Grim Muerto

 Grim Muerto is a beautifully designed video slot released by Play’n GO in July 2016, featuring a unique theme that will appeal to most online casino gamers.

The action revolve around Dia de Muertos or Day of the Dead, a famous Mexican holiday that sees the families gathering to pray for their deceased relatives. You will enjoy seeing skeletons dressed as Mariachi, playing various instruments, as well as the Mexican folk music soundtrack that seriously improve the overall gaming experience.

We have seen few other video slots with a similar theme in the past, but Grim Muerto can give each of those a run for their money.

Developer

Play’n GO is a Swedish gaming operator that has been developing games for the online casino industry since 2005 and while they are still not a household name, their latest products have been pretty impressive.

Housing eye-catching graphics, decent payouts in the main games and quite a few fresh bonus features, their games rarely disappoint, as witnessed by Grim Muerto, the five reel, twenty payline slot that impresses on so many levels.

How to Play It

Grim Muerto is played at five reels and twenty fixed paylines, meaning that all you need to do before you start spinning the reels is select between 11 coin values, ranging from $0.01 to $1, and stake 1-5 coins per line or up to 100 in total.

Bet Max and Auto Play are supported, whereas you can click on Paytable or Game Help to learn more about payouts and extra features.

When it comes to high-value symbols, these award wins for two of a kind and upwards, whereas three matching low-value icons are required for an instant credit payout. Guitar is Wild and it also awards payouts for two or more, while also substituting for other game icons apart from Scatter.

Special Features

Marco Siniestro is a feature with a strange name that could come in handy. Namely, it is active on each spin and it randomly highlights one reel per spin. If a Wild icon appears on the highlighted reel, it expands to cover all three positions before wins are awarded.

Book Scatters only appear on reels I, III and V, and if you get three of these, 10 free games are activated. If you receive 1, 2 or 3 Candle icons during the feature, 3, 6 and 10 free spins are added to the count. One Skeleton Mariachi symbol becomes Extra Wild during free spins, substituting for all non-feature icons.

Last but not least, we have Second Chance, arguably one of the best features we have seen so far. The feature is activated each time two Scatters appear on the reels, revealing four Skeleton Mariachi icons. You get to select one of them. If you reveal a Scatter icon, the Free Spins round is triggered, another two symbols hide a cash prize, whereas no wins are paid if X is revealed.

Maximum Payout

Grim Muerto appears to be a low volatility slot game due to the fact that base line payouts are frequent yet not too impressive, but that is not to say that you cannot win big while playing it. The Second Chance extra feature makes all the difference as it ensures the main bonus round is activated on relatively frequent basis, while also awarding instant credit payouts.

Extra Wilds and additional free spins should come in handy as well, meaning your chances of turning a profit in the final count are not bad at all.

The maximum theoretical payout that can be secured while playing Grim Muerto is 5,000 credits per line or 100,000 coins per spin, awarded when five Wild icons are found on a payline on a five-coin bet per line.

Summary

Play’n GO can be proud of how their attempt to pay homage to one of Mexico’s most famous holidays has turned out, and we have no major objections to the 2016 release.

The storyline, visual appearance and sound effects are all quite impressive, main game wins are not too bad and while the game’s extra features do not seem too attractive, they actually add serious value to all your wagers. And with total bet ranging from $0.20 to $100, there is not much more we can ask for.
