Where To Play Book of Adventure Super Stake
We’ve seen hundreds of “Book Of” slot games released in the last few years – all following the hugely popular format, made famous in games like Play’n Go’s Book of Dead and Novomatic’s Book of Ra Deluxe. Book of Adventure Super Stake is a new slot from Stakelogic that uses the “Book of” mechanic, and, while it’s nothing I’ve not seen before, there is a nifty little addition that varies up the gameplay and offers something a bit new.
In this Book of Adventure Super Stake slot review, I’m going to be giving you an honest, in-depth and impartial look at what the game has to offer – and I’ll let you know whether I think it’s a slot you should consider playing or not. To begin, I’ll show you how to actually play Book of Adventure Super Stake.
How To Play
Book of Adventure Super Stake, like most of Stakelogic’s slots, has a fairly complex user-interface at first – and I’ll admit, it can take a little bit of getting used to. To select your stake, you’ll need to scroll through to bet size options, in the bottom left-hand-corner of the screen; simple enough.
However, on the right-hand-side of the screen you’ll see a plethora of in-game options which can make things a little confusing to navigate at first. At the top, there’s a hamburger menu, and here, you’ll be able to open up the game’s paytable, rules, and more. Below that is a cog wheel, which opens the settings – here, you can toggle the volume on/off, and adjust a couple of other settings.
There’s also an autoplay function in Book of Adventure Super Stake which allows you to set up to 1,000 spins (or 100, if you’re in the UK) to play-out automatically. This prevents you from having to manually press the “spin” button each time you want to spin the reels. Once you’ve selected the stake size you’re happy with, simply hit the main spin button, and you’ll be able to get started right away!
Symbols and Payouts
Like most games built around a “Book of” mechanic, Book of Adventure Super Stake uses playing card values, including 10, jack, queen, king, and ace to represent the lower-paying symbols. These aren’t worth much, awarding payouts of up to 15X your stake for forming a 5-of-a-kind combo.
The game’s higher-paying symbols are, unfortunately, essentially ripped off from Play’n Go’s Book of Dead; you’ll see the Pharaoh, the Anubis, and, the highest-value symbol, the Explorer. Landing a 5-of-a-kind of the Explorer symbol during the base-game awards a payout worth 500X your stake, while other premiums vary between 50-150X your stake.
While there’s one main bonus round in Book of Adventure Super Stake, there’s a couple of other mini-features and concepts I’m going to be talking about – and it’s all covered below, so keep reading to learn more!
Super Stake Option
During the base-game, you have the option of toggling the “Super Stake” mode to on. Doing so doubles your stake – but when this mode is activated, the chances of the bonus round landing are doubled. According to Stakelogic, with the Super Stake feature activated in Book of Adventure Super Stake, the chances of the main bonus round – covered below – landing, are roughly one in 50.
Triggering the main free-spins bonus round requires you to land 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view. Doing so will award you with 10 free spins, and before the spins play out, one of the game’s symbols is chosen at random to become a special expanding symbol.
For the duration of the bonus round, landing three or more (if the chosen symbol is a Royal) or two or more if it’s a higher-paying symbol will cause them to expand, covering the entire reel they landed on, and paying, regardless of what reels they land on. For example, if the Ace was chosen as your expanding symbol and three Ace symbols landed on reels 2, 4 and 5, you’d be awarded a payout worth 10X your bet – their position on the reels is irrelevant.
Like most other Book of games, Book of Adventure Super Stake also allows you to re-trigger the bonus round; this is achieved by landing another 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view during the feature, and doing so awards you with an additional 10 free spins. There is no limit on the number of free spins you can be awarded.
I’m used to seeing game developers build gamble features into their slots, and Stakelogic is no exception – they’ve chosen to add one into Book of Adventure Super Stake, too. After any win, you have the option, if you choose, to try and gamble your win. This takes the form of a simple card game, where you simply need to try and guess the colour of the next playing card (to double your win), or guess the suit of the next playing card (to quadruple your win.)
Jackpot and How To Win
Like many of its predecessors, Book of Adventure Super Stake offers a maximum win of 5,000X your stake on a single spin – and while it’s nowhere near the maximum win caps we’re seeing from game developers like Relax Gaming and NetEnt, it’s not bad, as it generally the “industry standard” for this type of game.
Whilst I never got near the maximum jackpot while testing the slot for this review, I did manage one “Insane Win” during the free spins round.
In terms of actually unlocking that 5,000X maximum win, you’ll need to do three things. First, you’ll need to trigger the free-spins feature as we saw above. Secondly, you’ll need the highest-paying symbol to be chosen as the special expanding symbol. Finally, you’ll then need to land five of the higher-paying symbols in order to fill the screen – and, upon doing so, you’ll be awarded the game’s jackpot of 5,000X your bet.
Unfortunately, Stakelogic has a long way to go when it comes to the actual software of their games. Take the user-interface, for example; while it does what it needs to do, it just looks outdated – and this isn’t a particularly good start, especially when the game developer is trying to compete against some of the biggest names in the iGaming business.
The gameplay is a little bit clunky at times – and the reels seem to spin a bit weirdly, even when playing the game on a perfect internet connection and without any other games or tabs open.
When it comes to mobile gameplay, Book of Adventure Super Stake is mobile-optimized – it’s built using HTML5 technology – but again, I feel as though the gameplay experience is nowhere near the levels we’re seeing from some of the bigger, better-known software providers in the industry, and I feel it’s one of the areas where Stakelogic really let themselves down.
Bad news aside, Book of Adventure Super Stake is playable from mobile devices – and I was able to spin the reels from my phone and tablet. Just don’t expect the most streamlined gaming experience you’ve ever seen!
While I’m always a little bit skeptical of slots where you’re able to select a “Super Stake” option, Book of Adventure Super Stake seems to actually do a pretty good job of ensuring that you, the player, gets a decent ROI for doing so. According to the game developer, activating the Super Stake option means you can expect to see the bonus landing once in every 50 spins, or so.
Of course, this means that the regular bonus round lands, on average, once in every 100 spins – so it’s unlikely that it’s going to carry as much of the game’s RTP as we may be used to seeing in other “Book Of” games, so just bear in mind that while triggering the bonus round may be much easier – the average bonus round payout is likely to be lower than other games.
One of my main gripes with Book of Adventure Super Stake – like pretty much all of Stakelogic’s slots – is that the software provider just hasn’t quite nailed the software side of things.
Sure, Book of Adventure Super Stake looks good, and the game’s animations and sound effects fit the gameplay well – but the actual user-interface is a bit cluttered, and the entire game itself just feels a bit laggy at the best of times. As I mentioned, this seems to be an issue with Stakelogic in general – when pitted against the likes of mainstream game developers like NetEnt and Play’n Go, their game infrastructure just isn’t quite there yet.
That being said, Book of Adventure Super Stake is a decent effort – and I do like the fact that it offers the Super Stake option as it makes it much easier to actually trigger the free-spins bonus round. Unfortunately, however, aside from that, Book of Adventure Super Stake doesn’t really offer anything else in terms of creativity – and it’s almost certainly just going to fall into yet another of the “Book of” releases we see every year from software providers.
