The Book of Dead online slot is a 2016 Play’n Go game that was obviously inspired by one of the most popular slots of all time, Novomatic’s Book of Ra. Art, as it turns out, really imitates art, which may be distasteful for some people, but it’s nonetheless fun in this case. The Book of Dead slot will put you in the shoes of everyone’s favorite adventurer Rich Wilde, this time on a mission to find the mysterious Book of the Dead in the depths of ancient Egyptian catacombs.
There are many reasons why Book of Dead has topped the list of most popular online slots for years. In typical Play’n Go fashion, it has striking visuals and high-quality symbols on the reels. The animations are excellent, the slot has a pretty familiar interface, and all of it is matched by an upbeat soundtrack.
In terms of gameplay, Indian players will be glad to know that Book of Dead has been designed with mobile phones in mind. You can play it on the go anytime and anywhere and try to hit that massive €500,000 jackpot. The slot is of high variance and comes with a RTP of 96.21%, which is just over the industry average. Thanks to the exciting gameplay and impressive graphics, there’s no question that you’ll enjoy this wild adventure.
The Book of Dead online slot has 5 reels and a total of 10 adjustable betways. The slot is playable from 0.01 coins per line up to 100. You can set the number of active paylines between 1 and 10. If you want a chance at earning that jackpot, though, you’ll need to max things out.
Once you spin the reels, you’re taken directly to the ancient Egyptian underworld where deities such as Ra, Anubis, and Osiris grace the reels. All the symbols are inspired by ancient Egyptian mythology, of course, fitting in with the theme. There are also those typical card suit symbols which pay the lowest amount.
The highest paying symbol in the game is Rich Wilde himself. Land the Indiana Jones-wannabe on the reels five times for a prize worth 5,000 coins. Osiris comes next in terms of value – five-of-a-kind will land you a 2,000-coin win.
The book of the dead symbol is the game’s wild and scatter. All wins involving a scatter are multiplied by your total bet and added to payline wins. When this symbol acts as a wild, it replaces other symbols to form winning combos. When it acts as a scatter, it triggers the bonus round of 10 free spins.
The main highlight of the game is a 10 free spins bonus round where you can win up to 250,000 coins. It is triggered by three scatters anywhere on the reels and plays out like all bonus free spins rounds except for one difference – a random symbol is expanded on one reel before the bonus round begins. The symbol must be on an active payline but doesn’t need to be adjacent.
Three more books on the reels during the round will grant you another 10 free spins. If you’re lucky enough for the expanding symbol to be a high-paying one that covers more than one reel, you’re in for a stunning win in the Book of Dead’s bonus round.
The Book of Dead online slot by Play’n Go may have copied Novomatic’s Book of Ra, but it’s still a high-quality game that offers a massive jackpot. The graphics and gameplay are impressive, and the expanding symbol during the free spins bonus round keeps things exciting.
If you want to go on an adventure like no other, the Book of Dead slot should be your choice.
