Ghost of Dead: Slot Overview

Amongst the hundreds of 'book of' slots out there, some naturally rise to the top of the pile. One of these is Play'n GO's iconic Book of Dead. It might not technically do anything dozens of others don't, but the way it went about expanding symbols then linking them into potential full-screen wins was particularly satisfying. Book of Dead strongly resonated with players keen on a style of gaming that started in a previous slot epoch by Book of Ra.

Ghost of Dead is a follow-on of sorts to Book of Dead, possessing a similar look, though one which delves into a ghostlier side of tomb raiding than most others. Interestingly, Ancient Egyptians didn't view tomb-robbing with the same level of scorn as we do now. The activity apparently played an important function in the society of the day. Some might say it's like the way Novomatic has more or less shrugged their shoulders at the hordes of imitators that have since swooped in and copied their early classic.


In Ghost of Dead, a Pharaoh called Unas has been resurrected and is looking for mortals worthy of receiving his bounteous gifts. In other words, players find themselves in a shimmeringly lit underground tomb, while the 5-reel, 10-payline game grid shines brightly gold by contrast. There's a nod to Book of Dead, but the symbols have been shaken up and give Ghost of Dead a different feel, especially by Una's unusual silver mask.

Playable on any device, Ghost of Dead provides stakes from 1 p/c to £/€100 per spin. Bets can be so low because players activate anywhere from 1 to 10 paylines, though this does limit the effectiveness of the full reel expanding symbols as you will see. As expected, volatility is high, rated at 9 out of 10, whilst RTP is variable as ever, so be on the lookout for the default value of 96.21% as it’s the most generous option of the lot.


The core rule is to land matching symbols in adjacent reels across active paylines to score a coin win. Five 10-A card rank symbols, fashioned in flowing Egyptian font, start the paytable off, joined by higher value Ankhs, serpents, scarabs, and masks. These latter four symbols are worth 60 to 1000 times the bet staked per line for a five of a kind combination.


Ghost of Dead: Slot Features
Ghost of Dead has 3 bonus features. They all give you a free spin or free spins with a special expanding symbol basically. In the Awakened Free Spins feature, you simply get a 2nd special expanding symbol on each free spin.



The Free Spins feature is played when you land 3 or more wild/scatter symbols on any reels. With 10 free spins awarded, you choose 1 of 3 random royal of high-paying symbols which act as the special expanding symbol.

Landing 3 or more scatters will retrigger the feature with another 10 free spins added. You can win an unlimited number of extra free spins. So far, so standard. The special expanding symbol pays scatter style too.



Awakened Free Spins feature

During the free spins, scatters can transform into spectral scatter symbols. 3 or more of them will trigger the Awakened Free Spins feature with 10 awakened free spins.

Like the free spins, you choose 1 of 3 random royal of high paying symbols to become the special expanding symbol. However, a second special expanding symbol is randomly chosen on each awakened free spin. This dramatically increases your chances of landing winning combinations.

Special expanding symbols pay scatter style – i.e. not on adjacent reels. Finally, 3 or more spectral scatters will give you 10 extra awakened free spins, with no limits.




Ghost Spin feature
The Ghost Spin feature can activate randomly on any base game spin. A special expanding symbol is randomly chosen and this can be a royal or high paying symbol (all symbols bar the wild/scatter).


All instances of this chosen symbol will then expand to take over its reel. A payout then occurs if it leads to a winning combination. The good news is that wins can be formed across non-adjacent reels.


Ghost of Dead: Slot Verdict
Play'n GO has displayed quite an affinity with this format, releasing games ranging from fairly close copies to others with tinkered features to produce original experiences. Into the genre wafts Ghost of Dead, a spectral version to expand the venerable range. Not only is this one slightly ghostlier than others, but it also does free spins differently. Well, slightly differently, Ghost of Dead is no Ra revolution, more a patch or bug fix rather than a total update. It does everything you'd expect a capable 'book' slot to do while sprinkling an extra feature or two on top.


One of the benefits is the random Ghost Spins, mixing up the base game. Not a game-changer, yet it breaks up the rhythm while adding slightly more depth and a dash of tension. Alterable paylines are a boon for players who either want to squeeze as much mileage out of their bankroll as possible or challenge themselves to some one-line theatrics. The main event is as dependable as ever for these sorts of games. Managing to activate Awakened Free Spins means you get two expanding symbols. Having two might be better than one, but if bigger is better, a game like Legacy of Dead might be an option too. Also from Play'n GO, Legacy of Dead turns another pay symbol into an expander every time the feature is retriggered. Then there's Book of Truth from TrueLab that has True Free Spins where every single pay symbol is an expander.


Ghost of Dead is a bit like a cheesy crust pizza - you get all the benefits of a regular 'book' game with a few extras thrown in on the side. Ghost of Dead isn't a major innovation, it doesn't do much you can't find elsewhere already and gamblers could have gotten through life just fine without it. However, Play'n GO has a knack for making these sorts of games and Ghost of Dead is as playable as any other well designed 'book' slot.
