Rich Wilde is back with Book of Dead – the 5 reel, 10 payline slot is powered by Play ‘N Go and playable across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. Spin away from 10p to £100 a spin, you are taken to the mythical underworld of Ancient Egypt where you step into the light after encountering Anubis and Osiris.
There are 11 different symbols in the game with 9 normal symbols, and 1 free spins scatter symbol (the Book of Dead) which also acts as the wild. The high value symbols include Rich Wilde himself which can give you 5,000 times your line stake when 5 appear on a payline.
The Book symbol is both the wild and scatter symbol – when it appears as a wild, it can substitute for any other reel symbol to help you form winning combinations. When it appears as a scatter, 3 or more are needed anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Here you will be rewarded with 10 free spins. However, look out for 3 scattered Book symbols as this will give you a further 10 free spins. More importantly, a symbol is chosen randomly before the feature starts to act as a special expanding symbol. If you get this symbol on a few reels, it can give you some huge wins.
Book of Dead is very similar to Novomatic’s Book of Ra Deluxe but with better graphics and animations. The game is a very volatile one with a maximum win per spin being 5,000 times your stake – this is a whopping £500,000 playing at maximum stakes.
I think Book of Dead will prove to be a very popular slot due to its high variance and similarity to the land based classic from Novomatic – the big wins will come from the free spins feature but you need to be patient and expect plenty of dry spells. If you like the theme, Play ‘N Go also offer you Riches of Ra and Leprechaun Goes Egypt.
