Ghost Of Dead
What’s The Deal?
Drum roll please…. Ghost of Dead slot is the latest sequel in Play’n GO’s Book Of Dead series. Although this time around it’s an undead Pharaoh that will be doing the haunting, instead of a wrathful Egyptian God.
Play ´n Go are those Swedish slot wizards behind games like the Loki´s Fortune slot and Rise of Olympus in case you didn’t know.
This release comes with all the standard Book Of… features but also includes a brand new bonus called Ghost Spins that I’m quite keen to get my furry mitts on. The game also promises a max win of 5,000 x your bet which is the same as in the original slot. OK, so that doesn’t hit the heights of the Legion X slot, but then the 31,000x win is very rare on that game.
Let’s fire it up!
Graphics & Theme
The action is set in a dusty creepy crypt, with the odd torch flickering now and then, while your reels are framed in the traditional blue and gold.
The theme music is eerie too, and fits perfectly with the atmosphere.
Would I enter this tomb on my own? Not on your nelly, Wombat fans. It’s as scary as Mrs Wombat before she’s had her morning coffee…
Time to take a look at the reel icons; the premium paying symbols in Ghost of Dead slot are; the Pharaoh’s burial mask, the scarab, the cobra and the ankh. These are worth up to 1000x your bet for a 5 in a row combo.
Meanwhile, the standard 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards make up the lower value icons and are done up nicely with gold details.
The Anubis Canopus is the game’s wild scatter icon.
Ghost of Dead Slot Game Play
Ghost of Dead slot comes with 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 pay-lines – so a traditional ‘Book Of’ set up. Bets range from 0.10 up to a maximum of 100.00 per spin, while the volatility here is in the high category.
Play ‘n GO also do a number of Cluster Pays games of course, and example being the Alice Cooper slot that sits on a 5×5 grid, but I digress.
Ghost of Dead Slot Bonus Features
This base game bonus is a new one, but will keep your balance ticking over nicely. The Ghost Spins bonus can be triggered randomly on each spin, and will award you a Respin plus with an Expanding Symbol to bump your wins. Bonza.
By landing 3x of the scatters anywhere on the reels, you will trigger off the Awaken Free Spins. You’ll now get 10 free goes, plus the chance to choose which symbol will become ‘special’. It will land and expand across the full reel whenever it hits.
The round can also be reactivated by landing 3x more scatter icons.
Awakened Free Spins
If you trigger the bonus round with blue spectral scatter icons rather than the standard version, you’ll receive an enhanced free spins round with 2x special expanding symbols… EEK!
Feeling lucky? Then click on the gamble button after a winning spin to really get things going. Manage to pick the colour or suit of a face-down card and you will double or quadruple your cash!
But beware, because if you guess it wrong, you will lose it all.
Ghost Of Dead slot is a good follow-on from the original game, and we are big fans of the Ghost Spins. They help prevent the game’s scorching volatility from burning a huge whole in your pocket.
Original it’s not, but if it ain’t broke why fix it?
So spin in Ancient Egypt today!
