Hi, my name is Taryna and I will be reviewing Play’n Go Book of Dead for you. This game is an obvious copy of Book of Ra, the immensely popular Novomatic game. It’s nothing for Play’n Go to be ashamed of. In fact, it is with this exact game that they have gotten as popular as they are nowadays. And they are in good company, because as you might know there are a lot of copies of Book of Ra out there. All the providers try to lift off the success of this game, that originated in land based casinos. Not many of them do it well, but Play’n Go does.
Sounds and symbols
The sounds take you back to the time in Egypt in which the game takes place. The times were much simpler as you can also see by the amount of symbols. Besides the hero of the game, Rich Wilde, you’ll find three other high paying symbols that are images of ancient Egyptian legends, among which Anubis and Osiris. The low paying symbols consist of the A, K, Q, J and 10 of a normal deck of playing cards. Besides that, there’s one additional symbol.
First of all, you can choose the autoplay option for 10 to 1.000 rounds in a row. For the bet you have options as well. You can choose to play with 1 to 10 lines per round. On each line you can bet 1 to 5 coins. And the value of these coins ranges from 1 cent to 1 euro. This means that the minimum bet is 1 cent and the maximum bet in this game is 50 euro per round. Which makes this a great game for beginners and high rollers.
The maximum amount of coins that you can win is 250.000. If you play with the max coin value, that means that you can win a quarter of a million euro. That’s not bad at all. Besides this, you can also generate some nice wins with the book symbol, which is the wild as well as the scatter symbol. If you see three books in the game, you receive 10 free spins. And you also get some extra wins. However, if you are looking for a real big win, Rich Wild is your guy as this is the highest paying symbol.
This game is immensely popular. Actually it’s so popular that Rich Wilde got an entire series of games. However, that doesn’t make the game more exciting. The nicest thing about it is the high price. Other than that it is pretty simple. But often that is the way to success, and Play’n Go proves it once more. This slot or gokkasten in Dutch is very popular among Dutch players.
Other Play’n Go Games
If you like this game, you might want to look at other games by Play’n Go, such as the Rich Wilde series that consists of Pearls of India, Aztec Idols, Tome of Madness and Shield of Athena. But Play’n Go has created another friend that every casino player loves to hang out with. His name is Hugo. Other than Rich Wilde, who is a cool adventurer, Hugo is an animated character that steals your heart with his clumsiness. He is actually based on Hugo the Troll, a Danish TV star. His first game, simply called Hugo, was such a big hit that Hugo 2 followed shortly after. The third in line was Hugo’s Goal, a game that centred around the famous soccer game. Finally, Hugo’s Adventure was released and it showed another side of everyone’s favourite little troll.
