Atem was an Ancient Egyptian god – he even predates Ra, the god of the sun who became the culture’s most important deity. He’s the perfect subject for a new 3-row slot based on the popular theme of the great civilisation of old-world Egypt, which drops at Gaming Club desktop and mobile casino on 12 December 2019. This is by no means the first Ancient Egyptian video slot to come from the Microgaming stable, but it is most certainly one of the best.
Travel to Another World
As you spin the 5 reels and watch to see if you’ve landed any winning patterns along the 10 fixed paylines, the culture of Ancient Egypt is dramatically brought to life. You’ll feel the cool breeze rising off the Nile when you hear the epic background music, as well as when you see the icons on the transparent reels.
The reels are coloured, but they still give a clear view to the temple behind them – presumably, a place of worship for Atem himself. The high-value icons are gorgeous images of a snake, lotus blossoms, a wild bird and, of course, the divinity of the hour. The usual 10 – A playing cards are the low-value symbols, rendered in atypically old-world font.
The action in Book of Atem comes fast, which is just how adrenaline-loving online slots players like it. The theoretical Return to Player percentage and hit rate of the high-volatility game are 96.45% and 28.8% respectively, and the slot looks and plays perfectly on all desktops, tablets and smartphones.
Whether you want to use a Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, Android or any other device, Microgaming’s adaptable software makes it possible for you to do so. The wide betting range makes the game even more accessible, by ensuring that it is affordable for all. Coin values range from 0.01 to 0.5, and you can bet between 1 and 5 credits per line. That means wagers as low as $0.1 and as high as $50.00 are accepted, so everyone can try their luck at winning the top jackpot of $270,000.00 as well as the other great payouts.
Atem’s All-Important Book
The Book of Atem is both the Wild and Scatter in this game, almost as omnipotent as the god was believed to be. When 3, 4 or 5 are seen anywhere on the reels at the same time, a 10-spin bonus round begins. These free spins can be retriggered from within the bonus, to take your wins even higher.
As the Wild, the book can stand in for any other icon to help complete a lot more paying combinations than would be possible otherwise. With the rewarding general gameplay as well as the Wild and Scatter features, this slot is already more than rewarding enough to keep players happy. But of course, since this is a Microgaming release, there’s even more to make you smile.
Expanding Wilds to Expand Your Wins
During the free spins, one of the regular icons will be randomly selected to be the Expanding Wild for that particular round. Now that symbol will expand to fill its entire reel, but only if the expansion would result in any further payouts. Once the new Wild has grown to cover the reel, it stays in its bigger size for the duration of the free spins. You don’t miss out on your regular bonus wins either; they are added to the Expansion prizes.
Another All41 Triumph
All41 Studios is a fledgling Estonian-based developer that prioritises innovative slots. For some time they have been one of the companies involved in Microgaming’s mentorship programme, which sees the industry giant partnering with smaller brands to launch exciting games.
The idea is that the start-ups get the experience, resources and distribution network of Microgaming, while brining fresh ideas and creativity to the table themselves. The relationship is beneficial for everyone; both partners and (most importantly) players benefit from the thrilling new releases.
Book of Atem is All41’s latest collaboration for Microgaming, hot on the heels of the popular Le Kaffee Bar, Book of Sahara and Lock-A-Luck. With all the games showing attention to design and detail as well as great functionality, it’s no wonder they have become such player favourites. No one was surprised when Microgaming chose to extend their relationship, and the latest online slots release definitely does not disappoint.
You can enjoy all of All41 and Microgaming’s offerings at Gaming Club Casino, where you’ll be able to take advantage of industry-leading bonuses and service at the same time. Play Book of Atem from 12 December, and until then, check out all the other exhilarating games that are available.
