Slot specialist, Play'n GO, has released their brand-new slot game – Rise of Dead! The 5 reels game with Ancient Egypt subject explores theme and elements of Book of Thoth, the legendary scripture that is known to grant infinite knowledge to its readers.

Packed with Egypt's lore and myths about this Empire's rulers known as Pharaohs, the game's symbols are derived straight from history books as they represent real characters from this civilization's history.

Something People Are Not Familiar With

In that sense, Rise of Dead aligns itself with Vikings…

...which was another successful title by this provider that began its path in 2005 and was among the first to foresee the significance of mobile gaming. Not only is this game using symbols of well-known rulers such as Ramses, some lesser known Pharaohs such as Amenhotep and Thutmose also make their appearance. The Book of Thoth itself also makes an appearance on the reels.

Comments Johan Tornqvist, Play'n GO's CEO:

“Egyptian history and mythology is a very popular subject matter be it in films, TV or games. We always aim not only to do justice to the source of our games inspiration but also to bring a different element to it, something that people may not be familiar with or haven’t seen before.

It’s this that separates our games from many others in the market at the moment and is a testament to the creativity of the company when it comes to creating entertainment.”

The Malta-based developer has become well-known for their historical accuracy and exploration of themes when creating video slots. Recently, they've released The Sword and the Grail, Battle Royal and Rise of Olympus are some of history-inspired slots that are true to actual events.

Fighting the Gladiators

Case in point: Game of Gladiators, ancient Rome inspired game that focuses on battles of these fierce slave-warriors. The 20-payline slot comes with several special features such as Fame, Spear Attach, Sword Attack, Net Attack and Enraged.

However, certainly the most exciting feature of the game... Enter the Arena, that is triggered when scatters land on reels 1, 3 and 5. The feature opens with the choice for players – choosing between Spartacus and Amazonia. For the duration of the entire feature, the chosen warrior will act as a scatter

...a forest-themed 5x4 slot with a visual appeal that is as enchanting as it is vibrant and beautiful. The game features Firefly wilds and Moon scatters, while taking payers to an exciting journey in search of big wins.

Speaking of this release in particular, Tornqvist said that “variety is a hugely important factor in creating the best library of content. Slot gaming has an audience of millions worldwide, and so it’s only natural that there are different tastes and preferences within the market.

You cannot truly be a leading supplier in this industry if you do not supply your partners with a diverse suite of entertainment for their players, to appeal to as large a market as possible.: he concluded.”
