Here we are once again, in the sandy dunes of ancient Egypt. There’s a reason many video slot games decide to use this setting as a backdrop for their game, it’s because it’s a mysterious time period veiled in wonder and excitement.
Let’s find out if Play ‘n GO has done enough to set this game apart from all the rest.
Theme and Symbols
As previously mentioned, this particular title takes place in ancient Egypt where Pharaohs ruled and the mysterious deities made fate dance with every pull of a string.
The backtrack accompanying this title is fitting and is used well. Listening to it while playing really immerses you in the theme. The sound effects that play on winning spins are sharp and really draw your attention. There’s a satisfying thud when the reels stop spinning giving the impression that these reels are heavy and made to last like the pyramids themselves.
The artwork on the icons is vivid and detailed and the quality of the animations and graphics are top notch.
It should come as a surprise to no one that Play ‘n GO has done a fantastic job once again, coupling gorgeous visuals with a weighty soundtrack and musical score.
Betting Options and features
The game plays out like a standard 5 reel, 3 row video slot. It has a RTP of 96.2% and a fairly low number of paylines sitting at 10.
Let’s take a look at some of the symbols and what they represent.
There is a wild symbol that is represented by a book with a scarab on its cover. One can only assume that this is the Book of Dead mentioned in the title. This book can substitute for any other symbol in the game and should three of them appear on the grid, they open to reveal ten bonus spins.
The scatter symbol acts as a wild symbol in this title.
There is a special gamble feature that you can take advantage of after every winning spin. Should you decide to risk it, you can get handsomely rewarded with a multiple of your prize.
If you select the gamble feature you will be prompted to choose between either red or black or between a heart, diamond, club or spade.
Choosing the correct colour will net you your win x2 and choosing the correct suit pays your win x4.
This gamble can be played up to five times in a row.
