Muertos Multiplier Megaways Slot Review 2022
Get ready to celebrate the Day of the Dead with Pragmatic Play in their latest release, Muertos Multiplier Megaways!
The Day of the Dead is a traditional holiday which is celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November every year. This particular holiday involves friends and family coming together to pay their respects to their deseased loved ones and enjoy food and drinks in honour of the dead.
It’s not uncommon this time of year to see a fair few holiday inspired slots on the shelf, particularly those based around Halloween and Christmas, but it’s also an opportunity for Providers to bring forward other holidays that are equally as important in other cultures such as this one.
We celebrated the Day of the Dead this time last year in Pragmatic Play’s Day of Dead slot which left a good impression on players, but will Muertos Multiplier Megaways do the same? Let’s play on and find out!
Muertos Multiplier Megaways Base Game and Features
Muertos Multiplier Megaways is a 6 reel slot with up to 117,649 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more (or 2 or more of the highest paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available to players is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other betting options in between the two. Muertos Multiplier Megaways has a theoretical RTP of 96.03% and a maximum win capacity of 10,000x.
Like most Megaways titles, Muertos Multiplier Megaways features both Cascading Reels and an additional Sliding Reel. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will drop down from above. Once a Cascade occurs, there is a chance that more winning combinations will form.
If a winning combination is formed using one or more of the symbols on the Sliding Reel, they will also be removed from the reel and all remaining symbols will slide one position to the left and new symbols will slide onto the reel, filling all empty positions.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Muertos Multiplier Megaways is the Skull, followed by the Hot Sauce, Cactus, Taco, Nachos and Guitar. Low-paying symbols fall to Spades, Diamonds, Clubs and Hearts. There is also a Wild symbol present on the Sliding Reel only, which substitutes for all symbols except Scatters.
During the base game, whenever a Wild symbol lands in view it will reveal a random Multiplier of either x2 or x3. This Multiplier is then applied to any wins for that particular Cascade and stored in a Meter on the right side of the reel set.
If more Wild symbols appear during the Cascade, the total Multiplier value is multiplied by the value of new Wild Multipliers. Once all Cascades are complete and no more wins occur, tne total Multiplier value that is currently stored will reset back to x1 for the next paid spin.
Muertos Multiplier Megaways Free Spins
Landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters across the reels, triggers the Free Spins round. Before the Bonus round can begin, a random number of Free Spins will be selected through a Wheel.
- 3 Scatters – Awards between 5 and 14 Free Spins.
- 4 Scatters – Awards between 6 and 14 Free Spins.
- 5 Scatters – Awards between 7 and 14 Free Spins.
- 6 Scatters – Awards between 8 and 14 Free Spins.
If your total amount of Free Spins awarded is below 14, you will be given the choice to Gamble them for more. If gambling your Free Spins is not for you, then you can simply click the Collect button and the Free Spins round will begin.
If you choose to Gamble, a new Wheel will present itself with a Red segment and Green segment. Landing the cursor in the Green section of the wheel means that the Gamble has been successful and you will win the next level of Free Spins available.
If the cursor lands in the Red section of the wheel, this means the Gamble has been unsuccessful and you will return to the base game empty-handed. If you choose to Gamble and then change your mind, the Collect button is always available and you can walk away before spinning the Wheel.
During the Free Spins round, the Wild Multiplier feature is active. Each time a Wild symbol lands, its Multiplier is applied to any wins that are present during a Cascade and then added to the total Multiplier Meter. In addition to this, for every Cascade that occurs, the total Multiplier is increased by +1. During this round, the total win Multiplier does not reset between Free Spins.
Landing 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 Scatters during Free Spins, awards an additional +1, +2, +3, +4 and +5 Free Spins respectively. There are no limits to how many times the Free Spins round can retrigger.
Muertos Multiplier Megaways Bonus Buy
For those of you that are outside the UK, you will benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
Pragmatic Play has granted players access to the Free Spins round for a total cost of 100x your current bet. The RTP when purchasing Free Spins drops slightly from 96.03% to 96.00%.
Muertos Multiplier Megaways: Our Verdict
With so many Day of the Dead inspired slots available to players, it’s hard to get particularly excited about Muertos Multiplier Megaways, other than it features Big Time Gaming’s extremely popular Megaways mechanic which we happen to be a big fan of.
You may not agree, but the design of Muertos Multiplier Megaways looks similar to that of Stakelogic’s Hot Chilliways slot which again was another slot that we underestimated alot like this one. Although Muertos Multiplier Megaways looks simple, when we took it for a spin we were a little surprised.
At first the base game seemed very simple and at times a little boring, but once you see the Wild Multiplier feature in action, your whole perception of the game changes and you begin to appreciate it a lot more. To make the Free Spins round a lot more thrilling, the Wild Multiplier is also active here but the total win Multiplier does not reset, which makes for some pretty epic wins.
All in all, Muertos Multiplier Megaways is a dependable Megaways title, but it doesn’t reinvent the wheel by any means.
