A brief introduction

With Reel Kingdom, Pragmatic Play has created Book of Kingdoms, a new online slot that is designed for players who have a preference for classic slots. This slot is the result of a collaboration between the two companies. There are a variety of free spins and respins that are featured in this slot game, and the main character is the slot adventurer John Hunter who has embarked on yet another exotic journey.


Graphics and the theme of the site

John Hunter and the Book of Kingdoms is the second in the John Hunter and the Book of Kingdoms series to be developed by Reel Kingdom. So in the end, I think it looks a lot more like Tomb of the Scarab Queen compared to Return of the Dead because it has a much more photorealistic look to it.

As a matter of fact, we preferred the first batch of John Hunter games with a more comic book style aesthetic, since there is something a little bit uncanny about slot games that have graphics that look almost realistic when compared to those that have more cartoon-like graphics. However, that doesn't take anything away from the game's gameplay and it has a vibrant look that will catch the eye of everyone who plays it.


This is how you play the game.

The process of getting started with Book of Kingdoms is quick and easy:

If you would like to review the paytable and in-depth rules of the game once it loads, click on the i symbol.

Make sure you adjust the size of your bet accordingly. It is possible to bet between .25 coins and 250 coins on each spin.

There are also options where you can set limits on how much you lose and how much you win in your autoplay settings.

Let the spinner do the work for you and enjoy the ride!


RTP and Variance of Book Of Kingdoms

In terms of RTP (return to player), Book of Kingdoms has a return to player rate of 96.69%. This is much higher than we're used to seeing in online slots these days, as most of them max out at around 96.5% these days. In addition, it is a medium variance slot with a rating of 3/5 on Pragmatic Play's own scale of ratings.


Here is how you can win

A winning combination is made by landing three or more matching symbols across any of the 25 paylines available in Book of Kingdoms from Pragmatic Play and the game has 25 paylines in total. One of the most generous symbols in the game is John Hunter himself who pays out 20x your stake for a five-of-a-kind combination if you manage to land them all.


Feature of Money Respins

As soon as you land five or more symbols of silver coins on the reels, you will trigger the Money Respin bonus game. In this scenario, all of the regular symbols will disappear and only coins will appear on the reels in place of the regular symbols.

Each time you land a silver coin symbol, you will get 3 respins, and the counter will reset to 3 whenever you land another silver coin symbol. It is possible for each of these coins to contain a cash value or it can contain one of three jackpots:

Minor: 30x

Major: 100x

Mega: 1000x

Your totals will be added up at the end of the round (when either you run out of respins or fill the reels up entirely), once the round is over.

A variety of free spins and bonuses are available at the casino

The free spins round will be triggered if you land three scatter symbols on the reels. You will only get 5 free spins at the beginning, but as soon as you spin the reels, a randomly selected special symbol will appear on the reels, and it will expand whenever it appears on the reels. In addition to that, it will also pay out even if the symbols do not appear in adjacent positions.

The bonus can be retriggered if you land three or more scatter symbols in a row.


Review of the overall experience

There is no doubt that John Hunter and the Book of Kingdoms is not the most original slot we have played so far, but there are still some good things about this game. If you can combine the respins bonus and the free spins bonus in the same game, you can never go wrong. it's just a pity that you can only get 5 free spins at a time when you get the free spins bonus.

There is no doubt that the two bonus features are two of the most popular among players. A respin bonus is similar to the one you'll see in Money Train 2, while a free spins round is very similar to what you'll find in a bonus round for Book of Dead. There's no denying that these features are loved by players, but it would be nice if Pragmatic Play had taken the initiative to do something just a little bit different with them.

There is no doubt that the maths model is the major selling point of this game. Book of Kingdoms is a medium volatility slot with a high RTP of 96.69%, giving it a medium volatility rating. In other words, even though you might not experience a lot of ground-breaking bonuses, you will be able to take advantage of a pretty generous winning potential no matter what you do.

As a whole, Book of Kingdoms isn't really the kind of game that you'd want to play if you're looking for an online gaming experience that is different or somewhat modern. I would say that this is more of a slot that will appeal to fans of classic-style games than modern ones.
