Anyone looking for a slot machine game that is able to take on a more adventurous feel will think they have come to the right place. Take an epic journey to the stars with the Book Of Stars slot by Novomatic.
This space themed game with five reels and three rows is ideal for someone looking for something a little more on the epic side when it comes to their retro games. In typical Novomatic style the interface and design is rather simple, but it still has a few tricks up its sleeve to keep you happy throughout the entire journey to the stars.
While Novomatic games normally have quite plain backgrounds, this one has quite a lot going on. Perhaps it is something that we should expect from a slot aiming to be a big adventure in the depths of space. In the background we can see bright blue distant galaxies, which stand out against the blackness of empty starless space. At the top of the screen, we can see a variety of flashing lights and explosions, possibly depicting the beginnings of a new planet.
The symbols also give a knowing nod towards the idea of space exploration. Many of the symbols depict Greek astronomers who gazed up to the stars and were able to discover whole new worlds.
The controls for this game are rather simple, so it will not take you long at all for you to take charge of your own spaceship as you blast off to the stars. At the bottom of the screen you can select the number of paylines that you wish to bet on along with how many coins you wish to wager.
You can also select an autoplay option whenever you think that the ship is safe to fly on autopilot for a little while and spin the reels on its own. Finally there is a gamble button, which plays a part in the special features of the game.
The symbols naturally play a very big part in the bonus features that are available in this game. For example, getting the right selection of symbols at the same time and you could see yourself in possession of some bountiful free spins.
All you need is to get three of the scatter symbols, which are represented by a book. When this happens, you will be given 10 free spins. All you need is a few wilds to fall exactly where you need them to and you could be in with a chance of getting some impressive combo wins.
Starting to think that there is nothing risky or exciting about playing this game? Then you should think again. This game gives you the option to make yourself the hero of this epic space adventure. All you need is the nerve to take a big risk on your winnings.
Whenever you have a winning bet, you will be given the option to gamble with it. If you accept the challenge, you will be presented with a deck of cards. Simply guess what the colour of the card will be when one is drawn from the deck at random. Guess correctly and you will be blasting off with a 2x multiplier. If you have the nerve of a space captain, you can have another guess and even win a 5x multiplier. But if you guess wrong at any point, then those multipliers will be gone. Not only that, but your winnings on the last spin will have also disappeared into the vast emptiness of space. Many people will see this as a risk that is not worth taking. Then again, if you guess correctly twice in a row, then you could be heading back to planet Earth from your adventure with a massive collection of winnings under your arm.
When it comes to epic slots, this has to be up there as one of the best. While it may seem a little basic and retro at first, it is still a thoroughly enjoyable and addictive game to play. You can also give your adventure a shot of adrenalin with the gamble feature as well, so there is no risk that you will get bored.
