Comment: Is Ragnar Lothbrok dressed as Santa?? Brilliant
Who knew Santa was a Viking?? The Book of Christmas Eve by the brilliantly talented Nucleus Gaming is the best seasonal-inspired game we’ve played yet. Christmas will never be the same again.
The main character in this game looks like Ragnar Lothbrok dressed as Santa. “Oh look, it’s Santa with an axe, let’s not get on his naughty list”. Chilling and captivating with a brilliant not-for-kids vibe. Add to that the Axes, bauble bombs, demon-style Snowmen, and a Northman-style soundtrack, and this game is set to go. A great take on a classic tale that looks like it is set in the “not for tourists” part of Lapland.
This game offers a “Buy” feature where you can shortcut your way to 10 Free spins. Normally we’d say avoid at all costs, but this one seemed to work every time of asking. Obviously, we needed to test it, so we started on a lowish stake game (.70€) game, which cost a €45 buy-in, and on the first set of 10 spins, we dropped €245. Thinking this was just a fluke, we played on and tried the same again and worked away with 67€ win.
Not to be deterred, we tested the buy feature on a higher stake of €3 which cost €196 for 10 Free spins. Surprise surprise, we bagged a respectful €232 win. Obviously, luck played its part, but this is the first game we have played where the buy feature has worked every time.
The safer gambling element of this game is limited to an autoplay function. That said, there is a handy number of spins + spins cost = total cost display. The rest is good old-fashioned dose of self-restraint. There is a Turbo feature too, but this just sucks all the fun out of the game.
Nucleus Gaming is a standout game developer that specialises in visually appealing games with amazing 3D slots quality casino games. Nucleus Gaming makes the difference, with their perfect blend of high-quality graphics and cleaver game mathematics incorporated in every 3D slot. A brilliant innovative character list chocked full of depth and realism makes you want to come back for more. Seriously entertaining video poker games are also available under the game portfolio of this talented game provider.
The Book of Christmas Eve 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.
The jackpots and wins in this game were really good. Obviously, luck played its part in this game, but we never fell short of enjoyment. Graphics and entertainment take center stage in all Nucleus Gaming 3D slot games. It isn’t easy developing games for an industry that has so many talented developers, but when you find one with the determination to stand out the way the Nucleus Gaming does, make sure you take the time to play their games.
There is no gamble feature on this game, just the usual autoplay mode, which isn’t all that bad.
