If 3, 4, or 5 book symbols appear on the reels, you will activate the bonus game and receive 10 free spins. A symbol is chosen at random to become the Expanding Symbol that will appear as a giant symbol that covers the entire reel.
The progressive jackpot feature is randomly triggered by Book of Atem symbols on the reels. When this feature activates, a jackpot reel with blue, green, red, and yellow segments that gives you a chance to win 1 of 4 guaranteed jackpots. The blue segments represent the Mini jackpot that starts at $10, landing on a green segment gives you the Minor jackpot that starts at $100, the red segments represent the Major jackpot that starts at $50,000, and the single, yellow segment is the WowPot that starts at $2,000 000.
The simple concept of Book of Atem is the ideal platform for the WowPot jackpot and an elegant package. The game's art style is breath-taking and features exquisitely crafted backgrounds and symbols that almost allow you to feel the hazy desert sun. The base game is an uncomplicated process where high-value symbol combinations can pay you out decent amounts. The free spins game could bring you 5000x your stake if the chosen expanding symbol is the pharaoh, but the potential you will be hoping for is the WowPot progressive prize that starts at a cool $2 million and could change your life forever.
If you felt the original Book of Atem was a bit tame for your taste, the added progressive jackpots in this updated version should give you the excitement you were seeking.
