Comment: Loved this game. Spent all my time trying to work out the perfect numbers combo. Failed, but failed happily.
What looks like a mild Bingo-Slot hybrid game on the outside is in fact the very entertaining Book of Keno from the genius games makers at Evoplay. This is not just a plug-and-play slot game, but a clever version of a classic game that requires a small degree of skill and a large amount of luck.
Skill games in the slots world are rare, and the Book of Keno requires participation that other games don’t offer. If we gloss past the usual “Join a mystical quest for untold riches in Book of Keno” game description and jump straight to the heart of this game. The numbers that you choose could make a difference in the Book of Keno.
There are ten numbers to choose from. Each number has an allocated value (which can be seen in settings), pick your numbers of choice (similar to picking lottery numbers, but with a better payout ratio), then select a stake and hit play. The rest is Keno. There are 36 numbers on the Bingo card and the call (spin) releases 10 numbers at a time. If your chosen numbers at highlighted, then you win. You can select between 1 and 10 numbers and change them as often as you want.
Keno is perfect for this platform and Evoplay has added all the fabulous Book features to it. Except, for the Book scatter symbols, which was a problem for me at the start. BUT, the more I played this game the more I liked it. Fascination turned to dogged determination to pick the winning combination of numbers. Obviously, this game works from a random number generator, so there is no perfect set of numbers, just a lucky selection.
There is no gamble feature to this game and that doesn’t matter. This is a game that Bingo players, slot players and lottery players will all love.
Evoplay knows their market and making a game like the Book of Keno shows that they love to push the boundaries of what we think a typical Book of… game should be. Have a look through their fabulous catalogue of slot games and you’ll come away with a smile on your face. Nothing complicated, just good old fashioned spin games ideal for your mobile. Book of Rest is a good playing game too.
The Book of Keno has no free spins, no gamble feature and no scatter symbols. That sounds bad, but the pay-outs in this game are pretty good. Add to that the fact that you can pick your own numbers, and this game becomes interesting. Close your eyes and the soundtrack makes you believe that you are playing a Book of… The soundtrack is very ancient Egyptian and so are the graphics, but this is no ordinary Book.
There is no gamble feature in this game.
