Casino Slot Game: Book Of Atem
The Nile Delta and the ancient Valley of the Kings hold many secrets. While some of these still lie undiscovered, many are recorded in priceless manuscripts. The Book of Atem is one precious source of information about the Ancient Egyptian Pharoahs and their magical and exotic world. Using this as their inspiration, All41 Studios have created ‘The Book of Atem’ a brilliant, state-of-the-art online pokie fantasy game which not only captures the atmosphere of a land where soft desert breezes blow, it also recreates an environment in which you can always sense the very real possibility of untold riches. But would you dare to enter the pharaoh's kingdom to search for the treasure promised in the Book of Atem?
The world of the Book of Atem
Using all the skills of modern computer graphics, the designers of this casino online slot have produced a rich game environment which reveals all the luxury of a pharaoh's palace. There’s a lush oasis with green palms, imposing temples, and palace buildings with tiled courtyards and sparkling pools of tranquil water containing golden carp. This backdrop changes its character throughout the game, reflecting the influence of the desert sun: sometimes it’s a brilliant, golden yellow, sometimes a rich brown, and at night it’s a cool shade of midnight blue. But there’s opulence everywhere, and not for one moment could you forget you are entering a royal palace where there could be gold around every corner.
For the Egyptians, Atem was a god known as the ‘finisher of the world’. All things were created from his flesh, including other gods, and at the end of the world, Atem would return everything he had made to a watery chaos. Unlike some more intense Egyptian-themed games, the Book of Atem doesn’t major on deep caves and torch-lit caverns, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist!
Book of Atem slot game symbols
Like many other online casino slots, the Book of Atem’s lowest paying symbols are a suite of card royals – A, K, Q, J, plus the 10 card – which are each decorated with small lotus blossoms. Then there are delicate pink coloured lotus blooms, severe and threatening images of striking cobras, and fierce lanner falcons bred for hunting game in the desert. At the top of this hierarchy of Egyptian symbols is the iconic Pharoah himself – the most valuable symbol – and of course, an illustration of the golden Book of Atem, studded with jewels.
Expanding symbols and other amazing game features
The magic book itself acts both as a Scatter symbol and also as a game Wild symbol. If you are lucky and can manage to land three, four, or even five scatters, then you will qualify for 10 Free Spins. Once that happens, one of the other game symbols will be chosen at random to become an expanding symbol during your free spins. And whenever your special expanding symbol then appears on a reel, it will cover the entire reel. And unlike many gameplay combinations, your expanding symbol winning options don’t have to begin from the left-most reel, and neither do they have to lie on slot reels which are next to each other. Don’t forget also that your Free Spins feature can be retriggered, and that besides acting as a scatter, the mighty book can also be used as a wild symbol to act as other paying symbols and help you create even more winning combinations.
Book of Atem game specifications
Surely destined to become a pokies casino favourite, the Book of Atem is a 5 x 3 reel video slot game which features 10 paylines. This is a high volatility game, which means on average players can expect higher payouts than with many other games, though wins may occur a little less frequently. The game’s RTP (return to player) percentage is quoted as 96.45 %, which is fairly generous for this type of game.
