Low RTP for an Online Slot
When it comes to online slots many have very nice rtp percentages. In fact at times a lot of players will state slots online have higher payouts then their land based casino counterparts.
The Book of Kemet rtp is 94.82 and while we have sadly seen some games lower we feel this game would be better with a higher one.
Book of Kemet Wrap Up
In conclusion of our review we must say we enjoyed the theme and story line of the game. With a very high volatility we do wish the rtp was bit higher however and we feel is the biggest drawback of this game. Over all the game was fun but the hit rate was a bit lower than we would have liked to have seen.
We may play the game again, but we do tend tyo play slots with a little higher return more often. You can find this game at BGaming casinos.
