Graphics and Sounds

Ancient Egypt: Book of Dead is an online slot game that is set in Egypt and follows Riche Wilde as he explores the mysteries of the tombs and treasures of Ancient Egypt. The game is set in front of what looks to be the intricately designed entrance to an ancient tomb that has been left undisturbed for a long time. Ornate stone pillars are standing on either side of the reels with an intricately designed ceiling and pillars leading away from it. Below the reels is a stone tiled floor with various stone jugs scattered around.

Background: The reels are bordered by stone and are separated from one another with gold and blue striped pillars, with the symbols sitting on a dark brown background. The high paying symbols have coloured backgrounds with hieroglyphics designs, while the low paying symbols sit directly on the brown background of the reels. They are bright colours with golden borders, making them stand out against this dark background. The background music of the game is Ancient Egyptian in style adding a dramatic and mysterious twist to the game.

Special Features

Book of Dead Slot has simple bonus features that offer players a way to boost their winnings as they play. You will want to keep an eye on the golden Book of Dead symbol as this is both the wild symbol and the scatter symbol which is the key to the bonus feature game. The unique features in the game include a free spins bonus round and a gamble feature option.

  • Free Spins Bonus Round – Landing three or more scattered golden Book of Dead symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins bonus round. Players will be awarded ten free spins. Before the free spins begin playing, one symbol will be selected at random to become an expanding symbol throughout the bonus feature. This means that whenever this symbol lands on an active payline during a free spin if it can help to create a winning combination, it will expand to cover the entire reel. If you are lucky enough to have a high paying symbol selected as your random expanding symbol, this can result in impressive wins during the free spins round. The free spins can be re-triggered from within this feature, awarding another ten free spins, if three or more golden Book of Dead scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels.
  • Gamble Feature – After every winning payout in the game, players will be given the option to gamble their winnings. You can choose to collect your winnings from that payout and continue playing, or you can decide to bet the winnings from that particular payout to increase them. If you choose to gamble, you will be taken to a separate screen with a pile of playing cards face down in the centre. You can select the colour of the playing card or its suit, and when it is turned face up to reveal the card if you are correct, your winnings will be multiplied by 2x or by 4x, respectively. If you were incorrect in your selection, you would lose your winnings from that round. If you guessed correctly, you could choose to gamble again, with the same gamble options, or you can decide to return to the main game and to continue playing on the spinning reels.
