Don’t be fooled by it’s somber title – Day of the Dead is a traditional Mexican
celebration aimed at gathering friends and family to assist loved ones, who have
passed away, in their spiritual journey. Dancing, laughing, marigolds, sweetness
and skulls are all on order for the day and this is reflected in IGT’s Day of
the Dead. Full of vivid colors and catchy background music, this game pays
tribute to this internationally recognized festival with its cheerfulness and
charm. The unusual hexagonal shape of the reels provides the player with 720
ways to earn, with winning combinations from left to right or right to left.
Traditional Day of the Dead necessities are represented on the reels and a
lively mariachi tune keeps the player in a fiesta state of mind. It is suspected
that homage is paid to La Calavera Catrina (Lady of the Dead) in the form of the
beguiling bonus symbol. While there aren’t a staggering amount of features in the
game, it will certainly bring out the fun side of every player.
