Book of Golden Sands – Overview
I see you thinking, “another Book of slot game”? Yes, another one. And yes you are right if you think this uses the classic “Book of” bonus. But Pragmatic Play was able to give it enough twists to make it feel new and interesting.
Their new title is Book of Golden Sands. A game with an Egyptian theme, like so many of their games.
The game uses 6 reels that are each 3 symbols high and comes with 729 ways instead of lines.
You will find all the standard symbols you might expect. Horus, a pharaoh and of course books and scarabs.
The wild symbols, the scarabs only appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Wild symbols will have a random multiplier of x2 or x3. Book symbols, which are the scatter symbols, appear on all reels. And no they don’t count as wild symbols like with most “Book of” slot games.
Book of Golden Sands comes with a very nice maximum payout of 10.000 times your bet.
Book of Golden Sands Features
Free Spins Feature
3 or more scatter symbols will award 10 free spins.
Before free spins start one random, normal symbol, is selected to act as special expanding symbol during the free spins.
During free spins when the special symbol can create a win, with 2 or more or 3 or more of the same symbols, they will expand to cover the entire reel and will pay, no matter where on the reels.
So far a pretty standard “Book of” slot game.
But when special symbols have expanded, one of those symbols is collected above the reel where it expanded. The next time symbols might expand on the same reel, it will expand 3 symbols, but also adds the number of symbols collected, to a maximum of 10 symbols per reel. This will mean that you can have a lot more ways during free spins.
3 or more scatter symbols during free spins will add 10 more free spins.
Some casinos will offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 100 times your bet.
Like I started with in the beginning, yes it’s another “Book of” slot game. But Pragmatic Play made the game a lot more interesting than standard.
First the game comes with ways. And even multiplier wilds, which can give some nice wins during the base game. And then we have those free spins with the possibility to get more and more expanding symbols per reel. This makes the free spins very exciting and also very unique for a “Book of” slot.
I think Pragmatic Play created a pretty unique game between all the same clones. And I really like what they did with the mechanism.
