How to Play
Rich Wilde and the Amulet of Dead is a five reel adventure-themed slot with 10 paylines. You can use the controls beneath the game board to select a coin value, a number of coins to bet, and the number of paylines you’d like to bet along. Your total bet per spin will be your selected coin value, number of coins, and number of paylines, all multiplied together. Once you hit the blue spin button to set the reels rolling, you win by matching three or more symbols from left to right along the active paylines.
If you’ve played the original Book of Dead slot, you’ll recognise most of the symbols in Amulet of Dead. There are playing card symbols from 10 to A, which offer the game’s lowest payouts. The higher paying symbols depict artifacts and characters from Egyptian mythology, like the god Anubis and a Pharaoh’s golden Mask. The devilishly handsome Rich Wilde himself is naturally the highest paying symbol in the game and landing five of these in a row will reward you with a whopping 1000x your bet.
New to this game are the Thoth Wild symbols, which can stack to fill whole reels and will substitute for any symbols except Scatters. Landing one, two or three stacked Thoth Wilds will also increase your win multiplier by 2x, 3x, or 5x, respectively. Finally, there are the Pendant Scatter symbols, which will earn you 10 Free Spins when you land three Scatters anywhere across the reels. Unusually for an online slots game, the Scatter symbol is also Wild, like the Thoth symbols, so will substitute for any other symbol to complete wins.
Rich Wilde and the Amulet of Dead’s main bonus feature offers free spins with expanding symbols.
