Dia del Mariachi Megaways slot REVIEW
Dia del Mariachi Megaways ReviewAll41 Studios have an interesting little selection of Megaways titles under their belt already, and Dia del Mariachi Megaways is their 4th effort with the licensed dynamic reels engine. The Mexican Day of the Dead theme was first made popular by Thunderkick’s legendary Esqueleto Explosivo, and the skeleton Mariachi musicians that introduces the Sombrero Spin feature are clearly inspired by that game.
The pastel-colored buildings in the background is a bit unusual for a theme like this perhaps, as most similar games focus on the street level festivities. The theme is upbeat and lively nonetheless, not least thanks to the soundtrack, and you can look forward to fun modifier animations triggered on the top sliding reel. You get a lot more modifier action in the bonus round, with Sombrero Spins active at all times, and up to 10,000x can be won when the jackpot wheel triggers.

Dia del Mariachi Megaways Slot Features
The premium symbols pay between 2 and 50 x your stake for 6 of a kind wins, and you also have a wild symbol that slides in on the top reel to substitute for regular pay symbols. The Rolling Reels mechanic removes winning symbols from the grid, and the gaps are then filled with new and/or existing symbols that drop down from above. This process repeats as long as you keep winning.
The Sombrero Spin feature may trigger at any given time in the base game, and you will then see one or more positions on the top sliding reel being highlighted. If 1 or more of the 4 following special symbols slide into a highlighted position, their respective feature is unleashed:
Piñata - reveals a random cash prize of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x your stake.
Firecracker - turns into a wild that also transforms all positions below into wilds.
Rocket - flies up and crashes onto the main grid, turning 3 random positions on reels 2 to 6 wild.
Jackpot Wheel - gives you a spin on the jackpot wheel, where you can win 15x, 50x, 500x or 10,000x your stake from the Mini, Minor, Major and Mega jackpots, respectively.
You need 4+ gold bar scatters anywhere in view in the same Rolling Reels sequence to trigger the Bonus Round, and this awards 10 free spins. You get +2 extra spins on top of that for each extra triggering scatter above 4. The Sombrero Spins feature is always active in the bonus round, which means that you can get modifiers on every single free spin. Non-UK players, and anyone eligible, may purchase the bonus round for 80x the total stake.
The 200 Spins Dia del Mariachi Megaways Slot Experience
You get to see some base game wins, before we purchase the bonus round around the 2-minute mark. We got the minimum of 4 triggering scatters, which gave us 10 free spins, and the bonus round plays out for the remainder of the 4:55-minute highlights video. Check it all out for yourself by hitting the play button below.
The pace of the game is pretty decent with the turbo switched on, but it could perhaps have been a tad faster. The Mariachi theme is lively enough, and it comes with some pretty fun modifier animations. The blue rocket flying towards the screen before diving back towards the grid is a highlight in that regard. The Piñata top prize could definitely have been a lot higher than 10x, but the jackpot wheel sort of takes care of that anyway.
The base game flows smoothly, awarding top-up wins here and there, and not least when the Sombrero Spin triggers one or more modifiers. All in all it’s quite entertaining, and a spin on the jackpot wheel can land you 10,000x on a lucky day. The overall potential is 12,000x your stake, and the bonus round comes jam-packed with modifiers on more or less every spin. All41 is at least trying new things with the licensed dynamic reels engine, which is always appreciated.
