Books and Pearls Slot Machine
Try Gamomat Slots
Books & Pearls is the newest slot release by Gamomat. It is a Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired slot since the main character looks a lot like Orlando Bloom’s character Will Turner Jr. Basically, you will be seeing a lot of similarities with the movie series, since you’ll be hunting for gold, there will be magic and pirates involved in the slot.
The Wild in the slot is the Orlando Bloom-looking Pirate. It substitutes for regular symbols on the reels except for the Bonus symbol and the two different Scatters. One of the Scatters is the Book, while the other one is the Pearl.
Now, the entire gameplay depends on these two Scatters. Basically, you’re getting two types of Free Spins, one triggered by the Scattered Book, the other one by the Scattered Pearl.
Free Spins A are triggered by 3, 4 or 5 Books. You get 10 Free Spins, with the possibility to get additional Free Spins. The feature starts with a draw of a Bonus symbol. Any symbol except for the Book symbol can become a Bonus symbol for the duration of this feature. In case you get the Pirate to become the Bonus symbol, multiple Wilds on one line will count as the Ship winning combo, if it is the highest win on the line. If you land at least two or three Bonus symbols on different reels and you form a win, after you get paid for the win, the reels that contain the Bonus symbols are stamped to full Bonus symbol reels. The value of the Bonus symbols is the same as the Scatter wins.
Free Spins B are triggered, evidently, by 3, 4 or 5 Scattered Pearls. During the 15 Free Spins you get with the Pears, you get the possibility to trigger additional Free Spins. All wins during the Free Games B are tripled!
The game also offers the Gamble feature where you also get two options, to choose the Card gamble or the Ladder gamble. In short, if you win the gamble, your wins get doubled, if not, you lose them all.
Theme & Design
Books & Pearls takes you on an island, quite similar to the one in Pirates of the Caribbean. You can see the sea in the back, the palm trees and the other plants on the left and the right of the reels.
On the reels, you can see the Pirate, which is the highest paying symbol and the Wild, then you can see the pirate’s Ship, a Chest filled with gold and jewellery, the navigation wheel and the anchor of the ship. For the lowest-paying symbols, you get the playing card symbols from 9 through A. The two Scatters present the Pearl and the Book.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 10 paylines in the slot, which are not fixed. Instead, you can choose whether you want all of them active or only 5 of them. The minimum bet you can place for 5 lines is $0.05, while the maximum for 10 lines is $6.00.
For the max bet, the 5 Pirate symbols can deliver to you a $3,000.00 payout, while 5 Books, 5 Pearls and 5 Ships, each give you a $1,200.00. If during the Free Games A you get the Pirate, and you fill the reels with this Bonus symbol, your winnings can go insane, and if you get to the bottom of the Free Games B, you could win triple the amount you've won. For one winning combo with the Pirate, you could get $9,000.00, so imagine filling the reels with this symbol! The RTP for the game is the standard one 96.06%.
When it comes to design and theme, we're not that impressed with Books & Pearls. The theme is too frequently used in slots and is not even that well presented. In fact, the reels look really outdated, compared to many new slots that are being released nowadays. Payout-wise, it is not that bad. You can get pretty decent payouts, and pretty often. Therefore, if you’re not bothered by the design, you could really enjoy the payouts in Books & Pearls.
