All cultures have their own customs and traditions and they are very interesting in their own way. One slot – “El Día de los Muertos” (the Day of the Dead) is about a Mexican celebration and it reminded me about that custom. On that day the streets near cemeteries are filled with flowers, candy skeletons and skull decorations. It is believed that from October 31 till November 2, spirits of the dead visit their families who make altars and prepare food in shapes of skulls, candles, marigolds but the most important detail is a photo of the departed soul which is placed on the altar. Some cultures have fear of death; Mexicans react to death with mourning but with happiness and joy, as well. There is always something that we can learn from each other, from different cultures.
When I saw this slot on Sin City Casino I had to play it. But it started pretty poorly as if someone has died so the slot decided that I can’t be happy and giving. It needed some time to warm up giving me some small wins. When I wanted to quit playing I hit a very nice win of €2 which wasn’t so bad since my bet was €0.15. Just two spins later, out of nowhere, I triggered the Bonus Round in which I won €0.60 as well as 7 Free Spins with an x3 multiplier. Only the last free spin was a winning one – giving me around €1.5. My total winnings were €2.59. I decided to stop playing because the slot was obviously very tight and there was no place for happiness and joy.
After that I tried another slot inspired by Mexico – “Lucha Extreme”. It was much more generous; I didn’t have any big wins but not many dead spins either. I managed to trigger the Free Spins feature and I chose to have 10 Free Spins with a 2x multiplier. I won modest €2.62. Even though money-wise I wasn’t really successful, the slots were fun and I actually enjoyed playing them. Who knows… I might try them again soon.
