Book of Raider Online Slot by Microgaming and GONG Gaming Technologies gets backs to thematic basics with a simple visual offering and a powerful set of features. I joined an intrepid adventure on a treasure finding quest as he appeared on the reels alongside Egyptian deities and a mystical book. Lucrative jackpots helped me spin my way to winnings and the game’s bonus features include free spins and wilds.
The bonus features pack in a rewarding spread of free spins, expanding symbols and jackpots that kept the winnings flowing in.
All I had to do to trigger this feature was wait, as it activated randomly throughout the base game The reels were replaced by a grid of colourful gems and I rolled a pair of dice that caused a highlighted square to move around the game area. When I rolled a crown symbol I was awarded a jackpot that matched the colour of the gem I landed on. Landing on a blue, red, green, or gold gem awarded me a corresponding jackpot worth 10x, 100x, 1000x, or 10 000x my stake, respectively.
Turning this feature on doubled my bet amount and also increased my chances of triggering the Royal League jackpot by 10x.
A symbol would occasionally land with a special token attached to it and these were collected in an indicator on the left side of the reels. I eventually reached 100 tokens and the game presented me with 3 crowns. I had to choose one of the crowns and was subsequently awarded 8, 12, or 16 Golden Spins. These special paid spins doubled my chances of triggering the Royal League jackpot game.
When I got 3 book scatters to land, I was awarded 10 free spins and a pay symbol was chosen to be the special expanding symbol for the duration of the feature. Whenever this symbol appeared it would expand to cover the whole reel it was on. I also found that landing 3 scatters retriggered the bonus round, generating an extra 10 free spins.
Book of Raider gets the basics right and stops right there. This game is pretty unremarkable in its visual execution. The symbols are bright and colourful, but they are similar to those that you might find in any other Egyptian-themed slot and the protagonist is basically a carbon copy of Play’n GO’s rich Wilde, albeit with a well-placed scar and unnervingly pouty lips.
As far as the features go, I was happy to encounter the Royal League jackpot again as it spiced up the base game and using the Boost Mode made sure I could encounter it every few spins and take another shot at the game’s top prize of $250 000. While unremarkable in places, this title’s ability to produce a flurry of wins is undeniable and it captures the charm of the originators of this slot genre. With any hope, GONG Gaming will run with this concept and develop more imaginative vehicles for it as time passes.
