Secret of Dead Slot (Play n Go)

Secret of Dead Slot (Play n Go)Play n Go is one of the slot developers with a huge appetite for Ancient Egypt-themed slots, and this urge does not look like it's going to die down soon.

The developer has continuously added to this list, and the latest title to join the genre is Secret of Dead.

This is a new addition to the Book of Dead series, and we will look deeper into what you can expect from the slot as a real money player:

Game Set-Up

Secret of Dead uses 6 reels, and it is surprising to see just 10 pay-lines on the game.

It comes with a couple of interesting features that include mixed wild/scatters, free spins, Expanding Symbols, Scatter Pays, and Wilds among others.

Betting and Prizes

To place a real money wager, I was allowed to use as little as $0.10, but the betting range goes all the way to $100 per spin.

The payouts that Play n GO has offered are truly impressive, and by this I mean, up to 10,000xs, the stake is possible from just one bet.

This is a very high payout compared to what we have seen on other Book types of slots. However, you should be ready to battle extremely high volatility.

On the other side, the slot offers a very decent RTP of 96.20%, but as usual with Play n Go, there are lower options available. It is important to check with your online casino to confirm what they are offering.

Secret of Dead Slot Features

Although the slot relies on the Book-style mechanics, I noticed that there is a slight difference, which is the addition of an extra reel.

Also, you find that the Book icon has been replaced by the Ankh, and it helps as the main symbol. It serves as both the wild and the scatter depending on how many times it appears.

It's interesting to have the Ankh pay as a scatter, and this is what happens here. This feature is capable of paying as much as 250x the stake. The same scatters that got you paid can be used to trigger between 8 to 15 free spins.

Theme & Design

From my experience with the Book-style slot, I can confidently say that Ancient Egypt has been used as a source of inspiration for 90% of the Book-style video slots.

This is the same case with the Book of Dead slots, and Secret of Dead has not been left out. I love the design quality of this game and it is just what you would expect from Play n GO.

However, there is nothing new when it comes to the symbols, and the developer goes with the usual ones that include Royals (low-value), snakes, scarabs, Ankh, Bastet, and Cleopatra.


If we consider the Book-style mechanics, Secret of Dead may not be all that special of a game. The only notable uniqueness is its use of 6 reels instead of the usual 5.

However, when it comes to the top payout, the slot does pretty well, but you will have to battle unusually high volatility if you plan to play the slot for real money.
