Book of Magic
Book of Magic Slot Machine
Like many EGT slots there are some good reasons to play despite this game being another that is unlikely to win any awards for design. The central character in this 5 reel video slot is a grey bearded wizard, and the book which he presumably uses to keep his spells. The reasons to play include a 10,000 coin top prize from regular play, a 3x multiplier for all wins during the free spins bonus round – and the usual EGT progressive jackpot pools (4 of them) which are triggered at random. This is a solid, rather than an overly attractive slot, and will appeal to those who enjoy the fundamentals of slot gaming without too many frills.
Other than some foliage in the top corners, there is no background to speak of – meaning that all the design is focused on the symbols themselves. These are nicely drawn, with some detailed shading. While individually the graphics look reasonably up to date, there is something about the simplicity of the game (and plain background) which gives EGT slots an overall retro feeling. You’ll find a female wizard, green and purple jewels, book and chest on the reels – in addition to playing card symbols. There is no backing track or ambient sound effects for this game. When you spin the reels they stop with a double clicking sound, and wins are met with short blasts of sound which are tied in with the theme. There are animations within the symbols, for example the chest opens and sparkles and the book opens too.
