If there is one person that knows Ancient Egypt through and through, it’s definitely Rich Wilde. This famous casino game adventurer showed us the way of the book, thanks to his Book of Dead slot. After that, he went on many other adventures and along the way, he also involved his daughter Cat Wilde. Since then Cat Wilde has strongly followed her father's footsteps, bringing us many wonderful video slots. This lovely Indiana Jones inspired saga still continues with the release of Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead. Let’s see what’s new and old in this tempting Play’n GO slot.
The first time we got introduced to Cat Wilde was in 2020 with the release of Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead. This game was then followed by The Eclipse of the Sun God and The Lost Chapter. Now our brave new explorer has her fourth instalment. Out of her 4 solo adventures, only one is outside of Egypt, so Cat Wilde still has some catching up to do, if she ever wants to be equally compared to Rich. Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead is an awesome game though, as it brings players some classic book slot elements, while still providing some fresher ideas. Wilde family games rarely flop, so are we in for another banger?

Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
The beautiful thing about these Play’n GO Wilde slots is that almost all of them feel nostalgic, even though they’re brand new. We suppose, Play’n GO always manage to keep some bits of the original Book of Dead intact, so all these games feel familiar yet different. Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead goes for the classic 5 by 3 layout, which has been the staple for these “book” style slots. Pyramids of Dead brings in a pretty intense atmosphere. The sun may be shining, but there’s a feeling of unexplained uneasiness. Perhaps, the ancient gods are overlooking the reels. Animations and visual effects closely follow the classic Play’n GO “book” model.
Speaking of nostalgia, the low symbols definitely bring back some memories. Once more Play’n GO are using the classic royals which have been seen on many Wilde slots. The same goes for high symbols, although the look for these has been slightly tweaked, but they still feel quite familiar. We can see this both as a good and a bad thing. The visual style of these symbols is known now to almost every avid player, so they bring a sense of comfort, but some players might not appreciate the lack of innovation.
On Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead, players need to create wins according to 10 paylines. Much like its predecessors, Pyramids of Dead is a high volatility slot. The RTP also sees no extreme changes so we’re getting a cogent payout model, which will be favoured by a lot of players. The cherry on the top is the hefty 10,000x max win. This is one of the reasons why punters enjoy Wilde slots so much. They look well and they are capable of providing some stellar wins.
If you’re thinking Free Spins, then you’re thinking right, but that’s just one of the three bonus features that you can get on Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead. By scoring 3 or more Pyramids Wild Scatters, the players will be awarded one of the following bonus features:
Instant PrizeEach scatter turns into a golden chest, revealing value up to 500x.
Jackpot RoundPlayers are given 12 pots with 4 jackpots above them. One by one you then reveal these pots until you get 3 matching jackpot tokens. These jackpots are called Khufu, Tiye, Tutankhamun and Mereneith and they each award 20x, 100x, 250x and 1,000x respectively.
Free SpinsIt wouldn’t be a proper Wilde slot with no Free Spins bonus, so, fortunately, one of the options on Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead is the Free Spins feature. During your 8 Free Spins, we get the classic treatment – one symbol is selected to serve as the expanding symbol, so every time it lands, it completely covers the corresponding reel. If you manage to land at least 3 scatters again, then more Free Spins are granted and another expanding symbol is selected.
The thing with Cat Wilde slots is, that all of her games are strikingly similar, at least visually. The gameplay varies from game to game, but not massively. On the other hand, Rich Wilde tends to do some more exploration. Seems like Play’n GO are really keen to keep the classic bloodline running. It almost feels like they’re too afraid to experiment, fearing to upset long-lasting fans. That’s why Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead feels like another “book” slot. It’s a well-proven game model and we definitely enjoyed playing Pyramids of Dead, but it does get us thinking, how much is too much? When will Play’n GO go down a different road? Maybe we’ll have some answers soon enough.
