Book of Ba is an Egyptian themed slot. Ba is an element of the soul represented in bird form that could fly, emphasising the speed and movement of the soul after death. The slot is set in an ancient tomb that has gates lead to the Netherworld. Guarding those gates are lost souls of the dead.
Wild – There is no Wild symbol in this slot.
Free Spins – The “Book of Ba” is the Free Spins symbol. You need 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Spins.
Shatter Mode – Shatter mode is the equivalent to avalanches or tumbles. Every winning combination will see the symbols involved disappear and new symbols added to the reels in their place, giving you another chance to win. If you do so the process continues and will do so indefinitely until you fail to land a winning combination. With each shatter you will increase a win multiplier by 1, up to a maximum of x4 the bet.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins you will be given 10 in total and they can be retriggered. Before the feature begins a symbol will be chosen at random that will expand every time it lands on the reels.
The Book of Ba slot is Tom Horn’s first Egyptian themed game for a number of years and whilst it won’t set the world alight this is a very solid effort. You get Free Spins that can retrigger and come with a special expanding symbol and you get tumbles, or in this case shatters. You don’t get Wilds, which is disappointing and the house edge could be offering better value for money. The slot looks OK but there are far better examples on this theme out there.
