Theme and Graphics

We love a good horror-themed online slot here at Slots Temple, which are always good fun to play even when it’s not Halloween. With Book of Shadows, Nolimit City gives us a good scare in the middle of an eerie forest. You’ll encounter creepy cats, dismembered eyeballs and animal sacrifices as a haunting tune plays in the background. The overall art style of the game is great and, like most games from Nolimit City, the aesthetic is totally different from the rest of the developer’s slots.

Book of Shadows Slot RTP and Variance

The RTP (return to player) of Nolimit City's Book of Shadows slot is 96.01%. It’s also a medium volatility which pays out a good mixture of both large and small prizes.

This makes the top prize of 30,338x all the more impressive as medium variance slots tend to have lower top prizes of around 5000x.

How to Win

This Nolimit City slots game begins with 10 paylines (which can expand to 20 – more on that later), and winning combinations are made by landing three or more matching symbols in a row. The Book of Shadows is the scatter and the most generous symbol in the game, along with the witch character – who both pay out 500x. All of the high-paying symbols also pay out for 2-of-a-kind combos, making wins more frequent.

Adjustable Features

In Book of Shadows, players are treated to a couple of mechanics that give players control over the gameplay of the slot. The first is lockable reels, which players can activate by clicking the lock symbol underneath each reel. Locking each reel comes with a price, based on how potentially generous it is to keep that reel in place. Basically, it’s the opposite of the Hyperspins feature you’ll find in Book of Oz.

Then, there’s the Shadow Row feature. This is something we’ve been seeing in more and more slots (like Gems of Egypt and Beetlejuice Megaways), but you don’t often have the opportunity to control it yourself. The game begins with 3 rows and 10 paylines, but you can extend it to 4 rows with 15 paylines and 5 rows with 20 paylines. All you have to do is click the shadow to move it up one row. It will cost you an extra 50% for the four reels and double your wager for the full five reels.

Book of Shadows Free Spins and Bonuses

Landing three or more scatters will trigger the free spins round in Book of Shadows. You’ll get 10 free spins with the same number of Shadow Rows removed from the reels. Before the bonus begins, one symbol is chosen to turn gold (you have once chance to reshuffle for a different symbol). This symbol will then expand to fill the entire reel that it appears on whenever it lands – similar to Book of Dead.

Book of Shadows Slot Overall Review

The Book of Shadows slot from Nolimit City is yet another impressive showing form this developer. Games like Punk Rocker and Deadwood really bring players an exciting online gaming experience, and Book of Shadows is no different.

What really sets this slot apart from others with similar features is the level of control that is given to players. While some slots may feature a single gameplay aspect that can be adjusted, Book of Shadows allows players to lock individual reels and increase the number of winning ways according to their own preferences – and, there’s also a gamble feature that players can choose to use after wins.

The free spins round isn’t particularly ground-breaking, but you can’t ever really go wrong with the Book of Dead-style bonus of expanding symbols. It also seems fairly easy to retrigger the bonus game, so that’s also a big plus in our books.
