The Mexican Day of the Dead has inspired a few slot games just recently. Capecod Gaming is one of several software developers to have been inspired in just this same way. The game features some traditional symbols you’d associate with this event, and the detail is very good too. Watch out for some of the people dressed up to celebrate the event, along with their faces painted to look like skulls. Yes, this is not a slot for the faint of heart, although it is largely celebratory in nature.
There are 25 lines to bet on, and the five reels in play here are laid over the top of the background. This fades just enough so you cannot see much of what is going on. The white skull surrounded by flowers is used as a scatter, although this is labeled too. A symbol bearing lots of food and drink is used as the wild too, so this can be useful to find during play.
There is also another skull in play here, and this is called Jolly. It is useful when you play the free spins (yes, you get a chance to win some of those), because it substitutes for everything else in those spins. And that is about it. If you win some free spins – or magic spins, as they are called here – all you will see on the reels are various different-colored skulls and the Jolly symbol. Unfortunately, we struck lucky and got the spins on the first go… but we didn’t win anything from them. We wonder how often that could happen?
