The OCR review


Book of Dead from Play’n GO is one of the most popular slots in the online and mobile casino world – for very good reason. The relatively simple gameplay is boosted by superb graphics, a good soundtrack, ad a very good max win potential of 5,000x.

Gameplay is fast and the ancient Egypt/treasure hunter/tomb raider theme is a classic that never gets old. Book of Dead, with all thanks to Play’n GO, also has one other big bonus – it’s a part of very respected, much beloved series from Play’n GO that features Rich Wilde or his daughter Cat Wilde in Indiana Jones-style adventures around the world. There are currently 10 different titles in the Rich Wilde and Cat Wilde series and, like a well-written TV series, each one just adds to the fun and excitement.

Great fun and great gameplay.


The symbols will be instantly recognisable to any amateur Egyptologist and the crisp artwork with the Egyptian temple background are eye-catching and beautiful.

Low paying symbols are the Royals: 10, J, Q (same value); K, A (same value).

Higher paying symbols from low to highest: Horus – bird god, Anubis – jackal-headed god (same value); Gold Pharaoh Mask; Rich Wilde.

The Book of Dead symbol is both the wild and the Scatter that triggers Free Spins.


While Book of Dead is a relatively older entry in the Wilde series from Play’n GO, it has stood the test of time. And this has as much to do with the gameplay as it does to the amazingly crafted graphics which bring the Egyptian feel to life.


Backing sounds are quite simple with an unobtrusive Egyptian-strings soundtrack and the usual reels and wins sounds.

Bonuses and extras

Features are thin on the ground with only Wilds and Free Spins on offer. The Book of Dead symbol stands in for both Wilds and Scatters.


Substitutes for all symbols.

The OCR verdict

Every entry into the Wilde series is a winner but Book of Dead really put Play’n GO on the map. And, while it has been around for quite a while, the attention to detail that was put in at the very beginning is still paying out today.

Highly recommended.
