Head back to the colourful Egyptian sand dunes where the gods will welcome you with open arms in this Book of Immortals slot.
Book of Immortals mobile slot is a 5 reels 3-row online game with 10 paylines, mystery symbols, wilds that act as scatters and free spins with expanding scatter pays.
First of all, we should mention that this has a beautiful Ancient Egyptian theme. You still get golden sand dunes and temples, but each of the gods have a slick modern look that makes it stand out from the usual crowd.
Novomatic made the Book of Ra slot online and since then there’s been a whole load of copies, mostly by Novomatic themselves.
The idea is simple. You get 5 reels with 10 paylines. A 5 of a kind win is actually worth something and that the whole point of this game.
However, the best way to get those 5 of a kind wins is by getting to the bonus games where you’ll find expanding scatter symbols. That and the scarab symbols which gives you hoards of mystery symbols from time to time.
During the Book of Immortals free spins, a special reel will spin before each spin and one symbol will be chosen. That symbol, if found on the reels will expand and pay like a scatter.
So unlike the Play’n GO Book of Dead slot when only one symbol is chosen before each free spin, here any symbol could be picked at any point – low, high paying, medium value.
However, it almost makes it less exciting because you don’t know which symbol is going to expand, and mostly it’s rarely the high paying ones. It’s probably true of the others, but here it feels more obvious.
The maximum bet isn’t very high, only 10 a spin, but as this is a volatile game, probably best to start with some low bets… and then move on to other examples of this kind of real money game.

Scarab Swap: During any spin, a swarm of scarabs can fly across the five reels and land on up to 10 symbols. These symbols will then turn into one symbol and create a potentially bigger win - like mystery symbols.
Free Spins, Scatters and Wilds: The Book of Immortals is both the wild symbol and the scatter symbol.
So not only can it replace any other symbol to create a win, but it can also trigger 10 free spins when you get 3 or more on screen.
During the free spins, you have a top reel which spins with symbols. Whichever symbol it lands on, that symbol will then pay as an expanding scatter.
That means that it will expand to cover the reel and pay regardless of whether it's on one of the 10 paylines.
Rather than create another copy of the Book of Ra Deluxe casino game, iSoftbet have tried to give this a new twist by adding mystery symbols and changing the expanding scatter symbols on every spin.
And mostly it works. We like the mystery symbols, they add a nice touch to the base game.
Changing each symbol during the scatter spins adds a touch of frustration, however, as you never quite know what you are looking for in a spin.
All in all, the Book of Immortals slot on mobile is a fun Ancient Egyptian casino game that has some interesting twists and turns and certainly worth taking a couple of spins.
