Muerto En Mictlan slot transports you to a festive celebration filled with vibrant colors and engaging Mexican-themed ambiance. Activate random multiplier boosts and reach the 4th level of the spirit realm in the unique Mictlán free spins feature!

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Muerto en Mictlán is a thrilling slot game developed by Play'n GO, based on the Mexican festival Day of the Dead. This event commemorates the deceased and honors their memory. The game's setting is Mictlán, the Aztec underworld, where players embark on a mystical adventure.

The game's grid features a 5x3 reel setup with 20 paylines, situated in a town square adorned with vibrant flowers. Symbols include traditional stitch-patterned spades, clubs, hearts, and diamonds, as well as hats, flowers, and two characters named Catrin and Catrina. 

Winning combinations are formed when three or more matching symbols line up on at least one of the 10 paylines. However, you can also use the special Wild symbol to form these win-ways. Wild symbols are represented by an Animated Skull and wherever they land, they’ll substitute for any other pay symbol to form payline combinations. They also happen to be the most rewarding symbol in the game. Landing a full line of 5 Wild symbols will reward 30x your stake.

The main feature of the base game is the Multiplier Meter. At random times the multiplier meter triggers and enhances your wins by 2x or 4x. You can even upgrade the feature in the bonus game, which is where the real adventure begins.

In order to trigger the Mictlán Free Spins bonus game you’ll need to collect Scatter symbols. These special symbols come in an overlay form, meaning they land on top of regular symbols, and therefore do not block your payline combination payouts. You can recognize a Scatter overlay icon by a pink swirl effect. 

Once 3+ Scatters land anywhere on the grid, you’ll begin a progressive Mictlán Free Spins feature with 4 levels. However, before starting, you’ll be able to release one spirit to enhance your Wild symbols to have one of the following effects. You can only select one Wild feature per level, and the chosen feature becomes unavailable for the following levels. ​

  • Sticky Wilds – remain on the entire active free spin level grid.
  • Expanding Wilds – expand to cover the entire reel upon landing.
  • Exploding Wilds – increase to 2x2 in size upon hitting.
  • Walking Wilds – remain on the reels for the active level and move one reel to the left on each spin, falling off the first reel.

In order to advance to the next levels, you’ll need more Scatter symbols. The game makes it slightly harder, however, by making Scatters unavailable on the 4th reel. Upon reaching the next level, you’ll be awarded another five free spins and a Wild feature selection. The levels progress as follows:​

  • Level 2: Collect 5 scatters to unlock.
  • Level 3: Collect 11 scatters to unlock.
  • Level 4: Collect 18 scatters to unlock.

Once you reach level 4, Scatters no longer appear. Each level achieved awards an additional 5 free spins, making a total of 20 Mictlán free spins possible. Additionally, the multiplier meter upgrades along with your levels. ​

  • Level 1 Multiplier – x1, x2, or x4. 
  • Level 2 Multiplier – x2, x4, or x6. 
  • Level 3 Multiplier – x3, x6, or x10. 
  • Level 4 Multiplier – x4, x10, or x30.

Roshtein’s Take

Muerto En Mictlan has a lot of style but mediocre results. It’s clear that Play’n GO is trying to make players feel the power with their “wild choice" feature in each bonus round level but in my opinion is not bringing it 100%. Simply put, something is missing when it comes to execution. It is still a good game that can produce nice wins and exciting gaming sessions.
