Böb, or 'Böb: The Epic Viking Quest for the Sword of Tullemutt' to give this game its full title, is a 5-reel, fixed 25-pay line online slots game. It has been developed by those 'king of slots' NetEnt exclusively for Come On! Casino. Böb is your hero in this game, and you join him on his quest to obtain his pride and joy – the Sword of Tullemutt. I mean, come on, who wouldn't want the Sword of Tullemutt? Böb – whom seems to have been separated at birth from Asterisk the Gaul – is joined in his quest and on the reels by various aspects of viking life, namely horned helmets (even though pedants will happily inform you that vikings did not wear horned helmets), axes, shields and longboats. To keep things traditional, playing card values ten through to ace are added to the reels as well.
All twenty-five possible pay lines are in play at all times. You can select your coin size from 0.01 to 0.50, and your bet level from one to four. Your final wager is your coin size multiplied by your bet level multiplied by twenty-five. To score a win, you need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence on a pay line from the left-hand reel onwards. When you're ready to join Böb on his epic quest, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts start at x2 for two tens or jacks, and rise all the way to a valhalla-sent 500x for five viking helmets.
The word 'wild' acts as the wild symbol in this game, and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter and bonus symbols.
The longboat symbol acts as the scatter. You need to land two or more scatters anywhere on the reels to win a cash amount. If you land three or more scatters you earn yourself ten free spins. During your free spins, all wins you land are tripled in value.
A 'Böb selfie' acts as the bonus symbol. You need to land a bonus symbol on each of the three left-hand reels on a pay line in order to play the bonus game. In this game Böb gets to smash a selection of Norse runes with his legendary sword in order to obtain cash prizes. You can keep smashing until you uncover a red bar, at which point the bonus round ends and you cash-in all the monetary prizes you've amassed.
It has to be said that despite the lovely graphics used in this game, this is quite a mundane affair by NetEnt's standards. It's little more than a basic, old-fashioned slot. The only thing we can recommend about this slot is the high return-to-player of 98 percent, which makes this game a highly-beneficial one to play – most slots have RTPs that hover around the 95 to 97 percent mark, and some are even lower.
Sadly, that's the only reason we think you'd want to sign up with Böb on his epic quest, although 'epic' is stretching things a bit.
