The latest Play ‘N Go product will take us on a trip to Mexico to experience the Dia de Muertos, a festivity dedicated to the deceased.
During this festivity, natives build a kind of altars where they offer favourite food and drinks of their departed members of family and friends, as well as sugar skulls and flowers.
An undead mariachi band will accompany you while you spin the reels placed on such an altar and, even though the theme seems a bit morbid, you will definitely enjoy your playtime, due to some interesting special features and a joyful soundtrack performed by the mariachi band.
Grim Muerto is the newest release from Play ‘N Go, a company devoted to creating top-notch online gambling products. Play ‘N Go was founded back in 1997 in Vaxjo, Sweden, but it took them seven years to start working independently.
Up until now, the company released more than 50 online gambling products that are available in more than 30 different languages, covering almost every corner of the world. Apart from the headquarters in Sweden, Play ‘N Go has operational offices in Hungary, Malta and Philippines.
How To Play It
High-paying symbols are represented by four different undead mariachi: the Red Mariachi plays a guitar, the Blue Mariachi carries a trumpet, the Green Mariachi is the one with a violin, and last, but not the least is the Violet Mariachi playing an accordion.
The rest of the symbols are presented by playing cards icons. There is also a Guitarron Wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols except the Book Scatter, and the Candle Scatter.
Rules of the 2016 release are very simple and a mere beginner will play this slot like a pro after a very short period of time. This five-reel slot offers 20 fixed paylines, but you can alter the coin value, going from $0.01 to $1, as well as the number of coins per payline, going from 1 to 5.
The minimum bet you can wager is $20, while the maximum is $100. Unlike in most other slots where you need a three-of-a-kind combination to start winning money, in Grim Muerto you need only two matching symbols on an active payline, starting from the leftmost reel.
Marco Siniestro is the first special feature we will mention. Basically, gamers will get a randomly highlighted reel in every spin. If you manage to land a Wild symbol on the highlighted reel, it will become an expanding Wild and will cover the entire reel, making it easier for you to form a winning combination.
Book Scatters will appear only on reels 1, 3 and 5 and once you land three of them you will be awarded with 10 freebies and trigger the Free Spin mode.
During free spins, Marco Siniestro feature will highlight two or more reels, creating a great number of opportunities for landing winning combinations. Also, one of the mariachi will become an extra Wild during this feature, and this extra Wild can also become an expanding Wild if it lands on the highlighted reel.
During freebies Candle Scatter will appear and three of them will retrigger the Free Spin feature, awarding gamers with 10 additional free spins. Two Candle Scatters will win you 3 or 6 free spins.
The Second Chance feature can occur during base game. If you land just two Book Scatters, you will be given a chance to play a card game in which you pick one of the four mariachi.
If you choose wisely, you will be awarded with an additional Book Scatter and trigger the Free Spin feature, or you can win a cash prize, or, if you pick the wrong mariachi, you will get nothing.
The Guitarron Wild symbol id the highest paying symbol in this Play ‘N Go title, offering 1,000 coins for the maximum combination. The Red Mariachi with a guitar will get you 700 coins for five of a kind. It is said that the maximum payout you can land goes up to 2,500 times the initial bet.
We presume that this payout can be won during free spins, thanks to the improved Marco Siniestro feature, extra Wilds and expanding Wilds.
Since Dia de Muertos is celebrated in the beginning of November, you will have more than enough time to learn something about this Mexican festivity and earn some lucrative payouts along the way. Grim Muerto slot offers lots of action thanks to some interesting features incorporated in the 2016 release.
Given the fact that two matching symbols on an active payline are enough for a winning combination, landing payouts have been made quite easy, but bear in mind that they will not be as high as the initial bet. If you look for some serious money, you can expect it during free Spin feature.
