Scroll of Dead slot by Play'n Go tells us by the title straight away what the game is all about. Every player must've heard of or played their rip-off of Novomatic's Book of Ra Deluxe slot imaginatively named (Rich Wilde's) Book of Dead slot! Well we have seen many more variations from Play'n Go since but what they never did was a version of the 6-reeler Novomatic variant, Book of Ra Deluxe 6 slot. So guess what? yep, we have one now although unlike the former examples this is not an exact copy. So we know we're going to get gentle Egyptian music, reels with hieroglyphics and a temple background - all boxes checked! So can our bankroll find six of the best here or will it end as dead as those hidden scrolls?
On the reels...
We have single symbols and 10 pay lines over 5 reels of 3 rows each on Scroll of Dead slot. Now you may wonder why I say 5 reels when I have referred in the previous paragraph to a 6-reel version. We'll come to that! So your 5-of-a-kind pays are slightly different to Book of Dead slot at 500x bet Cleopatra, 150x Asp, 50x Ra or Ankh with 5 card values of 12.5 or 10x for a full line. Your Scarab here is both Wild and scatter and will pay 200x bet scattered or 500x if on a pay line. That's it, no modifiers.
You require 3 or more Wild Scarabs to trigger 8 free spins which can be retriggered in the same way. You get a special expanding symbol selected bar the Wild which fills the reel wherever it lands in the bonus and pays scattered if enough are present i.e. 2OAK for the picture symbols and 3OAK for card values. Now I'm sure you've worked out that this is where the relevance of 6 occurs and yes, we get a sixth reel added here. Your 6-of-a-kind pays are 750x Cleopatra, 300x Asp, 100x Ra or Ankh with the card values paying either 20x or 15x for all 6 in view. Of course with the expansion mechanic and the fact we have 10 pay lines, this effectively means a 7,500x top pay for Cleopatra on all six reels if she was the selected symbol or at the other extreme, 150x for the 10 or Jack if that was the relevant symbol.
Scroll of Dead slot has a 96.25% RTP at best, lower in some casinos so please check this. The graphics, sounds and animations bring nothing new as one would expect from a slot based on an existent game. The feature comes in regularly enough but retriggers don't seem to be as common as on the 5-reel version, but they seldom pay bad returns due to the extra reel which has obviously increased the bonus volatility. All I can say is that if you play Book of Dead regularly, then this game will appeal to you without a doubt...
