SlotBeats has assigned its SOTW to Relax Gaming’s ‘first-of-its-kind’ slot

Relax Gaming has found the perfect blend of ‘adventure, mystery and excitement’ to claim SlotBeats’ Slot of the Week.

Book of 99 is Relax’s Greek mythology-themed title which boasts an RTP of 99 per cent, noted as the ‘first slot’ to offer such a high Return to Player percentage. 

“The ‘Book of’ genre is a well-read one, but as always, our development team has done an amazing job in re-defining its legacy – marking Book of 99 as a game that truly stands out among the competition,” explained Simon Hammon, CPO at Relax Gaming on the launch of the title.

“It’s not only the generous 99 per cent RTP that makes this game stand tall, but also a great slot experience in its own right, with a host of engaging features ready to wow its audience. We’re looking forward to seeing what players make of our new approach!”

Similar to other ‘Book of’ titles, the players will aim to land book symbols to trigger the game’s feature modes. The symbol itself is a wild, which replaces pay symbol to complete payline wins, and also works as a Scatter. 

If the player lands three or more on the grid, it awards 10 free spins. Yet, before the round commences, one of the pay symbols is randomly chosen to become the special Expanding Symbol.

On each spin, special symbols expand to cover all of the positions on the reel after any regular wins have been paid yet players will aim to get full-screen wins to be awarded the biggest prize. Free spins can be retriggered when three or more book symbols land within the bonus round.

Furthermore, the title comes with a wild collection symbol. When a wild symbol lands within the base game, the collection meter, which is placed on the side of the crease, increases by one. When filled with 99 collected wilds, 10 free spins are awarded.

“When we set out to build Book of 99 we wanted to create the best “Book of” game out there, one truly made for players,” commented Daniel Jonsson, head of games at Relax Gaming, on being awarded Slot of the Week.

“With 99 per cent RTP we could add a quick collection feature so that players trigger free spins more frequently, making the game flow rapid and responsive. Graphically, the game came together very well with an odyssey theme and a feeling of adventure, mystery and excitement.

“Overall, I think we really succeeded and I believe Book of 99 is a game players will return to and which will grow over time. It’s fantastic to see it make Slot of the Week during its launch period and we’re really excited to see all the positive reviews coming through on the game.”

As previously mentioned, the title comes with a 99 per cent RTP whilst also incorporating a high volatility. To play a demo version of Book of 99, click here to be directed to Relax Gaming’s official site.
