Book of dead by Play’n Go is the third mobile slot in the series featuring the
character Rich Wilde. This brave guy was previously seen in the slot “Rich Wilde and
The Aztec Idols” and The “Rich Wilde and the Pearls of India” slot game. After chasing idols in
the jungle of Amazon and exploring in Asia, he is now adventuring in Egypt. To those
who are not so familiar with the history of Egypt, The Book of the Dead is an ancient
Egyptian funerary text consisting of a number of magic spells intended to assist a
dead person´s journey through the underworld and into the afterlife.
Book of Dead is a decently designed video slot released in January 2016. However,
it might seem surprisingly familiar to you, because it resembles the Book of Ra Deluxe by Novomatic very much when it comes to the game features and the whole idea. Maybe it is Play’n Go’s strategy to gain customers or maybe Rich Wilde simply wanted to conquer pyramids, who knows.
Book of dead gives you a fun times with the colourful design and good game features. This online slot has 10 pay-lines and 5 reels promising chances of big wins. It offers a non-progressive jackpot payout of 5,000
times your stake or a win as big as £500,000.
