For players who love horror-themed slots, they will find plenty on the market, Book of Eon is a cool slot packed with crisp visuals and unique expanding icons that can improve players wins.
If players dare to step into the haunted mansion, they may find some real cash prizes inside. Book of Eon has a dark and brooding horror theme complimented with organ-heavy audio, combined with a spooky reel backdrop and gothic icons. Bets begin at just 0.01, but punters can spin at 4.00 per line by using one of the ten coin levels.
The heroes in Book of Eon are a couple, Matilda and Edward, who are torn apart when Matilda dies young. A broken-hearted and desperate Edward seeks aid from wherever he can find solace, from a witch who claims she can bring back the dead. Edward succeeds in bringing back his true love, except there's a caveat: Matilda is now a hideous zombie.
Matilda and Edward are central to the Book of Eon video slot, both pay the top prizes in the game, awarding up to 5000 times players line bet if they land five Matilda symbols on a winning line. Players can win ten times line their stake if they hit only two Matilda symbols. The unfortunate Edward, much in need of a good sleep by the look of his face, will win players 2,000 times should they land five of his sorry face on any winning line.
Next up is the evil witch, who will win players the best prize of 750 times should they land five of her on a winning line. Again, only two matching symbols on a win line earns players a prize. The potion symbol that is used to bring Matilda back from the dead pays the same jackpot amount. Finally, the ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace card symbols complete the lower-value icons in Book of Eon; paying out between five and 150 times a payers total bet stake.
Bonus features of Book of Eon
Including a good variety of payouts, Book of Eon features a sound bonus too. The spellbook doubles up as both the game's scatter and its wild and icon, replacing all other regular symbols within the game.
The wild scatter symbol pays prizes ranging from two times to two-hundred times a player’s bet should they manage to land three to five on the icons on the reels. Players who land three of the symbols anywhere on the screen will activate a free spins bonus game, with the possibility to retrigger the spins when the free spins are in play.
During the free spins, there is an extra bonus feature players can enjoy. Randomly, a unique expanding icon will be selected before the spins commence. The special symbol may expand to cover all positions on its reel. However, the icon will only increase if it is already part of a winning combination.
The Book of Eon slot might only have ten paylines, but it has a lot of potential for bonus wins, especially the expanding icon once it is triggered in the free spins feature. Even better, this particular feature tends to trigger regularly, and if players can retrigger the free spins, it can frequently turn into a productive session for punters.
