Muerto en Mictlán Slot Review
Dead in Mictlán. Dead in the Underworld of Mictlán. A charming start. In Muerto en Mictlán by Play'n Go, we participate in the Day of the Dead. As history goes, the Aztec mythology was the underworld Mictlán where most people went to when they died, and a place where many Aztecs dedicated themselves to in their “living wills”. So we are travelling across the afterlife worlds, from the Moon kingdom to the Sun kingdom.
Death emits a profound darkness. The family and friends of the departed, the origin of the deceased, the circumstances of death, the way forward. However, the Aztecs have chosen to represent the departed colourfully and cheerfully, thereby honouring the dead. As a tribute to the colours of life, yellow represents unity and the sun, while red symbolizes blood and life. So sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
Scatters activate free spins in Muerto en Mictlán, and players may collect them to progress through four levels. Scatter symbols appear on top of conventional pay symbols, so their payouts are not affected. Each reel may only have one scatter. To get the first 5 Mictlán Free Spins on level 1, players must land 1-5 overlay scatter symbols. When this happens, players can choose from one of four types of wilds: Sticky Wilds - remain on the grid during the ongoing free spin level. Expanding Wilds
- when they land, they grow to span all five reels. When they impact, Exploding Wilds expand to a size of 2x2. Walking Wilds - during the operational level, stay on the reels and move one reel to the left on every spin, eventually falling off the first reel. When a wild feature is selected, it is inaccessible for the following levels, and each level has just one wild feature. Scatters, as previously said, remain on the reels and may be collected during free spins, assisting you in progressing through the four levels. You gain another 5 free spins with a choice of wilds as you advance to the following level. The levels are as follows: At level one, the scatters that start the free spins round are added to the collecting meter. Level 2: Collect a total of 5 scatters. Level 3: Collect a total of 11 scatters. Level 4: Collect a total of 18 scatters. You must complete each level before going on to the next one if you have collected enough scatters. Scatters are no longer visible once you reach level 4. Each level completed earns you an extra 5 free spins, for a total of 20 Mictlán Free Spins.
The game is completed with one additional feature. A win multiplier can be triggered at any time during a spin: The base multipliers in the main game are x1, x2, or x4. This may be upgraded to x2, x4, or x6 in Mictlán Free Spins. They are multiplied by x3, x6, or x10 in level 3 and by x4, x10, or x30 in level 4.
Muerto en Mictlán offers a variety of great subject matter to work from, but Play ‘n Go has kept things light, keeping to pretty standard Day of the Dead iconography found in online slots. During least in the base game, a colorful, flower-adorned 5-reel, 10-payline gaming grid lies amid a town square, which is similarly adorned with flowers, at twilight time of day. The spirit realm does not awaken until free spins are triggered, and visions begin. The music has been adjusted to a positive pitch to avoid negative journeys on this spiritual journey.
Mathematically, this is a medium-volatile slot (ranked 7 out of 10) with a 96.2 percent RTP by default, however it may be found in lower configurations. Winning combos are produced when three or more matching symbols land left to right from the leftmost reel, with bets ranging from 10p to £/€100 each spin. Symbols include stitch-patterned clubs, spades, hearts, and diamonds, as well as caps, flowers, and two Catrin and Catrina figures. A five-of-a-kind victory line can pay out up to 25 times the bet. Wilds pay off as well, but only for five of a type worth 30 times the wager. On the other hand, wilds may substitute for any symbol except the scatter.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of Muerto en Mictlán was delving into the Aztec underworld lore to figure out what was going on. Play'n GO could have taken players on a genuine mind-bender of a slot with such a deep subject matter, but they've kept most of it a relatively conventional Day of the Dead style slot most of the time. That is, until free spins are triggered, the graphics become psychedelic and swirly.
You'll also want the journey to begin as soon as possible, because there's not much going on in the main game other from the random multiplier, which is rather low outside of free spins. The mariachi music used to celebrate winnings keeps the party going, but when free spins are awarded, everything goes up a level. Because five initial free spins isn't much room to maneuver, the bonus game is a sharp explosive blast. Another advantage is that players may choose from four different wild characteristics, allowing them to try something new or stick with their favorites.
As you go through the stages, you would anticipate features to stack on top of each other rather than being given one at a time. Consider how chaotic Wilds Level 4 would have been if all four characteristics were active. But, to be honest, the game doesn't need to stack features to be effective. Multipliers may have a big influence, and the game already offers a massive maximum win of 10,000 times the stake.
Maximum win of x 10,000.
Despite being surrounded by the dead, the slot takes place in a thrilling environment during a drop-dead stunning design. Hehe.
A well-made and fun game. Allow the souls to be free, to soar, and to journey to wherever they need to go.
