Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead is a Play ‘N Go-powered video slot with 5 reels and 10 paylines. You join archaeological adventurer Rich Wilde as he uses his knowledge of history and hieroglyphics to go in search for hidden riches. With an ancient Egyptian theme, it has a mystical feel as you encounter Anubis and Osiris.
Available to play from 10p to £100 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, the game takes place inside a pyramid. Symbols on the reels include Anubis, Horus, Osiris and Riche Wilde himself – he’s the highest value symbol rewarding you with 5,000 coins if you land 5 on a payline.
The legendary Book of Dead is both the wild and scatter symbol – when you get 3 or more anywhere on the reels, you will trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 10 free spins. Before the free spins start, the book of dead opens to reveal, randomly, the symbol that will possess special powers.
That chosen symbol will expand to cover the entire reel when it appears on the reels – if you manage to get a few on a single free spin, expect huge wins. There’s up to 500 times your stake available to be won on every single free spin. What you need to hope for is a high value symbol as your chosen expanding symbol. Furthermore, you can retrigger the free spins feature with an additional 10 free spins available (taking your total to 20).
Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead is a high variance video slot – don’t expect to win much at all but when you do, it can be huge amounts. More often than not, it will suck your bankroll dry so you need to tread with care. It’s very similar in terms of gameplay, and theme, to the iconic Book of Ra Deluxe from Novomatic – which is a good thing.
