Book of Gold: Double Chance is one of the newest casino slot offerings at Stakers. We thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at it and let you know what it's like, so we spent two hours playing the game in order to give you our unbiased opinion. That way, you can decide for yourself if you want to play it. Read on to find out what we thought of it.
First, this is a very basic online slot machine – but that's not a critique. These days many games have a ton of mini-games and other distractions that can get in the way of simply spinning the reels. If you want to find those games, you can. But sometimes, you want a simple slot machine you can easily play and understand.
Book of Gold: Double Chance is that game. It has a standard layout of face cards and Egyptian icons. They are crisply rendered and not too minutely detailed. While you spin, you need to land three of them in a line in order to win. There are only ten pay lines, so figuring out what is a win and what is not is really simple.
The game pays out on a fairly regular basis as well, so you won't find yourself going too much in the hole.
When the game gets interesting is when you score three or more Pharaoh icons. Then it gives you ten free spins. But first, it takes you to a page where you see the golden book, and it randomly selects two icons.
When these icons show up in the free spins round, they will expand and take over an entire reel. That alone is a payout! But because you will commonly get three or more of these icons, it can lead to a huge win. Plus, more Pharaohs are placed on the board and when you get another three, you'll be rewarded with additional ten free spins.
For us, this meant that we wound up playing a total of 20 free spins, and nearly every other one was a winner. By the time the free spins round was over, we'd netted a full 154.80 credits. Not a bad haul at all!
Then when you go back to the main game, keep trying to get at least three in a row of icons. In general this will be the face cards, though every so often you'll score a bigger win.
We found this game to be very, very low variance. You never went up much and, in general, you never went down much. That said, getting the free spins round will put you up a fair amount.
We know that lots of people like low-variance, simple games. If that's you, then this is one of the best games you can play. It's easy to follow, doesn't clutter up the board with a ton of icons, and has an easy-to-understand free spin big win system.
Overall, we rate it 4.5 out of 5. That's one of the highest reviews we've ever given a video slot machine, and we hope you take it seriously.
Of course, if you are looking for a high-variance game, then Book of Gold Double Chance won't be for you. But you can find your game.
For most people this game will be a sure winner and well worth your time. It's super fun and puts you right into the action. You don't have to learn a lot of stuff in order to play. Instead you can just sit back and watch the reels spin.
It's really great to see a simple easy to follow game come out these days. Take it for a spin if you are ready to play!
