The slot has an awe-inspiring theme like a movie plot with an archaeologist excavating hidden secrets from the ruins of Egyptian civilization. The game starts with a beautiful intro and the finding of two books that have secret codes of ancient magic in them. Both the reels and the symbols of the pyramid, tomb, and pharaoh statue with the archaeologist have a looming spirit of adventure and enigma to them. The game also has fresh discoveries of regular multipliers ranging from 1x, 2.5x, 3x, 4x, 10x, 15x, 40x, 75x, 100x, 200x, and 500x with upto 40+10 free spins and a 170% increase of prizes with power bet. The top win for the game is a bejewelled 15,000x gained from the game. The RTP is a well-rounded 96.11% to support higher payouts. However, the volatility associated with this game is quite high (similar to most other Relax Gaming slots) and therefore disadvantageous. Higher payouts would be very skewed and sporadic. Players get to experience the oracle of the books for free with the Book of Power demo game. More of such mysterious and plot-heavy slots can be tried from the same provider. Check out Marching Legions with a grand top win of 10,000x, with a 98.12% RTP, or Money Train 2 with a 50,000x max win.
The game has an abundance of free spins feature and power bets that amplifies the total wins and are given as follows:
3 Blue Books start the free spins round and trigger 10 free spins. 4 of these Books trigger 15 free spins while 5 of these trigger 20 free spins. An additional Expanding Symbol appears that expands to fill all 10 paylines and triggers an extra 5 free spins with 2 Book occurrences with a +1 multiplier.
Power Free Spins
3 Red Books starts the free spins to trigger 10 power free spins. 4 occurrences of the Red Books award 15 power free spins while 5 occurrences of the Books award 20 power free spins. An Expanding Symbol also appears here and triggers 5 extra power-free spins with 2 Book occurrences with a +1 multiplier. In this round, the Books appearing on reels 2, 3, or 4 can turn the reels golden.
The Power Bet increases the chance to trigger Power Spins or Free Spins by 170%. However, an increased 100% has to be spent on it.
The Hot Mode assists the free spins and increases the chances of getting free spins faster.
A Buy Feature requires 100x the regular bet for Free Spins and 200x the regular bet for Power Spins and is available in the Book of Power real money game.
RTP and Payouts
The game has a privileging RTP of 96.11% with a high volatility. Fundamentally, high RTP is favourable for larger payouts, but high volatility could steal away the chances of frequent larger payouts. The card deck icons 10, J, Q, K, and A, wrapped in Egyptian jewellery are the low-paying icons and have a payout range of 0.5x-10x for 3 - 5 occurrences. The pyramid, tomb, pharaoh statue, and archaeologist are high-paying symbols and have a payout of 0.5x-500x for 2 - 5 occurrences. The Blue and Red Books are also high-paying symbols and pay 1x-500x for 2 - 5 occurrences. The payouts are offered at the max bet of $60. Book of Power free game can be used as a trial version by anyone interested in the game.
Max Win and Top Multiplier
