A classic cartoon landscape provides a nostalgic background to Book of Time. The brass-band music with a pumping trombone adds to the vintage cartoon theme of Canny the Can. In contrast, the reels contain somewhat abstract symbols of quirky design, reminiscent of the game’s sibling, Stack ‘Em. A stately home plays background to the It’s a Classic! bonus game, which sees the debut of an owl character joining the duo, and the What Time Is It? bonus draws classical inspiration with pencil-mark graphics of sculptures after entering a mysterious swirling portal.

Canny The Can & Book of Time Slot – Base Game

The pay symbols start at the low end with 10, J, Q, K and A, awarding from 5x to 15x your bet for five on a pay line. Symbols of a magic wand, a magician’s hat, a dead bird, a chopped snake head, and Canny’s friend, Mona the Mouse, follow. And matching five-of-a-kind awards from 50x to 250x your bet.

A book represents the wild scatter symbol, which substitutes all other symbols and will pay 250x bet for five on a pay line. Land three or more books on a spin to trigger the It’s a Classic! bonus game. A smiling clock face appears as the Clock Man scatter symbol, and landing three on a spin awards the What Time Is It? bonus. A special X symbol features in the What Time Is It? bonus as the Clock Activator symbol, explained below under Slot Features.

Alongside Nolimit City, Hacksaw Gaming currently holds dominion over extremely volatile slots. Book of Time has a 4 out of 5 volatility rating from the studio, and a recent release, Break Bones, wears a rare medium volatility badge, not often entertained by the developers. Let’s take Book of Time for a spin and see if it meets the usual Hacksaw expectations.

Your basic spin of Book of Time will see you matching three or more symbols in succession, from left to right along pay lines, for a win. Book scatter symbols act as wilds, substituting for other pay symbols in winning combinations. The base game has no random features and will begin a hunt to trigger one of two bonus rounds.

Land three or more book scatters on a spin to trigger the It’s a Classic! bonus game. The round is your typical ‘book’ style bonus game that randomly selects a symbol from the pay table to be used as a special expanding symbol for the bonus. Three, four, or five scatters award 10, 15 and 20 free spins with one, two or three special expanding symbols, respectively.

The chosen expanding symbol/s are framed in gold on the reels for the event, and landing three or more on three or more separate reels will cause them to expand, fill each reel with symbols, and pay as scatter pays, e.g. three full reels awards three of a kind across all pay lines. More than one special expanding symbol win will perform the action in turn. You can land a further three or more scatter symbols during the bonus to activate another special expanding symbol and an extra five free spins.

Hit three Clock Man scatters to activate the What Time Is It? bonus. The round comes with 10 free spins and features a Clock Activator symbol represented by an X. Above reels 2, 3 and 4 sit three regular clock faces that spin a number from 1 to 12 with each free spin. When a Clock Activator symbol lands on reels 2, 3 or 4, wild multiplier symbols spread downward from the clock to meet and cover the Clock Activator symbols. Each wild multiplier will bear the value determined by the clock face spin above its reel. More than one wild multiplier in a win acts multiplicatively.

Final Verdict

Book of Time is a clash of abstract and vintage cartoon graphics, as one might expect from a time-travelling can and its mouse sidekick. The base game is typically Hacksaw and deliberately minimalist by design, providing a laser-focused hunt for the bonus games. It’s a Classic! does what it says on the tin and provides your typical ‘book’ type bonus with special expanding symbols and scatter pays.

The What Time Is It? game is where Book of Time sticks to the popular multiplying mayhem Hacksaw Gaming fans, and particularly fans of the brilliant Stack ‘Em bonus round, will feel at home. Book of Time comes with mass appeal, incorporating a hugely popular book-style bonus game, partnered with an entertainingly simple multiplying affair for a release that not only the Hacksaw faithful should enjoy.
