Players are invited to join Lara Jones in her adventures at an ancient Mayan temple deep within the jungle as Spearhead Studios releases a newly remastered version of its Book of Souls slot with Book of Souls Remastered.
Book of Souls Remastered is a 5×3, 10-payline video slot which incorporates several improvements from its predecessor, such as a more volatile math model, new gamble and buy feature options and new graphics.

The reels have 11 symbols including four high-paying, five low-paying, snake wild and a scatter wild.
The snake wild is a wild symbol which does not appear on the reels. It only appears as an overlay symbol during an occasional, random snake spin.
Meanwhile, the Book of Souls symbol is the scatter and acts as a wild. This can land on any of the reels in the base game and in free spins – substituting for any symbol. Three or more scatter wilds landing anywhere on the panel will award 10 free spins with an expanding special symbol.
The title includes features such as snake spins which drop random wilds onto the reels and a special expanding symbol during the free spin mode, as well as a ladder and card gamble and a buy the bonus option.
The snake spin feature depicts a series of animated snakes on the screen as soon as the spin begins. When the result is displayed, between three and ten of the initial symbols will have been replaced by the snake wild – wins are then evaluated.
Moreover, before the free spins bonus starts, one of the four high-paying or five low-paying symbols will be randomly selected to be the special symbol. Next, the reels spin as normal – with the scatter acting as a substituting wild.
If at least two of the selected special symbols for high paying symbols and at least three of the selected special symbols for low paying symbols are visible during the feature, each one will expand vertically to cover their entire reel and then be evaluated as line scatters.
Additionally, the player can gamble their win by clicking the gamble button with the ladder symbol. In case of a win, they will land on the highlighted step above their current one, in the case of a loss, on the highlighted lower one.
The card gamble can also be entered by clicking the card gamble button after a win. Here, the player can gamble their win by clicking on a suit colour (red or black) or a suit symbol (hearts, spades, clubs or diamonds). The game will then reveal a random card.
In the case of a suit colour gamble, if the player’s choice matches the colour of the revealed card then they win double their bet. Picking either a red or black card, there is a 50/50 chance of winning. In the case of a suit symbol gamble, if the player’s choice matches the suit symbol of the revealed card then they win quadruple their bet.
WHAT THEY SAY
Kevin Corti, game development director at Spearhead Studios, remarked: “Book of Souls was the second game we made – now, we have over 60! – and, while it’s still one of our best performers, we felt we could make it even better.
“Not only did we radically spruce up the visuals, greatly modernising the game, but we made it much more volatile. We gave it a much higher max win potential and added new gamble and buy-bonus features to give players more control over their experience.”
