Grim Muerto is a particularly eye-catching slots game. Here, the Mexican festival of Días de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, takes centre stage and with it comes the vibrancy and iconography of the Mexican fiesta. Are there skeletons in sombreros? You betcha there are. Are there roses, guitars, trumpets and accordions? Of course there are. Are there tachos and tequila? Well, actually no there aren’t but everything else Mexican and Mariachi appears to be in place. There’s even relatively catchy background music that won’t have you heading straight for the mute button like so many other games. The bonus features are also relatively interesting. There is some variety here, certainly enough to keep most players entertained for a reasonable amount of time. The most negative aspect of the game has to be the House Edge. At 4%, Play ‘n Go really could be offering us a bit more here but for those with an interest in the undead and foot tapping trumpet music, maybe there’s enough here to keep you entertained for a while.
