It’s time to head back into that tomb and have the kind of adventure that is wonderfully familiar, but with just that little extra thrill. Welcome to the pack Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead slot.
For those who’ve played on the Book of Dead slot by Play’n GO, you’re are going to love this new game. Why? Because the first game was all about Rich Wilde and his crazy adventures, well, now the next generation is here and she’s even spunkier than her dad.
The Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead mobile slot has Cat as the main character and the highest paid symbols. She’s heading down a lost pyramid to find treasures but instead is faced by the Pharaohs who do not want to give up their treasure.
Still, with a little coaxing, you can change this from a Doom of Dead to a Riches of Dead people, with just a few expanded wilds over any of these 5 reels and 10 paylines.
The pharaohs are wild and can show up on all 5 reels. When they do they expand to cover the whole reel. It’s a nice little touch to what is a fairly standard Ancient Egypt Pharaoh slot theme, even if they steal some of the imagery from their past slots – just look at the Pharaohs in the Rise of Dead review, they are definitely related to the ones in the Doom of Dead.
But that’s ok, because the 3 scatter symbols will show up and remind you why Cat is better than her father, and it’s all about those Pharaohs.
Mostly because the free spins in this Doom of Dead slot have similar mechanics to Book of Dead; you get 10 free spins and one symbol will be chosen to act like an expanded scatter.
What does that mean? It means that this one symbol will expand to cover the whole reel. Better yet it pays like a scatter, which means that it pays over all 10 paylines regardless of whether its on reel 1, 2 and 3 or reels 2, 3 and 5 or any combination. It’s beautiful to see.
But what does make it special is that you get expanded wilds in the free spins and the base game.
Expanded scatter symbols and expanded wilds together creates absolute magic. It doubles your chances of getting that top win of 5,000x your bet.
You do need to get Cat Wilde as the expanded scatter, but even a Queen or an Ace symbol will give you 100x your bet or more on a good round. The free spin bonus is wonderful and always fun to have.
But its those long-dead kings that will have you bow down to the new queen of slots. Move over Rich, Cat is the new mobile slot game in town.
Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead is a 5×3 reel slot with 10 payline, expanded wilds, scatter and free spins with expanded scatter pays. It’s a homage to the Book of Ra Deluxe slot, but with lots more wilds.

Expanded Wild: There are 3 types of wild Pharoah symbols that can appear on any of the 5 reels and expand to fill the reel if a win can be created over any of the 10 paylines.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get a scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you'll get 10 free spins. At this point, one of the symbols will be chosen to pay as an expanded scatter pay. That means that that symbol will now expand to cover the reel it's on, and pay like a scatter. So it doesn't need to be left to right to get a win on a payline, and on each case, you'll get wins on all 10 paylines. You also have the expanded wild symbol.
We are a big fan of this sequel, mostly because what you get is the same top prizes, same paylines, but expanded wild symbols.
Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead mobile slot is a little bit of a cheat, in as much as they don't do anything all that different and it takes inspiration from several Play'n GO mobile slot games.
But that didn't stop us from enjoying it and to recommend it to anyone who loves expanded scatter pay slots and brilliant free spins bonuses. Sometimes, it's ok not to try and re-invent the wheel, but to head right back into those ancient Egyptian tombs to find the lost treasure your dad missed the first time around.
