Grim Muerto is a fun and visually impressive slot game by Play ‘n GO that was released in June 2016. It features some interesting characters – the dead mariachis – and the game is built around this world that is common in games and art. This colourful online slot features five reels with three symbols on each reel is has a medium variance.
Grim Muerto gameplay and features
The graphics are beautiful and depict the theme the way you’d expect it to, and it’s in high resolution as well. This is one of the rare slots in which it’s good to have card symbols which take up space on reels, as it puts the focus on the really important symbols, and there are quite a few in Grim Muerto.
Free spins feature with extra wilds
There are two Wilds in Grim Muerto, the regular Wild and the Extra Wild which is only possible during free spins, where one mariachi will become an Extra Wild. The Book is a Scatter symbol that activates the free spins game if you land three of them on your reels. The free spins feature can be reactivated if you land three Candle Scatter symbols, which are unique to the free spins game, and for one Candle Scatter, you’ll get +3 free spins every time.
Second chance feature
If you happen to get only two Book Scatters instead of three and therefore miss out on the free spins game by one Scatter, you’ll activate the Second Chance feature, where you’ll get four mariachis to choose from, and one of them will hide a significant prize, it could be even 1000 coins. Crucially, one of the mariachis will also be hiding that third Book Scatter you need, though the chance for that isn’t 1/4. Maybe 1/50, if that.
Marco Siniestro Feature: get even more wilds
Marco Siniestro is a feature that highlights one reel on every spin during the base game, and if you happen to land one Wild on that particular reel, the Wild will expand to fill the entire reel. During the free spins bonus, two up to five reels will be highlighted, increasing the chance of expanded Wilds. Also, during free spins, the Extra Wild will also expand.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) for Grim Muerto is 96.00%, which isn’t bad, and the variance is on the low side of medium. The game won’t be eating much of your bankroll before you get to that free spins game, but it won’t offer any major prizes either, as you get only 1000x for landing five Wilds, for example. There is no jackpot either, which means that a low variance game such as this one is designed to keep you hovering around your starting bank, letting you enjoy all these bonus features and beautiful animations for a prolonged period without losing too much money.
