First Slot Release of 2020 Comes from Play’N Go – Legacy of Dead
For Play’N Go, 2019 was a huge year with release after release hitting the online casino scene and awards flying in from every corner of the globe, but 2020 is here and the top-tier software provider has a vision to outdo 2019 and this starts with Legacy of Dead; the new slot based on ancient Egyptian mythology.
CEO Johan Törnqvist said: “2019 was a record-breaking year for us, and we plan to reach even higher for 2020. Legacy of Dead is the very first in a series of quality gaming releases that will further cement our status as one of the foremost suppliers in the industry, and we will bring slot entertainment to a whole new level this year.”
It was no surprise to learn of yet another ancient Egyptian themed slot to come rolling off their production belt, what with popular titles Rise of Dead, Ankh of Anubis, Doom of Egypt and Book of Dead all taking the iGaming scene by storm, but one thing that did surprise us was the lack of imagination. Sorry, it had to be said. Fair play Play’N Go certainly know how to develop immersive slots but throwing out new slots with just a little tweak here or there is hardly impressive.
Legacy of Dead is just a new version of the much-loved Book of Dead, but instead of golden book scatters, you have golden temples. The visuals are much more appealing granted, but still too similar to the original. One of the symbols on the reels has been upgraded to the ancient king – the prominent figure upon the reels of the Doom of Egypt and Rise of Egypt slots.
When you put Book of Dead and this latest Legacy of Dead side to side, there’s not much difference to be honest. Both deliver maximum wins of 250,000 coins; both require at least three scatter symbols to land 10 free spins and each bonus feature will select a special symbol to become the ‘expanding symbol’.
One major change is the leading character; Rich Wild was the highest paying in Book of Dead, but the golden temples are the highest paying in this latest creation, awarding up to 5000x your stake for a complete win line and with that bonus element, you could land them on all 10!
The only thing that’s different is the plot; “The book is open, and the King’s spirit has escaped!”
Legacy of Dead is the first release of 52 planned slots this year and features a 5-reel, 10 fixed win line engine. Whether you play high roller stakes for life-changing money or like to spin the reels with a set budget now and again, there’s a chance of walking away with some huge cash prizes.
