Book of Gold Classic Slot Gameplay
Once you have set your bet level, hit “spin” and try and land groups of symbols across the ten paylines in play. There are ten symbols in this game with various returns available and a couple of bonus features.
The lowest value symbols are made up of the 10 – Q card symbols in bright colours and a font that wouldn’t look out of place on the streets of Cairo. There are slightly higher returns available from the K and A symbols that are designed in the same way as the other cards.
The medium value symbols in play are the Ankh and the Eye of Horus that trigger higher pay offs when they land across paylines. These symbols offer a consolation payment for just two across a payline.
You will see payouts get more exciting with combinations of the Horus symbols: the main game jackpot is won by landing 5 of the Pharoah symbols across a payline.
There is also a Book of Gold Scatter symbol that will reward the same payout as the Horus symbol as well as triggering bonus features. The Book of Gold symbol is also this slot’s Wild.
Book of Gold Classic Bonus Features
The Book of Gold symbol doubles up as the Wild that helps to make symbol combinations by substituting for any base game symbol across a payline. When they land on the grid, these Wild symbols can represent any of the main game symbols to help you make up a win.
The main bonus feature here is the Free Spins, triggered by landing three or more of the Book of Gold bonus Scatters in a single spin. As well as rewarding a payout, you will get 10 Free Spins, during which you may see expanding symbols. Before the spin, a base game symbol is selected at random which will expand to fill an entire reel whenever a winning combination is on the cards.
