The Day of the Dead is one of the strangest holidays in my opinion. Celebrating the dead is decidedly odd, but I absolutely love it, as the holiday busts out a joyous atmosphere as well as some absolutely fantastic art. Play'n Go has successfully grasped the concept of the holiday with its Grim Muerto slot, which lets you celebrate with a skeleton mariachi band.
Grim Muerto is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that takes place in a town square during the holiday, with symbols designed in the custom art pattern. Game symbols include: 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace card symbols as well as a pink, green, purple, and orange mariachi player (in skeletons of course), a golden guitar, a golden skull, and a candle skull symbol.
Feature wise, the Grim Muerto slot takes and offers players wild symbols, expanding wilds, free spins, a pick'em bonus, and a gamble feature. The gamble feature allows players to put winnings at risk for a chance to win more by picking either a card color or the suit of the card. The game has a theoretical return to player percentage of 96.5%, which is pretty competitive for an online slot.
I played the Grim Muerto video slot for a bit of time and found the game to be enchanting, with the artwork being spectacular and showing an amount of craft that is put forth by the game's designers. The game features are quite lucrative and happened to come out very often for me, allowing me to walk away with some big wins. If you're the type of punter who enjoys unique slots, then I highly recommend Grim Muerto to you. It has one of the most unique art styles I've seen online and the game is a lot of fun to play.
