Players in New Zealand and the restless spirits of long-dead pharaohs will be rubbing their hands with glee at the news of the launch of Play’n GO’s Ghost of Dead. The 5-reel and 10-payline online pokie comes only a few weeks after the Sweden-based provider unveiled its Hugo Carts game.
The provider’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano said the title is Play’n GO’s most recent release to feature an ancient Egyptian theme. The theme is a popular choice for the provider, which has used it in the other titles in the Dead series as well as in games such as last November’s Golden Osiris.
Miliziano explained that the theme was a good foundation for an exciting narrative involving cold-hearted kings and gods. She added that the storyline of the online pokie was underpinned by the provider’s consistent quality and innovative bonus elements and mechanics.
Miliziano also said that Ghost of Dead players will recognise the style and playing action they came to know and love by playing the other games in the series at the best online casinos NZ makes available.
About The Game
Like the other titles in the series, Ghost of Dead combines action, adventure, history, and more than a touch of the supernatural. The main character in the game is the ‘akh’ of the pharaoh Unas.
According to the provider, the ‘akh’ was something like a living spirit or ghost comprised of soul and vitality. The ancient Egyptians believed a person’s ‘akh’ could appear in any form and that it can travel anywhere in the world.
In the online pokie, the spirit of Unas acts as a guide who leads players to treasures such as a maximum payout of as much as 10,000x the triggering bet. In addition to symbols such as a mummy, scarabs, and snakes, the game features Expanding Wilds and Free Spins with special expanding symbols.
The Dead Series
Play’n GO’s Dead series of games has been a hit with players at the best online casinos NZ offers since it began with the launch of Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead in 2016. Since then, the series has grown to include Legacy of Dead, Rise of Dead, Doom of Dead, and Scroll of Dead Advances, as well as the appearance of a new character, Rich’s daughter, Cat.
All the online pokies in the series are characterised by vibrant, immersive graphics and animations, potentially lucrative special features, gripping themes, and excellent playability on all platforms.
