Where to play
Design & Symbols
Origins of Lilith, released on 30th March 2020 is Israeli developer Spinomenal’s second slot featuring the Devil Woman. The first, Lilith’s Passion, was released back in April 2018 and from playing the two games side by side, it seems that although there are certain similarities, that Origins of Lilith is more a sequel (or prequel, if the title is anything to go by) than a clone.
The design, artwork, and soundtrack are all very much in keeping with the demonic theme as the scene is set at what appears to be the gateway to hell. The stone entrance gives way to fiery pit below the gameboard. Above the gameboard is an imposing stone statue of Baphomet, the Demon goat. The gameboard floats above the fire pit suspended on both sides by chains attached to the entrance. The board is framed by steel poles with the game’s logo above the middle reels. The reels are a slightly translucent black and contain nine regular and three special symbols. The soundtrack is suitable hellish, and sounds remarkably similar to that of Lilith’s Passion, full of ominous, dark tones and wailing strings and played in a minor key.
Low value symbols are the standard royal playing card values 10-A. High value symbols are a green potion bottle, a book of satanic spells, a goblet, and a skull with a red blindfold. The skull is the most valuable regular symbol, with 10 on a payline (all double symbols) awarding 12x the bet size. The full reel wild is Lilth, and there are two scatter symbols; a red apple which triggers the bonus game, and a free spins scatter. All symbols come stacked and all regular symbols can appear as single, or double symbols. Scatter symbols only appear in the base game.

- Buy Feature
In both the base game and free spins round the stacked wilds feature activates after any random spin. The reels go dark and the reels catch fire. A stacked wild is placed on each reel which often leads to a winning spin, often a sizeable one.
Only Double Symbols
Once again, this feature occurs in both the base game and free spins and activates in much the same way as stacked wilds. The title of the feature kind of gives it away, the resultant spin only contains double symbols, potentially maximising any win.
3 apple scatters takes you to a new gameboard in which the spinning reels either deliver apple symbols, blanks, or +1 spin symbols. Three spins are issued, and the idea is to land as many apples on the board as possible. Each apple moves you higher up the win multiplier meter to the left of the board, while each +1 spin symbol adds another spin to the round. The lowest multiplier is 3x the bet size, all the way up to 500x the bet size.
3 free spin scatters takes you to the free spins wheel screen. The free spins wheel is made of an inner and outer wheel, both of which rotate when you spin the wheel. The outer wheel determines the number of free spins you’re awarded (from 10-40 free spins), and the inner wheel determines which of the four higher paying symbols will only occur as a double symbol throughout the free spins round. Furthermore, the random features (Stacked Wilds, and Only Double Symbols) are more likely to trigger during free spins than regular play.
Origin’s of Lilith also offers players (depending on the jurisdiction) the opportunity to buy straight into the free spins round at a cost of 38x your chosen bet size.

Our Thoughts on Origins of Lilith
Origins of Lilith is a well-constructed game by Spinomenal. In terms of features, there are plenty to get your teeth into. Although the format is similar to Lilith’s Passion (i.e. a bonus round, a free spins round, and a couple of randomly activated features) they are all slightly different. It can be entertaining enough, but there are a few gripes. Firstly, it’s quite difficult to figure out what you’ve won with the bet sizing. I prefer slots which show the cash values on the paytable. If there isn’t there should at least be an option to spin for €1 or €10 so that the wins are easily convertible. As it is, it is a bit of a mission to figure out how you won what you won, especially when double and single symbols together form part of the win. Also, the wins are quite low, and the potential isn’t fantastic. As such Origins of Lilith might bore some of the more trigger-happy players.
It’s not that Origins of Lilith is a particularly bad game, and it is certainly more original than last month’s Book of Rebirth. However, its just not a particularly good game either.
