Book of Shadows Review
You can never tell what is really in the shadows - that is until this slot. Hidden deep within the shadows is a book that alters reality and this is called the Book of Shadows. Set in the shadows, this horror slot plays on 5-reels with up to 20 different ways to win.
Developed by Nolimit City, Book of Shadows contains Shadow Rows, Lucky Locks and free spins that combine together to help you win up to 30,338x your stake. If you love gothic horror, then this is a slot not to miss.
From the offset, it's clear that there is a dark design to this slot. The reels are set in the dark depths of the forest with various creatures and mysterious beings lurking in the background. From time to time, you'll notice a cat running past as well as a dark silhouette. Thankfully, these are animated and give a whole other level of creepiness to the slot.
Naturally, the symbols on the reels are just as eerie. They feature a demonic girl, animal skulls, cats, potions with human parts in and other demonic symbols that would fit perfectly in a horror film. Whilst on the reels, they are animated as well so you'll see the eyeball move or the cat's tail flip back and forth for some scares. Perhaps, the greatest level of detail comes from the reels having various demonic symbols underneath them which is incredible.
As for the music, there is a violin score with chimes and chants in the background just to add an extra level of fear. Aside from that, you'll hear occasional noises from the forest just to add even more scares to the slot.
Despite having vibrant features, the gameplay is just like any other slot. That is until you decide to select your rows with the Shadow Rows to completely change your gameplay and have even more ways to win. Anything you could need can be found on the sides of the reels with the spin button to the right and other menus just to the left.
Sadly, Book of Shadows without the Buy Features actually has quite a terrible RTP of 94.09% which is way below the average. Thankfully, the maximum win is better with the maximum being 30,338x your stake which can be reached through the Shadow Rows and locking reels. A bigger payout is expected in this slot as it's a high volatility slot.
In terms of aesthetics, this slot is utter brilliance! The gothic design and overall 'creep' factor are completely fantastic. This paired with the fun element of the Shadow Rows and the spooktacular payout of 30,338x your stake makes this a slot that you'd be silly to not check out.
Book of Shadows is definitely a slot that you'll have to play with the lights on as it can be quite terrifying at times (especially with the audio in headphones) but don't let that put you off it. For a terrific time, check out Book of Shadows.
