Legacy of Dead Features

There are three main bonus features and mechanics tied to Legacy of the Dead. Firstly, we have the free spins bonus that sees players receive a total of 8 free spins whenever three or more wild scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels. As well as this, players will also receive a fixed payout depending on how many wild scatters landed on the reels.

Secondly, we have expanding symbols that come into play during the free spins bonus round. At the start of the free spins 1 regular symbol is chosen to be an expanding symbol (excluding the scatter symbol). They'll cover entire reels and do not need to appear adjacent to matching symbols in order to result in a winning payline. 

Finally, we have the gamble feature, which is a staple of many classic Egyptian-themed slots. Players can double their winnings by correctly guessing the colour of a card. They can also try and quadruple their winnings by correctly guessing the suit of a card. The gamble feature can be played up to five times a row.

Legacy of Dead

Most online slot enthusiasts will tell you that Egyptian-themed slots are a tired, overused concept that developers need to move away from after years of beating what now feels like a dead horse. However, Play'n GO slot Legacy of Dead made us feel differently about them. 

This 5-reel, 10 payline slot isn't exactly mindblowing when it comes to the bonus features and mechanics, but it's most certainly well-polished and actually looks like a slot fit for the 2020s. With wild scatters, expanding symbols, free spins and a gamble feature we thoroughly recommend playing this game if you want to try a classic slot with a modern twist.

Design

Yes, this slot conforms to all of the designs elements you'd expect in an Egyptian-themed slot, however, we have to say it looks absolutely fantastic. The gilded reels are adorned with a stylised royal deck (10, J, Q, K, A) for low-value symbols, high-value symbols are brightly coloured Egyptian gods and rulers: Horus, Pharaoh, Anubis, Tutankhamen. The game's special wild scatter symbol is a golden jewel-encrusted plinth.

Behind the reels is where this game really shines. The design team at Play'n Go have placed the reels within a gorgeously designed tomb that features two flaming plinths, which barely light up the room enough to illuminate the hieroglyphics carved into the walls.

In terms of sound, you'll hear the typical atmospheric, slow-building soundtrack found in most Egyptian-themed slots, it's not the most exciting, but it sets the scene nicely.

Gameplay

In what we assume is a nod to the older-style Egyptian-themed slots from yesteryear, the game's action bar is designed to look like that of a much older title in which players set the number of paylines as well as the number of coins they're betting with.

On the far left-hand side of the screen, players can access an information screen which has a paytable and details on all of the game's bonus features, whilst on the right-hand side of the screen, players can set up to 100 autospins and spin the reels manually. 

Win Potential

One of the more disappointing aspects of this high-volatility slot is the RTP, which sits at a below-average 94.51%, which surprised us considering this game does not feature a progressive jackpot. That said, players can win a maximum of 5,000x their initial stake, which isn't at all bad! 

Our Verdict

Legacy of Dead is a genuinely enjoyable game, we'll be the first to admit it doesn't bring anything to new to the table in terms of classic Egyptian-themed slots, but it is a well-polished game that truly looks the part. If you can look past the low RTP, there are some big payouts to be won.
