Play ‘n Go announce a Book of Dead video slot

It has to be said that Novomatic’s Book of Ra slot has gathered a lot of attention over the last year. For what amounts to a simple game, its popularity is rather incredible. It is no wonder then, that Play ‘n Go recently announced that they are developing a slot known as Book of Dead, which will feature Rich Wilde from their Aztec Idols slot. Curiously enough, the new Book of Dead slot looks quite similar to Book of Ra. Imagine that.

New Slot

The new Book of Dead slot will be launched later this week, and is played over 5 reels and just 10 paylines. The slot is supposed to be based on the spells and incantations which guide the Ancient Egyptian dead to the underworld, and eternal rest. Just like in Novomatic’s Book of Ra slot, Play ‘n Go have decided to make the wild and scatter icon one and same in Book of Dead.book-of-dead

Free Spins Bonus Round

The slot contain a free spins bonus round, which can be retriggered during the bonus, and provide you with wins worth as much as 250,000 coins in all. This new slot will be the first slot released by Play ‘n Go in 2016, and if it truly does resemble the popular Book of Ra slot in terms of gameplay, wagers and prizes, then it may just become a hit.

Maybe Too Similar

On the other hand, the comparisons may just be too similar, and players may be put off by the fact that they could essentially be playing a Book of Ra rip-off. Only time will tell how successful and original Book of Dead will turn out to be.

Thursday Launch

There is only one way to find out for sure, though, and that is to wait until Thursday, when the slot is launched at all good casinos carrying or supporting Play ‘n Go software.
