Book of Dead Mobile Slot Review
Rich Wilde: Book of Dead is a popular Video Slot from Play 'N Go, in fact, probably one of their most well-known titles, and it’s easy to see why – the games filled with exciting bonus features, and, while it’s basically a clone of Novomatic’s “Book of Ra Deluxe”, Play 'N Go manage to give a unique spin on the game, and make it extremely enjoyable.
Not only is Book of Dead available to enjoy from desktop computers and laptops, but thanks to the mobile-optimized version, mobile players can also accompany Rich on his journey!
The game itself uses a fairly “old-school” look and feel, and while it’s likely a deliberate move from Play 'N Go, in terms of making the slot look older than it is, it does cause some players to click-away, purely down to the fact that the design is “average”.
That being said, the gameplay is surprisingly smooth, and the reels, and their symbols are relatively high-quality.
In terms of the symbols available, you’ll see both a mixture of low-paying, and high-paying symbols.
The low-paying symbols are depicted by playing-card values, 10 through Ace, and the high-paying symbols include a Bird, a Horse-head, a Mummy, and Rich Wilde himself. The Wild Symbol is a Book, which also doubles as the games scatter symbol.
Just the one feature in the book of dead, and it’s triggered by landing three of the book scatter symbols on any of the 5 reels.
You’ll then be awarded 10 free-spins, with one symbol randomly chosen as an expanding symbol. Simply land this symbol on 3 reels (or 2 if it’s a premium), and the symbol will fill the reels, basically fitting the entire reel.
You can re-trigger the feature by landing another three or more scatter symbols anywhere in view on the reels. This ensures you can continue playing for a long time, and – theoretically – means you could enjoy the bonus-round forever!
Book of Dead can be enjoyed from a large variety of devices, and thanks to the fact that Play 'N Go made the game using HTML5 (instead of the less-secure Flash), it means iOS players can now get in on the action! In fact, it’s not just iOS users that can enjoy Book of Dead; Android, Blackberry, and Windows users can all play the game, and so long as your Internet Connection is relatively reliable, you’ll have no problems gaming… at all!
Pros: The bonus round can go HUGE, paying upwards of 20,000X your stake!
Cons: It’s very high volatile, so don’t expect big wins all that often.
