Play ‘N Go’s Legacy of Dead Video Slot Review

Legacy of Dead: Demo

Legacy of Dead is a rather strangely named Egyptian-themed video slot from Play ’N Go. It’s a 5 reel, 10 payline game that comes with superb design and a cracking feature that awards free spins with expanding symbols. Each retrigger turns another symbol into an expander. Stakes in this high variance game range from between 10p and £100 per spin.

Classy sound & visuals

A Pharaoh’s burial chamber should look stunning and the one in this video slot certainly does. Set against a background of hieroglyph-filled walls and flaming torches, the reels include A to 10 playing card values as well as a quartet of higher paying Egyptian-themed symbols. The mummified Pharaoh is the most lucrative standard symbol. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination for a payout of 1, 10, 100 or 500 times your total bet.

Wild = Scatter

Central to much of the best action in Legacy of Dead is the golden burial mound which acts as both a wild and a scatter. It substitutes for all the standard symbols and also has the potential to trigger the Free Spins feature. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 wilds on a payline for an award of 1, 10, 100 or 500 times your total stake.

Free spins with expanding symbols

The Free Spins feature is triggered by landing 3 or more wild/scatter anywhere on the reels on the same spin. After a payout of 2, 20 or 200 times your bet, you’ll then go on to play 10 free spins. Before the round starts, 1 symbol is picked at random. This expands to fill the whole reel whenever it hits.

Retriggers gives you more expanding symbols

Landing 3 or more scatters on the same spin results in a re-trigger and another round of 10 free spins. It also activates another expanding symbol. Multiple re-triggers mean more and more expanding symbols. You could end up with 9 expanding symbols here.

Payouts of up to 25,000 x total bet

Play ’N Go is the go-to developer for high risk, high reward video slots. Legacy of Dead is another very high variance game. It can deliver some mighty rewards though with potential payouts of up to 25,000 times your bet from the whole Free Spins feature – on each spin or free spin, you can win 5,000 times your bet.

There’s nothing complicated about Legacy of Dead. The straightforward gameplay, classy design and extreme volatility make it a very playable take on the ever-popular Egyptian theme and well worth investigating. If you want more trip to ancient Egypt, you should begin with Rich Wild and the Book of Dead which was Play ‘N Go’s first from this range.
