Free Spins

To activate the free spins round you are required to land three or more Scatter Book symbols on the reels. Here you will be awarded 10 free spins to enjoy.

Before the free spins rounds starts, the Book flickers through its pages until a special letter or symbol appears on the left hand page. 

This special symbol will act as an expanding symbol during the entire round. During any spin in this period, if three scattered Books appear they will extend the round by an additional 10 free spins.


The book symbol also acts as a Wild symbol when presented on the reels by itself. As a Wild the symbol has the ability to substitute for all other symbols. 

Gamble Feature

At any point during the main game after you have been awarded a win, you will be provided with the option whether you wish to gamble on your winnings generated by the win or you not. 

If you choose to gamble you will be given the choice to pick between  the correct color of the card - red or black or the suit of the card.

The gamble feature can be played up to 5 times in a row and can be stopped after each round by clicking collect your winnings. If you are unfortunate to lose a round then you will forfeit the winnings. 

Our Verdict

Book of Dead is one of the original “book of” editions. Nowadays you can find many different “book of” slots which are similar clones to this, although none of them quite reach the standard of the original. 

Book of Dead is a great game, which provides players with hours of entertainment although the slot may require some patients. Triggering the features is not a simple task and can be rather time consuming. However, once  you manage to trigger the free spins and expanding symbols this is where you start to see the pound signs in your eyes. 

Come and join Rich Wilde on his wild adventures and see if you can help him unravel the story of the Book of Dead! Who knows what exciting treasures you might find along your way!
