Book of Dead Slot Background

The Book of the Dead is a collection of ancient Egyptian manuscripts which were primarily intended to assist a dead person’s journey through the Underworld to the afterlife. Quite how this inspired the creation of a video slot remains to be seen. Anyhow, the developers came up with ‘Book of Dead’, and decided to drop ‘the’ in the title, which was apparently surplus to requirements. It’s the third game in a series of Play’n Go mobile slots following the popular titles, Aztec Idols and Pearls of India.

Released in January 2016, Book of Dead’s theme isn’t exactly ground-breaking, with Egyptian-style games such as Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile and, ahem, Book of Ra already doing the rounds online. The latter title in particular, shares more than a few similarities with Book of Dead and not just in name. But that’s another story.

Slot Features

Book of Dead is a five-reel, three-row slot with 10 adjustable pay-lines. In keeping with its Egyptian theme, the game area is set in an ancient hall with towering sandstone columns. While the images look clean and slick, the animations for in-game events aren’t very detailed. The soundtrack is also understated and repetitive, with very little variation during gameplay. Disappointingly, the developers have also included the now standardised playing card format for the reels. In spite of this, the game does feature a few symbols which reflect the pyramid exploration theme…sort of. They are:

  • Rich Wilde
  • Pharaoh
  • Anubis
  • Osiris
  • Eagle
  • Book Scatter/Wilde

The symbols for Book of Dead follow a left to right format only. For higher paying symbols, you’ll need to land at least three for a win. To be rewarded for lower value symbols, it’s two. Naturally, the most valuable symbol is Rich Wilde who can award up to 25,000 cons on a single pay-line and up to 250,000 on all 10 lines for each spin. Portraits of the Gods Anubis and Osiris are the next most valuable symbols after our fabled explorer/plunderer.

The book symbol is both the Scatter and the Wild. As the Wild, it replaces any symbol and can help you to land a winning combination. As the Scatter, the book triggers 10 free spins which are activated when a minimum of three of them land anywhere on the reels simultaneously.
