Free Book of Dead slot machine

About Book of Dead

Ancient Egypt is one of the most popular themes for online slots, and Play'n Go has brought this theme to us yet again with their Book of Dead slot. In this instalment intrepid explorer Rich Wilde digs the pyramids of Egypt in an attempt to win you some of King Tut's riches.

Book of Dead is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that has a variety of slot symbols such as 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, an explorer, an Egyptian sarcophagus, a dog god, hawks, papyrus scrolls, and more. The game is set against the backdrop of a pyramid entrance, giving us a look like we're about to set foot into something exciting and potentially dangerous at the same time. Those of you familiar with Novomatic's phenomenally successful slot machine Book of Ra will instantly recognise that this is more or less a clone of that game.

Feature wise, Book of Dead contains wild symbols, free spins, expanding symbols, and scatters. The game also has a gamble feature, which allows you to put your winnings at risk for a chance to double or even quadruple your haul. The major feature is the free spins round where a single symbol is chosen to expand whenever it lands on the reels. When this happens the symbol expands vertically to fill all three visible positions on the reel, and wins are paid out on the paylines across the reels irrespective of whether the symbols are consecutive or not. For example you still win if your expanding symbol shows up on reels 1, 2, 4, and 5, but not on the middle reel 3. The feature is hugely popular in the Book of Ra games, as it can lead to some enormous wins.

Having spent some time playing Book of Dead, I am of the opinion that this is a pretty good clone of Book of Ra. The presentation is newer and dare I say better than Novomatic's game which is beginning to look a little long in the tooth. There will be a captive market for this game, with those most likely to love this game being those who are fans of Novomatic's classic and of course those of you that enjoy other Play'n Go slots. This game is also an ideal choice for those of you that like Novomatic's game, but are restricted from playing it due to your geographical location.

This game really reminds me of Book of Ra slot and at first I wasn't too keen about it. I tried this game several times at Casumo casino and I have also seen a really nice winning video from a player, so I do think it can bring great winnings, but as fo myself, my best result has been around 80x bet.

Yeah its definitely a Book of Ra clone. I quite like it. As usual for Play 'n Go it looks beautiful and of course where I live I can't play Novomatic's games legally, so this is an ideal substitute. I wonder if they will do Lord of the Ocean next? Thats a little joke btw, LotO is a Novomatic clone of BoR, just with different graphics.

My best results on this one was 166x bet. I agree that this one a clone of Book of Ra:) But my wins on Book of Ra were much bigger(biggest 1000x bet). And actually i am not a big fan of copied games. I play Book of dead but not very often. I prefer some other Playngo slots.

Well I wanted to make a small update. In the last few days I have been playing this game quite frequently at Slotjoint casino and I have had a few wins even 150x worth so that is really nice. Could become one of my favorites from Playngo.

has never received a good payment from this game, I can only get 200x from the total bet, actually this game is very simple, but he can not be a spectacular game by giving a lucrative cashout, but if we are a little more brave in adding total value bet chances are we can get a good payment from this game, but after he gave enough payment I advise not to play this game too long and get out looking for another game, because I always suffer defeat after winning big amount in the same time ,

One of the best games I have ever played.
I have won over 1500 euro on the spins alone. Getting the Explorer is the aim and of course filling the screen. Increasing your bet is worth it should you hit the spins which require 3 golden books

I can't play Book of Ra because of jurisdiction issue, so, this game is a good alternative for me.
And I find some games which are the same as Book of Ra, in Thunderkick, Edict, Playtech Software.

I really like the expanding scatter feature. I hope that I could win some big money in Book of Dead hahaha 🙂

The more I play this game, the more I love it. The free spins feature is very exciting and full of potential. Recently I managed to get a nearly 1000x bet win so it has to get 5 stars from me now.
