Book of Light Slot Review

Being a critic is easy. All we have to do is point a gnarled finger at something someone else has poured their blood, sweat, and tears into and cackle. And someone pays us for this – what glorious times we live in.

Game studios catch a lot of flak, but sometimes they come up with things that leave us critics wide-eyed and quaking in our Crocs. Like that time when Assassin’s Creed: Origins predicted the use of a ramp at the Khufu pyramid before the real one was even discovered.

Book of Light slot from Platipus Gaming doesn’t claim to have uncovered any arcane truths, but I’ll settle for a pharaoh’s ransom. That’s not too much to ask, is it?


Book of Light slot doesn’t work on paylines. Instead, it uses something called a Block mechanic, meaning you’ll need to connect 3 or more symbols, either horizontally or vertically, in order to secure a win.

This is an impressive-looking game, what with the soaring pyramids and imposing statues dotted all around. While the idea isn’t exactly cutting-edge, it somehow still manages to make an impression thanks to the boldness of the design.

And let me tell you, this slot looks insane on a mobile phone in portrait mode. You’ll see the 5-reel grid floating in the sky, with the flanking statues underneath. The controls have also been beautifully rendered, so not only does it look great, it’s also practical.

The beauty of this game isn’t just skin deep, as it offers an astonishing max win of €397,800! Unsurprisingly, the volatility rate is high, and I’m also happy to report that there are no currency limitations here. So, whether you roll with crypto or fiat, you can do your thing with no worries.

There is one not-so-great aspect to Book of Light slot: the RTP. It’s been set at 95%, which is below the industry standard.


Our fabled book is the Scatter, which you’ll see everywhere on the reels during both the base game and Free Spins round.

Scatters replace all other symbols and can even substitute for a whole bunch at the same time so as to complete winning blocks. Also, Scatter wins get multiplied by the total bet.

Landing 5 Scatters pays 200x, 4 Scatters pays 20x, while 3 Scatters pays 2x the total bet.


Landing 3 or more Scatters kicks this round off with 10 spins. At the beginning, a random symbol will be chosen to act as a Special Expanding symbol.

If you manage to hit 2 or more Special Expanding symbols that are horizontally or vertically adjacent, these will expand to cover their entire reels once payouts have been made. Thereafter, another win will be awarded for this block of Expanded symbols. How’s that?!


This is your typical feature where you can buy your way into the Free Spins round for the cost of 70x your current bet. And that’s a really good price – it’s not uncommon for other games to hit you up for 100x your bet or more.


The Ancient Egyptians have attracted numerous conspiracy theories around how they managed to create such incredibly precise monuments with supposedly primitive tools.

Platipus hasn’t had to rely on alien tech to ensure Book of Light slot runs perfectly. They’ve made use of HTML5 so that their games run seamlessly across all devices and browsers. Book of Light slot does a sterling job, just as we’d expect.

Maximum Win

This slot offers a fortune worthy of a pharaoh – €397,800! That comes about when you match the max bet of €78 (you can start betting as low as €0.20, though) with the 5,100x multiplier.


This was an easy game for me to assess. Whatever your feelings about Egyptian-themed games, we’re ultimately here for one thing: to make money (entertainment is also important, but not to every player).

And my experience (yours will inevitably be different) revealed that Book of Light slot has the potential to be a money spinner. I consistently scooped up generous wins and initiated the Free Spins round regularly, without having to shell out.

But I would have no objections to using the Buy feature, as it’s not all that expensive (comparatively speaking), and Free Spins is where you make your moolah.

Amazingly, I’m not even going to say anything about the lack of features or the RTP. I loved this game purely for the way it brought in the bucks. And that’s all I need.
