Online gambling software developer Play’n Go has started 2016 with a big bang, announcing a new game release for January 14, 2016 – on mobile screens. The new title Rich Wilde and The Book of Dead, will boast a familiar character from their adventure slots series.
If you’re thinking that we have just written a huge typo in the title, know that it’s not our fault. It is literally the name of the new mobile slot – Rich Wilde and The Book of Dead.
We would love to think that the developers from Play’n Go are just being clever and literally translating some ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, but we actually suspect some just forgot to add the word “the” to “the Book of the Dead”.
Meanwhile, let’s see a sneak peek at what’s this new slot all about. Should we get excited?
The Rich Wilde and The Aztec Idols focused on an Amazon jungle where the player chased idols. The second title of the series was released in 2015 – Rich Wilde and the Pearls of India.
Play’n Go’s new slot moves away from the Asian continent and heads over to the ancient Egyptian lands. We’re talking about a very, very original slot theme here. Add this to the fact that Egyptian slots are among the most popular ones.
In the first slot of the series – Aztec Idols – Rich Wilde looks like he’s in his 30s, while in India he looks like a 20 something. The Book of Dead slot features a rugged 40-year-old Rich chasing down the mystical Book of the Dead. Next time we will probably see Rich Wilde retired and with grandkids.
The new ancient Egypt-related slot boasts 5 reels and 10 paylines with huge wins. Where did we take this information from? Well, from Play’n Go, as there’s a 5,000x max bet. You can reach that incredible sum by keeping an eye for the book of course – representing both a wild symbol and a scatter. Just make sure you see 5 such symbols on your screen while playing and you’ll land 10 types of prizes that will amaze you.
It’s the first-of-its-kind slot in the Play’n Go portfolio. There is another Egyptian-themed slot on the market called Riches of Ra slot, boasting stacked wilds, 5 reels and 15 paylines. This slot powered by Novomatic has one big thing in common with Book of Dead – huge wins. Yes, Play’n Go’s slot borrows quite much from one of the most famous Novomatic games.
Gamblers who have been to land-based casinos in Europe or the US have definitely seen the Book of Ra Deluxe slot on the casinos floors. We’re talking about a classic, and you should play the slot at some point in your life.
Play’n Go love to make unique things, that’s why the mathematics of Book of Dead slot game will be quite different. We will definitely see some unique things, even though the hero is still there. The 10-payline system is there, too, along with a scatter symbol in the free spins mode and a book symbol which acts as scatter and wild.
One thing is certain: developers ditched that “the” in Book of ‘The’ Dead for one thing – to make the title closer to Novomatic’s Book of Ra.
Novomatic casinos and slots are quite hard to find. There are some great ones in Australia and in the UK, but they’re hard to find.
Europe-based gamblers will have an easier life finding them. The trick is that Play’n Go slots are present on literally every good casino you can name. And if this game developer have worked hard to craft a nice game, with attractive mechanics, it will become much easier for playes to find it.
January 14 is the date when the new slot will be released. Even though it will eventually appear in online casinos, you will be able to play it on your smartphone – Windows, iOS, and Android devices. This is a great thing because since the game will be released for mobile devices first, that means it will be an awesome game.
