Muerto En Mictlan Slot (Play n Go)

Muerto En Mictlan Slot (Play n Go)Muerto En Mictlan is a new release with a very intriguing name. The developer behind it is none other than Play n GO, and after a little digging, I came to learn that the translates to Dead in the Underworld.

Mictlan is a common name that means Underworld in Aztec mythology, which makes the title a fitting for the Day of the Dead inspired game.

Here, I got to travel across the world of the afterlife, with my trip starting from the Moon to the Sun kingdom.

Game Set-Up

Muerto En Mictlan offers the common 5x3 reels design, with only 10 active pay lines.

I love the combination of features present here that include a wild symbol, overlay scatters, random multipliers, and free spins with extra wilds.

Betting and Prizes

Muerto En Mictlan doesn’t require a very big amount to place a wager, and with just $0.10, I was able to spin its reels.

However, to cater for high rollers, and gamers who prefer using bigger betting amounts, Play n Go allows bets of up to $100 per spin.

I’m quite impressed with the jackpot that the developer has given the slot, and on a good day, it is possible to take home up to 10,000x the stake.

However, the slot is also high in volatility, but the RTP of 96.22% works well. It is important to note that Play n GO allows online casinos to lower this RTP, so it is important that you confirm with the casino.

Muerto En Mictlan Slot Features

Regular wild symbols are among the available features, and as usual, they serve as substitutes for the regular icons.

In addition, the wilds are also the top paying symbols, and with five of them on a line, I was paid 30x the stake, which is among the highest that I have seen.

My main focus was on the free spins because I know the potential that they always carry. I needed help from overlay scatters to trigger them (1 to 5 of scatters), and this is how I started at level 1.

Initially, I was awarded 5 rounds, and with 5, 11, or 18 scatters available on the reels, I was able to progress to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th levels. 5 extra rounds are added on each new level.

While in the free spins mode, I got to choose from a variety of several types of wilds available. There could be sticky wilds (used in the entire round), exploding wilds (cover 2x2 symbols), expanding wilds (cover their own reels), or the walking wilds (move to the left and eventually leave the game area).

The game’s maximum potential will come from the random multipliers, and these can be triggered randomly.

With their help, I boosted my wins by up to 4x during the paid spins. While in the free spins mode this can go up to 30x during free spins (and will depend on the level).

Theme & Design

Muerto En Mictlan looks like just another Day of the Dead type of slot machine. The slot’s theme borrows from a realm of the dead that is common in the mythology of the Aztec Empire.

I love the design of this game, plus the good blend of symbols that include a man and a woman, flowers, several top hats, and the four low-value card suit icons. Feature symbols are Wilds and scatters.


Muerto En Mictlan is certainly a fun game to play despite its familiar theme. With help coming from the right features, it could be a highly profitable title, but it is also very risky due to its high volatility.

Overall, it is not a bad game, but I wouldn’t recommend it to beginners.
