Have you heard?  Book of Darkness slot is the perfect blend of combat and cash wins and it is available at Juicy Stakes Casino.  Along with the hero huntress or dark wizard, the monetary strength lies in the Clash of Power… but don’t discount the payout performance of the shadowy free spins!

Win an Epic Encounter and Unlock Riches on the Reels

What is the end game in the Book of Darkness slot?  To win the epic encounter between the huntress and the magician.  The prize?  Control of the grimoire, an ancient book of spells that has the power to increase the balance in your Juicy Stakes Online Casino account by leaps and bounds.

Key Features of the Book of Darkness Slot

Before we get into the twin showpieces of this extraordinary Betsoft slot, here is a breakdown of its salient features:

  • 5 reels and 10 fixed paylines
  • 640 x top pay
  • Wilds, scatters and multipliers
  • Free spins
  • Random replicating symbols
  • $0.10 to $10 betting range

The Creative Stuff

What is notable about the eerie and awesomely entertaining Book of Darkness slot is the attention to detail.  The reels are dark and foreboding, the audio is suitably unnerving and the game symbols are icons of a fantasy world populated by sorcerers and predators of men.

Exploit the High Hit Frequencies

Besides the clear and immersive graphics and slick animations synonymous with the Betsoft Gaming studios, it is the frequency of wins that is likely to pique your interest.  According to the statisticians that have the patience and skill sets to calculate these sorts of things, the hit frequency in the base game is around 40%.

That means that nearly half of the spins you activate in your gaming session at Juicy Stakes Casino pay out something.  What is arguably more relevant is the calculated hit frequencies more than double in the spin offs of the highly anticipated Clash of Power – and that is something to store in your memory bank.

What is more, the wild symbol in the form of the Book of Darkness appears frequently in the base game.  To offset what is usually a flurry of wild wins, however, the developers have excised it from play in both the Shadowform and Clash of Power activated game rounds.

Benefit from an Easily Activated Shadowform Feature

The Book of Darkness also happens to be the scatter symbol that generates scatter pays of up to 160 x.  Hit three or more scatters anywhere on the gaming interface and the decidedly lucrative Shadowform feature is triggered.  It consists of 10 free spins.

Before you are whisked away to the free game time, the pages of the Book of Darkness mysteriously turn to reveal a random symbol that is deposited at the base of the reels.  What is the purpose of the random symbol?  It is your ticket to the big time.

When the randomly selected symbol appears simultaneously on three or more reels, it is replicated to fill part or all of the gaming interface – and that my friends is how you can bank lots of loot at Juicy Stakes Casino!

How easy is it to activate Shadowform?  Dead easy!  In fact, it is not unheard of to trigger the feature more than once in under 100 spins and that’s a welcome fact for sure!

Capitalise on the Clash of Power

Right, now to the big-ticket item in the game – the Clash of Power.  When you line up the huntress, Book of Darkness and the Dark Wizard in a line – or vice versa – it is time to gird your loins for battle.

You have the option to choose either the huntress or the wizard as your hero figure, as they engage in battle during a free spins sequence.  Every time one or other of the icons appear, they expand and contribute towards a hero meter.  If your pick fills the meter, you win an additional 10 free spins plus:

  • 5 x win multipliers if your hero was the huntress or
  • five expanding symbols, rather than two, if the wizard was your preferred warrior!

Now that sounds like the kind of free spins bonus feature that can send the balance in your Juicy Stakes Casino account into orbit!

Don’t Forget the Theoretical RTP Percentage

We have focussed on the high hit frequency, easily activated free spins feature and infinitely generous battle-infused bonus free spins.  How about the average return to player (RTP)?  You know?  That vital statistic that is the counterbalance to the house edge or the in-built advantage the casino has over the players?

The good news is we are not greedy at Juicy Stakes Online Casino.  In fact, we like to feature low edge casino games so that our players can get the lion’s share of the total turnover.   When it comes to individual games like Book of Darkness slot, we are satisfied with an edge of just 3.52% and that of course means the theoretical payout rate is 96.48%!

What is a good RTP for slots?  Anything around 96% or more is considered a good bet, so sign up at Juicy Stakes Casino and claim our free spins welcome bonus.  Once you have had your fill of the bonus slots, you can migrate to the Book of Darkness and put your faith in the huntress or dark wizard to win!
