They have been the subject of countless movies, books, TV shows etc throughout the years so it makes perfect sense that a slot game would come along and join in on the fun. And with the new Tom Cruise film ‘The Mummy’ hitting screens it would be a safe enough bet that the genre will get a re-awakening. So it’s the perfect time to go and have a look at Play'n GO’s Book of Dead.

About the Game


Book of Dead is a 10 payline slot game developed and hosted by Play’n GO casino. As a result of being on the Play'n GO software, the game is extremely accessible being available on a wide range of the very best online gaming sites including Bet365.

The design of the game is nothing short of wonderful, the ornate gold trimmings and sandstone finishes on the edges really help to bring across the theme of ancient Egypt and the subsequent adventuring and archaeological digs that have captivated the world since. The game features daring adventurer Rich Wild, a sort of Indiana Jones/Lara Croft analogue, an archaeologist who is seeking to make a big score in the tombs of Ancient Egypt, much like how the player is!

The Gameplay


With 5 reels and 10 paylines, the opportunities for wins are fantastic. The value of the coins ranges from 0.01 to 1 and the number of coins varies from 1 to 5.

If you wish you can hit the ‘Bet Max’ button which will allow you to set the maximum wager and ‘Autoplay which will allow the slots to spin automatically for a set amount of times.

The ‘Scatter’ and ‘Wild’ symbol in this game is one and the same, they are both the book symbol. When the book is a scatter and three of these land at the same time on the reel it gives the player the huge bonus of 10 free spins. When the book is the ‘Wild’ symbol it stands in for any symbol and will act as a bridging gap between other identical winning symbols so that you can win a lot easier.

When the player activates the Free Spins bonus one of the symbols on the reels is chosen arbitrarily to become an expanding symbol for the duration of the round. To make the symbol grow larger and larger you have to win prizes for getting winning combinations in your spin This symbol will grow in size up to the point where it covers three positions on the reel. The expanded symbol will let you win big as they don’t even need to be next to each other in order to pay out on a win.
