Grim Muerto is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot powered by Play ‘N Go. Based on the delightful Día de Muertos celebrations, it can be played across desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 20p to £100 per spin. With plenty of colour and excitement, it has an obvious Mexican theme.
The game is based on the Day of the Dead which is a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico where family and friends pray for and remember the friends and family members who have passed away. Featuring hauntingly handsome members of a Mexican Mariachi band, they include Amador the accordionist, Tauro the trumpeter, Fernando the fiddler and Vincente on the vihuela.
Other symbols on the reels include the book scatter symbol, the candles scatter symbol and the guitar wild – the latter can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter and is the highest value one rewarding you with 50 times your stake when you get 5 on a payline.
In the base game, 1 reel is highlighted before each spin – if the guitar wild symbol lands on that chosen reel, it duplicates to replace other symbols on that reel.
The main attraction is the Free Spins feature which is triggered when the book scatter symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 – this will reward you with 10 free spins. The good news is that free spins can be retriggered on an unlimited basis until the maximum win (covered below) is won.
If you get 1 or 2 candle symbols on the reels in the feature, you will get 3 or 6 additional free spins respectively. There’s more – the book reveals a high value Mariachi symbol before the feature starts which acts as an additional wild throughout the feature! Furthermore, between 2 and 5 reels are highlighted on every free spin – if a wild or extra wild lands on these selected reels, it duplicates to replace all other symbols on those reels.
There is also a Second Chance feature where you can still trigger the Free Spins feature when only 2 book scatter symbols appear – you get to pick 1 of the 4 symbols on the screen for your chance to enter the Free Spins feature or win cash prizes.
Grim Muerto is a medium variance slot game with wins of up to 2,500 times your stake possible on every single spin – the bigger wins will come in the Free Spins feature due to the extra wild and up to 5 reels highlighted where wilds can be duplicated. Highly entertaining, this is a great game from Play ‘N Go. I also recommend you try some of Play ‘N Go’s other slots with Book of Dead highly recommended.
