Overview of Return of the Dead
Do you think it is possible for something to return when it has never gone away? Return of the Dead developed by Reel Kingdom using the power of Pragmatic Play is one of the new book of Ra styled slot. This slot is terribly like the original in more than one way. Overall, the slot has a strong classic vibe and even though there are large similarities to the original there are a few reasons why fans of Ra may choose this over any of the competition. If you are ready, then let us take a better look at the slot Return of the Dead.
Theme & Design
If there is any scene that is shown again and again it is the sun rising over the Giza Plateau. With camels traipsing through the desert sands, and the pyramids showing majestically in the backdrop overlooking the horizon. This slot is pleasant enough and for the more experienced gamer will probably awaken some nostalgic yearnings. Add the Arabic soundtrack and the typical colour palette that you would find in Indiana Jones and you are ready to play.
Return of the Dead can be played on all devices however depending on how you feel about the main character could influence the way you decide to play this slot. If you do not want Rich Wilde’s missing brother to watch over every one of your moves, then I would suggest using the landscape mode on either a mobile or your desktop. When you are ready to play the game the first thing you must do is choose your bet which starts from 10p per spin up to a maximum of £250 per spin and with such a vast range this is a slot that will appeal to all types of players.
Hardened gamers who are fans of the basic slots that get straight to the point will certainly appreciate the high volatility of this game. It really is all about the free spins however occasionally a high value combination will drop at random making up for any non-winning dry spells. When it comes to the return to player all players will be satisfied as it offers 96.71% which is possibly the highest any Book of slot has offered to date.
You will not get any surprises with regards to the way this slot plays. Landing two or three of a kind starting from the left on your reels will reward you with a pay-out. You will need to land 3 of the lower paying playing cards, 10 through to Ace. However, with the higher paying symbols are represented by the scarab, pharaoh, Horus, all smiling man symbol only two are needed. The values are good and at the higher end with lines that are made up of five high payers you can expect to get wins that start from 75x and go up to 500x your stake.
Are the features all dead?
When it comes to the free spins there are no surprises as ever the key is the Book symbol which plays as both the wild and scatter in this slot. When wild the book replaces any other symbols to create winning combinations, and it is also worth 500x your stake if you manage to land five in a row. As the scatter, landing 3, 4, or 5 in view on your game screen will award you with 2x, 20x or 200x your total bet as well as an additional 10 free spins. However, before the round begins, one symbol is randomly chosen, and this will become the special expanding symbol.
In the free spins, after your wins have been paid this special symbol expands vertically and will cover all three positions on the reel, these expanded symbols will pay even if they are not next door to one another. It is also worth noting that the special symbols will only expand if there are enough in view to create a win. The Books remain in the bonus as the wild and the scatter and landing three simultaneously will reward you with 10 additional free spins, and there are no limits to the number of retriggers that can occur.
Return of the Dead is a slot with simple rules and familiar gameplay which makes it easy to simply sit back, relax and unwind by spinning a reel or two. Even novice slot players will soon get to grips with the gameplay. The free spins are as good as you will find in any other slot and when the high value symbols get chosen for the special expanding one's the wins will soon roll in. if you are au fait with “Ra” style slots, then you will know what to expect.
As there are a vast number of book of slots available why should you pick Return of the Dead over any of the others? Personally, I feel there are two things that make this slot stand out and although the return to player could be one as this is high for this type of slot game. Other than that, you do get the chap with a friendly smile but if I am honest, he is incredibly similar to John Hunter or Rich Wilde!
There is no denying that for some it will be hard to get worked up by yet another similar “Book of” slot. Return of the Dead is a solid game and the default returned to player is a huge positive even if there is nothing new to see. I enjoyed playing this slot and although it took a while I did walk away in profit and with that in mind, I would rate the slot as a solid 7/10.
