The slot is set in a dark underground chamber that could also be classified as a secret lair. It is centered around an archaeological uncovering of Egyptian relics. The background and reels both fit the theme with the towering statues of gods and pharaohs and the scribblings of hieroglyphics on the walls. The symbols are equally mystical and eloquent as they show the scarab beetle, the god Horus, and a sarcophagus denoting Egypt along with the Book and the archaeologist. The Book of Magic is the titular book and contains the secrets and magic of Egypt. The game has regular multipliers of 1x, 2x, 2.5x, 3x, 4x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 40x, 75x, 100x 200x, and 500x with 10 free games and 9 expanding symbols. The top win is an effective 500x through the archaeologist. However, the 95.10% RTP is ineffectual while the high volatility lessens the chance to gain top prizes. The question is, would players feel comfortable betting a whooping $2,000 while pursuing the max win at a borderline RTP? Players can search for these secret treasures for free with the Book of Ra Magic demo game. More slots can be tried from the same provider. Check out Book of Ra with a top win of 5,000x, or Dolphin’s Pearl with a top win of 900x.
The main bonus includes free games with expanding symbols that can be retriggered multiple times.
The Book of Magic is the scatter of the game. 3 or more of the Book scatters trigger 10 free games and awards expanding symbols.
The expanding feature starts with the free games with regular symbols. Any one of the symbols expands to fill 3 positions. If free games are retriggered, one additional symbol expands to fill up 3 positions. 9 expanding symbols can be gained from the game.
The expanding symbols pay real money with the Book of Ra Magic real money game.
