Red Tiger Gaming has announced that it will launch its new online slot Esqueleto Mariachi on March 26, adding to the growing list of games with themes based on the Mexican Day of The Dead festival (think Play’n Go‘s Grim Muerto, IGT‘s Day of the Dead, Fortunes of the Dead by NextGen and Thunderkick‘s Esqueleto Explosivo)
In similar fashion to its predecessors, the Red Tiger offering has a Mexican mariachi sound track, engaging animation and the bizarre symbols we associate with the festival (the title translates as “skeleton mariachi”) but Red Tiger have come up with a fun and innovative format to set their 5 reel, 40 pay-line game apart.
On the right of the reel frame are three shuttered windows, each concealing a musical instrument-playing skeleton. These randomly burst out of the windows to reward players with special features:
Trompetista removes some symbols from the reels to award new pay-outs, whilst Guitarrista will add wilds to guarantee a winning combination, and Maraquero helps collect extra wins by activating a Nudge option. Combined, the three can trigger up to 25 free Mariachi Spins.
Players can win up to 1000x stake thanks to generous multipliers.
