Book of Sheba Slot (iSoftBet)
Book of Sheba is the latest addition to iSoftBet’s list of slots. This new release seems to be inspired by their previous game, titled Book of Ra, which borrows from the same genre.
The Book genre is increasingly becoming popular, and many developers are coming on board with different versions of games. We have seen all manner of creations from cloning the original game, to building smaller or larger versions.
I had the opportunity to try out this new slot from iSoftBet, please read on to see if it fits the bill!
Book of Sheba is built on 5 reels with a total of 10 pay lines. The slot game does not seem to differ much from others in this category, and for its maximum payout, you can get as much as 5,000x the stake.
It’s a highly volatile game, and among its unique features is the Golden Book feature that appears during free spins. Other features present include the usual wilds and the scatter.
Betting and Prizes
To place a wager, I only needed $0.10 per spin. However, if you are a high roller, the slot allows bets of up to $10 per round. You can also place an ultra-bet, where you spend 50x the stake.
Book of Sheba offers a top payout of 5,000x the stake, which is quite decent for the Book of Ra genre. However, the great payout comes with significant risk, given that the slot is quite volatile.
For its RTP iSoftBet has provided a 96%, which is within the average that you get from most modern slots. The Ultra Bet will receive a much higher RTP of 96.50%.
Book of Sheba Slot Features
The features are largely the same that you get from other Book-style games, safe for the free spins mode.
For the base game, you get the symbols of wilds and scatters. These come in handy when you want to form winning combinations. If you get them to appear at least three times, you can use them as the scatter symbols.
With the scatter symbols, the slot can pay as much as 200x the stake, in addition to rewarding you with free spins (up to 10 rounds).
The only unique feature on this slot is the Golden Book symbols, and these are some form of extra wilds. This is a good innovation that is not present on other slots in this genre.
Theme & Design
The slot is obviously an Egyptian themed game, and iSoftBet has done quite well, especially with the introduction of the Golden Book feature.
The slot has modern graphics, but there are the usual Royals to represent the low-value symbols. High-value icons include the Queen, Broach, Lion, and Mask.
Book of Sheba is quite interesting, and if you love the Book genre, then you will love this slot.
The developer has gone an extra mile to introduce a great innovation, the extra Gold Mask wild), and I particularly love the Ultra-Bet option on the game.
However, before you play for real money, prepare yourself well as the game is high in volatility.
