Play’n GO has done an amazing job when it comes to the appearance of the game, as it offers a realistic and incredibly immersive atmosphere full of Egyptian symbolism. Not only that, but the excellent graphics only enhance the entire experience and provide a more enjoyable experience overall.
The 6×3 grid looks almost ancient, with the background covered in hieroglyphs, perfectly fitting the theme of the game. These are all set against a backdrop that represents a hallway of some kind of an ancient temple or tomb. There are thick columns that lead to the treasure, we presume, while the floor is covered in gold coins.
The symbols do not stray from the theme. The Secret of Dead slot features masterfully designed symbols that fit the theme, making it even more authentic. As per usual, the Royals are the low-paying ones. When it comes to the higher-paying symbols we have a golden cobra, a scarab, a cat, and at the top, we have Shai, the Egyptian goddess bringing rewards worth 10x the stake for a fully covered payline.
As it often is with the Book of Dead games, here we also have one special symbol that serves as both the wild and the scatter. In the previous titles, it was a book, however, in Secret of Dead, this symbol is presented by a golden ankh.
