Search for Hidden Riches Within the Pyramids in “Rise of Dead” a New Slot From Play’n GO!
Unibet Casino has recently added a new slot from Play’n GO titled Rise of Dead, a 20 payline, high variance slot with an Egyptian theme.
Similar in style and design to the very popular Book of Dead slot this new release does come with a few unique changes to set these titles apart, along with more paylines there is also a randomly activated base game feature called Gift of Gods which adds matching stacked symbols to reels 1,3 and 5, along with Mega Stacks of matching symbols chosen on each spin and of course a very exciting free spins round with expanding high paying symbols.
Whilst this slot is definitely not quite as volatile as Book of Dead there is definitely quite a bit variance in the bonuses and some nice base game hit potential too, if you have found Book of Dead to be just too brutal for your taste then this offering certainly offers a very nice balance of variance and win potential.
In our playtests we had bonus rounds in the range of 15x stake to well over 350x stake, with fully stacked 5 of a kind wins forming the majority of these wins.
The main bonus round is triggered by the usual 3 scatters that are only present on reels 1, 3 and 5 and the good news here is that during the free spins you can earn plenty more free spins for any additional scatters landing in view, this feature can really help to extend the bonus rounds into 20+ free spins.

The Mega Stacks are stacks of 12 matching symbols on the reels that can be any high or low paying symbol from the paytable, this change with each spin and allow fully stacks symbols to completely cover the reels.
Gift of Gods
The Gift of Gods feature triggers randomly in the base game placing Mega Stacks on the first, third and fifth reel and fixing them in place, the others reels will spin normally but also have these Mega stacked symbols present on them allowing for full-screen matching symbol wins.
The free spins round is triggered by landing the Scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 granting an initial 10 free spins.
The main feature here is that any of the high paying picture symbols will expand over the reels when they form a win fully covering the reel.
Mega Stacks are still active and Wilds are now also included during the bonus round.
Any additional Golden Scroll Scatter symbols that land in view during the bonus round grants extra free spins as follows.
- 1 Scatter awards two additional free spins
- 2 Scatters award four additional free spins
- 3 Scatters award ten additional free spins
And the good news is that there is no upper limit to the amount of free spins you can receive from this feature!
Rise of Dead Slot
The Rise of Dead Slot is a nice addition to the Play’n GO range of slots, whilst the theme is definitely overused, and there isn’t anything groundbreaking in terms of the features (expanding symbols) it does offer a nice solid high variance slot that isn’t quite in the brutal territory of the super high variance Book of Dead.
In our playtests, we did manage some very impressive wins of over 400x stake, these kind of wins were entirely down to 1 spin where the fully expanded high paying symbols covered all the reels (see screenshots), generally though the bonuses were in the 50x to 100x range as its quite easy to get stacked 3 of a kind wins regularly.
Overall its a really solid slot, capable of some very impressive wins and a little more forgiving than its big brother Book of Dead slot, so well worth checking out.
