Crypt of the Dead Slot Game Background

Ancient Egypt is a topic that continues to inspire and fascinate even today. It’s no wonder that slots centred around that theme slots are a popular staple of developers wanting to capitalise on the customs and traditions of Ancient Egypt, from the pantheon of gods to the temples buried by the burning desert sands to the Queen of the Nile herself, Cleopatra. Crypt of the Dead is one in a long line of slots from Blueprint Gaming to use the theme. The developer chose a relatively modern setting of an explorer looking around an ancient crypt, similar to the John Hunter series of slots like Book of the Fallen. And like that slot, Blueprint backs it up with a slew of bonus features, here centred around expanding symbols and free spins bonus round.

Crypt of the Dead Slot Game Design

Most online slot games that don’t use a proprietary game engine like Megaways or Power Reels boast a traditional 5x3 game grid and 10 - 20 paylines. Crypt of the Dead goes above and beyond that by offering a larger-than-average 6-reel, 4-row set-up, a massive 4,096 paylines, and a potential max payout of 50,000x the stake, which is then enhanced by features like expanding symbols, free spins, and more.

The slot's setting is an ancient Egyptian tomb 1000s of years after the original inhabitants first walked its halls. The game grid - encased in a golden frame decorated with lapis lazuli and scarab beetles - dominates the screen, but to the left and right-hand side are two towering columns filled with hieroglyphics alongside two massive cat statues. Above this is a vaulted roof. A mysterious green mist permeates the whole crypt. This eerie atmosphere is reinforced by ghostly whooshing noises as the reels spin and the banging of a large gong when hitting the minimum number of symbols for a winning payline. All the while, traditional Arabian music plays in the background, further reinforcing the fact that you're in Egypt.

Crypt of the Dead Slot Symbols

The game has 11 symbols, all fitting the Ancient Egyptian theme to a tee.

  • Royal 9 to A playing card symbols = these have a payout of between 0.6x and 1x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
  • Horus and Anubis symbols = these have a payout of 1.5x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
  • Pharaoh’s mask symbol = this has a payout of 3x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
  • Adventurer symbol = this has a payout of 10x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
  • Scatter symbol = represented by a tall, golden crypt. First, this symbol substitutes for all other paying symbols in the game. Second, it has a payout of 10x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels. Third, the symbol is the key to triggering the Free Spins feature.

Crypt of the Dead Slot Bonus Features

Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols triggers the slot's only bonus round, the Free Spins feature.

  • 3 Scatters = 10 Free Spins + special expanding symbol
  • 4 Scatters = 15 Free Spins + special expanding symbol
  • 5 Scatters = 25 Free Spins + special expanding symbol
  • 6 Scatters = 50 Free Spins + special expanding symbol

The special expanding symbol - one of the paying symbols - is randomly chosen at the start of the feature. Should these special symbols be able to form winning combinations in their reels (these have a particular golden background), they expand to cover all positions on said reels.

Finally, additional spins are awarded if another 3 Scatter symbols land in view during the Free Spins bonus round.

Crypt of the Dead Slot Summary

The Crypt of the Dead slot is a brilliant addition to Blueprint Gaming’s catalogue of Ancient Egyptian-themed slots. Straying away from the usual slots based around Horus, Anubis, or Cleopatra, the developer opts for an adventure that pays homage to the famous archaeologist (and in fact, the eponymous tomb looks a lot like the one from a particular scene…). This is backed up by the slot’s eerie, mysterious presentation and exciting bonus features. If you enjoy this type of thematics, then you could maybe check out the similarly themed Eye of Horus Megaways slot which is also a fan favourite within the Egyptian genre of slots. Alternatively, if your wanting someting a little more vibrant, you could maybe check out the cosmic-inspired viuals of the Starburst slot.
