Over the weekend, game developer Pragmatic Play launched its latest video slot, Book Of Fallen.
The brand new casino game is the latest addition to the John Hunter series and follows the adventurer as he returns to Egypt in search of riches and the Book Of Fallen, which is found in a tomb that “has been forgotten by time”.
Book Of Fallen uses a 3×5 layout with 10 paylines, and the game has an RTP of 96.50% with high variance, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over small regular ones.
In addition, the game requires a bet of between £0.10 and £1,000 per spin, and symbols here include John Hunter himself, a pharaoh, Anubis, Ankhs, the Book Of Fallen, and the traditional A, K, Q, J< and 10 symbols too.
The Book Of Fallen slot comes with numerous special features. For example, the Book Of Fallen acts as both a Scatter and Wild symbol, substituting for all symbols. Landing three or more of these symbols triggers the Free Spins mode, where you are awarded with 10 spins.
Before the feature starts, you can select a symbol to be the special expanding symbol. During the feature, the special symbol will expand to cover all three positions on a single reel after the payout of regular symbols. What’s more, landing three or more Book Of Fallen symbols awards 10 more spins, with no limit to the number of times this can be retriggered.
The game also has an ante bet, which costs 10x your bet for every spin. These spins are played like a free spins, requiring you to select a special expanding symbol. Finally, you can purchase the Free Spins mode for 100x your bet.
Julian Jarvis, the Chief Executive Officer at Pragmatic Play, said in a statement: “The brave explorer John Hunter has been a staple of our offering for some time now, and it’s now time to welcome another instalment to the iconic series with Book Of Fallen.
“Our customers expect thrilling narratives that feature equally innovative mechanics, and with titles that belong to the John Hunter collection, we are able to deliver both with ease.”
The Book Of Fallen follows the release of other John Hunter slots, including John Hunter And The Quest For Bermuda Riches, John Hunter And The Mayan Gods, John Hunter And The Book Of Tut, John Hunter And The Tomb Of The Scarab Queen, John Hunter And The Aztec Treasure, and Da Vinci’s Treasure.
The launch of the new slot comes after Pragmatic Play released live casino titles Sweet Bonanza Candyland and ONE Blackjack 2 – Indigo, and after the launch of slots Super X, Bounty Gold, Big Juan, and numerous others.
