are beautifully drawn to take in the Norse theme in a comic book style. In the background there is a haunting musical score playing and this continues as you spin your reels. One good feature with this slot is that you can amend the music and sound effects through the settings.

The Norse God is the most rewarding symbol and if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a pay line you will be rewarded with a pay-out that is equal to 1x 10x, 100x, or 500 x your stake, respectively.
Game Play & Statistics
When it comes to the game play this slot plays out over 5-reels. 3-rows and 10 pay lines and wins are created by landing three or more matching symbols moving from the most left reel to right, however, it is worth remembering that with the higher value symbols you only need to land two for a win.
Book of Loki is a straightforward slot with a simple interface. By clicking on the three lines that you will see on the left-hand side of your screen you can access various symbols and by clicking on the pay table you gain access to the pay table or alternatively by clicking on the “I” button you can gain the game information. The design is sharp and crisp and comes complete with a sweeping soundtrack. The slot is available to play on all devices and works well even on the smallest of screens.
When it comes to placing your bet, you can bet from a minimum of 10p per spin up to a maximum of £25 per spin. In the left-hand corner of the screen, you can change your bet to the amount you are comfortable playing with. There is an auto play function, and you can set by using the arrow button that you can see on the game page, and these can be set from 5 and 99 spins. It is also possible to set loss and feature stop limits as well as a quick spin feature. In the same as most slots form the developers at 1x2 Gaming you can flip the set up so that the game controls are on the other side of the screen.
Book of Loki offers a return to player of 95.8% which although a little lower than competitors and this is a highly volatile slot with a maximum pay-out that stands at a respectable 5,000x your total stake.
As legend states Loki was a mischievous character and whilst his tricky nature is not that evident, and the game play is basic. There is only a single bonus feature, and this is one that you will most likely have seen before.
The mysterious Book of Loki symbol has dual purpose as it is the wild that can replace all the regular symbols. It is also the games scatter and landing 3, 4 or 5 on the same spin and you will be rewarded with 2x, 20x or 200x your total stake. This is also the way you can trigger the single feature in this slot and once triggered you are immediately awarded 10 free spins. This is the same whether you activate the feature with 3, 4 or 5 scatters.
Prior to the free spins beginning one symbol is chosen at random and will become the special expanding symbol, and every time the symbol appears during the free spins it will expand and fill the entire reel or even better reels. The special expanding symbol pays out in the same style as the scatter in the feature and the symbols do not have to be on adjoining reels for you to create a win. Therefore, matching symbols on your 1st, 3rd, and 5th reels will still create a winning combination for you.
The wild scatters cannot substitute for the expanding symbol during the free spins although it is possible to retrigger the feature by landing three or more of the Book of Loki on the same spin and you will then reactivate a further 10 free spins.
Book of Loki is a simple slot and the developers at 1x2 Gaming have done the best things by not overcomplicating things. Although there is only the single free spin feature with expanding symbols, but this is worth landing as you could end up with the maximum pay-out of 5,000x your stake.
It is true that the feature has been used in a lot of slots and although not what you would describe as innovative it does provide you with plenty of opportunities to land the big wins. I enjoyed paying this slot as I like the basic aspect coupled with the volatility and would have no hesitation recommending it to other players both new, beginners or the more advanced.
