- Some unique features available during base gameplay
- No big progressives or any form of large payout through a bonus
Esqueleto Mariachi slot is brought to you by Red Tiger Gaming as is a brand new addition to their current portfolio. They’ve decided to celebrate the day of the deal in spectacular style, but of course, this particular slot is available for just the one day, you can play it online anytime, anywhere. For those of you who don’t know, the Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos as it’s known in South America, is a special day to celebrate those who have passed. While that may sound like an occasion to be sad about, the Day of the Dead is full of happiness and joy, celebrating someone’s life rather than mourning their death. Because of all the festivities, colour and joy this festival brings, it makes for an excellent slot theme and deviates from some of the more common themes that seem to be overused, such as Egyptian or Roman themes as with Eye of Horus slot to name just one of many.
Starting off with some of the basics, Esqueleto Mariachi slot offers a 96.1% RTP and boasts a 5×4 layout which is fairly standard, along with 40 pay lines. The main features which sets this slot apart are the three skeleton band members, each with their own instrument and special feature which I will go into shortly. The basic aim of the game though is straight-forward, the idea is to obtain a winning combination using the base symbols of the slot from left to right in order to win money or activate a bonus. These base symbols are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10 (lowest value)
- Cactus in a Sombrero
- Bottle of Tequila
- Wild (highest value)
As well as being the most valuable in a winning combination of like symbols, Wild also substitutes for all of the other base symbols.
Esqueleto Mariachi Slot Bonuses and Features
Guitarrista. The jovial looking skeleton playing his guitar has the special ability to add Wild symbols to the screen as a way to grant you some guaranteed wins. He is also guaranteed to show up at least once during the Free Spins Bonus.
Trompetista. This blue skeleton playing his trumpet will remove various symbols from the screen in order to make room for additional winning pay lines. He can appear at any time during the base game just like the Guitarrista and Maraquero and is also guaranteed to show up during the Free Spins Bonus.
Maraquero. The Maraquero is wearing green this time, and when he starts shaking his rattles the reels will begin to shake as well, nudging them in order to generate some winning pay lines. The Maraquero will also show up at any time and is guaranteed to show up during the Free Spins Bonus.
Free Spins Bonus. In order to win some free spins, you need at least 3 scattered Mariachi Spin symbols across the screen. You will be given a number of free spins, during which the bandmates will activate their own special feature at least once to generate some extra wins and hopefully some big payouts.
That pretty much sums up all Esqueleto Mariachi slot has to offer in terms of bonus features, and I have to say that’s a little disappointing. I think Red Tiger Gaming have designed a very good looking slot with a brilliant theme that is both unique and a lot of fun. The gameplay though lacks the excitement that the true Day of the Dead brings, with just 3 features that, despite occurring regularly, don’t offer anything too special, and a fairly standard Free Spins Bonus. So, unfortunately, although Esqueleto Mariachi slot seems promising at first, it doesn’t quite live up to the hype so don’t be expecting any big wins and exciting features to immerse you into the game.
