The familiar “tomb” theme raises its head in yet another Book of… game with the talented Wager Gaming Systems’ The Book of Earth game. All the classic tell-tale signs of a classic Book game are here, including the obligatory Egyptian-themed game, the expanding symbols and the tastefully done graphics.
The entertainment factor in this game is pretty good, and the graphics and sound card are good too, but there isn’t much here we have seen time and time again. Which, is a real shame as this Book has all the potential of being an instant great, but it isn’t.
The safer gambling element to this game is limited to all the usually 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.
The quick spin feature is set at double speed, so fast in fact, that you can’t see your pot disappearing. Leave well alone and enjoy this game at normal speed.
Wager Gaming Systems or the artist formally known as Vegas Technology isn’t exactly a powerhouse in the Book of… games, but they are well known (if not documented) within the gambling community. The most important thing about them is that they produce games that players want to play, so more, please.
The Book of the Earth 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.
The jackpots are good enough to make you want to come back, but not so big that it’s worth going full bet. That said, in Free Spin mode there is a very good chance of bagging extra spins. Dropping 30 (total) free spins in a game makes a difference to your winnings. Smaller bets worked better for me and managed to keep my pot topped off nicely.
There is no gamble feature on this game, just the usual autoplay mode, which isn’t all that bad.
