Open the Book of Slingo

Book of Slingo is an epic slot game with an Ancient Egyptian theme that makes us think of adventure films and hidden treasure. We love choosing numbers on the grid to mark off when Wilds and Super Wilds appear, and the opportunity to fast-track your way to the bonus game by landing three or more Book symbols on the reels makes things even more exciting.

Complete eight Slingos or more to unlock access to the bonus game. It’s up to you to decide whether to play the bonus game or end the current game and collect your winnings.

Book of Slingo has an RTP (Return to Player) of 96.38%, which makes it an attractive option for many players.

Here are a few more things we love about the game:

  • Fun bonus round with mystery expanding symbols
  • Variable bet sizes to suit all budgets
  • Detailed Egyptian theme

Exciting Bonus Features

Book of Slingo has a couple of fun bonus features to help bring the game to life. Here’s a quick summary:

Book of Slingo Bonus Game

In Book of Slingo, the bonus game can be triggered in two different ways. The first way is by completing eight or more Slingos on the grid. You can then decide whether to collect your winnings or play the bonus game.

The second way is by landing the Book of Slingo symbol on three or more of the reels at the same time. The greater the number of books that land on the reels (max. 5), the higher the value of the expanding symbol that will be active during the round.

The bonus game has a slot machine-style format, where you’ll try to match up symbols on the reels in the hopes of winning a cash prize.

Buy Extra Spins

At the end of each game, you’ll be given the chance to end the game and ‘Collect’, or buy extra spins to keep playing. The price of each spin will be shown on the ‘Spin’ button.



Variable Bet Sizes

Like all Slingo games, Book of Slingo caters for players with a range of different budgets. The minimum bet is £0.20 and the maximum bet is £100, meaning that you decide on the bet size that suits you best. Remember never to gamble with money you can’t afford to lose.

In the bonus game, the value of the symbols depends on your bet size. For example, if you land five Book Scatters on the reels you’ll win 50x your bet. Five Eye of Horus symbols is also worth 50x your bet, while five Anubis (jackal head) symbols are worth 20x your bet.

For a full list of the different symbols and their values, click the green cog to the right of the game screen followed by the question mark, then scroll along to Slot Pays.

Stunning Egyptian Theme

Book of Slingo is a beautifully designed game set in Ancient Egypt, with pyramids visible in the background behind palm trees that sway in the wind. Two ornate golden statues of Anubis, the Egyptian god with the head of a dog, flank the familiar Slingo grid.

To give you a bit of background information on Anubis, he was the god of mummification and of the afterlife. It’s thought that his canine head was inspired by jackals, who were known to dig up the bodies of the dead if they were not buried deep enough. By creating a god with the head of a dog, the Egyptians hoped he would help them to stop the real-life jackals from disturbing the dead.

In the Book of Slingo game, symbols include the Book of Slingo itself, a Wild scarab beetle, and the Eye of Horus. The Eye of Horus represents protection, health and restoration, and remains an important cultural symbol today. You may even have come across it in other slot games!

We love the detail that has gone into the design of Book of Slingo, and it really helps to conjure up a feeling that we are on a journey to discover the mysteries of Ancient Egypt.
