Return of the Dead Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Return of the Dead Slot (Pragmatic Play)The Book of Ra genre has become a favourite to many developers, and Pragmatic Play has not been left behind. The developer has added their own title, known as Return of the Dead.

The slot offers the usual Boof of Ra features on its Egyptian theme.

This is my unbiased review of Return of the Dead:

Game Set-Up

Return of the Dead uses the common 5x3 reels, with only 10 pay lines.

For the main features, you get to work with the wild/scatter icons, expanding symbols, and some free spins.

Betting and Prizes

The slot allows as little as $0.10 per spin, while the highest amount that you can use per round is $250 per spin.

As a Pragmatic Play title, Return of the Dead will developer fair top payouts, and the highest that the slot can deliver is 5,000x the stake.

The RTP of 96.71% that the developer has announced is within the average of what you get from most modern free slots.

Return of the Dead Slot Features

The most notable feature is the Wild/Scatter Book symbol. This feature is capable of paying up to 500x the stake if they fill up the active lines.

In most cases, the wild will work as a replacement for the regular symbols, where it will assist the lower value combos to deliver wins.

To activate the free spins, a minimum of 3 Book symbols must simultaneously appear in view, this will give you up to 10 free spins.

As you advance on the game, a regular symbol will be transformed into a special icon. At this level, it will expand on each reel where it lands.

Once the regular combinations of each free spin have been formed and paid, the special symbols which are in view will expand on their reels.

On a lucky day, the special icon can land and expand on all the five reels, which is very beneficial to the free spins. This way, you can be able to respin the free spins.

Theme & Design

The slot is purely a cloning Book of Ra, and Pragmatic Play did not bother to make even the slightest of changes to the theme which remains Egypt-inspired.

The concept is quite interesting, and the developer has provided a modern-day adventurer, who is on a mission to hunt for treasures in the available pyramids.

In the background are some pyramids as well as a desert.

The slot’s symbols include a Book, Scarab, Pharaoh, the Treasure Hunter (jackpot), Horus, and some Royals.


Return of the Dead is a great choice for players who are already familiar with the Book of Ra series. I find this title way better than most other within this genre.

Pragmatic Play offers a very fair RTP of 96.71% which is one of the reasons that make the title suitable for all levels of players.
