As the Greek Sun god bursts onto our screens in the Book of Helios, Betsoft does what they do best and entertains us with their next edition of the fabulous Book of… series of games.
The original Betsoft Book of… series i.e. Book of Darkness with its epic soundtrack, was a great game to play. The dynamics and graphics of the game let it down a little, but the Book of Helios delivers on all fronts. An altogether different look, sound, and feel to this game hits all the spots. The graphics are brilliant and the gameplay in the Book of Helios is exactly what you’d expect from a leading games provider.
The Book of Helios is one of the few games that I have played on the maximum bet and walked away with anything close to a money-back win. In fact, I spent 40 minutes with the same starting pot of 100€ and managed to walk away with a 40€ win. Not that I would advise you to do the same, but in the name of testing, this one worked out perfectly.
The safer gambling element to this game is limited to all the usual autoplay mode options. Basically, what you get here is a good old-fashioned dose of self-restraint, or in other words, this is just a spin and win the game with a basic autoplay mode.
Fun fact: Helios is the Greek version of Ra, both Sun gods to their respective people, and both epic editions to the brilliant Book of… series. Also known throughout Greek religion as one of the Titans, Helios is believed to have driven his chariot from east to west across the sky by day. At night he sailed around the northerly stream of the Ocean in a huge cup.
BetSoft has taken the art of game-making to the next level with a talented staff of graphic artists and 3D animators. Between them, they have stacked up an impressive who’s who of slot games, including the wonderful Book of Darkness. Take time to look through their other games list such as the fabulous Slots Father II, and it’s easy to see just how versatile they are.
The Book of Helios 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 fabulous. I dropped 2x 1,000€ in the bonus rounds and bagged a couple of tasty pots outside of the bonus feature games. Obviously, luck played its part in this game, but it felt great and I will be back.
There is no gamble feature on this game, just the usual autoplay mode, which isn’t all that bad.
