Book of Golden Sands (Pragmatic Play)

Book of Golden Sands (Pragmatic Play) slotThe Book-style is a genre that doesn’t seem to get old, and we have a new slot that borrows from this category. The Book of Golden Sands is the name of the new game that was recently released by Pragmatic Play.

Although the slot joins an already overcrowded category, we can expect something interesting, especially coming from a developer like Pragmatic Play.

Below are all the details about the Book of Golden Sands slot:

Game Set-Up

Book of Golden Sands offers a significantly large game area of 6x3 reels and up 729 ways to win.

The slot also comes with some excellent features that include wilds, scatters, retrigger, and free spins (with expanding symbols) among others.

Betting and Prizes

A real money wager will cost as low as $0.20 per spin. I’m happy to say that I had lots of fun with the slot’s betting range since it caters for all levels of players. The highest amount that you can put in a single spin is $100.

Book of Golden Sands offers an extremely good top payout, at least by Book-style standards. On a good day, this title can deliver payments of up to 10,000xs the stake.

As is common with slots that offer this level of payment, Book of Golden Sands is highly volatile with an RTP of 96.46%. However, the developer has offered several variants of RTP, so it is ideal that as a real money gamer, you go for a casino that offers the highest.

Book of Golden Sands Slot Features

A Wild logo is among the most obvious features of the slot. You will get it on reels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, where it serves as a replacement for other regular icons as you form winning combinations.

Additionally, you get a random multiplier (2x or 3x), and this will apply to all the wins that are formed via such symbols.

I’m always a huge fan of free spins, and Pragmatic Play has included a few in this slot. Up to 10 free spins can be triggered, and you will need at least 3 scatters present on the reels for this to happen.

While in this mode, expect to get a special expanding symbol, which is a clear indication that means that the Book of Golden Sands is a Book-style slot machine.

Once in the free spins mode, the special symbol expands and takes over the reels once a spinning round ends.

With at least 3 appearing on the reels, you get an opportunity to form winning combos on all the available lines (even where the symbols are not adjacent).

Book of Golden Sands allows you to collect the expanded symbols, and the beauty of it is that these reels can enlarge for upcoming expansions.

If you manage to retrigger the free spins, you get an extra 10 free rounds, and these will come with the same expanding icon.

Theme & Design

Since this slot borrows part of its images from Ancient Egypt’s legends, don’t expect an entirely original design.

Still, I find the graphics and the design quite enjoyable, with very good quality. Lower value symbols come in the images of pendants that have Ankh, the Eye of Ra, Lotus, Scarab, and snail-like symbols.

For the high-value symbols, we get to work with images of Horus, Scarabs, Lotus Gems, Cleopatra, Snake, and the Pharaoh.


For the Book category, I can say that this is one of the decent slot machines that I have come across. Book of Golden Sands offers better payments than the average slot in this genre, and I really enjoyed its extra mechanics.

Overall, it’s a slot machine worth checking out, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
