If I had to describe the Book of Bamboo video slot by Onlyplay in just a few words, they’d be “instant tranquillity” or very Zen-like. Yes the cover looks like it could be harboring a 90’s Vietnam War movie, but this Book is so far removed from anything war-like or angry, it’s positively lovely.
The Book of Bamboo by Onlyplay is a really enjoyable game with fabulous graphics throughout and a lovely relaxing feeling that makes you want to play more. The payouts are not as forthcoming as other games, but as long as you keep your pots low, it won’t matter.
The animation in the Bonus “free spins” round is great. A screen filled with beautifully coloured Cherry Blossoms and an upbeat soundtrack is exactly what you want. The actual win part wasn’t epic for me, but I got out more than it cost me to play, so that’s a good thing. Obviously, luck as always, plays its part, but every time I bagged the freebie round, it turn into a nice little earner. Not so much with the Buy feature round though, that fell a long way short.
There is no gamble feature in this game, but there is a Respin option. This is a great little add-on, but it’s not cheap. On the bottom of each reel is the option to respin. The cost of each respin is calculated on the potential outcome of the spin, or the value of a potential win. Clever stuff, but only for those with a healthy pot. The other option is turbo spins, which we advise to leave well alone and enjoy the game.
NOTE: Changing your stake mid-game will forfeit all existing respins, so make sure that you have respun before you up or lower your stake.
The Buy Feature in this game is available and called the “Speed up Bonus” feature. As with all buy features it’s worth mentioning again, that they do not always payout, and take all the enjoyment from the game. Stick to the good old-fashioned tried and tested version, patience, and lots of spins.
Onlyplay games are characterized by their impressive graphics, engaging gameplay, and simple mechanics, which makes them a fan favourite at all levels. Scratch cards, lottery-style games, and instant-win games make up an impressive portfolio of games from a game provider committed to quality and innovation. Book of Eyes and Fruity Book are beautifully different.
The Book of Bamboo is built around the classic scatter symbols that you’d normally get with any Book of… slot. Bag a minimum of three scatter symbols to trigger your 10 Free spins Bonus round. In the Bonus round, the Book scatter symbols act as multipliers for your bonus symbols.
Nice little earners and great to get. The graphics, soundtrack, and game pick up make the whole game feel special, but with 96.11% RTP, that special feeling doesn’t come around often enough.
There is no gamble feature on this game, just the usual autoplay mode, which isn’t all that bad.
