If you’ve played Toptrend Gaming demo slots before you know they tend to have smooth gameplay, excellent graphics and a few interesting bonus features. Book of the West is no exception, with its clearly laid out 5x3 grid, the 10 paylines and a free spins round that has both multipliers and Expanding Symbols. This is a simple yet exciting offering from TopTrend.
Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack
Few eras of American history have the hold over the public imagination that the Wild West does. The sight of a cowboy riding the open plain strikes at something deep in the soul. Book of the West takes advantage of all the imagery you love, from films, TV and indeed the grand tradition of the Wild West slot.
You’re in what appears to be a wooden barn, a rope hanging on one side of the reels and a barrel sitting on the other. Lanterns swing and spark from the frame, which is made of even more wood. There’s even a wanted poster, warning you about the bandit who also appears as a symbol on the reels, where he sits alongside a much more charming cowboy, a lady, a pistol and the titular book. It’s round out with an equally Western sounding piece of music, the kind that would play as John Wayne enters town.
Book of the West RTP and Variance
If you’re looking for a 96% or more RTP then you’re going to be a little disappointed. The average return over a long session of Book of the West has been calculated at the slightly low 95.32%, though as always this is a guideline rather than a guarantee. There’s no official information on the volatility, or frequency of wins.
How to Play Book of the West
Straighten your hat, mount your steed and let’s get going:
- At the very bottom of the screen, right at the lefthand corner, is a row of buttons. From left to right they’re 'Home', 'Account Summary', 'Gaming Guide', 'Volume' and 'Full Screen'.
- Your account summary will show you your current balance (also displayed at the bottom of the screen), how much you can withdraw and if you have any bonuses.
- Gaming Guide will give you an in depth explanation of the game rules and features. For direct description of symbols and their values, you’ll need the paytable, available behind the i button just under the reels.
- Volume is just mute and unmute, no sliding meter. Full screen does what it says on the label, maximises and minimises your display.
- Next to the info button for the paytable there are 2 adjustors, each consisting of a display with plus and minus symbols. One is for credit value, the other is for bet multiplier. You’ll want them both at your preferred level before you start playing.
- Now we move over to the right of the screen. There is a bet max button here, suitable for sending your wager right to the topmost bet multiplier available, but it will also set the reels turning straight away without you hitting spin, so be sure you want it.
- If you see the little lightning bolt on the autospin button, that will activate turbo mode and send everything to top speed.
- Speaking of autospin, that’s one of two ways you can play. Either set autospin to stop after 10, 25, 50 or 100 automatic spins, or when features are triggered, or stick to the spin button (or spacebar) and keep one spin at a time. It’s up to you, just don’t forget your budget and have fun and always play responsibly!
Bet & Win Sizes
The credit value ranges from 0.10 to 1.00. The bet multiplier can be between x1 and x5. That means a total bet ranging comfortably from 1.00 to 50.00.
A dynamic paytable changes as your bet changes, but when you start with the minimum wager, it looks like this for 3, 4 and 5 matches, with some symbols also paying from 2:
10, J, Q - 5, 25, 100
K, A - 5, 40, 150
Pistol, Bandit - 5, 30, 100, 750
Lady - 5, 40, 400, 2000
Cowboy - 10, 100, 1000, 5000
Also, the Super Wild pays in its own right as well as serving as both a substitute and a scatter:
Book Wild - 20, 200, 2000
Book of the West Bonus Features
If you find the Super Wild 3 times, you will trigger 10 free spins with a multiplier. Find 3 more Super Wilds and you can retrigger the same 10 spins and multiplier at the same bet.
During the free spins round, a random symbol will be chosen to expand. This means it can grow to fill 3 spaces on the reel if that expansion will allow you to create an extra winning combination.
Book of the West Review
This isn’t a groundbreaking or complex slot, but it’s good-looking and atmospheric with some nice extra touches in both graphics and gameplay. The most exciting symbol is the book that at once pays in its own right, serves as a wild, and acts as a scatter than can trigger free spins. The Expanding Symbols during free spins also add excitement. Book of the West will probably appeal to people who enjoyed the Dead Or Alive slot from NetEnt.
