Book of Dead Slot
The wombat says: Every once in a while, a slot comes along that’s so famous that its reputation precedes it (think Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest).
And the Book of Dead slot is one of these games, Wombat fans!
From Play n Go who also make the Troll Hunters slot (a personal favourite by the way) it’s also one of the most popular games online, so, imagine how excited this wombat was to be personally invited to play!
We haven’t been this stoked since Australia won the Rugby world cup in 1999…
So why is this game such a corker? Well, let’s head into the mythical underworld of Ancient Egypt with intrepid adventurer Riche Wilde to find out…
Look and Feel
The background of the Book of Dead Slot overlooks an Egyptian temple, with hieroglyphics and age-old carvings on the pillars. The icons are done up to be gilded and gleaming, while the tunes that accompany your spins are full of lyres, harps and flutes – you know, the usual stuff you hear when you’re ransacking undiscovered riches in an ancient tomb…
As far as the theme goes, Play N’GO have come up triumphs; this slot is well designed and outdoes many of the other Egyptian slots we’ve seen. We’d go as far as to say that it hits the heights of the Ozzy Osbourne slot and other classics from NetEnt. It’s a looker alright!
Book of Dead Game Play
Book of Dead has 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 pay-lines. That´s short of the average we´d say which is around 25 on games like the Treasures of Lion City slot and others.
You can play from 0.10 to 100.00 per spin in your local currency – which means there’s something for all of you.
There are 11 different symbols on the reels. The highest value symbol is Rich Wilde himself (what a handsome fella he is), and if you land 5x of these bad boys on a pay-line you could scoop a big 500x your stake win – if you’re playing at max bet, that’s a big win.
Next comes Tutankhamun, God of the Sky Horus, God of the Afterlife Anubis plus the usual playing cards 10, J Q, K & A.
The golden Book of Dead icon acts as both the Wild and Scatter symbol in the slot – and when it appears as a Wild, it can substitute for any other reel symbols to help you form winning combinations.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Land 3x or more of the golden Book of Dead symbols and you’ll set off the Free Spins feature.
Next, you’ll get up 10x, 20x or 30x free spins BUT (and here’s the very best bit) before you start, one of the reel symbols is chosen at random and will become a special expanding icon – that will take over other icons when it lands. You can easily make 8x or more matching symbols on the reels.
There are wins of up to 5,000 times your stake on offer here. You heard us correctly Wombat fans – 5000x your bet. Which makes this game very special indeed.
Finally, get your furry mitts on another 3x gold Scatters and you’ll dig up a further 10 free spins.
Fancy a bet-within-a bet? Then wager your latest win by clicking on the ‘Gamble’ button below the reels. Double or quadruple your last pay out by guessing the colour or suit of the next card drawn. But play carefully slot lovers: you could lose the lot!
So, does it live up to the hype? The answer is: YES YES YES!
Book of the Dead slot is a simple yet volatile game that really does deliver wins. You’ll need a bit of patience to get into the bonus but it’s worth the wait…
