Rise of Dead

The Sequel to Book of Dead, Rise of Dead is a 5-reel, 20-pay line slot game from Play ‘No Go. The game is equipped with 3 bonus features – the Mega Stacks feature, which fills 12 consecutive spaces on each reel with a random symbol, the Gift of Gods feature in which reels 1, 3 and 5 fill with the same Mega Stack symbol, and finally, the Ancient Free Spins feature where you can win unlimited free spins. Better still, the wild and the royal symbols can appear stacked for even bigger wins. During the game, the pharaoh symbol will expand when forming a win and fill the entire reel.

Theme and Appearance

Aesthetically, Rise of Dead is impressive. The slot is inspired by ancient Egypt and has a dark and unnerving feel. The low-value symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals, while the high-value symbols tie in with the theme of the game. The pharaoh is particularly valuable – land 5 across a pay line and win 25x your stake. The Wild symbol takes the form of a Scarab beetle and replaces all symbols bar the Scatter. The beetle is also the highest paying symbol in the game, with 5 on a pay line giving you 125x your stake. The detailed graphics and enticing storyline definitely make the slot worth playing.

Betting and Prizes

Rise of Dead has 5-reels, 20 pay lines and pays out up to 5,000x your stake per spin. The jackpot is non-progressive, but the money is impressive regardless. With several bonus features including Ancient Free Spins, Mega Stacks and Gift of Gods, the slot will certainly keep you entertained. The game is playable across all devices from 20p to £100 per spin, so it can be enjoyed from your smartphone or tablet whilst on the go. The RTP of Rise of Dead is 96.53%, so pretty average for this kind of slot game.

The highest paying standard symbols are the three pharaohs and Tutankhamen. Landing 5 of these on a bet line will win you 25x your stake. Bigs wins will come from the Scatter and Wild symbols, which take the form of a scroll and a scarab beetle and award you up to 125x your wager. The lowest paying symbols are the suit of cards from 10 to Ace.

Slot Features

Mega Stacks

Rise of Dead has 3 bonus features. The first is the Mega Stacks Feature. During each base game, 1 symbol is selected at random and then fills 12 spaces on every reel. This gives you a better chance of winning the largest possible combination.

Gift of Gods

The next base game feature is the Gift of Gods. Triggered at random, this features causes reels 1, 3 and 5 to be filled with the Mega Stack symbol. This increases your chances of filling the grid with the symbol for bigger wins. If the chosen symbol is high value, you can win up to 500x your stake.

Free Spins

The main bonus feature in Rise of Dead is the Ancient Free Spins feature. This is triggered when 3 Scatter symbols land on reels 1, 3 and 5. You begin the round with 10 free spins. If you land another 1, 2 or 3 Scatters on the reels, you'll be awarded 2, 4 or 10 additional spins. If you keep landing Scatters, the number of free spins up for grabs is unlimited!

With every spin, either the A, K, Q, J or 10 icons will stack to fill 8 consecutive spaces on the reels. The Wild symbol also can appear stacked, taking up 6 or 7 consecutive spaces. During the Free Spins round, the high-value pharaoh icons will expand to across the reel if they form a winning combination. Before they do so, any wins involving the standard symbols or Wilds will be paid out.


Rise of Dead is another excellent slot from Play 'N Go. The graphics are impressive, especially in combination with the sinister music which fits the theme perfectly. The bonus features bring excitement to the game, combining heart-pounding action with plenty of variety.

If you're a fan of ancient-themed slots, Rise of Dead is definitely worth checking out. If you want to play the games in order, you might want to play the prequel, Book of Dead, first. When compared, Rise of Dead has way more features, but the winning potential of Book of Dead is almost double. If Play 'N Go combined the impressive winning potential of their first game with the innovative features of their second, they'd certainly be onto a winner.
