While Christmas-themed slots are nothing new, it was the one theme missing from the book series that started with the very popular Book of Ra. Inspired Games rose to the challenge with its 5×3, 10 fixed pay-line Book of Christmas slot.
True to the standard format, this game has the dual wild-scatter book symbol that awards 200x your total bet for five and the expanding symbols with special rules for wins during free spins. Light the fire, grab a cup of cocoa, and snuggle up with this slot to see what gifts Santa has for you.

Bonus and jackpots for Book of Christmas (Rating of 3.5/5)
The Book of Christmas slot adheres to the format of the very popular Book of Ra slot, as do other titles made by various developers in the book series genre. All slots that follow this format have the same game mechanics but different themes and graphics. The wilds in this slot also double as scatters, awarding you with free spins and scatter wins.
No matter how many books appear, three or more give you 10 free spins. For the scatter wins, you receive two times your total bet for three books, 20 times for four books, and 200 times for five.
The Book of Christmas opens up and scrolls through the various symbols found within its pages before selecting the special symbol that will expand during the free spins. The expanded symbols don’t pay like the regular pay-line symbols do — they have special rules, and you’ll win with symbols anywhere on the pay-lines.
During the free spins, you can have regular pay-line wins before the symbols expand, and then the expanded wins are added on top of each spin. You can retrigger another 10 free spins with the same special symbol if three or more books appear.
While Christmas-themed slots are fun to play around the holiday, combining a common theme with a book series format takes away from any sense of originality in the design.
Book of Christmas graphics and visuals (Rating of 4/5)
This slot has a transparent reel set, with reels separated by candy cane poles overlaid on a snowy, winter landscape brightened by the warm glow from the windows of snow-covered houses. Besides the card symbols, the premium symbols include a wrapped gift, sled, nutcracker, and Santa. The graphics are well done, especially the lovely background, and enhance the festive mood and overall game experience.
Book of Christmas gameplay (Rating of 3/5)
Book of Christmas does not deviate from the book series format, and, like other book games, it’s somewhat puzzling at first how the expanded symbols work. While the lack of originality is a downside, a more glaring weakness is the music during the main game. While some may find it enjoyable, it’s almost annoyingly repetitive. We find the game much more fun by turning the volume down enough to hear the win jingles and sound effects without being distracted by the music.
Overall rating for Book of Christmas by Inspired Gaming (Rating of 3.5/5)
For people who love Christmas-themed slots or the Book of Ra, Book of Christmas is a great game. The graphics are high-quality and work well to create a festive mood. While it’s a shame the developers didn’t try to add anything new to the game mechanics, the fact that you might have a better game experience with the volume turned down because of the music is another detraction. However, you might love the music, which you’ll only find out if you give the game a try for yourself. Looking at the pros and cons, we give Book of Christmas an overall 3.5/5 rating.
