The dead will rise in this Play’n GO game which sees you find stacks and stacks of symbols across 5 reels full of ancient Egyptian symbols and huge wins.
The Rise of Dead slot is one of those casino games that when you open up, feels like any other generic Ancient Egypt slot game out there. You enter an ancient temple, and who knows what lurks in the shadows?
You have 10 to Ace symbols as the low paying symbols, and then 3 Undead Mummy Pharaohs as the highest paying ones of the lot. It’s all beautifully done, and it’s just creepy enough to be good for Halloween, but also has a fun atmosphere for all year round.
So what makes this Rise of Dead mobile slot so special? Well, to begin with, every single spin has one symbol chosen to randomly come stacked, up to 12 high.
Considering there is only 9 paying symbol on the paytable, the odds are good that one of those symbols will pay out a respective amount.
And that’s not where the stacks end. In fact, during the bonus round all the symbols come stacked in one way or another, especially those very special undead Pharoahs.
We like it when Play’n GO games take familiar mechanics and add their own little twists to make things interesting.
So for example, you get wilds, scatters and free spins, but during the bonus games the low paying symbols are now stacked 8 high, whilst the wild comes stacked 6 or 7 high. Better yet the Pharaohs will expand and cover the reels if they can create a win.
You have a lot of opportunity for wins and there are no multipliers here, so all the wins are about getting those 5 of a kind lined up.
There’s even a random gift of gods feature, where 3 reels will have the same symbols and you get to two reels spinning to get those 5 of a kind. This would be perfectly paired with the equally good Legacy of Egypt slot.

Ancient Free Spins: 3 scatter symbols (the script) will trigger 10 free spins. 1, 2 or 3 scatters during the bonus games will trigger an additional 2, 4 or 10 free spins respectively.
During the bonus game, the low paying symbols are all stacked 8 high, and the wild symbols come stacked 6 or 7 high. The high paying Pharaoh symbols will expand to cover the whole reels if it's possible to create a win.
With only 20 paying symbols this Rise of Dead slot on mobile really surprised us. We figure it was trying to compete with Play'n GO's Book of Dead, we didn't think it would succeed.
And whilst we suspect that Book of Dead's fairly familiar mechanics will win through, we hope fans of one will discover the other because Rise of Dead hits all the right notes.
We have 20 paylines, 5,000 times your bet max wins, lots of stacked symbols, free spins, and mummies. What else could you possibly want?
