Design and Gameplay

Enter, once again, the tomb of the ancient pharaoh god king in search for, contrary to what you might think, the notorious book of dead. Whilst in the depths of the tomb, the lights grow darker and the hollow passageways tighter until your reach the room itself, where the parchment as old as the pyramids themselves lays, untouched, unread. You pick it up and read aloud expecting a miracle. Instead, suddenly, in front of you a video slot game appears offering you riches unlike anything you’ve wished before.

It’s clear why Book of Dead has accumulated such popularity over the last couple of years or so. It’s the fastest game to put us straight in the action, with no intros, no help texts, nothing. Not only that, but the spinning of the 5 reels is very quick and energetic. However, the game might look and feel quite simple for some gamblers that like their games slightly deeper gameplay and design wise. It is arguably in this, at first glance flaw that the charm of Book of Dead rests in. If such the case is then the flaw turns to asset.

This Play’n’Go title offers excellent graphics and sounds that put you in the gamblers chair and set you of to find what your heart desires most. All the imagery, including symbols, are themed after ancient Egypt, and are delivered finely.


It is abundantly clear that the game does not strive for complex bonus schemes. With its 10 paylines, Free Spins, and Expanding Symbol, Book of Dead is clearly stisfyied with its content. What’s more is that customers too are happy with these bonuses.

To activate the Free Spins, one must land on three Scatters. This grants you 10 Free Spins. The book is also Wild and can substitute for any other symbol to form a winning combo.

The special Expanding Symbol is chosen randomly to aid you in winning even more during Free Spins mode. It expands and covers the reels when more prizes are in store.


Obviously Book of Dead is doing something right. It’s one of the most popular games out there and for a reason. We think it’s due to the ease and accessibility with which the slot game seems to be carrying itself. Or that fast spin that land for less than 2 seconds. Yes we timed it. Don't miss out on this excellent video slot title.
