What Does Your Sign Say About You?
Because the game is based on astrology, that’s what you’ll find its reels are filled with, icons relative to the subject. Its interface is made up of five reels and three rows, so there’s a standard and familiar layout for gamers to play on. In the game, you’ll see symbols of what appear to be famous astrologers of years past, as well as a mechanical owl, and in addition, what would appear to be a female explorer, who seems to have gotten lost in such a game. Considering all the other icons look as though they belong to the theme in some way, she just looks like she’s strolled in off of the latest Indiana Jones set.
Accompanying the reels are 20 separate pay lines, all of which can be customised to suit your own personal wagering preferences. Furthermore, players also get the chance to alter the bet that they place per active line, which begins at its minimum of $0.01 and is able to be switched up to $4, thereby allowing a maximum overall wager of $80 to be played per round. However, if you activate the special feature of the ‘Extra Bet’, which we’ll discuss further shortly, your maximum wager will be increased to $100 per spin.
The Answer is In the Stars
The game doesn’t just focus on astrology, but because it’s called Book of Stars, it’s only necessary that it includes an icon of a book alongside. This acts as two symbols in one, therefore being the wild and the scatter. When acting as a wild, it will substitute for all other icons on the reels to form a win, while when it’s working as the scatter, it will trigger the game’s freespins round should three or more show up. This provides 10 freespins of the reels and incorporates a special expanding symbol alongside. This is chosen at random before the round begins. During the round, after the payout of regular icons, this one may expand to cover three positions on the reel.
Having the ‘Extra Bet’ feature activated may increase your wager placed, but it also integrates a new icon onto the reels. This is in the shape of a pearl-studded ring, which will appear on reels two and four only. This also works as a wild icon, but will substitute for not only the regular icons, but the scatter and expanding wild symbols as well. This makes it an ideal feature to have active, especially when playing at maximum wager level.
Furthermore, gamers can’t expect to find a Novomatic game without one of its regular gambling games included. Book of Stars is no different, with the choice of gambling appearing at the end of every winning combination formed. If you do go ahead with such, you’ll be required to guess the colour of a playing card before it’s turned over. A correct guess will double your winnings, while a wrong guess will see your winnings lost.
Do You Believe in Astrology?
Well, believing in astrology is one thing, but believing in this game is another. It initially seems like the theme is strong and structured, but when you see a random woman appearing on the reels and the complete lack of any innovative music, it tends to spoil whatever is being offered. Therefore, while this one isn’t specifically bad, it’s a little disheartening to play on the whole.
