Pay of the Dead
Bone to be wild
About Pay of the Dead
Pay of the Dead by Gaming Realms is one of the newest slots that has been inspired by Mexico’s Día de los Muertos, the annual three-day celebration which starts on the 31st of October and ends on the 2nd of November that is intended to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members.
The celebration of life sees you get your face painted, pull on a sombrero, dress as a colourful skeleton and spill onto the streets of Mexico as you join the festivities. With a mariachi band playing in the background, you’ll be hoping to gather as many bones and sugar skulls as possible – especially those represented by chihuahuas.
It’s a 5-reeled slot that sees you try to match beautiful bones and sugar skulls across 20 fixed paylines. Bet as little as 20p or as much as £50.
Candles are lit during the celebration to light the pathway for visiting spirits, however, you’ll have a completely different reason for wanting to see them burning brightly on the reels of this free Pay of the Dead slots game.
These candles represent the Scatter symbol in Pay of the Dead and there are three different types to look out for with either red, blue, or a mixture of both, appearing on the first, second and third reels at the same time resulting in the free spins feature being triggered.
Before delving into the perks associated with this game feature, it’s worth noting that falling short by only landing two sets of candles on the reels sees the Red-hot Respins feature, made famous in Pigasus & Friends, kick into action as you are offered the opportunity to buy an additional spin in the hopes of landing the final Scatter that is required.
You will receive ‘unlimited’ free spins no matter which combination of candles you trigger the feature using, but you will be assigned a specific number of lives that are lost one at a time whenever the ghoulish female with red roses in her hair pops up on the fifth reel.
A mixture of candles sees you secure two lives with a maximum multiplier of 2x, blue candles earn you three lives with a maximum multiplier of 5x, while it’s red candles you’ll be praying for most of all as these see you claim four lives with a maximum multiplier of 10x.
While none of them provide you with the same number of lives that a cat is said to have, it’s clear to see the potential for incredible wins here.
