For those of you who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two.
The highest paying regular symbol in Secret of Dead is the God of Fate and Destiny, Shai, this is then followed by Bastet (Cat), Scarab Beetle and Uraeus (Snake). Lower paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten.
The Wild symbol also acts as the Scatter symbol and substitutes for all symbols except for the special Expanding Symbol in Free Spins.
Secret of Dead Base Game and Features
Secret of Dead is a 6 reel slot with 10 fixed paylines. In order to form a win you will need to connect 3 or more (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbols) from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
Like many akin to it, Secret of Dead is rather basic in the Base Game. Those of you familiar with the likes of those before it will be well acquainted with what can seem like a boring Base Game, but there’s at least a Gamble Feature should you choose to utilise that.
Secret of Dead Free Spins
Landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters in any position on the reels, awards 8, 10, 12 and 15 Free Spins respectively.
During the Free Spins round, one High or Low paying symbol will be chosen at random to be the special Expanding symbol. When enough of the chosen symbol lands on the reels, it will automatically expand to fill the entire reel. The chosen symbol does not need to be adjacent to each other to count for expansion.
If you happen to get the highest paying symbol as your special Expanding symbol, Shai pays Double when expanded!
Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols, retriggers the Free Spins round, awarding an additional +5 Free Spins. In addition to this, you will also recieve an extra Expanding symbol.
Once the Free Spins round comes to an end, you will again be given the option to Gamble or Collect your winnings.
Secret of Dead: Our Verdict
Secret of Dead is another to join the overwhelming collection of Book Style slots, but we can’t say that it’s a title that stands out compared to the rest of them.
If you’re a die hard fan of this genre of game, then you may appreciate Secret of Dead and its simplicity. The added sixth reel adds an element of play that might do well in giving players something to be excited about, but it’s not much, and it’s not like it’s something we haven’t seen before.
You could easily put Secret of Dead under a microscope to compare every little detail before comparing it to others like it, but there’s not really much utility in doing that, as they’re all extremely similar at their core.
The maximum available win in Secret of Dead is 10,000x, which is a formidable figure considering it’s a book game, but overall Secret of Dead is very standard.
