Book of Dead Slot

Book of Dead Slot

Book of Copycat

Come on Play’n Go, most slots are similar as it is. Was it really necessary to make an exact copy of Novomatic’s hit? Don’t get us wrong, the Book of Dead slot is good, thanks to nice graphics and a solid free spins round. It’s just that everything that’s good about it had been invented by someone else. Go explore some tombs… again.

We recommend:
Play this slot at King Billy Casino
Play this slot at Videoslots Casino
Play this slot at Casumo Casino

Book of Dead slot by Play’n Go is similar to another Egyptian-themed slot - Book of Ra from Novomatic. And by “similar” we really mean it blatantly copies most of the symbols, bonus round, and expanding symbol mechanics. Way to go, Play’n Go…

That being said, the game looks better than its “source of inspiration”. The symbols look nice, the animations are smooth, and the background music is cool. The nameless Hatted Guy has traded the hat for a name - he’s Rich Wilde now. When it comes to features, if you’ve ever played Book of Ra, you’d know what to expect from Book of Dead. The Book symbol is both wild and scatter, and triggers the round of free spins.

Gameplay

The main game is pretty standard - 5 reels, 10 paylines, and the Book, that substitutes for other symbols. Whenever three Books appear, you get 10 free spins. Before they begin, the game randomly chooses a symbol from the standard paytable. When this symbol appears during the free spins, in expands to cover the whole reel. Even more - it pays as a scatter, meaning it doesn’t have to appear on adjacent reels, or start from the leftmost one.

“The symbols, the scatter-that-is-also-wild, the free spins with expanding symbol - we’ve already seen it all, in the exact same combination.”

Our Opinion

This is a tricky one. On one hand, Book of Dead slot is cool, and offers pretty graphics, and great free spins mode with an expanding symbol. On the other hand, it’s a shameless rip-off of another slot that we’ve mentioned enough already. Give it a try, chances are you’d like it better that the original.

Success!!!
