Book of Dead Online Casino Betting Guide

 

popular slot games

We have already written on Las Vegas Casino about why Book of Dead is such a popular slot, but for UK online casino veterans it’s easy to forget that for the many new players who join Las Vegas Casinoieach day, they might not know how to play or what its really about. The same goes for our new online casino players in Canada, New Zealand, Finland and the Republic of Ireland: they might have heard that Book of Dead is among the most popular slots, but what makes a popular slot game and why is Book of Dead always up there in the list of most popular slots. Is it worth playing and if so how do you play? Below we hope to answer those questions as it is clear from talking to our customers that Book of Dead is one of the first things they look for on an online casino.

 

Book of Dead Online Slot: What is it?ew

From the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb to the huge success of Indiana Jones, the sheer romance and mystery of Ancient Egypt has cast its spell over us.

As such, it was a clever backdrop for Play’n Go to create a popular slot game like Book of Dead set in Ancient Egypt.

Perhaps it is the sheer strangeness of the civilization combined with its undoubted sophistication that Book of Dead appeals to: pyramids, temples, the curious process of mummification and of course long-lost tombs filled with untold riches surrounding the great Pharaohs buried within. The belief was that the dead would need everything in the afterlife – from their organs (hence the perfectly preserved bodies) to this quite extraordinary wealth.

Not only were the pyramids quite extraordinary architectural and engineering achievements – built without modern machinery – the art work found within tombs and the seemingly bizarre rituals of Ancient Egypt have spawned countless books, films and stories, often involving intrepid explorers. The Book of Dead has been a source of particular intrigue.

All this is deeply rich material for anyone designing a popular slot game for an online casino.

And for a largely UK online casino such as Las Vegas Casino, the appeal of this popular slots game is evident. After all, it was the British archaeologist Howard Carter who discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb in the 1920s. He was a compelling, complicated, brilliant man, widely rumoured to have had an affair while out among the pyramids with Lady Evelyn Herbert, wife of the Duke of Carnarvon. And we know (ask Immortal Romance fans) how many players of popular slots like a bit of romance.

The epitaph on Carter’s grave, by the way, is particularly beautiful: “May your spirit live, may you spend millions of years, you who love Thebes, sitting with your face to the north wind, your eyes beholding happiness,” taken from the Wishing Cup of Tutankhamun. What, one wonders, would Carter make of a popular online slot game like Book of Dead?

The Book of Dead in its real form was a text for a funeral and was written on papyrus and used from the beginning of the so-called “New Kingdom” – around 1550 BCE.

It consisted of a number of magic spells. These were meant to help the dead person through the Duat – the Ancient Egyptian term for the underworld and into the afterlife. Like many important religious texts, it was written over hundreds of years by many different priests. It also depicts numerous ancient gods including Anubis and Thoth.

It would be put in the coffin or burial chamber and came in many different forms, so really there was no one Book of Dead, but rather many Books of Dead. Particular spells were considered more relevant to different people, so those spells would be contained in their Book of Dead. There are said to be 192 spells in Book of Dead but these cannot be found in a single manuscript. Book of Dead seems, to us, an odd mix of the religious and the magical, even putting spells on the Gods to make them look after the newly dead person into the afterlife.

Ancient Egyptians believed that knowing the name of something gave power over it; so Book of Dead enables its owner with the mystical names of many of the entities he would encounter in the afterlife, giving him power over them. A Book of Dead has been found that was 40 meters longs, no doubt the property of royalty, before scribes and priests were also given their own Book of Dead. Text was typically in black ink in a Book of Dead, with the spells in red.

There are still many a Book of Dead waiting translation around the world – who knows what spells they might contain, and what this could mean for a new popular slot game to intrigue and even spook players on UK online casinos in the modern age.

How Book of Dead Became Such a Popular Slot

Play’n Go released the popular slot Book of Dead back in 2016 – itself almost pre-history in the fast moving world of online slots or a UK online casino. But it soon caught on and Book of Dead became one of the most popular slots in the UK, Canada and elsewhere – challenging established popular slots in the online casino market such as Starburst.

There was though some legal tension around Book of Dead as Novomatic, a rival game supplier to Play’n Go, claimed that Book of Dead bore more than a passing resemblance to their own popular slot game, Book of Ra. Unlike Book of Dead, Book of Ra had been around since 2005 – making it one of the pioneering popular slot games of the online casino era.

Whatever the rights and wrongs of that argument, Book of Ra now looks (to us at least) pretty dated. Book of Dead, in contrast, looks as good as any popular slot to be found in a UK online casino.

Like earlier popular slot games in the series, Book of Dead follows the adventures of Rich Wilde.

Just FYI, Book of Dead Slot Game is not the only Rich Wilde adventure found amid popular slots. He is the star in South America in Aztec Idols slot, India (Pearls of India slot), Tome of Madness (this followed Book of Dead) , Shield of Athena (this stars Rich Wilde’s daughter, Cat), Doom of Dead and Amulet of Dead popular slot game.
For those of you experienced playing online casino games, this popular slot has a five reel, three row and ten fixed payline. There is also a special bonus feature available in Book of Dead that can be triggered at random.

You get caught up in the adventure of this popular online slot due to the first rate graphics and music, with symbols representing both Rich Wilde and Ancient Egypt with Anubis, Tutankamum, and Ra all emerging.
