Its developer’s portfolio has ten other video slots, including the relatable Mayan Eagle (July 2020).
Book of Atem’s rival games include Book of Oziris (July 2019) from GameArt, Book of Gods (July 2019) from GameArt, and Book of Gold: Classic (May 2019) from Playson. Four symbols (pharaoh Atem, falcon, cobra, and lotus flower) require two, three, four, or five winning combinations. Six symbols (sacred book, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Book of Atem Game Characteristics
Book of Atem has a translucent partly framed 5X3 grid, which is set in a golden Egyptian palace adorned with palm trees. The cyan grids are divided up by thin, double-edged, and turquoise-encased golden spears. There are ten left-to-right fixed paylines, ten symbols, 28 total bets, a repopulating designated symbol during the free games, no side game, and regularly pays from $0.05 to $50000.00.
One special symbol: the substituting wild-and-scatter is a predominantly golden sacred book whose gem-encased cover is embossed with snakes. Nine ordinary symbols: a golden-and-blue bust of a clean shaven pharaoh Atem; an falcon; a cobra; a pink lotus flower; red-and-golden A; teal-and-golden K; green-and-golden Q; pink-and-golden J; and orange-and-golden 10.
Book of Atem bet sizes: $0.10 (minimum), $0.20, $0.30, $0.40, $0.50, $0.60, $0.80, $1.00, $1.50, $2.00, $2.50, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $6.00, $7.50, $8.00, $10.00, $12.50, $15.00, $20.00, $25.00, $30.00, $40.00, $50.00, $60.00, $80.00, and $100.00 (maximum).
Example: the $100.00 bet has these Book of Atem payouts. Two, three, four, and five: pharaoh Atem pays $100.00, $750.00, $10000.00, and $50000.00; falcon pays $50.00, $400.00, $4000.00, and $20000.00; and cobra, or lotus flower pays $50.00, $250.00, $1000.00, and $7500.00. Three, four, and five: sacred book pays $200.00, $2000.00, and $20000.00; A, or K pays $100.00, $400.00, and $1500.00; and Q, or J, or 10 pays $50.00, $250.00, and $750.00.
Three, or four, or five sacred books offer ten free games. Initially, the landed books merge into one book—has blank left pages and a symbol on each right page—that then flips itself before selecting (excluding the sacred book) a symbol at random.
Winning symbols must be adjacent in the regular game; on the contrary, the designated symbol can form scattered winning combinations during the free games, wherein it then wholly repopulates the involved reels. Book of Atem’s non-progressive jackpot is X5000, which (5000X100) is $500000.00—however, the paytable claims its maximum payout is $540000.00.
Book of Atem has good software. Players swipe up and down to set the bet. There is on/off quickspin. The autospins are adjusted using a slider whose choices are 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, and 100 rounds. Unfortunately, this IP address-sensitive game excludes players from many regions.
Ambient background: ancient Egyptian music. Sound effects: chinking and ringing. Its 3D graphics are not animated; however, there are gushing coins during big win presentation and visual effects like glistening and glittering.
