Where to play Fortunes of the Dead Slot Online

Fortunes of the Dead SlotFortunes of the Dead takes inspiration from the Mexican and South American holiday and festival Day of the Dead. The aesthetic of Fortunes of the Dead is expressed through mariachi music, skeletons in sombreros and suits, and vibrant colors.

The thematic experience of Fortunes of the Dead does not take away from the traditional slot experience. This five-reel, 50 payline game makes a slight deviation from digital slots played in person. It has an RTP of 95.79%, slightly above average for a slot game released in 2017. The bet amount of 0.5–500 is impressive.

Bonus features

Game Symbols

The wild feature, aptly named “Once in a Wild,” gives the player a respin as long as four wilds are on the screen. The wilds are sticky, which means that the wilds stay in the same place until a bonus spin starts. The wild’s graphic features a skeleton face with the text ‘wild’ behind it.

The scatter symbol takes the form of a skeleton horse with the text scatter in front of it. Have scatter symbols in reels two, three and four to win five free spins.

Bonus Rounds & Free Spins

Five free spins can be earned when 3 Scatters appear on the middle reels. A bonus game can also be reached when skull symbols are on reels one, three and five: pick 1 of 3 skulls to get a prize. It should be noted that bonuses can be earned simultaneously: Wilds with Skull bonuses or Wilds with free games.

  • It has good music
  • The game offers decent payout options
  • Free Spins have guaranteed Wilds
  • Limitations
