Pragmatic Play – Book of Kingdoms – Free Slot Game

Book of Kingdoms is the second book slot from (Reel Kingdom) and plays on 5 reels, 3 rows with 25 ways to win. In addition to the standard bonus round with expanding symbols, this game also benefits from a Hold & Win Jackpot Respins feature. Volatility is medium, tending to high, and non-jackpot wins up to 500x are possible here.

Unlike its sister game Return of the Dead, which didn’t bring anything new except for a slightly higher RTP than usual, Book of Kingdom at least tries to stand out. The Respins jackpot feature adds more balance to the gameplay, and the possibility to win fixed jackpots up to 1,000 times also adds excitement.

The below-average volatility is perhaps more suited to low-risk casual players than anything else, but the potential has also suffered more than necessary from this cut. The hatless, smiling hipster adventurer doesn’t really have the star power or charisma to take on the likes of John Hunter. If there is to be a longer series on this madman, for heaven’s sake give the poor man a proper hat next time.

Bonus Features at Book of Kingdoms Slot

In addition to the standard bonus round for Book slots, you 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 money coins become sticky on a new set of reels.

You will initially get 3 respins, and any new coins that land will also become sticky. The number of respins is reset to 3 for each coin that lands, and only money coins and blanks land during the feature. However, you can also land jackpot coins. This means that you will win the corresponding minor (30x), major (100x) or mega jackpot of 1,000 times your bet. The feature ends when you run out of “lives” or when you fill the entire screen with only money coins.

The book symbol here serves as both a wild and a bonus scatter. As a wild, it will substitute for all regular symbols, but it has no value of its own. As a scatter, you win 1x or 20x if you land 3 or 4 in view. If you land at least 3 book scatters, the free spins bonus round is triggered.

In both cases, you will get 5 free spins and a regular symbol will be selected in advance as a special expanding symbol. In other words, this is a standard bonus round for book slots, and the expanding symbols don’t have to land on adjacent reels to bring profit. The maximum win cap for the combined bonus round is set at 20,000x. You win 5 new free spins by landing more than 3 scatters during the feature. There is no cap on the number of retriggers you can get here.

The 200 Spins Book of Kingdoms Experience

The smiling explorer without a hat is back, although he wears 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 doing a series with this somewhat out-of-place hipster type. Anyway, after many teasers, we managed to trigger the bonus round at 0:54 in the 200 spins highlight video that you can see below.

Rating Conclusion

Book of Kingdoms is less volatile than its sister game Return of the Dead, and this is not a direct 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 that offers the highest RTP level, as Pragmatic games can be adjusted at the whim of the operators to lower the payout ratios.

In addition to the regular book-slot style bonus round, you also get the Hold & Win Respins jackpot feature here. This makes this copycat game a bit more defensible than Return of the Dead, although you won’t find anything really new to see here either. The hatless, smiling main character still looks like a madman, but here he is accompanied by a wizard, a woman and a monkey. Apart from that, the symbol values have been significantly reduced and the maximum win potential is now 500 times your bet instead of 5,000 times.
