The Book of Golden Sands slot is a highly volatile game by Pragmatic Play that promises 10,000x your bet thanks to expanding scatter pays and expanding ways to win.
You have a lush ancient Egyptian game theme where Cleopatra and the golden Pharaoh rule the six reels, you have wild symbols, and you have expanding scatter pays in the free spins. But that’s where the similarity end.
The Book of Golden Sands slot has 6×3 reels with 729 winning ways, where the wild has 2x or 3x multiplier and in the free spins, the expanding scatter pay increases the ways to win, unlocking an even bigger top win.
The minimum bet is set a little higher at 0.20 a spin, but you do get a decent 96.46% RTP and that highly volatile gameplay that makes this series of real money slots so very popular. But how likely are you to get that top win?
You get two special symbols: the wild symbol with a 2x or 3x multiplier and the scatter. This is important as the wild can help improve what is otherwise a very middle-of-the-road paytable.
The wild helps keep you going in the base game until you can hit 3 scatters and trigger 10 free spins. One symbol from the paytable is now chosen to expand over the whole reel and pay like a scatter – they don’t have to sit left to right from reel 1 to get you a win.
More importantly, the next time you get an expanding scatter pay win on that reel, the symbol number will increase from 3 to 4 symbols high, giving you more ways to win. Think of it as the split symbols in mobile slot games like the Punk Toilet slot or the X Way Hoarder xSplit review.
You can get 10 symbols high on all 6 reels with expanding scatter pays, allowing you to hit that 10,000x your bet max win with the Pharoah. It’s exciting to watch every win count, big or small.
But once you fall in love with these slot machines, you’ll soon start seeking more complex games with those high-paying high-win features that offer more excitement.
For those times, open up the Book of Golden Sands slot on your favourite Pragmatic Play casinos and enjoy progressively bigger ways to win and a highly volatile game with a huge top win of 10,000x your bet.

Wild: The wild appears on reels 2-6 only and has a 2x or 3x multiplier applied to any win.
Scatter and Free Spins: Hit 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reel, and you'll trigger 10 free spins. One random symbol is selected to pay as an expanding scatter pay. In other words, the symbols expand to cover the reel and pay regardless of where it lands on the reels.
However, each time you get a win on the reel, that win is collected, and the next time you have one more symbol on the ways to win. Potentially you can one-up 10 ways to win on all 6 reels.
You can retrigger the free spins by getting 3 or more scatters during the bonus.
Buy Free Spins: You can buy entry into the free spin bonus for 100x your bet.
With 729 ways to win, this Book of Golden Sands slot gives you a nice twist on the usual 'Book Of' mechanics.
We like that you get all the same features you love, with 6 reels like in the Book of Ra Deluxe 6 slot, and that in the free spins, you can potentially increase the winning ways simply by winning.
What's more rewarding than getting more ways to win, all while filling your wallet with much more than just Golden Sands?
