Where to play?
Play N’ Go has often been slated for releasing games with dull graphics and to put it blunt boring themes. Luckily with its newest slots this is no longer the case since it upped the ante considerably.
The latest Play N’ Go video slots to hit the iGaming scene is the Book of Dead. I know that this one will definitely be a hit with fans who enjoy playing games with Ancient Egyptian themes. According to Wikipedia The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text. Written by priest it contains numerous magic spells that accompanied the dead on their journey to the afterlife.
The first installment of the game (Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols) took us deep into the Amazonian forests. The game continues in the same vein. Our intrepid archaeologist Rich Wilde is back with a vengeance. Must admit the chap looks pretty well for being in his 40’s. Who knows maybe he found the fountain of youth.
This time round he heads off to Egypt the land of the Pharaohs in pursuit of the elusive Book of Dead. I must point out it’s not the most original theme for a slots but who cares. Book of Dead comes with 10 paylines and 5 reels. It offers a maximum non-progressive jackpot payout of 5,000 times your stake or an incredible win of £500,000. The average return to the player (RTP) is 95.6%. I’ve played the game with a bankroll of £50 and consider it a high variance game. The slots pays out on average every 5 to 7 spins but pays relatively well.
Symbols that feature on the reels are The Book of the Dead, Rich Wilde, scatters, wild substitutions, card symbols from 10 to Ace, Pharaoh’s Mask and the rugged-looking Rich Wilde.
The game can be played on all devices: desktops and mobile phones like Androids, Samsung Galaxy S7, tablets, iPhones and iPads. Before you enter the realm of Rich Wilde you must select the right coin denomination first. Bets can be placed from £$0.10 up to £$100 per spin. As you spin the reels you’ll encounter ancient Egyptian mythological gods like Osiris and Anubis.
Symbols that offer the highest payouts are Rich Wilde and the Golden Book (The Book of Dead).
Wild: The Golden Book symbol is both the wild and the scatter. When it appears in a winning combination it replaces all the other symbols adjacent to it. It’s also responsible for triggering the free spins bonus mode.
Free Spins: When three or more scatters appears any place on an active payline the Free Spins game is activated. For your trouble you will receive 10 free spins. But, the game offers another little surprise. If you manage to land three more scatter Book icons on the reels you’ll receive an additional 10 free spins. More to the point, if the expanding wild symbols pop up in conjunction with the free spins you’ll win a substantial amount of cash. I cannot help but notice that Book of Dead is quite similar to Novomatic’s Book of Ra Deluxe. The only difference is that the game sports improved graphics and a far better maximum jackpot win.
Play N Go’s Book of Dead has all the ingredients I like in a slots: top paying jackpot, wild substitutions, scatters and free spins. Just keep in mind that it does not part ways with its treasures easily. I played the game with a bankroll of £50 but the slots gulped it up pretty quick since it’s a high variance slots. It requires a sturdy bankroll and lots of patience. One thing I’ve also noted is that it’s quite difficult to trigger the free spins mode.
