Book of Sam - GAME REVIEW

7.1 / 10

A team of creative minds, ELK Studios never fail to capture our hearts and imaginations with their unique characters. From witty quips to amiable expressions, these personas help shape a selection of truly remarkable games!

Sam, Sandra and Maggie are the family of trolls that love to have a great time in ELK’s neon-lit slots. With their first two releases not making as much impact as older series such as Nitropolis’ pups or Kane with Gold Slots, it looks like this dynamic trio is ready for something new – introducing Book Of Sam! This ‘Book of’-style slot has been successfully blended by the team at ELK using both modern developments and classic elements; guaranteeing an entertaining experience every spin.

Sam and his family may not have gone on a time-travelling adventure or an Egyptian vacation, but the new video game Book of Sam transports them to a magical world that looks just like Egypt! With allusions to Las Vegas as well, this “Sam Vegas” destination has recreated every detail – from its ‘Welcome to Sam Vegas’ sign down through ‘Sandras Palace’. Prepare yourself for an epic journey across ancient sands.

Book of Sam packs a punch with its high volatility and theoretical return value of 94%. The game is loaded with innovative features, but the grid setup remains classic; five reels interspersed across three rows offer 10 paylines to determine your destiny.

Players have the chance to reap 10,000 times their original wager, making this game’s rewards even better.


Regular wins start on the leftmost reel and pay out from left-to-right across consecutive reels.

Score yourself five of a kind wins and your bet will multiply from 5 – 500 times depending on which set of characters you have collected in your card deck.

The Book of Sam brings a special symbol – the book itself, which can be wild or scatter.

Electric Treats

Our favorite troll family will cause a flurry of excitement with Electric Treats! Each win from one of these lovable characters brings an extra layer of joy, waiting for players both in the base and bonus game.

  • Sam: If you land two or more Sam tiles on a spin, the electrifying Sam Electric Treat is yours. You’ll get respins with an exciting sticky book symbol – and if this happens in the bonus round, that special little symbol turns into a supercharged expanding wild.
  • Sandra: Win on two or more Sandra tiles and you’ll be rewarded with respins of multipliers.
  • Maggie: Two or more of her tiles will trigger a reward. Low pays and cats vanish from view while expanding symbols remain in place.

Free Spins

Land 3, 4 or 5 book scatters in normal mode to receive 8 bonus spins with the chance for your pay symbols to expand. Should at least two high-pay or three low-pay expanding symbols appear on individual reels then they will spread out and cover every position – paying all ways regardless of where they are.

If 3 or more book symbols appear, you’ll earn extra free spins plus up to 5 expanding wilds. Sandra’s multiplier will stay active throughout the bonus round as long as an Electric Treat is in play – but it gets even better when Sam activates; then the book symbol becomes a powerful expanding wild too!


When you press the X-iter button, you’ll enter the feature buy mode. The game presents you with a variety of options to choose from that can give your experience a boost.

  • Bonus Hunt: 2 x the bet: Double your chance of triggering the bonus game.
  • Electric Treat: 10 x the bet: One spin with a guaranteed electric treat.
  • Expanding Symbols: 50 x the bet: One spin with all expanding symbols.
  • Bonus Game: 100 x the bet: Guaranteed entry to the bonus game.
  • Super Bonus Game: 500 x the bet: Guaranteed entry to the bonus game with all expanding symbols.
