Book of Souls is a video slot created by GiG Games set in the rainy jungles of South America. Hot on the heels of her latest discovery, archaeologist Lara Jones must rush over and secure the ancient tome. There will be hindrances along the way – pouring rain and her arch nemesis will both do their best to stop her. The question is will our heroine reach the treasure before she’s stopped by a lawsuit for being a Lara Croft rip-off?
Jokes aside, this game has some beautiful graphics. Sadly, the special features are not as impressive. Anyone who has played slots for a while will find them quite familiar. You have randomly spawned Wilds and a free spins special feature with expanding symbols. Despite the somewhat uninspired offering, players can still net a maximum prize worth 500x.
Play Book of Souls
We quite like the icon design in this GIG Games release. You have the standard playing card royals: 10, J, Q, K and A, done in an archaic, Mayan style. We usually dislike numbers and letters in our games, so this was a pleasant surprise. You can also find the Mayan calendar, a golden idol, a man with a gun, and not-Lara Croft on the playing field. She is the most valuable symbol, valued at 500x your stake.
How to Play
The slot is played on a 5x3 board with 10 fixed paylines. The layout is easy to navigate and stays out of your way. It allows gamblers to lean back and appreciate the beautiful graphics.
The Spin button takes its rightful place at the very centre of the playing field. The Autoplay button is on the left side of the Spin button, while the total bet button is to its right. Clicking it will let you choose from a number of pre-approved options. You can set your wager between $0.10 up to $100 per spin.
Gather three or more identical icons in consecutive position from left to right to land a win. The winning combination has to follow one of the 10 active paylines Otherwise, it does not count.
Strategy & Tips
Book of Souls comes with a neat gift that many players will learn to love. The brown-golden book is both Wild and Scatter. However, it is separate from Snake Wilds that can randomly appear on the board.
To get Snake Wilds, you have to activate Snake Spins first! There’s no method behind it. Just keep spinning until it fires, and creates between three to ten Wilds on the playing field. This increases your chances of landing a satisfying cash prize, but there are no guarantees.
Collect three or more Scatters to win 10 free spins. Before they start, one icon can be randomly selected as a bonus symbol. This icon will expand vertically and cover the entire reel if the right conditions have been met. It is possible to collect three or more Scatters while the bonus is already active. If that happens, then more free spins are added to the counter.
There are no major differences between the desktop and mobile versions of this slot. There are only minor changes to the controls, to make them easier to use on a touch-screen device.
