Inspired by epic-fantasy tales and medieval legends, Book of Magic is a medium to high volatility slot by EGT, with reels set against a background which appears to be an enchanted forest. The theme is pretty much opened to interpretations and you can make it whatever you want it to be.
Looking at the high-value symbols, the legend of Merlin the Enchanter has had an obvious impact on the designers, since the wizard's respectable figure is one of the best paying symbols, along with the female character, who is likely to represent his arch-enemy, Morgana.
The Magic Book Wild is the highest value symbol which increases the payout potential when combined with other icons. The Magic Ring, Dragonfly, and the Treasure Chest are the medium value icons while A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 are the lowest ranking icons.
Book of Magic is played on 20 paylines, with an option to reduce the number of lines to 1, 5, 10 and 15 pay-lines by clicking on the relevant number displayed on either side of the game screen. The value of credits can range from 1 to 3 and up to 20 coins can be wagered on a single line. If you select all 20 paylines and maximise the coin value, the total bet will reach 1,200 coins. The return to the player percentage is estimated at 96.06%.
AutoPlay button is placed next to the info tab and clicking on it will initiate auto spins. The fast play will last until the player stops it manually as there are no advanced settings that will forcibly quit the AutoPlay and return the player in the standard game mode.
The value of symbols will depend on the betting level; in this slot, Wild is not only generating the highest payouts, it also increases the value of other icons by doubling the winning amount every time it replaces a symbol and completes the combination.
The Scatter icon produces the same payout amount as the Wild (for a combination of 5) and activates Free Spins when at least three of the corresponding icons land on the reels. Every hit during the bonus mode will be multiplied by 3 and additional 15 spins will be awarded for a new Scatter combo that forms on the reels while the feature is still active.
Gamble feature can be used after any spin that results in a win. The amount won can be doubled up to 5 times in a row or lost if the player fails to guess the colour of the card turned upside down.
Jackpot Cards Mystery Bonus is unlocked randomly and each of the card suit jackpots can be won if the player matches three card suits out of the 12 cards facing down.
Strong and weak points of Book of Magic slot
The best part of playing Book of Magic is that there are no qualifying bets for unlocking and winning the Mystery Jackpot bonus, which means that any spin can end up in the highest level payout.
Re-triggerable Free Spins which triple the winnings, along with the Wilds that double the value of a combination are really a cherry on top and the only drawback is that x2 multiplier is not applied to all-Wild combos.
With the multiplying bonus features and jackpots potentially lurking around every corner, Book of Magic minor defects such as crude visuals can be easily disregarded. There is also an issue of dry spins every now and then, but it's to be expected from a slot that goes towards high volatility.
