Book of Sam (ELK Studios) slot REVIEW

Book of Sam (ELK Studios) ReviewThis is not the first time we meet ELK’s quirky troll family, but it’s the most memorable experience thus far. Book of Sam follows the charming creatures on their holiday to Las Vegas, and the neon-infused setting is far more engaging than the forest and beach settings in predecessor installments. You really feel like you’re going with them on the trip thanks to the immersive intro and visuals, and it’s a joy to see what can be done with the Egypt theme with a bit of imagination added to the mix.

ELK is, quite literally, going to town with the cliches this overused theme usually displays, and the troll kids seem to enjoy the artifacts in their own special way. You get 3 different troll modifiers in all stages of the game at random times, and they hit more often in the expanding symbols bonus round. Up to 3 symbols can expand from the get-go, and up to 5 is possible. The 10,000x potential is twice the average for the ‘book of’ genre, but the top-tier 94 % RTP is sadly a deal-breaker for many players.

Book of Sam Slot Features

You need 2 to 5 matching premium symbols on a payline to win, and they pay between 10 and 500 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins. The Book symbol is both wild and scatter, and as a wild it steps in for pay symbols to help complete wins. The wild pays the same as the top-tier Sam symbol, should you land a win with nothing but wilds.

The Electric Treats feature can trigger in all stages of the game, and it happens each time one of the troll family character symbols creates a win of any kind:

Sam - awards a respin with a sticky book scatter/wild, and the sticky book serves as an expanding wild in the bonus round.

Sandra - awards a respin with a multiplier that boosts any win.

Maggie - awards a symbol redrop after removing low-value symbols, cats, or Maggie symbols. Expanding symbols will not be removed.

The Bonus Round triggers when you land 3, 4, or 5 book scatters in view, and this gives you 8 free spins with 1, 2, or 3 expanding symbols, respectively. Which pay symbols are chosen as expanding is totally random, and these special symbols expand to generate full-payline wins if enough instances land anywhere in view (at least 2 premium symbols anywhere, or 3+ royals).

Landing 3+ book scatter/wilds during the bonus round awards extra spins as well as +1 extra expanding symbol. You can get up to 5 expanding symbols at best, and Sandra’s multiplier is persistently active during any Electric Treat modifier. It’s not active on regular free spins, however, and the book symbol becomes an expanding wild that helps complete expanding wins if Sam’s electric treat is active.

The X-iter Feature Buy menu is available in some jurisdictions, but not in the UK for sure. It comes with the following options:

Bonus Hunt - pay 2x the stake to double your bonus round chances.

Electric Treat - pay 10x the stake to get a guaranteed Electric Treat.

Expanding Symbols - pay 50x the stake to get a spin where all symbols are expanding.

Bonus Round - pay 100x the stake to get the regular bonus round.

Super Bonus - pay 500x the stake to get a bonus round where all symbols are expanding.

The 200 Spins Book of Sam Slot Experience

You get a decent taste of the base game, before we purchase the Super Bonus Round at 0:43 into the 4:34-minute highlights video. You get to see plenty of expanding symbol action, as well as Electric Treat triggers, and simply hit the play button below to check it all out for yourself.

Review Summary

ELK makes it seem so easy and natural, but having the charming troll family travel to Vegas instead of back in time to ancient Egypt is a highly enjoyable twist. They still get to use Egyptian imagery and artifacts, albeit in a playful way (like the Ankh cross slingshot). You’re basically whisked away into a magic world of excitement from the get-go, and the Electric Treat feature keeps you guessing during base game play.

Getting up to 3 expanding symbols from the start in the bonus round is an interesting twist as well, but you will get only 1 from 3 scatters most of the time. The multiplier can help out either way, and the electric treat modifier seemed to trigger more frequently during the feature. It all adds up to a highly enjoyable and unusual book slot experience, and it’s definitely refreshing compared to yet another dusty Egyptian tomb.
