Our expert rating
Set in ancient Egypt, Legacy of Dead is another exciting game released by the developers at Play’n GO. The slot was released in 2019. Set in an Egyptian burial chamber, the graphics are, as expected, slick and visually pleasing. The Egyptian soundtrack playing in the background adds to the tension, and we see some familiar characters riding the reels.
The highest-paying symbol is Tutankhamun, followed by Anubis, Pharaoh, Horus, card royals and 10. As an added extra, the golden burial chamber wild is also high-paying, on par with Tutankhamun, with both awarding 500x bet for landing five. The wild doubles up as a scatter, which we explore further in the Legacy of Dead slot bonuses and features section.
The layout is a standard five reels by three rows on this highly-rated free videoslot, and there are up to 10 adjustable paylines. Winning is straightforward: players need to match two or more symbols (three or more for card royals and 10s) on adjacent reels across the paylines, which pay from left to right, starting with the leftmost reel.

The golden burial chamber also takes on the role of substituting wild and stands in for all symbols. The betting options on the Legacy of Dead slot provide for adjusting the paylines, coin values and coins per line, resulting in a bet range of 0.01 to 100.
The Legacy of Dead RTP is 96.58%, which is coupled with high volatility. The RTP and slot volatility are both theoretical indicators predicting the potential payout to a player over an extended period of time, pot sizes and the frequency of payouts.
Theoretically, slots with low volatility pay out small pots often, while those with a high volatility do the opposite. Players on the Legacy of Dead slot therefore will need to show some patience in between those bigger wins.
Landing three or more scatters on the Legacy of Dead slot reels will activate the Free Spins bonus round. Players are awarded an initial 10 free spins, and before the feature begins, a random symbol (not the wild/scatter) is chosen to perform expanding duties.
Whenever enough of these specially chosen symbols land on the reels, they will expand to create more winning opportunities. During the Free Spins bonus round, players are able to re-trigger the feature and activate up to nine special expanding symbols, possibly leading to the potential max win of 5,000x the stake.
The Legacy of Dead slot has great visuals, with the ancient Egyptian theme working its magic as it so often does on popular slots. There are some super bonus features, including the high-paying wilds, free spins and expanding symbols. The volatility makes for exciting play alongside the decent Legacy of Dead RTP.
