Let the Fiesta Begin!
Grim Muerto is a 3-row, 5-reel, 20-fixed payline, online slot with lively mariachi band music that creates a festive atmosphere. Prepare to be dazzled by this online slot’s bright colors and 3D animations which pop out during wins and Feature activations. Grim Muerto’s overall visual quality is outstanding. This isn’t the first slot we’ve seen with a ‘Day of the Dead’ theme. Thunderkick’s Esqueleto Explosivo is another fun-filled fiesta with stunning 3D animations. While Grim Muerto gives Esqueleto Explosivo a run for its money, Thunderkick slots incorporate slot symbols seamlessly into the background giving them an edge over the competition.
Grim Muerto displays values for Balance, Total Bet and Win in coins along the bottom of the slot screen with cash values just beneath that. Individual payline wins are highlighted in ghostly ectoplasm across the reels. To select a Cash Bet ranging from 20p-£100 at Mr Green, simply choose a Bet/Line (1-5 coins) and a Coin Value (0.01-1.00). Paytable values are listed in coins and remain fixed despite changes in Bet selection.
Grim Muerto’s 12 symbols come to life with animations. There are 3 special symbols which include a Guitar Wild, Libro Scatter and Candle Scatter. The Guitar Wild can replace any symbol except for the other special symbols and forms its own winning combinations. Both Scatter symbols are involved in triggering/retriggering Free Spins and can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. This online slot has 9 regular symbols. There are 4 higher-paying mariachi band members and 5 lower-paying card symbols including Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10.
The gameplay of Grim Muerto is from left to right it requires players to get 2+ higher-paying symbols or 3+ lower-paying symbols to form a winning combination starting from reel 1. Wins are calculated by multiplying the Bet/Line by the matching symbols values listed in the paytable. With that in mind, players need to get 3+ Wilds/higher-paying regular symbols or 4+ lower-paying regular symbols to profit along a single payline. When compared to most online slots, Grim Muerto pays relatively high along a single payline.
This slot’s highest paying symbol is the Guitar Wild which pays (1000, 250, 50, 5) giving Grim Muerto the potential to award up to 5,000 coins along a single payline each spin. Multiple wins along differing lines work together with retriggerable Free Spins to give Grim Muerto the potential to award up to 250,000 coins each round.
Like most Play’n GO slots, Grim Muerto has 5 Autoplay options ranging from 10 -50 spins. Advanced Autoplay allows players to set it to stop on any win/Free Spin win, on a win exceeding a set amount or when the Balance increases/decreases by a set amount.
There is no overall game setting which increases speed, however, players can press ‘stop’ to freeze reels speeding up gameplay.
Game Settings include: sound on/off, Auto-Adjust Bets, set the spacebar to spin, set Coin Value; Bet/Line.
Grim Muerto Bonus Features
Marco Siniestro & Expanding Wild: Marco Siniestro is a small, golden skull which appears at the very top of a reel. He highlights a randomly selected reel during regular gameplay and highlights 2-5 reels during Free Spins gameplay. If any Wild/Extra Wild symbol lands on a highlighted reel, then that Wild will expand to cover the entire reel increasing the chance to win exponentially.
Free Spins/Extra Wild: Get 3+ Libro Scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 to be awarded an initial 10 Free Spins. Before the round begins, a higher-paying regular symbol is randomly chosen to act as an Extra Wild. It is possible to retrigger Free Spins by getting 1-2 Candle symbols on reels 1, 3 or 5 during Free Spins gameplay for 3-6 extra spins respectively. Free Spins can be retriggered over and over giving this Bonus Feature the potential to award hefty coin prizes.
Second Chance: Get 2 Libro Scatters to trigger a Second Chance. 1 of 4 mariachi band members (Amador the accordionist, Tauro the trumpeter, Fernando the fiddler, Vincente the vihuela player) randomly awards either a coin win amounting to 2x-10x the Bet or a round of 10 Free Spins.

Join the Mariachi Players for the Fiesta of the Year
Even though this theme has already been used, Grim Muerto is still a very entertaining slot with its stunning animations and Free Spins that just won’t quit. While testing the demo version at Mr Green, we won 4.5 out of every 10 spins. Around 15% of our regular gameplay wins were profitable. Expanding Wilds triggered 11 times out of 100 spins. The Second Chance Feature activated 3 times triggering Free Spins and no coin awards. During one of our Free Spin sessions we were awarded 25 Free Spins (thanks to retriggering) and won 18x/Total Bet. While this online slot pays frequently, expect most of the profit to come from Free Spins.
