What are the Best Online Slot Games Based on Books?

Book-reading and betting are two activities that don’t go together, right? Wrong! From book-themed adventures to literature-based games, there are plenty of slots for bookworms to enjoy. No matter if you prefer eBooks or printed novels, here are some of the best slots based on books that will suit all avid US readers.

Jumanji – NetEnt

Whether you prefer Robin Williams’ classic 1995 adaptation or the more recent film franchise, you’ll no doubt have seen (or at least heard of) Jumanji. But did you know that it’s based on an 80s children’s book?

NetEnt’s 2018 release Jumanji is based on the 1995 film version. The game features classic iconography from the movie, including Sticky Vines re-spins, Monsoon Wilds, and a Monkey Mayhem trigger that rearranges the grid. Plus, the grid itself is a replica of the Jumanji board, so you feel like you’re playing the real game (without the risk of releasing a stampede of rhinos.)


Fans of the horror genre are in for a spooktacular treat with StakeLogic’s Dracula slot. Launched in 2021, the game features a 3,750x maximum payout and Super Stake feature (stake pun intended.) Vampire-themed slots are one of the most popular genres at any online casino, and StakeLogic’s Dracula is far from original. However, bookworms will get a particular thrill from playing slot games based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel, which makes this StakeLogic classic a cult favorite. 

Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde – IronDog

Robert Louis Stevenson’s terrifying tale comes to life in IronDog’s 2020 release, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In keeping with his elusive nature, Mr. Hyde features as one of the highest paying (but rarest-occurring) pay symbols. A gothic grid and haunting soundtrack add to the slot’s unnerving aura, though two free spin features will keep the bravest players coming back for more.

Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah – Microgaming

Take your seat at the Mad Hatter’s tea party with this impressive progressive slot! Based on Lewis Carroll’s beloved Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, this progressive jackpot slot was released in 2020 by Triple Edge Studios (a Microgaming subsidiary studio) and has become famous for its regular seven- and eight-figure payouts.

Its base game is pretty simple, with a 5×3 grid configuration, 243 paylines, and cartoonish symbols plucked straight from Wonderland itself. The slot’s most significant selling point is its four progressive jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega. With a $2 million Mega Jackpot seed, you don’t want to be late to this party!

The Wizard of Oz – Light and Wonder

Released in 2022, Light & Wonder’s The Wizard of Oz chronicles the adventures of Dorothy and her lovable band of misfits as they search for the Emerald City. Even though the slot is based on L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the backdrop has been lifted straight from the set of the 1939 film adaptation. The pay symbols are made up of characters and items from the movie.

Alongside some top-tier animations and immersive graphics, this slot has two bonus games. Trigger the Yellow Brick Road bonus game to collect multipliers up to 5,000x, or activate the Wild Poppies bonus game and score some instant cash prizes.

Other Book-Themed Slots

The games above are by no means an exhaustive list of book-based slots. In fact, there are so many slot adaptations of popular books that you’ll never run out of new games to try. Still, are you hungry for more? Check out some of the other book-based slots below.

  • Robin Hood Wild Forest – Red Tiger
  • Lord of the Rings – Microgaming
  • Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory – Light and Wonder
  • Scrooge’s Jackpot – Leander Games
  • Tarzan – Microgaming
  • Pride and Prejudice – High 5 Games

Book of…Slots

Another popular slot theme is book-themed adventure games. Though they’re not directly based on pieces of literature, they all feature books as their focus. One of the most famous examples of this kind of slot is Play’n GO’s Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, where players follow an Indiana Jones-style Egyptologist named Rich Wilde on his quest for big spins and huge wins.

These style slots are hugely popular with US bettors and can include various installments from the same franchise. Some other popular examples include:

  • Book of Relics – Red7
  • Book of Ra – Greentube
  • Book of Alchemy – GameArt
  • Book of Aztec King – Pragmatic Play
  • Book of Kings – Rarestone Gaming
  • Age of the Gods: Book of Oracle – Ash Gaming
