- The latest ‘book of’ slot, this time from Iron Dog Studios
- Mini-game creates a smaller version of the main bonus
- Expanding symbols in the free spins bonus
Book of Ba’Al slot is Brough to you by Iron Dog Studios and they’re the latest developer to try their hand at the famous ‘book of’ slots, known for expanding symbols during the free spins bonus rounds. Can this one do enough to stand out in the crowd? Let’s take a closer look and find out.
The design certainly doesn’t stand out as it continues with the overused Egyptian theme. They haven’t even tried to do much here and I think it’s a shame as it’s a good way to get noticed when copying other slots. There are 5 reels here with 3 rows, giving you a total of 10 pay lines. All you need is a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10, Jack or Queen
- King or Ace
- Ankh or Eye
Then you have the book symbol, and this is both a wild, substituting for all others in a winning combination, as well as a scatter, used to trigger the free spins bonus.

Book Of Ba’Al Slot Bonuses and Features
Mini Bonus. The book symbol is also collected in this game, assuming you don’t land enough to trigger the main bonus. Once you collect 25, the mini bonus is triggered instead. Here, a random symbol is chosen to expand and you get a respin. If more of the symbol lands, it expands to fill the reel.
Free Spins Bonus. For this, you need 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols, each giving you 10 free spins but with a payout of 2x, 20x, or 200x as well, respectively. A symbol will then be chosen as an expanding symbol, meaning that whenever it lands during free spins, it will expand the fill the reel and payout, even if it’s not adjacent to other matching symbols. 3 more scatters will give you more free spins as well.
Book Of Ba’Al slot from Iron Dog Studios is yet another ‘book of’ slot, adding to the very long list of similar games from numerous developers. This one has the classic bonus you’d expect from a slot like this, but with the addition of the mini bonus, giving you a respin from time to time with expanding symbols. It’s a nice touch and certainly makes the base game a bit more interesting, but in my opinion it doesn’t do enough to stand out amongst the many other ‘book of’ slots out there. That coupled with the average RTP and pretty average payout potential and I just don’t see this game as being exciting enough to attract a large following.
