SlotBeats ‘sphinx’ SYNOT reigns supreme as it claims our SOTW

SYNOT Games has mummified the rest of the competition to claim SlotBeat’s latest Slot of the Week award, following the release of Book of Secrets Extra, which takes players on a journey to a land of hieroglyphics and royal treasures.  

On a 5×3 reel set, SYNOT’s latest slot title presents players with a medium-high volatility slot that offers 10-paylines and an RTP between 85.11 and 97.93 per cent. The game showcases bonus features such as expanding and special spotlighted symbols to offer a maximum win of up to x500 the player’s stake.

Matej Sopoci, Chief Product Officer at SYNOT Games, commented: “We are bringing back the successful ‘Book of’ concept extended by improved free spins and the buy feature. We’re delighted to introduce our renewed product with an update which will hopefully bring many entertaining moments to our customers and partners.” 

Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, using 10 through to Ace. Next up, Egyptian artefacts are used to depict the medium value symbols, with red staffs, green scarabs and golden pharaoh heads.

The Book of Secrets female explorer represents the highest-paying symbol, offering between x1 and x500 the player’s preferred bet.

Additionally, book scatters, that also work as wilds, can drop onto the reels. These books trigger 10 free spins if three or more land on the reels at once, substituting for all other symbols as well.

During the free spins feature, a random symbol can be selected to become a special symbol for the duration of the bonus game mode. Only the book scatter cannot be chosen as this special symbol. 

After a regular payout from a free spin, the special symbol can expand to cover more of the reel set to potentially award a higher payout. These expanding symbols will only occur where a win can be formed using the chosen symbol. 

Players have the opportunity to gamble all, or half, of their winnings after every payout in a 50/50 card select. If players can correctly guess whether a random player card will be black or red, they will double their stake. Guessing incorrectly will cause players to lose their gambled winnings.
