In this new casino slot from Play’n GO, we head to Egypt, in search of the scroll of dead that is said to have magical powers, which could of bring a real fortune. It is a classic "Book of" slot where you get to take part in spins that can give an Expanding symbol, where they have changed the name to "Scroll of" this time. But let's find out what you can take part in during the game and if it differs from the previous "Book of" slots.
The Egyptians were very skilled and talented in creating buildings. Where the pyramids and the sphinx belong to the most iconic constructions, but even though these are very fascinating to the surface, it is inside that the really exciting things start to happen. The Egyptians had an incredible ability to create impressive ornamentations for these, where, among other things, carefully calculated passages guided the visitor to the various places. The fact that researchers have also found materials that can be equated with batteries that illuminated these tunnels is very puzzling. But it is not only these buildings that they were good at building, now we also get the chance to take part in a slot from there that offers us an exciting spin experience.
Scroll of Dead is an online slot from Play’n GO which during the Base game has 5 reels, 3 rows and within the Bonus game it opens 1 extra reel which results in you getting 6 reels in total. There is an option to choose between 1 to 10 paylines and you can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.10 and a Max.bet of 100. Like other games from Play'n GO, there are different RTPs that the game operators can choose to make use of, so be sure to check out what applies at the place you are playing from. The game's RTP is 96.28% by default and it's a high volatility. In this Egyptian adventure, the lucky player can win up to 7500X the bet.
This is a slot that goes very straightforward in terms of features, where it uses many classic ones. The features you can take part in are Wild Symbol, Free Spins, Expanding Symbol and Gamble. It is now time for us to find out which symbols that could land on the reels during your spins.
The game's design consists of an Egyptian theme, where we are in a chamber. In the background of the game, we can see large pillars with lit torches, where its color changes to a strong red color when the Bonus game is activated. You create a winning combination by landing 3 or more of the same symbol type on adjacent reels, starting at the far left. The higher paying symbols and Wilds only require you to land 2 on adjacent reels to create a winning combination. With the help of the game's Expanding symbol which is activated within the Free Spins, the unique symbol type doesn’t have to be on adjacent reels to be able to create a win.
The lower paying symbols are 10, J, Q, K and A. The higher paying symbols are Ankh, Falcon, Cobra and Cleopatra. The game's Wild symbol is also the game's Scatter symbol, and this consists of a golden scarab. Play’n GO wants to ensure that as many players as possible can enjoy their games by also offering mobile slots games, where you can easily play this slot on the device that suits you best. Let's find out what the features do.
In this adventure you can win up to 7500X the bet using the Wild Symbol, Free Spins, Expanding Symbol and Gamble features.
The game's Wild symbol is also the Scatter symbol and it helps to create more winning combinations. This is because it substitutes for all other symbols on the reels, the only thing it doesn’t do is participate in winning combinations created by expanding symbols.
By landing 3 or more Scatter symbols, the Free Spins feature is activated. You are then welcomed with 8 free spins and depending on whether you landed 3, 4 or 5 scatters, you get 2X, 20X and 200X the bet in direct winnings. Before you can start taking part in these free spins, you will receive an extra reel, which gives you a total of 6 reels with 3 rows. Then a random symbol type will be selected, and this will then during the feature be the expanding symbol.
The randomly selected expanding symbol that you have obtained comes with amazing features. When you spin the reels, you can create winning combinations with this symbol even though they are not on adjacent reels. When wins are created, they will then expand to cover the entire reels on which they are placed, allowing a large number of winning combinations.
The Gamble feature gives you the opportunity to increase your winnings even further. When you get a win, you can choose between guessing the color or suit of a hidden card, if you guess correctly, you get 2X and 4X respectively for these different choices. This can be used a maximum of 5 times in a row in the main game and can certainly help to increase the winnings quickly, but if you guess wrong, the entire winnings are lost.
Just as Egypt is a recurring theme among slots, so is the Expanding symbol feature. We have seen this feature many times in, among other places, Book of 99 and Book of Dead. It is certainly a recurring concept that some may feel very tired of, while other fans of this slot type will be overjoyed when another version is being released. Here we get to take part in spins on an initially 5X3 slot, whereby activating the Free Spins feature another reel is added, so we get a total of a 6X3 slot. This addition of an extra reel really gives this type of slot a hefty upgrade that creates an extra thrill. A random expanding symbol is then selected, and this will help us create great winning combinations using its expanding effects. The slot may be quite basic, but it fulfills its main purpose in a very elegant way, despite the fact that one could have appreciated a slightly more creative choice of theme.
What Play’n GO does in this slot is to offer a wide choice of Min and Max bets as well as the choices of the number of paylines you want to use. This is to adapt to the unique player as well as possible. That they also choose to have a maximum win of up to 7500X the bet is highly appreciated and certainly creates an extra excitement during the spins.
The biggest difference between Scroll of Dead and other "Book of" slots is its name, in addition to that we get to take part in a gaming adventure that offers expanding wilds, extra reel, free spins and the opportunity to scoop up a large part of Pharaoh's treasures.
