Book of Kings (Playtech)
Book of Kings is an addition to the long list of slot games with an Ancient Egypt-theme. For this slot, Playtech has borrowed some inspiration from the Book of Ra slot as is evidenced by the present features and gameplay.
However, the version by Playtech seems to offer much better payments, and I will share that later on in this review:
Among the features present are the triggering Book wilds and scatters. Book of Kings is a highly volatile game, but it also comes with a decent RTP of 96.50%.
Betting and Prizes
Wagers on Book of Kings will start from a low of $0.10 to a high of $200 per spin. Although it uses the mechanism of a Book-style, this slot game has massive potential.
Most of the slots within this category do not go beyond 5,000x the stake even when using the free spins.
However, the Book of Kings can boost the winnings to as many as three times when using the right multipliers.
Here, we are talking of the potential to deliver winnings of up to 15,000x the stake. Additionally, Playtech offers Power Play progressive jackpots on this slot.
Book of Kings Slot Features
Book of Kings may look like a replica of the original Book-style games. However, the developer has tried to do things differently as we are about to discover.
Book of Kings comes with two different wild/scatter symbols. The first one has the image of the Book and will deliver payouts (up to 200 x stake) any time it lands as scatters.
The second one is the Snake wild/scatter, this one can deliver wins as a scatter, and you can also use it to substitute the regular symbols.
To enjoy some free spins, you will need to land at least 3 scatter symbols on the reels. This will award you with 10 free spins.
Alternatively, you can get Snakes plus at least 3 Books, and all these should appear at the same time. This one is a better version since it will come with a 3x multiplier in addition to the 10 free spins.
Theme & Design
There is nothing so special about the theme as it’s the usual Ancient Egypt- inspired design.
Among its symbols are the Books, Horus, Snakes, Tutankhamen, Female adventurers, Eye of Ra, and the five Royals that represent the low-value symbols.
We can also see some pyramids and a desert in the background, and these are the usual items found on other slots with this theme.
This means that it’s a little challenging to find any originality on this slot.
If you love the Ancient theme, then you can give Book of Kings a try. The slot does very well when it comes to delivering top payouts, and although it’s a highly volatile game, it’s decent RTP helps to cushion you from massive losses.
