A trip to Egypt may be very familiar for players, but Secret of Dead from Play’n GO offers an intriguing blend of the old and the new. Head to the land of the sun and sand to discover the abundance and wealth that the Egyptians enjoyed. And you might even win yourself a cash prize with up to x10,000 potential payout up for grabs.
Egyptian themed slots are one of the most popular genres, and most slot studios have games in this niche. Secret of Dead isn’t particularly ground-breaking, but it’s not exactly like other Egyptian slots. Rather, this online slot is a crazy combination of two of Play’n GO’s previous titles: Scroll of Dead and Legacy of Dead. You won’t have Cat or Rich Wilde by your side, but apart from this, the similarities are hard to miss!
The action in Egypt is focused on a 6x3 board with ten flexible paylines. This means it's possible to play on as few or as many paylines as you want but don't forget: if the payline isn't active you could miss out on prizes if they land. It's a careful balance of budgeting and getting maximum opportunities to win, and there is no right or wrong answer. Volatility is reasonably high, although it's not at its maximum.
Egyptian slots are often styled with stereotypical elements, but that's not the case with this online slot. The symbols on the reels are a giveaway, but apart from this, there are no signs that it's a tour around ancient Egypt.
The standard playing cards are the low pays, and they don’t help to advance the Egyptian theme any further. However, the premium symbols include an asp, a scarab beetle, a cat and the deity, Shai.
The Ankh cross puts in an appearance as the wild, substituting for any of the regular symbols to create a match.
Although the Ankh cross is the wild, it also doubles up as the scatter. Land a trio of scatters on the board, and you'll trigger the free spins bonus. This gives you between 8-15 free spins, with more scatters awarding a higher number of spins.
Before the free spins round starts, players will be notified about one of the symbols that has been chosen at random to become expanding. This means that every time this symbol lands, it will expand to cover the full reel. This symbol will also count no matter where it lands on the board, making it more like a scatter than a regular symbol.
Secret of Dead from Play’n GO doesn’t really offer anything new to players that hasn’t been tried and tested before. However, with a generous potential top prize and easy gameplay, there’s a lot for all players to enjoy with this online slot.
