About Los Muertos
Los Muertos is an October 2018 html5 video slot adaptation of a Mexican public holiday that is held in early November. The slot title “Los Muertos” is short for the Spanish name “dia de Los Muertos” that means Day of the Dead. Themes: face painting, commemoration, skull artwork, skeletons, rose flowers, musical band, apparition, cemetery, and death.
Wazdan owns two other Mexico-inspired slot games: Fruit Fiesta (December 2017) and Ten or Twenty (October 2016). Los Muertos’s rival slots include: Day of the Dead (May 2013) from IGT, Beautiful Bones (June 2017) from Microgaming, and Grim Muerto (July 2016) from Play’n Go. Nine symbols (lime sugar skull, cyan sugar skull, purple skull, light green sugar skull, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five winning combinations.

There is a character-choosing default side game: players guess which of the two people—a woman in red or a trumpet-holding man— on either side of a grave will face forward to show a payout-nullifying skeleton or a payout-doubling alive person.
