Play’n GO is in 2021 one of the largest online casino game makers in the world. Is Scroll of Dead worth it? Keep reading to find out. This success story of Play’n GO is the result of years of hard work, releasing a lot of good slots and listening carefully to your target group.
When Play’n GO released Book of Dead, a clone of Book of Ra, it was the start of an unprecedented rise. That was in 2016, and since then Book of Dead has been the most played online slot in the world.
Partly inspired by that unique success, Play’n GO has since released many “Book of” slots, such as Legacy of Dead, Rich Wilde and the Amulet of Dead, Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead and of course Rise of Merlin.
And if you think that the cookie has to be finished by now, then you are wrong. Scroll of Dead is also a Book of Ra type slot, with a few extra twists. For example, in Scroll of Dead, during the bonus game you do not play with 5, but with 6 reels and you can also win 7,500x the bet, which is 1.5x as much as, for example, Book of Dead.
Scroll of Dead clearly does not tread an untrodden path in terms of theme and design. An Egyptian mythological theme, the well-known languid Egyptian sounds (what kind of stringed instrument would that be?) and symbols that look very familiar. This is clearly a slot that aims to give the many fans a recognizable alternative to all those other slots from the genre.
In the basic game of Scroll of Dead, you play on a playing field that consists of 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols. There are 10 variable paylines, where you determine the coin value, the number of lines and the bet yourself. This gives you a betting range that is between 0.01 euros and 100 euros per spin.
The variance of Scroll of Dead is high and the theoretical payout percentage is 96.28% as standard. Be careful though: Play’n GO slots can also come in variants with a much lower RTP and that can easily save up to 8%.

In terms of symbols, it is striking that winning combinations can be up to 6 symbols in size, a direct result of the extra reel that is placed during the free spins. A 6-of-a-kind on an active Cleopatra payline will net you 7,500 coins, which with 10 paylines is active equates to 750x the total bet. The scarab is the well-known wild scatter in Scroll of Dead, which not only replaces all other symbols, but also functions as a bonus scatter.
Three or more scarab wild scatters will give you the free spins bonus:
- You get 8 free spins, which can retrigger unlimited
- A special expanding bonus symbol is selected
- You get an extra, sixth reel during the free spins
- You can retrigger unlimited by spinning 3 or more scatters again.
The maximum win per spin is 375,000 coins, for a full screen of Cleopatra's with all paylines active and the maximum amount of 5 coins wagered. If you win more than that, the rest will be forfeited.
Although we are a bit done with this type of slots, we cannot deny that Scroll of Dead is very well put together. The addition of an extra roll provides a clear extra dimension and the increased maximum win is also a good plus.
