Egyptian themes whether they are in movies or games remain one of the most popular and this is not so surprising as Egypt has conjured up images of romance, excitement and adventure.
Both the movie industry and the gaming industry have made use of our fascination with Egypt, it’s civilisation, Gods and mystery producing unforgettable moments on both sides. No wonder then that the gambling industry has also used the Egyptian theme for some of the most popular slots games around.
Of course, some games are better than others and perhaps the best of a great group of Egyptian themed slots games is Book of Dead from Play ‘n GO which delves into the theme of Ancient Egypt perfectly.
This 5 reels 10 pay-line video slot lets players stake from 10p up to £100 if you play on all pay lines and you can stake as little as 1p if you do not play on all the available pay lines which means that it will suit most budgets, in fact, Book of Dead can be found at Fruityking.co.uk where you can enjoy 20 free spins as part of your welcome offer without using your own money at all, a great way to see if its the game for you.
What Makes Book of Dead a Cut Above the Rest?
Well for one it has a great return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.21% and you can choose to stake on just one or all of the available pay lines making Book of Dead totally user-friendly, but what really makes it a cut above the other Ancient Egyptian slots games are the exceptional graphics and animations which provide a far better immersive experience and looks equally amazing on your lappy, tablet or mobile.
The Book of Dead takes you on a journey into the mythical underworld of Ancient Egypt. Players encounter Anubis and Osiris before they step back into the light and the reels are set within an ancient burial chamber – spooky, nerve-tingling at its best!
The Book of Dead Symbols and Special Feature
There are 11 different symbols that appear on the reels of Book of Dead with 9 normal symbols and 1 free spin Scatter symbol which is the Book of Dead. This symbol also acts as the wild of the game.
The Book of Dead only has one bonus feature and that is the Free Spins feature where a randomly chosen symbol is chosen to act as an expanding symbol. The expanding symbol can lead to multiple reels displaying the same symbol for some massive cash wins.
When the Book symbol appears as the scatter in the Book of Dead 3 or more are required anywhere on the reels to trigger the bonus feature (free spins) which can lead to a payout of either 2,20 or 200 x your the total stake made.
Once the feature has been triggered players will find themselves in a sacred chamber that rewards them with 10 free spins which can be multiplied by a further 10 free spins.
The special expanding symbol when it appears on a few reels can lead to some big wins and if you are lucky enough to fill 5 reels with the same symbol you are in for a treat. Rich Wilde (think Indiana Jones) is the best to land and if you land him as the high value symbol the maximum jackpot is in sight which is 5kx your stake.
There have been many Book of Dead clones floating about but nothing has yet to compare to this great game which has become the flagship title for its developers Play ‘n GO.
