Book of Muertitos Slot Review

Being avid fans of online slot games, we recently delved into the mystical world of “Book of Muertitos” by Spearhead Studios. Inspired by the vibrant traditions of Mexico’s Day of the Dead, this slot game offers an immersive experience with its captivating graphics, enchanting audio, and exciting gameplay mechanics.

“Book of Muertitos” immediately caught our attention with its visually striking design. The vibrant colors, intricate details, and beautifully animated symbols pay homage to the rich aesthetic of Day of the Dead celebrations. The background showcases a candle-lit yet serene cemetery. Each spin immerses you further into this captivating world, creating a visually immersive experience that is a treat for the eyes.

Similar to Pragmatic Play’s “Day of Day”, the Book of Muertitos tries to capture the same essence, something we believe it partly succeeds in doing so. Still, it’s hard for a small studio to go head to head with the current “King of iGaming”.

The sound design of the game is equally praiseworthy. The cheerful music in the background, combined with subtle sound effects during spins and wins, adds an extra layer of excitement and authenticity to the gameplay. The audio complements the visual elements perfectly, creating an atmosphere that truly captures the essence of the Day of the Dead festival.

How to play Book of Muertitos

EveryMatrix is one of the major software producers in the iGaming sector that also happens to be Spearhead Studios’ parent company. The studios launched successfully back in 2019 and just like the majority of their hit titles, didn’t “go off” until mid-2021 which was when the game in question got published as well.

Now, regarding the actual game, Book of Muertitos offers a familiar layout of five reels and three rows, providing a classic slot experience. The game features ten fixed paylines paying left to right.

If you play it on a mobile device, all of the controls are conveniently situated at thumb distance. Apart from the top right corner mute button, all choices on the desktop version are easily accessible and neatly stacked on the right side of the screen.

Bets start at 10 cents and climb up to 100 bucks per spin meaning that this particular slot is a great option for low rollers and high ballers alike.

The RTP of “Book of Muertitos” is 96.04% which is considered a pretty standard rate for such high variance book-themed slots (i.e. Book of Dead). The winning spin hit rate is around 25% (1 in 4) but the potential top prize of 27,000x is worth the hassle.

There are 10 symbols in total but 9 of them are regular ones coming in the form of (low-paying) 10-J-Q-K-A followed by the most rewarding character symbols (Perdo Mora, Sarita Esmeralda, Rodrigo Marino, Rosario Escarlata) and yes, their names refer to the colors purple, green, blue, and red. The special symbol is:

  • Wild/Scatter – The golden Book of Muertitor acts as both the wild and scatter, substituting any other symbol to form or improve wins. Landing 3 of these will trigger the free spins mode.

Book of Muertitos Features

As previously stated, this particular title belongs in the book-themed slot category meaning that bonus features aren’t something we haven’t seen before. This applies to most cases but here, there is a catch! Let’s check it out.

Book of Muertitos Free Spins

Hitting at least 3 scatters will award 10 free spins. The feature can’t be retriggered. Before the spins begin, one of the 9 regular symbols will be randomly chosen.

Every time that symbol appears, provided it can form a winning combination, it will fully expand to cover the entire reel. However, that’s not all. Here, instead of retriggering the feature, the wild (gold book) has a special attribute.

Whenever it appears it will expand to the whole reel as well but each instance of it will be assigned a random 1x, 2x, or 3x multiplier. They are also summed and applied to the current spin’s win. The maximum total is 27x hence the top prize of 27,000x (the highest paying 5-of-a-kind normally pays 1,000x).
