Book of Cairo Slot Review

Book lovers rise! After writing a million reviews on Ancient Egypt-themed slots, I was a little stumped about where to go with this one.

Thankfully, two minutes of research led me to find out that we’ve got our cat-worshiping pals to thank for the modern book. Yeah, that’s right – Ancient Egyptians were the first to develop written literature and in hieroglyphics to add an element of mystique.

So, what do we think, did they have Mills & Boon style smut? But instead of some handsome hero and his bimbo-esque blonde love interest, the covers might feature hot Egyptian deities wearing far too much guyliner.

In the meantime, why don’t we take a look at what Book of Cairo slot from Gamzix has to offer – I hope it’s a good one.

Gameplay

Talk about sensory overload! Book of Cairo slot is one of the busiest-looking games I’ve seen in a long time.

Seriously, it’s a little overwhelming. So many colors, so many symbols – it’s just a lot.

So, does it look any better on a mobile? Not really… the smaller screen just makes things look even more crowded. I think Gamzix needs to learn the meaning of “Too much of a good thing.”

And while it may look complex, this game is actually really simple. It plays out on 5 reels and 10 paylines and is pretty sparse on the features.

The statistics are also quite straightforward – we’ve got a 96.1% RTP and a high volatility rate. Yet, the maximum win is only set at €100,000, which isn’t terrible, but I’ve definitely seen better.

You can play with any currency you like and start your bet at €0.10. Set your bet to €20 and land the 5,000x multiplier to clinch the max win.

Features

FREE SPINS

Landing 3 or more Book Scatters will trigger 10 Free Spins. The Scatter also acts as a Wild, substituting for all other symbols.

EXPANDING SYMBOLS

During Free Spins, and after regular symbols pay out, special symbols can expand on the reels. They’ll cover up to 3 positions on the reels and play like regular symbols – on all paylines.

Performance

Book of Cairo slot breezed through hundreds of spins with ease. It didn’t matter if it was on mobile or desktop, Chrome or Safari, this slot stood up to the test.

Maximum Win

I could sure use an extra €100,000, but this is quite a low maximum win for a high-volatility slot. Still, I’m not going to say no – are you?

Conclusion

Look, Book of Cairo slot isn’t the most elaborate game out there. Sure, it’s eye-catching, but the reels are a little too busy for my liking.

The Free Spins feature is pretty standard, even with the addition of expanding reels, and the maximum win is decent but low for a slot with a high volatility rate.

Frankly, if you’re looking for something simple, this slot might do the trick. But don’t expect to be enthralled.
