Rise of Dead slot review
The casino industry seems enthralled by the Ancient Egyptians, with heaps of slots based on the theme. Play N Go is no exception. After all, it developed the hit Book of Dead back in 2016. Now we return to Egypt but this time, intrepid explorer Rich Wilde isn’t with us and the characters we are about to meet don’t look too friendly…
Rise of Dead introduces the departed denizens of the Egyptian civilisation. After all, we mustn’t forget that the grand structures of the pyramids are burial places. While Book of Dead was mainly about treasure and adventure, Rise of Dead tells a darker tale, with the last occupants of the pyramids coming back to life.

Rise of Dead bonus features
Only royalty was buried in those magnificent pyramidal tombs back in the day so it stands to reason that Play N Go would give Rise of Dead a decaying, decadent style. We see A, K, Q, J and 10 royal symbols and three resurrected pharaohs, complete with their golden adornments and rather sinister-looking scowls. These are the high-value symbols, with five on a payline awarding 25 times the stake.
The scarab beetle acts as the Wild symbol, substituting for all other symbols besides the Scatter. It is also quite valuable in and of itself, awarding a generous 125 times the stake for 5 on a payline.
Mega Stacks feature
This feature is activated during every round of the base game. When triggered, a symbol is randomly selected and 12 consecutive symbol spaces on every reel will then be filled with that symbol. These stacks increase the chances of landing larger winning combinations.
Gift of Gods feature
A randomly activated feature, Gift of Gods kicks into gear during the base game. It fills reels 1, 3 and 5 with the selected Mega Stack symbol. If this symbol happens to be one of the three mummies, payouts could reach as high as 500 times the stake thanks to this feature.
To activate the Ancient Free Spins feature, the player must land 3 scroll Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 4 simultaneously. The feature activates with 10 spins initially and additional spins will be awarded when further scrolls appear. 1, 2 or 3 scrolls will award 2, 4 or 10 additional spins. There is no limit on the number of free spins that can be triggered in this way.
On each bonus spins, one of the royal suit symbols will appear stacked 8 symbols high. The Wild also appears stacked in 6 or 7 vertical reel spaces. The pharaoh symbols expand to cover the whole reel when they form part of a winning combo.
