Casino Wars was back in full swing this August, with two fresh slot games going head-to-head. The latest contenders were Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead and John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen. Both with an Ancient Egypt theme, both with extremely chiseled main characters, and both based around epic ancient adventures. But which is the fave? Come and make up your own mind as they battle it out in Casino Wars: Book of Dead vs. John Hunter.
