Book of Destiny Review
Book of Destiny is a 5-reel, 10 payline slot which just so happens to be the first-ever slot created by Print Studios, created alongside industry veterans Relax Gaming. The main pulling power of this Egyptian-themed slot is the free spins bonus that tasks players with choosing their destiny by picking a special symbol that will expand whenever it appears in a winning combination during the feature.
If we're being completely honest it's hard to get excited about Egyptian-themed slots in this day and age, because quite frankly every online slot developer under the sun has created one of their own, especially ones that follows the tried and tested 'Book of' format.
We're always extremely complimentary about Relax Gaming and the games they put out, however, we have to say we were underwhelmed by Book of Destiny. This 5x3 is nothing new by any stretch of the imagination... The reels are adorned with gold trim whilst the symbols are set upon limestone blocks that Pyramids are famously built from.
Low paying symbols are 10, J, Q, K, A whilst high paying symbols to their credit are beautifully drawn characters from ancient Egypt: Anubis, Thoth, Horus and an old Indianna Jones-inspired explorer. The game's scatter symbol also acts as a wild, this is of course the Book of Destiny.
In terms of the game's soundtrack, you know exactly what you're getting before you've even loaded this slot up... That ever-present dramatic Egyptian-inspired tune that all 'Book of' games features.
There's very little for players to wrap their heads around when playing Book of Destiny, as 'Book of' games are usually pretty self-explanatory and feature very little in the way of confusing mechanics.
All of the buttons such as stake selection, spin, autospin and the game settings can be found bunched up together in the bottom right-hand corner of the game screen... That's all there is to it!
Whilst this high volatility slot has a pretty average win potential of 5,000x the player's stake, it does feature a pretty good RTP of 96.50%... So there are definitely opportunities to pick up some big wins, however, they'll mostly (if not always) come by way of the free spins bonus once some of those expanding symbols come into play.
To put it frankly Book of Destiny is a cutter cookie Egyptian themed slot that's saved by a genuinely enjoyable free spins bonus feature, the ability to pick your own expanding symbol really makes a difference here.
It certainly lacks in originality, but it's not the worst slot of its kind by any stretch... If you're into 'Book of' slots then you'll be absolutely fine playing this!
