Play’n Go Just Launched Book of Dead Pokie
Book of Dead, is a new pokies game developed by the Swedish company Play’n GO. It was released a few days ago on the 14th of January.
The game is the third instalment of the Rich Wilde series. An adventurer, who in previous Play’n GO title explored a mystical Indian slot and battled Aztec gods. Rich Wild is back and ready to wrangle with Ancient Egypt.
What We Like
This is a great looking game. Play’n Go have a reputation for developing games with exceptional graphics and this one is no exception. The dusty gold temple backdrop, works nicely with the mud brown reels. It is very Indiana Jones and we love us some Indiana Jones. The Book of Dead animation is a display of pure visual excellence.
When the symbol lands on the reels, a gold light glows from within the interface and it looks gobsmacking good. The Book of Dead symbols has been given divine powers. It is the highest value symbol in the game, acts a wild a scatter and unlocks the bonus game. We like this. By giving this symbol cosmic powers, Play’n Go have made it feel a little bit magical, and the rational mind normally does not think that about pokies symbols.
The Bonus Game, everyone loves a good bonus game and Book of Dead is dressed to impress. Landing three Book of Dead symbols anywhere on the reels unlocks 10 free spins. In this bonus game, a symbol is selected at random to play the part of expanding scatter. The book is still wild, but this other symbol will grow to cover the reels in a mighty pay line. The highest pay-out is achieved when The Book of Dead symbol is selected as the expanding scatter.
Remember The Book is a wild symbol and if you add a few every spin then you can rake in a massive win. The Jackpot is a casual 250,000 coins or 5000x stake. These are big numbers we are playing with. We like that this game is strikingly similar to the Book of Ra Deluxe slot. Maybe it is a clone, maybe it is not.
The point is that Book of Ra, is only available on a few sites, of little to no importance, and land based casinos. Play’no Go are bringing these features to some of the biggest casinos online and even the mobile platform.
What we do not like
Ten pay lines leaves a lot to be desired. There is not much we can say about this game that is not glowing reviews. It did everything right, Bonus Game, free spins, divine book of cosmic power. We like the theme. We like the Jackpot. We like everything. If you were expecting some healthy cynicism, go find a Barcrest slot review.
Is this game worth playing?
We think it is. Play’n Go always do a good job, and they put a lot of effort into their series. The Rich Wilde, series must be loved by the Swedish folk over in the quiet town of Växjö because they have taken the time to do the important things properly. The Jackpot is a hearty figure. The game has great graphics, features and we struggled to fault it. We would recommend this game to anyone and no Play’n Go did not pay us to write that. We just like nice things.
