Book of Christmas Slot review
Book of Christmas is Inspired Gaming’s release for the winter of 2019, a beautiful game with a traditional theme and high volatility.
You’re looking at a slot machine with a traditional Christmas theme, offered by Inspired Gaming. They used the Book of Christmas as the main feature symbol, while for the rest of the icons you either get the five Royals in low positions, or images of Santa, Gifts, Toy Soldiers and Sleighs. It’s a good looking game, just what you’d want for Christmas.
Book of Christmas gets 5×3 reels, so the usual game area, and it will be occupied by only 10 lines. It features mixed wilds/scatters (Book symbols), it has free spins and special expanding symbols, just what you’d expect in a game with a Book of Ra inspired engine. A top jackpot of $250,000 is a possibility inside, while RTP wise we’re looking at 96.23%.
Getting 10 lines active, the slot asks that you spend at least $0.10 per spin, with the option of going as high as $50, if you want to. The amount spent per line would reach $5 in that case.
The slot’s got that traditional theme that people will love, but the action inside is one that we’ve seen dozens of time before, in this exact form. We get a Book of Ra clone basically, just the graphics changing comparing with other slots doing the same thing. Still, if you really love that type of game, a Christmas themed title might be just the thing to be trying during the holidays.
You have a symbol with a Book of Christmas, which will be acting as a wild symbol a lot of the times, taking part in the creation of new wins along the way. You can use these next to any regular symbols, you just need to end up with 2-3 or more symbols on the same line, left to right, and a combo forms.
Now, the Book symbol is also a scatter when it appears 3 or more times, delivering its own wins (2x to 200x total stake) and triggering 10 free spins then. In the free spins mode, the game picks one random symbol and gives it the ability to expand on its reel, whenever it appears, if this ends up being profitable for you.
It’s a game for the hardcore fans of the Book of Ra style games, and it allows them to play something a that’s holiday inspired. Not a bad game, just not very original in other ways.
