When the Play’n GO slot Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead appeared in January 2016, hardly anyone would have expected this incredible success. Today, this slot is one of the most popular and best-known slot games in online casinos. However, what real fans know of course, Book of Dead was already the third adventure of Rich Wilde and several more were to follow later, which even took him to the legendary Atlantis.
However, he seems to have somehow disappeared there, because since then only his daughter Cat Wilde can be seen on the reels. In the Play’n GO slot Cat Wilde in the Eclipse of the Sun God, part 7 of the complete Book of Dead series, she now has her second solo adventure in a row and follows in her father’s footsteps.
Play’n Go sends Cat Wild to South America in the Eclipse of the Sun God
Over the years, the story of the adventurer Rich Wild has developed into a real family saga, because since last year his daughter has also been hunting for ancient secrets and treasures. The slot machine provider Play’n GO seems to see a lot of potential in its new female main character, which is why she is now getting her own slot game for the second time. In Cat Wilde in the Eclipse of the Sun God, Play’n GO sends her to South America this time to uncover the mystery of a solar eclipse that is connected to the sun god of the Aztecs. At the same time, she follows in the footsteps of her father, who had his first adventure in South America in 2012 and laid the foundation for today’s Book of Dead series with Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols.
For fans of the series, this is an interesting journey back to the roots. As in the predecessor Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead, which was released last year, the daughter is also convincing as the main character in this Play’n Go slot and is now fully established as the second important pillar in the franchise. A female main character definitely appeals to new customer groups that previously might have given the Book of Dead series a wide berth.
Cat Wilde in the Eclipse of the Sun God is already the seventh part of the Book of Dead series and at the same time the second spin-off in which Rich Wilde’s daughter plays the sole leading role. Both slots with the new female main character appeared one after the other last time, which unfortunately came at the expense of Rich Wilde. He made his last appearance in May 2020 in Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena. It is to be hoped that Play’n Go will not forget Rich Wilde, the real draw card, over the success of Cat Wilde and that the adventures of the protagonist from Book of Dead will also be continued soon.
The new slot machine can convince with a gigantic multiplier
The new Play’n GO slot Cat Wilde in the Eclipse of the Sun God is a classic slot game with falling symbols. As usual, hit squares disappear and are replaced by new blocks and each additional hit increases the next potential win with an increasing multiplier. In the base game, there are five multipliers that build up from 1 to 2, 4 and 6 to 10, making series of hits on the total of 20 paylines very lucrative.
However, it is only in the free spins mode that Cat Wilde in the Eclipse of the Sun God really gets going, as Play’n GO adds a maximum multiplier of 70. The free spins mode is triggered in the classic way by hitting three scatters and then the big hunt for the loot begins in 10 free spins. What is particularly successful here is that free spins can also be won again in this mode via the scatters.
Each time a scatter appears in a freespin, it is collected and if a total of 5 scatters are scored, 5 more free spins are awarded. A total of 40 can be won, which brings the total number of maximum possible freespins in a session to 50. Together with the maximum multiplier of 70, this is a great combination that can truly fill the pockets of every treasure hunter to bursting point. In addition to the scatter, there is of course a wild, which in this Play’n GO slot game is not represented by Cat Wilde, but by an Aztec death mask. However, the leading lady is the most valuable of the normal symbols.
