Online slot review: Muerto En Mictlan
We’re all about Halloween slots this month, so get ready to sink your teeth into some spine-tingling titles as we make our way through October and all the thrills it has to offer!
If you’re in the market for a more non-traditional Halloween-themed slot, then we’ve got just the game for you – Muerto En Mictlan, newly launched by Play’n GO and set to bring all the thrills and chills you’re looking for! Translated as ‘Dead in the Underworld’, Muerto En Mictlan is a slot that brings Aztec mythology to life, with Mictlan being the name of the underworld itself. According to legend, most of those who die are taken to Mictlan, journeying from its first level to its ninth over a period of four years, facing many challenges along the way. In this sense, Muerto En Mictlan mirrors the spirit of the myth, taking you on a journey through the many worlds of the afterlife from the Moon to the Sun kingdom, and hopefully finding priceless jackpot treasures along the way!
While the concept of the game is similar to those that draw their inspiration from Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) it’s a fresh new spin on an old theme, and a highly original one at that. Artistically, Muerto En Mictlan looks the part, with flowers, top hats, a man and a woman amongst its symbols, set against the backdrop of a town decorated for the occasion. Even more alluring are the special features, including wilds, scatters, and free spins, with extra wilds and multipliers too, all coming your way across a 5×3 reel game area, with 10 active paylines.
Choose your bet size anywhere from $0.10 to $100 to get started, and if you’re lucky enough, you could eventually be ruling the underworld with a top jackpot payout of 10,000x your original bet!
Ready to make your way through Muerto En Mictlan? Then it’s time to set off on an adventure of legendary proportions! Make sure you’re prepared for your first encounter with the wilds – because if you find any of these symbols on the reels, they’ll instantly substitute for other symbols to create winning combinations. Not only that, 5 wilds on a payline will pay you out an amazing 30x your stake, making any meeting with them a hugely rewarding one!
What you’re really looking for though are the scatters, because 1 to 5 of these will see you straight through to the free spins round, where you’ll have 5 levels to play through – similar to the levels of Mictlan itself. Get 5, 11 and 18 scatters on the reels to move to levels 2, 3 and 4 respectively, and you’ll be given 5 additional spins to play on every level.
During each round, you’ll also have the chance to choose your preferred type of wild, from regular to sticky, exploding, expanding, and even walking too. Even better, get a random multiplier on the reels at any time throughout your game, and you’ll boost your base game winnings by up to 4x, and your free spins winnings by up to 30x!
It’s called the underworld but there’s nothing to fear here – only reasons to celebrate round every corner! So take up the challenge that Muerto En Mictlan presents, and find out what fate has in store for you!
Happy Spinning 🙂
