Pragmatic Play upgrades the winning ways in Book of Golden Sands

| By Kathryn Dempster

Pragmatic Play, the major content provider to the igaming industry, journeys to ancient Egypt in latest slot release Book of Golden Sands.

Played across 6×3 reels, the title features high-paying symbols, among them ancient Egyptian gods, Cleopatra and snakes, which must form matching combinations across the title’s 729 winning ways to award a win. Wild symbols also fill the reels with a multiplier of 2x or 3x attached to them, these substitute all symbols in the game except the scatter symbol making it easier for players to unlock wins.  

Landing three or more book symbols in the base game unlocks the free spins round. Here, a special expanding symbol is randomly selected to be in use throughout the 10 free spins awarded. Whenever three or more of the special symbols land, they expand to cover the entire reel. Additionally, this adds one of these symbols on top of the reels, while any future expansions also connect to this additional symbol and increases the winning potential further.  

Book of Golden Sands follows in the footsteps of recent hits such as Striking Hot 5, Happy Hooves and Octobeer Fortunes, which reside among a collection of over 250 titles in Pragmatic Play’s award-winning games portfolio. Irina Cornides, chief operating officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “We are excited about the launch of Book of Golden Sands, as we have augmented and adapted the traditional book-style game that many players are drawn to.

“We have included wild multipliers, an engaging feature which awards additional ways in the bonus game, and a universally adored Egyptian theme to create a title that we are confident players will enjoy.”

Pragmatic Play currently produces up to seven new slot titles a month, while also delivering live casino and bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API.
