Where to play?
You most probably heard about the Day of the Dead or seen people with scary sugar skull paintings – but what exactly does it celebrate? Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is not the Mexican version of Halloween.
While Halloween is rather macabre, the Mexican celebration of the dead is an explosion of colours that demonstrates the love and affection for family members that passed on. It’s a celebration of food, costumes, parties and parades until the wee hours of the morning. (https://www.nationalgeographic.com/travel/destinations/north-america/mexico/top-ten-day-of-dead-mexico/)
Playtech’s Siesta De La Memoria a high variance video slot with a RTP of 91.95% celebrates the Mexican Day of the Dead. It has 20 paylines, 5 reels and pays a top non-progressive jackpot of 500 coins on a single spin.
Does it contain any in-play bonus features? Absolutely. There’s a Mariachi bonus where players must spin the wheel, the top cash prize that can be won is 250x your stake. The next bonus is the Altar Bonus that gives you a choice of 6 picks and last but certainly not least a Festival Free Spins Feature that awards 12 free spins, the free spins also has a special treat which we’ll discuss in a bit.
Against the backdrop of the reels is a paved street. Symbols on the reels include the scatter (green tent), Altar bonus, the girl with roses on her head (wild), sheriff, chef, waitress and the yellow dude with a red hat. The wild symbol is the most valuable, 5 of them at the maximum wager pays 500 coins.
The minimum bet per spin is £0.20 up to £500, you can play the slots on your mobile phone or PC desktop.
The volatility is high up on the scale so be careful, to unlock its bonus features we recommend that you play it with a bankroll of at least £200 at an average bet of £0.80 per spin. This depends on the size of your bankroll too, if you really want to give it a crack you can up the ante but do so with discretion. The coin range is 0.01 to 25. The game has 3 bonus rounds that awards free spins, multipliers and cash prizes.
The wild symbol completes a winning combination when it replaces symbols adjacent to it bar the scatter, bonus and free spins symbols.
The Mariachi bonus is activated by 3 or more scatters irrespective of their position on the reels. You’ll be prompted to spin the Mariachi Wheel, cash prizes will be awarded, it’s all about the scatters and multipliers here:
- 3 Scatters pays 25x your stake
- 4 Scatters pays 50x
- 5 scatters pays a neat 250x your stake
The Altar Bonus mode is triggered when 3 bonus symbols or more pitch. Each alter reveals a cash prize that has stages, the feature ends when the ‘Collect’ symbol appears. The more bonus symbols you get to trigger the feature the bigger the cash prizes.
Festival Free Spins
When 3 free games symbols pop up on reels 2, 3 and 4 the free spins feature is triggered awarding you 12 free spins. During the free spins there are 3 different skull symbols, each offers its own cash prize of 1x, 2x, to 5x your stake. It’s not a re-triggerable free spins feature, once your free spins are done you’ll return to the base game.
Siesta De La Memoria is expressly for fans suffice to say it’s really not our cup of tea. Suppose its a cultural thing. It’s a tight slots that doesn’t part ways with its riches easily, don’t say we didn’t warn you. However, it has plenty of bonus features, the free spins is the best of the lot it’s difficult to trigger though. The Mariachi Bonus is not too shabby either you can win a cool 250x your stake here. If we have to pick between Playtech’s version or Play N’ Go’s Grim Muerto, we’d pick the latte.
