Progressive Jackpot: No
Featuring a Greek mythology theme, this 5-reel, 20-payline slot from Novomatic is a visually appealing slot that could potentially deliver some impressive payouts. It is filled with such visual richness you would normally find in the world’s best museums. You can play the game on all desktop, mobile, and tablet devices.
Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You may start by clicking on the Lines +/- tabs to set the number of lines you want to play. You may then click on the Total Bet +/- tabs to set the amount you want to wager. If you want to bet the highest amount allowed, click on the Max Bet tab. To set the reels into motion, click on the Start tab at the rightmost end of the control panel. If you want the reels to spin automatically, click on the Auto tab to the left of the Start tab.
The game’s low-value symbols are represented by familiar playing card symbols. You will see the 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols in an elegant font, and in various colours. The high-value symbols are all theme-related. They are represented by the goddess of the night Nyx, the sun god Helios, and a wise owl. The symbol with the highest value is represented by the lady adventurer, and could possibly give you 200 times your stake.
The game’s Wild symbol is represented by the golden ring with a glowing gem. This symbol can substitute for any of the other base game symbols, including the Scatter symbol, to help you land winning combinations. The game also has a Scatter symbol, which is represented by the Book of Stars itself, a thick red book with zodiac symbols and a precious stone on its cover. This symbol pays out on its own and is also key to the game’s main bonus round. It also serves as a secondary Wild symbol, substituting for the standard base game symbols to land winning combinations.
The game’s main bonus round is the familiar Free Spins feature. This is activated when you land at least three of the Scatter symbols--or a combination of Scatter and Wild symbols--anywhere on the reels. You will be rewarded with ten free spins and taken to a different screen, where the Book of Stars will reveal a randomly chosen Expanding Symbol.
During the Free Spins round, whenever the chosen Expanding Symbol lands on the reels, it will expand to cover the entire reel on which it landed. It therefore has the potential to give you some highly impressive wins. If you manage to land three more Scatter symbols during any of your free spins, you will re-trigger the bonus round and get ten more free spins.
The game also has a special Gamble feature, which is activated every time you land a winning combination. You will be given the option of whether to collect your prize or gamble it. If you choose to gamble, you will be brought to a mini game where you will need to guess the colour of the playing card to be drawn. A correct guess multiplies your prize, but a wrong guess ends the mini game with you losing all of your winnings for that round.
