Check out brand new slot game review for “Book Of Time” from Hacksaw Gaming

Book Of Time” is a volatile and exciting twist on a classic book slot game style, Its catchy theme tune and familiar loveable characters make this hot new release a must-play for both Hacksaw Gaming fans and avid slot players.

Hacksaw Gaming is the first slot provider to come to mind when the word volatile is used. Having released games like Wanted: Dead or a Wild, Hand of Anubis, and most recently Pug life, Hacksaw has a way of getting players invested in the chase for those giant win screens.

The Malta-based company does not do much “following” when it comes to slot innovation, so I was surprised to see a “book” game coming out. I was not surprised, however, to see them do it with flair and extra bells and whistles. Book Style games have been around for a long time in the online slotsverse. They all share a similar bonus style in which one or multiple special symbols are selected and expand when landing during the free spins.

Canny the Can, an original character created by Hacksaw in its infancy, makes his third appearance in The Book of Time. Continuing his legacy of 1950s cartoon-inspired art and music, Canny and his little mouse friend venture into a time travel themed book game. Low-paying symbols go from 10-A and premiums include favorites like the dead crow and Mr. Mouse. The Scatter symbol is a book and also acts as a wild. There is a second non-wild scatter symbol in the form of a smiling clock. The base game can reach up to 250x your bet with a full line of the top symbol

Bonus Rounds

It’s a Classic!

Landing 3–5 books awards the “It’s a Classic!” bonus round. This bonus is a standard book bonus with up to 3 special expanding symbols chosen at random. Each level of this bonus can be purchased for 100x, 200x and 400x your bet respectively.

  • 3 books award 10 free spins and 1 symbol
  • 4 books award 15 free spins and 2 symbols
  • 5 books award 20 free spins and 3 symbols

What Time is it?

Landing the 3 smiling clocks on the reels awards the “What Time is it?” bonus. This bonus takes the standard “book” free spins to a new level of volatility. Instead of having a random symbol selected to expand and pay, a new “X” symbol is added to the middle 3 reels and a clock is placed at the top of each. With each spin the single clock hand spins and any “X” that lands cause wilds with multipliers equal to the time (up to 12x) to cascade down from the top of the reel down to the “X” symbol. More than one multiplier wild in a win line will combine (additively) for a possible total multiplier of 36x. Players can buy their way into this feature for 200x their bet.

Bonus Hunt FeatureSpins

Players can make the chance of landing a bonus 4 times more likely by choosing these feature spins. The cost is 3x the base cost of the spin.


Hacksaw Gaming likes to push for 1 new slot each month. This extended dev time, compared to other providers, really shows through with the quality and unique features that are included in each game. Canny the Can and the Book of Time is a prime example of what Hacksaw is capable of. The simplicity of a book game paired with a little extra flair makes for a whole new experience that feels fresh even on the classic style. Not to mention, Canny and Mr. Mouse are probably some of my favorite reoccurring slot characters out there.

Score: 8.5/10 — “We love Canny the Can”

  • A fun new spin on Book games in the What Time is it? Feature
  • 1950s cartoon aesthetic is always enjoyable
  • Try dancing like canny while playing and tell me you don’t smile
