Book of dead
Explorer Rich Wilde is on yet another adventure to find hidden treasures in this Book of Dead slot by Play’n Go. What we love most about this pokie is that there’s a huge amount of free spins in the base game. The star of this game is the Golden Book of Dead symbol. It’s both the scatter and the wild. Land three Book of Dead symbols on the reels to trigger the bonus game of 10 free spins. You can also win big with five of a kind symbol combinations that will score you anything from 10x to 500x your stake.
Book of Dead: Theme and Background
The Book of Dead carries the secrets of the dead inside, and in this pokie, you’re on an adventure set deep inside the ruins of ancient Egypt. Rich Wilde is the confident, Indiana Jones-type explorer hunting hidden treasures and rewards in a dusty, old tomb. He’s also a high-paying symbol on the reels. You will have seen this character travel the world if you’ve played other Play’n Go adventure slots like Aztec Idols and Pearls of India. A golden light illuminates the 5×3 grid where you can see ancient Egyptian artefacts as the other high-paying symbols. The low-paying icons are the usual playing card symbols Ace to ten and the ones you will see the most of as they keep the base game going.
Book of Dead: Layout and Functionality
The Book of Dead video pokie is set on 5 reels with 10 active paylines. You can choose to play anywhere from one to all ten paylines, so this is a great game for players of all budgets. Here is just the one bonus game – those bonus spins, but boy, are they exciting! During a round of bonus spins, one symbol becomes an expanding scatter and fills the reel. If you manage to fill all five reels with the top-paying symbol – Rich Wilde himself – you’ll score the jackpot win of 5000x your stake.
Our Opinion about Book of Dead
Of course, we’ve noticed the many similarities between Book of Dead and the Book of Ra pokie by Novamatic. However, we feel that Book of Dead is a step up with great graphics and exciting sounds and the mechanics just work better on any device. Although it was released in 2016, it remains one of the most popular slots by Play’n Go today – or any provider for that matter. The gameplay is simple and the RTP is a decent 96.21%. But like many Play’n Go pokies it is a high variance game, so you’ll need to manage your bankroll carefully. However, those free spins are just enough to give you that adrenaline rush, especially as they also trigger the expanding symbols feature giving you the chance of reaching that 5000x win.
