Slot Review: Book of Horus
Book of Horus in the test – another adventurer on a book quest
Book of Horus belongs to the adventurer and book slots that are now available in large numbers. The most popular example of this type of slot machine is Book of Dead. One interesting detail stands out immediately: Book of Horus has a female adventurer at its centre. This is a nice change from all the male adventurers looking for treasure in the world of slot machines. We did an extensive field test to be able to answer all questions first hand.
The facts about the slot machine Book of Horus
Book of Horus fits in well visually with the typical adventurer slots. There are five reels and ten paylines. The player has the option of setting the number of paylines himself. The stake can be set between ten cents and 50$. This should be a sufficient range for most players. The extreme high rollers also like to play with three-digit amounts, but for 99.9 percent of all players, a maximum stake of 50$ is sufficient. The maximum win is 25,000 coins. This is a very respectable sum, regardless of how high the bet is set. On the reels you will find books, scarabs, pharaoh masks and also some low-paying card symbols. Even though the symbols are individually drawn, there is no fundamental visual difference to other adventurer slot machines. But the Egyptian symbols are respectable and the soundtrack is also quite good.
The book is the wild and scatter symbol. The other symbols are interesting mainly because of the values. All values are clearly listed on the paytable, which can be called up with one click in Book of Horus. The paylines are evaluated from left to right and added up to the round win. Here, too, Book of Horus is no different from other adventurer slots. A nice detail, however, is that the adventurer and the pharaoh mask already bring a small win with two identical symbols. Otherwise, at least three identical symbols on a payline are required to clear a win. The payout rate of 95.52 percent is quite low compared to many other slot machines on the market. The value is okay, but anything but sensational. Most slots now have a payout ratio of over 96 percent. For some top slots, the payout rate is even over 97 percent.
The slot offers these special features
Except for the absolute top wins, customers can use a risk game after a successful round. In Book of Horus, card risk and risk ladder are offered as alternatives. Every experienced gambling fan knows these two risk games. But beginners can also easily master these two games. In card risk, it is only a matter of selecting a card colour. Then a card is drawn from the virtual deck. If the player guesses correctly, the winnings are doubled. A wrong tip leads to a loss. In Book of Horus, it is possible to double the winnings several times with the card risk. But there is always the risk that the complete round win is cancelled with a wrong tip. The risk ladder looks a bit more complicated at first glance, but actually works quite similarly to the card risk. The player has to click and hope that the clicks lead to it going up the ladder. However, it is always possible to fall down the ladder. At least it is not always possible to lose the entire round win, but only a part of it with a wrong click.
Win free spins with the scatter symbol
The only real special feature are the free spins. If the book appears at least three times as a scatter symbol, the free spins are activated. Alternatively, it is also possible to win the free spins at random if there are already two scatter symbols on the field and Horus directs his legendary laser beam onto the field, activating a third scatter symbol. In any case, the player must first select three pyramids. In the process, it is decided at random whether the player gets 8, 10 or 12 free spins. In the free spins, an expanding symbol is randomly determined by the laser beam of Horus. The free spins are played with the previously set bet. It is possible to win more free spins with three scatter symbols. In this case, however, no pyramids are then shown. The player wins the same number of free spins as on the first attempt. Theoretically, it is possible to get long free spins series. As a rule, however, the free spins lead to the most lucrative situations in the game even without an extension.
Book of Horus for Mobile
Book of Horus is also available as a mobile variant. It is not necessary to install a casino app to use it, because the game runs in the browser. Winstudios uses the modern HTML 5 technology, so that the game works without any problems on the most common devices, from the iPhone and iPad to Android mobile phones and Android tablets. We tried out various devices in our practical test and found no problems. The operation changes somewhat compared to the desktop computer, but the game principle and the game mechanics remain the same. Book of Horus is suitable for mobile casino visitors without any restrictions.
Book of Horus is a good adventurer slot that stands out especially because of the main character. The free spins feature is attractive and with a bit of luck also very lucrative. But compared to the absolute top games, the entertainment value is a bit lower. The mediocre payout rate doesn’t necessarily inspire enthusiasm either. Nevertheless, we had a lot of fun with this slot during the test, also because the soundtrack is well done. One or two more features certainly couldn’t hurt. At least there are the popular risk games.
