Game Review: Oasis of Dead

The deserts of Egypt are harsh, and the scorching sun is unforgiving. If only there was some respite in these barren dunes... seek the cooling waters of the hidden Oasis, and you might get more than you bargained for in Oasis of Dead the latest release of Play’n GO’s popular series that brought fans the iconic Book of Dead.

The Dead series continues to be one of iGaming’s most popular series, bringing players to the forefront of archaeological – and supernatural – discoveries. As players brave the desert wastes, they’ll stumble upon a refreshing ancient oasis. While this discovery serves as respite from the elements, it’s not entirely free from danger. 

But of course, where there’s danger, there’s often opportunity. In Oasis of Dead, players will discover that this ancient place is not deserted, and it is in fact the resting place of an evil being from long ago. Fans of the Dead series titles such as Banquet of Dead, Pilgrim of Dead, and other games involving the famed Wilde family like Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead, will instantly recognise this new addition to the series as an instant classic. Take a look below to discover more about this foray into the tomb of an evil demon king... 


How to play Oasis of Dead 

After jumping into the game, you’ll will be greeted by a 5x3 reel layout filled with symbols of varying ancient Egypt-themed designs. Here, you can set your bet amount and then hit spin. The aim in the base game is to create winning combinations of symbols across the game’s 20 paylines. But, as a budding treasure hunter, stumbling upon an untouched tomb like that in the long-forgotten Oasis of Dead, isn’t an opportunity to pass up lightly. If the treasures above the waters are this good, imagine what sorts of riches await further into the demon king’s tomb... Take a look at the bonus features that can be found deeper within. 

The Features of Oasis of Dead

One of the most sought-after features hidden in this dusty tomb is the Free Spins round. This can first be triggered by landing three or more Scatter symbols on the reels in the base game. Once triggered, you’ll become the proud owner of 8 Free Spins for the duration of the round. This can be retriggered, netting you 8 more by landing three or more Scatters again. There’s no end to the number of spins that can be earned but once the last spin is used, the round ends.  

At the start of the Free Spins round, a special Expanding Symbol will be chosen at random. Should you retrigger the Free Spins round, an extra symbol will be added to this list, and these special Expanding Symbols will expand on the reels whenever a winning combination can be achieved by doing so. They will also activate in order with the lowest paying symbol expanding first.  

During the base game, you’ll also be able to test your mettle against the Gamble round. Any standard win will give you the option to collect or gamble the amount you’ve won. This is done by successfully guessing the colour or suit of a random card. Guessing the colour correctly will award a 2x multiplier, whereas guessing the suit of the card will award a 4x multiplier. But remember, the bet that you gamble will be lost should you guess incorrectly so do so at your own risk!   

Visuals of Oasis of Dead 

For fans of other Ancient Egypt slots and the treasure hunting family of the Wilde series, the visuals of Oasis of Dead are sure to scratch that same itch, while also offering a fresh new take on the style. The reel icons are designed to represent the iconic style of Ancient Egyptian treasures, with the lower paying symbols being bound in gold and bright colours, while the higher paying symbols depict stunning artefacts like a serpentine staff head, a scarab pendant, as well as the fearsome demonic king himself. The scene behind the reels also draws players in with the oasis’ clear waters, lush surrounds, and domineering pyramid backdrop.

Veredicto final 

Ultimately, Oasis of Dead is a phenomenal slot game in its own right. It boasts gameplay mechanics that fans love with a twist on popular features, while also offering a fresh look in a much-loved theme. We’re certain that this new addition to the Dead series will wow players across the globe, whether they’re already fans of the Egyptian setting or are just searching for something new to try.
