Set sail for adventure in Book of the East by Swintt
Software provider’s epic slot features Free Spins, Expanding Symbols and 10 lines to win
Journey back to the time of boat battles and brave warriors in Book of the East by Swintt – an all-new slot adventure from the in-demand software providers that allows players to buy directly into the bonus round to improve their odds of landing truly legendary prizes.
Featuring five reels, three rows and 10 lines to win, the game takes place aboard an ancient warship that’s brought to life by animated design elements including billowing sails and swinging lanterns. A dramatic soundtrack strikes the right note for the epic adventure ahead, with players able to plot a course for plunder by setting their sights on the game’s top prize multiplier of 4,434x.
As the first game in the Swintt catalogue to include a Buy Feature button, players will have the option to purchase Free Spins directly for an extra wager of 75x their bet, though they can also be triggered in the base game when three or more Dragon Book symbols appear anywhere on the reels.
Once activated, the screen will plunge beneath the waves as 8 Free Spins are awarded and a regular symbol is chosen at random to expand. If this symbol appears on any reel during the feature, it will stretch to fill the entire column, with paylines being re-calculated to create huge prize combinations.
Whether activated in the base game or bought into directly, the feature can be prolonged by landing three or more further Dragon Book symbols in a single spin. When this happens, players will receive an extra 8 Free Spins plus a multiplier prize of up to 200x based on the number of triggering symbols.
As an additional incentive, expanding symbols can also be activated during the base game by collecting golden keys. Whenever one of these special icons appears, it will automatically be added to a bar that sits above the reels, and once three have been collected a free re-spin will be triggered.
Before this re-spin takes place, a random symbol will again be selected to expand, with wins being calculated in the same way as they are in the feature. Once used, the key meter will revert to zero and players will have the opportunity to start collecting them again in order to trigger more re-spins.
David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “With its high production values and innovative features, Book of the East is one of our most ambitious slots to date. As the first game in the Swintt catalogue to offer a Buy Feature option, we’re sailing into uncharted waters for the company and we hope that players will join us on what promises to be an unforgettable adventure.”
