Casino content developer, Realistic Games has given its hit game Book of Charms a seasonal makeover with the release of Book of Charms Christmas Edition.
The festive next chapter in the Book of series adds a winter aesthetic to the iconic reels, with snowy horseshoes, coins and clover adorning the gameboard which is played across 10 paylines.
Wild symbols boost win potential by x2 and are joined by book wilds that further amplify the likelihood of forming a win in a game that boasts multiple opportunities for players to do so.
The big draw of the original hit Book of Charms, its two exciting bonus features, was shortlisted for the prestigious CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards Game Mechanic of the Year, and it too returns in this Christmas edition.
The first is triggered by landing three or more Yellow Orb scatters, which awards 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier in play. The second offers an expanding symbol mechanic across up to 10 free spins.
Unwrapping even more fun, each bonus round can be triggered while playing through the other, offering exciting and rewarding gameplay. Plus, the bonus symbol of the yellow orb feature can become the expanding symbol in the book bonus potentially awarding up to 165 free spins.
Featuring festive visuals and exciting bonus mechanics whilst building upon an existing fan favourite title, Book of Charms Christmas Edition adds to the runaway success of its predecessor and exemplifies the holiday spirit. It follows other recent notable Realistic Games hits including Book of Midas, Destination Atlantis and Shinobi Moon.
Alice Timson, Head of Commercial at Realistic Games, said: “Book of Charms Christmas Edition is a sumptuous seasonal slot which offers multifaceted, compelling gameplay that can be enjoyed all year round.
“Recognised by our industry peers and players alike, the unique double bonus round has been a revelation and makes its return to offer incredible win potential.
“The upgraded visuals on show add an extra level of depth to an already mechanical-rich title and we are thrilled at the prospect of what rewards players unwrap.”
BF Games introduces new mechanic in latest release Megacity
BF Games, the dynamic slot development studio, is celebrating the launch of a new jackpot mechanic in its cyberpunk-inspired release Megacity.
Zap!Pots makes its debut in the electrifying new slot, paving the way for mega wins. The Zap! symbols unlock the game’s bonus round, with up to x2,000 jackpot awarded either through collecting enough Zap! icons during base game or by unlocking levels in the Free Games.
Three Scatter symbols trigger three Free Games which offer eight unlockable levels with opportunities to win big. Starting with a 5×3 reel size and 50 paylines in the bonus round, additional rows and paylines can be uncovered by landing the defined number of Zap! Symbols on the reels. If the specific number is not collected, the Free Game round ends.
For those who want to embrace the excitement of city life, the Buy Feature allows three Free Games to be purchased, for 40x the base bet. The Wild substitutes for all other symbols expect the Scatter and Zap! Symbols.
This energetic release, with a electric soundtrack and atmospheric nightscape, further showcases BF Games’ expertise, and follows shortly after the studio announced the launch of its game aggregator, BF HUB.
Piotr Saluda, Product Owner at BF Games, said: “At BF Games, we strive to continually offer our players more, enhancing our creative slots and developing new ways to keep them engaged.
“Nothing showcases this commitment quite like Megacity, which really has it all, including a new and exciting mechanic. Just like the city can be an assault on the senses, Megacity’s vibrant graphics, fun mechanics, and multiple jackpot levels make this game one of our most thrilling yet.”

International ESG rating upgrade for NOVOMATIC
In this year’s ISS ESG sustainability rating, the international gaming technology group NOVOMATIC was upgraded, making it one of the top performers in the electronics industry.
ISS ESG (Institutional Shareholder Services Inc.), a rating agency specializing in sustainability, is one of the world’s three leading ESG rating agencies, along with Sustainalytics and Moody’s ESG Solutions. The assessment of a company’s environmental, economic and social performance as part of the Corporate Rating is based on approximately 100 industry-specific indicators. ISS ESG ensures that the ratings remain current through regular updates.
In October 2023, ISS ESG raised NOVOMATIC AG’s rating to “C” for the first time, placing the company in the top 30% of the electronics industry. With this development, NOVOMATIC joins the ranks of global industry leaders such as Apple, Dell and HP.
NOVOMATIC has improved particularly in the areas of “Employees and suppliers”, “Society and product responsibility” and “Corporate governance and business ethics”. ESG is an integral part of NOVOMATIC AG’s corporate strategy as the company strives for continuous improvement as part of its comprehensive sustainability program.
“As an international gaming technology group, we have always assumed social responsibility and act conscientiously and transparently in all areas of our business,” emphasizes NOVOMATIC Executive Board Member Ryszard Presch. Fellow Board Member Johannes Gratzl adds: “We are delighted that our extensive commitment to sustainability has now been recognized by ISS ESG with a top rating. With this rating, we have made a great leap forward, and our level of transparency is now at the highest level. We are also well above the industry average when it comes to the core issue of working conditions and standards,” says Gratzl.
NOVOMATIC has already received many important awards and top ratings for its Group-wide commitment to sustainability, including most recently PwC’s ESG Ranking 2023, in which the company emerged as the industry winner.
