Comment: The xWays and the xNudge feature make this game pop.
Is it just me or do the characters in Spearhead Studio’s Book of Spies Mission X look like a mixture of Mission Impossible team player Luther and James Bond villain Le Chiffre? The background soundtrack is all about the suspense. Trigger a big pot through the nudge feature and the music quickens and the suspense builds.
Join Special Agent Lara Jones on yet another impossible mission to defund the digital vaults of an evil spymaster and steal the “Book Of Spies”. This might look like a complicated Book of… slot game, and indeed it is, but complicated in a good way. The smallest of wins are magnified when the xWays or xNudge are triggered.
The addition of exciting features like xWays*, and the xNudge** tumbling scatters features add a different dimension to a game that offers lots of layers of the same thing. A highly volatile game with a high max win. 1,024 ways expanding up to a max of 16,807 ways
*xWays® mystery symbols that can hold 2 to 4 of the same symbols inside it and will expand the reel to be up to 7 symbols high to increase the possible pay wins.
**xNudge® wild symbol that exists on reels 2 and 4 and if present will always expand upwards to replace the symbols above it. This offers multipliers and tumbling scatters
The Book of Spies Mission X is the sort of game that you probably wouldn’t add to your favourites list, but you would recommend just for the fabulous Boost feature that makes playing it worthwhile.
The safer gambling element is limited in this game. There is no auto-play available, so every spin/play is done manually. Obviously, you can’t control your losses, but you can control how many times you hit the spin button.
Spearhead Studios are massive. Not just in the size of what they do, but in what they bring to the iGaming world of slots. Part of the EveryMatrix group, Spearhead have added some memorable games to the fabulous list of Book of… series of games, including Blue Diamond Book, Book of the Princess, Book of Souls Remastered, Book of Souls II El Dorado and the Book of the King.
The Book of Spies Mission X is built around the classic scatter symbols that you’d normally get with any Book of… slot, but with a digital look and feel. Three triggers the Bonus spins and you are then taken to the actual Spies Book which reveals your Bonus symbol, and the spins begin. You start with 9 free spins.
Prizes in this game are not the biggest we’ve come across, but they are generous when you hit the xNudge or xWays spins, including the bonus rounds. It took us a few coins to trigger the free spins through the Book scatter symbols, but the wait was worth it.
There is no gamble feature in this game. The rest is just good old-fashioned reels and spins with good graphics and an OK soundtrack.
