How Day of Dead works

After Halloween comes the Day of the Dead in Mexico. This special day is known and celebrated all over the world, and the world of slots is no exception. With skulls, Latin music, typical makeup and candles, Day of Dead immerses you fully in the world of Dia de los Muertos. If you manage to collect enough graves, you may even be able to claim the jackpot!

Day of Dead is a slot machine developed and published by the online game provider Pragmatic Play. Pragmatic Play is considered to be the market leader in recent years due to its impressive productivity and its original, volatile and high quality slots. You will be able to find Day of Dead at Stake online casino exclusively from October 8, 2021. Its 96.49% Theoretical Payout Rate (TPR) puts it in the middle of the pack among slot machines, while its volatility is very high, as it often is with Pragmatic Play slots. As for the winning potential, it is limited to 4,500 times the starting bet, which may seem high in the slot market or slightly below what Pragmatic Play has been used to. The starting grid of Day of Dead is very similar to the classic format. Here, 5 reels each display 4 symbols that need to be connected on paylines to get wins. In addition to a bonus respin and a wild symbol, there is only one feature that can wake you up during the base game of Day of Dead, and that is a walking wild respin. Indeed, a Wild symbol on a grave can appear and its effect is quite different from the simple Wild. It will first expand to occupy the entire reel before triggering the Walking Wild respin feature. Potential connections are paid and a respin is triggered causing the Walking Wild to move one roll to the left. The respins continue until the Walking Wild reaches the first reel before leaving the grid. New Walking Wilds may appear on the grid to extend the respins.

Day of Dead Symbols

In addition to the single Wild, Walking Wild and Scatter, you will come across a total of 11 pay symbols in Day of Dead. These symbols can be classified into 3 different categories according to their rarity:

  • The symbols with the highest value are called premium. They rarely appear, but they allow you to get the biggest wins. They are represented by made-up and framed characters

  • Medium symbols are represented by a guitar, drum and maracas. They are slightly less rare than the premium symbols and pay out accordingly

  • Low value symbols, or common symbols, appear much more often on the grid, but also pay the least. They are represented by the so-called suits of a deck of cards (a green club, a blue diamond, a red heart and a purple spade)

In the image above, you can see the different symbol categories and the potential winnings for each symbol depending on the size of the connection, all in relation to a €1 bet.

The different connections in Day of Dead

Many connections are possible in Day of Dead. Indeed, despite the rather classic 5x4 format of this slot, whether it is lines, diagonals or simple keys, 20 paylines are predefined on this slot. In order to get any winnings, you have to validate a payline connection by getting at least 3 identical symbols on one of these paylines. These are valid from left to right, which means that each connection requires the use of the first reel to be valid. The further the connection extends across the grid, the higher the payout. In the graphic below, you can see the 20 different paylines in this slot.

How the Day of Dead Bonus Works

If the base game seems redundant, the Day of Dead bonus is here to wake you up. To discover this one, you will have to see 3 Scatter appear during the same paying turn. Shaped like a decorated skull, this symbol can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 and only during the base game. The bonus feature consists of respins using the Walking Wild respin feature. During respins, each Walking Wild symbol that appears on the grid is collected in a horizontal reel placed on top of the grid. They are then randomly added to a reel on the grid to extend the respins and therefore the bonus. Each Walking Wild added to the grid increases a total win multiplier by +1. You may have noticed this on the left side of your screen.

To get the bonus off to a good start, 2 Walking Wilds are added to your bonus reel and one of them is deployed on the grid to launch the respins, improving the total multiplier to x2 as soon as you start. The Walking Wilds are added randomly to the grid or simply when the last active Walking Wild is about to disappear. The win multiplier is progressive, so it doesn't reset until the end of the bonus to really get close to the potential of this slot. As with many of Pragmatic Play's slot machines, it is possible to purchase the bonus feature directly by paying 100 times your original bet. However, it is impossible to retrigger or get a better bonus setup in Day of Dead.

Our review of Day of Dead

Day of Dead is a fairly original slot machine despite the few features present in it. It follows the editorial line of its provider, Pragmatic Play, with extreme volatility, a maximum win potential and a progressive multiplier bonus that is simple and effective. The Dia de los Muertos universe, although repeated many times in other slots, is still as fun as ever and the graphics and animations are of very good quality. Day of Dead will certainly please many players, but especially the most reckless!
