Anna the Explorer Returns as Quickspin Unleashes Its Own "Book" Style Slot in the High Variance Book of Duat!
Anna the Explorer, a character from previous Quickspin slot titles such as Dinosaur Rage and Ark of Mystery, is swinging back into action in an Ancient Egypt setting of tomb exploration in the Book of Duat slot.
With a conscious move towards releasing much more volatile slots, how will Quickspins "Book" slot compare to rival titles? Quickspin has adopted the standard and very generic "Ancient Egyptian theme" for this release, with Book of Ra Deluxe and Book of Dead being the benchmarks for any comparisons.
Whilst the slot's theme is about as generic as you could make it, it is a very safe option. Quickspin has made an excellent attempt to inject some novel, exciting and highly potent features into this slot while retaining that core "Book" expanding symbol feature players love.
With a release date currently set to the 9th of November 2021, Mr Green Casino and many of our other recommended online casinos will have the Book of Duat slot live and playable on release day.
Book of Duat - Base Gameplay
The Book of Duat slot uses a standard 5x3 reel set and comes with the familiar ten fixed paylines you would expect on a classic Book slot. The premium symbols are all based on ancient Egyptian themes, with gods such as Anubis (God of Death) and Sobek (God of Crocodiles) and Anna the Explorer taking the role of the highest paying Explorer symbol.
The Scatter/Wild symbol is the familiar book icon with a scarab on it, so for players familiar with the classic book slots, everything is easy to understand from the offset.
The base gameplay retains the classic "Book slot" gameplay. There is some excellent line hit potential, especially with wilds. Still, realistically these are generally welcome balance boosts whilst hunting for the main bonus round triggers.
The most significant change here is that landing 3 of the Book symbols doesn't instantly trigger the bonus round. Instead, there is a Pick and Click feature. Selecting various tiles in a simple picking round rewards you with a combination of free spins, multipliers and extra Expanding symbols before the bonus round begins.
Trigger the main bonus feature with additional Scatters, and you can look forward to starting the picking round with even more picks and an even more powerful bonus feature.
