Who doesn’t love an Indiana Jones style adventure and Play N’Go’s Book of Dead slot certainly gives you all the adventurous excitement, without actually having to get your hands dirty.
So where did the name the Book of dead come from? The story goes that the Book of dead was a collection of manuscripts put together by a group of priests in Ancient Egypt. These writings were aimed at helping the dead with their journey through the underworld to their place of rest.
Thankfully you don’t have to face any real life zombies and this slot lets you help the intrepid adventurer Rich Wilde on his mission to find treasures. You may have encountered Rich Wilde before, as this brave soul has been the hero in other Mr Green slots such as; Pearls of India and Aztec Idols. So you’re in safe hands with Rich Wilde, as he’s been around the adventurous block!
Before you start, you need to decide on your budget and desired amount of lines to play. On the bottom far left of the slot, you can decide on the value of the coin you will stake (which is between 0.01 and 1.0). Next to that, you’ll want to select how many coins you’ll be playing (which is between 1-5). To the right of that, you can decide the amount of lines you want to play (between 1-10).
Obviously, the more lines you play, the more chances you have of hitting the winning combinations but you’re spending more per line, per play. Play around with these amounts till you find your sweet spot and you can see the chosen amount where it says ‘Bet’. If you’re feeling lady luck is on your side, put your high roller hat on and play the house maximum by pressing the Bet Max button.
When you land the different symbols in winning combinations, you can check their worth by looking at the Paytable. You can set the slot to play automatically for you, staking a certain amount for a set amount of spins through the autoplay button. It will stop if you win or lose a certain amount, or if the bonus feature is won.
This 5×3 reel slot features cool symbols inspired by Ancient Egypt. If you’re lucky, you may come across valuable artifacts such as; the impressive mask of Tutankhamen, a hybrid black dog and half man!? Or the valuable blue and gold bird. Playing cards will fill in the gaps like seen in many games.
If you’re super super lucky, you may land one of the two most important symbols – the man himself Rich Wilde or the Book of dead symbol. The handsome Rich Wilde will not only brighten up your slot reel, he’ll bring you the most fortune by way of three in a row, which can be diagonally or horizontally.
Of course for the most excitement to be had, you’re looking to spin the scared Book of Dead symbol onto your reel. It acts as a wild and substitute for all other symbols and the game will choose for you the most profitable way to use it. It also triggers the scatter and will lead onto the games bonus feature.
Land yourself three Book of Dead symbols and you’ll activate the free spin feature. If you spin the Book of Dead symbol in the first two reels, you’ll be kept on the edge of your seat with the third reel highlighted as you wait anxiously for the third to come in. This is the only bonus feature of the slot but is enough as it has great possibilities to win big.
Prior to the start of the free spins, you’ll be allocated an expanding scatter symbol. As we know – Rich Wilde is the main man and the one you want to pray you get. Alternatively, the Egyptian artifacts are the next most valuable and will get you a good return.
As your free spins take place, you’re hoping to get two or more of your assigned expanding scatter symbols. If you get the two, they will expand and take over the whole screen and you’ll hit 5000 times your bet if Rich Wilde is smiling back at you!
The Book of dead slot is a volatile slot. This means that even if you hit the free spin feature, you may have to be patient to get the big wins. What you can be sure of though is that you’ll most probably be cashing in a decent sum if you hit one of the valuable scatter symbols and could even take home a huge payout when the time is right.
Here’s where you can choose to be brave or be cautious! When you hit a winning combination, you get given the option to try to double or quadruple what you’ve won or put it in the bank. If you choose to gamble you get to play an extra side game, where you’ll first be asked to decide if the next card turned is red or black. Choose right and you’ll double your win and you can even get really ambitious and try to select what suit the next card will be. If you get that right, your intuition will lead you to a quadruple times win of your original win!
