“The Free Spins music in Book of Dead distinguishes itself during its time for its dramatic, high fidelity, epic orchestral style, encapsulating the essence of an adventurous explorer reminiscent of classic matinee movies, albeit infused with an Egyptian influence owing to the game's setting.”– Paul Zimmeraudio, Play’n GO Sound Technician

The Sound of (Slot) Music

“Given our initial anticipation of the game's potential success, it was imperative that the theme possessed a memorable hook capable of enduring the test of time. The resultant motif, known as "Rich Wilde's theme," proved to be a catchy earworm—a spirited burst of brass melody heralding the inevitable triumph of our hero, Rich Wilde. This motif became inseparably linked with the Dead series, and the essence of that melody continues to resonate throughout the series of games – even to this day.”
