Book of the Earth Slot Wild
Briefly mentioned above, the book of the earth is the wild symbol. It substitutes for all regular symbols except the special symbol.
Additionally the book of the earth acts as a scatter during spins. Any time you land 3 or more in a spin it triggers the free spins round.
Once triggered the lions will help pick a special symbol for the free spin rounds. During the round the special symbol may transform or cascade on the entire reel increasing your win for that spin. The wins are calculated on the wager made that triggered the round.
Bet Size Adjustment
Even though the number of lines is fixed at 10 you may adjust the bet size. You do this by changing the coin size bet per line. Adjustable amounts are from $0.01 up to $5.00 per line. This allows you to wager from $0.10 up to $50.00 per spin.

Conclusion to Book of the Earth
To provide a conclusion on this slot we did enjoy playing it. During our review we actually played it in a few different casinos, which we often do. We also actually kept the background music enabled in at least one of the sessions during play. Understandably we know many players like to turn that off, but we enjoy listening to this at times.
Based on the average return and our experience with the game we will likely play this occasionally during visits to WGS based casinos. A game worth trying out especially for those that enjoy slots based on the Egyptian theme.
