The rigid nature of having no winlines is undeniable, simply because you can reduce or increase as you require, however with the lack of adaptability comes plentiful wins. A lot of reviews about this slot actually downplay how generous the victories can be. During our playthrough, we landed three wilds and ended up with a 36 way win, which resulted in over 100 credits. Then a couple of rounds later, we had an even larger 150 way win.
Granted this won’t happen every time, but even when we only got a win of 18 credits, it felt more than satisfactory enough considering how often we were getting the larger successes. You might even say that we’re converted to these type of slots.
The Good Book
No, we’re not referring to the Bible, but to the golden book of this title, which takes the position of the scatter symbol. Amatic games tend to use scatters as a way of initiating their spin bonuses, and here is no different. All players will need to do is get three or more to get entry to the Bonus Spins, and what is more, they’ll play in any position.
Ten rounds come with the rewards, along with a range of credits. Even though the highest pay-in is quite frightening for those with only normal sized incomes, there are obvious benefits to ramping up your cash input.
The Eyes Have It
Seriously, they really do when it comes to this title; the sensual eyes of the belly dancer, her headdress beads decorating her forehead, are your way of getting the second biggest payout of the game.
The scatter is the most valuable of them all, but due to the inevitable volatility of the title, the likelihood of you landing five of a kind is spotty at best. Of course, you could argue the same for five of a kind of the dancer, but as she’s classed as a lesser tile, she should pop up more often than the book.
At the other end of the paytable there’s the A, K, J and Q, the low-end symbols that don’t offer much substance when you’re betting with the bare minimum. In fact the Q gives between 1 and 5 coins, which isn’t even going to cover a cost of coffee.
Pick up a Good Book on the Move
Golden Book can be played on the move, which is a feature that not all of Amatic’s slots champion; unlike some brands that roll them out across the board, this one takes a backseat, picking the better ones to be their mobile front runners.
What we will say about playing via your mobile is that, despite the reduction in screen size, Golden book transfers over quite well. Even the innovative layout is presented in a way where none of its impact is lost, which is hugely important because of how central the dynamic is to the entire feel of the game.
You don’t need to fall in love with this one to see it has potential, though granted a lot of it has been left untapped by Amatic. What could have been a trip into the exotic wilderness, has been relegated to unsophisticated fun – it’s exciting for a time, but the lack of depth hinders its progression to the big leagues.
