In Pilgrim of Dead, Play’n GO revisits the Dead series with an exciting adventure set in ancient Egypt. This latest installment follows a lone traveler on a quest to find the Book of Life, which is hidden within a mysterious tomb. Players will join the pilgrimage and help the traveler uncover the book as well as other riches along the way.
The game is a classic Ancient Egyptian slot with a spooky twist and continues the theme from its previous installments like Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead from 2016. If three or more tomb Scatters are landed, the Book of Life will be revealed, and the player will receive the Special Expanding symbol that fans of the Dead series will recognize.
During Free Spins, the first special symbol to land on each reel will become sticky and can expand, increasing the player’s potential prize. Fans of the Dead series, including Rise of Dead, Legacy of Dead, Scroll of Dead, Ghost of Dead, and Secret of Dead, will be pleased to know that the game features Expanding Symbols and Sticky Wilds.
Players have the option to stick with their pre-existing symbol or use a one-time Re-Roll opportunity to potentially increase their payout by choosing a higher-paying symbol. The first time the chosen symbol lands, it will light up in gold and remain stuck to the reel, creating a visually stunning moment. Book of Dead fans will love the nostalgic feel of this game as well as the added layer of mystery to the gameplay.
According to George Olekszy, the Head of Game Retention at Play’n GO, the Dead series has achieved iconic status, and it was only fitting to continue its legacy with Pilgrim of Dead. The game, which is set in Ancient Egypt, is in line with the other titles in the Dead saga as well as the wider Play’n GO library, fusing classic mechanics that fans love with the setting of Ancient Egypt.
Olekszy stated that the Expanding Symbols feature returns in Pilgrim of Dead with a fresh twist, and he believes fans will be delighted. Additionally, he highlighted the visual appeal of the game, mentioning that it has a premium quality that is typical of Play’n GO’s standards.
