Not many might approve of bull fighting, but the sport has a large number of fans. Bally has released Books & Bulls for online slots players who are enthusiastic about bull fighting. The slot is all about a brave bull fighter who doesn't hesitate to face and fight enraged bulls while spectators watch, scream, and cheer.
The slot has five reels, three rows, and ten paylines. The reels are populated with symbols of books, raging bulls, maidens, toreros, medals, and high-value card symbols. To get started, you have to first active the number of paylines you would like to play, choose from coin values ranging from 0.01 to 0.60. If you are feeling as brave as the torero, you can click on the Max Bet button to place the maximum bet of 6.00 that the slot permits. The next step is to just click on the Spin button to set the reels spinning.
You can use the slot's Auto button to spin the reels automatically for as long as you wish. Whenever you feel like stopping the reels from spinning automatically, you only have to click on the Auto Off button.
The slot has a generous fixed payout structure along with a few bonus features that can make you richer. A combination of five Torero symbols along an active payline fetches the top fixed jackpot of 1,500 coins. Five book or bull scatter symbols anywhere on the reels fetch a prize of 1,200 coins. The other thematic symbols fetch prizes ranging from 600 coins to 3.00 coins. You can win smaller prizes for landing combinations of five high-value card symbols.
The slot has two scatter symbols in the form of the book scatter and the bull scatter. Both symbols are associated with the same payout structure. If you land five book or bull symbols anywhere on the game reels, you can take home a fixed jackpot of 1,200 coins. These payouts reduce to 120 coins for four bull or book scatters and 12 coins for three bull or book scatters.
Each type of scatter symbol can activate a different set of free spins, as follows:
You will receive 10 free spins for landing at least three book symbols anywhere on the reels. You can activate more free spins during the free spins bonus round. Before the free spins round, a symbol will be selected at random to serve as the bonus symbol. However, the book symbol will not be selected.
You will receive 10 free games if you land three bull symbols along an active payline. However, you will not be able to re-activate this feature during the free spins round. To compensate for this, the Torero wild symbol turns sticky throughout the free spins bonus round and increases your chances of winning extra payouts.
If you are brave enough to click on the optional gamble feature, which gets activated at the end of every winning spin, you can choose from two gamble games, as follows:
You have to click on the Gamble button, which has the cards symbol in order to play this game. You have to correctly guess the color of the card that will be displayed on the screen. If your guess matches the color of the card drawn by the game software, your winnings will be doubled. If not, you will lose all your winnings and will be taken back to the main game.
If you click on the Gamble button with the ladder symbol, you will be taken to the ladder gamble game. You have to select one of the steps in order to play this game. If the game software highlights the rung above yours, your winnings will be doubled. If the rung below yours gets highlighted, you will lose your winnings.
The gamble feature gets activated only in case of smaller wins. If you are playing the game in auto mode, you will not be able to activate the gamble feature.
You can play Books & Bulls on the move as it is written in HTML5, which makes it compatible with a wide range of smartphones and tablets.

Bally's Books & Bulls slot is based on the unique theme of bull fighting, but as a slots game, it has nothing much to get excited about. The fixed payouts are not as high as players would like, but there is a wild that turns into a fixed wild during the free spins round. There are also two scatter symbols that can activate two separate sets of free spins. You can win quite a bit of extra money because of these bonus features.
We recommend that you spin the reels of Books & Bulls slot especially if you are an intermediate slots player who gets overwhelmed with feature-rich slots that overflow with bonus features.
