The Wombat says: This Wombat has spent a lot of time in the North of late, spinning on Viking-themed games and generally feeling glum with all that wintry weather. So, we decided it was time to head further South and warm our slot-loving paws in the desert heat of Giza.
Pack your bags, we’re off to Ancient Egypt once more with Play’n GO, in Legacy Of Dead Slot – the much-awaited sequel to Book Of Dead. After that you can always head to Greece on Legends of Olympia if you are enjoying the sun!
Look and Feel
It’s time to light your flaming torch once more and head deep into the tombs of ancient Egypt – yes, the graphics here are pretty good by all accounts. And that´s me saying that having just played the Mercy of the Gods slot which is another Egyptian looker.
Your reels are set in tomb, with walls lit up by oil lamps and ancient hieroglyphics in the background. They are also framed in gold and blue.
As for the soundtrack to your spins: expect some dramatic music combined with clunks and chimes as the symbols land. A quick mention about the reel icons; they’re done up with heaps of detail and are very nice to look at.
Legacy of Dead Slot Game Play
Play’n GO’s Legacy of Dead slot comes with 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 pay-lines. That´s half the number of the Solar Queen slot – another Egyptian outing – so that should give you an idea of how this game plays.
You can place your bets from 0.10 up to 100 per go in you favourite currency.
Your reel icons are represented by Anubis, Horus, Tutankhamun and the golden eagle, plus the standard 10, J, Q, K and A playing cards will make up your lower value symbols on the pay-table.
Anubis is the Big Daddy icon on the reels and this will award you 160x your bet if you manage to get 5 in a row.
To finish off the pay-table, the Egyptian Burial Chamber symbol plays two roles in this game, both wild and scatter,
As wild, it will substitute for all other reel icons to help make extra wins per, as the Scatter, it’s the key to the Free Spins round.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Just like its predecessor, the Book of Dead, this slot has one bonus feature and it’s all about stacked symbols.
Land 3x or more of Wild Scatters on the reels and you will trigger off this cool bonus game. Next you’ll be awarded 10 Free Spins and a symbol will be chosen at random to act as a special expanding symbol. When these land and they will expand to cover the entire reel, giving you some chunky old wins.
You can also re-trigger the feature, and if you do, another expanding Symbol will be chosen at random. This process can be repeated until all 9 symbols become special and stacked. EEEKKK!

The Gamble round can be played up to five times in a row. Good luck!
