Book of Dead Slot

Book of Dead is a 10-payline video slot, running on the Play’n GO software platform. Inspired by an Ancient Egypt culture the game presents Rich Wild and his adventures. The slot has an incredible design with 5 brown reels set against the golden ornate frame. Players are welcome to try the game here for free, or visit any of the listed Play’n GO Casinos to play for real money.


Before you head over to Egypt, you are advised to set your bets first. There are up to 10 “Lines” players can bet on. “Coin value” ranges from 0.01 to 1, whereas the number of “Coins” differs from 1 to 5. The “Bet Max” option allows players to set the maximum wager. “Au­top­lay­” enables reels to turn for a selected number of times without interruption. Once you are ready, simply hit “Spin”.


The Book symbol is both the Scatter and the Wild. When it acts as the Wild, it is a replacement for any symbol and helps players form a winning combination. As the Scatter symbol, the Book triggers 10 Free Spins feature, which is activated when at least 3 Scatters land simultaneously anywhere on the reels.  


Before the Free Spins feature starts, an ordinary symbol is randomly chosen to act as a special expanding symbol during the entire round. Once players win their prizes for regular winning combinations, the special symbol may expand to cover all three positions on its reels. The special symbol will expand only when additional prizes can be won on the active paylines. Expanded symbols do not need to appear next to each other to form a winning combination.

Book of Dead is a very powerful video slot game from Play `N Go. I play this game from time to time and the outcome is always different like with any other game. This slot is set in Ancient Egypt with special features and expanding wilds in order to expand your wins too.

Book of Dead is a 5 reels and 10 pay lines video slot game. There were times when I was winning a lot in this game and there were times when I was losing my bankroll very fast. This is a high variance slot so if you want to win big you need to risk a lot. This game is very similar with the very popular slot from Novomatic Book of Ra but I would say that this one has at least better graphics.

In the Book of Dead video slot game the book symbol is acting as wild and as scatter too. When it acts as wild it substitutes for all the other symbols in order to help you in landing more winning combinations. If you land 3 or more symbols you activate the free spins feature. The last time I played this slot I thought that I will lose all my money and I will not manage to trigger the free spins. All the time I was getting 2 book symbols and they were on the last reels so they were not helping my balance at all. I got 10 free spins after an hour playing I think and I won only 20 x bet. Luckily I had some money on my balance from other games that I have been playing before I switched to Book of Dead. All in all the highest amount that I have won during this game was 950 x bet. I had 4 pharaohs on an active pay line and some other symbols too, and for this reason I play this game, hoping to land a win even better than this one.

My first experiences with this game weren't the best, I got a bunch of free spins on the game from a handful of my favourite casinos and had almost entirely dead spins. As a result I forgot about the game for a while until I received 15 free spins from Videoslots a couple of months back when I had much more success. It had been a while since I had my last five scatters when five books dropped onto the screen awarding a very reasonable 200x my free spin 0.10 stake on just my second spin!

Finishing up my free spins with a little over 35.00 I decided to continue playing the game and hit the free spins round for a second time shortly after. This time I was fortunate enough to get a decent boost from the expanding wild feature which chooses a random symbol to expand across the reels when it forms part of a winning combination. If the "Riche Wild" symbol is chosen and expands to fill the whole screen you can win the games jackpot of 2500x your stake, I wasn't quite as lucky as that but still finished up my 15 free spins worth just £1.50 with a final balance of almost £100.00! As videoslots have no restrictions or wagering requirements on their free spins I was able to withdraw my balance immediately and use it to participate in a welcome bonus at another casino. What an awesome result!

Sure, this ancient egyptian theme has been done to death in the slot world - since IGT's Cleopatra it has become an extremely popular basis for slot games and that trend has continued in style into the on-line slot world. I wouldn't say this is the best looking egyptian themed slot game and in fact I would have to say I probably prefer the excellent Cleopatra II over this game despite my lucky free spins win, but it's a high quality game nonetheless and the 5000 coin payoff for a five of a kind of the top symbol is a welcome find with all the bad paytables appearing in on-line slots these days.

More paylines might mean you see wins more often but Book of Dead shows there's a whole lot of life left in the old 9/10 line format in 2016. This isn't one to rival Dead or Alive, but it's a solid slot and one that I'll definitely be playing a lot more in the future.

At first i though i will like this slot because of my success i had on the famous Book of Ra slot. Now given that this slot is a clone of the Book of Ra, i though my time will be great on this slot but i think this slot is very bad, even worst than Play'n Go latest release"Hugo" and you can imagine how much empty spins you have on Hugo.
Now as much as I like Play'n Go, this is definitely not a book that I like and will not read it at all. 10 paylines, 5 reels says it all, very difficult to win. Thinking how difficult it is to win in Pimped, Royal Masquerade, this book of dead is worst.

If you love the slot Book of Ra then you definitely will not like love this slot as this book is completely dead. Dead spins, dead wins, dead money, losing money. Now the Book of Ra base game does not pay a lot but you definitely make most of your money back during free spins. Rich Wilde is the highest paying symbol, not sure why and then he has his Egyptian era symbols like pharaoh, the idol and the bird type of symbol. The rest are the low paying deck of cards, which is the only thing that comes in a 3 of a kind or 5 of a kind if you lucky.

Now the dead free spins feature is triggered when the book of dead appears. The book also act as wild, but if free spins are triggered, those 3 dead books hardly land in a winning combo. You will get 10 free spins with a special scattered symbol. You know during base game you see deck of cards symbols 90% of the time, but during free spins you will see 2 or 3 of them on the reels. If it is really your day you will see 4 of kind maybe 5. Even so the wins are not even great either. I have only manage to trigger free spins once and that was with A symbol, but man I tell you I won 470 coins during free spins.

Now give me an address so I can go and find this Rich Wilde character because all he does is take my money with this deadly game. You can try this game but be warned, unless you have about $1000 to throw away be my guest.

Well PlayNGo provider could make a bit more effort and make this game a little bit different then Book of Ra, this game reminds so much of the game I have mentioned. When I saw this game for the first time and seeing the free spins feature, specially the wild one and the scatter one which are the same symbol the Book, same old story of Book of Ra slot but this time with new title Book of Dead game.

Book of Dead slot is a 5 reel with only 10 pay lines and by the way I really hate this kind of games, but given as free spins offered by some casinos when they launched this game, can't say no for a freebie. The game has nothing special so in my eyes its another PlayNGo slot with very low variance, giving you some tiny wins, well in my case all dead or empty spins.

The game has free spins feature and the most that player can get is 20 free spins. The Book is a wild symbols but scatter as well, so triggering 3 Book symbols will award you 10 free spins and the more scatters triggered the more spins would be won. The only thing I liked is the free spins feature where the wilds are expanding, but even so I didn't manage to trigger something bigger then 25 X my bet size. I even deposited once in iGame casino where they were giving 100 free spins for one tiny deposit so I thought I could give it another try.

So from those 100 free spins I only won 8.50 euros and triggered the free spins only once. Sorry PlayNGo, but this is not my type of casino games, it might have nice potential of big wins, but I doubt I rill trigger it. So yet another slot game from this provider which I definitely would never play, or I might but only given as free spins from some casinos.

Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, is the full title of this new game from PlayNGo. The game is actually nothing new at all, but merely a clone of Book of Ra and similar games. If you've played Book of Ra, then consider yourself as having played this Book of Dead. Other than its title, everything play the same way. The only difference being, some games play very well indeed, some play so-so, but some games do play horribly.

The Book is the Wild and the Scatter symbol at the same time, as in all other similar games too. 5 Scatters/Wilds pay 200x the total bet. 3 or more Scatters award 10 free spins with a random Special Scattering symbol, as expected. Rich Wilde is the next highest paying symbol, 5 of him paying 5000x the line bet. The Pharaoh pays 2000x, the Idol pays 750x, and the Bird pays 750x also, all as per line bet for 5-of-a-kind of each. The lower symbols pay 150x to 100x the line bet. This paytable is actually no different from that of any similar games, making Book of Dead a definite clone too.

The Book of Ra Deluxe, a Novomatic game, can play horribly bad, but when it starts paying, it's like selling hot cakes! So I wasn't expecting anything different from this Book of Dead game, but I was hoping that it would play slightly differently from all the other similar games, and justify in a way, for labelling Book of Dead a new game, but this isn't so. A clone is a clone in every aspect of its game play.
I just couldn't believe my eyes when I played this game the first time. Right from the very first spin, it went on and on and on without giving any Free Spins game. Whatever some spins paid were so meagre and miserably small, with not a single 5-of-a-kind win. Nothing decent at all, nothing worthwhile at all. It ate up all of my first deposit like a very hungry lion, without any pause to breathe! On another day, I tried again, with the same blardy result! This Book of Dead was performing like the dead, and remaining dead. On my third deposit, I finally got the first Free Spins game, with 'K' as the scattering symbol, but all I got was twice of 4 reels of K and twice of 3 reels. All others were dead, well, almost. With such blardy poor payouts, I simply gave up trying. This Book of Dead should remain with the dead for ever more!

Book of Dead is video slot with 5 reels and 10 paylines. It is creation of Play'n GO software provider. I do not like Play'n GO software games so much, mostly because I never won any massive big win on them. But I had some decent winnings around x100 bet.

I came across this one some month ago, while I was playing at Casumo. Well I heard of it, before I made even my deposit there. When I tried to deposit, I got some offer for 30 free spins on Book of Dead game. After I made deposit I opened it, and from those free spins I won only around 3€. I was a little bit disappointed at the beginning, but later when I saw that it has only 10 paylines – I guess it was ok. Hehe.

The game has only one feature – free spins. Those free spins feature has special expanding symbol mode. When you trigger 10 free spins, you will get some random expanding symbol. I like this kind of mode during free spins, i played a few other games which have this kind of feature and I won pretty decent money from them. But those games were powered by other softwares.

After I used 30 free spins I played it for some more time. I triggered free spins once and from them I won almost x100 bet. Well later I just closed it, because I got bored. I think the free spins feature is great here, but main game is quite boring with small payouts.
I am not so sure that I will play it again in near future. Mostly because it was hard to get those free spins while I was playing it. And the thing which I dislike here is that you can’t get more than 10 free spins. I triggered feature with 4 scattered books – but there were the same number of free spins.
Book of the Dead is a video slot game that is created in Play'n Go. This game has 10 pay-lines and 5 reels. When it comes to the appearance of the game, the theme and even the sound that can be heard while playing, this game really reminds me of another video slot game called Book of Ra (Novomatic). There is no doubt that the Book of Ra was inspiration to the creators in Play'n Go.

When it comes to the graphics and the animation, this game is not that bad but I expected more because this is one of the newest Play'n Go slot games. From features here you have the interesting free spins feature. This feature can be reached with 3 or more symbols with the book. Also, the symbol of the book is the wild symbol. You get 10 free spins with a special symbol that during the free spins becomes a wild symbol and which spreads over the entire reel on which it appears. Actually this can bring you big wins on this game, because not often can happen that the wild symbol covers the entire 3 or 4 reels during the free spins.

Although my experience with this game is not big it seems to me that you can’t reach the free spins so easily. The only time, I played Book of the Dead with a bet of 1 Euro per spin. The truth is that, already after just a few spins I have reached the free spins where I had total wins bigger than 150 x bet. But after that I spent more than 1.5 hours on this game with just one break, and I did not reached the free spins again. What can I write at the end of this review? The Book of the Dead does not offer a lot of excitement or too much originality and from me will get only the minimum positive rating i.e. 6 out of 10 possible stars.
