Book of Kemet: Slot Overview

The online software provider BGaming has been on the market for quite a while and has always swum under the radar of many players. But there is no denying that they have made a name for themselves in recent history. In this online slot review we will be taking a look at another addition to their ever growing repertoire of games: Book of Kemet.

Book of Kemet is played on 5 reels with 3 rows and 10 set paylines. BGaming themselves give Book of Kemet a Very High volatility rating. Bet sizes range from 0.20€ to 12€ (or equivalent), but may vary depending on where you play.

In terms of winning symbols, BGaming orientated along many other Book games. In Book of Kemet you will find 9 different winning symbols, with 5 of them on the lower end and 4 on the higher end. As always, let’s begin on the lower end. Here you will find the classic winning symbols from 10 to A, that are pretty similar in payouts. For 10’s, J’s and Q’s you will get 10-times your bet size for a full line. Next up are already K’s and A’s for 15-times your bet size.

On to the higher tier symbols. At the higher end you will find the purple Seth mask and the blue Anubis mask, both clocking in at 75-times your bet size for a full line. The second to last symbol will be the Pharaoh with the Golden Mask for 200-times your bet size. And last but not least, you might have already guessed it, will be the Explorer for a whooping 500-times your bet size for a full line of him. So as you can see, BGaming took a lot of inspiration from other Book games, not only with the winning symbols but also with the payouts.

Book of Kemet: Special Symbols and Stats

Book of Kemet Slot - Basegame

Book of Kemet also comes with Special symbols. Although the plural form of „symbol“ might be wrong here.

Book of Kemet actually only features one single Special symbol, and this is the Book of Kemet itself. The book is engraved with 3 crystals and an eye on the bottom. This Special symbol has two different uses in the game. First of all it functions as a Scatter symbol. If you manage to land 3 or more books in one single spin, you will be granted Free Spins. We will go over this feature in our Feature Overview section.

The second use the book has is that is serves as a Wild symbol. The book will substitute for any winning symbol. So Wilds have no payout themselves, instead, if you are lucky enough to get a full line of books, you will be granted the payout of the highest symbol, which would be the Explorer.

Let’s take a look at the stats of Book of Kemet. Unfortunately we can’t give you much, since BGaming does not publish lots of stats of their games. What we can tell you is that Book of Kemet comes with a base RTP of 94.82%, a good portion under the average. The max win potential of the game is capped at 7,791-times your base bet size. Don’t ask why the number is so crooked. And that’s pretty much everything we can give you.

Book of Kemet: Feature Overview

Book of Kemet - Free Spins with 9 expending symbols

Book of Kemet has some interesting features, that we’re going to take a closer look at.

  • Free Spins Feature

Like we mentioned before, if you manage to land 3 or more book symbols in one single spin you will be granted 10 Free Spins. Before your Free Spins start, a random winning symbol is selected. This will be your special symbol. Now every time your special symbol has landed often enough that it could be a win on its own on a line, it will expand. So for example, 10’s would expand if 3 or more are visible, Explorer would already expand at 2 visible symbols. When your symbol expands, it will pay its value on all 10 winning lines, no matter on which reel they land. Important to know is, that the Wild symbol will not substitute for expanding symbols.

Retriggering is also possible and even crucial. You might have already noticed that the screen expanded. You now have a top bar, showing you all the symbols, and the one you got is lit up. Upon retriggering, with 3 or more books in one spin, you will be granted 10 additional Free Spins, as well as another special symbol. The feature will end once every spin has been used or the max win potential has been reached.

  • Bonus Buy Feature

Book of Kemet also comes with a Bonus Buy Feature. If you don’t want to wait, you can pay a certain amount to skip the line and head right into the Bonus Game. But BGaming went a step further and don’t only offer a Bonus Buy, but you can also decide with how many symbols you want to start. Below you will find a table of all the available options.

Amount of symbols Price
1 symbol 110x
2 symbols 172x
3 symbols 235x
4 symbols 298x
5 symbols 361x
6 symbols 423x
7 symbols 485x
8 symbols 544x
9 symbols 591x

The RTP can vary depending on which option you buy, but is in most cases slightly higher than the base RTP.

  • Bonus Chance

In Book of Kemet you can also use the Bonus Chance Feature. For an additional charge of 60% of your base bet you can double your chances of getting a Bonus trigger. Unfortunately we have no exact details on how many spins on average you would need. Nor can we tell your if that changes anything on the RTP.

Book of Kemet: Conclusion

Although Book of Kemet is „just“ a copy of one of BGamings earlier games, „Dig Dig Digger“, it still has its own charme. BGaming did a beautiful job in converting the more humoristic attempt of Dig Dig Digger into a serious book game, that can easily compete with other book games on the market.

But in the end Book of Kemet is „only“ a book game. That doesn’t mean that it’s bad or anything. Book games are among the most played games on the market, and probably always will be. But we also see so many of them for that particular reason, which is fine, as long as the game is made good. And Book of Kemet is among those good made games.

All in all, Book of Kemet brings a lot of fun. The Bonus Buy Feature is great, especially since you can pick with how many symbols you want to start. The Bonus Chance extra bet is also great, although we would have wished to know how many spins you would need on average. However, we are very pleased with Book of Kemet. This concludes our online slot review. It was fun testing Book of Kemet for you. Hopefully we answered all of your questions without leaving anything open.
