Pragmatic Play has once again partnered with Reel Kingdom to produce its newest slot, Book of Kingdoms. This 5x3 slot is set in the desert, though the theme is rather vague besides featuring exotic-looking characters. This slot comes with free spins, respins that can be retriggered without limit, and 3 fixed jackpots. These features have been used in previous slots with Book-of themes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be enjoyed here. Book of Kingdoms can be played at Pragmatic Play online and mobile casinos.

Low-paying symbols include A-10 royals while high-paying symbols include a snake lady, monkey, sultan, and an adventurer with no hat. The latter pays out 20x the stake for 5 on a payline. There is also a book symbol that acts as both wild and scatter. It can substitute for any regular symbols on the reels and when 3 or more land at the same time, players win 5 free spins.
Before the free spins begin, one pay symbol is randomly chosen to be the expanding symbol. After wins have been paid out, if 3 or more expanding symbols are in view, they expand to cover all positions on the reel for extra wins. If 3 or more scatters land during the free spins, 5 additional spins are paid out. The free spins can be retriggered without limit.
When 5 money symbols land, the Money Respin Bonus feature is triggered. When this happens, the other symbols disappear and 3 respins are rewarded. If new money symbols land, they are locked into place and players get another set of 3 respins. The respins round ends when all respins have been used or when all reel positions have been filled with money symbols. Money symbols come with a cash value or 1 of 3 jackpots: Minor, Major, and Mega, paying out 30x, 100x, and 1000x the stake, respectively.
Book of Kingdoms offers solid features and a generous maximum payout of 20,000x the stake, but at the same time, the Book-of title seems to be used simply to attract players, with no real substance behind it. Players who are keen on Book-of slots may be disappointed to find little content in this one, but on the other hand, the free spins, respins, and fixed jackpots are solid enough to stand on their own.
