Renowned slot machine developer Pragmatic Play has added another book-themed slot to its collection. This is after the company announced the release of Kingdom of the Dead, following in the footsteps of the company’s top hits: Book of the Fallen and Book of Kingdoms.
Kingdom of the Dead is a classic-looking slot is played on a standard 5 reels and 3 rows with up to 10 bet lines. You will find the traditional 10-A card symbols on the reels, rewarding you with 0.5x to 10x the stake for matching at least three of them on a pay line.
Conversely, the premium symbols are Anubis, the pharaoh, the scarab, and the adventurer. The adventurer with a scarf wrapped around his neck is the highest-paying symbol, rewarding gamers up to 500x the stake if they can match at least two icons on a line.
Meanwhile, the game’s wild (a book symbol) is arguably the most precious icon. This symbol replaces all other symbols when it lands, helping gamers form even bigger wins. Remember, matching 2, 3, 4, or 5 wild icons can reward you with 1x, 10x, 100x, or 500x multipliers. In addition, the wilds don’t need to land on a specific bet line to pay out.
The wild symbol also acts as the game’s scatter when it lands on the reels. You will receive 10 bonus spins when you collect at least three wilds. Before the free spins mode starts, the game will allow players to play either of the two bonuses.
When playing the Fixed Mystery symbol bonus game, the game will randomly choose an expanding symbol which remains active for the entire duration. This conventional mechanic is a mainstay in other book-style slot machines.
Players can also play the Random Mystery symbol bonus game, where each spin has a different expanding symbol. Note that the Kingdom of the Dead slot machine provides players with infinite retriggers after landing three or more scatters in either bonus. Each free spin retrigger has 10 bonus spins, boosting your chances of winning the 10,000x top prize.
Pragmatic Play also understands that some players may be a bit impatient to play the bonus rounds. In that case, the game houses a Bonus Buy feature, where gamers can purchase 10 bonus rounds for 120x the stake. However, due to regulatory restrictions, this feature and AutoPlay aren’t part of the branded slot in the United Kingdom.
Kingdom of the Dead is a testament to Pragmatic Play’s commitment to releasing at least eight slots each month. This month, the company has already released top hits, including Jane Hunter and the Mask of Montezuma, 3 Dancing Monkeys, and Wild Celebrity Bus Megaways.
