Rich Wilde and the Amulet of Dead – Play’n GO
Rich Wilde makes his triumphant return as Play’n Go introduces the 5×3 Rich Wilde and the Amulet of the Dead, with the adventurer return to Egypt to face judgement for his past.
During the game, the pendant is a scatter symbol as well as the wild scatter and can appear on any reel. Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet staked and are added to the payline wins.
Furthermore, the title includes thoth wilds which appear on reels two, three and four and can appear as a stack and will trigger the thoth multiplier.
Up to three fully stacked thoth wilds will activate a maximum of an x5 multiplier which will be applied to all wins on the triggering spin. Moreover, the thoth multiplier is always available in base game and free spins mode.
If the player lands three or more scatters, they will trigger the free spins round and be awarded 10 spins. Before the round commences, a random high-paying or royal symbol will be chosen to act as a special expanding symbol during the entire mode.
After evaluating the wins on every spin, the special expanding symbol may cover all three positions on its reel. This symbol will only expand when there are enough symbols on the reels to create a win.
“Our slot series’ like Rich Wilde, the Arthurian adventures, or our mythological slots give players an overall gaming experience, wrapped in individual titles.
“This means that they know what to expect from any new additions to a series and they can try out and find new favourites, safe in the knowledge they’re getting what they love while enjoying something new; like a sequel to a favourite movie or a new season of a TV show. As this industry matures, this is the next level of entertainment.” – Johan Törnqvist, Play’n Go CEO.
Eye of Dead – Blueprint Gaming
Continuing on the Egyptian theme is Blueprint Gaming’s latest release Eye of Dead, which becomes is the first title to feature the developer’s ‘Premium Play’ functionality.
