Playson’s new slot: Book of Gold Multichance
When you think of the slot industry, where does you mind travel to? The classics usually. The leprechaun slots, the vampire-inspired ones, the historical ones? The main one that springs to everyone’s mind is the Egyptian themed slots that are so well integrated into the world of slots. Notable ones are the Mummy, Pharaoh’s Gold II and the Crown of Egypt. But don’t despair if these aren’t your favourites, as there is a new slot on the market.
Playson has introduced their brand-new video slot into the realm of gaming. Book of Gold: Multichance offers a simplistic but fun Egyptian themed slot which plays into the popularised Book of God slots which are so sort after by players. Set out with 5 reels and three rows, there is plenty for the player to win across the 10 pay lines that are on offer for the player. With Special Expanding Symbols, Free Spin modes and scatters to play with, there is plenty for any player to enjoy.
Bet Strategy and RTP
The betting range for this slot is average for what we are used to seeing on the casino floors today. Starting at 10p this increases up to a maximum of £100. This is perfect for all betters, both those who are more conservative with their bets and those who splash the cash on their wagers. The RTP, or return to player, is set rather low at 95%, which means that for every £100 you spend, you will get approximately £95 back. While this is not exactly correct, due to this being calculated over millions of spins, and the potential your spins have is not known, this is lower than we’d like to be seeing as it is set below average.
The highest possible pay out from Book of Gold: Multichance is 10,000 times the stake, which when you compare to the low RTP is very impressive. This gives the player approximately £1,000,000 as a top prize to be won and we do not think that that is something anyone should miss out on.
Symbols and theme of the slot
The theme of the slot is quite overdone in today’s markets, some might say, with Egyptian themed slot popping up what seems like every single week. With the classic gold and blue running through the slot, the backdrop is a golden glow of different Egyptian gods in statue form, with stunning blue rims around the top of the sides. The reels on the other hand are royal blue, encased in golden trim with stunning gold and blue poles dividing the reels as they spin.
The lower paying symbols for the player are represented as the royals: A, K, Q, J and 10. The A is shown in gold, the K in red, the Q in green, the J in blue and the 10 in a deep purple. These work together to give the player plenty of chances of winning big as they spin the reels for bigger wins.
The higher paying symbols include the blue ankh, the green Pharaoh eye, the red falcon and the orange backed head of a Pharaoh. The blue and the green pay out the least, then the falcon with the Pharaoh paying out the most, even more than the scatter.
The scatter symbol for this slot is the Golden book in all it’s celestial glory. This aids in the features as well as acting like a wild would and substituting for other symbols for more winning lots!
Free Spins and Special Expanding Symbols
As mentioned above, the scatter is the Golden book which launches the Free Spins feature. This happens when three or more of the books appear on the reels at any one time. This triggers not only the free spins but also the Special Expanding Symbols. The player is initially awarded with 10 free spins and 10 more can be awarded if the player lands more scatters during the free spins feature.
During the free spins, these Special Expanding Symbols will land on the grid, up to a maximum of 9 during the same free spin. They must first be selected before the bonus game starts and any symbol can be chosen except for the scatter. The Special Symbol will then fill the entire reel awarding the player even more wins! The Special Expanding Symbols wins are paid out independently of the bet lines.
Another option the player has is to buy the Free Spins feature, meaning that the player can enter straight into the free spins rather than having to wait to land it. However, we managed to land it quite frequently and win massive rewards from it when we tried.
Whether the Egyptian style is your cup of tea, or you think the past is the past, take note of this slot. The simplistic design, with an added twist of Special Expanding Symbols has given the player plenty to enjoy as they spin the reels for bigger wins. All the time you spin, there is more wins to be had and in our opinion that is a win win. While the RTP is not great, the potential return of £1,000,000 is enough to sway anyone into playing it.
If you love the theme of this one, try Solar Queen, by the same provider Playson. We guarantee you will not be disappointed. However there is no harm in spinning away a few wins with this stunning slot that has the potential to offer you much more than a few decent spins!
