Grim Muerto is a new video pokie game release we have been eager to try for real play. The first time this game was announced by Play N’ Go we had a chance to see a great promo video that gave us a clear insight on what to expect, but the feeling is much better when playing for real. It’s a great game with a grim theme, but transcribed to the reels in a funny and cartoon like way, so you don’t have anything to be scared of.
You just can’t help smiling while the goofy mariachi skeletons play their music on the reels. You can notice that a lot of work has been put into the visual design of the game and the theme in order to make it attractive and fun to play. But the visual effects are only one part of a job well done, so we’re off to the bonus features of Grim Muerto.
Once you start spinning the reels you will notice the standard Play N’ Go design with 20 pay lines, 5 reels and 3 rows, placing the bet levels from $0.20 up to $100 per spin. But that’s all that is standard here. Grim Muerto has a great set of bonus features which can award expanded wilds, extra wilds and free spins, all to produce great payouts, even up to 250,000 coins.
What We love
Grim Muerto is a top of the line video pokie game which has everything you could wish for. On a visual level the game is perfect, with great details and excellent animations. But the features are the biggest treasure of Grim Muerto. Marco Siniestro sets one reel highlighted during base play, where the wild comes expanded over the full reel size.
Once the free spins are triggered the number of highlighted reels is increased and can be from 2-5 in each of the 10 free spins awarded. We love the fact that a single candle symbol will award 3 extra free spins, 2 candles award 6 extra free spins and the full set of 3 candles on the reels re-trigger the feature with 10 extra free spins.
This is a great combination which can award big payouts on the reels in each spin of the bonus round. We also like the second chance bonus, where you can trigger the free spins even with 2 scatters on the reels or win anywhere for 2-10 x total bet.
What we Do not Like
We really like every aspect of Grim Muerto and wouldn’t like to change anything in the original game design. This is a perfect video pokie game in every way possible.
Grim Muerto is one of the few new pokie releases that we can truly recommend for real play. There are just too many attractive details not to give this pokie a try for real play.
The game theme and visual effects are perfectly complementing one another and the bonus features are too attractive to pass on. The chance for several wild reels or a full screen of wilds to land is too tempting for any player to ignore and that is a win each one of us will try to land on the reels of Grim Muerto.
