Don’t let the name fool you: this Book of Kingdoms mobile slot might have expanding scatter pays, but it doesn’t pay as much as you’d hope from this kind of real money game.
If you are a long term fan of slot machines, you’ll know that a casino game with the title ‘Book Of’ generally has a few things you love: namely Expanding Scatters, Free Spins, and a Wild Book symbol that also acts like a scatter.
Except something is a little odd about this Book of Kingdom slot game. For one it has 25 paylines rather than 10. For two it has two free spins features, rather than one. What is going on? Is this a more modern take on the classics?
First of all, we took a look at how much you can win. Most of the games we’ve mentioned above have a top win of 5,000x your bet.
The Book of Kingdoms slot has a top win of 500x your bet only. Ah. This is a completely different ball game.
What you have here is 25 paylines with lesser paying symbols, meaning a lesser top win. Yes, the Book of Kingdoms slot symbol is both the wild and the scatter symbol. Yes, it replaces other symbols. And yes if you get 3 of them you trigger the free spins.
But in the free spins bonuses, you only get 5 bonus games (not 10) with lesser value symbols that do expand and pay like a scatter. The free spins don’t hit all that more often, so in essence, we felt a little cheated as we spun this game.
The good news is that this Book of Kingdom slot machine gives you not one but two free spin bonus. If the scatters don’t give you a good round, you may get luckier with the coins.
5 coin scatters will trigger a similar jackpot game like the one in the Divine Fortune slot game. Each coin will have a cash value and you’ll have 3 spins to get as many coins as you can.
Some of those coins will have one of three jackpots. Only these are in-game jackpots, the biggest one of which will win you 1,000x your bet. Not a bad sum by any means.
It just doesn’t feel like enough to draw us in, when there are so many modern takes on this game that you could play – games like the Holiday Spirits slot for example.
2 stars for being playable, but not quite a recommendation for us.

Wild Scatter: The Book of Kingdoms is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols exact other books or the coin symbol. It also can pay as a scatter and trigger the free spins.
Money Jackpot Spins: The Money coin can land on all reels on any spin and when 5 of them land you get the Money Respin Feature. You get 3 re-spins to catch more coin. Each coin will have a value symbol. If a coin lands, the re-spins re-set to 3 spins. If you get 3 non-winning spins, the game ends.
The coins can also land with any of these jackpots:
You can only get one of any of the jackpot coins on any spin, and the amounts are then added together at the end of the round.
Free Spin Feature: 3 Book of Kingdoms slot symbols will trigger 5 free spins. One special symbol will then be chosen to expand and cover the whole reel when it shows up. That symbol will now pay like a scatter - so it will pay on all 10 paylines regardless of what reel they land on.
We weren't massively convinced about this Book of Kingdoms slot game. It doesn't help that other similar games have a 5,000x your bet max win, and here you can hope to maybe hit 1,000x if you get the jackpot.
But then again, this isn't meant to be a high variance game like you'll find in the Book of Ra Deluxe 6 review. This is meant to be a little more of a high-jinx adventure full of cliches and a quicker wins than other expanding scatter slot machines.
And if that's what you want, that's certainly what you get here. But to us, this felt like a cheaper, lesser version than the originals, rather than a modern take on a well-loved game.
We'd rather play on the Legacy of the Dead slot which has similar mechanics, quicker wins, and higher stakes.
