Swintt hops into the holiday season with Book of Easter
Sought-after software provider’s latest release invites players to embark on an eggcellent adventure as they crack into rewarding Free Spins that feature special expanding symbols
While Easter may be commonly associated with bunnies, chicks and chocolate eggs, the hugely popular holiday is also about resurrection – and this April, Swintt are breathing new life into their beloved “Book” series of slots with the launch of the much-anticipated Book of Easter.
A five-reel, ten-payline game, Book of Easter invites players to embark on an eggcellent adventure as they team up with a pink-haired anime warrior and her cute bunny sidekick. Set to a backdrop of towering mountains and verdant spring valleys, the slot features an entirely unique line-up of symbols including the two aforementioned heroes, carrots and a selection of brightly-decorated Easter eggs.
Of course, like every game in the popular “Book” series, Book of Easter again features the all-important bonus-triggering scatter symbol. Depicted this time as a green tome with a golden rabbit on the cover, players will need to land three or more of these special symbols in a single spin to activate the slot’s main bonus feature and will also receive an additional multiplier prize for their troubles when they do.
Should the “Book” feature be activated, players will receive an initial eight Free Spins with a regular base game symbol being chosen at random to expand. Whenever the selected icon appears during the Free Spins, it can potentially stretch to cover the reel if there’s a possibility of further winning paylines being created. What’s more, wins are also awarded in this manner for non-adjacent symbols.
The Free Spins feature can also be retriggered whenever players land three or more subsequent scatters, with this awarding an additional eight games plus the corresponding multiplier. Players can also trigger a random expanding symbol feature by collecting three special key symbols, which enhances their chances of big wins.
Whenever one of these unique icons appears anywhere in view, it will be stored in a special collection metre above the reels. Once three keys are acquired, one expanding symbol is chosen, and players can boost their odds of landing the top 4,434x multiplier.
If collecting three “Book” scatter symbols doesn’t sound like their kind of egg hunt, players will also be able to access the Free Spins round directly by using the “Buy Feature” button. This option will cost them an additional bet, but will automatically award eight Free Spins and a random expanding symbol.
David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “This April, we’re inviting players to join us on an egg hunt like no other in our cracking new Book of Easter slot.
“Another exciting chapter in the iconic series, Book of Easter incorporates the same Free Spin and expanding symbol mechanics that have made previous ‘Book’ slots such a success, only this time the action is further enhanced by the addition of collectible key symbols and a Buy Feature option. With players able to get their hands on a top prizes of 4,434x their bet, they’d be hopping mad to miss it!”
