Book of Darkness Slot (Betsoft)

Book of Darkness Slot (Betsoft)With this latest title from Betsoft, you are promised both power and riches. The slot goes by the name Book of Darkness, and with it, you gain access to the fantasy world. Here, you will pick the fighter before heading for the unknown adventure.

I was particularly attracted by the slot’s fun symbols, and after trying it a couple of times, here is my review:

Game Set-Up

Book of Darkness uses the common 5x3 reels design, with only 10 active lines.

The developer has added several features to it, and these include wild/scatter, free spins, and the Clash for Power bonus.

Betting and Prizes

To place a bet, you need to select the wager from the list that is provided at the bottom area.

Betting values range at between $0.10 and $40 per spin, and the amount that you select will go into covering the entire 10 lines.

Book of Darkness doesn’t offer very high payouts and the maximum that you can get is 640x the stake ($25,600 at the maximum).

I’m also concerned with the slot’s high volatility that does not seem to work well with its low rewards.

However, the developer has managed to give it an incredible RTP of 96.78%.

Book of Darkness Slot Features

The Book of Darkness icon is what the slot uses as the wild. As a wild, it can work as a replacement symbol for the regular icons.

Also, the same icon serves as a scatter, and its presence on the reels will bring along some free spins or cash prizes.  However, you need several for this to happen.

Then there is the Clash for Power, and this feature will require a combo of 1-2 appearing on the reels, but within a straight line.

When this happens, a Clash will be triggered, and this way, you will be able to pick a fighter: either a Dark Wizard or a Huntress.

If your hero wins the Clash for Power, you will be rewarded with up to 10 free spins. Huntress will add a multiplier of up to 5x, while Dark Wizard will bring along 10 additional rounds (making them 20 total), plus some extra expanding symbols.

Theme & Design

Book of Darkness offers a fantasy-themed design. This way, you can expect to work alongside warriors and mages. Other icons are magic rings, crystals, potions, and the Book.

The low-value symbols are represented by Royals.

Conclusion

I find Book of Darkness to be a very unusual slot game, and especially its high volatility that is accompanied by extremely low top jackpots. This combo doesn’t blend, and the low jackpot is not a motivator.

The slot is interesting and fun to play, but it is more suitable for casual players.
