Book of Dead review
Theme and Style
This slot is themed around ancient Egypt.
In a mystical golden hall, players will stand before a regal selection of artifacts. The gleaming masks of pharaohs and sculptures of gods make it clear that players have entered a realm of royalty and magic. With a little luck, they’ll snag some of the treasures for themselves.
Mythology enthusiasts will love the references to Egyptian gods, even if the aesthetic is more one of fantasy.
Some savvy players may notice some similarities between this game and Novomatic’s Book of Ra. However, with a more alluring RTP and volatility. Book of Dead is a worthy alternative among the various "Book of …" games.
Visuals and Soundtrack
The tension-inducing soundtrack has a middle eastern vibe with mesmerising percussion beats. Players will feel as though they are at the climax of an action film. The reels spin and land with satisfying clicks, ensuring that the gameplay has a classic feel.
The animation is sharp, richly hued and high quality. The tempting treasures on the reels seem to catch the light with their gold and jewel-tones. The priceless mask of a mummy and the god Horus in the form of a gem-wing hawk are especially eye-catching.
Ancient Egyptian-enthusiasts will recognise the jackal-headed god Anubis on the reels. This seems especially fitting for the game since he was the deity responsible for preparing souls for the afterlife.
Also on the reels is a rugged explorer character. His tousled hair and charismatic smile let the players know that he is up for adventure.
Behind the reels players will see a monumental hall and elegantly carved stone pillars. This attention to detail pays off by creating a sense of majesty that fits the theme.
