And the Book of Dead slot is one of those games Wombat Fans!

Slot Facts

Book of Dead is a 5 reel, 3 row online slot game from Play’n GO based on an ancient Egyptian theme. It’s Rich Wilde’s second adventure, but this is probably Play’n GO’s most popular slot. There are 10 paylines in this highly volatile slot game.

The top jackpot is 5000x your stake and features include Expanding Symbols, Free Spins, a Gamble Game, plus Scatters and Wilds. The game launched in January 2016.


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! It happens to be one of the heaviest played games in many countries. In New Zealand, it takes the top spot, for example!

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 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 Slot 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.

book of dead symbolYou can play from 0.10 to 50.00 per spin (all 10 lines covered)  in your local currency.

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.

The game’s lower-paying symbols are the card-themed symbols, that slots players will be familiar with. However, Book of the Dead provides the conventional symbols with a new coat of paint in this slot instalment.

Varying in vibrant colours, the 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace all come with glossy golden borders and accents, each of them having some form of trinket embedded in them. These form winning combinations when successfully landing 3, 4 or 5 adjacent symbols, with pay outs raging between 0.5x and 15x your stake.

Next comes the higher paying Osiris, God of the Sky Horus and God of the Afterlife Anubis symbols. Unlike the other card symbols present on the reels, these symbols pay out winning combinations with just 2 or more adjacent symbols. These can pay out anywhere between 0.5x your original stake and 200x when successfully landing 5 of the golden Osiris symbols, which is the highest paying out of the 3 Egyptian gods.

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.

In addition to this, successfully landing combinations of 3, 4 or 5 of these golden book Wild symbols will award you 2x, 20x, or 200x your original stake, respective of the number of symbols landed.

Mobile Compatibility

Book of the Dead is compatible with most devices and available to play on phones, tablets and computers.

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. When successfully landing one of these symbols as part of a winning combination, this symbol will expand to cover the whole reel.

As a result of this, there are more opportunities to land additional winning combinations. Even better, triggering the expanding symbols doesn’t require any of these symbols to be on adjacent reels, you only need to land a specific number (in most cases 3 or more) in order to trigger a win.

You could make 8x or more on your original stake when matching symbols on the reels. During the Bonus Free Spins round, landing an additional 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels can re-trigger the bonus round and allow you to win more Free Spins.

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.

Gamble Feature

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! This feature may not be available in all jurisdictions.

Who is Rich Wilde?

Rich Wilde first made an appearance in Slotworld in the adventure game: Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols. Since then, he’s been to India,  Egypt (in Book of Dead) and Greece (Shield of Athena).

He’s a busy man! He has still made time to have a daughter though: Cat Wilde. She stars in her own range of slots, adventuring like her Dad of course.


So, does it live up to the hype? The answer is: YES YES YES!
Riche Wilde and the Book of the Dead slot is a simple yet volatile game that really can deliver wins.

With a wide array of colourful and golden-infused pay symbols, a polished set of reels, and an intriguing setting, Book of Dead proves why it is a fan favourite and one of Play’n GO’s finest slot instalments to date.

You’ll need a bit of patience to get into the bonus but it’s worth the wait…
