Adopt the life of a great explorer as you travel to Egypt in search of the legendary Book of the Dead. Make your way through the trap-filled pyramids and uncover their ancient secrets.

Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, as the game is formally called, features very simple visuals. The background consists of a static image of a few columns leading to the entrance of a temple or pyramid while the reels are encased in a border featuring Egyptian patterns. The logo of the game is found at the top of the screen dominating the rest of the landscape around it.

As for the mechanics, the game follows the classic reel-after-reel action without implementing any innovative elements. As expected, winning symbols become animated and trigger an audio effect.

How to Play Book of Dead

The game consists of 3 rows and 5 reels with 10 non-fixed paylines. The controls are found below the main interface allowing the player to select the preferred bet size, enable the autoplay function or simply spin the reels. More options are available through the in-game menu.

Bets start as low as $0.01 (one payline, minimum coin size) and can go as high as $50 (ten paylines, maximum coin size) per spin. Book of Dead is a high variance slot with a hit rate of around 30%. This means you won’t be getting winning spins often but you can win up to 5,000x your bet.

Moving on, the game features 5 low-paying and 4 high-paying symbols. The first come in the form of card values 10-A while the latter are represented by the sign of the god Ra, Anubis, the pharaoh, and last but not least, the game’s protagonist, Rich Wilde.

The special symbols are:

  • Wild/Scatter – The slot’s wild and scatter symbol is none other than the book of dead. 3 or more scatters trigger the free spins feature. The wild substitutes for any symbol and since it is also a scatter, it pays anywhere on the reels.

Due to the game’s high volatility, the number of bonus features is limited and as you might have expected, the bigger wins hinge on the free spins. But the free spins aren’t as simple as you think. Let’s check them out!

Game Rules

Free Spins with Expanding Symbol

Landing 3 or more scatter symbols will trigger the feature awarding you 10 free spins. Before the feature begins, one of the slot’s symbols will be randomly chosen. During the spins, if this symbol appears enough times to complete at least one payline (usually on 3 reels) then it will expand to cover that entire reel.

In case you’re wondering how profitable that can be, let us just say that during our test the randomly chosen symbol was the card value J, a low-paying one, and we won 100x our bet size. Also, we triggered the free spin feature once again during the feature which is indeed possible.
