The Ghost of Dead slot has 5×3 reels with 10 paylines, where randomly a special symbol may be chosen to act as an expanding scatter pay in the base game, and 2 even in the free spins.
At heart, this is a similar game and a similar slot theme. You have the Canopus as both the wild and scatter. You then get 4 high-paying symbols and 5 royal symbols completing the paytable.
It’s not a particularly unique Egyptian slot theme, but it’s certainly beautiful and with a top win of 5,000x your bet, it’s worth taking a couple of spins to get to the treasure within.
What is an expanding scatter pay symbol? That’s a symbol that expands and covers the whole reel. It will then pay like a scatter, meaning it will pay on all 10 paylines regardless of whether it sits left or right or adjacent to the reels.
And unlike in the Legacy of Dead review, you don’t have to wait for the free spins to get an expanding scatter pay. Instead, the Ghost within the reels of this Ghost of Dead mobile slot will randomly give you one symbol as an expanding scatter pay on any spin.
It doesn’t happy often, but it happens often enough that we didn’t have much time to miss it, and we felt like we could get those top wins in the base game alone.
3 normal scatters will trigger 10 free spins. Unlike the Amulet of Dead slot, however, here you get to pick which of the three symbols will act as an expanding scatter pay: usually low, mid, and high paying symbols.
In essence, you get to pick the volatility of your spins: do you want to risk it all and go for that 5,000x your bet max win with the high-paying Pharaoh symbol? Or do you want to be more even-handed and go for a symbol that appears more often and gives you more wins?
But the real way to win big is to trigger 10 free spins using the spectral scatters. Not only will you be able to choose one of the expanding scatters pays, but the Ghost spin triggers on each spin.
Meaning this Ghost of Dead casino game can give you 2 expanding scatter pays on every free spin, and unlike so many special features, we’ve triggered this one often enough to get excited every time we open it up for a few spins.

Wild and Scatter: The Canopus is both the scatter and the wild symbols, and then it can randomly turn into a spectral scatter. The Spectral scatters trigger the free spins.
Ghost Spin: Activated randomly on any normal spin, this ghost will choose a symbol to be an expanding scatter pay. These can form to create winning combinations across non-adjacent reels.
Scatters and Free Spins: Landing 3 or more spectral scatter symbols on any reel will trigger 10 free spins. You can then choose one of 3 random symbols to behave like an expanding scatter pay. Not just that but the Ghost spin will trigger on each spin, giving you a total of 2 expanding scatter pay symbols on each free spin.
You can retrigger the free spins multiple times.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you can gamble the amount in a simple game of cards. Choose whether the next card in the deck is red or black, and you'll double your win. Choose the suit of the next card on the deck and you'll quadruple your win.
Choose wrong and you lose the original winning gamble.
We have to admit that there's something wonderfully familiar yet unique about this Ghost of Dead slot.
We love recognising the features we know and love from the original Book of Ra Deluxe slot machine, whilst updating all the animations and giving you extra ways to win.
Is this a volatile machine? Yes. Will you find it difficult to get that 5,000x your win? Maybe. But that's the whole point of going treasure hunting in the ancient sacred tombs.
It's a little dangerous, but the rewards are great.
