The Book of Dead is a classic, so lets take a look at the features that have seen it stand the test of time and other book games have come and gone, whilst this classic remains as popular today as it was 8 years ago
Theme - Ancient Egypt
Our adventurer host is Rich Wilde. He is accompanied on the board by other Ancient Egyptian symbols ranging from the usual 10, J, Q, K, A on the low-value spectrum through to The Phoenix, Anubis, a Pharaoh and Rich Wilde too for premium high value symbols.
The Low Value symbols must make at least a line of three reels for a win, whilst the Premiums need match only 2
The board is made up of 5x3 reels with Scatters able to appear anywhere but only once per reel
Draw yourself back here from those slots with huge numbers of pay lines, as Book of Dead slot comes in at the lower end of the spectrum with 10 paylines in total. That seems mean to begin with but bear in mind as mentioned earlier, just 2 premium symbols will produce a win.
The RTP is dependent on the casino, not many people realise that you may be getting a lower RTP on the same game depending on which casino you are playing.
We have done that work for you and have found that some casinos have Gonzo's Quest Megways set as low as 90%, whereas at SLOTNITE or DreamVegas you can play at above-average 94.99% RTP
Players of all staking levels can enjoy Rich Wilde's Book of Dead as at the low end, you can play for 10p a spin, right through the obscene £100 a spin level
The calculated maximum multiplier of the game is x5000- Not the highest Max win of any slot you'll find but a very nice win nonetheless and theoretically easier to hit than the huge jackpot max wins we see elsewhere
Good Max Win of 5,000x
Get a couple of retriggers and full-screen the top symbol in free spins and you should be on your way to a 5000x max win - Very nice
Scatters also act as wilds, so bonus baiting with 2 of the 3 required is not always a bad thing
Conveniently so as not to confuse the Book of Dead players, the Scatter Symbols are book Symbols, Easy to remember.
You require three or more symbols to trigger the free spins and special symbol selection, and love them or hate them, the bonus bait, slow spin, appears when you have two of the three and are waiting for one.
Agonizing when it goes through the reel and finished one below, but, they scatter also act as wilds, and can enhance the reels for some good full line wins at times.
In any case, they are always wild, so they are always a welcome sight.
Free Spins Feature
There is no huge range of features in this slot game, it is pretty simple, so when it comes to bonus games and features, we have free spins and that is where it starts and ends.
It is possible to retrigger free spins an unlimited amount of times, however, where greater winning chances are created.
When the free spins have triggered the pages of the Book of Dead turn showing low and high-value symbols on each page. The page-turning completes and whichever symbol is selected is your special gold-expanding symbol for the duration of the free spins.
When the special gold symbol lands on any row, when all reels have completed the spin, they can expand to fill the entire reel and pay 10 lines regardless of connection or not.
Special symbols, as in the base game pair for pairs and above and low-value symbols, require three or more.
The ultimate, of course, is a full screen, which pays handsomely for premium symbols and pretty well for normal symbols, with 10 x full line payouts.
Did not quite get the full screen of Aces here, but 4 of a kind pays very nicely for any symbol, even low value ones.
Free Spins Retrigger
Free Spins can retrigger as the book scatter symbol remains in the game during free spins and acts again as Wild or Scatter if three or more land.
Retriggering free spins also retrigger special symbol selection which is ADDED the original, so now you are playing with more than one Gold symbol per free spins and can gain multiple symbol wins
There is no Jackpot feature on Book of Dead, but the Max win is a very handsome 5000x
