I’ve taken a look at the fresh new game from Betsoft – Book of Helios. Exclusively at BitStarz until the official release, it’s definitely worth your time.
Meet Helios – God of the Sun
There are worse things than being known as the God of the Sun. Telling the grandkids about how you drove your fiery chariot across the sky from east to west every day, would make for a pretty good bedtime story, am I right?
Helios has a lot to live up to and today we’re going to find out if he can do just that in the new Book of Helios slot by Betsoft.
Helios looks as ready as ever
The game itself won’t actually be released until June 30th, but you are in luck. Thanks to an exclusive release, BitStarz is the only place where you can play the game until its official release at the end of the month.
Betsoft knows the power of great graphics
Get Comfortable With Being in the Hot Seat
Being in control of a flying chariot like this isn’t always easy and neither is conquering these 5×3 reels. A 95.58% RTP, high volatility and a shot at a 20,168x multiplier will keep you in the hot seat but with a few big wins under your belt, you’ll soon be as comfy as in your own favorite couch.
BitStarz has the bet limit topped at €18, leaving a max win of €363,024. You’ll be glad to know you can use your favorite crypto, while earning your title as a proud member of the Greek deity.
If you are playing with BTC, they will appear as uBTC which is MicroBit. In numbers, this comes down do 1 uBTC = 0.00000100 BTC
This is the scatter and wild symbol
Wild Lightning Strikes
A lightning bolt will strike the book, making it impossible to miss. This is actually a quite impressive graphic effect and definitely brings some action to the table, especially if you get two books at once.
Scatters can only appear on reels 2-4, which is fine.
Ride the Free Spins
Not surprising, it takes 3 scatters to trigger 10 Free Spins. Even though I was enjoying the graphics and base game, I was glad to see it didn’t take all that long to pull it off and get an invitation to the bonus round.
Look at those colors
A Random Special Symbol
Before you can start spinning, you will be given a random symbol that will be considered special. If this symbol can be found on the reels and can create a winning combination, each one of them will expand vertically.
In the win above, you can see my special symbol was the crossbow. This is also what caused my win to turn into quite a nice one.
Not a bad win
Ok, not a bad first experience at all. Only betting 5 uBTC, I ended up winning 243.50 uBTC, so I was not complaining.
Normally, I would be happy to get a taste of the bonus round so I was surprised when I was invited back a mere 10 spins later.
Most wins in the bonus round is because of the special symbol
Making Things Exciting
You can see the graphics are insanely wild and there are flames and glowing eyes all over the place. I’m all for making things exciting and great graphics can go a long way.
Not as lucky but still happy
I wasn’t as lucky the second time around but I still managed to make some decent money. Sure, 118 uBTC is less than half of 243.50 uBTC but I had a great time AND I won. What’s there to complain about?
You have the option of buying Free Spins
How Much for 10 Free Spins?
Some days you will strike out every single time and scatters find you appalling. This is when the Buy feature comes in handy and BetSoft was kind enough to set it up for you.
Considering I was lucky enough to make it to the bonus round twice already, I didn’t feel a need to pay a steep price for 10 Free Spins. With my bet size of 5 uBTC, I was asked to cough up as much as 327.50 uBTC which I was not interested in.
You can adjust the bet level for a different price
Maybe Next Time
If I hadn’t gotten 10 Free Spins “the natural way,” there’s a good chance I would’ve taken this option even though the price seems a bit high.
Book of Helios – A Bestseller
I think Betsoft has done a fantastic job with Book of Helios and I expect it to become a hit this summer. The game looks great and plays even better.
Both the base game and bonus round are fun to play and even though the asking price in the Buy feature is a tad bit high for my liking, I was happy to see it there.
Remember, you can only find the game at BitStarz right now. The official release won’t be until the end of the month so unless you want to swing by BitStarz, you’ll have to wait around 10 days for a shot at Helios’ fiery and lucrative ride across the sky!
