Book of Golden Sands Slots

Book of The Golden shines visually and is one of the better Ancient Egyptian slots out there. The animations are fashionable with a color palette that's aesthetically pleasing. Most games stick with a lot of browns and golds, which may be historically accurate, but this game includes shining blues and purple saturation that just make the gold pop even more. It looks more like how you would have expected Egypt would look at the sunset, at the height of its beauty and splendor.

They have expanding symbols, and this game is thanks to the creators over at Pragmatic Play, who always makes some of the best visually appealing games on the market. The expanding symbols are a key feature in Book of Golden Sands. This is a glossy game. In the background, we see the sunset, with pink hues and blue hues, along with a pyramid off in the distance, and a few palm trees. When you engage with the game, the reel takes place in some sort of tomb, and it includes animated torches to the left and right of the grid and a statue. The soundtrack is soothing and Egyptian-inspired, though not traditionally Egyptian music. There are shamanic-sounding drums and soft synth music to keep the slot modern.


There are regular pay symbols and higher paying symbols in this game. The low-paying symbols pay around 1.25 per stake to 1.5 times per stake, and they're the jewels with the sacred egyptian symbols encrusted in them, like the ankh and the egyptian eye. The higher-paying symbols are images like the golden Pharaoh, the cleopatra-like female, the golden snake, and others. The character symbols award 2 to 5 times your bet for six, and the Book of Sands has a wild symbol. This symbol can substitute for any other paying symbols, and when these symbols are triggered, the player will also receive a random multiplier which can be worth x2 or x3.


The book symbol is the scatter. If you land 3-6 of these scatters, you'll be rewarded with free spins. You'll win 10 free spins, plus a payout that will vary. The payout can be as little as 2x your stake to as much as 500x your stake. Before the free spin round engages, an animation of a book shuffling its pages will choose a random pay symbol. This symbol will become the expanding symbol, and during these rounds, these special symbols can help the player form more wins. This symbol can expand across an entire reel, and pay from any position. When the symbol expands, one of the symbols is collected at the top of the reels. When the symbol expands again, they'll expand to 3 positions along with adding in the number of symbols collected at the top of the reels up to 10. This can be very beneficial for increasing wins. You can also retrigger the bonus round an unlimited number of times. There is also a bonus buy feature, so you can buy free spins for 100x the total stake.
