There are many slots out there that flatter to deceive purely based on their name and developer IGT’s Day of the Dead is one of those slots.
Don’t get me wrong, it is a perfectly decent enough slot but when you see the name you are immediately thinking of a gothic vibe where death and darkness will contaminate the reels. You could not be more wrong. This is a slot that gives the horror genre a light-hearted spin.
720 Ways to Win!
Day of the Dead is a 5 reel, 720 ways to win slot where the symbols include skeletons with make up on, colorful fruit, pies and there is even a trio of mariachi musicians to add some carnival festivities to proceedings. What more could you want?
Find the Skull Scatters to Earn a 50x Multiplier
The game includes a Wild symbol that substitutes for all other symbols except for the Scatter symbols to complete winning combinations. The Wild is represented by the coffin shaped cookies. The Scatter symbols are represented by a brightly colored skeleton skull. If you manage to hit at least three of them across the reels then you will rewarded with a multiplier value on your win of up to 50x.
Hit the Bonus Symbols to Win up to 240 Free Spins
The slot also has Bonus symbols that hold the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. In order to trigger the free spins you need to hit a combination of the Bonus symbols on each of the five reels. This will award you with at least 8 free spins. The Bonus symbols function as stacked symbols and this means there is the potential for you to win up to 96 free spins initially. Then there is also the chance to re-trigger the free spins and you can be awarded up to a staggering 240 free spins.
Fans of the horror slot genre might be slightly disappointed that this slot is more cabaret than Candy Man. However, the surprising theme does not deter from the fact this is a solid slot that most will enjoy to play. The scatter symbols and bonus symbols ensure there is lots to play for and it might not be as dark as NetEnt’s grizzly Zombies or Playtech’s bewitching Halloween Fortune but this is a slot you will regret missing out on if you don’t give it a spin.
