Slot developers like using Egyptian mythology when it comes to releasing games that use the popular “Book Of” format.
Mascot Gaming decided to buck that trend and come out with “The Book Of Amaterasu” slot game that has a Japanese theme.
The Japanese consider Amaterasu as a sun goddess and she is the main character in this game.
The developers have done a good job with the background that showcases Japanese pagodas and lotus flowers. Combined with a calming soundtrack, players are given the chance to relax and enjoy this game.
Players are presented with a standard grid of five reels and three rows along with 10 paylines to work with. The max cash jackpot for this game is fixed at $20,000 which should be tempting to a lot of players.
What we did not find impressive about this slot is the limited betting range. Players start at $0.20 which is great but the maximum bet is limited to just $20. This makes this game suitable for low stakes players and those with limited bankrolls. However, medium and high stakes players will not find this slot very appealing.
The game’s symbols are a nice mix. The card royals are the low-value symbols while the premium symbols include cats, coins, flowers, masks and Amaterasu. There is also the Book symbol, which acts as both Wild and Scatter symbol.
The game does have a set of interesting special features. The main one is the Book symbol. As a wild, it should make things easier for players who want to win. Players will get free spins when they score 3 or more scatters. Ten free spins are the minimum while the maximum is twenty spins. Players will also be keen on getting one random symbol as it will trigger a Special Expanding feature that will take over the entire reel when it lands.
For players that don’t want to wait around, they can make use of the Risk’N’Buy Feature. After players place a spin, they can immediately get a Free Spin round if they are willing to pay for it, either with their current winnings or a bet. This game has an RTP of 95 percent.
Overall, Book Of Amaterasu offers you an amusing experience with the chance to win a pretty big jackpot. Those who want something different from the usual Book Of games slots, should give this game a try.
