Legacy of Dead is set in Ancient Egyptian times. The reels of the online slot sit in a beautiful burial chamber from which the king has escaped. Importantly, this slot follows on from the impressive Book of Dead, also from Play'n GO. So, it's that king's power being used to find the treasure. On the reels are a number of these different treasures and gods, each one rendered beautifully. The high-paying symbols include Horus, Tutankhamen, the King now appearing as a Mummy, and Anubis. However, it's the Mummy King that pays out the most at up to 500x the initial bet when 5 of them land on the reels. The low-paying symbols are stunningly designed Ace to 10 playing card symbols. Additionally, there are a number of other bonus symbols to look out for.
On these slightly sinister reels with the eerie, yet appropriate, soundtrack to match the action, there is an important bonus symbol to keep an eye out for. This is the gold Altar symbol. Unlike most other online slot games, this symbol actually has a dual role. First, it is the wild. In this role, the Altar wild can help to create winning combinations as it can replace all other symbols on the reels. Like the Mummy King, this is the highest paying out symbol and will also award a win of 500x the initial bet when five of them land on a payline. However, this symbol also doubles up as the scatter. This means that it is also responsible for triggering the one extra feature that this Legacy of Dead online slot game offers.
The Bonus Spins feature is the only bonus available in the Legacy of Dead slot. In order to get this feature running, three or more of the golden Altar symbol need to land on the reels. Landing the top number of five of these will award ten bonus spins. In addition to this, the Expanding Symbols feature will kick in. When the bonus spins are activated, one symbol at random is chosen to become an expanding icon. This symbol will then take over the entire reel it lands on during a spin. This increases the chances of a win occurring during the bonus spins. The number of expanding symbols can vary on any one spin and can even go to as many as five, thus filling the reels entirely and therefore resulting in a potentially huge win.
Within the Bonus Spins feature, if three Altar wild or scatter symbols land on the reels, the bonus spins feature is retriggered. This means that ten more bonus spins are awarded. On top of that, a new symbol will become an expanding wild meaning that there will be two expanding symbols on the reels. In fact, the Bonus Spins feature can be constantly retriggered. This can result in all 9 symbols becoming expanding at any one time. With unlimited bonus spins available if the scatters keep landing, this can end up being quite an interesting period within the game. During this feature, the Mummy King remains the highest paying out symbol and can actually award 5000x the initial bet when in its expanded form on the reels. Card icons are still the lowest, paying out just 80x.
Legacy of Dead slot may only have one additional bonus feature but this does work very well. The fun Egyptian theme is an interesting one, especially as it carries on from the end of the hugely popular Book of Dead online slot. Within the slot game itself, the graphics and soundtrack are beautiful, helping to create the Egyptian world the game is set in. Additionally, the Bonus Spins feature doesn't just offer spins. It also hides some expanding symbols and big wins and it can be endlessly retriggered too. This means that there's the possibility of a win of as much as 5000x the initial bet to be scored here. This online slot has an above-average RTP, but with the high volatility comes some dry spells.
