Grab your guitar and biggest sombrero as we celebrate the latest of the Megaways slots with up to 117,649 ways to win at Microgaming casinos from All41Studios.
The Dia Del Mariachi Megaways slot has changing rows of symbols, giving you changing ways to win. Every win explodes, allowing more to tumble down, making this a familiar beast for fans of the genre.
You either love Megaways games or you don’t. And if you do, you’ll realise pretty quickly that this Dia Del Mariachi mobile slot is volatile, especially as it has a max win of 10,000x your stake but a low RTP of 94.23%.
The reason for this is that you can win the top win in a single spin simply by landing the wheel of fortune symbol in the sombrero feature. But you could also win instant cash, wild reels, or random wilds, all in the base game and the free spins.
Plenty to unpack as we delve deeper into this Dia Del Mariachi slot review.
Instead, it tries to draw you in with the Sombreros sitting on top of the horizontal reel above. When these light up, be prepared to land special symbols that turn this sleepy town into a fiesta.
The Piñata gives you instant wins of up to 10x your bet, the rockets turn 3 random symbols wild, and the firecrackers turn the whole reel wild… those are just some of the features that, together, can create a powerful combination of wins.
Better yet, trigger 10 free spins with 4 scatters, and the Sombrero will always be lit, with a bonanza of features open to trigger on any spins.
The problem is that in order to get that top win, you have to hit the wheel of Fortune whilst the Sombreros are lit up. When you do, the wheel of fortune will guarantee that you’ll win anything from 15x to 10,000x your bet, all in a single spin.
Which, when you think about it, makes the rest of the Dia Del Mariachi slot game feel like you are just wasting time till you can hit that wheel. We didn’t see wins much above 50x our bet, though more is clearly possible.
All in all, we probably would still prefer to play on the original Bonanza slot, or maybe a Megaways with a new twist like the Great Pigsby Megapays game. At least you know every spin counts and the RTP is higher.
Still, Dia Del Mariachi is a decent enough video slot, with a big top win. There are the worst real money slot games to play. Not the most glowing game review, but if you are going to play it safe and walk down the middle of the line, you are going to get a middling kind of review.
If you do find it at an online casino, however, it’s not without many fun features.

Megaways: This slot has 6 reels, and one horizontal reel on the top 4 middle reels. The rows of symbols in the 6 reels will change spin to spin, giving you anything from 2 to 7 symbols high. This can create up to 117,649 ways to win.
Wilds: The wild symbols can substitute for all other symbols except scatter and special symbols (Pinata, Firecracker, Rocket, and Wheel symbols). The wild can only land on the top horizontal reel.
Rolling Reels: On each win, the winning symbols will explode and more will come tumbling down from above. This continues until no more winning symbols are found on the reels.
Sombrero Spin Feature: This can trigger in the base game and free spins. During this feature, the sombreros will light up above the horizontal reel, If you land a special symbol, you'll trigger a special feature.
The Instant Win Jackpot: There's four in-game jackpots on the side of the reels. How do you trigger them? You catch the Wheel of Fortune during the sombrero spins.
If you do, you'll get to spin a wheel of fortune to win:
Scatters and Free Spins: 4 scatters will trigger 10 free spins. Every additional scatter adds +2 spins to the total. You can retrigger the bonus in the same way as you play the free spins.
During the free spin bonus, the Sombrero feature is always active on the horizontal reels, filled with special symbols and triggers.
Buy Bonus: For 80x your bet, you can buy entry into the free spin bonus instantly.
Well, the fact that the main game doesn't have the big multipliers kinda kills a lot of the joy, as the only way to win 10,000x your bet is by hitting the wheel of fortune.
Otherwise, you are just passing the time, watching winning symbols explode and the sombreros light up. Easy on the eye, but low on thrills.
Still, we can't deny that this Dia Del Mariachi slot on mobile doesn't feel as volatile as its nature suggests, giving you enough features to make you think you are keeping ahead of the game - a rarity in this genre.
Fun enough if you come across it at your favourite slots sites.
