Muertos Multiplier Megaways slot review
Muertos Multiplier Megaways slot by Pragmatic Play adds a new base game and bonus mechanic which we haven't seen recently from games like Madame Destiny Megaways or any other variations of Great Rhino Megaways for example. The theme is a common slot one, Mexico and muerte with StakeLogic having made El Cowboy Megaways to use this same subject. We don't need to use much imagination to guess the symbols, music and sound effects here therefore. So can we multiply our bankroll here or will it be morte rapido for our cash?
On the reels...
You get a 324-117649 ways set up over 6 reels of 2-7 rows on Muertos Multiplier Megaways. There's a top scroll of four single symbols above the middle four reels where you'll see any Wilds you'll get. the main reel symbols fall stacked and single and pay 5x stake for the muerto Skull down to 0.5x for 6-of-a-kind of the lowest card value. The Wilds offer a 2x or 3x multipliers which are multiplicative and once they disappear after involvement in wins their multiplier is held on a meter to the right. Should another Wild appear on the scroll within that spin, it/they will multiply the meter by their product i.e. 3x stored from the first win, then two 2x Wilds scroll across during the tumble that will be 4 times the 3x held, so the round multiplier becomes 12x.
Free Games Gamble
There's a volatile bonus round on Muertos Multiplier Megaways and 3+ scatters will trigger a wheel awarding 5 - 14 free games. This can be bought for 100x bet in some jurisdictions by the way. There's an option to gamble your spins to the maximum 14 by using the gamble wheel. Any green gamble adds +1 spin to your total but a losing brown gamble will end your whole bonus round. The winning odds of each step up the spins ladder are 67% for 5 up to 6 through to 85% for 13 up to 14 (rounded up) as you progress. As getting more than 7 spins awarded on the initial 5-14 numbered wheel is unusual, many players will be tempted by the gamble here!
Our Muertos Multiplier Megaways free spins still award the 2 or 3x Wild multipliers but now as you may have guessed, the multiplier is not reset between spins. On top of that you now get a traditional-style 1x increasing multiplier for each winning tumble. Extra spins can be won in your bonus, 1-6 of them for 2-6 scatters but you'll most likely see 1 for 2 scatters or rarely 2 for 3 scatters. So say your global multiplier has reached 17x and you get a win with one 3x Wild present (the Wilds don't need to count in the win to enable their multiplier) then your multiplier rises by 1x to 18x and is then multiplied 3x for the Wild thus becomes 54x for the next spin. Get more wilds then you can see how high it may get! Maximum permitted win is 10,000x bet.
Muertos Multiplier Megaways slot has a RTP of 96.03% but funnily enough slightly less at 96.00% if using bonus buys. It's colourful, with average graphics, sounds and animations. You won't win much in the rather tedious base game unless you get a series of tumbles including 3 or 4 Wilds within a spin. It's all about the feature which admittedly is quite exciting but on the other hand it means the bonus buy if available will be more tempting to the player. Any slot made for streaming or designed so the bonus buy is the most attractive thing about it, to me is one to avoid. So I'm afraid that from now on, this game is muerto to me...
