It’s the Day of the Dead! And a very unusual Mariachi band invite you to to a wild fiesta in this Grim Muerto slot by Play’n GO.
It’s the little attention to detail that we love here. From the lively music, to the way the moustache spins on the top of the golden reels, or even the little skull lanterns that light up during the night-time free spins.
Though you’d never know, each of the handsome skeletal characters have their own name: Amador the accordionist, Tauro the trumpeter, Fernando the fiddler and Vincente on the vihuela.
Needless to say, this Grim Muerto slot theme is beautifully thought out.
Fans of Thunderkick Esqueleto Explosivo slot need not worry – whilst the theme is similar, Play’n GO don’t do copies.
This is 100% original and relies on one feature to provide big wins; namely one reel is chosen before each spin, and if the wild symbol lands there, the wild expands to cover the whole reel.
Doesn’t that sound exciting?
That’s because the real excitement comes in the Grim Muerto slot free spins, where anything from 2 to 5 reels turn golden with opportunity.
If there’s one thing Play’n GO slots do well is keep the action lively – even on mobile slots where you’d think getting bonus features should be difficult because of the wins.
Look at Royal Masquerade slot, which has 1 million cash top prize for example.
It’s no different here, though the wins aren’t quite as impressive, as you get one of our band members turn into a second wild symbol.
Suddenly you can get up to 5 reels totally wild.
The fact that you can trigger an extra 3 to 6 free spins by getting just one or two scatters has seen us play well over 20 free spins at a time.
The free spins don’t guarantee big wins, especially as these night time festivities have a tendency to come often or rarely at all.
But there’s always that moment of hope. Especially as two scatters on screen give you a ‘Second Chance’ bonus to catch a third scatter and you get a little closer to the fiesta to end all fiestas.

Wild Reel & Symbol: The guitar is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the reels.
One random reel is also chosen before each spin and highlighted in gold. If the wild symbols lands on this reel, it expands to cover the whole reel.
Scatter and Free Spins: Get the book scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you start 10 free spins.
If you find one or two candle symbols on any of the five reels during the slot's free spins, you'll trigger either 3 or 6 free spins.
During those free spins, one of the four main characters, and highest paying symbols now acts as a secondary wild.
More importantly, instead of getting one golden reel, you now get anything from 2 to 5 golden reels.
And with 2 wilds, that's twice the chance of getting a whole stack of wilds.
The Second Chance Feature: If you land two scatter symbols, you then get a chance to choose between the four band members.
Hiding underneath are two cash prizes, an extra scatter (and therefore triggering the free spins) or nothing at all.
It's hard not to love a festive game like this Grim Muerto mobile slot - just the theme and music puts a smile on your face on the gloomiest of days.
This is a pretty well balanced mobile slot machine that keeps things lively with a second chance feature and golden reels of stacked wilds.
Worthy to be added to be Play'n GO slots portfolio and worth trying out by even the most cynical of gamblers.
