Ghost of Dead Slot (Play n Go)

Ghost of Dead Slot (Play n Go)We first saw the Book of Dead, then we went to Scroll of Dead, plus the Legacy of Dead, and now, Play n GO appears ready to expand this list of slots with their newest slot titled, Ghost of Dead.

It’s a Book-style type of series with some unique areas, and the developer has done a lot to improve on the wildly common and heavily imitated original.

Join me and let us see what we have inside:

Game Set-Up

Ghost of Dead offers the standard 5x3 reels with just 10 lines, a common set-u for many Book-style slots.

It uses a great mix of features like the wild/scatters icons, free spins (have expanding symbols), and a retrigger among others.

Betting and Prizes

The slot offers 10 lines, but and I love the fact that I was in total control of the bet amount.

As a real money gamer, I wanted to taste the efficiency of this game, and so I started spinning the rounds using the least possible amount of $0.10 per spin. The highest allowed per spin here is $100.

A majority of book-style slots offer a jackpot of 5,000x, but this time around, Playn Go has offered a higher amount, and Ghost of Dead can pay up to 10,000x the stake from one spin.

It is still volatile, in fact, the volatility is much higher, but the RTP of 96.21% is quite decent. But as you know with Play n Go, allows casinos to lower the RTP so be sure to check.

Ghost of Dead Slot Features

Book-style games seem to have everything in common, but some improvements are always possible.

The first of the features is the mixed wild/scatter icon, and on this slot, the feature is represented by Canopus, the god with a jackal’s head. It serves as a substitute feature, making it helpful in forming wins.

However, with 3+ such icons landing in view, I received 10 free spins.

Also, you can receive the Awakened Free Spins with the help of special Spectral scatters. This way, you can play using 2 expanding icons, instead of 1.

Last but not least is the Ghost Spin, and this is a randomly triggered spin, that allows the use of an expanding symbol. This allows you an opportunity to form combinations on all the active lines.

Theme & Design

The developer maintained the original theme that is dedicated to Ancient Egypt. However, I also noted some new additions as well.

Just as its title suggests, the slot is a ghost-related game, and it uses the Egyptian variant (precisely, the spirit of Unas, the ancient pharaoh).

For the low paying symbols, we have Royals, while better-paying ones include Ghost, Ankh, Anubis, Scarabs, as well as Snakes.


Overall, Play n GO has done very well with Ghost of Dead, and the slot is quite interesting, and it offers something unique to the Book category.

It’s a game that stands out from the crowd, and from my experience with it, I can recommend it to all levels of payers.
