Book of Jones: Slot Overview

If the online slot version of Ancient Egypt hasn't been plundered enough over the years already, here is another chance to do so from software provider Stakelogic. Titled Book of Jones, it is indeed another 'book of' slot with expanding pay-anywhere symbols in its free spins round. The title, too, is it a playful reference to Indiana Jones since a lot of these slots feature adventurous characters sporting Fedoras? One can only speculate without being a mind reader, but the chances feel good. Either way, Book of Jones possesses a fairly usual mix of 'book of' gaming with a classical 'book of' presentation, along with an interesting feature development.

On the topic of presentation, Book of Jones whisks willing participants to an Ancient Egyptian-inspired location dotted with statues and hieroglyphs and all that sort of stuff. Much like a lot of the game in general, Book of Jones doesn't bring much that's new visually or sonically. Yet it's not a slot which will likely disappoint enthusiasts of this form with poor graphics and sound either. In short, the first impression was neither great nor terrible, but somewhat lukewarm ambivalence. That's about it. On we go.

Next is picking a bet of 10 p/c to $/€50 and pondering the use of the Super Stake, which is like a boost bet feature. When the Superstake is switched on, the stake is doubled to have additional scatter symbols placed on the reels to make free spins more likely to be awarded. In either case, the RTP appears to be the same at 96.02%, while volatility is high. Sticking with a classic set-up, Book of Jones has 5 reels, 3 rows of symbols and 10 fixed paylines for evaluating wins along.

It's also got nine regular paying symbols. The lower value group are 10 to A card ranks paying out when hitting 3 to 5-of-a-kinds, while the 4 high pays are representations of two Ancient Egyptian gods, a pharaoh, and an explorer, awarding a payout when landing 2 to 5 OAK. When a 5-matching symbol win hits, the low pays award 10 to 15 times the bet, increasing to 75 to 500 times the bet for the premium symbols.

Book of Jones: Slot Features

True to form, Book of Jones possesses a book symbol which is both wild and scatter. When acting as a wild, the book can substitute for any non-expanded pay symbol. When acting as a scatter, landing 3, 4, or 5 books awards 10 free spins plus a payout of 10, 100, or 500 times the bet, respectively. Hitting 2 books pays 1x the bet.

Free Spins

The free spins round begins by flipping through the pages of a book to randomly be awarded an expanding symbol. Any of the regular pay symbols may be chosen to be the expanding symbol. During free spins, after any normal win evaluations have been made, if the expanding symbols in view can create a win, they expand to cover all positions on their respective reels. Expanded symbols pay all paylines from any position. By landing at least 3 book symbols or Golden Wild Book symbols during the feature, 10 additional free spins are awarded.

Golden Wild Book Symbols

Now we come to Book of Jones' twist. This is the Golden Wild Book symbol which can land on any reel only in free spins. When a Golden Wild Book symbol hits, its reel becomes a Fixed Symbol Reel. If doing so would create a win, a Fixed Symbol Reel will transform into the expanded symbol. For instance, if the A is the expander and it lands on reels 1 and 2, and reel 3 is the Fixed Symbol Reel, reel 3 will transform into an expanded A symbol.

Buy Bonus

By clicking on the bonus buy button, players are able to buy entry to the free spins round for 100x the bet.

Book of Jones: Slot Verdict

Here's a bit of movie trivia you may or may not have already known. Before Raiders of the Lost Ark hit the big screen to exhilarate moviegoers, George Lucas wanted to call the leading character Indiana Smith, but was persuaded otherwise, encouraged by Steven Spielberg who wasn't thrilled by the name. Indiana Smith? It just doesn't sound as fittingly American as Indiana Jones. One more tidbit of internet lore, George Lucas' dog Indiana was the inspiration not only for Indiana Jones but for Han Solo's Wookie pal Chewbacca.

And another thing, if we hadn't got movies starring an adventurer called Indiana Jones, we might well be reviewing a game right now called Book of Smith instead. As far as the review went, Book of Jones was okay. Nothing special, nothing terrible. It looks the part, plays the part – like a lot of 'book' releases which preceded it. This is probably Book of Jones' biggest issue. It doesn't really bring anything outrageously new to the table. The exception is the Golden Wild Book scatter which can transform a regular reel into a Fixed Symbol Reel. Not a bad idea and a curiosity for aficionados to tick off. Though it feels like we may have seen something like this in the past? In saying that, the thought of having a bunch of reels transformed into Fixed Symbol Reels is a heady one. Imagine this with the explorer or one of the other high-paying symbols in the expanding role. Hard to say if the inclusion of Fixed Symbol Reels has had any impact on the game's max win, though, since the figure was not provided, though 5,000x full-screen wins are technically possible.

To conclude, and probably repeat what's already been alluded to, Book of Jones is a decent book of' slot that didn't exactly blow socks off but wasn't a drag to play either. Most of what it does can be found in numerous other places, and while the Fixed Symbol Reels idea has merit, without it Book of Jones would have been pretty generic.

Fair

For the most part, Book of Jones offers bog standard ‘book of’ gaming while packing a potentially exciting addition.
