Playtech partner RareStone Gaming follows up their earlier slot, Book of Kings with Jane Jones Book of Kings 2. Like the original, Jane Jones: Book of Kings 2 capitalizes on the ever-growing popularity of the ‘book of’ slot styling, started by Novomatic’s Book of Ra. The same case as in all the ‘book of’ rehashes, expanding, pay anywhere symbols in the bonus round take center stage as the developer mixes in a few extras, hoping that they could make theirs a standout.

Sequel Overview: Skin, Carryovers, Changes, & Basic Rules
Aesthetics-wise, Pragmatic Play opts for a complete theme changeover. They abandon the pyramids of Giza to take on the orient.
Instead of Pyramids standing on desert sand, players get greeted by Japanese-style temples perched high on the hills as snow falls from the sky. It’s a new scene altogether, which talks depths about how hard the developers at RareStone have been with graphics.
Players hoping to go all out will be thrilled to see the upper bet limit increased to 500 from 125 Euros here. The lower bet limit remains the same at 0.10 Euros, which is ideal for those looking to stretch their budget to the extreme limit. After selecting the bet, customize the gameplay-speed, right before using the spin or auto-play button to set the reels in motion.
Algorithm stats and gameplay-wise, do not expect a complete turnaround since the 5×3, ten-payline set up from the original is utilized. The most significant changes are the lower potential and RTP percentage, which is not hard to explain seeing the friendlier volatility setting.
On to the paytable, Jane Jones, the explorer, makes a return as the premium, paying 400x for a five-of-a-kind combination. She is followed by a Buddhist monk, two orient symbols, and A-10 blackjack royals. At least three symbols are required to trigger a payout, sitting adjacently from the leftmost reel.
Day and Night Modes
The game is set to day-mode at default. The night mode can trigger at random on any base game spin and last for at least three rounds. Unlike in the day mode, spins are played on the house during night mode.
Watch Out for the Day Book & Night Book!
The day-book and night-book act as wilds, replacing all regular symbols to complete winning combinations. Besides that, they act as scatters, triggering day free spins and night free spins, respectively.
Please Note: The day-book can only appear when the game is in day mode. Same for the night-book, it only appears when the game is in night mode. Each book also pays 2, 20, and 200x for three, four, and five appearances.
As already mentioned, there are two free spins modes. While ten day free spins are triggered by three appearances of the day-book, five and ten night free spins are triggered by two and three appearances of the night-book, respectively.
A pay anywhere, expanding symbol is selected at the start of each free spins session. Retriggers are possible.
