Book of Sam Overview
ELK Studios has released a couple of games with the character Sam in the past. And now this series has received another addition, Book of Sam.
And I might hear a lot of players saying, again with a “Book of” slot game. Yes it is, but ELK Studios made sure the game comes with a lot more than just a basic “Book of” game. It packed this game with a ton of features, but also the very popular “Book of” free spins feature,
As a theme they have chosen Egypt, but the Vegas version of Egypt, which works pretty well and looks nice.
The game uses 5 reels that are each 3 symbols high and comes with 10 lines.
Besides standard card symbols you will also find 4 high paying symbols, where Sam is the highest paying one. And you will find books on all reels, which count as both scatter and wild symbols.
Book of Sam comes with a very nice maximum payout of 10.000 times bet.
Book of Sam Features
These features are available in both the base game and during free spins. The bonus is triggered when one of the three different characters is used in a winning combination. The three characters are the three highest paying symbols.
- Sam – Get a win of 2 or more Sam symbols and you will receive respins where all book symbols are held and 1 extra random book symbol is added. If you trigger this bonus during free spins, the added book symbol will become an expanding wild symbol.
- Sandra – Get a win with 2 or more Sandra symbols and you will receive respins with a random multiplier.
- Maggie – Get a win with 2 or more Maggie symbols and all low paying card symbols, cat symbols and Maggie symbols are removed from the reels. New symbols now fall on top, but only the remaining symbols appear. During free spins the special expanding symbols aren’t removed.
One feature can trigger another feature during Electric Treats.
Free Spins Feature
3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will award 8 free spins with 1, 2 or 3 randomly chosen special expanding symbols respectively.
These special symbols will expand to cover the entire reels and will pay, no matter where on the reels. Like a basic “Book of” slot game
3 or more scatter symbols will add 4 extra free spins and an extra randomly chosen expanding symbol.
You can get a maximum of 5 expanding symbols.
Electric Treats can also be activated during free spins.
Some online casinos will also offer the option to buy different special spins or bonuses. ELK Studios calles this X-iter. Just hit that button and activate what you want.
- Bonus Hunt – 2x your bet for a spin with double the chance of triggering the free spins feature
- Electric Treat – 10x your bet for a spin with a guaranteed Electric Treat
- Expanding Symbols – 50x your bet for a spin where all symbols (except Books) are special expanding symbols
- Bonus Game – 100x your bet for a spin that will guarantee the free spins feature
- Super Bonus – 500x your bet for a spin that will guarantee the free spins feature with all 9 symbols as special expanding symbols
ELK Studios really created a great new “Book of” slot game.
This game is so fully packed with features and extras and even the option to buy different types of bonuses that it never gets boring.
I also really enjoy the fact that the free spins can not only give more symbols, but also still have those Electric Treats available. Which can sometimes trigger more free spins much easier when you for instance get Sam, or increase winning a lot with Sandra.
I am really enjoying this game. And it also helps that the game looks great and comes with a good soundtrack.
Great job ELK Studios. I thought the “Book of” mechanism was done, but you managed to make it interesting again.
