Another Adventure for Rich Wilde and Play’n GO
Rich Wilde is one of the most famous names in video slots right now thanks to his staring role in the Book of Dead slot, where he guides players through tombs in a hunt for treasure, as well as its sequels. Book of Dead proved to be a huge hit with players and the developers, Play’n GO, will be hoping that the sequel, which also features Rich Wilde, will be just as popular.
Rich Wilde and The Tome of Madness is a high-volatility slot that is packed with just as many features and action as the first game in the series. This time Play’n GO have swapped the ancient Egyptian aesthetic for an entirely fictional world based on the Cthulhu Mythos as imagined by the gothic horror author H.P. Lovecraft.
What to Expect
Rich Wilde is perhaps best known for his role in Book of Dead, but he has also featured in the Pearls of India and Aztec Idols slots, taking him to different worlds in completely different time periods. The Tome of Madness could be the biggest and best one yet, featuring a classic gothic setting that oozes Lovecraftian style.
There are 9 paylines spread across a 5x5 grid on Rich Wilde and The Tome of Madness. The goal is to match symbols in clusters of 4, generating a win each time. The Tome of Madness also features some big multipliers and wilds, including a Special Wild, which takes the form of the titular Tome of Madness. Lovecraft fans will recognize this so-called tome as the “Necronomicon”, which featured prominently in the Lovecraft universe and the Cthulhu mythos.
The launch of The Tome of Madness comes shortly after Play’n GO were named as the Mobile Supplier of the Year at the EGR B2B Awards. This awards showcase was held at the Tower of London on June 25 and marked the fourth time in five years that they have been recognized for their efforts.
The innovative developer has taken many big strides forward in the last year or two and have a solid foundation on which to build—one of big awards, countless fans, and great respect within the industry.
Fans of Rich Wilde will be delighted with the launch of The Tome of Madness, but they will also be happy to know that Play’n GO have several other new titles out there. Just a couple of weeks ago they announced the launch of Rise of Merlin, which is set in a magical universe, and several weeks before that they debuted Game of Gladiators.
