One of my favourite new online slots that I can recommend checking out this weekend is the new sequel to the original Book of Kings online slot from Playtech. The new Book of Kings 2 online slot (which is properly known as Jane Jones: Book of Kings 2) is now available to play at a growing number of highly recommended SA online casinos such as Casino.com and Mansion Casino.
This new Himalayan-themed slot was released on desktop and mobile in February 2021. It can be enjoyed either on desktop or mobile, and it can be launched either instantly in your web browser or from within the Playtech casino download client. On any lucky spin during the main Free Spins Bonus Round, you can win up to 4,000x times your total stake, and you can take one spin of the reels from as little as $/€/£0.10 up to a maximum of $/€/£500.00 per spin (or equivalent value in Rand).
The thing that makes this game different from the original Book of Kings slot, apart from the obvious difference between the themes, is the fact that there are two different game modes. You have the Day Mode, which you will start out in, and during the Day Mode, it’s possible to trigger the Night Mode. If you manage to gain entry to the Night Mode, you will be granted at least 3 spins, and they are FREE. The main special symbol to keep an eye out for during both modes is the BOOK, which is the game’s Wild Symbol AND Scatter Symbol.
You have the Day Scatter Symbol during the Day Mode and the Night Scatter Symbol during the Night Mode. When playing in the Night Mode, you’ll instantly be awarded a guaranteed bonus of 10 Free Spins if 3 Scatter Symbols happen to land anywhere in view on the same spin, or just 5 Free Spins if only 2 Scatter Symbols show up. Before the Free Spins Bonus can begin, one symbol will be randomly selected for you, and then each time it lands during the Free Spins Bonus, it will expand to cover the entire reel(s) it lands on from top to bottom.
Three or more Expanding Symbols must land to form a winning combo, and the good news is that they don’t need to land on adjacent reels. They can land on non-adjacent reels (e.g. reels 2, 4 and 5, reels 1, 3 and 5, or reels 1, 2 and 4), and it would result in a payout. The other good news is that there’s no limit to the number of Free Spins that can be retriggered.
In the Day Mode, you need a minimum of 3 Scatter Symbols to land to trigger the Free Spins Bonus. Just 3 Scatter Symbols triggering the bonus gets you 10 Free Spins plus an instant cash prize worth just 2X times your total stake. If 4 Scatter Symbols trigger the bonus, you’ll get 10 Free Spins + 20X times your stake, or 10 Free Spins and 200X times your stake if 5 Scatter Symbols triggered the bonus. An Expanding Symbol is also active through the Day Mode Free Spins Bonus, plus unlimited retriggers are also possible during the feature.
