Designed in an Ancient Egypt style, this game is placed on a typical 3×5 grid and has 10 winning combinations. As for symbols, they are not numerous here that makes them easy to remember. The Book symbol is a main figure of this slot machine and serves as Wild and Scatter at the same time. Its characteristics are listed below:
- it substitutes for any symbol (excluding expanded symbol combinations);
- it pays at any place on the reel;
- wins get multiplied by the total bet;
- its wins are added up to the payline wins.
Three or more Book symbols on the reel activate ten free spins, and there is also an option of their retriggering.
Besides, there are 5 card figures representing lower paying symbols and 4 higher paying symbols that are a lotus, a snake, a hawk and a powerful pharaoh.
Another particular thing in the Book of Atem is an Expanding Symbol feature. At the start of free spins one symbol is chosen randomly in order to be expanded and cover the reel.
On the whole, this Microgaming product makes a good impression of an entertaining and nice-looking slot machine. The RTP is 96.45%, but the volatility is high. The total jackpot reaches $125 000, and we consider it as a game with big prizes.
