If there is one theme for online slots games in Canada that has seen more than its share of time in the spotlight, it’s that of Ancient Egypt. For whatever reason, this epoch continues to amaze and inspire, with casino software developers consistently drawing inspiration from this period’s gods and goddesses, mysterious tombs, tales of hidden treasure and more. Play’n GO’s Legacy of Dead online slot game follows hot on the heels of another, similar, title of theirs, Book of Dead. While this title is newer, and has arguably crisper graphics and smoother gameplay, it doesn’t seem to bring anything particularly ground breaking to their catalogue. Let’s take a look.
Legacy of Dead uses a 3x5-reel grid structure and boasts 10 paylines. The smallest bet that you can place is a miniscule 0.01 credits, while the max is a decent 100. The reels appear to be set in an old catacomb or temple, with plenty of hieroglyphics on the wall, and two stone braziers burning bright. The game’s lower valued symbols are represented by the standard A, K, Q, J and 10 icons, while the higher values are comprised of a scarab beetle, what appears to be an undead pharaoh, Anubis and a golden image of another pharaoh. Again, these aren’t symbols that appear to be particularly original or new to the genre, but the Wild is represented by a golden tomb, and it has the power to take the place of other symbols on the reels to help you score winning combinations. The Wild doubles up as a Scatter, awarding you with a Free Spins round when you land at least 3 of it across the reels. Another cool feature of this online slot that residents of Canada enjoy is the occurrence of Expanding Symbols, in which a random symbol is selected to expand across the entire reel, thereby increasing your chances of even more paying symbol combos. It should be noted that these Expanding Symbols can be retriggered, but they only occur during Free Spins rounds.
Given the lack of any particularly interesting or otherwise engaging in-game bonus rounds, feel free to make use of the Autoplay feature, which lets the reels spin themselves while you kick back and tend to other matters.
While Play’n GO is the name behind plenty of incredible online slots games in Canada, Legacy of Dead seems to fall somewhat flat, at least in our opinion. In an industry where games with an Egyptian theme are a dime a dozen, one would really expect at least a little something more on this title. This is, regrettably, not the case with this game. Still, if some relaxing ambience and straightforward gameplay are your flavour, it must just be up your alley. The best thing to do would simply be to play and find out. The game can be enjoyed at plenty of Canadian online casinos that support Play’n GO software, and given how popular this provider is, you’ll find that most of them do.
