It’s not ancient Egypt but ancient Rome we travel to as this Book of Juno slot tries to do things slightly differently but mostly stays the same.
The “Book of” series are generally well known and very popular. From the Book of Ra Deluxe slot which starts it all to the Book of Sheeba to the Book of Dead, to the Book of Tut slot to… well, you get our point.
If you know what that’s like, you’ll know what you’ll find here.
Book of Juno slot is a 5×3 reel game with 10 paylines and a wild that also acts like a scatter. Trigger the free spins and you’ll play 10 spins where one symbol will cover the reels and pay regardless of where on the payline it stands.
The Book of Juno video slot isn’t trying to re-invent the wheel, just trying to give you a few surprises along the way. For example, the theme.
Set overlooking the beautiful temple of the queen of the Roman gods, her book is pink and she munches on pomegranate and grapes, whilst her peacock shows off its feathers. Add some Ace to 10 symbols, and what you have here is a very classic, even old fashioned, video slot theme.
The other surprise is in the free spin bonus. One random symbol is chosen by the Book of Juno, but instead of expanding on the reels it comes stacked on the reels and then nudges to expand on the reels.
See the difference? No? Us neither. It’s really all just dressing up to seem different, rather than making any real changes – unlike games such as the Doom of Dead slot which added expanding wilds to the mix.
And this is why we had to give this Book of Juno slot review at least 3 stars. Sure it’s not original. And yes the theme is a little old fashioned. But the mechanics and the wins are sound.
You can still win 5,000x your bet if Juno herself is chosen as the expanding stacked symbols in the free spin bonus. You don’t need multipliers. Who cares if it nudges or expands symbols – as long as you get those wins, isn’t that what matters? Sure.
And that’s why this Book of Juno online slot by Gamomat is very playable. You’ve got all the great mechanics from the past in one beautiful ancient Roman goddess.
If you want nothing more, this is certainly a bargain to play at only 0.10 minimum bet.

Wild/Scatter: The Book of Juno slot symbol is the wild and the scatter symbol. It will substitute for all symbols to create a win, and it will trigger the free games.
Free Games: You'll trigger 10 free spins when you get 3 or more scatters on the screen. During this bonus, one random symbol will be chosen to come stacked on all reels and pay like a scatter - so it doesn't have to sit left to right to get a win. It will also nudge into place to cover the whole reel if a win is possible.
You have all the right qualities - that 5,000x your bet max win, a wild that acts like a scatter and those symbols that pay like scatter in the free spins.
As much as they tried to find a different way to serve you the same kind of game, you still end up comparing this to the better and more magical Book of Ra Deluxe 6 slot or even the more modern Legacy of Dead slot.
In other words, this Book of Juno slot is good, but there's better like it out there. Then again, if you come across it and like the style, the wins and mechanics are good enough to play.
