Book of Kemet Slot Review

Being a slot game reviewer has its perks. I’m a thick bastard at the best of times, so doing this job has forced me to expand my knowledge because oftentimes, things come up that I’m completely ignorant about.

Here’s an example. When I read the title of the following game – Book of Kemet slot from BGAMING – I was like, “Kemet? Is that like the frog hand puppet’s cousin from the Midwest?”

Turns out Kemet was an ancient name for Egypt itself, and it means “black land.” Popular opinion is that the word derived from the fertile soil left over when the Nile flooded its banks each year. 🇪🇬🐪

Who’d have thunk it; you live and learn.


Book of Kemet slot has us looking at a big-ass 5x3-reel grid flanked by spear-wielding Anubis statues. Things look great on a mobile phone in either orientation, so this is a sweet option for folks who like to play on the go.

You’ll find an explorer dude on the reels, an Egyptian wearing an elaborate headdress, and two other deities. The Scatter Wild is a gem-encrusted book that substitutes for all symbols and pays wherever it lands.

This game has 10 paylines, an RTP of 94.82%, and a top prize of €155,820 courtesy of the 7,791x max multiplier. The volatility rate has been set to very high.



Hitting 3 or more Scatter Wilds will set this feature off and you’ll get 10 spins. A random symbol will be chosen to act as the Expanding one (it just can’t be the Scatter Wild), and it’ll pay even on reels that aren’t adjacent.

If you drop 3 additional Scatter Wilds during the Free Spins round, you’ll re-trigger the feature and 1 or more Expanding symbols will then be added (up to a max of 9). Oh, and there are no limits on how many times you can re-trigger.


You can buy into the Free Spins round with up to 9 expanding symbols. Here’s a breakdown of what each will cost:

  • 1 Expanding symbol = 110x
  • 2 Expanding symbols = 172x
  • 3 Expanding symbols = 235x
  • 4 Expanding symbols = 298x
  • 5 Expanding symbols = 361x
  • 6 Expanding symbols = 423x
  • 7 Expanding symbols = 485x
  • 8 Expanding symbols = 544x
  • 9 Expanding symbols = 591x


If you toggle this switch on – and bear in mind that doing so will cost you 60% of your bet – it’ll double your chances of triggering the Free Spins round.


The performance on Book of Kemet slot was stellar, as we’ve come to expect from BGaming. The gameplay wasn’t affected by different devices or browsers during testing.

Maximum Win

OK, so there’s an extensive betting spread available here, but the upshot is that you’ll have to shoulder a heavy financial burden if you want a shot at the €155,820 max win.

You’ll have to bet €200 a pop and hit the small 7,791x maximum multiplier to walk away with the big bucks. Alternatively, place the amount you’re comfortable with – betting starts at €0.10.


So, we know the game is a good option for mobile play but the max win should’ve been higher, given the hectic volatility rate. Also, buying Expanding symbols ain’t cheap; in fact, it can get mind-bogglingly exorbitant.

Then there’s the fact that you’ll have to bet at €200 for a shot at the main prize – all of which adds up to a game that will require some seriously deep pockets, but which doesn’t compensate to the degree I feel it should.

Lastly, Book of Kemet slot only offers Free Spins with Expanding symbols as its feature, which may or may not work for your playing style.

Personally, I would look at other games first before playing this one. But that’s me and you might feel differently on the matter.
