Unibet Casino has recently added the latest slot from Play’n GO titled Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead which is a new Egyptian themed “Book Style” slot. This new character Cat Wilde is the daughter of the famed explorer Rich Wilde used in many of Play’n GO’s most successful slot releases.
Whilst this release does introduce a few new elements and quirks to the Book style slot genre, in essence, the basic mechanics will play out in a very similar style to Book of Dead. It is worth noting that with the introduction of expanding Wild symbols into Wild Reels the payable has suffered somewhat for the regular symbol payouts, there is still a max potential of over 5000x stake from the Explorer symbols but there is a distinct difference in winning values when comparing the regular and premium symbols in the paytable.
This is mainly down the addition and frequency of the wild symbols, rather than having a scatter that also acts as wild the wilds on this slot are independent and importantly will also act as a regular expanding symbol during the bonus feature.
For example, a full screen of expanded symbols could be a mixture of wilds and the specifically chosen symbol at the start of the bonus round making full screens of matching symbols a lot easier. Given the multiple wilds can land in view and expand this also boosts the potential of the base game also when multiple wild reels come into play!
