Pragmatic Play releases new Egyptian book-themed slot Kingdom of the Dead

iGaming content provider Pragmatic Play has announced the release of Kingdom of the Dead, a new Egyptian book-themed slot. With this title, the supplier says it is “reimagining” the classic book genre.

Played across 5×3 reels, the title has symbols depicting Anubis, scarabs and pharaohs that must form a matching combination across the slot’s 10 paylines to award a win. These are joined by a book scatter that also acts as a wild, substituting all other symbols in-game and making it easier to create winning lines.

Three or more of these scatters are required to enter the free spins round, where players are initially given the choice between two varying bonuses. In the Fixed Mystery Symbol bonus, a special expanding symbol will be selected and used throughout all subsequent spins, aligning with the conventional mechanics found in other book-style titles.

Alternatively, players can activate the Random Mystery Symbol bonus where the selected special expanding symbol changes with each spin. Across both bonuses, an unlimited number of retriggers can be activated for landing three or more scatters, awarding an additional 10 spins. 

Kingdom Of The Dead simultaneously subverts and adheres to various popular mechanics to join other recent titles such as Jane Hunter and The Mask Of Montezuma, 3 Dancing Monkeys and Wild Celebrity Bus Megaways, which reside within a collection of over 300 unique titles in Pragmatic Play’s award-winning games portfolio,” said the company.

Pragmatic Play currently produces up to eight online slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino, Virtual Sports and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API.

Kingdom of the Dead follows the launch earlier this month of the Aztec empire-themed slot Jane Hunter and the Mask of Montezuma. The title takes players on “a journey deep into the Aztec Tombs in search of hidden treasures.”
