The ‘Book of’ genre of slot games only continues to grow in popularity. The simple-to-understand and familiar gameplay between all these games has proven to be a fan favourite. However, with the sheer abundance of similar slots, which only continues to grow, it is hard to keep track of which ones provide something unique. Luckily for you, we will break down the top Book slots that are currently available to players.

If you want to see some more general Adventure-themed slots, you can look at the compiled list.

Top 5 Slots (Book of Dead, Book of Ra, etc.)

1. Book of King Arthur

With a set of regal reels, the iconic Arthurian legend is brought to life in this slot game riddled with ancient myth and legend. Situated in King Arthur’s own castle, the reels share a similar material to that of the iconic Excalibur sword. A medieval lute backing track fills the air of this red velvet-filled castle a set of mythological items, including the holy grail and Excalibur itself, populate the game’s reels alongside the familiar and conventional card-based symbols. Besides its exceptional graphical display and immersive setting, Book of King Arthur also provides players with an exciting base gameplay experience which is only enhanced by the boost and free spin bonus features on offer.

With the amount of green on display in this slot, you would hope the traditional Irish luck is on your side as the game’s Celtic stone reels sit within a valley, rolling hills stretching backwards behind the play table as an array of different coloured wildflowers sit comfortably in the tall luscious grass beneath, Hunting for the pot of gold is a common trope in these style of games, however, with the abundance of wild symbols available and free bonus spins, Book of the Irish provides an exciting gameplay experience for players new and more familiar with these style of games. If you’re really wanting to test your luck, the gamble feature within could help you win at least 5x your original wager!

3. Book of Dead

Book of Dead continues to be one of the front runners in the ‘Book of’ genre of slot games, and it’s easy to understand why. The Microgaming developers have showcased their graphical expertise in this instalment, which shines through in the Ancient Egyptian temple backdrop and the golden framed reels on which exciting base gameplay takes place. With the titular Book of the Dead acting as the game’s wild and scatter symbol, which triggers the free spin bonus round, the game’s bonuses continue to inject excitement into the already solid and enjoyable base gameplay experience. Similarly to Book of the Irish, Book of the dead allows you to gamble your last win, which could result in your end up being doubled or quadrupled if you can guess the card’s colour and suit correctly.

4. Book of Ra

If you like themes like that of Book of Dead, the similarly themed Book of Ra could be another ideal choice of slot. Once again portraying the familiar Ancient Egyptian theme, Book of Ra is credited with paving the way for other ‘Book of’ style slot games.

The common Egyptian tropes remain staples within this instalment, hieroglyphs, ancient trinkets and the pyramids all making an appearance.

However, portrayed in a much darker tone, the heavy shadows and lack of light from the ever-present desert sun adds an additional layer of mystery to this slot. Book of Ra’s free games feature adds yet another layer to this iconic slot game and ensures that this is a slot that stands out from so many others.

5. Book of Shadows

For players in search of a new darker-themed slot game with a number of different bonus features, Nolimit City brings us Book of Shadows in order to tick all those boxes. A dense and dark forest acts as this adventure slots backdrop, with a set of blood-chilling sound effects and an eerie, slightly sinister soundtrack only adding to the creepy nature. Lucky locks allow you to lock certain reels in place whilst you spin the other reels in an attempt to land winning combos, and successfully landing the satanic ritual book scatter symbol will trigger the game’s free spins bonus round. With up to 243 ways to win, Book of Shadows provides a unique style of gameplay in the ‘Book’ genre of slot games.


Despite the ‘Book’ genre of slots continuing to expand, it may seem like the style is becoming oversaturated. However, just using the above adventure slots as an example only proves that each differs in its unique way and style, ensuring no two book slots are the same. No matter where you are or what time it is, all these slots are compatible with a range of different devices, including phones, tablets and computers, ideal for those more adventurous and explorative souls.
