Dia de los Muertos





  • Unique theme
  • Good bonus features
  • Crisp graphics


  • Not for high rollers

It’s October again which means all the Halloween-themed slots are coming out to play – and you can too! No witches and wizards in this new Pragmatic Play title though – here we’ll be commemorating Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) and honouring our lost loved ones… while playing for spine-tingling jackpots at the same time!

Not familiar with Dia de los Muertos? Taking place on 1 and 2 November every year, Dia de los Muertos is a holiday celebrated by those of Mexican heritage – one that pays homage to those who have passed, in a joyful celebration of sound and colour. No sadness or mourning here – instead Dia de los Muertos is light-hearted and cheerful, focusing on family, friends and happy memories, making it the perfect backdrop for exciting online slots gaming!

If that sounds like the slots vibe you’re after, then give Day of Dead a spin. As soon as you log on, you’ll find it filled with traditional Dia de los Muertos symbols, from drums and guitars to skulls and headstones too. With a 5×4 game area and 20 active paylines, there’s plenty to play for – and given its range of bonus features like regular, expanding and walking wilds, scatters, free spins, and an increasing multiplier, you’ll have plenty of winning opportunities to choose from. Speaking of winning, once you select your bet size from $0.20 to $100 per spin, you’ll be playing for a top payout of 4,500x – which means if you’re able to afford a max bet, you could be walking away with a massive $450,000 jackpot! Now that’s something worth celebrating!

Ready to get wild with Day of Dead? Then first of all, you’ll need to look out for the green wild – a symbol that’ll substitute for any other symbol, in order to create winning combos and maximize your payout potential. Next, there’s the tombstone wild, one that’ll expand to fill the whole reel for even more winning chances. Not only that, it’ll trigger a respin feature for you, with the wild expanding reel moving to the left with every spin, until it disappears from the game area. Find more tombstone wilds during your respins round, and you’ll keep retriggering more respins for yourself, until the wild reel leaves the game area completely.

Those aren’t the only respins you’ll come across though. Get a scatter on each of reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time, and you’ll trigger the same respins round with the same walking wild feature – and the longer you can keep the wild reel in the game area, the more you’ll win. What’s more, you’ll be able to boost your wins even further with the help of an expanding multiplier, one that’ll increase with every respin you play.

It’s called Day of Dead but if Lady Luck is on your side, it could be Day of Jackpots too! Which is a whole other kind of celebration, and one that we can totally get behind. You’ll have to be in it to win it though, so if Day of Dead sounds like the slot for you, give it a spin and see what the future holds!

Happy Spinning 🙂
