The Eye of Dead Slot (Blueprint)
Blueprint is developing a new series of slot titles known as Dr Wild. One title that is already part of this series is Tomb of Dead, and now we have Eye of Dead.
In this new title, the hero is Doctor Wild who is on a tour to Egypt. Although I’m not quite impressed with the Egyptian connection, Blueprint is a trusted source of great slots and this is what convinced me to play The Eye of Dead.
Below is my review:
Eye of Dead slot doesn’t offer anything out of the ordinary as the setup used the common one that we find on modern slots. A 5x3 reels design goes into making this title, alongside 10 active lines.
Features are several here, and among them you will get free spins, expanding wilds, Power Play upgrades, upgrading symbols, and scatters.
Betting and Prizes
To play for real money, you will need to place wagers of as little as $0.10 per spin, while the highest that you can use in each round is $10.
The top prizes might not be quite attractive, and the highest that you can get is 500x the stake. This payout is very low considering that Eye of Dead is a medium-high volatility title.
However, the RTP is quite impressive, and at 96.30% it is slightly above the average that is offered by modern slots.
Eye of Dead Slot Features
One of the unique ideas that Blueprint has added to this casino is Power Play upgrades. This title has a total of 3 such additions, and you will get higher chances of triggering them by placing many wagers.
This is how it works:
Level 1 (with a wager of $1.50) - the Scarabs change into Canopic Jars.
Level 2 (with a wager of $2) both the Scarabs and the Jars are changed into Birds.
Level 3 (with a wager of $5) transforms the Scarabs, Jars plus the Birds into Anubis.
Level 4 (highest bet of $10) symbols in the Jar, Scarab, Anubis, or the Bird will be changed into a Golden Mask icon.
The slot offers some free spins as well, and you will need scatters on at least 3 reels to activate them. This way, you can get up to 12 free spins.
While in the free spins mode, extra scatters will help you get expanding wilds. These may land in the middle columns of 2, 3 or 4. These extra scatters can also bring you more spins (usually 1 to 5 rounds).
Theme & Design
Dr Wild is the main character in this title, and he is an adventurer, who has set out in search of treasures. The treasures were left behind by Ancient Egyptians.
The icons that Blueprint has used here include Dr Wild, Golden Masks, Scarabs, Anubis, Canopic Jars, Birds, and the low-value Royals (J-A).
Eye of Dead did not impress me as much as I first thought. Its rewards do no go hand in hand with its volatility level.
Also, the slot uses a very common theme, and there is little that Blueprint has done to make it more unique. Eye of Dead is suitable for casual players.
