Grim Muerto is an exciting five-reel, medium-variance, 20-Payline video slot from Play’n GO which takes the traditional Mexican Day of the Dead holiday in November as its theme and celebrates some of the more joyful aspects of this fiesta.
Despite the skeletons on the reels, and the skulls floating around, there’s a bold, cartoon-style design, a colourful vibe and upbeat music with this mobile-friendly game. Enjoy it across a range of Play’n GO casinos – you should find enough bonus features here to maintain interest.
How to play
There are some great graphics and sound effects in Grim Muerto, alongside little animations to celebrate each achievement. Play from tiny stakes of 20p up to a maximum bet of £100 – the most you can win is 250,000 coins.
Bear in mind that one thing this game doesn’t have is a progressive jackpot. However, there are potential wins of up to 2,500 times your wager on every spin.
Above all, it’s the attention to detail that makes this game so well thought out, from the way moustaches twirl on top of the golden reels to the small skulls which are illuminated during the free spins.
There are four main characters seen as symbols on the reels, all mariachi musicians, including Fernando the fiddler, Vincente on the vihuela, Amador on accordion and Tauro the trumpeter. Their forms may be skeletal, but their clothes are colourful!
The band members in orange, pink, green and blue, are the high-value icons, the lower-paying ones include the symbols 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace.
The Wild one
Ahead of every spin in the base game, a single reel is highlighted. The Wild symbol is the golden guitar. If you land this it duplicates and replaces every other symbol on that reel apart from the candles which are the scatter.
The guitar is the highest-value symbol, and you can get 50 times your initial wager if you land five of them on a single Payline.
It’s true that these don’t always guarantee big wins. But being able to enjoy unlimited free spins is arguably Grim Muerto’s main attraction. It’s triggered when the book scatter icon with a 3-D skull on its cover shows up on Reels 1, 3 and 5 – and your reward is no fewer than 10 free spins.
There is no limit on how many times these can be retriggered until you achieve the maximum win.
Second chance feature
With this, you can still trigger the free spins feature when only two book scatter symbols appear. You’re allowed to choose one of the four on-screen mariachi musician symbols (which appear as a grid) for the chance to play free spins or win some cash prizes.
Two symbols conceal coin wins of varying values. With one there is no win, the second is an extra scatter launching the full free spins feature.
Return to Player (RTP)
There’s not a huge amount to say about Grim Muerto’s Return to Player or RTP. It’s a fairly standard and perfectly fine 96%.
Fun and packed with some great features, it’s a DEAD cert that memorable, jovial Grim Muerto will offer enough thrills to keep you entertained and returning for more, despite the lack of a jackpot.
