Pilgrim of Dead
Sometimes, all it takes is a twist or two to breathe fresh air into familiar gameplay. If you love “book of” slots, Pilgrim of Dead will be a nice addition to your Play’n GO games collection.
- Expanding symbols can be re-rolled
- Free spins with sticky expanding symbols
- Potential win up to 10,000x your stake
- Customisable 5-mode RTP setup
Classed as highly volatile by the developer, the slot’s scene is set in a mysterious Anubis-guarded temple. The further you go inside the tomb, the more high-paying symbols you’ll come across, including scarabs, mythological heart-weighing scales and ghostly pharaohs. If you’ve played similar slots before, you’ll know what to do, but don’t get too comfortable. Pilgrim of Dead has a twist that promises an adventure like never before.

Pilgrim of Dead was built using the same time-tested Book of Dead formula, which is not hard to guess. But that doesn’t mean that the bonus features here are alike. Hidden inside the free spins bonus round, you’ll find a couple of twists that the iconic edition doesn’t have. We’ll explain in more detail below.
Wilds and Scatters
Wilds and scatters appear as the same golden tomb symbols in Pilgrim of Dead. If they land a part of a winning combination, they’ll fill in for any other symbols to complete the win. Furthermore, 3 or more tombs in view will trigger the free spins bonus round.
When 3 or more wild scatters spin anywhere in view at the same time, they’ll trigger 5 free spins with a special expanding symbol. The triggering tombs will merge into one and explode, revealing the said icon. It can be anything from low to high-paying symbols, except the tomb itself.
If you’re unhappy with the selection, you can re-roll the special symbol, which is a nice touch from the developer. But you can only do so once. You’ll have to accept whatever icon appears next inside the book.
Now that you have your expanding symbol chosen, look out for it hitting the screen at any time – this is where the second twist comes in. The first one to hit each reel becomes sticky for the duration of the round, increasing your chances of winning more during free spins.
FInally, you can extend your gameplay as an added bonus if you succeed at landing an extra 3 tomb scatters during free spins.
The game’s win potential is another welcome deviation from the original Book of Dead title. At 10,000x your stake, Pilgrim of Dead’s offer is twice as big as its predecessor’s jackpot.
The key stats, however, have mostly stayed the same, meaning that while the default RTP rate is 96.20%, you should still watch out for a multi-mode arrangement. Otherwise, the volatility is high, giving you a chance to win big.
Thanks to the game’s complete HTML5 setup, you can enjoy spinning Pilgrim of Dead on any of your favourite Android or iOS mobile device even if you’re away from home.
