Book of Dead: Slot Review

Featuring the intrepid adventurer Rich Wilde, the Book of Dead online slot from Play’n GO is one of the most popular slots of all time, not just at Boom Casino. This is all thanks to its intriguing Ancient Egyptian theme, stunningly rich graphics, engaging features, and awesome bonuses. This exciting slot game follows daring adventurer Rich Wilde’s pursuit of precious artifacts including the ancient Book of Dead, which has long buried deep within the depths of the pyramid. Legends say that the Book of Dead holds the key to an impressive fortune, which has been guarded by the Ancient Egyptian deities for centuries!

Book of Dead: Gameplay and Symbols

In Rich Wilde’s latest adventure, we step inside a richly decorated tomb to find the mysterious Book of Dead that rests within the 5 reels, 3 rows, and 10 paylines. This high variance slot comes with many in-game bonus features to help you win, including free spins, expanding wilds, and scatter symbols.

Wins are made by connecting matching symbols on consecutive reels from left to right from the first reel onwards. For the lower-paying symbols, a minimum of three symbols in a combination is required to generate a payout while for the higher-paying symbols, combinations of only two are needed.

There are ten different symbols that appear on the reels in the Book of Dead slot game. Four of these are higher-paying symbols, five more are lower-paying symbols, and one is the free spins scatter symbol, which you will recognize as the Book of Dead. This can act as both the wild and the scatter.

Elsewhere on the reels, you will find playing card royals from 10 all the way up to Ace for the lower value icons, as well as high value symbols inspired by Egypt’s magnificent past. These are portraits of Horus, Anubis and Osiris as well as the explorer Riche Wilde himself, who is the highest paying of all, paying out as high as 500 x your original bet should you land five on a payline. If you can manage to fill the reels entirely of Rich Wilde symbols during a spin, then you’ve hit the jackpot which means you’ll win 5000 x your bet. However, even two Rich Wildes will already give you your stake back. As for that Book of Dead symbol, this is both the wild and the scatter and when it lands as a wild, it can substitute for all other symbols to help you form winning combos.

Book of Dead: Special Features

Book of Dead’s main bonus feature is the free spins game. The Book of Dead symbol is the most important symbol in this game as it serves as both the scatter and the wild symbol. It also can replace any basic symbol and trigger a winning combination. If three or more golden Book of Dead symbols appear anywhere on the reels in one spin, it will trigger 10 free spins.

Free Spins

When you begin your free spins you will make your way to the sacred chamber where the free spins can continuously be re-triggered. Before you spin though, one symbol is randomly chosen to be the special expanding symbol. This will grow to cover every position on its reel so long as the expansion of the symbol will create a winning combination on an active payline.

Unlike standard symbol combinations, expanding scatter payouts can be made both left to right and right to left. If you can land this symbol on each reel, you could be in for some huge wins such as the following. For the Queen, Jack or 10, you will get 100x your stake, while for the King or the Ace, you will get 150x your bet. The Horus or Anubis are worth 750x your stake, and the Osiris 2,000x your stake with Rich Wilde 5,000x your stake.

Gamble Feature

Book of Dead also has its own gamble feature. With each and every winning combination, you will activate the Gamble Feature which will give you the opportunity to multiply the amount of your winnings by up to 200x your stake. To win, you will be asked to guess either the color or suit of the next playing card to be turned over and all you have to do is correctly predict the color of the hidden card to double your win, or the suit to quadruple that amount. The Book of Dead gamble feature can be played up to five times in a row.

Payout & Volatility

Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead has an RTP value of 96.21%, which means that for every $100 wagered theoretically, $96.21 is returned in prize money. Its bet levels range from just $0.10 all the way up to $100, and its high variance means that although wins are further apart, they are more generous than ones on lower variance games — yet another reason why this game has become so popular with both casual and high roller players alike.

As we already know, the maximum win is 5,000x your stake per spin or free spin and to win the top prize, players must fill the reels with the highest value icon, the Rich Wilde symbol. While this can be achieved during base game play, it becomes far more likely when playing in free spins mode and Rich Wilde has been randomly selected as the special expanding symbol.

Big Win Potential

This Book of Dead slot review believes that big wins are a certain possibility with the highly volatile Book of Dead. Although Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead does not come with a progressive jackpot feature, the game does provide a juicy 5,000x jackpot. The best way to unlock those riches is to land the Rich Wilde symbol across all five reels when it has been randomly selected as the special expanding symbol during free spins. This might take a few goes though!
