Game developer – Red Rake
Number of reels: 5×3
Although there are a bevy of pokie features that are widely used and quite frankly over-used, like the fruity, diamonds or riches themes, the Mexican holiday theme is not as popular but looks to gain an advantage over its peers.
Featuring wilds, sticky reels and a lot of other features, like bonus features, mini-games and additional wilds that activate themselves at every spin, Muertitos is in no way just a little brother of Dia dos Muertos by the same Red Rake Gaming. Based on a famous Mexican celebration, Red Rake’s Muertitos online pokie was designed to celebrate the Day of the Dead, or the Dia dos Muertos.
Making use of some cool elements like wilds scatters and sticky reels, Muertitos has a pretty classical structure and format, of 5×3 with both-ways pay lines.
You have the option of starting to play the Muertitos online pokie by taking the first step and deciding on how much you want to spend for each round of pokie spinning. The minimum bet you can play at any given moment is 0.20 credits/round.
The moment right after you have selected the preferred bet size, you must then decide if you want to play all of the 4 cards or less because you have that option. You also have the option of activating cards again by pressing the “ON” button right after choosing to decrease the bet and deactivate them. The total amount you bet is based on the number of cards that you play, so be ready for some big wins if you decide to play the maximum amount on all 4 cards.
In order to start spinning the reels, press Play and just watch the special numbers get drawn and pile up some cool wins. The moment the numbers that are drawn from a winning combination on any of the reels and with any cards, you will get to collect the associated payouts.
The payments start at a very low 0.75x your total stake for a pattern that goes on a single line. There are a total of 19 different patterns, the very best of which pays 450x your bet.
Don’t worry if you completely miss a combination on a particular pattern, because the wins are multiplied every time you spin and do not win. They also are cumulative. The ball that is extra in the main round will even add no less than 10 skull symbols right to the middle of the screen.
Each time you pick a new combination on a particular pattern, it will cost you an x amount of money, based on your balance, the first pick also being the cheapest. For any additional guesses you have, you will be able to invest more money into your bet.
Wild balls are also awarded via the extra balls features, which you can, in turn, modify into any missing variations and values from your chosen cards just by clicking/tapping the wild ball and then entering the number in your card. There are also a number of free balls that can be won in this online pokie, for latter use in extra features that will award additional combinations in the bonus games.
