Dia Del Mariachi Megaways Slot (Microgaming)

Dia Del Mariachi Megaways Slot (Microgaming)Dia Del Mariachi Megaways is the latest addition to the elaborate Microgaming’s catalogue of exclusive slots. The developer partnered with All41 Studios to create a game that is dedicated to one of Mexico’s least popular holidays.

With the slot touching more on the mariachi singers, it allows us to sample part of Mexican culture.

Below are more details about Dia Del Mariachi Megaways:

Game Set-Up

We are seeing slots with much more pay lines in the recent past, and for Dia Del Mariachi, we get to work with up to 117,649 ways to win. This setup is quite common with the Megaways engine, and it is usually accompanied by 6 reels that hot a random number of symbols – mostly between 2 to 7.

Moving on to the features, there are free spins, wilds, bonus games, as well as different modifiers.

Betting and Prizes

Betting for real money will require you to choose from a betting range of between $0.20 and $20 per spin.

With plenty of ways to win, you get an easier opportunity to form a winning combo that can pay as much as 10,000x top jackpot.

Another way that you can use to trigger this kind of payment is by spinning the Jackpot Wheel. This way, you may be lucky to hit the Mega Jackpot.

A majority of the Megaways slots come with very high volatility, and it is the same case with this new slot title from Microgaming.

Dia Del Mariachi, however, offers a decent RTP of 96.42%, and the best part is that he the developer has offered several values for the same. All that you have to do is to confirm with your online casino and see what value they are offering.

Dia Del Mariachi Slot Features

First and foremost, this slot machine offers ways to win but you will notice that there is an extra horizontal reel that is located on the top part of the 2nd to the 5th columns.

Each reel gets a random number of symbols, and you can get up to 7 on each. Also, the number of ways to win will vary from one reel to the other, and this is how you may end up with up to 117,649.

Once you form winning combos, the Rolling Reels trigger will come in and remove the winning symbols, replacing them with new ones.

This process will continue as long as you have new wins happening, and I love the potential here since you get to trigger extra wins this way.

The wild is the other feature on the slot, and just like we see on other slots, you can use it as a substitute. However, up to four modifier symbols may be activated via a random feature known as the Sombrero Spin.

The Sombrero Spin will work by marking some random locations within the horizontal reel. In case there is a modifier symbol present on such a spot, then you will get direct access to its role. This is how the multipliers work:

Wheel- it allows you access to the slot’s jackpot feature. Upon the spinning of the wheel, you can trigger one of the available fixed jackpots (payments are between 15x to 10,000x the stake).

Rockets- these will transform themselves and also add an extra 1-3 wilds on the last 5 columns.

Firecrackers- they will convert themselves, plus the reels where they appear into full wilds.

Pinatas- these pay between 2x and 10x the stake;

With the help of 4-6 scatters (Gold Bars), you will be rewarded with between 10 to 14 free spins. However, if you are not one of the most patient gamers around, you can trigger the free spins by paying 80x the stake.

Theme & Design

Just like the popular Day of the Dead, The Day of the Mariachi is a real holiday. Mexicans love good parties, and music is always part of the fun. This is clear from what we are seeing in this slot.

The graphics are pretty good and the symbols are well designed. Talking of symbols, you will have images of low-pay Royals, plus several premium ones in the form of musical instruments (violins, trumpets, guitars, noisemakers). The Gold Bars, the W logo, as well as the four modifiers, serve as feature symbols.


Overall, Dia Del Mariachi is pretty good, and the slot offers a better top jackpot when compared to other Megaways titles.

It has great features, and a decent RTP, making it a good option for all levels of players.
