Book of Kingdoms slot REVIEW
Book of Kingdoms ReviewBook of Kingdoms is the second Pragmatic Play (Reel Kingdom) book slot effort, and it plays out on 5 reels, 3 rows with 25 ways to win. In addition to the standard expanding symbol bonus round, you’ll also benefit from a Hold & Win Jackpot Respins feature in this game. The volatility is medium, leaning towards high, and non-jackpot wins up to 500x is possible here.
Unlike the sister game, Return of the Dead, which brought nothing new to the table except a somewhat higher RTP than usual, Book of Kingdom at least makes an attempt to stick out. The Respins Jackpot feature adds more balance to the gameplay, and the possibility of winning fixed jackpots up to 1,000x also adds a bit of extra excitement.
The lower-than-usual volatility might cater more to low-risk casual players than anything else, but the potential has suffered more than necessary in this cut-back also. The hatless, smiling hipster-adventurer does not really have the star-power and charisma to compete with the likes of John Hunter. If there is going to be a longer series based on this weirdo, for god’s sake give the poor man a proper hat next time.

Book of Kingdoms Features
In addition to the standard book slot bonus round, you will also benefit from a Hold & Win Jackpot Respins feature here. You need to land at least 5 silver cash coins on the same spin to trigger the Money Respins, and all triggering cash value coins become sticky on a new reel set.
You get 3 respins to start with, and all new coins that land become sticky also. The respins tally resets to 3 again for each coin you land, and only cash coins and blanks will land during the feature. You can also land jackpot coins however, and this means you win the corresponding Minor (30x), Major (100x) or Mega Jackpot of 1.000x your stake. The feature ends when you run out of “lives”, or when you fill the entire screen with nothing but cash coins.
The book symbol serves double duty as both the wild and the bonus scatter here. As a wild, it will step in for all regular symbols, but it holds no value of its own. As a scatter, you will win 1x or 20x when you land 3, or 4 anywhere in sight, and landing at least 3 book scatters triggers the free spins bonus round.
You get 5 free spins either way here, and a regular symbol will be chosen upfront as the special expanding symbol. This is a standard book slot bonus round in other words, and the expanded symbols don’t need to land on adjacent reels to win. The combined bonus round max win cap is set to 20,000x, and you win 5 new free spins by landing 3+ scatters during the feature. There is no upper limit as to how many retriggers you can get here.
The 200 Spins Book of Kingdoms Experience
The smiling explorer with no hat is back, although he does sport a nice Indiana Jones style fedora in the paytable. We thought Return of the Dead was a one-off, but it looks like Pragmatic (Reel Kingdom) is going to make a series with this somewhat out-of-place hipster-looking dude. Anyway, after plenty of teasers, we managed to trigger the bonus round at 0:54 in the 200 spins highlights video you can check out below.
Book of Kingdoms is less volatile than its sister game, Return of the Dead, and this is no straight-up copycat book slot, like the previous game was. The RTP has been lowered slightly here, but 96.69 % is still solid compared to many book slots. However, you will need to find a casino to play at which offers the highest RTP level, as Pragmatic games can be adjusted to lower payout percentages at the whim of the operators.
In addition to the regular “book of style” bonus round, you also get the Hold & Win Respins Jackpot feature here. This makes this copycat game somewhat more justifiable than Return of the Dead, although you’ll not find anything really new to see here either. The hatless, smiling main character still comes across as somewhat of a weirdo, but here he’s accompanied by a wizard, a woman and a monkey. That being said, the symbol values have been significantly reduced, and the max win potential is now 500x your stake instead of 5,000x.

Return of the Dead - is the more volatile sister game we’ve mentioned a few times, and it comes with a 5,000x potential. This is simply a standard book slot where nothing new or innovative has been added, but it comes with a higher-than-average RTP of 96.71 % (beware of RTP ranges, however).
Book of Ra deluxe - is an improved and beefed up version of the original classic, and the RTP has been increased by 3 % compared to the first game. The potential is now the standard 5,000x also, and this is really a nostalgic “back to the roots” must try for fans of the book slot series.
Legacy of Dead - is a very popular book slot version. It comes with the possibility of making all 9 of the regular symbols into expanding symbols in the bonus round. This is the big twist Play’n Go has brought to the table with this game, and it comes with high volatility and the standard 5,000x max win potential.
