Book of Sam appears to be a sequel to a popular slot game called Electric Sam, which was developed by ELK Studios and released in 2014. The original game featuring Sam was well-received by players, and the sequel appears to be following in the same successful vein.
In the slot game Book of Sam, there are 5 reels and 3 rows that will spin. There are a total of 10 paylines on which winning combinations can occur. The game offers a high potential payout with a top jackpot of 10,000 times the player’s stake, but this also means that the volatility of the game is high. The return to player (RTP) percentage is 94%, which is lower than some other games. The game includes a wild/scatter symbol, three types of modifiers, and free spins with expanding symbols as special features.
Betting and Prizes
In the game Book of Sam, players can choose to spend between $0.20 and $100 to spin the reels. The game has a potential jackpot of 10,000x the original bet, which is higher than the typical payout of 5,000x in similar slot games. However, this potential for a high payout is accompanied by high volatility. Additionally, the return-to-player (RTP) rate for this and other recent ELK Studios slots is relatively low at 94%.
Book of Sam Game Features
The slot machine has three Troll characters that can create winning combinations, and when they do, you will receive a special feature called Electric Treats. These treats are connected to the characters Sam, Sandra, and Maggie and can provide respins with sticky Book symbols, respins with multipliers, or the removal of symbols to make room for new ones to fall into place.
In this slot machine game, the Book symbol is both a wild and scatter symbol. If you have three to five of these symbols, you will trigger a feature that gives you 8 free spins. During this feature, up to 3 regular symbols will be chosen to become expanding wilds, which means they will cover their entire reel and pay out even if they are not adjacent to each other. These expanding wilds will pay on all lines since they cover the entire reel. If the feature is triggered again, you will receive an additional expanding wild symbol, with a maximum of 5 possible.
Theme & Design
Sam and the trolls appear to be traveling back in time to Ancient Egypt, but they are actually in Las Vegas. The reels depict the trolls and symbols such as the Book of Bastet and various royal figures. The background of the reels showcases elements of Las Vegas.
If the return to player (RTP) rate was higher, the slot machine might be a good choice. However, given the low RTP of ELK Studios slots, I cannot recommend them at this time.
