Playtech joined the rest of the software providers with their very own Book slot. As expected the game offers a familiar bonus round with expanding symbols but can also come with tripled payouts. This detail separates the Book of Kings from the rest and gives it a certain edge.
Book of Kings is a 10 pay line slot, with 5 reels and 3 rows. The number of pay lines in the game is fixed, so the bet size ranges from $0.10 to $500 per spin. The high bet size makes Book of Kings the perfect slot for high roller players, aiming to win big.
Like most other Book slots in the industry Book of Kings follows an Ancient Egypt theme. As you play the game you can see that the reels are set in front of the pyramids and the main game symbols correspond with this era. This is a popular theme across the industry, with a big number of Egyptian slots from many providers.
Book of Kings follows a familiar design for their bonus round, but they added a small Playtech flavor to it. The slot comes with two separate Scatter symbols; the Book and Book and Snake symbol. Both of them act as both Scatter and Wild symbols, replacing for all of the regular game symbols. Once 3 Books hit the reels you are awarded 10 free spins and one Special Expanding symbol from the paytable. This can be any symbol, except for the Book or Book and Snake symbol. This symbol expands to cover the reel it lands on during the feature and awards Scattered payouts. This means that the reel position of the symbol is irrelevant, you get a payout even if it lands on reels 1, 3, and 5. But the bonus round can also be triggered with a combination of the two Scatters. If this happens all payouts during the feature come with an x3 win multiplier attached. You can also re-trigger the feature an indefinite number of times, by landing 3 or more Scatters on the reels during the bonus.
Book of Kings is not a jackpot slot by design, but it can produce some pretty hefty payouts. The top win in the game comes from the Archeologist symbol, set at 500 times the total stake for 5 of a kind wins. This means that during the regular free spins bonus you can land payouts of up to 5,000 times the total stake. But if this happens during the snake bonus a payout like this goes up to 15,000 times the total stake. This payout alone is reason enough to give the game a try.
Book of Kings is an interesting slot which has more to offer in terms of payouts, than most other slots with the same design. This is due to the chance to get an x3 win multiplier in the free spins bonus, significantly increasing the overall payout potential of the game. Soon enough Book of Kings is expected to become a very popular slot across Playtech casinos.
