The first thing you’ll notice about Rise of Dead would have to be the lengths the programmers went to for appealing visuals. The all around graphics and mechanics are simply stunning. The gods get bigger and react during certain triggers in the game.
The gods of ancient times are generous when you manage to get some free spins. They offer up multiple massive pay outs when everything aligns in your favour. It was instantly exciting and captivating with a lot of little details that really make you feel you’re in a tomb that has yet to be discovered.
Rise of Dead has 5 reels with 20 pay lines, which is less than some when it comes to your pay line opportunity wins. The symbols that won’t pay much are the A to 10 flush cards. You also have some gruesome looking zombie characters. Actually, those are dead pharaohs and there are three of them. They pay out so don’t judge them too harshly on their unsightly looks.
Tutankhamun – He’s a high paying symbol. When you’re lucky enough to get 5 of him on pay lines, you get x25 your stake.
Scarab – This little iridescent beetle is your wild. Not only that but he has a lot of value, if you get 5 of them on pay lines, your winnings are multiplied 125 times.
First, you’ve got your Mega Stack. You’ll have a symbol that will fill all the spaces of the reels. It’s random so you never know what you’re going to get. Here’s hoping it’s a high paying symbol for a big win.
Gift of Gods
It shows up on random and affects the 1st, 3rd, and 5th reel. The symbols that match on the reel will stay put while the others spin. This is going to give you a greater chance to get combos. If this feature causes a screen full of the highest paying symbol, it’s worth 500 times whatever your stake happens to be. The free spins feature gets your low paying symbols to stack up.
The pharaohs become larger than life in an epic visual show. It takes over the whole reel and as a result, you score a big win.
Ancient Free Spins
Let’s face it, like any other game, the free spins are where it’s at. Rise of Dead doesn’t disappoint and there’s even a good story line here. You’re going to have to earn your right to get into the tomb. You’re going to need to get three scatters simultaneously and they have to be on certain reels. To get yourself into the tomb where the 3 dead pharaohs are, you’ll have to get 3 scatters.
Once you’re here, you get 10 spins for free to start. If you get scatters landing on correct reels, you’ll earn more spins. This can go on for quite a long time with big win chances. Mega Stacks in the feature can bring on large wins but it doesn’t hurt to have those wilds giving you more for your wins. Also, those dead pharaohs expand if they land on a pay line. If you are lucky enough to have your reels full of wilds, this is 2,500 times your stake. Think that’s exciting? It can even be multiplied to a x5,000 stake win.
So many opportunities to win and a lot going on in Rise of Dead. The graphics are fantastic with a constant flame going in the background to light up the tomb. The music is in line with the theme and the story is great.
Some people might not find this game as exciting as the predecessor to Rise of Dead. There was a great story line to the first version and people really liked the last characters. This slot doesn’t really give much indication of what people got attached to in the first game. So if you were a huge fan of Book of Dead, don’t get too excited about reigniting the same interest with this game.
