This Books and Bulls slot might have a confused theme, but at least the maths are very, very good.
We know why Gameomat called this the Book and Bull mobile slot. Mostly because it’s inspired by the Book of Ra slot by Novomatic, but they decided to add a Spanish theme.
However, if you weren’t as obsessive about slot games as we are, all you’ll see is is a matador and a flamingo dancer being really interested in… Reading?
At least now you can be one of those slots know it alls that get why this was named this way.
This has 10 paylines and a wild symbol that keeps the base game ticking, though without the big wins of the Book of Ra Deluxe 6.
But when you find the scatter book you get the same kind of free spins – one symbol is picked at random, and will now expand to cover the whole reel.
It also pays like a scatter, so it pays to get mid range symbols rather than the highest paying ones.
However, what makes this Book and Bulls slot special is the second free spin bonuses games.
If you trigger the free spins using the Bull instead of the Book, you’ll get 10 free spins but this time, all wilds that show up stay sticky for the whole free spin round.
A little like the EmotiCoins slot by Microgaming.
It’s always a good feature that we love when we see it, and gives an extra dimension to a simple Gameomat slot.
That’s mostly due to the theme and the sounds that are fairly generic at best.
We would also have loved to see more Books free spins, as that’s where the big wins lie, especially if you get expanding wild symbols.
Still, you can’t deny that good wins are abundant, and easier to get even than in the Book of Ra Deluxe slot – just not always as impressive.

Wilds: The Matador is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on screen to create a winning payline. It does not replace the two scatters.
The Books Free Spins: If you find three book scatter symbols anywhere on screen, you'll trigger 10 free spins.
One other random symbol will be picked to become an expanding scatter.
That simply means that when that symbol shows up on screen, it will expand to cover the whole reel, and pay regardless of whether its on a payline or not.
The Bulls Free Spins: Find three Bull symbols anywhere on screen and you'll also trigger 10 free spins.
Except this time any wilds that show up will stay sticky on screen till the end of the round. Usually you get at least 3 or 4 show up, which can really help.
Gamble Feature: You can choose to gamble any win in one of two ways.
Either choose whether the card will be a red or black suit, or gamble to go up a ladder.
Either way, the result is the same; sometimes you double your win, other times you lose it all.
You can choose to only gamble half your win though, if you want.
This Book and Bulls slot game tries to do something a little different by giving you the same mechanics as one of your favourites (ie. Book of Ra) and add one extra free spin feature.
Overall that works, but you can't help but wish that they had made something a little more different, or made the sounds and theme more impressive.
However, if you like Novomatic machines, you'll find this Book and Bulls game to tick all the right boxes.
And if you really like cheap copies of the original Egyptian slot, we'd also recommend Magic Mirror Deluxe by Merkur gaming.
