The Book of 1001 Nights slot is a tale you’ve heard many times before, with 10 paylines and 5 reels filled with beautiful symbols and a book that acts as both a free spins trigger and a wild.
As the name may give away, this Book of 1001 Nights mobile slot game by Leander gaming follows the trend of the many other Book of slots, except the slot theme here is set in a mysterious tent where the lady inviting you in could pay out big.
The Book of 1001 Nights game has a wild symbol that also acts as a scatter, triggering 10 free spins where one symbol will be chosen to act as an Expanding Scatter pay. If the lady is picked, and she expands to fill every payline, you’ll win 5,000x your bet.
The mechanics we’ve seen before, but the problem is the low RTP of 94.02%. And whilst we could excuse a low RTP for this high variance slot (like in Punk Toilet slot), there’s no excuse when you think so many ‘Book of’ slots that have come before it with much more generous payout rates.
We can’t fault the look of it. Based on the 1001 nights book where the trapped Scheherazade has to spin a tale each night to keep her alive from a despotic husband, it has a rich, luxurious, and exotic feel.
The full moon shines down upon a beautifully wrapped tent, where the billowing curtains invite you to spin 5×3 reels and 10 paylines. The high-paying symbols are the lady, the scarab, knife, and pipe, whilst A, K Q, J, 10 complete the paytable.
But the only symbols that really matter is the book itself, which is both the wild and the scatter. Get 3 anywhere on the reels and you’ll get to spin 10 free spins with one symbol chosen to act as an expanding scatter pay.
Which symbol it chooses will very much affect how much you enjoy playing this Book of 1001 Nights slot game. Get one of the high paying symbols, and see them line up for wins of over 1,000x your bet, and you’ll want Scheherazade to spin you a tale every night.
Which is the same win as the Book of Dead slot and the Book of Bob slot, and the Book of Oz video slot. See a pattern? All these mobile video slots with the same top win and the exact same mechanics.
The difference with this Leander slot game is that the RTP is a lot lower than any of the three mentioned above, or any of even the original Book of Ra review.
It makes it hard to recommend because we know there are alternatives out there that pay out big more often than Book of 1001 Nights.
Book of 1001 Nights is not a bad slot machine, it’s just not as impressive as we would have hoped, and the pretty eyes of the lady waiting in the tent does not make up for the poor numbers – including an average betting range of 0.20 to 20.
Still, the top win is enticing and it’s not a bad game per se. If you do decide to take a spin, make sure you play at a casino that provides you plenty of variation on this genre, so you can contrast, compare, and then swap around at your leisure.

Wild Scatter: The Book is both the wild and the scatter symbol. It can be used to replace other symbols over the 10 paylines to create a win, or 3 or more will trigger the free spins.
Free Spins and Expanding Scatter Pays: 3 scatters will trigger 10 free spins. At the beginning of the free spins, one symbol will be chosen to act like an expanding scatter pay. This means the symbol will expand to cover the reel and pay regardless of where is falls on the reels.
Scheherazade wows you with her elegance, but not quite with her tale, as the low RTP of 94.02% puts this 'Book of' slot way behind so many of the others.
On paper it has all the same illusions: 5,000x your bet max win, 10 paylines, scatters, wilds, and free spins with expanding scatter pays.
But if the mechanics are almost identical to the Book of Sheba slot or the Book of Ra Deluxe review, why would you play on a version that has a lower RTP and (therefore) a lower chance of paying out.
This Book of 1001 Nights slot by Leander Games is really for fans of the game studio only. If you've never heard of Leander, there's about a million other expanding scatter pay games that make it easier to win.
