Book of Atem WowPot online slot by Microgaming and All41 Studios is the second title in the WowPot series and progressive jackpot-enhanced version of All41’s title released earlier in 2020. A balcony poolside view of an ancient city greets you as a noble pharaoh and exotic Egyptian wildlife spin across the reels. The gameplay is fairly simple with free spins, expanding symbols, and a progressive jackpot wheel.
If you land 3, 4, or 5 wild scatters on the reels, you will activate free spins and immediately receive 10 spins. The Book of Atem will choose a symbol at random to become an expanding symbol that can cover an entire reel while the feature is active, giving you the chance at huge wins if a high-value symbol is selected.
Getting to the progressive jackpot is a matter of pure chance as it is randomly triggered when Book symbols appear on the reels. A jackpot wheel spins, landing on different colour-coded segments that correspond to one of four guaranteed jackpot prizes. The Mini jackpot starts at $10, the minor jackpot starts at $100, the Major jackpot starts at $50 000, and the WowPot jackpot starts at $2,000 000.
Book of Atem slot adds a thrilling new level of play to existing title with an infusion of godly jackpot potential. Fans of the original Book of Atem will be glad to revisit the intricately constructed aesthetic and straight forward gameplay. The base game doesn’t offer any surprises, while free spins picks up the pace with expanding symbols that create a shortcut to high-value symbol combinations.
The only glaring complaint that one might have is the low RTP which is well below average, but its effect isn’t too evident as scatters seem to land fairly frequently, giving you more than just a few chances at accessing the bonus game.
Getting to the main attraction, the WowPot does present a challenge as it is completely random, but once you do get the jackpot wheel spinning, your chances of walking away a millionaire are within your grasp. The WowPot progressive jackpot makes for a good pairing with this title which initially felt like it could do with an extra feature or two.
